    Be careful with nearly boiling caustic - gnarly pics, open carefully

    Been a while since I posted. I was cleaning my brewing gear with near-caustic (diswasher detergent) at about 200F. The return hose slipped out of the kettle and shot me in the leg with some hot caustic. The liquid went through my polyester running pants and accumulated on my (cotton) socks. By...

    Hardware part ID

    I recently bought an Oktoberfest beer table, and I've been contemplating making a few more myself from my favorite wood (Maple - of course) and I've got everything squared out except for the leg latch. I can't seem to find this part anywhere in the US - at least so far. Can anyone point me...

    So I installed an "open/close" sign for my homebrewery

    Now the neighbors know when they can/cannot come to have a beer when the garage door is open. :mug: MC

    I stink at poetry but...

    I came up with this tonight. Dropped by local pub, the Publick House, and came up with this: It was the Monday before Christmas, when all through the Publick House, not a creature was drinking, not even a souse. That's all. :) MC

    School me on garage storage/organizing

    My garage has been a terrible mess pretty much ever since I started doing mechanical work on my Jeep(s) a few years ago. Lots of dirt, lots of clutter, lots of junk in the middle of the place, which makes going through somewhat difficult. I have a couple of large toolboxes, and a few "floor...

    Why are they playing all of OUR songs?!?!

    Has anyone noticed how all the back-to-school ads are using songs from the late 80's and early 90's??? I just heard a recorder (flute) version of "Push it!" by Salt'n'Peppa, and that's just ONE of them... Gawd this sucks. Loses its street cred. MC

    What's the nastiest SMELLING treat your dog loves?

    My two Aussies are friggin' bonkers for cow hooves. I like them because they last a long time, but MAN do they stink of cow sh*t. I'm sitting here reading HBT, having a MASS of Kolsch beer (who cares about the glass, I'm not German), and Barley is chewing a cow hoof and it smells like *I*...

    (Yet another) Kegerator build (Stainless Steel)

    I've been using an old school, bottom-fridge/top-freezer fridge that I got for free about 3 years ago. It was my first kegerator, and it's served me well, but it's been hacked a good bit, it's creating a lot of moisture (water puddles inside and outside of it) and it just looks like crap -...

    I love the smell of Simcoe + Citra in the morning!

    Kegged a Simcoe+Citra IPA that had been dry hopping, last night... I disposed of the spent hops through the trash disposal. Now the disposal smells highly of Simcoe + Citra! Winner! MC

    Flavor/aroma stratification?

    I've been noticing that my kegged beers seem to have more hop flavor & aroma at the beginning (first 4-8 pints) than at the end of the keg... Has anyone encountered this problem? I'm a bit puzzled. Example: I entered my Sam Adams clone in a competition and they said it had little hop flavor...
