All those 40's of Old English I drank years ago. Actually gave me the s***s.

Just took mine apart. Wouldn't pump. Hop fibers build-up. Very easy.

Suddenly I'm hungry.

And never to early to prepare.

Use some lotion and it'll be ok. Really.

I was thinking about that too. Somewhere to put the beer in a holding pattern. Good thing I have 14 kegs...

Just blended...

Eleven day old Pale Ale and 6 week old Brown Ale 50/50. I can see that it's a marriage of sorts. Fruity young PA complements the intense dark Crystal and Chocolate grains of the BA. Tastes and smells pretty good . Not every blend will be optimal. There has to be an intent.

Hi my name is euge and I'm a blender...

The practice of secondary fermentation has fallen out of favor with homebrewers and is considered redundant as far as I can tell. I just go to keg or bottle once the attenuative phase has passed. That can be as soon as 5 days or up to 10 or more.

I've done it a few times, back in the 90's and when dry-hopping. It's not about fermentation cause it's 99% done already, but to let more yeast and "floaties" settle out, or to add fruit, herbs, spices or whatnot. Believe me if one uses a yeast with high flocculation characteristics it'll be clear in the primary and certainly no need for additional clarification techniques as cumbersome as a secondary vessel. It can all be done in primary for that matter...

Equipment and Software / Another March pump question

I'm looking at my pump and the screws holding the head on. I'm pretty sure I can replace this if broken, however can the head be removed for cleaning? Any special thing to consider when removing the head of the pump?

Just kegged the brew and got 4 liters extra to force-carb. Drinking a pint. I mean gulping it:D This beer turned out great! Slight esters- hints of pear. Body's a tad thinner. I thought with the sugar bringing the gravity down 32 IBU would be too bitter but no... it's just fine.

Smell went away and was replaced by healthy beer smell. Finished at 1.012 so the sugar must have done the trick at bringing the gravity down.

Jeebus I was worried. This needs to go on tap in about two weeks. To think I nearly poured it out but posted a thread instead!  :o

I'm not about to go argue with a store or department manager anymore... it would probably end up on youtube.   :D ???

It might even get autotuned and break into the pop charts!

That was fookin awesome! He's right about the walking. Especially here in the South. Cars and AC's the way to go...

Ordered an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S i9000. Should be here in a few days. Did the research. Not enough evidently, but I got the gist of the phone off of xda-developers (thanks!).

I'm mainly interested in what the phone already brings to the table, access-point etc, but the option to root and flash the phone with custom ROMs remains a priority. Turns out to flash a Samsung device one still needs windows to run a program called "odin" even though the phone's running linux. Grrr.

Don't even have a copy of windows. Well now I do thanks to Piratebay. ;) Also installed Virtualbox and then installed an unattended-install stream-lined version of XP. Woo. I'm amazed at how well this works and how well XP runs in this environment.

Hopefully, will be hitting this site and others with my Samsung soon. Already have a buyer lined up for the iPhone 3gs 32g.

I'll get bored soon enough and switch phones again...

Downloading the mp3 now. Thanks.

I'll listen to it while brewing today. After all. I'm all about the Brown ale at this point. When I get my recipes nailed down and getting close with my latest I might try some blending.

LOL Denny's now a "brewmaster"... just like the rest of us. ;D

It is fun How about next year at this time when more people have thousands of posts? Couldn't there be some "hidden levels" albeit with amusing titles? For example such as @ 4000 might produce something witty and random based on the high post count.
