Another low tech idea that might work is just taking one of those stainless steel kitchen scrubies and jamming it over the intake.

Something like this:

I haven't tried it myself since I have a horizontal connector with a bazooka screen, but it just might be crazy enough to work.

Thanks for taking one for the team, but after reading that list of chemicals I wouldn't take another sip of that stuff even if you paid me...

You could also work it like the way the guys on the Pawn Shop tv shows do it:

"What's your lowest bottom line price?" or "what's the least you'll take for it?"

Then offer him 20% of that and let him talk you up a little.

There could be a silver lining here:

Maybe, eventually, all hop/rye puns will be used up and breweries will be forced to use less stupid-sounding names:

"Hoppopotamus IPA", "Ryenheitsgebot American Lager", "Hoptimus Prime", "Golden Hopportunity blah blah", etc.


+1 I thought I might be the only one that was sick of this BS.

Mine sits nicely in the channel that runs down the center of the cooler. There is a small gap underneath, maybe 1/8" or less, so I guess if you wanted to you could bend the screen downward a bit or flatten it, but that just doesn't seem pragmatic and I can't imagine the loss is more than an oz.

Plus, it looks awesome!

I agree with Narcout, I have the same bulkhead, mash screen and a valve on the outside, works flawlessly.

Yeah, I'm lucky to have a liquor store near me that sells 12-packs of SNPA for $13.99 (its usually $16.99 in my area). I'll pickup a 12 of SNPA then 1 or 2 sixes of something I've never tried before which usually runs $8.99-10.99.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: All grain jump

All of your questions have been answered, but for me, smelling and tasting the grains before I brew is one of my favorite parts of the all-grain process that can't be duplicated with extract. If you don't believe me, stick your finger in the extract and taste it :) Plus, the spent grain makes great chicken food!

so sorry to hear this

Not sure how many extract batches I did beforehand, but I took an 8 yr break then did about 3 or 4 extract batches before going all-grain.

He'll the beer will kill me before the BPA does.

You could also be hit by a bus, but you still look both ways when you cross a street!

But hear is the cans are lined with BPA and the FDA has not banned it

If you saw a list of the things the FDA said was safe that later showed as poisonous, cancerous or harmful you'd need all day to read it. ;)

Just a heads up!

Ya. Just can't do that. I have ss 16oz cup I bought for on the go on the river but it makes all my beer tast tinny. I use 64 oz Nalgene bottles. They are super bad ass. I also use 32 oz nalgene to bring samples to club meetings. They are hard to find but I will share my sweet spot with all that wishes to us nalgenes.

Check the bottom of those bottles, if its has a #3 or #7 it can leech BPA into whatever your drinking. Nalgene was known for using BPA plastics in the past so I would check just to be sure.

Well, I saw this on tap at a local bar on the Seaside Boardwalk so I figured I'd give it a go...

It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great or memorable either and while I was drinking it I remarked that I would probably never order another one again. There was something I know I didn't like about it, but couldn't put my finger on it at the time. I logged onto to give it a check-in and a rating of 1 star and that's when I saw that it was made by Coors. Sneaky bastids trying to push their swill as a new craft beer brand.

Well, they had me fooled until I tasted it. Way to go Coors Marketing Team!
