The Pub / Re: Jumping Jehoshaphat - I own a house!
« on: October 08, 2010, 10:17:52 AM »
My partner and I keep going back and forth over what to do with the space. We've talked about renting it out, she's dreamed of turning it into a studio for her aromatherapy efforts. I'm not set on the idea of turning it into a brewery/bar because I will have the whole of the garage as the brewery/bar.

Seems like they would work well together.  A little aromatherapy and relax at the bar with an award winning homebrew.  Or two...or Three...hmm I see your point.

You can get them online here...unfortunately it doesn't look like there are any stores in Colorado that carry them.

Congrats Drew.  Don't get discouraged with the list.  I'm still working on my list for my last house I sold 5 years ago :)

So if you hit the lottery next week and pay off your mortgage, will that beer be ready to drink.

Just started reading mine ( signed copy bought on The Brewing Network ) ***shameless plug***

So far, it's a good read.  Will definately go into the library with "How to Brew", "Brewing Classic Styles", and "Designing Great Beers ".

Does anyone else think it's awesome that we have a three page thread dedicated to back scratchers? Cause I think it just rocks!!  ;D

Yeah...certain advocates of beer  ;) would have locked this thread for being inappropriate :)

The hotel was announced around Oct 31 last year.  Keep checking here for details.  

I found out about the hotel last year because I followed Mr. Malty ( Jamil Zanisheff ) on twitter.  I don't think this forum was live until November.  I bet it will be on here as soon as it is announced.

Tickets were definately announced later than that.

I have the same cooler but have not seen this.  I've done about 20 5 gallon batches in it so far. 

When not in use, where is it stored?  In direct sunlight or really hot location?

Wishing you the very quickest recovery, Babalu.

I have to say that this really gets me thinking about the fact that during the warmer months I get bit by mosquitoes on almost a  daily basis.

I never go out without bug screen these days.  We've had a few sad cases here in NH with EEE and West Nile in the past few years.  And Babalu's area of Massachusetts has been dealing with this stuff for 10+ years.

I bought a raffle ticket on Homebrewtalk yesterday and he had a great day...I may need to go buy a few more!!

Best wishes to Jeff for a speedy and full recovery!!!

...and keep your posts up.  8)

Once you get your posts up, keep them up.

I forget...does my post count mean I don't have a job or I'm just sneaky?  It's so confusing.

Going for the Lagunitas Brown Shugga clone this weekend.

The morebeer wired ranco is great.  It is wired with an actual outlet box, not just power cords wired in.  I use a fermwrap taped to the inside of the chest freezer wall with electrical tape to provide the heat.

I've escaped the Florida heat for a week and am now in New Hampshire, where the weather is nice and cool and the trees are turning some pretty garishly bright colors.  Ahh.....Climate Change!

80 degrees today...enjoy the crisp New Hampshire fall weather :)
