with a name like passedpawn I am guessing you are a chess player.

I bought a nice strainer for pouring wort into my fermenter from the kettle. Now I don't have to use hop sacks anymore. Also bought an RV hose so I don't have to run in and out of the house with a pitcher to fill my water kettle.

Is the mesh fine enough to filter pellet hops, and if so would you know what size mesh or what kind it is?  Gracias.

Yes it is. And I don't know what size the mesh is. This is my strainer

The description says single mesh but it looks double mesh to me.

I appear to have found the wrong thread.

This is Ralph, my beer guard dog, he is an essential asset for my trips to the bathroom when enjoying home brew.

In the mean time just drink it before you leave. It is much more ergonomic to carry your beer in your stomach.

I tried this beer and it tasted like an Octoberfest. So I bought a 6er of Sam Adams Octoberfest and tasted them side by side. I honestly cannot taste a difference. Color is identical but mine is a bit cloudy. Mine pours with a better head.

I work out with weights regularly, I don't know my max right now but it is probably around 265, maybe a little more depending on the spot. ;) I used to be able to max over 300 but I doubt I could get that now. I work out with 185-245 (increasing the weight during sets with a warm up of 135). BTW: I weight about 175 and am about 5'7". Not a big guy.

I am 5'6. And I do know how running does not mix with squats. Both take a toll on the lower back. I bicycled for cardio.

The photos in my post were taken at the WPA World Championships at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville TN. It was May 5-7 I think of 2005.

In 2005 I did 300 pounds in the 148 pound division.



I was 49 at the time. Now I just use light weights to keep my muscle toned. I suppose now I could probably do 200 to 220. I currently weigh 142.

Truthfully, in my opinion the true tests of strength are the Squat



I hit 400 in this picture.

And the Deadlift



My best was a triple bodyweight 445.

Don't they have some kind of package deal for buying tickets to all of the sessions at once this year?

Given there is no sense of taste without the sense of smell, is it even possible to add aroma without adding flavor?
