Wouldn't that be fun?! Well, if there weren't hopyard dogs.  My friend should take along hamburger and dilaudid.  :o

 I have this one friend, he was wondering if the location of Simcoe acreage was public knowledge.

Excellent, thank's for the helpful comments everyone.  I'll plan on breaking out the brewhauler to keep the back happy and prevent StarSan backflow and I'm glad to know the orange siphon caps fit too.  I really like being able to move the beer with CO2.

This evening I've been hearing and watching an old dead maple across the creek breaking up under the weight of vernal snowstorm.

Equipment and Software / BetterBottle transport
« on: March 22, 2012, 12:55:04 AM »
I picked up my first 6 gallon BetterBottle today to use as a secondary. I've always used glass carboys and I'm wondering about the best way to carry it when full or more accurately lower it into the fermentation freezer. Do folks prefer to use the carboy straps or the orange neck handles? I'm not sure I trust the neck handle with the full weight of the beer in a plastic carboy.

Very cool, I'll give it a couple test runs next week.

Oh man, I can only imagine how bad that must have been. Last summer I left some grain in the tun for maybe two days and was gagging while I cleaned it out. That spent grain goes really bad in a big hurry.

I wouldn't worry too much unless you catch them sneaking off to cut a hole in the lake and go ice fishing with a case of LaBatt's.

Yeah it's crazy there's a weird front spinning over the Willamette valley. They're expecting as much as 5" in Eugene tonight.

It's 87df in Grand Rapids MI and snowing in Portland, OR on the first day of spring. Wow.

Taking next week off from work, I have kegs to clean, beer to rack and I'd like to get two batches in. I'm thinking of something new to me... a Maibock and a Kolsch.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Anyone have problems with US-05 lately?
« on: March 21, 2012, 09:35:36 AM »
Did you rehydrate prior to pitching?  You can lose a lot of yeast by not rehydrating and it could be the reason for a slow start.  Whenever I've used 05 and rehydrated, it took off pretty quick.

I used to just dump it in when I used this yeast regularly.   Now, I keep some on hand for "emergencies" and always rehydrate.  Rehydration definitely reduces mortality and lag time.

I see 2... 3 tops.
No disrespect, Payton's one of the few pro's I still like to watch.  I just don't see 5 more years.

As A Thinking Individual, I Couldn't Possibly Care Less.

I agree, who cares. Move this topic to the meaningless thread. :D

GO DUCKS!
