Dean you raise a good point. Jeff may have "issues" that stretch and impact him for a great deal longer than one would assume. He could end up with permanent brain and central nervous system damage. Sounds negative but a pragmatic concern. His wife/family might be a bit iffy on him drinking anything if he comes home already impaired. He could also have a personality change. Brewing might not interest him anymore.

And how about Dean? How are you doing? Recovering well?

The reusable nylon hop bags are great for adding hops to the boil. I find I can even add hops to a bag but it is hot!. The real pain is cleaning them. :-\ Beer.

What's wrong with the wedge valves? I have kegs with both kinds, and am happy with either one.

Me too. And the advantage to the wedge is that you can leave it open. Beer.

How many kegs are floating around? Millions?

Or has many of them ended up at the recyclers...?

Personally, I can't stand bag in a box soda. Never tastes right to me.

My mother used to make that crumbly bread. I don't think she intended it to come out that way but it always did. Taste was great but made for terrible sandwiches. Fall apart in your hands. Toasted up fantastically and was hearty with breakfast- dunking in egg etc...

I use food processor too. My eye is on a stand mixer.

It's been easy/popular to bash the French, but we as a nation have a long association with them. Quite possibly we would have failed in our revolution without their support. And remember- they gave us our beloved Statue Of Liberty as a gift to commemorate that friendship.

Great post Phil! Not too long. Actually very concise. Thanks.

The only two uses for ketchup as a condiment is on fries (mayo just as good) and on my corn-dog- which must have mustard as well.

Sometimes a squirt gets added when cooking beans for giggles.

I have also used it in a pizza sauce BTW. Interesting. Pureed caramelized red onion and a healthy squirt of ketchup! Was pretty darn good.

I like panzanella which is a salad made out of stale or left-over bread. Wonderful and versatile.

As a big bean eater lots of things find their way into the pot as flavoring. Also, fillings for omelets and fritatas. Made into topping for pasta or noodle soups. Let your imagination run...

I'm pretty pleased with myself because very little is wasted.

You use a dry rub on the baby? How long in the smoker? ;)

I've had the Malheur 10 and the Kwak. Both good/great though I prefer the Malheur 8.

Looks like you had fun. Limited by the time window I think Delirium Cafe is something people will remember. The Liefmans looks interesting.

I've ordered from them. Good service and prompt delivery. YMMV.

To answer your question I think you can swap the relief valves.

Got a decent deal on kegs but looks like they'll be selling only parts soon:



We have been liquidating Pepsi's used equipment since 1996.
In some years we liquidated over 60,000 kegs per year.
On 9/29/2009 we picked up the LAST 800 kegs in the Pepsi Corporate system in the Western U.S.
Pepsi (PBG) has no more kegs on the west coast.

UPDATE 10-2010:
An independent Pepsi Franchise plant will be making a keg release w/in 45 days.
There will be only 2,400 kegs released.
We will post kegs available when they are in transit to us.

There will be no more discounts on multiple kegs and no wholesale sales due to the
EXTREME SCARCITY of used kegs.

I'll spill the beans and say that after Randy, Jamil and Chris White will be taking yeast questions, and Stan Heironymous has agreed to do 2 separate on Belgians and one on wheat beers.  So start thinking of those questions!

It keeps getting better!

Wonderful! I haven't read it all yet- will save that for work...

Thanks guy's for the hard work! This alone makes the membership worthwhile.

I'm too lazy to Google it, but, what are the hop varieties used?

Bottle says "...a carefully selected blend of hops from top German, English and American growing regions..."

I'm finding that it goes very well with cheese.  :)
