    Help Me Get Into Guns...

    Thanks for that. I appreciate the insight. But obviously you have never seen my coffee maker!!! LOL I'm an espresso fiend!!!! Gaggia, FTW!!!!! Haha. Seriously though, I see your point. it's a whole philosophical thing relating to gun ownership and use. I find that interesting as well. Thanks...

    Help Me Get Into Guns...

    So, I got my FOID card, but I'm not really into guns. I do have a track record of indulging in risky hobbies with a perfect safety record. I've raced cars (wish I could afford to do more), I ride crotch rockets 12 months a year, I have flown airplanes. I tend to approach things from a very...

    Favorite Rum

    Seriously, what's the skinny on Sailor Jerry. I hear a lot of people talking about it, but it's cheaper than Bacardi and I personally blame Bacardi for most peoples' hatred of rum, so I've been loathe to try something else in that range. Good rum is as good as a fine scotch or whiskey, for...

    Did jesus drink beer

    I just heard that the pope is getting a Twitter account. I think I'm going to ask him directly.

    Did jesus drink beer

    But now, take that a step farther and consider the implications that fall from the use of "wine" rather than beer or "fermented drink". Wine is made by the terroir, the territory, in which the grapes are grown. The Vintner does not create the wine, he merely uses the grapes that the season gives...

    Did jesus drink beer

    So what you are saying is that I perform miracles on a more frequent basis than Jesus did? I mean, Jesus turned water into fermented drink once and people are talking about it 2000 years later. Me, I do that just about every week. So I guess that means I'm probably going to be like...

    Do States with motorcycle helmets laws ...

    Being made of polycarbonate, the face shield is clearly shatter-resistant. And it protects the eyes when in the down position, therefore it is "eye protection" when it is down. However, when you raise it up, it no longer is protecting your eyes. So I'm not sure how much clearer it needs to be...

    The anti-halloween thread.

    LOL Wow! What you need to do is have fun with it. Dress up like a scarecrow, wear dark glasses, ski cap, hat, bulky clothing to obscure your breathing. Sit motionless on your porch with a sign hung around your neck stating "please take only one." If the kid takes one, remain motionless and...

    Anyone out there willing to raise a pint to celebrate our new addition to the family?

    lol @ dfc Congrats. I've pulled my first pint of roasty stout here in celebration. It's not quite like having a newborn, I suppose. But I feel your joy. Congrats again. May you both grow together.

    A new companion

    I grew up with 2 GS's (successively) and a neighbor friend growing up is now on her 4th. Fantastic family pets, uncommonly smart and intuitive. Nice dog!

    Liar! You can't just "claim" to have a German Shepard without posting pics. It's unnatural!

    Legality

    I'm sure Monsanto is working on (or already has) a genetically modified barley seed just for you. :cross: There's only so many varieties of barley (and that's fine by me) and all the types of malt needed already exist for all the types of beer that exist. What you really need invent a new...

    Legality

    No lock needed. He is asking about using fermentables in a legal business It is no different from using Briess-brand malt. You are using a brand name product and converting it to your own uses. Some country wine recipes might use Crystal-brand sugar. The only difference is that if you...

    Legality

    True. But yes. Once you own the juice, you can do with it as you please. However, you can't use their trademarked name without permission. "Made with Welch's Grape juice" wouldnt be allowed. Made With Grape Juice would be fine.

    first all grain recipe suggestions

    If you separate the mashing and lautering steps from the boil, there's no reason that a partigyle brew day would be any more complicated than doing a single beer... In fact, it'll make your math easier. It'll just take longer. Plan on basically a full day to pull off your first AG double brew...
  17. Sir Humpsalot

    first all grain recipe suggestions

    Yes. But the second runnings are still pretty close to the same style as the first. Not that much lighter really.
  18. Sir Humpsalot

    first all grain recipe suggestions

    Darker beers use darker grains. So if you started with a highish gravity brown ale, your second running will be a lower gravity brown ale. If you wanted to do a brown and a pale, you would do the pale, pull out the first runnings, then add some darker malts into the MLT to make a brown beer. But...

    first all grain recipe suggestions

    I actually think it is easier to go partigyle. Just keep a bit of extra DME around in case you need to bump up your gravity. There's really nothing difficult about doing a partigyle brew. It is actually a great way to fill your fermenters and get your pipeline flowing.
  20. Sir Humpsalot

    first all grain recipe suggestions

    Generally, yes. Unless you use steeping grains. I have been thinking about doing a 2-row only batch in my 5gal MLT to maximize the extraction of fermentables for 10 gallons of beer... And then just steeping specialty grains in the 2-row extract.
