People in Chicago have no excuse.  The discount at brew & grow and the Goose brewpub pay for the membership REAL quick.

So I'm a Physicist rather than a Chemist and don't know these things, but pH is the concentration of hydrogen ions in solution, and shouldn't that stay the same as temp increases?  Or does it respond inhomogeneously to temperature increase and effectively affect the concentration when heated?

It's awesome, and the 21 day trial might last you until version 2.0 comes out...

This makes a great case for the concept of using oak chips, cubes, or strips rather than a barrel. Same concept as barrel aging but with a less risky and more controllable result.

and in far less time!

Did this issue catch anyone else off guard?  I could have sworn I had another month to go before it showed up.

you know, sometimes you just have to ignore laws.

hmm, me no good with filesharing websites.  Didn't know RS had a 10 download cap.  Here it is on mediafire.

My copy showed up today.  Took a little bit to unstick the glue from the envelope that got stuck to the top.

yours too?  I had to use 3M adhesive remover to get the crap off...  hairdryer didn't help at all.

as in Victory malt?  How is it?  I've been tempted to use it for the name alone, but haven't...

Ice is really enough water, don't you think?

it's really more of a pick one kind of thing.  Either it's winter, and my bourbon is cold and I just add water, or sit summer, my bourbon is hot, and it needs ice.

Just got my copy in the mail.  I'll try reading it once I remove all the damn glue that's on the top from the mailing envelope...

you should be able to just wait and click the free download link.

no prob, thanks to the university I work at.  Let me know if there are any other beer related things on any journal and I'll pull them.

I'll have my plate of fat over here and my whiskey over there

Glass, ice, and water are the only things my bourbon will ever see.
