This book didn't help at all...I threw it into the boil at 15 minutes and the beer still came out horrible  ;D

Got mine last week but haven't had a chance to crack it open yet.  Also missed the show last night but will be listening to the archive today.  Better this way anyways...I never remember what's said when I listen live.

Wish you continued success on the book!

Damn it!!! No NH shipping...that figures!   >:(

I actually emailed them and they said they are working on it...hopefully it will be sooner than later.  They offer a lot of stuff I can't get here on the east coast.

McDonald's is trying to hire 50k people today...just sayin'  ;D

Anybody on the east coast get their copy yet?

Not yet, but then I usually get my Zymurgy about one week after everyone else.

Something tells me you can blame your own state laws.  Bummer. 

Absolutely...but I can get wine delivered here.  It just gets frustrating.

They do ship to Mass. which I find odd since they have some of the most antiquated liquors laws in the country and a strong distirbutor lobby.

Damn it!!! No NH shipping...that figures!   >:(

You can pre-chill the water by coiling the hose in an ice bath before it goes through the chiller. 

You could also look into a whirlpool chiller ( check Morebeer for Jamil's whirlpool chiller ) where you use a pump and copper tube to recirculate the wort to speed cooling. It also creates a whirlpool so the trub cone forms in the middle.

Lastly, you could do a no-chill method like a lot of Australians do.  Plenty of info on the interwebs about that.

The subject of this thread is an oxymoron.

Not if you are one of these 18K filers making over $500k:

Friday was a DC holiday ( emmancipation day ) so it got bumped to today.

Mine were done a couple months ago, and the month was spent 2 months before that  :D

I'd blame JP if he still worked there.  Hell...let's blame him anyways.

Just a note:  it works for me and did earlier this morning ( about 11am edt )

Equipment and Software / Re: Cheap Fermentation Temp Control?
« on: April 14, 2011, 06:06:13 PM »
A tub of water with frozen bottle of water work.  Keep some in the freezer and swap out when the ones in the tub thaw out and rotate.

Other methods include putting the fermenter in a little bit of water and covering it with a t-shirt.  You can also put a fan on it to help keep the temp low.

Also, keep an eye on Craiglist and if you have room for a small fridge, you can get one cheap and spend the money left over on a temperature controller.

If you use distilled water, it is no problem.  I know people mix their sanitizer and keep it in a spare keg and pull off what they need.

If you use your regular water, the minerals in there may affect the SS over time.

I'm happy to announce the official launch party for my book will be on the Session on the Brewing Network on Sunday April 24th.  I'll be there in person, and will be signing books that will be available in their BN store after the show.  For those of you used to this moderated forum environment, the BN is a bit more, um, free-wheeling.  That's your only warning.   ;)

WOOHOO!!!!! Gordon at The Rat Pad!!!!
