Zymurgy / Re: Zymurgy online?!?!
« on: January 05, 2012, 06:54:37 AM »
As for comments on downloadable versions and flash, please keep in mind that the online eZymurgy is just the first step.  We'll be adding iPod/iPhone, iPad and Android apps that will offer much better functionality for use with mobile devices.  We'll also be adding additional back issues this year, giving members access to a large archive of Zymurgy content.

Great!!!  Like I don't waste enough time at work already ;)

Thanks for making the AHA a great group to be a part of!!

The Pats lost to Buffalo,
Not this last time they didn't.  ;)  I know they were down 21-0, but outscoring your opponent 49-0 in 3 quarters says something about a team.

Of course they could be 1-15, an no one will change my mind that they are best team!!

GO PATS!!!

Think the Pats will finally get over their fear of winning a playoff game this year?  Or will the curse of the helmet catch continue?

The only team in the AFC I would be worried about is the Ravens.  But since they are the number 2 ( tee hee ), they wouldn't see them until the AFC Championship game in Foxboro.  So yes, I think they will get over their "fear" and win their first game.  Then continue on to win the AFC, then the Superbowl.

I would like to see the Patriots vs the Packers, and get some payback for Superbowl XXXI.

Can you point out the problems to me?   ;)

Not enough hours in the day, perhaps?

Comcast predicts the Jets will play the Pats on 1/15, and Green Bay will play Atlanta on 1/14.  Also the Ravens play the Chiefs on 1/8.

I think something may be wrong with the guide.


:D J...E...T...S....JETS JETS JETS!!  :D

So, is there no host hotel information until February 1?

That's what Gary Glass has said.

Equipment and Software / Re: Stirstarter.com
« on: December 30, 2011, 09:49:22 AM »
I bought mine from a BN-sponsor ( Nikobrew ) for the same price that stirstarter charged.  I love this stirplate and have not had a single problem with it.  Thankfully I have not had any reason to contact the man but it's nice to know he's there if something does come up.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Boiling starters in a flask
« on: December 30, 2011, 09:38:37 AM »
There's a product called Ferm-Cap that comes in little 1 oz. dropper bottles. One drop in a 2L flask has kept my starters of that size from foaming out/boiling over.  Works well for preventing wort boil overs as well. Some folks have concerns about using it as it is silicone based. I've decided to only use it only as needed which for me ends up being only occasionally in starters boiled in the flask.  If I boil in a pot and monitor closely there's no need.

I use this in my starters and in my boil kettle.  One or two drops is all you need.

I use this stuff too and it works great.  And it doesn't have any affect on you, as my picture here indicates:



 ;D

reminds me of  Y2K
What a joke that was....but at least my capital budget for new equipment was huge.  Now it seems like I have to give a gallon of blood just to buy a new PC.

33 days and counting now...113 until my trip to Disney...173 until The BN Anniversary Party...174 until NHC.

This is going to be a good year ( except for that world-ending thing in December  :D )

In 2011, I brewed 9 batches ( last batch coming on Saturday...just under the wire ), for a total of approximately 45 gallons.  I also earned my first medal (a gold ) ever in the New England Regional Homebrew competition with an American Pale Ale ( actually the "medal" was made of wood :) ).  This was also the year I started really playing around with my water and additions.

For 2012, I plan to do a lot of lagers ( already have 4 planned with ingredients ready to go ).  It will also be my first time attending the National Homebrewers Conference in June ( as well as the Brewing Network Anniversary party -  woohoo!! )

Got my plane tickets yesterday.
With less rooms at this hotel than last year, are there overflow hotels near the conference, or would it require a cab ride?

Is it June yet?  ;D
