The Pub / Re: Favorite movies
« on: August 27, 2011, 07:28:58 AM »
I invested in a really nice home theater system so I wouldn't have to sit in a room full of annoying people. I can drink all the beer I want while watching, and pause when I go to the bathroom.

Some of my favorite movies are;
Independence Day for sci fi
The Expendables for action
Blast from the Past for Comedy

I really like MOST of the super hero movies. Particularly the first Iron Man.
The last Superman movie sucked

For classics I like the 1953 version of War of the Worlds. Independence day was really just a modernized version of that. And very well done. The Tom Cruise version absolutely sucked

I do like the Jurassic Park movies

Mostly I like movies that really light up my big plasma tv and challenge my surround system  ;D

All Grain Brewing / Re: So, how long to do a 5 gallon all-grain batch?

Set up to cleanup takes me 7 hours every single time. And I really don't see what I can cut to make it any faster.

I brew like I cook. Follow a recipe exactly the first time. Then start tweaking to my taste after that. Until I make the first batch I have no clue what I may or may not like about it.

Yeast doesn't always go berserk. I often get long slow fermentations with S 05. Your beer is probably doing fine.

I have been amazed at the results I get from white vinager.

On that note, is there any problem with fermenting 2.5 gallons in a 6.5 gallon Ale Pail?

The Pub / Re: Debt downgrade, my car loses value?!
« on: August 11, 2011, 07:12:30 AM »
This is why I hate borrowing money for a vehicle. The vehicle depreciates and you lose money on interest. It is double jeopardy. If I can afford $300 a month for a car payment I can afford to put $300 a month in the bank instead and pay cash for a car later. Also I like to buy my vehicles 5 years old. That way they have already lost half their value and shouldn't depreciate as fast. I don't understand what happened with the 04 that belongs to the original poster.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Bottle bombs

Turbinato sugar does not dissolve very well. That's why I hate it when it is the only sugar offered in coffee shops. Even in hot coffee it has to be stirred a long time to get it to dissolve, and even then, the bottom of the cup is always way too sweet after not tasting very much of it at the beginning. Your bottle bombs are probably from the bottom of your bottling bucket. Most of your beers will probably be flat.

Thanks guys, I knew it was US.  I'm not worried about a limit and I fully intend to take it out of my house.  I tried googling it for Canada before when the 100 gallon thing was first mentioned and couldn't find anything.  I'm gonna assume I can do 100L which translates to about 1000 gallons.  By the way, my math is terrible...

Maybe this will give you a place to start.

From what I can see googling it they can poses no more than 50 gallons and it is illegal to take it out of their homes. But I didn't see an annual limit.

I seriously doubt you will ever have a revenuer knock on your door and ask to see your brewing log. But you never know.

1 adult in a household can brew 100 gallons. More than one adult in the household and you can brew a max of 200 gallons.

I try not to keep track of the total gallonage.  That way, if I'm ever subpoenaed I won't be able to rat myself out.

Ah...the ol plausible deniability trick. Very impressive.

Beer Recipes / Re: Wheat, Octoberfest, Ale?

Next question is should I mash at a high or low temp. I like a good malty flavor so I am thinking around 155?

How would Safbrew WB06 be for this beer? And would I have to do a starter with WP 380?
