Congrats man. I entered the same competition and took a first and a third in the Pilsner category and a first in Light Hybrid.

Is Thirsty Bear in San Fran going to brew your beer and if so are you going there when they make it? My wife and I went to Thirsty Bear 5 years ago when we were on our honeymoon, nice place. If you go check out The Monks Kettle while you are there.

Congrats again. Nice to see other organic brewers out there.

Equipment and Software / Re: Devising a Mash Tun for One Gallon Batches
« on: August 27, 2013, 05:39:23 PM »
About 4 years ago a made a mash tun from a 3 gallon Coleman beverage cooler (blue). I made it to do 5 gallon partial mash batches and it has a ss braid. It is probably big enough to do 1 or 2 gallon AG batches, although I have never tried. It works great for partial mash, holds temps if it is pre heated and I never had any issues with the ss braid. I think I got mine from Target or Amazon, don't remember what I paid for it. I did have to buy the longer pipe nipple and an extra silicone washer to attach the ball valve.

I couldn't figure out how to post a picture so here is a link to the one that I have. Mine is the one on the left with the bigger handle, must be the old style. I will try to post a picture of mine if I can figure it out.

Is your laptop pulling an IP address?

Type CMD then enter
Type ipconfig then enter

Your IP address should start with 192.168. for a home router.

All Things Food / Kitchen Knives
« on: December 01, 2012, 02:50:39 PM »
Looking for recomendations for a kitchen knife set. I am not a pro chef so I don't need a $400.00 set of knives. I am looking for something good quality in the $100.00-$150.00 or so range. I have read reviews for a number of sets in that price range and they mixed. I was looking at Victorinox 8-Piece Knife Block Set
 online and the reviews are good and it is in my price range. Any suggestions or recomendations?


General Homebrew Discussion / Beer recipe credit
« on: September 16, 2012, 01:56:21 PM »
I am going to be entering a couple beers in competitions that were based on recipes I found online or in magazines. I did not brew any of the recipes identical to the original recipes. I changed either the yeast, types and amounts of malts and/or hops. One recipe I only chagned the yeast and the amount of spices added.

Evan though the recipes I brewed are not exact to the original recipes, but based on the original recipes, should I name them the original recipe names? Should I just make a note on the entry sheet which recipe I based mine on?
