Woohoo!!  Usually only get that every other year.

Gary...when I win will you tell my wife she can't come.  She's not a beer drinker and it seems wrong to bring her :)

Thank you AHA!!!

It doesn't seem like the lifetime option is available online.  You may need to call the number at the bottom of the site I listed above.

I would like to suggest that TT2 be an opt in service, rather than just automatic.  This may give you some accurate numbers as to how many really want this service.

I actually dropped TT before the term date because I've found the forum much more useful.

Just make sure you get the blue one.

I love this setup.  I actually just cut my braid because it was too great.

These are the instructions that I used:

Yup, TT2 is in progress and mostly held up by real life.

No brushes ever on BB.  I usually do an extended Oxiclean ( or PBW ) soak and then rinse them out thoroughly to clean them.

Others have stated that they have used BB for extended periods of time without any oxidation issues.  The longest I've gone has been 4 problems.

I use the Better Bottles with the carboy cap but I've never done the siphon.  I've seen people put a rubber o-ring on the neck to make the carboy cap sit tighter, as well as using packing tape.

In my opinion, the dry tap and all the other accessories for the BB are just too expensive ( spigot, racking arm, ported BB, etc. ).

Great news Frank.  Thanks for the updates.

I use beersmith which calculates the amount of calories per pint.  Since you already have Promash there is no reason to purchase another brewing software.  I would use the link provided by svejk.

Although this may be a good time to move over to Beersmith.  I own both and find BS to be much easier to use.  I don't think Promash has been updated for a while, and Brad Smith is working on a the next version of BS ( as well as putting out a book of his Beersmith Blog ).

Or you could just say Beer is good for and forget the whole calorie things altogether :)

I haven't started my copy yet, but can't figure out why the BA and BN can't come up with a better deal for either us (members) or the LHBS.  My LHBS suggested I check out pricing on when I asked if he was getting it in, as that was where he got stock for the store.  I got "yeast..." and "brewing with wheat" together on Amazon for $25 w/ free shipping. 

The BN has a markup to help support their programming since they don't require any money for their content ( although you can donate monthly, which I do ).  They also have signed copies.  I bought mine from The Brewing Network store to support what they are doing.
