    Peach Farmhouse Ale

    I am working on a recipe for a peach saison/farmhouse ale using the wlp670. The basic inspiration for this beer is Lost Abbey Red Barn adding peaches and the brett. Here is my first go at the recipe: Any comments? I will probably mash at 147F and start fermentation around 70F, hold for...

    What point do you decide this is the best thing to do.... Pretty much the funniest turn of events ever.... Do you think she had a tasting panel? I would probably just stop letting the bottle out of my sight, hidden cameras, get a new job, etc. I mean, you...

    Anyone? Finally got around to watching this last night. Not bad I guess. I will probably keep watching at least for a while.

    Been thinking about doing this for a while now. It is coming up on the warmer months and having something light around is always nice. I want to try using some potato starch to lighten the flavor and body....thinking light American lager-like. Using potato starch... Pros: little to no...

    How much to tip on a haircut?

    I my hair is kind of weird and (so I have been told) hard to cut. I usually go to one of the el cheapo places and get my haircut. It can be really hit or miss. I have had some OK cuts and some really terrible cuts (probably should have refused to pay). So I am going to suck it up and go to a...

    The Pacific

    I have been following this on and off. I guess it was delayed a bit b/c of the writers strike. Scheduled to start in March. I am really looking forward to it. There is a trailer posted on HBO's website:

    Home coffee roasters, a question...

    I am trying to put together my Christmas list for my MIL and I need some relatively low cost items. I have been wanting to get into coffee roasting for a while and have seen a lot of people have success with the air popcorn poppers. I was hoping to get some advice from those in the know...

    Drunk Woman Almost Hit By Train

    They say public transportation is great to use after drinking. But if you can't stand, you might be better off taking a cab... Being that it was Boston I am surprised that people even noticed. (lol, just kidding, (kind of)).

    DIY Ranco Probe Replacement

    It seems that the probe for my Ranco (ETC-111000) has died. I am pretty sure it got wet. So, I am looking for a DIY solution to replacing it. I know they sell the replacement probes, but I do not really want to spend $20 (+shipping) on it. Has anyone done this? I know Yuri posted a thread...

    When I have been drinking I want to cook/eat bacon. But when I have been drinking, I burn the bacon. What a cruel, cruel world. (1L bottle of barley wine is too much for me.)

    On August 11 AHA members were sent an e-mail concerning the Small Brewers Caucus (US House of Reps.). Here is the letter (I thought someone posted here but I could not find it): I sent my Representative a brief e-mail concerning this. Never expected to get a response. Today: Wow. I am...

    Water profile for English bitter

    I am brewing an English style bitter tomorrow and I am looking for a good water profile to shoot for. I know the Burton profile is historic and all, but I am not going to run the So4 up to 800ppm, not going to happen. Anyone have a profile they have used that has turned out well? I will...

    King of Gods IPA

    I mash at 151F. Ferment to completion at 67F, raising the temperature at the end to encourage full attenuation. Keg and dry hop in the keg for 10-14 days at room temperature. Carbonate to 2.5 volumes. This beer came out quite nice. A showcase of CTZ (in this case Zeus) hops. Very hoppy...

    Making Work Pay....FYI

    SWMBO was commenting on how little they were withholding for Federal Taxes from this month's paycheck. It is a result of the implementation of the "Making Work Pay," designed to give singles a $400 reduction in taxes and couples $800. This was done by changing the tax withholding tables and...
