I've been toying with converting to SS fermenters instead of plastic. If there's a hole for a valve then it'll be easy for me. Guess I could always "drill" it out...

Check these babies out....

I take it that these have a "valve" at the bottom?

Equipment and Software / Re: kettle ball valve sanitization
« on: October 10, 2010, 10:28:06 AM »
Seems to me that it gets hot enough to sanitize, especially if it was clean to begin with. It's how I use mine and no infections have resulted.

Pimp My System / Re: Is it worth it.....?
« on: October 10, 2010, 10:25:35 AM »
Is this system worth $5000?? Comes with a 27gallon conical fermentor, a fridge that holds 9 kegs to ferment at cooler temps, and a ton of other stuff....

Actually the reserve is not met. He wants 8K for everything.

Looks like someone is giving up drinking. :'(

I think the hot smoked is called kippered salmon.
Around here it's called smoked salmon.  I'm pretty sure kippers are different, but I'm not sure how.

Try hot smoking Chilean sea bass. Wow.
:-\  Sorry, I might not look it but I'm one of those dirty smelly hippies who won't eat something like that because it's on the avoid list - things that are "overfished or caught or farmed in ways that harm other marine life or the environment" . . . there's plenty of sustainable choices.

Thanks for the list. Im not a hippie (mostly cause I hate the smell of pertuli or what ever it is called) but I do care about our oceans.

I will now avoid Chilean sea bass. I also noticed we get some other things on the avoid list that we will no longer get.

This list is interesting, Im just a little concerned that it is putting a band aid on a machine gun wound. We are fishing the crap out of every species and Im not sure there is any hope.

Ya'll should read the latest issue of National Geographic. It has extensive articles about this very subject.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: March Pumps not pumping
« on: October 09, 2010, 10:40:18 PM »
This is helping me alot also. I've had significant difficulty priming the pump when boiling. Then have to drop and let fill the return line all almost the way for it to start. My pump is about 20" below the bottom of the kettle and each hose is 6 foot. My suspicion is too much hose between the pump inlet and kettle at this height.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Porter and Munich
« on: October 09, 2010, 10:24:10 PM »
Well, despite the best laid plans, I managed to forget to inventory my grain accurately.  Looks like 3 lb Munich will be replaced by 1.25 lb Munich and 2.25 lb Vienna.  Oops.

Happens to the best of us (surely) don't let it stop you from brewing the beer. Might just end up being one of those "happy accidents".

Awesome! If I'm ever down in Bama a stop-in will have to happen! :D

Other Fermentables / Re: Cider with Spontanious Fermentation.

I would think so. Unfortunately I can only get the pasteurized cider here or spend a small fortune on apples.

Nice pun! :D

The Pub / Re: Jumping Jehoshaphat - I own a house!
« on: October 09, 2010, 12:53:17 AM »
Haha no I'm on my 0.19 of an acre. I'd hate to pay the taxes on a house valued at what Drew's property is appraised! :o  But he has a lovely looking/sounding house. And to live on the West Coast in LA? Awesome!

Ten years ago I would never thought I would own a home. So blessed now. Drew's gotta be excited (and nervous) with this major step. They say the first three houses are the hardest...

Commercial Beer Reviews / Great Divide's Hercules Double IPA
« on: October 09, 2010, 12:42:22 AM »
Why isn't this a Barleywine? It's 10% alcohol and hoppy as hell. And, it tastes like a regular strength IPA so oh so dangerous... Can't even taste the alcohol. Sweet, earthy and bitter with a bold spicy hop taste and nose. Pretty highly carbonated, so the mouth-feel isn't cloying but refreshing.

Has little white floaters that look like crumbs. To me, this usually is a sign of infection but the flavor is fine; I can't imagine a 10% & 84 IBU beer being infected.

Don't worry keep brewing. Congrats on liking your own beer!
