did you try the Patriot Homebrew contest winner?

I did during preseason.  Not bad, but I would have preferred a bit more smoke to it.  I had a hard time picking it out.

Ok...dumb question number 1:

Based on what you are saying above, can I carbonate all the beer to the same pressure ( 11 psi, beer at 40F giving approx. 2.4 volumes ) and then adjust the line length to the appropriate style?  So if I want my IPA at 2.4 volumes, I'd probably use a 5' line.  But for my mild, I may want 1.7 volumes, so I would install a longer line to lower the co2?

I've been using Fourquare because my son thinks it's cool to check in to places and become mayor.  I'm curious what everyone uses, if one is better than the other, or if you even care.

Since we're all volunteers maintaining this site, I can tell you that it's not a priority for me!

But my alter-egos keep taunting me then delete their posts so I can't prove it...

Or is this some AHA conspiracy to overinflate the forum numbers, like when the police multiply drug busts by a factor of 5 when estimating street values....hmmmm..

...your brother emails you to say he found some wild hops growing when he was scouting for archery season and you feel like Jed Clampett when he struck oil with his shotgun.

I registered back in November 2009.  When I search out my login name, there are 3 entries for me, 2 of which are the same login name but two distinct entries.  They were both created on 3/22/10.  So maybe it's just not me but some others who have mulitple entries but don't know it.

For the admins, the 2 accounts are 2933 and 2934, both under the name "stevo155".  My account 202, under "thedarkside" is the one I use.  Have no idea what happened in March 2010 ( can barely remember yesterday ).

If I wanted to Dry Mouse my pale ale, how many dead mice would you suggest? :)

Had one die in my better bottle once.  Hot PBW soak, rinse, another hot PBW soak and rinse over several days.  All better after that.

Not yet, but after he gets into his new space I bet he expands a bit.

I put a 2 x 6 on my chest freezer and kegs on the hump miss by an inch or two, but it's only 7.2 cu ft so you may be ok.

Woohoo.  If you're building a collar, just make sure it is tall enough so you can put kegs on the compressor hump. 

Now you'll be thinking about how you can run a glycol system from the basement up to the recliner for football games! :)
