Equipment and Software / I hate going to the LHBS...
« on: March 19, 2011, 03:12:02 PM »
Because I never have enough money to buy everything I want, which is everything they have...

I went there to buy grain, hops and yeast...

I came home with:

Bayou Classic KAB6 Burner
Racking cane, Bottle filler, Carboy Cap
20' Tubing
1L Flask for starters
3 Bungs, 2 Airlocks, Funnel, Giant SS Spoon
Star-san, grain bag, BYO magazine...

And enough grain, hops and etc for making a nice big batch of beer.

The Total?

And my wife was no help at all standing next to me cheering me on going "do you need one of these? what about this? ohhhh look at that!"


Yeast and Fermentation / Bought the wrong yeast...

So I'm trying my hand at making my own Northern English Brown Ale recipe and forgot to write down the Wyeast # before I left for the LHBS. They only had White Labs and by mistake I said "English Ale Yeast" instead of "London Ale Yeast".

So instead of getting Wyeast 1028/WhiteLabs WLP013 I got WhiteLabs WLP002. Is this going to make a huge difference in the style profile? Its a 40min 1-way trip to the LHBS, should I bring it back and get the WLP013?

Any info appreciated.

will the chemicals in the pressure-treated wood have any effect on the hops?

I recently upgraded my equipment and bought a complete kit from William's, this 32qt kettle was in the kit, I'm very happy with it. The valve is great for transferring wort without having to lift that sucker when its pretty full. Just something to consider.

Brewer's Edge 32 Quart Brew Kettle

Cheers and welcome to the forum!

What about that time you got caught naked with a bowl of jello?

Was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?

You are chris knight, arent you? I hope, so I'm wearing his underwear.

daaaaaaaamn where can we get those giant ceramic crock pots?
Tony, My father in law has quite a few of those old crocks...

that's awesome, now I have to find one, even if I just keep my brewing accessories in it heh

99 subie outback 30th anniv edition, never had to do more than typical maintenance (oil, filters, tires, etc). Its ok on gas but its def the best purchase i've ever made, $10k in 2003. I'd have to go look at the mileage but its def over 100k. If you're looking for another used car a Subaru should be near the top of the list imo.

Here's a pict of my baby playin in the snow:

Space beer reaches final frontier

"An Australian brewing company has, for the first time, manufactured a space beer. As in, a beer that can actually be consumed in space! This is most certainly one giant leap for beer affectionados."

Nice job! It really looks good. How far apart are the taps (on center)? They look a little close together once the tap handles are on.

Ah ok, so if i let both sit for a few minutes and reach the same temp then the flavors, etc would be the same?
