Does it count if you stare at your own?  :D

Is it bad to start force carbonating before letting it settle 24 hours?   I add it to the keg, rack on top of it, seal and pressurize the lid, shake a bit, then hook it up to start carbonating.

Did you see this on the Mr. Malty site as well?

Got 5 out of 10.  I took what seemed like an obviuos Qadaffy answer and answered Sheen.

Yes, I've heard it's out and haven't seen it as of yet. Perhaps it takes a while to get across the country. It will get here sooner than later. I'm looking forward to it.

Strange...we've had it in NH for almost a month now.  I have 2 in my fridge at home but due to that pesky stomach bug, I haven't been in the mood to try it yet.

Snow on Friday.  Cleaned Driveway.
Snow on Saturday night.  Cleaned driveway.
Freezing rain, sleet, then changing to all rain today.  Well, at least I won't have to clean the driveway.

Now if we could just can at home easily, think about how much easier it would be to send beer into competition.

I like cans  ;)  You can stack them in your fridge, effectively doubling the storage capacity.

Homebrew Competitions / NHC Region Entries Tally
« on: February 25, 2011, 09:48:01 AM »
Probably a question for Janis, but is there any way to tell how many paid entries have been entered in a region at a particular time?  I would be looking for total entries per region, not in a specific category.

This is not an attempt to get through 1st round by sending to a region with less entries.  I'm not sure how many entries I will have ready until it gets closer to the closing date.  If something happens in my tight brewing schedule to screw things up ( family, weather, setting myself on fire during a brewday ), I'd rather not take an entry spot if it isn't needed.

If this can't be done, I'm definately ok with that.

Good luck to all in the comp.

He's lost weight recently due to a new diet for his kidneys. He used to be ~26.

His sister lost weight too, she's down to 13 from 17.

Think that happens as they get older (14)

Care to share that diet?  I could afford to lose a few pounds.

Snowing in NH right now but it's going to change over to sleet, freezing rain, and possibly rain today.  Oh well...electricity is overrated.  But after December 2008 and February 2010, any power outage less than a day is just a blip.

No Campaign promises this year...I'm still waiting for that beer Drew was going to buy everyone if they voted for him.  :)

Good luck to all the candidates.  I wonder if Justin at The Brewing Network will have everyone on to state their platform like last year?  Some of these people I'm familiar with but some I'm not and would like to hear them live rather than a prepared bio.

Hope to be doing Green Flash West Coast IPA on Sunday, but there may be snow in the forecast...not that I haven't brewed in the snow before.

Nice day today in NH.  Sunny with a few high clouds, highs going to about 40F.

Tonight we are supposed to get snow, changing to sleet and freezing rain by the morning commute ( yippee ) and possbily changing to rain.  Only expecting about 1-3 inches of snow, but it will be that "OH MY #$%^@## BACK" kinda snow to shovel.

Equipment and Software / Re: New Brew Kettle
« on: February 24, 2011, 09:34:32 AM »
I've always wondered how those kettles are.  Is the SS pretty solid? 

I too was doing 7 gallons in a 7.5 gallon kettle, but ungraded to a 10 gallon Megapot.  Even now it's still pretty close to the top ( boiling 8-9 gallons of wort to end up with 6 ), but a few drops of Fermcap-S puts my mind at ease a bit.
