Kegging and Bottling / Re: Kegerators--any suggestions?

Dang dude, you paid $1500 for yours (well it probably wasn't $1500 4 years ago...)?  Yeesh, that's pricey.  Looks like an amazing kegerator though.

The only one of these I've worked with (and love) is blackprinz malt.  It's pretty awesome.  I'd say it'd like debittered black, but smoother.  I use it for all my stouts, porters, black IPAs, etc.

Beer Recipes / Re: Low Alcohol Beer Ideas?

Hmmmm I've sort of been pondering this idea lately too.  You could use more specialty grains, roasted grains, and crystal malts and lower the base malt percentage.  I'm not sure how else you'll make good low alcohol beer.  Diluted I think would not be good, and boiling off some of the alcohol also I think wouldn't be good...don't know.

Left Hand brewing figured out how to bottle their nitro Milk Stout without using a widget...couldn't tell you how they did it though.

Beer Recipes / Re: Light Ale Recipe

Four years ago I used minute rice in a cream ale and it was nice.  It was 2 lbs of flaked corn, 1 lb of the rice and 3/4 lb. of orange blossom honey with some 2-row and Pils malt.  Mashed at 152oF and used WLP029 at 66oF.  It was very hot that summer and this was perfect for the hot weather.  If I used WLP007, I'd ferment as cool as I could - around 62oF-63oF.


That sounds really good.  Sounds like it'd be a good recipe to brew to get a new generation of yeast going plus a good light drinker for hot days.

Why didn't the CL mill work out?

Does one need a certain amount of powered drill to run a Barley Crusher?  I have a drill, never used it for my mill, but not sure it's powerful enough. 
This is the one I have: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002TXNX0/ref=oh_details_o05_s00_i00

Damn!!! http://iowacity.craigslist.org/app/2968777452.html

It's too bad I'm not in the market to build or buy a new kegerator...remember when I was saying these were hard to find?

Oh I know.  I've always been the one people picked on.  I just never quite fit in anywhere.  Sorry to have ruined the original poster's thread, he had good intentions.

Just make sure you check the wind before relieving yourself.  You still have to climb down.   ;)

Paul

They should climb with parachutes so they can jump off when they are done.
I was thinking they should wear parachutes in case they fall.  Are parachutes really that heavy?  One slip up and you could go down...man, I had a hard time watching this video.

For the longest time I thought SWMBO stood for Single While Man Brews Outdoors.

It's important to remember that you are on the same team though. I would not like to live in an adversarial marriage.

I really hate that acronym, I just do.  So I usually have to say something whenever someone uses it.

But on the topic of people living in adversarial marriages.  It seems too many guys I hear on these forums talk about how they hate taking up the kitchen for so long, their wives hate when they brew, hate the smell, blah blah blah.  Wow, sucks to have a wife that is so conditional.  Makes me sad.  And taking up the kitchen for 4-5 hours?  Can these people's wives stand to be out of the kitchen for that long?  I don't get it...

It's like when I hear guys say when they try to change their facial hair that their wives HATE it and make them shave it off.  Makes me sad.  Just imagine if you told your wife you hated her new haircut, how would she feel?  Not good right?  These wives just don't seem to think that through, it's a 2 way street.  Makes me think these guys married the wrong women.

You're making a Cross Dressing Amateur?  tsk tsk tsk, be careful, they'll get ya.
