    bottling wand mishap

    I have a very cheaply made spring loaded bottling wand (will be upgrading this weekend) that has a tendency to stick in the open position. I was bottling my Hefe yesterday and the wand got stuck, so I am trying to fill the bottle, hand it off to my assistant to cap and move the wand to the next...

    BMC conspiracy?

    Yesterday the company I work for had one of its after-work outings. Once a quarter the company sponsors a get together somewhere everyone can talk, play games, and drink. This outing was at a bar called GameWorks (arcade games, darts, assorted other fun stuff). The company provided everyone...

    Possible Idea

    Being very new to this hobby myself I know it is sometimes hard to DWRHHB. What would you guys think of posting a sticky thread that had pictures of "strange" looking fermentation that is actually ok vs actually infected batches. That way when a new brewer (like myself and others) starts to...

    Best thing about this hobby

    Well the best thing about this hobby is the BEER:mug: but the second best thing is it rewards laziness. I have a Brown Ale that is ready for bottling today. I was all set to bottle it, I went out and got the priming sugar, everything was set, but I got distracted (not a difficult thing in...

    Fruit Beers

    I am relitively new to this hobby. I have brewed three beers so far (see sig). I have always enjoyed "different" or "unusual" beers and have been wanting to brew a fruit beer. I think part of the appeal of this hobby is being able to create something you don't normally readily find. I am...
