    HSA and whirlpool question

    You can use Oxy Clean, Powdered Brewery Wash, or nuke with Sodium Hydroxide. OxyClean leaves a smell that needs a lot of rinsing.

    Fresh grain flavour

    Pot calls kettle black.... how do you know that? Your grain selection isn't going to do a thing for flavor if there's a poor mashing process. What MrPowers outlined above is correct. It's not complicated. No fancy or special equipment is required. Just a little focus on some minor process...

    Mash rakes and low oxygen

    I don't know of anybody using rakes who do LOB, at least not at the hobby level. I used a mash paddle for a year before switching to pump and then a HERMS. The pump was mostly for recirculating at lauter time. HERMS kind of changed all that. A rake I guess is OK, if you do it quickly and...

    Blonde Ale Miller Lite (Really Triple Hopped)

    The closest thing I made to this was without enzyme. It was a Grätzer. 3 lbs of pilsner and 3 lbs of wheat malt. Then hopped to 40 IBU with saaz. Pitching S-05. The grist was 100% oak smoked. Tasted like light beer and smoked ham. Actually was really good.

    Blonde Ale Miller Lite (Really Triple Hopped)

    This beer, as an ale, should be in a brut style or a malt liquor maybe. Maybe a brut cream ale. Maybe it best as a hybrid style. I'm of the mindset of making what I like and something for family and friends. In 14 years of brewing, I have never thought to enter a judging competition. That's...

    Buy yourself a milk crate or find an old one in the garage and repurpose it for this activity.

    Maybe they're a green roofing place that staffed only with botanists and forestry people. Their gardening and tree service morphed into a green roofing business.

    VPN'S & Internet Security

    Out of curiosity... My work PC is encrypted. So does that mean it's a) encrypted locally b) leaving encrypted through the network or c) is only encrypted thru the VPN? FWIW - I have Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client on my PC. Which is what we call "the VPN" at work.

    VPN'S & Internet Security

    My chromebox is not corrupted. It's completely sandboxed. Meaning the OS can't be modified. It reinstalls every time it's rebooted. It reboots in under 7 seconds. It's much like a mobile phone like desktop but more like a thin client. If not actually that.

    VPN'S & Internet Security

    I see VPNs differently. Maybe I'm wrong as I never studied it professionally. I've used I2P for a few years. I see it as software that takes your communication and encrypts it with an key, then splits it into 2 or more channels, transmits it to the recipient. That recipient has the same VPN...
