Equipment and Software / Re: New Pump - Need power supply help
« on: December 03, 2010, 11:08:44 AM »
I don't think your pump will be suitable for brewing. It needs to be food grade and able to tolerate high temps (boiling). A March 809 pump will run you about $130 new and will run on 110v.

If your current pump has been exposed to chemicals you really don't want to risk your health or beer- in which order I can't say... ;D

If you want to go weldless these are good examples:

KettleValve™ Ball Valve (1/2")

S/S Kettle Valve Kit


I have the first one and very pleased with it.

Usually it is humid and hot as f@#k here. I'm grateful it has cooled down. My AC doesn't kick on and I can wear long-sleeves.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Bottling issues again
« on: December 03, 2010, 12:00:52 AM »
I think his question is regarding the fact that some bottles are good, and some are over carbonated, IOW the carbonation is inconsistent. So he is wondering whether "the food" is evenly distributed throughout the beer prior to bottling and how to improve on that without aerating the beer.

This sounds more like it. When bottling, I like to weigh then dissolve the sugar in water in a pyrex cup- ie bring to boiling. Then add to bottling bucket after a quart or so has filled it. This helps insure even mixing of the sugar solution. No problems.

A few people were talking about it at work. Arsenic as a building block of life...? Similar in size and just below phosphorus.

To me it is an indication or further evidence that life is probably everywhere- wherever it can get a toe-hold so to speak. I'm not even surprised by this.

All Things Food / Re: Bread/Yeast question.

Looking at your pic and recipe. For more "fluff" use bread flour or add gluten, make sure it is nice and sticky and slash the top of the loaf before you put it in the oven.

I see classic "all purpose" crumb and rise in those pics.

I entered my teen years with the Wall and watching videos on Top of the Pops. Fabulous! And I love Dark Side of the Moon. It's sad hardly any PF gets played in my area anymore- even on the oldie rock stations. :(

I like Water's solo efforts particularly The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking.

The Pub / Re: Looking at Windows 7 phones

I really have to question microsoft's intelligence for not including copy\paste. It is a real pain in the ass looking up tracking numbers, transferring phone numbers, and other random stuff without it :-\ It seems minor but becomes really annoying as time drags on. Hopefully they can fix some of the problems with software updates.

That actually is a serious flaw IMO. Is copy-paste really absent or maybe just a matter of figuring out how to do it? Took me a few days with the iPhone- which in this particular aspect has been much better than Android.

Uggg. Sounds nasty. I think the stuff is for immediate consumption after it's made. More like a jail-house hooch.

Well to be honest I'd like to mess with the phone some just to see how it is. My xenophobic tendencies leave me with a distrust of anything integrated with sites such as Facebook.  But it is popular so why not have the features people want?  MS is just appealing to their potential customers. Bouef. 
I was really hoping to find someone who had either of the 2 specific devices I was considering. I'm not a huge fan of heresay.

Ask around in the sub forums at xda. I'm sure someone there can give you an honest review from a end user perspective.

I read it (mostly) as well. Haven't handled or seen a phone with it yet, but I like the big buttons. That would work well with my stubby fingers.

The detractor IMO is it's designed/aimed at social network users ie Facebook. Automatic deal killer. But the appeal is there for those that use that sort of nonsense.

The pro as I see it is that it is "a stand alone device" and one doesn't need a PC to fully use it like other devices (iPhone anyone?). This goes along way on my book.

I just don't see it being as flexible or configurable as an Android phone. Furthermore my trust of using anything Microsoft was shot long ago. I figure windows 7 will show it's instability and insecurity as time progresses.

Well, didn't some recipes call for a Cock (male chicken) to be added to the boil? Talk about umami...

All Things Food / Re: BBQ Style
« on: November 30, 2010, 11:46:13 AM »
I clean my grill pretty good of the debris and grease with a wire brush or wad of paper. Then it gets a good spraying.

This gets done every time. I connected the dots years ago when I would get the sh!ts from a dirty gunked up grill. The heat of the fire isn't enough to tackle the whole job especially when using sugary BBQ sauces.

My understanding is "sand" in the water pan is better than water.

i haven't tried it yet, but what about a "burn out"?  would that work as well?

Envisioning.... Maybe. Probably. Then give the grill a good going over with a brush and wipe. All I know is since adopting a clean grill procedure any "incidents" have dropped to zero.
