I have many options. WB-06, Nottingham, WLP002 and WLP029. Amber and Dark DME. Grain and specialty grain. Also have a metric buttload of various hops in the freezer.

I want to do a nice quick Bitter with Magnum & Fuggles.

As I understand it "bad for business" is an anathema to the Dutch psyche. Which this certainly will be to some extent.

Watching this with amusement.

Equipment and Software / Re: Soda Stream to carbonate beer???

I do it in a PET bottle with a carbonator cap.

Me too. I have two caps. It's a part of my quality control process.

Around here something like a Bobcat unsecured with the keys in it would be gone in a matter of hours.

At least now we know why Rudolph's nose is red... ::)

No record but about 5 years ago the intake manifold on my Grand Marquis blew in the middle of nowhere and I didn't realize it until I was a couple miles out after passing through Big Lake (Tx). Ding Ding Ding... Temp gauge maxed.

Whipped her around and just made it back to the little town. It was a Saturday afternoon but I still managed to find a mechanic. We put the vehicle on a trailer and for $100 he hauled me the 120 miles back to my folks place.

The part was $1500. >:(

Now we just need some rye bread, sauerkraut and mustard. Or Russian dressing.

Isn't a metric buttload 5.33 regular buttloads?

I use a plastic tote from Walmart that costs $10. IIRC it's the 30 gallon. Holds two 7.9 gallon fermenters.

and with a few frozen plastic bottles it stays nice and cool.

Denny, I NEVER apoligize, I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.

Well you just did actually.  ;D

That movie is in my top 5. "Daddy's gonna kill Ralphie!"   
  And Denny, I have to apologize. I told the joke three times today, ang got big laughs each time. I takes a big man to tell a joke that bad, but a bigger man to admit when a terrible joke isn't so terrible. So, I must be the biggest, joke telling man of them all. I'm gonna go have another beer now.

The Pub / Re: What are you Thankful at the end of this year?

To be Thankful for...

I'm also glad for Keith and Drew even though we've never met. The same for Jeff's progressing recovery. Mainly I'm thankful for my parents still being alive- and I don't get to see them as much as I want. Then for having a good stable job that has insulated me from the economic woes so many of our fellow Americans have suffered. And peace at the workplace- no one's fighting on my shift. That could change but I hope that just wasn't a jinx.

I'm really pleased that it can be honestly said that I have material wants but no needs. Except a rear view mirror for my VW. Thieves got that. Needs replacing. I also learned a fair bit about myself this year- hopefully not too damage was done in the process! ;)

I just did a side by side comparison. Color and clarity are the same (20 SRM) as well as pH= 4.3. I measured the pH at serving temp and will measure it again at room temp when I get home later tonight.

Edit: The pH remained 4.3 at room temps.
