Kegging and Bottling / Re: Sanitizing tap
« on: May 28, 2015, 04:45:46 AM »
I just keep a squirt bottle of Star San and hit the tap after pouring. It drains out into the drip tray and air dries clean.

Do this and there'll be no issues.

Ah whatsis name still has his dangly bits. Hasn't made the transition for whatever reason. Still he looks like a post-menopausal woman IMO.

It's obviously a Mihrab, which in turn is influenced/inspired by the vagina.

I hate to bring the bad news - it won't be the last brewing mistake you'll ever make, but it's pretty likely the last time you'll ever do THAT   :)

Like my mom has always said, "Bet you won't do THAT again!". :)

Most of the time she's right. ;)

Yep  ;D   My Mom, too.

Mom was pretty smart. She tried to raise me better, but her pleading I denied.

Reviews are like the proverbial... Well anyway you gotta look hard and long at anything interesting with a review these days. I'm willing to bet that the bulk of them are canned, regurgitated or outright fictitious.

Then you have to be the final arbiter regardless.

One day I will step up into your high dollar bourbons. Still doing well and appreciating the more pedestrian and reasonably priced whiskies that I can afford. I'm even branching out into Scotch but Bourbon is a better drinker IMO.

And I hope the filter is for the water...

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Fairbanks at Last!
« on: May 06, 2015, 05:49:09 AM »
My sister lives in Fairbanks. Not a brewer tho. I was up there for Thanksgiving and tried some of the local beers and Silver Gulch in particular.

Didn't seem like anyone was shy about drinking. In fact looks to me like a "drinking town" with reasonable prices. I really enjoyed the Blue Loon- got drunk, saw Guardians of the Galaxy one night and a comic the next evening.

What does this have with your original post? Nothing. But Fairbanks is pretty cool.

Might be that you'll need to find some more like minded and start a new club that meets more often.

Equipment and Software / Re: A smart-device for brewing
« on: May 05, 2015, 05:40:52 PM »
If the device (system?) measures throughout the entire process there will be probes inserted. Repeatedly. This is scary for homebrewers.

The above will have to be explained further if you want to proceed.

I'm interested in the wifi data logging but want temp control also. Price point is acceptable, but what you're offering is quite limited. PID temp controllers offer more.

+1 to that brother! I've paid a premium for controllers etc but if it keeps the LHBS alive it's a small fee for convenience.

Replaceable probes are important because they (the probes) supposedly only last a couple years even if maintained correctly.

Yesterday I pulled my Hannah Champ out. Probe was bone dry and gunked up- I hadn't used it in three years. Cleaned it up and soaked in pure water for a couple hours. It then read all over the place in pure water or vinegar. I ordered a $13 cheapo meter off Amazon and a pH drop kit for backup.

But, after reading on the web and Hannah's faqs I decided to try and pull some of the electrode out with tweezers. Figured what the hell it's broke already. As I pulled a couple mm of the electrode out of the "replenishable junction" a tiny rubber stopper holding it was dislodged. No problem it was gently replaced and 1-2mm of new electrode was exposed.

Dropped the meter into the two solutions and they were both spot-on with their readings.

I'm sure it does. Looks great!

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Keg Coming....Now What?
« on: April 27, 2015, 01:47:56 PM »
+1 I agree on the 20#'er. Then one can fill their 5# tanks from it! ;D

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Keg Coming....Now What?
« on: April 26, 2015, 10:34:30 AM »
I've never swapped a tank. Any place I've been will fill it on the spot, usually. I won't leave the tank or exchange.

All Things Food / Re: Growing food - The Garden Thread
« on: April 26, 2015, 09:10:58 AM »

This begs the question: When has the sentence " I wish this wasn't wrapped in prociuotto" ever been uttered?
By a vegetarian
True. But they wish they could have it.

If no-one was looking I bet they'd eat it.

Equipment and Software / Re: Ball Valve Cleaning
« on: April 25, 2015, 04:12:43 AM »

IMO this is the one piece of equipment that doesn't require typical homebrewer obsessiveness. A thorough rinsing to free the cooler of grain debri and stickiness is all that is needed. A brush up the valve if it suits you.

Dry open, preferably in the sun and it won't get smelly.
