General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Can't clean fermenter
« on: March 26, 2013, 05:44:46 PM »
A several day soak of Oxyclean has always cleaned my better bottles.  Have you tried using warm water with Oxyclean, around 120F.  It's not hot enough to warp the BB but may work better with soaking.  Eventually it will cool but you should get a good few hours at warmer temperatures.

You could also stick a wash cloth in there with some warm oxyclean/pbw solution and shake the hell out of it.

If you are brewing lagers anyways, I'd stick with RO.  My water is pretty good brewing water but for my lagers, I find it easier to just build from distilled.

Wow...that's a lot of sodium in there.  I think mine is 18.

They received my yesterday at the new location with no problem.  I'm sure it was no one was available to accept delivery or they are getting overloaded with entries and need a day to catch up.

Are you using your forum account to try to log in?  I know I have a different login for the forum than I do for the AHA site.  I just logged in and went to the voting section.

All Things Food / Re: Rabbits
« on: March 22, 2013, 03:22:42 PM »
My eldest daughter has already told me she will not eat rabbit.  And she has warned my youngest daughter that I have rabbit in the freezer.

More for me.

Or just don't tell 'em what they're eating?  :)

Tastes just like chicken anyways  ;)

My entries are on their way.   Only bottle labels were required, right?  The rules and info on the region 11 site said to include your entry form and payment in box along with your entries along with bottle labels attached to your bottles (I know, rubber bands only...no tape :) ).  I didn't see an entry form and the entries were prepaid as required by the AHA, so I assumed this was just the standard template for this competition software.

Good luck to all that are entering!

Are the results posted yet?  ;)

As far as negativity, I'v found it's often a 2-way street. nothing against you montanagray, but if you spend time on some of the other forums out there, you'll find that alot of them are filled with snobs who would rather criticize than help. Not the case here.

Which is the reason I left the green board and Beer Advocate.

Once they are all out, I'm going to throw each book into my brew kettle and see what I get. ;D

I think Colin or John said they're shooting for September 2013.
