The Pub / Re: Duty Calls

I didn't get it right away.  Thought, "why would she want the paint she could sniff it?"  Then my thought was confirmed in the writing below the comic.  I'm in the same boat as Tom, not offended, but not really laughing either...

If we all always said what we thought, we'd sure not get along very well in this world.  And look, we already don't get along very well.  There's no sense of live and let live in the world; there's no love, only hate and judgment.  There's a ton of things I don't agree with that people believe, but I ain't gonna persecute them for it unless they ask for it.

I'm dreading the day my kitty cat dies, also.  His name is Roots (after the Sepultura album not the TV series with La Varr Burton), he's about 9 years old.  Had him since he was 2; got him at the animal shelter.  I call him mowers, which sounds like mauers, because he meows a lot at times.  At 9, he's still pretty active.  Runs around, jumps up on stuff, has a lot of energy.  So I hope he's got another 8 years or so in him.

All Grain Brewing / Re: To stir or not to stir
« on: July 12, 2011, 01:29:22 PM »
I've tried both stirring and not stirring.  The only thing stirring did was let heat escape.
This was my first thought.  It's just gonna make your mash temp fall even faster.  I stir at dough-in and when I sparge.

Nice.  I think you're required to wear medieval clothing while you haul that around.

You have to admit, even though it's Bud, it's a really cool idea.

That just what "they" want you to think, man...

Good, now both y'all (ccarson and phil) shut up!  Don't get all "baby on board".  You're still assuming the risks of the road by driving with your child in the car just like everyone else is.  I hate that high horse that people should treat you extra special because you have a child in the car.  NO!  Driving is a dangerous activity.  Accept it!  40,000 people die in car accidents a year, alone, in the US.  And ccarslon...come on dude, chill the f*ck out, man.  Not everyone is uber conservative and believes the earth is 6,000 years old.  Come to reality, dude.  And......lock.

I've done this also, there's nothing to worry about.  But like hokerer said, it's harder to clean that crap out of there the longer it sits.  I don't usually get a lot of blow off, if any, but I have before, so I put the blow off on there just in case.  Leaving it hooked up will do you no harm.

That trub isn't going to adversely affect your beer.  I try to keep any of it out that I can, but if some or all gets in there, I don't worry about it.

Ah, that's cool.  Perhaps I should only brew lagers in the winter and spring months when the water coming out of the tap is sure to be colder.  Otherwise, I can't do that in the summer as I'm pretty sure the water doesn't get that cold.

Cool.  What was your method for chilling to pitching temp?

Congrats, Sean.  You're livin' the dream, brother.

Damn, I am jealous.  I'm planning to purchase a chest freezer and Johnson controller this fall as well to start with fermentation temperature control.  But free for the freezer!  That's insane.  I wish I could be so lucky...

It actually took me a few weeks of very intense searching, to find this one.
I called & emailed so many, I started to seriously confuse myself as to which ones were which.
I was just about to give up & buy one from Menard's, when I saw the ad for this one.
Persistence pays off.

Funnily enough, my stepdad told me that a friend of his has two 5 cf chest freezers he's trying to get rid of, both in good shape and free.  I was planning to downsize my batches to 3 gallon batches and ferment in 5 gallon kegs anyway, so this sounds like I scored a deal also.

It's funny people talk about modern fermentation temperatures with saisons...this style was originally to be fermented WARM, like in the 80's.
