I'd also chime in on The Commons. If you're up that way then you're also by a number of other excellent options, including Cascade if sour beer is your thing.

If it's a Wednesday evening, you could walk across the street to the Green Dragon tap room and introduce yourself.

I consistently have issues just handling jalapenos without gloves. I tend to touch or wipe my eye aftereward and it is over...

Ah, yes, and also remember to wash your hands BEFORE you use the restroom!

Haha...good call! I have tried washing my hands multiple times, coating with olive oil but nothing seems to to work...Luckily I haven't had any of the issues you are referring to...

On that note I'll share a cautionary tale -  I ONCE went to the bathroom after making a blazing bottle of habanero/Thai dragon pepper hot sauce and paid the price.  Suffice it to say............well, draw your own conclusions. Not good.   ;)

Ha! Once is enough for sure...gloves. Soap doesnt always get the oils off.  I found out the hard way. jerry lee lewis style.

Goodness, gracious!

Hey all,

$300
Never used.  Let me know if you're interested.

Indeed, a mistake you only make once. :)

Trust me, you won't regret going. What you will regret is every year you miss one. I will not be going this year and I totally regret that!

Same here. :(

After much consideration I recently upgraded to the Milwaukee-101 from a Hannah Instruments pH EP+.
I still have a hard time trusting automatic calibration & temperature compensation.  Others have mentioned the pros and cons. Confidence in calibration is a big one for me.

Good advice.  Don't let folks completely scare you off of the crystal.  Just use it with a light touch and know why you're adding a particular grade.

I agree, Steve. I like crystal with a light touch - I just think it gets way overdone. Too much of a good thing. I like 5% in IPA, even 7% in APA, then dried out with gypsum. I'm more of a 'crystal limiter' than a hater.  ;D

Everything in moderation. Except peat. :)
