I have one of those pens.  I like that you can use them in all sorts of funny angles, like doing a crossword puzzle laying down, that would not work with a normal pen.

I had a similar pen when I was younger.  If you tipped it upside down, the women's clothes would turn into a bikini.  Wish I knew where it was today.

16 to 5?!  Really? 

It's going to be one of those seasons  :-\

At least they took 2 out of 3 from the Yankers!

Uh, maybe you should check with your doctor before getting back into something this quickly?

Chest pains are not a good thing...ever!!!  If you've been out of the game for a while, try easing back into it instead of pushing yourself to the limit.

I think I heard Sam Adams Long shot entries are due in May.  In the fall, there is a Northern New England Regional comp put on by Brew Free or Die and the Southern Maine homebrew clubs.

edit:  also the Greg Noonan Memorial Comp in VT has an entry deadline of April 29th.

I make enough mistakes sober.  I can't imagine how badly I'd mess up if I was drinking.


You never may help you.  Like that WKRP in Cinncinati episode where Johnny Fever's reaction time got faster the more he drank.

Got my shipping confirmation on Friday.

So will my Ninkasi be included in there, or will it be shipped seperately? :)

Darn it!!! I always forget about this one!

Usually one since I start my brewday around 8am.  Something about drink a beer before 12 noon just doesn't sit right with me ( unless it's Patriot's Day when the Sox are on at 11am )

20 minutes left in mash for Citra Pale Ale  :)
Wow, you start early.  Day off, huh?  Nice.  :) 

Yeah...I usually start my brewday at 8am or so.  I usually have my grains crushed and water ready the night before. 

Got cut back in hours at work so I get every other Friday off, but the silver lining is I get to brew every other Friday :)

I usually boil a quart or two of water and dump it in.  I then drain it out the spigot before I start my mash.

Make sure your mash is well stirred up and the temp has had a chance to stabilize.  Is you thermometer a probe type that your can watch from outside or a glass one that you check at the end?

On really cold days, I cover with a thick beach blanket to help insulate.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: AHA Governing Committee Election

All kinds of secret stuff!  ;)

The first rule of the Governing Committee is you don't talk about Governing Committee, huh?

"Order has shipped."

Wait...what?  Shipping already?  That would be awesome.

Do you think me beer will do better in the first round now that I will soon have this book?  :P
