Nah...I have a six tap chest freezer kegerator.  I just thought it was funny it is on sale at Home Depot.

You need to add an end square bracket to the image "]"

I copy the link to view it...nice cold break layer.  I do this with lagers and cannot believe how much cold break there is the next day I transfer.  Sometime I have a hard time getting 5.5 gallons transferred even when I've filled my better bottle to almost the top from the kettle.

Can y'all do that to the 49ers next weekend?


No problem.  I'll send Bill and Tom a text right now.  ;D

If they could get the laws fixed, Austin wouldn't be a bad place.  I heard the barbeque and music are good there.

Yeah, I hear they have both kinds...Country and Western  ;D

Grand Rapids beat out several cities for the event, including Austin, Texas, which was knocked out by strict liquor-control laws that prevented further consideration.

Looks like the Texans have some work to do.

I saw this a couple months ago.  The venue actually had it listed on their events page.  I didn't want to be the one to let that cat out... ;D

Looking forward to this one too!

Brewing with Chris White at the White Labs 5,000 Vial Redemption Extravaganza in Norfolk, VA!

I'm only 4985 vials away from this  ;D ( not a lot of place in the Northeast sell WL yeast )

I'm brewing a Munich Helles on Sunday starting at 6am so I can fit it in around other events ( mostly kid related, cub scouts, etc ).

Thankfully the Pats are playing Monday night this week.

i thought the recent post page was gone. i havent been able to find it for some time
Scroll to the bottom of the "home" page, just above the "users on line within the last 15 minutes".

Never knew it was there...but then I use an RSS feed to view all new posts in the forum.

Also, 92 guests viewing the forum?  Wouldn't it be nice if they registered and joined the discussion?  I'm sure some of them are bots, but it couldn't be everyone, could it?

Dean, what happened to make you this passionate against the Vittles Vault?  Did grain spoil on you?  I've had a good experience with mine thus far.


Same here.  I have 1 for 2-row and 1 for pilsner.  I will probably pick up another for Maris Otter in the future.  Mine seal up perfectly and nothing has eaten through them yet ( although they did eat through a bag of yeast nutrient  >:().  I also like that I can store a sack in 1 container rather than 5 or 6 buckets.  You can usually find them cheap when there are deals at the pet stores.

It's not like the guy is calling his place "Mc Donald's Hamburgers" and putting a clown and golden arches on his building!
Look... me and the McDonald's people got this little misunderstanding. See, they're McDonald's... I'm McDowell's. They got the Golden Arches, mine is the Golden Arcs. They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick. We both got two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but their buns have sesame seeds. My buns have no seeds.
This is exactly the first thing that popped in my mind when I read that line in his post  ;D

Tony is great.  Do you think the winner will be able to brew with him?

Don't you mean "Tony is GGGRRREEEAAATTT"

I assume this is all stout styles, as long as they are under 8%?

And for extra defense, set up some traps near where you store your grains.  Or better yet, set them near where they may be entering the area.  We've used these to get rid of any mice that like to enter our garage during the winter:

These traps are more snapping my fingers on the old style traps  :o.  Problem is I forget about them sometimes and when I go to check them, they have a dried on mouse.  Much easier to dump them when they're fresh.

And the plug in pest repellers don't do squat!
