    Was it you that sent me a text about the wort chiller? If you want the carboys I'd take $40 for both of them, the 3gal one is nice because it's round, not square like a better bottle. I sold the ball locks to Yambor44 but if you want the pinlocks you can take them both for $25. One is in great...

    I'm moving to Miami on July 9th and can't take my brewing stuff with me, if any of you guys want it let me know and I will let it go for cheap. I have 2 or 3 ball locks, 2 pin locks (one needs a new PRV), a 6.5g glass carboy, a 3g plastic carboy, 5g Coleman mash tun, 32qt aluminum kettle wrapped...

    How long ago did you brew it? Temperature control in secondary is MUCH less important than temperature control while active fermentation is happening. Yeast should taste bready, star san would only show up in HUGE concentrations in the beer. When mixed with water it tastes slightly acidic and a...

    Shoot me a PM next time you come up. I move back to Miami around the end of July so hopefully it's before then.

    You won't find Hunaphus in a store, but if you want to try it I have a bottle of the first release left that I'd be willing to share with someone.

    It rotates at Stubbies, Alcove, and the Top. It's on at Salty Dog always I think and the brewery obviously. It was also on at Big Deck last time I was in Cedar Key.

    Really? 10-10-10 is one of my favorite beers. The Barrel aged version is out of this world good.

    They put the Alligator Pale Ale on at Swamp Head last night, it got mixed reviews but I didn't try it.

    Alcove and Stubbies are your two best choices. The Top has a good craft lineup if you want dinner and a good beer. A new place just opened downtown called Tall Paul's Brewhouse, but I haven't been there yet. If you are here Friday evening Swamp Head (the local brewery) just opened their...

    Yep, I was there last night and am going again tonight. If you see me there (skinny guy with tattoos and a big beard) say what's up.

    Dangers of Homebrewing

    I spoke with an old roommate who works with crop diseases (degree from University of Florida in Agricultural Management, currently works as a contractor for the state of Florida checking farms for disease) about this, he said that in the US Fusarium is basically a non-issue for food use barley...

    Dangers of Homebrewing

    It's also only in Belgium, needs to be done in a cross-cultural study to be found to be relevant. Check my note, the abstract for that one wasn't very good. They did find that toxins could be transferred to the final product but toxins had to be present across the entire process for that to...

    Dangers of Homebrewing

    Lots to read as a result of my EBSCO search, primarily dealing with fungi that infect barley such as Fusarium complex and Ochratoxin A. When it comes to Ochratoxin A (symbols that don't show are ^-1): For Fusarium mychotoxins (important note: this is during the brewing process, not the beer...

    Dangers of Homebrewing

    Revvy, I will search EBSCO tonight when I get home and I can see if I can find aticles about pathogen survival in beer. Maybe I can find the whole paper of that abstract you posted.

    Dangers of Homebrewing

    I've heard that but wouldn't put too much faith in it. Beer certainly existed for a short time before agriculture but much of what early people ate were also made from grains. The main theory, although hottly debated, is the Little Dryas forced people to try and grow their own food, they had...

    Dangers of Homebrewing

    Beer may have been brewed later because it was safer than water but the reason beer was first brewed, and the reason it is one of the oldest beverages, is because barley and wheat are the oldest domesticated crops. It also didn't have hops in it 10,000 years ago and it probably was never boiled...

    Bell's Hopslam

    I thought I had missed out on it this year... but then, some 5L kegs showed up at my local beer store and the owner held one for me... I was so happy... I coddled it.

    I just found a old case of craft beer..

    I have had many beers that old and older. Nothing in them will kill you or harm you in any way. They might taste horrible but they could be the best thing you've ever had.
