The images have to me "hosted" somewhere. You won't be able to just upload them. However, they will display here via the above mentioned tags.

My experience is a little tamarind goes a long way.

I suspect frozen keg not line. If so it will need to thaw completely before you try to dispense otherwise you'll get concentrated beer first then something akin to lite beer later as it continues to thaw. Think bourbon! Anyway, it can take over 24 hours to completely thaw a keg at room temp. Don't try to do it in the fridge.

Sorry about the JOB. They're overrated anyway. And good source of betrayal as well.

This is a pilot build? Are you planning on something bigger?

Nice gift and vessel but I rule out almost all their advertised glasses as unstable or hard to clean. Which makes me wonder why many beer glasses are often designed in such a way as to be tall and top-heavy with narrow bases.

Maybe it originates as some sort of a drunkometer. ::)

I like the idea of straining the wort through the whole hops in a stocking. Does this catch much trub?

The best part about the stockings (Leggs) is that they are so cheap as to be disposable. Very quick and easy to clean. Just throw the sock away...

Off the top of my head don't cicadas have something like a 30 year larval cycle? That could be one old-ass insect...

Has it been stepped on? Cause it looks like a cicada head-wise but the body is indistinct.

When using whole-hops a coarse-mesh bag is indispensable as is a finer weave for pellet hops. 

I've done it all whichaways and settled on bags for my system.

Bought the 12" T-Fal skillet ($19- optimal technology) a couple weeks ago. Swore I'd never buy a nonstick but figured what the hay, I'd give one a try after reading on how to use and take care of one.

Manufacturer recommends lightly oiling before use, and it makes sense. They were never meant to be used without fats anyway AFAIK. Works like a charm for omelets, channa masala etc.

Tried the Cooks Illustrated "Easy Sandwich Bread" that takes less than 2 hours. The author states optimistically 90 minutes start to finish. My experience was 105 minutes from hydrating the flour and ending with a baked loaf cooling on a rack.

Substituted beer for the water and skipped the honey and butter.

Turned out pretty good. Very much like the premium store-bought sandwich bread that comes in the bag. But better.

Probably kicked off a little ferment when it was roused and transferred.

Or it may be an infection. Taste it.

Sounds like Reinhart's book is worth reading then. I'm going through 1-2 loaves a week by my own hand. Stale bread is perfect for french toast.
