No, wait, with flash disabled it gives me a link that says "Using a screen reader? Click here".  Doing so gets you the HTML5 version.

If you're at least getting that brushed metal gray background on the Kindle, try scrolling down to see if you can find it.  I saw it like halfway down the page, so it might be that it's just not visible at first.

I never get to the metal gray background. When I input user id and password it goes nowhere, blanks out the fields for id and password and nothing happens. I was hoping that the app would take care of this issue for me. I'd sure like to be able to read all the archived versions on my Kindle HD.

I was not sure if it was Flash or not.
If it is a Flash Applet, it does not surprise me that it doesn't work on the Kindle Fire HD. I've read that the new Kindle's are not supporting Flash. I think Apple still does so that's probably why that works.
Thanks for the info, looking forward to the Android App.

Zymurgy / eZymurgy on Kindle Fire HD

Anybody else have issues signing in and reading eZymurgy on a Kindle Fire HD? I can't even sign in, just sits there and does nothing. Tried the change password etc. Just wondering if it's a glitch or something I'm doing.

I kept getting clogged bottling wands and finding hop matter in my beers until I got one of these.


As an added bonus it helps oxygenate my wort.

I strain using 5 gallon paint strainers. That's a great strainer, anything special about it and where did you find it?

Personally I'd back the IBUs off to about 50 or 55 just to make it more balanced.  Are you looking for an IPA or an APA?  OG would be more of an APA wouldn't it?  For me, balance would make it more drinkable than just lowering the OG.
It will still be an awesome beer and one I'd like to drink as is but if you're not a real hop head, would it still be all day drinkable?
I'm calling it an IPA because of the IBU, although brewing exact to style is not a concern. I usually end up with a bit better efficiency so I think I'll gain a few points. That may help balance it a bit. I'm brewing a Cream as well for the non hop heads.

looks tasty to me - i'd like the OG higher, but I'm assuming its low for the "all day" factor.

Yep I was purposely trying to keep it on the low side. We start cooking Friday night, go all night and the party is Saturday.

Keep the dry (now wet) hops, and rub the inside of the pig with them.  Not much flavor, but your friends will be impressed.  LOL. 

(first hand experience)
I think a great idea if I was using leaf.

Plan is to brew my house APA using Nelson hops, and if the weather holds a batch of Pig Roast IPA to check the recipe.

So is "Centennial Type" a hop blend? I have heard about a Columbus/Cascade mix to create something similar.
Yep, it is the Cascade/Columbus combo. I've not used it before.

Beer Recipes / IPA for Pig Roast
« on: May 29, 2013, 12:01:10 PM »
I’m looking for any comments. I’m planning this for our annual Pig Roast in September. I purchased some “Centennial Type” hops last year and thought this may be a nice opportunity to use them. I’m looking for an easy drinking IPA. I’m looking for a nice citrus flavor but with a little more depth than just Centennials. I’m hoping the FWH, 15 minute steep, and Ahtanum will provide that. My house IPA is straight 2-Row with a little C40 or C20, I was hoping to get a little more depth to the malt, that’s the purpose of the Maris Otter. Like I said it’s for our pig roast so it’s got to be “all-day” drinkable.

10.50 Gallons
O.G. 1.056
IBU 66

14.00 lb   Pale Malt (2 Row) US (1.9 SRM)                 66.7 %
6.00 lb   Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM)      28.6 %
1.00 lb   Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM)   4.8 %

2.00 oz   Centennial Type [9.70 %] - First Wort 20.0 min   23.2 IBUs
1.00 oz   Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min                      23.4 IBUs
2.00 oz   Centennial Type [9.70 %] - Boil 10.0 min      12.6 IBUs
2.00 oz   Centennial Type [9.70 %] - Boil 5.0 min      6.9 IBUs
2.00 oz   Centennial Type [9.70 %] - Aroma Steep 15.0 min   0.0 IBUs

2.0 pkg   Safale American (DCL/Fermentis #US-05) [50.28 ml]   Yeast   9
   -
2.00 oz   Ahtanum [5.20 %] - Dry Hop 7.0 Days      0.0 IBUs
2.00 oz   Amarillo [9.30 %] - Dry Hop 7.0 Days   Hop      0.0 IBUs
2.00 oz   Centennial Type [9.70 %] - Dry Hop 7.0 Days      0.0 IBUs

Thanks Guys!

Measure remaining out into 1 tablespoon portions and wrap in plastic wrap. Then into a ziploc and freeze.
