NH just started to get distribution of North Coast so Old Raspy was the first 4 pack I picked up.

Probably Amarillo...dammit!!!

Additional info:

"Witnesses reported see a man with long hair sneaking around the crash scene and stuffing hops into his pockets.  When confronted, he yelled "I'm just being pragmatic" and ran off.  Officials are currently searching for this man.

Thanks to all Veterans and currently serving personnel.

I have 2 nephews in the service right now ( Marines and Air Force ).  I also have 2 brothers that were in the Navy.  They like to tell stories of their Navy days and what heroes they were...I believe they just scrapped barnacles off the ships  :D    One almost came home with a wife ( from Japan ), but then just came back with a motorcycle instead.

As I wandered through the store I KNEW what it smelled like. 

I bet Google's working on that as well.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Home Depot Chest Freezer Deal

Sorry I don't right now.  I can fit 4 cornies on the floor and 2 more on the hump ( when I build a taller collar ) if that helps.

Kegging and Bottling / Home Depot Chest Freezer Deal
« on: November 10, 2011, 09:33:14 AM »
I have this chest freezer as my kegerator with a wood collar and it works great.  For $168 and free shipping, it's a pretty good deal for a brand new CF.

I know you can get cheaper on Craiglist and such, but I'm always afraid of inheriting someone else's problems.

My TV viewing week used to be: ( beyond the sports events like Patriots or Red Sox games )

  The Shield

As the first 2 reach their finales, I never replaced them and I just stopped watching House altogether.  I rather enjoy not sitting in front of the TV anymore.  While SOA may be a great show, it will always disappoint me since it will end some day.

I do love me some Family Guy reruns though!  :D

Equipment and Software / Re: 70 quart cooler to big for 5 gallon batches?
« on: November 07, 2011, 09:52:04 AM »
I use a Coleman Xtreme 72qt for my mash tun and it works perfectly, even for lower gravity beers.  I don't think I've ever lost more than a degree or two in all my batches.  

Just make sure you get the blue one  ;)  ( FYI - this is a running joke out there )

edit: I only do 5 gallon batches

As for me, my user name is Skyler because that's how my first name is pronounced. Schuyler Alec Campbell, Esq., is my true and full name and title, which I imagine enough people could figure out if they bothered looking into it, but I hate how my first name is spelled, and so I use the easier spelling whenever I have a chance.

Maybe you could find someone to help you "legally" change your name   ;D

Equipment and Software / Re: Blichmann Beer Gun
« on: November 03, 2011, 11:35:41 AM »
I have the BBG and I love it. I use to dread bottling with my bottle filler but now with the beer gun I actually look forward to bottling. It's easy and effortless to use and very easy to clean. It's worth every penny plus some. Like you said, it's a one handed operation which makes life easy.  :)

If you are bottling different beers, do you break it down and clean it between beers or do you just run some cleaner/sanitizer through it?

I have the beergun but find it to be a hassle if I'm bottling just a couple bottles of a couple beers to sent to comps.

[I do think it's goofy when people call up the Brewing Network and use there "screen" name... "Hi this is Butsniffer from the forum..."  It sounds so ridiculous.

But that is how we refer to people in the BN Army.  I've run into people at festivals wearing the colors and don't think I ever got their "real" names.  A lot of the BN forum names go along with the personalities of the BN army, so much that we forget what their real names are.  Who the hell would want to talk to Matt...but Blober Glawp is a different story  :D

I think buttsniffer was banned for life...for obvious reasons.  ;D

I don't know.. I like having an alias. I dare you to find out who I am! :)
I always thought your forum picture looks like Kevin Smith.

My alias represents my love of two things, Star Wars and dark beer, mostly stouts.

I also like Abba but I thought "dancingqueen" would be a little odd for a forum name  :D

Maybe some of us are in hiding from the governement for a crime we didn't commit.

So you can't take anyone serious unless you know their name, even if the information they give is sound?  I've had my first name and last initial in for over a year when someone else asked about this...can't guarantee the whole not acting like an ass thing however  ;D
