Zymurgy / Re: Zymurgy android app; approximate location permission?
« on: April 15, 2014, 02:35:09 PM »
Most like because the SDK from Google turns off all privacy measures automatically and makes the developer force them to be turned off.  They also have recently made some controls unavailable to the user period.  Without location data, Google can't track you as well, which means they do make as much money.

The apps may not cost $$ but they are not free.

I hear you and feeling rather stupid. For some reason I allowed myself to be blindsided by the trigger keywords AHA and Zymurgy. Note to my 56 year old brain!

Thanks

All Grain Brewing / Re: Late Water Adjustment
« on: March 22, 2014, 06:08:09 AM »
Thanks guys, the bicarbonate was calculated using John Palmer's spreadsheets to hit the desired SRM. I'm new to water treatment. I just read the book Water: A comprehensive guide for brewers and some of Palmer's other stuff within the month as an introduction so I admit I may well be making some rookie mistakes. I basically use beer smith and Palmer's spreadsheet/range guidelines as my guide.

Try Bru'nwater.  I get much more accurate results with it than others.

+ 100 Brun'water has a learning curve, it's worth it.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Stoopid Polar Vortex!
« on: January 26, 2014, 08:56:44 AM »
When I read that we're in for potentially weeks of bitter cold weather in NY all I could think was..."man I can brew a lot of lagers now."

+10 I live in NE Wisconsin; polar vortex bring it on! I have 5 years of firewood and 2 years of propane. The
vortex is saving me money on heating fuel and homebrewing. I'm currently on my second pint and saving money
as I rattle the keyboard. On a side note, the Mrs and I toast the house up on some Saturdays and walk around
in our underwear in the winter. It's just one reason we love living in the woods. Life is grand!

How much firewood and propane is that, exactly?

11 full cords or 33 face cords; I buy a full semi load of hardwood every 4 years. That was $925 last summer. 500 gallons of propane which is purchased in the summer very 2 years. The price of propane is a little cheaper during the summer months in Wisconsin, but the "summer rate" has been discontinued many years ago. I had the 1500 sqft house built in 1991, with double the code requirements for insulation.

Edit: Having dry SEASONED wood (2 years), increases the BTU output ~40 percent.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: adding zest after fermentation
« on: January 24, 2014, 12:13:06 PM »
A vodka tincture is not not necessary. I add fruit and spices to many ales and most all brett beers and do not sanitize any of it. I have never needed the extra extraction vodka would provide. I learned the zest thing from my wife. She has been using a micro plane to zest fruit and add it to 2 quarts of water in a pitcher. It's a great flavored drink. I micro plane the zest, Starsan my hands and a fine mesh bag, secure zest inside bag and through it in at kegging. A little zest and an IPA or APA is mighty tasty IMO. Oh, a micro plane eliminates the pith, you do not want that in anything.

The Pub / Re: Aussies celebrate the "No Pants Subway Ride"
« on: January 12, 2014, 11:02:26 AM »
I ran across this today; "Aussies celebrate the No Pants Subway Ride". I
thought I was onto something brewing no pants.

is this really gandelf or is this weaze masquerading as gandelf?

What is a weaze? I have had gandelf since the early nineties; Gandalf was already taken
of course. I introduced Tolkien to my two kids and we were reading it; memory lane.

As for brewing with no pants; take a look see at the Brewing Network.

Thanks, that is what I'm looking for. I made a brass fitting for my line cleaner. I wanted a ss fitting for my torpedo (whole house filter). I use a march pump to clean my kegs and recirculate the wort through the torpedo.
