    Cheaper beer

    I think most of us get into the hobby to produce beers we can't buy. Considering even the cheapest equipment necessary (been there, done that), it would be cheaper to go out and buy some Natty Light or something.

    He's looking only for ales.

    Making a kayak for my wife

    Nice work. I built a 9' jon boat several years ago using the stitch n glue technique. Remember to get some UV protection on that baby! The epoxy will degrade in the sun over time.

    Southwest Airlines Rocks!

    As a parent of 2 small children I say.............GOOD WORK SW. It's a privilege to fly airlines not a right. Sure you pay to do it, but once you endanger others, you should be removed and tickets refunded. I think SW did what should have been done and nothing more/nothing less. I...

    $50 Keggle

    $50 is a bit steep. I recently got 3 of them: $20/$15/free. Tough to argue at $50 really.

    Water Report Questions - mg/LCaCO3

    Just buy some Florida spring water. That should be Pilsen-like soft, unless they treat it with minerals for taste.

    Beer from Germany

    IMO, I'd go for any "Oktoberfestbier" or "Oktoberfest/Marzen". Either designation will mean you're getting the full 6-month-aged classic.

    Vodka in the airlock for beer?

    Starsan for me. Simply because I have some sitting around in a small bucket everytime I brew.

    Cleaning and Sanatizing Cornies

    About the same here. Every 5 batches or so I'll disassemble. Otherwise I use some PBW for a couple hours and rinse. I have StarSan in one keg at all times. When the keg filled with starsan is used, I pour the starsan into the newly rinsed keg. I simply don't worry about Starsan sitting in a...

    fermentation cabinet or all-grain equip?

    I'd vote to make a son-of-a-ferm chiller and go AG. That will allow you to ferment ales at correct temps. The two together (if you go with a cooler and turkey fryer) should cost under $100 if you find what you needs at Lowes.

    Promash information transfer

    Here's what I'm doing. I click on the print button. I get the options and choose copy to clipboard. Then I can't get into it. I try to export as a text file. Same thing. I think I'm doing something wrong that is easily fixable, but I can't figure it out. I'm not even drinking...

    Promash information transfer

    I think Vista is killing me. I don't have a notepad option that I can find. I've been trying everything I can think of to get the info into a document/notepad but can't do it.
