All Things Food / Re: Knife sharpener
« on: June 17, 2012, 05:52:43 PM »
I use a Lansky sharpening kit.  It's not super fast but it produces the best edge of anything I've ever used.  Easily shaving sharp.  I've stopped sharpening knives for other people because they aren't careful enough and cut themselves.  It's happened twice, once quite badly because they didn't realize just how sharp a knife could be.

Which set you do have Gmac?
Just the basic 3 stone set. I like the consistency of the angle. Not that you can't do it by hand but the gauge ensures you have it right each time.

cool. i think i may spring for this. thanks.
I'm liking this set up too.I have a lot of sharpening to do. My GF is a chronic blade abuser.

Well, if you want to celebrate and hasten the decline of the English language, sure. Quote a definition of irony from the internet.

Speaking of ironic, here: http://www.dailywritingtips.com/what-is-irony-with-examples/

(see what I just did there?  ;) )
Yeah, is it ironic or not ironic that you are hastening (or not hastening) the decline of the English language by linking to an online definition of irony?

Apparently not. ;D

I use the "keezer" model made from a chest freezer. Once things are in place it's still easy access all of the connections if adjustments are necessary. Swap outs don't involve moving other kegs out of the way. Drawbacks to the chest freezer would be the awkward lifting of full kegs into the keezer and cleanout is not as easy as it would be with "fridge" model.

WTF, I'm posting the "share this via.." URL from flickr. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong in trying to post a photo?

Mod Edit: fixed it for you
Thanks Drew! What the heck, I was able to follow your edits using the HTML, there's gotta be an easier way.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WLP007
« on: June 14, 2012, 04:31:34 PM »
I'm gonna have to disagree with everybody on this one.  I've used it twice, on 2 different styles and it left a yeasty flavor that I could not drink.  I turned one keg into malt vinegar that was good, I left one keg in the fridge over a year before it was drinkable and I gave a second batch away for birthday parties.
Well, that's not what I wanted to hear.
So, in case it sucks; how do you make malt vinegar?

No brewing per se, but racking & crashing the "express" IPA, ramping down the Oktoberfest from a D-rest, serving a Nut Brown at my cousin's birthday party and cleaning kegs. Maybe it's time to make that vanilla creme soda for the kiddos.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WLP007
« on: June 14, 2012, 02:38:01 PM »
I recently brewed a coffee stout using the WLP 007.  It looked like egg drop soup on the stir plate.  I'm now 10 days into fermentation.  Checked the gravity last night and was at 1.016.  OG was 1.064.  Activity is nearly absent in the airlock too.  Gonna keg this weekend and add my cold steeped coffee.  Next up, ESB.  Gonna use the east cake from the stout.

I noticed the same thing in my 007 starter last weekend.  My GF walked by it and called to me "Hey! There's something wrong with our starter!"
Extremely flocculant stuff.  I had a flask of 1098 right next to it which I heard was the Wyeast brand of the same strain. While it was very cloudy it had nothing near the egg drop/cold break appearance that the 007 started did.

The most important item...don't forget to get your tasting glass.  :D

Just to clarify, you don't mean bring a tasting glass do you?  You're reminding us to get our NHC tasting glass when we register, yes?
