Is there a way to notify admins about spam like the 2 Woolrich coat topics up right now in General Homebrew Discussions?

The 'Report to Moderator' Button.
I wonder why I couldn't find that last night?  I thought I had seen it but couldn't find it.  That's what happens when I go on the site sober I guess.

I have to log in every time and I can use pretty much any password I want

Saturday morning edit:
This time I used "mypassword" and got in.
I just tried logging in as punatic(sorry, it was the last name I saw) with the password "everyman" and it logged me in as myself.

I bought a counter pressure filler from morebeer.com.  I used it for a while with good results about half the time, the rest of the time my wife and I were getting sprayed.  Never did figure out why 3 or 4 bottles filled perfectly, then the next spewed everywhere and no settings changed.  Finally I got a Beergun and never looked back.
Also I have an inline oxygenator.  Once I turned the gas on it would override the flow from my March pump and everything came to a standstill.  I have a much stronger pump now, I'll give it another shot soon.

It depends on whether you want a hint of smoke, subtle smoke or lots of smoke.  I would add a couple of pounds of base malt, and another pound of smoked malt.  Also I would go with .75 pounds of black patent along with the .50 of chocolate.

That looks great, but it'll have to wait until 2015 for me.

  The first thing he noticed were my 6 taps and his comment was that he wished he had come to my house first with a few growlers instead of going to the beer store. 

That's just rude. Or as my mom would say, "tacky"

Are you from the South?  The employee is so he would have understood "tacky"

I had an employee show up at my house one afternoon while I was brewing.  The first thing he noticed were my 6 taps and his comment was that he wished he had come to my house first with a few growlers instead of going to the beer store.  I politely but firmly told him I would love to teach him to brew so he could enjoy the fruits of a few 6-8 hour brewdays but homebrewed doesn't mean free.

And I thought I was the only one who brewed a crabapple brett blonde.  Mine never got as brettish as I hoped but it was still very tasty and the keg didn't last long.  I just harvested and froze 24 pounds of crabapples, enough for 2 good batches.
I left mine on the fruit for several months, racked to a keg and left it 6 months.  It dried out nicely, developed a crisp apple flavor but the brett was subdued.  I used a vial of Brett B and the dregs from a couple of bottles of Orval to make a starter, so I know the brett was active.

Well said.  My situation is very similar, and I also fell blessed.  Homebrewing is fun, but the people we've met through homebrewing are what we're really thankful for.  Cheers

Anybody who comes to my house is welcome to as much of almost anything I have on tap as they can handle.  But before I let people pull a pint of a specialty beer like a rauchbier or something sour I give them a 4 oz taster glass.  I do get irritated at glasses half full of those beers sitting on the counter attracting flies.
I don't bottle beer so i rarely take homebrew to parties(I take my own storebought stuff to share) and I don't let people fill growlers to take home-if I'm not good enough to drink WITH my beer is too good for you.

Since Thursday night our high has been 33F, just briefly this after.  But this afternoon it started sleeting and now it's snowing.  It probably won't amount to much but it is a real nuisance.

Hop Growing / Re: Requests to Hops Growers
« on: November 21, 2013, 07:58:03 PM »

Multihead is a variety grown in New Mexico. I just bought some on
I talked to some guys a couple of years ago who were doing some research into wild hops found in NM, but they were very tight with info.  I saw somewhere that El Dorado is a hop developed from wild hops in NM but I don't know if that's true or not, and I've never heard of Multihead.

I actually spoke with Todd a few months ago and he did say that he began with wild NM hops that they found at high elevation (8000 feet) and kept the ones that did well at 6000, also mentioned that there are a good proportion of citrus compounds to be found in the varieties that came out of their breeding efforts.  He also mentioned that he worked out a deal with a grower up in Yakima to take over his project.  Here's a little background: http://www.santafe.com/article/humulus-lupulus-neomexicanus and where to buy cuttings: http://www.rnventerprises.com/files/Variety_Descriptions_20134.pdf.

Never used any of them myself but would like to in the future.
Thanks, I bookmarked it so I can order in the spring.

Kegging an oatmeal stout tomorrow and brewing an IPA on Sunday.  I'm gonna use a recipe boulderbrewer came up with for me a while back.
