General Homebrew Discussion / Re: May seem like a dumb question

Thanks to the advice earlier in this thread I bought a food grade RV hose. Before using it in my beer I let it run 5 minutes, drew a glass from it and another identicle glass from my tap. Tasted them side by side and detected absolutely no difference between the 2.

I tasted my first beer made with all water from my RV hose. I didn't pick up any garden hose taste whatsoever. And it sure did save me some time on brew day. Thankyou for all your input.

IBU/GU ratio is 0.53 I still don't understand this ratio yet. I would love to know where cloying ends, balanced begins, balanced ends, slightly hoppy begins etc. For now I just take Brewtarget's word for it. IBUs are 27.1

I don't have any pilsner malt. And brew target says it will be balanced with this amount.

Beer Recipes / Rough draft of a recipe
« on: July 06, 2012, 09:50:10 PM »
I am formulating a recipe for an altbier. How does this look so far?

5lbs Munich 10L
3 lbs 2 row
.5 lb Caramunich II
.5 lb aromatic malt
2 oz black patent
1 oz of hops around 7.5 percent for bittering

I am thinking about eliminating a half a pound of 2 row and replacing it with half a pound of white wheat.

Thankyou. I absolutely love altbiers but have never brewed one. This is the first time I have found a recipe for one.

Is there any way to access the recipe of last week? I thought I saved it but didn't. It was an altbier.

I was just wanting to know if I was buying a good brand. As it turns out the one I bought is quite upgradable which is nice. It has RCA jacks so I can add an amplifier. So if I ever did want to turn it into a nice sound system the potential is there. Now that I have been using it for a while I am considering upgrading the speakers. I love the endless variety of music I have now.

My other car, an 02 Firebird has the 500 watt Monsoon sound system with 10 speakers. All factory. It sounds incredible. After driving that car I get back in my Buick and feel like my ears are plugged from swimming or something.

I was never looking for good audio. Just more choice than a radio alone affords.

A home system doesn't do me any good when spending 6 hours on the highway.

I left mine at factory setting. My efficiency is generally around 80% going by my BrewTarget software.

I have a 1999 Buick Lesabra Custom. Crutchfeild only listed 6 units that will fit it. I still think letting a professional take care of it is my best bet. They will know how to adapt any unit I choose to my car. I was just wondering about brand names these days.

He shot me an estimate of $225 for the unit I put the link up to. That included installation. From what I have been reading the factory speakers should work fine they will just distort sooner if I crank the thing up.

dbeechum These new stereos have removable face plates that make a good theft deterrent.

As far as wiring it in, ehow.com says on this particular vehicle I would have to take some of the dash apart. I would prefer to leave that to the pros. I won't let stock clerks at Best Buy mess with it either. I am going to take my car to an Auto audio shop.

I just got a good deal on an hellaciously well taken care of old Buick. Biggest downside to it is it has a cassette deck. I could almost live with that but the cassette player doesn't work. So I am looking at aftermarket systems. I want just a nice radio with a CD player and a USB port to play MP3s off of thumb drives.

The local auto audio dealer showed me this one
http://mobile.jvc.com/product.jsp?modelId=MODL029041&pathId=54&page=2

Back in my day JVC was an excellent name in stereo systems, right up there with Bose, but I have been out of the loop on stereo systems since the late 70s.

For what I want a 50 watt system would be fine. Does it even make a difference what I get for an entry level system like this?
