    Slivers (or splinters)

    So, I was reading the thread about the Taint Injury and some of the comments made me think of this story. About a month ago, last Saturday in August, weekend before school started, my daughter was at a friend's house and got a sliver in her foot. Not too surprising, she never has learned, in...

    Leaving immersion chiller in boil

    Any reason not to leave the immersion chiller in for the entire duration of the boil instead of putting it in during the last 10 to 15 minutes?

    Ale vs. Lager Yeast

    What is the difference between lager and ale yeasts? Not that one is top fermenting and one is bottom fermenting. What do they do differently, chemically? I was told this by Ray McNeill, but being totally inebriated by much good homebrew and microbrew, I can never remember...

    Cisco Brewers - Whale Tale Pale Ale

    Has anybody tried this? Anybody have a recipe for it? Got a basket of Cisco Brewers beer second hand from my boss. They are located in Nantucket, Mass. Tried the Whale Tale Pale Ale tonight. I'm not a big fan of the super bitter, hoppy IPAs, so I wasn't too sure if I was going to care for...

    Damn, I remember when I was a kid, I had a nice unique name. Nobody else was named Evan. Then in college, way back in the '80's I met another Evan. Not too bad, but he was a friend of my roommate. Again, not too bad, my roomy could just call us by our first name and last initial. Problem...

    House Hunting

    Haven't had a lot of time for brewing lately. Been vacationing, working, and house hunting. I've seen some interesting houses. One I saw today would have been perfect, only it was waaaaay to big. It was an old farm house. The structure was in excellent condition. The only problem was...

    Drip, drip, drip....

    Nothing like having one of your best brew days ever, hitting mash temp spot on, temp staying all hour, volume as planned. Then you put it into your keggle with your fancy new hop screen setup. Turning on the heat and then realizing that you forgot to put any thread seal on your valve:( ...

    I love bourbon. Back when I didn't now there was any beer other than BMC, I thought I didn't like beer. But I liked rum, tequila, gin, whiskeys, etc., pretty much most hard liquors. I have never been much for shots, though I like to sip. I also like mixing. My favorite drink of all time is...
