I want to start doing more projects combining my beers with food.  I figure Thanksgiving is a perfect time to start playing around with new ideas.  Does anybody have any recipes or suggestions for holiday dishes using homebrew. 

P.S.  My current brews available are a Oatmeal Milk Stout, a Coffee Stout, and a English IPA.

What would say total cost would be for this set up with the temperature control added on?

The magnets on the labels are definately a smart idea.  As far as label making software you should be able to find a cheap option if you search the internet a bit.

Well done sir, very good design. I need to make something similar, but it would have to work in a basement.  I think of using a water hearter coil instead of burners.

Has anyone tried the Colonial spruce beer recipe from Zymurgy magazine a few months back?

I started watching this in season 3 and my wife laughed at me. After she heard Katy Sagal got an award, she watched the finale, got hooked and we ended up getting the first 2 seasons to catch up on it. It's not for the faint of heart, but I love the dark humor. .

Katy Sagal definately deserves an award for her role on the show.  There are many amazing actors and actresses on it, but her  performance always stands out.  I think half of them should be winning awards, but her most of all.

I don't know if anybody else watches this show, but it's been getting real juicy recently.  I felt like putting up a post in case anybody would want to rant about it with me.   

Beer for Boobs Competition this Saturday at Weasel Boy Brewery in Zanesville.  I will be judging and entering a beer, so it should be fun.

Not sure, but one the the winners was through my new homebrew club SODZ.  You might want to inquire throuh them to see if they have the recipe available for use.

Reading Drew's article about knocking out a batch and serving within six days.

Now that I have proper temp control his method is more accessible to me. Crashing primary ar the end of the third day;  racking to keg on the fourth and continuing to crash; transferring to another keg on the fifth with carbonating and serving on the sixth.

For average strength beers why isn't this approach considered to be more conventional? Oftentimes people are strongly advised to leave their beer in primary for much longer for conditioning purposes.

While I have turned around beers in less than a week before my habit has been to follow a convention that doesn't 100% make sense to me. Shouldn't this approach be taught more?

I agree it seems like it would be beneficial to know both methods(Quick and Traditional) and determine the proper method based on the project at hand. I've rarely heard anyone talk about doing a quick batch, and almost never seen a reference guide on the process.(Outside this recent article)

I'm reading his book right now, dang good read.
