How long before damp-rid typically needs to be changed out if you have your controller set to about 64F? (Not that a couple degrees is going to make any difference...)

;D
Well I do like Cross Dressing Amateurs, ahem, I mean Black IPAs.

Depending on my negotiating skills with SWMBO I hope to do an Irish Red and an American Wheat.  At a minimum, I have 4 kegs that need to be cleaned.

What is SWMBO?
An idiot acronym for one's wife. 
Is there anything you like, besides disliking things?
Nothing, absolutely nothing.  It's a sad life, I know.

I'll make sure and run any acronyms by you for your approval in the future.  I was unaware you were so easily offended.   ::)

Good day.

That particular acronym grinds my gears.

Think I'm gonna do up a double IPA.  Plan to bottle this one, been a while since I've done that.  Prolly should refresh my skills in that area since I want to do more bottling so I can brew more.

I was eating lunch on the 20th of February with my 6-year-old granddaughter and I asked her, "What day is tomorrow?"

She said "It's President's Day!"
She is a smart kid. So, I asked "What does President's Day mean?" I was waiting for something about Washington or Lincoln etc.

She replied, "President's Day is when President Obama steps out of the White House, and if he sees his shadow we have one more year of unemployment."

You know, it hurts when hot coffee spurts out your nose...  :o

I say, I say, you're like a school boy on a Saturday.  NO CLASS. 

Zing!

I like wine once in a while, but also don't care about the "subtle nuances"...

Yeah it hurts and you get super light headed.  I sometimes forget about it and take a breath and very quickly remember...

You could still go all grain and do 3 gallon batches which will still allow you to boil on your stove top.  Perhaps a cooler mash tun would be all you need to get your 3 gallon all grain batches going. 
I think this would get my vote.  3 gallon batches is the way I do it and I love it.  Brew inside, brew more often, and more variety, less heavy lifting, etc.  It's great.
Other than that, fermentation temperature control is highly recommended, obviously.  A condo probably won't have room for a chest freezer.  You could probably build some kind of fermentation chamber.  Otherwise, a chiller is awesome to have, those can be easy to build I think.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: how much S 05

You will have plenty of yeast slurry from this beer that you can wash, put up, and use for several more beers.
Not recommended for such a high gravity beer, the yeast will be stressed.

1332
Wow, that is insane.  The person who recommended that must not have ever actually tried it, huh?

The bathroom doors where I work now have little toe deals to open the door with your foot.  It's pretty slick.  Before we got those we had trash cans by the door for the towel users, and actually those trash cans are still there I think.

But we also have touchless soap dispensers (which doesn't make sense to me since you'll be washing your hands AFTER you touch it, makes no difference) touchless faucets, and automatic flush toilets.

And the pirating music bit in that link makes good points.  I don't appreciate it when anyone pirates music by downloading it online for free, BUT I also get burned CD's from friends...that's another form of pirating, is it not?  That's been happening since the ability to burn CD's has been around.  The demand just needs to be addressed.  But I don't know how...

I think I'll be brewing a pale on Sunday since I didn't brew last weekend like I'd planned.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Why I brew

I'm way over critical of my beer, also.  I don't feel like I brew good beer often enough, at least not beer as good as I expect.  But every once in a while I surprise myself and brew something awesome, and that keeps me brewing.  I'm trying to get a list of recipes down that I know I can expect to be like that.  I've got 3 or 4 now.  I enjoy when other people tell me a beer I brewed is really good, it doesn't seem to happen often enough.  I brew for myself mostly, though.  It's probably the best hobby I've picked up to date.
