Yes, congrats Ryan.



I noticed the list of my posts but find it a bit awkward to use since it actually shows the complete posts when all I’m interested in is a list of threads that I posted in with the indication if that thread has received a new post. I use this to follow up on threads that I posted in. When I don’t have much time, looking at this list may is oftentimes all I do.


Hi Guys,

There are two links/urls that I’m trying to find on this forum:

- “my posts”, which lists all the threads that I posted in and
- “new posts”, which lists all the new posts since I last checked for new posts.

I found them very useful in other forums and miss them here. I found a link for “my posts” under my profile, but the formatting was such that it was difficult for me to tell if there have been new posts in a given thread.

I think we also need an admin forum, where we can post questions like this.


Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Extract and DMS
« on: November 04, 2009, 03:48:27 AM »
What I would be concerned with is the extend to which DMS-P or SMM is converted to DMS during the extract production. Once DMS is formed, it is quickly evaporated especially since extract production evaporates all or most of the water. The remaining DMS-P concentration is a function of initial concentration (determined by the malt that was used), temperature and time and while I'm not an extract manufacturer, if I were one my first goal would be to minimize the energy used to make the extract. Essentially this means that I would minimize the boiling that is necessary.

As a result I would expect that there is a need to boil extract to make sure the amount of DMS precursor in the wort at flame-out is sufficiently low that you won't get excessive DMS formation between then and cooling. The amount of boiling necessary should however be less than what you would need for a comparable AG batch.

So much for the theory. I have little practical experience with using extract.

It's always fun to be only 26 posts behind Denny ;)

I'm glad to see familiar names. Is this going to be a mass exodus from the NB forum?
