Hey Denny, I left my DVR in Ohio. I can give ya a website, and some simple instructions, so you can download pretty much anything you ever wanted to watch. Fact is, I hardly ever watch a television broadcast at all anymore. The day after the show airs, I download it, and watch it at my leisure. Leftme know if you're interested.

sure, weaze, post the website & instructions..... inquiring minds want to know

Yeah. It isn't Hulu or something like that is it? ;)

I've never had one go past a month so I can't say for sure. Does that mean commercial beers like Paulaner Hefe-Weizen really are sub-par? I enjoy them.

No practical experience with that on my part guys. Good to know about flavor- which is what I've always suspected but was more thinking of clarity issues. But again I brew ales and don't care about bright lagers. ::)

I just picked up a 4pack and really really like it. I'd pick this over traditional Guinness. In fact I'd like to brew something similar also.

Expensive. But, the sourish roasty hoppy bitterness makes it all worth while.

I don't care if it all ends up in the fermenter, though the whole hops catch some of it. AFAIK people who like to brew super clear lagers want to leave out most or all the trub.

Well, Denny if you have an extra PC laying around you could install something like MythTV. All you would need to do is buy a tuner card and they're fairly cheap.

Denny, I think you might need something like Tivo

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.
