    Interesting pics of life, brewing, whatever

    I found some of those stick-on picture hangers as I was draining Starsan from a FV the other day. They were left over in a package I'd bought to hang the framed coasters months ago now. I'd framed the first set of beer labels, as some of you may know. Completely forgot to post the hung results...

    A funny thing happened on the way to the closet

    I was looking for an old Crossman 760 pump I'd bought for plinking & hunting small game down by The Black River when I was a teen. Searched our MB's closet to no avail. But to what should my trifocaled eyes appear? A nearly complete old 1st variant Crosman model 160! In VGC too. Just needs a...

    Found this posted on my Facebook page. Goes in line with your racking tube/cane/auto siphon. Doesn't let any air in either. Looks interesting? https://www.facebook.com/bouncer.beer/

    One gallon Lambrusco recipe?

    I haven't made wine in decades, but I find that since SWMBO wants to cook with wine again, and being a type 1 diabetic, beer no longer agrees with her. And since we loved splitting a bottle of Lambrusco when we were dating some 39 years ago, I started collecting equipment to make one gallon...

    Mumme German festival ale, heavy version

    As explained in the other thread, that recipe is a bit lighter English version of the original English recipe @ 7.2%. This one is a hybrid of bittering hops that replace the Blessed Thistle used for bittering in the other recipe. All other gruits remain. In that one, the Themes Valley ale yeast...

    Spruce essence for branches?

    The English gruit ale version of the German Mumme I'm fermenting would normally use 2ozs of fir branches in the boil. Couldn't find any when I ordered the gruits, but I do have 2ozs of the essence coming. I'm going to add it to the boiling water for the priming solution. How much of the spruce...

    I had a couple beers yesterday while surfing YouTube for something new. I found these " gravity carts" built by guys who were winners at the luge bit.
