I forget, what's the pH of StarSan? The FDA now says galvanized steel is safe for use with food if it's not too acidic, like below 5.5 -- I'd have to look it up again.

Were I to waste $20 on these, I would only add those that were close to my target gravity, usually the 10 and 20. The higher gravities don't seem useful, other than showing that fermentation is occurring but there are plenty of other clues for that.i pretty much just wait a week or two after fermentation appears done to make sure its as low as it's gonna go.
Which is what you have to do with these balls as well since you need to be able to see which ones are still floating on top.
Maybe Zymurgy could have a "best and worst brewing gadget of the Month" colum.
My neighbor put in an invisible fence and it is adjustable to how much of a "Warning track" there is. ItI live in fairly built up suburb and we see them around. A neighbor saw one chowing down on a rabbit at dusk the other evening.
may still work for you, Dean. I would not be to confident that coyotes will always keep their distances.
They study quite a bit. I have seen them brazenly walk within 200 yds of a house through my
neighbors property...They lost a cat to them...
I have send dozens of emails and left dozens of voicemails, and this guy refuses to respond. However, he apparently trolls forums looking for anything about him and he leaves messages such as this one located at http://www.topix.net/forum/source/whnt/TTFEUBG9Q93FOFLOU/p3#lastPost
I know Matt well. He not only judged the Sasquatch Homebrew contest for me last year, he brought a keg of their special Sassie beer for the judge's lunch! I got a keg filled with theoir excellent IPA from him recently. IIRC, the Cascadian uses a Belgian yeast and rye, besides being as hoppy as an AIPA.Tell him Greg from Flossmoor says hello when you get a chance. We were sad to see him go but it sounds like he's making the most of his new opportunities.
Talk to Matt at Oakshire. You should anyway, he's a hell of a nice guy and brews some good beers.There's a brewer I know in Eugene who is pushing "Cascadian Dark Ale" instead of Black IPA. I don't think that will stick.
That's a very different beer than a black IPA, though.....
Man, I do not miss LA. Actually, I miss some things, but I don't miss working there.I worked in Boston for a time.....................................
FWIW I consider a 3 hour commute to be BOTH WAYS, not just the occasional bad afternoon ride home
I never understood why anyone living outside of the city would do anything other than heigh your butt to the nearest commuter. I really do miss the T out here, but given the relative sizes of the cities.
And I have co-workers who do that 3 hours... One lives down in Manhattan Beach and it's pure traffic - about the same distance as my commute, much much longer times in. Another at least lives all the way out in Lancaster. By the time he realised he wasn't just working the job "temporarily" his son was well established in the community and he didn't want ot rip him out of there. Egads.
