    burn on inside of stainless steel brewing kettle

    didnt wanna hijack...but this is kinda related to burning and oxy-clean w SS! :drunk: ....I did about a 32 hour soak in oxy-clean to try and loosen up some scorching on the bottom...it got rid of them pretty well after I scrubbed with the blue scrubbie. But now it left this grayish matte...

    Noob Experiment

    Congrats....sounds like your going to have beer to me! But why sucha small boil? Is your equipment limiting you? Taking into consideration all the water loss and straining of the trub from the boil...seems like your 2 gallons that you boiled went down to about .5 and you added 5 gal of water...

    Washing Question

    it looks like trub to me...could be picture though, I cannot tell for sure. The trub is going to look dark and gritty (sometimes you can see the old hop particles n etc...)..the yeast is going to look creamy white (beige)...was this in the fridge and for how long? It still looks pretty cloudy...

    Help with Google. IT guys please help.

    the deep crawl supposedly happens once a month....but they say they do smaller crawls all the time. But yeah basically, a site is going to be hosted off a server...and domain name is just a shortcut name for the server's address (these can be changed anytime). Why are you changing domain names...

    SWMBO blind taste test

    If you really want to have your own microbrewery then by all means take into account what "others" think of your beer...but personally I was sick of spending $10+ on a six pack of good beer...so its all about what I like.
