Since you like Amarillo already and American Wheat was mentioned...
How about a Gumballhead Clone?

Most of the time they are like bread cause we are usually using left over bread dough to make them. That above pizza is made with leftover pita bread dough. Then we top it with whatever we have.

Pizza is a great way to get rid of leftovers!

I'm hoping for more specific links if possible.  Those sites overwhelm me w/ all the stuff they have

No relation whatsoever, just where I like to shop.

All Things Food / Re: What kind of beer would you serve with BBQ Chicken?
« on: November 09, 2009, 07:50:24 AM »
Funny, I was thinking the other way around. If you go spicy BBQ to be able to cool the fire with something more malty. And if you were on the sweeter side (say honey or molases sauce) then you counter that with an IPA.  That's assuming there's a choice, I just serve whatever is on tap.(Choice of 1 beer, 1 cider usually).

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Why the preference for Ball Lock?
« on: November 09, 2009, 07:26:54 AM »
I use ball lock because I got on a board full of people adamant that this was the way to go. More people sell them, and therefore parts and connectors for them too. And since I've never even seen a pinlock, I don't know what I'm missing and am happy with what I have.

I wonder how decanted liquid from a starter would work?

Decanted starter sounds fine It's just not tripple hopped like my flat miller beer. :D
It's flat, it's beer, has more flavor than water. Go for it.

Woody - even with the big stone you will probably be making two pizzas. Unless your kids are girls.

Equipment and Software / Re: RO system Qs
« on: November 07, 2009, 11:52:44 AM »
Is the shock cost or eco related? Because when you're not brewing, it's not pumping water down the drain. So there's no cost and no waste. You could divert the waste water (which is still clean water) to use for cleanup.Put a "T" in there to fill up carboys or buckets for cleaning water.
And maybe you'll need to collect the RO water over a couple of days to get the required quantity; if the 50 gallon per day system turns out to be too expensive. Don't forget you'd need a 50 gallon bladder tank too if you were to wait right up until you needed it.

All Things Food / Re: Post your chili recipes
« on: November 07, 2009, 10:48:59 AM »
All in! It may not be "official" chilli but it tastes good. We've also gone to the crock pot method. Saute the onions, brown the meat, dump it all in a crockpot with tomatoes, beans and spices come back 6-8 hours later. Cheese, sourcream, and a dash of hotsauce.

Equipment and Software / Re: Magnetic VS Peristaltic
« on: November 07, 2009, 10:26:28 AM »
The peristaltic can go up to 2.3 litres per minute.It's a Cole-Parmer Masterflex - off ebay for less than the cost of a March pump. So it's slower, but can prime itself and even sit on a shelf above all the kettles.The tubing isn't much worse than others options. You would use silicone, or Tygon. It's variable speed, I can also use it for racking wine and stuff if I really wanted to.

The magnetic pumps I grabbed do about 5 gpm and can take water up to just below boiling, so I wouldn't use it to pump finished wort. They were new, and a really good deal, so now I have a decision to make. 2 of these pumps came out less than a March Pump.

Before you say it, yes I have spent more than the cost of a March pump by now.  ::)
I liked the self priming aspect of the perstaltic - the cheap mag drives are half the cost of the peristaltic.
I will either resell the pumps I don't use - or put together another system and list it on craigslist.

Equipment and Software / Magnetic VS Peristaltic
« on: November 06, 2009, 09:01:20 PM »
Through indecision, I happen to have both. I know the magnetic is more popular, but I think it's more due to cost. So, I'm soliciting opinions. If you could have either - and cost is not the deciding factor which route would you go?

If you post something to far over the line, the thread will get driven into the ground by people arguing.



Will Not!!!  ;)

Might get more interesting over the weekend. As people drink more of their homebrew, while reading about homebrew and maybe feeling a little plucky. We'll see.

« on: November 06, 2009, 02:33:12 PM »
Time to upgrade I guess. I've got a 20' 3/8" with a $20 pond pump to recirculate . Takes forever compared to the rest of you guys.

Other Fermentables / Re: Rescue My Cider
« on: November 06, 2009, 01:00:26 PM »
Probably because technically speaking it would no longer be cider by the time that happens.  You would then have an apple wine.   ;)

What's the crossover point from cider to wine? If you say alcohol, you can keep feeding apple juice until the yeast max out and then start coming back down via juice additions. Not sure what that would do to flavor or stability of the drink - but now I'm just curious.
