Wow!  Good for you!  I wish I lived next door to y'all. 

Keep doing what you're doing!

It's OK to shake your carboy/fermenter when it seems limp.  I do that sometimes. :)

Brewing for 18 years.  Obsessed, but not addicted. :)

On the other thread it mentioned qbrew on Linux, but didn't know if was on windows....it is, and that is what I use.  It is basic and free (both are pluses for me).



Yes, there is a qbrew installer for Windows.  It's basic, and totally free.

I didn't like that part much either.

I don't use it anymore, but I have a 5 gallon 240V electric element in a plastic bucket.  When I did use it years ago, I would unplug the dryer, and plug this beast in there with an extended piece of wire.  I just found I didn't like messing with it in the basement with all the extra moisture, cleaning, etc.

I did just run across this, if you have the inclination and cash:

I have 4 tanks, including the one on the grill.  I get them filled at the RV place.  Last time I got 3 filled for $33 bucks.  Much cheaper than the "exchange" type deals.

The Pub / Re: DVR questions
« on: December 03, 2010, 12:09:48 PM »
Good luck.  We just get over-the-air programming and just try and find a DVR that'll support that :(

I've been using Snapstream Beyond TV on my Windows machine hooked up to the TV for years now for over-the-air TV.  It supports many tuner cards with ATSC & QAM.  The guide is free, and there are no monthly fees.  Netflix looks really good this way also.

I'd like to see an "About Us" section on their website...unless I'm totally missing it.  

Ditto.  Can't trust a website without a physical address, even if they are really legit.

I'll check it again tomorrow to see if they add this information with phone #, address, etc.

Equipment and Software / Re: 8 Gallon SS Brew Kettle

Might want to check this one...

http://www.instawares.com/stainless-steel-stock-pot-sps-40.upi-sps40.0.7.htm

...basically the same pot for ~$100 with free shipping.

That's the one I have.  It looks just like the AHB one.  If AHB called it an "Update International SPS-40", then you could easily google it and find it cheaper.  Instawares sells the 20 gallon for $159 shipped.  My LHBS sells an Update brand SS pot also.

Your kitchen or bathroom sink drain or garbage disposal.  Sometimes our drains get a mildewy smell, and I use the two part drain cleaner stuff that foams to get it all gone.

Your carpet.  Get down there & smell it.

The walls.

Your neighbor(s), current & former.

Your ductwork, if any.

You can make some yourself.  Sugar is optional.

For example:

I'll have to try that way to make rice italian style!

I make my basmati and jasmine rice in the microwave since I found out how with a recipe from the cookbook "Moghul Microwave".

Take cups of rice & water, 1 cup rice to 2 cups water ratio, in a microwave dish with a dash of salt.  Cook, uncovered 15-18 minutes on high, or until most of the water is evaporated or absorbed.  Cover and cook on high 4 minutes more.  Fluff with a fork.  I have done this many, many times.  I have only cooked 2 cups of rice at a time this way.
