See the bottom of the kettle?

This thing is like a black hole...even light cannot escape.

Just so you didn't think I wussed out:



Efficiency really took a hit on this one.  Added some DME and plan to boil a bit long to get close.

 ;D Yeah Right!!!  ;D  - Not in a million %#$@%%^ years.

Doing a big beer on Friday.  Kate the Great clone from the Portmsouth Brewery.  RIS with OG of 1.104.  The grain bill ( for 5 gallons ) is about 25lbs....my first "real" test for my mash tun ( Coleman Xtreme 72qt - Blue of course ).  I have a nice big amount of yeast slurry I pulled off of a pale ale last night in the fridge.  In a few weeks, it will be aging in a keg with port soaked oak spirals.

Can't wait to see this one rockin' the top of the fermenter!!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

If you contract with someone to make a sword, don't pay them 1/10 the promised price.

The Six-Fingered man found this out the hard way.  ;D

[Anyway, I hate the J-E-T-S and can't tolerate their fans so congrats Denver and Tebow!  ;D

As much as I respect what he does, I definately cannot stand Fireman Ed.  It was great on Sunday.  He was getting the crowd all riled up but in the 4th quarter, he had that look of shock on his face.   :D

I think Tebow will have multiple Super Bowl rings at the end of his career.

I wonder how much that will cost him on Ebay... ;D

I don't actually pay too much attention to him, but I will when they play the Pats in December.  Until then, go Broncos and beat the Jets!!!

The only reason I didn;t keep the BS going is because Blatz is one of my oldest and truest invisible friends.  :P

If I was a Jags fan, I'd be invisible too  :P

( ok...cue the "Wah! The Patriots are cheater posts.  Wah!! )  ;D

Even better, I found out how to reprogram one of the buttons into a 30 second skip - jumping over commercials has never been so easy. ;D  When they're not going hurry up, you can even skip from the end of one play to the beginning of the next and not miss much.

I still like the manual scan...you never know when a Go Daddy commercial might pop up  :o

I don't think I've started watching a game at kickoff time ( unless I am there ) in the past 6-7 years.  I love my Tivo!!

Even with their beat up and deficient secondary, the Patriots still spanked the Jets on national TV.  That just made Monday a little bit brighter!!!!  8)

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
« on: November 10, 2011, 09:40:27 AM »
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.
