This one does an interesting take on forming the list.

Yeast and Fermentation / Don't buy that stir plate
« on: August 31, 2013, 04:28:12 PM »
. A yeast starter is made by scooping out a cup or two of your wort into a sanitized container about half way through the boiling time. A plastic cup or Tupperware type container will work just fine. You cool it down to around 75° or the optimal temerature for pitching your yeast, just as you would cool your full pot of wort. Then, you add the yeast package to it and wait. In about 30 or 40 minutes you’ll begin to see some action in your wort cup, some foaming and churning. This means the yeast cells are happy and beginning to multiply. When your boil is done, you cool your wort to the correct temperature and pour in the slurry. Now, you will have added more cells than were originally in the package and fermentation will be a bit more efficient. You can also wait up to 24 hours before pitching the starter at which point you should have about 6 times the original number of yeast cells.

This is from the FAQ section of a on-line home brew shop. They prefer to "make a starter" for dry yeasts. Clearly your wasting time and money propagating yeast when it is just that easy.  :o

I had a good laugh at most of their (mis)information.

"LOUDER THAN LOVE-The Grande Ballroom Story" trailer
The Greatest Untold Story in Rock and Roll History.... Until NOW!!!! While the West Coast was groovin’ to the sounds of the “Summer of Love” in 1967, Detroit was pumping out a hard-driving, gritty, raw sound that was “LOUDER THAN LOVE” The Grande Ballroom.....

Shameless plug for my brother in law who did the film editing for this, about a four year side project.
It premieres in Detroit on April 5th, will show in Ann Arbor on April 9th, Chicago April 12-14th and the rock and roll hall of fame(Cleveland) May 16th. If you like rock and roll and history you'll probably enjoy this.

I have some friends who are getting married and they have asked if I and 3 others would make a 5 gallon batch for consumption at the reception. Does anyone know if that is legal or where to find that information out.  They have a friend licensed to serve alcohol who will man the beverage station. It will be at a rented facility. Thanks.
