Equipment and Software / Re: Does wort evaporate slower than water?
« on: December 01, 2013, 12:51:47 PM »
You have to assume that the water part of wert will evaporate at the same rate as water once it is heated to over 100C.

I'm brewing a kolsch this weekend.  Thankfully it looks like the temps are going to warm up a bit from the below-freezing stuff we've had the past couple days.

TDS,

Hoping my temps stay below 90F so my brew day is not a stinker.

Brewing a Belgian Saison on Sunday using the dry Belle Saison yeast I got at registration at NHC Philly.

Brooklyn is pretty big, but do try Barcade, Mugs Alehouse, and for sours and Belgians Spuytin Duyvel is a must.

I went to Barcade when I was in NYC in July.  The beer list was great but the premises looks very ordinary.  We actually thought it had closed down but lucky for me Mrs G wanted a closer look.  Don't be put off by the exterior.

Gaz,

I'll be looking to sample your saison and be super critical of that chin hair that you sport.

Hey guys!

Time to spill the beans...

The keynote speaker is...*drum roll*...Tom Peters!

Cheers,
Duncan

edit: Here is a link to the announcement online

I was available and heading to Philly for the conference and thought I would get the call.  Seems like my days sitting by the phone were wasted, but Tomo sounds like he would have something to offer.

Equipment and Software / Re: Hose material

One problem I have with silicone tubing is its flexibility.  When hot, it may be too flexible for use as a pump

This is my biggest complaint - it can kink / contract near the barb when its on the suction side of the pump. PITA, but since I bought $40 worth of tubing, I'll use it until it needs replaced...

I have never had this problem.  I use a pump from the boil to the plate chiller too.  It is described as heavy wall tubing on the seller's website.  Maybe that is the difference?

I've purchased 2 types of silicone hose both with 1/2" ID but one is heavy duty with a thicker wall that doesn't pinch when used as a pump pick-up.

Well, dang it, I didn't register in time so I'll miss the fun. 

Betcha if you pay attention you can find a ticket over there in the classifieds!

As for me, I'll be there and for the first time in a long while, I won't be doing a damn thing, except failing at being pretty.

If you see me, feel free to accost me. I don't mind!

Accost I shall, but my understanding of that term may require personal protection of the rubber kind, just sayin'

I'll be there and will be doing a pouring shift for the Brewing Network on club night.  There are 4 of us from the Seacoast Homebrew Club going, but just as attendees...no organized club event.

This will be my first and I too have put my name down to pour for the BN. I'll be the guy with the beer in his hand so don't be a stranger.

The Pub / Re: Best tablet not made by Apple
« on: April 27, 2013, 09:03:52 PM »
I bought Mrs G an iPad last year because she liked her iPhone.  I dislike Apple stuff (just because) so I decided to buy myself a Samsung Glaxy Note 10.1 and I love it.  The Note also comes with a stick thingy that you can do stuff with but I'm yet to work that part out.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: I tried the shaking method
« on: March 31, 2013, 07:58:26 PM »
I always shake mine to carb them.  I do it all in one go and it only takes me a few mins to complete.  No real accurate volume of CO2 is put in but it works for me.

I just adopted the temp BeerSmith threw at me which is 75.6C (168F) but may have to try it at higher temps.
