I really hope that's been Photoshopped. That's a really nasty, vile looking creature. OTOH can you eat them like escargot?
Do they look like this?
(This is from a previous post by tschmidlin that left an indelible impression)
I've dropped into grain bins in the morning and been surprised (at least the first time) by rattlers in western NE. Even then they didn't strike. I stood still while the rest of the building team raised the bin a few inches and the snakes all left. Live and let live, I guess. Except for rabbits in my flower beds. Rabbits in my yard are dead rabbits if I can make it happen.
To each their own "Dude". If I see a Rattler it's dead. We have plenty of Bull Snakes & stray cats to take care of the mice. It's one less chance to be bitten in my mind. Really not sure what being a vegetarian has to do with it though? Cheers!!!
Hoegaarden and homemade unsweetened hibiscus tea it is! I actually drank a Canadian hibiscus beer today called Rosee d'Hibiscus by Biere du Ciel. It is significantly darker than I would need, and not particularly flavorful, though a bit floral (presumably from the hibiscus). Based on this tasting, if the hoegaarden with jamaica tastes good, I will hibiscify one keg full of wit and leave the other keg plain.
Well, the benefit of the hibiscus is that I can add it after the beer has been finished. That would also allow me to spare one keg if the first one comes out looking funny. But pictures I have found on the internet of hibiscus beers don't quite look right. And I don't find Jamaica from a taqueria to be particularly delicious... still not sure if I should stick to the original plan of carafa special II or if I should go with the hibiscus tea idea. Is there a way to make hibiscus tea that would limit its flavor impact and enhance the color impact?
So you're saying you would need to pressurize your carboy with more pressure than in the keg? That seems dangerous to me and I mostly use plastic buckets so I cannot pressurize a plastic bucket. Your also assuming that I connect to the beer out line and I do not do that either I insert an open end of the plastic tubing into the bottom on the keg.I release the keg pressure valve before transferring so it doesn't take much pressure to transfer.
I would consider filling the keg through the beer-out tube. Less splashing.
With a bucket you could easily siphon it into the keg.
I think oxidation is a big thing in homebrewing because our surface to volume ratio is so high. But if you drink the beer within a few weeks it shouldn't matter.
So then how do you fill your keg full of beer if you have it sealed and full of co2? I usually rack using an auto-siphon and up to this point have inserted the tubing into the top of the keg with the lid off of course.
How long can Star San sit in keg? I know you don't want to keep it around too long or it's cloudy and not as useful. Is prolonged contact to the keg OK?
1/2 lb 1-minute Oats (man I hope I didn't have to cook those).
You're fine. The 1-minute (and for that matter, the 5-minute and instant) oats have all already be gelatinized so you can just put them straight into the mash.
