Equipment and Software / Hydrometer question
« on: April 07, 2013, 01:32:33 PM »
Can hydrometers suddenly and without warning go wayyyy out of calibration. Today is the second time in a row I was expecting my beer to hit around 10.50 and it hit 1.066 instead. I can't believe my efficiency suddenly took that big of a jump.

The Pub / Fantastic Amazon Sale
« on: April 04, 2013, 08:03:34 AM »
Amazon.com has a one day only sale. "Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection (Star Trek I, II, III, IV, V, VI + The Captain's Summit Bonus Disc) [Blu-ray]" for $34.99. I think the DVD collection was $22. I have these movies in DVD but have wanted to upgrade to blu-ray for some time I just didn't want to spend $85 to do it. At this price they are less than $6 per movie for blu-ray.

Kegging and Bottling / I tried the shaking method
« on: March 31, 2013, 07:46:25 PM »
I blew my last keg Thursday night. So I stuck my next one in. Friday morning I put 30lbs on it. I stopped and shook it every time I went downstairs. Today after the last time I shook it I decided to vent it and see how far it had come. Don't ever do that right after you shake it. Anyway I wiped the beer off of me and pulled a draw. It was perfectly carbed and delicious. The shaking method works.

Yeast and Fermentation / BRY-97 First Impression
« on: March 24, 2013, 11:16:17 AM »
I used BRY-97 on my second batch of White Wheat Wonder. I must say I am impressed. I did not rehydrate, I simply sprinkled it in. My beer went from 1.060 to 1.011 in 14 days. The sample I tasted from the fermenter was absolutely delicious. The cake was super easy to clean out of my bucket. It almost poured out. No more S 05 for me.

Ingredients / Columbus hops
« on: March 18, 2013, 03:43:07 PM »
I got an unbelievable deal on a pound of columbus hops through yakima valley hops a while back. I have never brewed with them so I don't know what they taste like. Would an IPA single hopped with these be a bad thing?

Once it is mixed 1 tablespoon to 1 gallon is it safe to get on your skin?
