    Online TV

    I want to ditch satellite TV in the worst way. I have Netflicks and would use Hulu. My problem is that I need access to Korean language shows and I haven't had any luck finding a set up that would work for me. :mad: EDIT: Anyone using those new TV antennas for HD local? They look cool.

    Brewing with soft water (Water Softener)

    I always use the bypass on my softener when brewing. My water is fairly hard but since I tend to do darker beers there isnt much of an issue. If I wanted to do lighter styles I would go with distilled or store bought water ( with known mineral profile ) and build it up with salts as needed.

    Massive infection problem

    Do you completly disassemble the spigot on the bottling bucket? I do not just mean unscrewing and seperating the spigot from the bucket. You can pull the piece that controls the flop out of the rest of the assembly. If you don't pull this apart , clean and sanitize you are almost guranteed...

    Corny kegs were designed specificaly to hold dilue solutions of phosphoric acid. Read the label of a Coke or Pepsi and look at the ingredients.

    A paraphrase of an old Rodney Dangerfield joke: I once went to a fight (boxing ) and a hockey game broke out... Guess you could replace Hockey with Soccer

    So.... (winter brewing)

    Ah Nuts! (using nuts in brewing)

    The Chestnut route is interesting. I just roasted a ton of them and deshelled. Chestnuts are about 70% carbohydrate, so I think I will have to also gelatinize and then add to my mash for conversion. Don't know what style to try this in.... Chestnut stout? Chestnut IPA ( for the mouthfeel)

    ring in carboy

    If this is mineral scale mechanical cleaning will be difficult at best and will eventually ruin a better bottle. For scale you need a concentrated acid. Since vinegar dosent work you need more horsepower. If you have access to HCl or phosphoric acid you can dilute as needed. No need for...

    Do you have your strike water dialed in yet?

    I do. For a 25 lb grain bill I mash with 168 f water. This gives me 153 F in the. MLT. Are you adjusting the water temp as a function of the grain bill? Preheating your MLT?
