    old beer in the kegerator (very old)

    Triple is a bit too sweet. It was my first attempt and I made the candy sugar to put into it. I think the mystery beer was a bunch of leftover 2 row and whatever hops I had left after I had harvested my bines.

    old beer in the kegerator (very old)

    Hi guys. Haven't been super active in a couple of years. I got an itch to brew this afternoon and started pulling out my brew supplies. I cracked open my kegerator for the first time in at least two years and remembered that I had 3 cornies in there. I know one is a cider. And one is...

    I have a pf-9. Its definatly a purpose built ccw gun. I personally would not recommend it to anyone who is looking beyond a small carry piece. The trigger sucks, and the recoil is painful. It does a very good job as a 9mm pocket gun though. I carried mine for a few years before switching...

    20 lb of sugar and a jar of yeast nutrient

    I bumbled my way through making 2.5 lbs of the 290* syrup today. Came out well, although the color is not as dark as the pic. Of note, I used a mesh skillet screen (we always used to for bacon splatter) and poured the 2nd water addition through it. It saved me from the splatter when the...

    New Brewer from Oregon

    Welcome, from up the road a bit.

    rusted steel

    It will burn off, depending on how close to the flame. This is a high temp clear coat. It would probably hold up, unless it had direct flame contact.

    CO2 Current Pricing

    $13 for a 5lb swap out. Not sure the price of a bigger tank, but I doubt it would be much more. My weld tank of 75/25 co2/argon was $15 for a 10lb or $18 for a 20lb. It made more sense for me to buy a bigger tank, since it costs me around $10+ in gas money to make it to the weld shop.

    Sizing your Chest Freezer for Corny Kegs

    I just looked online, they have the 8.8 for $350, and the 8.7 for $269. The 8.7 is online exclusive, and out of stock. I would wait for it to come back, if it can fit 6 on the floor. I am at the tipping point of buying a Kenmore 8.8. I have to go down to sears tommorow and see how many I...

    Wet shaving thread.

    I tried the with, cross, against. Method. It gave me ingrown hairs. The against the grain part really tears up my face. Now I just do with and across. I have only had a few shaving bumps in the past year. As for time. I would imagine I could get it done in a few minutes (I only shave...

    Played around with a press today.

    forgot to mention. My gravity on my apple cider was 1.040. My buddy said his yeast ferments down to 1.000. I dont know how its going to turn out, or how long. We basically crushed the apples, tossed the cider into a carboy. Then pitched the yeas cake on top of it. It really grated...

    Played around with a press today.

    A buddy of mine rented an apple press for the day. He hosted an apple pressing party. I hit up my father in laws Johnson and golden delicious trees and picked about 70 lbs of apples. The press was made locally (Elmira Oregon) I think it was made by corral?. Anywas, We ended up Pressing...

    Man, I love Apfelwein

    I have been messing around with the recipe (Original is still very damn tasty). I added 2 gallons of peach juice with the last batch. Didnt leave enough headroom for krausen (is it called krausen with cider/apfelwien?) and my airlock blew out with krausen, I left it in place and ended up...

    Liquid Panty Remover Apfelwien

    I messed around with a batch of Ed Worts original recipe last year. I did 3 gallons apple juice, 2 gallons peach/apple (all from walmart). With 3 lbs dextrose. I racked to keg, had a couple or few pints. Then added a 2L of diet sprite. Which backsweetened to a very palatable apple/peach...

    Wet shaving thread.

    I tried it when I first swapped over. It seemed to dry my face out. My skin is not overly sensitive, but if I shave incorrectly, I break out like a 13 year old. I am using an alchohol free aftershave moisturizer. So far its been very kind to my face.

    Getting drunk to help train cops

    I need to ask some of my cop buddies if they have one of those coming up soon. It would be a hoot. Plus I would get to know how far gone I am based on the amount of drinks. I do know that the local PD uses the booze they confiscate. So it would be the cheap stuff they take off of kids.

    American Amber Ale Mojave Red

    Brewed this up a week and a half ago. I missed my gravity, had excessive boil off. And I mis read and dry hopped right off the bat. I bought enough ingredients to brew it again. Hopefully I have my process down with the next brew!

    Why is my end wort quantity so low?

    2.1 gallons per hour. I boiled up 5 gallons of water today and measured the post boil amount.

    Official Broken Hydrometer Count

    Two. The last one I sat on. I though the cracking noise was coming from my burner. I stared at it for at least five minutes while I racked my brain as to why it would make a noise like that. I figured it out when I stood up.

    My Stirplate... Cheap and Easy Build...

    Just built one today. OP saved me about $110 from what the LHBS was selling them at. I did have to monkey with the magnets a bit. Ended up using both the magnets I salvaged from the old HDD.

    Why is my end wort quantity so low?

    :D My recycler will not take glass in the recycling bin. so I use a 5 gallon bucket. Which I used to stand on while I double checked my hlt temps. I try not to drink and play with boiling liquids :D
