    Temagami Portaging

    Wow. What a trip. We found our own private island, with no lights of any kind in the visible distance. Caught a 10# walleye and a whole bunch of bass. Mist, trees, rocks, not a single person other than my group for 5 days. Wolves, deer, loons. I am nicely tanned, exhausted and had one...

    Worst addiction yet...

    TY I think what helped me most was this: smoking is not about the cigarette in yuor hand, its about theanticipation of the next one. Makes the one in your hand much less attractive. My mild weight gain is likely a combo of being sedentary recently, quitting smoking, and homebrewing with...

    Worst addiction yet...

    Congrats on not smoking! I've been off them for 3 months now. But, as a consequence I've gained a little weight from my brewing monster. As far as addictions go, it could be much worse

    Gorp = done. Lots of cashews and cranberrys :) Plastic - too late. Good idea, but I will just have to take my chances. EDIT: I could put it in a few plastic watter bottles...but usn't it bad to leave them in there for awhile? I might just have some binoculars lying around. Good call...

    Temagami Portaging

    Right now I'm just so anxious to get going it is unbelievable. I've stopped going over -whatdoineedwhatdoineed- because I'm quite sure I've got everything...but we shall see. I've got a brew that could be bottled but I'm not gonna do it. It can wait till I get back. We've got good variety...

    Temagami Portaging

    We are canoeing 8 hours away from where the nearest motorboat is allowed so the fishing is going to be awesome. Its a very strange feeling to know that in 8 hours the only stuff I will have for a week is what I schlep in on my back. That being said, we are not paddling hard every day. Long...

    A modest proposal, in support of our friend...

    In regards to the crystal sweetness you mentioned you were looking for, why not remove a small bit of wort and boil it down to a syrup? Wouldn't that impart the crystal-like sweetness? That should be a good place to start I think...

    Water: Tap vs. Bottle

    I actually really like the taste of the tapwater from my city. Go an hour away though and I hate it.

    using ale yeast to produce a lager

    I just did a munich lager with nottingham ale yeast. Almost spot on, though not *exact* Besides, i didn't really lager it. I just bottled after 10 days :)

    The perils of switching LHBS

    Yup to both of these. No way the crystal made the gravity jump like that.

    Student loans

    A student loan is likely the best deal on a loan you will ever get (at least here in Canada). That might not be enough incentive to get one though. If someone offered you the least invasive nostril penetration would you take it? Seriously though, it is WAY better than a credit card. :mug:
