    RIP John Prine

    late to the thread, but I loved that man's music. I saw him in '76 or '77 with Steve Goodman, two great folk artists. No one else on stage. I really liked the older political and statement pieces - Sam Stone, Hello in There, Paradise, and even the odd Come Back To Us, Barbara Lewis...

    What RPM do you run your grain mill at?

    old DC gearmotor makes for a speedy 62 rpm for mine - but y'know, I dump the grain in and go wash big deal

    How to add permanent volume markings to a kettle (illustrated)

    I couldn't get it to work either - fortunately I have a car battery charger that worked great! I used the black wire to clamp onto the handle of the pot.

    Show us your DIY stir plate!

    Beer is skunked by ultraviolet light, but it takes a combination of the hops, yeast, and barley all together to make that result. I cannot imagine yeast, by itself, is light sensitive in this regard. just my $0.02 :)

    Dry hop: before or after fermentation is over?

    Welcome! Dry Hopping is adding hops for aroma and flavor anytime AFTER fermentation is complete.

    Anybody up for a riddle?

    Fret not, my dear brew friend, the answer is taught in kindergarten. (Or even before, for parents that fret) but most of us nod, if eyes are met.

    Anybody up for a riddle?

    No onions, no garlic, no salt, no beaver. When consonants can't touch, nor vowels, either. No pepper, no broth, only water will do I don't think I would like this stew. _________________________ Of them beware - keep your distance, What happens to them is none of your business. But talk to...

    Fermenter locations

    Welcome ! keep in mind fermenting yeast RAISE the temperature inside your fermenters - comfortable room temps are too warm for ale yeasts... I've measured mine and found a 10°F differential...(thought it was 64F, was really 74F...) Temp control is by far the single best thing I've ever done to...

    Fermentation FAQ - urgent

    Beer Bottle Labels?

    I've always just printed on a decent quality paper (24#, or sometimes 'presentation' paper) and used a glue stick on the back. Labels are pricey until you buy hundreds... Soaking them in warm water, with a little oxyclean or pbw usually does the trick.

    I lost my sweet male Himalayan flame-point to cancer a few years back. (earlier post) He was the best cat I ever had. In these last couple years, I've met a wonderful woman whose only discernible fault is a dislike of beer, but she encourages my habit/hobby, so no worries. She brought two...
