It's not even brown. When I poured there was a double take. Pale lager?

Way up...I just wish they'd settle on a reliable schedule.
First episode was on a Sunday...
They moved to Mondays...
Now, it looks like they're currently airing on Thursdays...

Hard to be a devoted viewer, when they keep changing.
That's been known to get shows cancelled, in the past.

How about satisfying a contract? You got 10 episodes to show and the first have had lukewarm reception. Burn'em off in various slots and move onto the next concept. The option isn't renewed. They want something like Pawn Stars and Man vs Food.

I'll dump a beer in a heartbeat and move on.

Now cap what are you going to do with 40 Mexican ales?

Commercial Beer Reviews / Dundee Honey Brown

I've been eying this for years. Bought some tonight. Label says "Extra Rich"  ??? Not much honey to it nor richness. Drinkable at 4.5%- think I could pound six of these and still find my way.

For some reason it has stuck in my head that a bottle of Infinium was $20. I hope it's $13!

After 3 years I still use a Cobra tap. This year I also went to just priming the keg. It's just a tool that suits me very well for the moment. Forcing carbonation like using agitation is also appropriate and so is passively connecting to a set pressure to achieve desired volumes.

I'd like to do a real setup with 4 taps.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Thin head

How the head performs is based on various factors. First you should look at how clean your glasses are- ie soap residue. I'm not a big fan of no-spot rinses either. If you must- then use vinegar in the washer.

A healthy pitch of yeast and fermentation appears to be a key component in head formation. Some advocate the addition of wheat malt to the recipe to improve head formation. YMMV.

And my experience is how many volumes a beer is carbonated and how it is poured also comes into play.

I've got various types of ball lock in varying conditions. I'll need to set all 16 out and see exactly what I have. Some are Pepsi co.  The ones I got cheap from the Chi company were in so-so condition. Stickers all over and some with beer inside! Dents and scratches. Failing parts.

The stickers are easy to remove if you use a heat-gun to warm them up a bit. Then they're easily peeled off. Barkeepers Friend will get them all nice and shiny and even new looking.

One might try cleaning the rubber with Armor All.

A while back I was seeing adverts for brand spanking new SS corny kegs from China. But they weren't cheap.

I want to start submitting to some competitions but more locally. Anyone know about comps in Texas?

Did you get natural gas or propane? If it's NG then no orifice.

^^^^^ This was my inkling. Beer was most likely consumed within days of fermentation- it's still pretty fizzy at that point. Otherwise it soured.
