One little patch of snow left on my yard.  Went out yesterday to look at my hops and the shoots are starting to appear just under the surface.

NOW tomorrow we are expected to get 8-14" of snow!!!  Where's the "middle finger" emoticon?  ;)

Of course having the local brew pub on the first floor under the theater is always a must stop before or after.  

We have Chunky's theaters around us where you watch the movie from a table, order dinner and of course, have a few beverages.  I'm not too sure on the beer selection at these places...may have to have a grown-ups night to check it out.

I still go to the movies frequently, especially to see stuff like the superhero movies with my son ( a little male bonding time ).  And there's no way I'm going to wait months to see Harry Potter on blu ray.

There is a movie theater near me where tickets are $3.50 all the time.  It's a pretty clean theater and the movies are in between new releases and DVD/BluRay release dates.  And of course the IMAX stuff kicks ASS!!!

If people were really sick of all the remakes they would stop going to the theater.... they keep making them cause people keep going...little sheep who need to be constantly entertained by some kind of electronic device...

Like if people would stop drinking s***ty beer, Budweiser ( InBev ) would go out of business and not be able to buy craft breweries.

Just to reiterate my previous post, the 1989 Batman was good...everything after that sucked until they rebooted.  I didn't think another reboot was in order since they left The Dark Knight wide open for another installment.

So when's the reboot of Debbie Does Dallas coming?

The reboots of the Hulk and Batman were welcome.  The first Hulk sucked and Batman was getting too F$%#$ing ridiculous after the first movie.  Val Kilmer and George Clooney....are you kidding me?
I didn't know they were doing a 3rd Hulk.  Are you sure this isn't part of the Avengers movie they've been building up to ( Ironman, Hulk, Thor, Captain America )?

I'm not sure I'd like a Logan's Run remake...too many fond memories as a kid to have it destroyed by "modern" cinema.

They should make the Superman movie based on the Saturday Night Live skit that asked "what if Superman landed in 1938 Germany?"  Uberman...funny stuff.

And there's no way I would have gotten this real-time info from TechTalk.  Thank you, forum.

Not beer, but have you been to the Bubbleroom out on Captiva?  I love that place.  Decent food and awesome Red Velvet Cake!!!

Ah, I get it now.  You're listing the folks in the original pic and not the one in this post.  Was driving me crazy trying to find the sixth guy in that pic :)

I was scary to think that the 3rd guy from the left was their Governor.  ;)

Another Beersmith ( and former Promash ) user here.  If you do go with Beersmith, you may want to ask them what the policy is on upgrading.  He is due to release a new version soon ( I hope ) and it would suck if you had to pay to upgrade shortly after paying for the current version.

« on: March 29, 2011, 08:04:47 AM »
I always check my boil before adding late addition hops to see if I'm going to be close on my numbers.  Based on the first 30-60 minutes, I can just what the rest of my boil will be like.  So if i have a 15 minute hop addition and my numbers gravity is still a little low, I'll add some time to the boil to raise it up and then add my 15 minute hops based on the new boil time.

If I add an extra 15 minutes to the boil, the bittering hop additions aren't going to be affected too much.  But if I have to add extra time at the end of the boil, my 15 minutes hops now start to become 30-45 minutes hops.

I'm probably not explaining it too clearly...I'm at work, have about 10 things going through my head...and I'm STARVING!!!  1 hour to lunch.

I find them invaluable.  They are great for taking readings during the boil to see if I'm going to hit my target.  I actually haven't used my hydrometer since I got it.

For checking fermenting wort, need to make an adjustment.  Most ( if not all ) brewing software has a function for this or there's a spreadsheet on that will do the calculation for you.

You can buy a refractometer on ebay for about $25-$30 I believe.  That's where I got mine.  Calibrate it with distilled water and you're ready to go.
