    Sony Walkman S series, anyone?

    Wanted to get the older generation iPod Nano for one of my kids, but apparently not many places still have them. Folks at Best Buy said that the Walkman was directly compatible. I had no trouble transferring iTunes music to the unit, but video seems to be a no-go. I did the online tech support...

    Full Moon beer?

    Just read an interesting article on the effect of the lunar cycle on fermentation and yeast activity...seems interesting, but the article was kinda light on the science behind it. Anyone know anything about this? http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE68N37T20100924

    Anyone have a Garmin NUVI 1300?

    I've been really happy with my Garmin Nuvi 1300 since my wife gave it to me as a Christmas present. That is, up until yesterday. I used it to get to a place about an hour from home to pick up some parts for my dad's sailboat, and while trying to power it back up to find my way back to the...

    PHBT Activate - front end vibration

    Easy - sorry to disappoint, but this probably isn't headed where you thought it might be. I just picked up a '99 4Runner, and it has a pretty good shimmy in the front end at highway speeds between 60 and 70 mph. Pretty sure it needs front brakes as well, because the pedal is pretty low, and...

    Need a new vehicle (probably).....

    Well, some idiot pulled a left in front of me this morning on my way to our daughter's First Communion lunch at a great restaraunt as I was driving through an intersection. It was one of those things where he turned in front of me so close that there was no time to react except for standing on...

    Anyone actually use the "let out more line as they grow" method?

    Need a little input here. My bines seem to have gotten the drop on me this year. For the past two years I hav had them growing up cords that go from heavy duty stakes to eye bolts along the peak on the side of my garage then down to a cleat on the side of the garage. Last year, this was...

    CMC malt question

    Howdy again all. I'm putting together a buy list from North Country Malt, and I had a quick question. Does anyone have experience with using Canada Malting Company's malts? They seem to be quite a bit less expensive than some of the others. I'm getting a sack of Pale Ale malt specifically...

    AHS and Brewmaster's Warehouse shipping question

    OK folks - need some clarification here. NB's flat rate shipping does not extend to full sacks of grain and other big things. I don't see this stipulation anywhere for AHS and BM's sites. Is this correct, or am I missing some fine print somewhere? MY local LHBS will order anything I want in...

    Hardwood lump charcoal suggestions needed!

    I tried the Cowboy brand lump charcoal this past weekend and I was thoroughly unimpressed. Most of the pieces were small enough to fall through the coal grate in the bottom of my Weber kettle, but there were 3 or 4 huge pieces mixed in that never really got going. For the price difference, I'm...

    Bed & Brew Package @ Ommegang Brewery available THIS WEEKEND

    Hoping someone might be able to help a fellow brewer out, and have a great time in the process. My wife and I just had to cancel our room at the Inn at Cooperstown in NY for the Bed and Brew weekend because our babysitter bailed out on us. The package costs around $600 for the weekend for a...

    Electric Trolling Motors?

    Anyone know anything about these things? I've been thinking about putting a side mount and trolling motor setup on my canoe to extend my range a little bit. It's usually my and my two girls - 6 and 8 - who like to "help" with the paddling, if you know what I mean. I have an Old Town osprey...

    Priming sugar/beer temp question

    HI again. My brew buddy and I bottled our first lager last night - NB's Stella clone. Looks and tastes good so far. My question is this - we used John Palmer's priming sugar nomograph to figure out how much sugar to use to get the carbonation level that we wanted. We got into a bit of a...

    Think I need my hearing checked.....

    I've been pretty excited about a new show on Discovery Channel. I heard the promo's for it a few times when the TV was on in the next room. I poured myself a glass of Ed Wort's Haus Pale Ale (one of my favorites), and settled in to watch it. Dammit, I apparently misheard the whole thing...

    Possible shipping solution?

    Has anyone else seen this article? http://news.discovery.com/tech/package-delivery-gains-citizen-shippers.html Seems like a way that some of us might be able to save some shipping fees, but probably pretty hit or miss.....interesting idea though...

    Microwave Popcorn review

    I just made a batch of microwave popcorn using Alton Brown's recipe. It is definitely better and fresher tasting than storebought packages of microwave popcorn, though it does generate a fair number of dishes to clean. I recommend giving it a shot! Here's his recipe: Ingredients *...

    Late malt additions and hot break?

    Just brewed the extract version of NB's Stellar Tois, and followed Bader's instructions for doing the boil with just 1c of DME and the regular hops additions, adding the remainder of the DME and LME at flameout and letting it steep for 10 min. Got to wondering what this does with hot break, and...

    First Lager & Starter Questions

    I’m embarking on my maiden voyage of making a starter and brewing my first lager at the same time. I’ve been reading as much as I can about both, but I still have a few questions. First, I’m making the extract version of the Stellar Trois kit. I plugged the numbers into Mr. Malty, which tells...

    Antique capper issues

    Hi folks - here's my latest problem. I picked up an Everready antique capper via ebay. I tried it out for the first time the other day, and was not pleased with the results. It seems to crimp the caps just fine, but it won't let go of the capped bottles. I have to apply enough twisting force...

    No need to create my own label....

    Just found this while I was poking around online. My last name is Stahl - check out the left column, second row, and center column, last row in the link below. They are old labels from the Stahl Brewing and Malting Co, 1870-1910...

    Chimay Cheese?

    I was just checking out the Chimay website, and learned that they also make a range of cheeses. Has anyone tried any of them? If the cheese is anything like the beer, it should be pretty good. More importantly, anyone know where to find this stuff?
