I just watched Star Trek Enterprise - In a Mirror, Darkly parts 1 & 2

Is Linda Park (Hoshi) hot as a bad girl or what?!  Yow!!

I had it on my laptop while I stepped up three 1.5L mead yeast starters.  They were bubbling even before I got the yeast in...  ;)

I watch Voyager - Warlord  last night.  Kes as a bad girl!!!  Star Trek series should have the women dress in bblack leather at least once!

Very windy and rainy in New Hampshire yesterday, but it did blow the rest of my leaves onto the neighbor's property so there's that.  Back into the low-mid 40's and mostly sunny the rest of the week.  Snow showers predicted for Monday.  Here comes winter.

I guess the real question is: do late mouse additions contribute more to the aroma?

Definately aroma and I can tell you it doesn't fade quickly ( why do those little bastards always die in the walls!!! )

Their prices are at least twice what I was paying at the brewpub down the road(40 miles) but the new brewer there has no love for homebrewers and will not let us piggyback on his malt orders like the 3 previous brewers would.  After 10 years of buying ultra cheap malt I may have to pay retail again.  Last year I bought 4 sacks, 210 pounds and paid a total of $102.  I should have bought 400 pounds.

A brewpub brewer with no love for homebrewers?  I think I would find a new place to take my business.  Was this person a homebrewer at one time I wonder?

I'd like to see an "About Us" section on their website...unless I'm totally missing it. 

Even with free shipping, prices are a little higher than I get at North Country ( at least as long as they are still willing to sell to me ).  Nice to have options though.

Anyone yet wonder if this is their wife?

Some ideas:

  AHA membership if he doesn't have one
  Several homebrewing books ( Designing Great Beers, Yeast, Brew Like a Monk )
  Some special glassware for his homebrew
  Custom Tap handles for kegerator
  Custom Mash Paddle
  Misc items for man cave/brew house ( i.e. mirror, lights, brewing posters )

Don't know if it matters, but I am planning on having 4 taps with an APA, an American Amber, and an English Bitter for house ales and the last tap being for whatever else catches my fancy.

Assuming you only have one tank and regulator, the only issue here is if the other style needs to be carbonated at a different volume ( i.e. Trippel ).  I have mine set at 12psi at 40F which puts me around 2.5 volumes for everything, but I can live with that.

To Phillamb, the OP...Thanks A Lot!!!!  I just found out it works on my droid.  Now I'll get no work done :)

Funny I was having trouble getting it to work last night on my Win7 laptop.  Couldn't get it to run on the Playstation either.

P.S. All sarcasm aside...thanks for the link!

I setup a personal UPS account, print my label at home, and bring the box into the office for the daily UPS issues ever.

The Sunday Sessions are 3-4 hours in length...let's hope no one's drive is that long.

I thought it was a bore.  And yes, Sam seems a bit full of himself.  But to give you some perspective, probably not as much as Jamil Z.

Do you know Jamil??

+100 Denny!!

Watched it last night ( have a Season Pass on Tivo ).  I enjoyed it very much.  Being it was the first episode, I can see where it could be a little DFH-centric.  Sam seems like a cool guy ( he is from New England afterall ) and even the rapping was funny ( though I don't want to see it every week ).

I'm definately looking forward to the next episode.

I would suggest a rootkit scan.  Some virus and malware scanner won't pick up a rootkit.

If this is a windows systems, you could use this:

Bitdefender also make a rootkit scanner, and I believe the new AVG antivirus software has rootkit scanning ability. 

See if that finds anything.  Good luck.
