I had to post...going viral.  Have a few beers/wine and discuss...


A husband, literally dying of Stage 4 cancer, suspects his wife (Jackie Wheelington aka Jackie Milander) is cheating on him with a classmate (Jason Naumann) and confronts the couple; they swear they are just friends. Husband then catches them again, in the basement parking lot of Southern Methodist University, and decides he's had enough...see a short clip of what happens next

Beer Recipes / Lawnmower Beer

Spring/Summer is coming quick!

I'm looking for a simple, light, crisp and refreshing all grain lawnmower recipe.

Does anyone have some recipes they'd care to share?  


Thanks!

all i usually so is closed.  this was an accident or just plain screw up.  either way, i have it in my lager refrigerator at 55..i just don't know where the seal compromise is.  i'm not going to try and find out right now!!  :)

Or you could always just put it in your swimming pool when it's 34 degrees.  ;)

I'm no expert on open fermentation and frankly it kind of scares me, but apparently it is happening everyday in breweries around the world as this picture shows.

I beleive the krausen layer on top somewhat protects the fermenting beer from the detrimental effects of oxidation during the process.


I had actually seen something about Sierra Nevada doing their Bigfoot Barleywine like that.

I think if we knew what we inhaled and ingested daily on a microscopic level, we would all change our ways.

Not to mention the fact of what we sleep with....  :o




HOLY FREAKIN' CRAP Bluesman!  What the heck's gotten into you?!?!?!

Well, hobby for me.  By the time this is over, I'll be  mad beer scientist with bunsen burners, microscopes, gerbil tubes and periodic tables all over my walls!

I say 8 weeks...but it will actually be more like 6.  I dont plan to transfer to a secondary.  I've done this recipe several times before and rushed it a few times before as well.  i'm just going to "set it and forget it".  well....of couse doing d-rest and such...but not lifting the lid for 6 weeks..

Thanks guys!  Denny, you're right..WAY better.  I'll post a pic of what it looks like.  It'll be blurry..  So basically a keggle with a bucket lid, with rubber around the lid.  The bungees are really tight and do a good job at holding the bucket lid down tight.  I've done one batch with this and it worked well...airlock was active.  This batch..not so much.

Hey Kaiser...yeah, it's not wide open, it's just not a "tight" seal.  I'm not even going to mess the lid until 8 weeks...then I'm going to remove the lid to transfer it into kegs and purge with CO2.

thanks for the link!
