I'd like to see an "About Us" section on their website...unless I'm totally missing it. 

Even with free shipping, prices are a little higher than I get at North Country ( at least as long as they are still willing to sell to me ).  Nice to have options though.

Anyone yet wonder if this is their wife?

Some ideas:

  AHA membership if he doesn't have one
  Several homebrewing books ( Designing Great Beers, Yeast, Brew Like a Monk )
  Some special glassware for his homebrew
  Custom Tap handles for kegerator
  Custom Mash Paddle
  Misc items for man cave/brew house ( i.e. mirror, lights, brewing posters )

Don't know if it matters, but I am planning on having 4 taps with an APA, an American Amber, and an English Bitter for house ales and the last tap being for whatever else catches my fancy.

Assuming you only have one tank and regulator, the only issue here is if the other style needs to be carbonated at a different volume ( i.e. Trippel ).  I have mine set at 12psi at 40F which puts me around 2.5 volumes for everything, but I can live with that.

To Phillamb, the OP...Thanks A Lot!!!!  I just found out it works on my droid.  Now I'll get no work done :)

Funny I was having trouble getting it to work last night on my Win7 laptop.  Couldn't get it to run on the Playstation either.

P.S. All sarcasm aside...thanks for the link!

I setup a personal UPS account, print my label at home, and bring the box into the office for the daily UPS issues ever.

The Sunday Sessions are 3-4 hours in length...let's hope no one's drive is that long.

I thought it was a bore.  And yes, Sam seems a bit full of himself.  But to give you some perspective, probably not as much as Jamil Z.

Do you know Jamil??

+100 Denny!!

Watched it last night ( have a Season Pass on Tivo ).  I enjoyed it very much.  Being it was the first episode, I can see where it could be a little DFH-centric.  Sam seems like a cool guy ( he is from New England afterall ) and even the rapping was funny ( though I don't want to see it every week ).

I'm definately looking forward to the next episode.

I would suggest a rootkit scan.  Some virus and malware scanner won't pick up a rootkit.

If this is a windows systems, you could use this:

Bitdefender also make a rootkit scanner, and I believe the new AVG antivirus software has rootkit scanning ability. 

See if that finds anything.  Good luck.

I taped it.

People still use tape? :)

Got my season pass set on Tivo.  Couldn't watch last night because I was watching the Pats game that I Tivo'd from earlier in the day...too stressed out to watch anything else after that.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Comment on proposed keg cleaning procedure
« on: November 19, 2010, 01:53:39 PM »
First, I'm not sure how affective a cleaner Star San is.  I know on the Brew Strong episode with Five Star they said it would be affective in cleaning inorganic compounds but organic stuff should be cleaned with an alkaline solution, like PBW.  Also, when I kick a keg, I usually have more than just a bit of residual beer in the bottom.  I wouldn't feel like I could get all that stuff up the diptube.

Secondly, it seems like a waste of CO2 to push 5 gallons of sanitizer in then push 5 gallons out the other side when it's just as easy to open the top, dump in your cleaner, and then dump it out.  I do push a little sanitizer out to kill the bugs in the line and diptube but not 5 gallons worth.

Isn't he that robot made up of 5 other robots? Oh wait, that's Voltron :)

Good luck jlowsho with your new obsession!

I'm going on Thanksgiving night to see Part 1.  Going to be too crazy this weekend to see it.
