The problem is you are going to only be drinking 3 gallons of beer.  ;)

Nailed it.
What if it's beer he doesn't like?

50F and sunny here in...wait for it...IOWA.  Suppose to be the same tomorrow.  Unbelievable winter we're having.  We haven't gotten a full inch of snow yet and I heard somewhere we usually already have had 10 inches by the end of December.  Been a while since we've had a winter like this.  Of course we'll probably get pounded in March and April with the wet heavy snow.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Kegging with priming

It does not create a different carbonation, CO2 is CO2.  It's just a different way of approaching it.  Say you don't have space in your keg fridge or another CO2 connection to carbonate a spare keg and you want to carbonate a beer before you hook it up to the tap, you can naturally carbonate and have it ready when you need it.  But you'll have a lot of sediment at the bottom in the first few pours, like when you carbonate in the bottle.  
You have to use less priming sugar than you would if you were bottling.  I think it's 1/2 a cup for a keg?

Yes, great song.  What's your point?!

This is great sh*t.  I listened to it when I was a kid in the early 90s while I played with my train set.

I went out, but New Year's, to me, is lame.  It's just another day.  And New Year's resolutions are stupid.  If you wanna do something, F*CKING DO IT NOW! Don't wait for January 1st, ya moron!
The only true NEW YEAR is your own birthday.  January 1st is just another day...

I just don't fit in...

I brewed a pale yesterday with all Horizon hops, about 10% light munich, and 6 or 7% C50-60.  I double batch sparged and boiled for 90 minutes this time to see if I'd get a jump in efficiency and I did.  Got 79% efficiency when I usually get around 71-74%, so that was nice.  I think I maybe start doing that more often.

If it's that cold out you shouldn't need to shower!  I shower less in the winter time because I sweat soooo much less.  And you're single right? 

Sucks it's so cold there because here in eastern Iowa it's fantastic.  Highs in the 30s and 40s all week, been such a mild winter.  Hope it stays this way for a change, even though I like winter.

All Grain Brewing / Re: 3 Gallon batch questions
« on: December 23, 2011, 04:31:16 PM »
its not so much that i wouldn't put 3 gal in 5 gal keg. it is the room of a 5 gal keg if i am only brewing 1-2.5 gallon batches.  i have nearly worked out a way of kegging in 1 gallon apple juice bottles and still like the tap systems i have seen people make for the 5l kegs.  my new thought though is using the 2 gallon/8liter hdpe spray tanks for chemicals.  still playing.
Just bottle it at that point dude.  3 gallon kegs are expensive, but I really want one.  Could put it on the hump in my serving chest freezer.

Well, hot dog.  That's quite a spiffy setup ya got there, Lennie.

Next week off. Hopefully 3 brews. AB clone, THA, an all Galaxy AIPA.
You're gonna like those Galaxy hops.  There's a brewery in Decorah, Iowa called Toppling Goliath that has an all Galaxy hopped IPA, it's deeeelicious.

How could you guys have already finished it? I just finished it...
