All Things Food / Re: Knife sharpener
« on: June 16, 2012, 09:30:03 AM »
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?

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, 09:31:34 AM »
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.

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?

My little buddy Maximus Lincoln loves to hang out and nap nearby while I'm brewing hoping to snag some grain or a drop of wort.  He's also the reason I don't need a drip tray on the kegerator.

you gotta watch that, hops and dogs don't mix. There are some dogs that will have a very nasty reaction to hops, Hyperthermia if I a) recall correctly and b) was correctly informed.

However I beleive it's like chocolate and dogs, some dogs are okay others not so much.

But, hops and dogs are two of my favorite things!
Seriously though, he doesn't go for whole hops or pellets.  He's more of a grain dog. I don't let him have it but man does he get excited when the mill comes out. Before I was aware of his affinity for grain I left a bucket of freshly milled grist down on his level, when I returned to the garage I found him ears deep just going for it. When he looked up he looked like Al Pacino on a bender.  As for beer he only gets a couple drips from the tap a time so his dosage is miniscule but he's right there every time. He'll even get up from a nap if he thinks I'm heading for the garage.
