I managed to get a streak of tokayer yeast (that's how they have it labeled) from Greg Doss at Wyeast. I'm going to freeze it and then grow some up to make a mead with it.

Anyone use one of these?That's what I use, I love it. It's super easy, and the stainless racking cane doesn't break.
Any thoughts on the product?
Black Cherry Ale. How long should i keep it at 20psi for??If it's for a week or two don't use 20 psi, just set it to 8-9 psi. That'll get you 2.4-2.5 volumes of CO2 in the beer at 34F. You could go with 20 psi for shorter, but you risk over carbonating the beer. Since you're not in a rush, I think the lower pressure is the way to go.
Would love to see some photos of how people have their breweries setup. I tell you those kegs are a pain in the rear in terms of space.I added some "uprights" to one of my shelving units that extends it to the ceiling. Now I stack kegs on their side on the top shelf, 3 to a row and however high I need. I can fit at least 15 kegs there, but I never have that many empty at one time.
Fresh makes sense, wet just doesn't, so I'm on a one-man campaign to get people to change. I'm not grumpy about it, I just don't think wet is a good term at all. And I don't think anyone else really cares.
Some call the hops straight off the bine wet. It looks like you like fresh as the term..
Should Dave Wills change the name of his company.
These guys know a little about hops too.
Just pointing out where I learned the terms, not being too OCD (or am I???).
Edit - Denny is right. The talk by James Altweis was one of the best of the conference, I would say outstanding.
The Vietnamese engineer who works for me says something that sounds like "fuh" and insists that you're a dummy for saying anything else and don't you try and test her.It's pronounced "fuh" around here too. These places are all over the place, Yelp comes back with 373 when I search for pho in Seattle ,there's 10 places within a few blocks of where I work. Crazy.
Ever have a Jersey Turnpike?Ugh, that's narsty!
RA = SRM x 4.5Great stuff Martin, thanks. What do you would recommend if you have negative RA, since the equation doesn't work in that range. Just either brew really light beer or adjust your water?
This provides an appropriate ballpark target RA for brewing water.
