Agreed with the above posts.  :o

Right now I am so happy that the PENS traded James Neal in return for Patrik Hornquist. Horny scored the CUP winning goal tonight as the Pittsburgh Penguins became​ the first team in 19 years to defend their Stanley Cup. Yes, the CUP goes to spend the summer with the Penguins for the second summer in a row. Hell Yeah PENS! On a side note, the playoffs are over and the cheesy 70's playoff stache is gone.
Some drinks were enjoyed along the way including some great local cans and a bottle of Balvenie Caribbean Cask Scotch. Another note, Sidney Crosby wins the Conn Smythe trophy, as the NHL playoff MVP, for the third time

Thanks, I think it's my best iteration to date.  I don't know if it was because I used a repitch or something else, but I got more and better character out of the 3787 than usual.

Pils and sugar?  Pils, pale ale malt, and sugar?

Did I read right that this was written in September of 2015?

Yeah, strange. It was posted on Stan H's recent blog postings. Interesting article anyway.

Personally, I don't go over 2.8 volumes for standard bottles in bottle conditioning. If I target above that, it's gotta be thicker Belgian bottles I've saved (I have loads).

I played poker against him in a hotel room at MacWorld NY in either 2000 or 2001. He sucked at that too.

Edit: Wil Wheaton, the guy, is by all accounts awesome. I meant Wesley Crusher sucked, and also that Wil Wheaton was bad at poker.

The water makes me jealous.

What I have to add is the yeast. I Ssume you are using one of the Czech brewing strains. At PU they pitch darned cold and let it rise. Initial pitch is at 39F.

Whoa. Very cold.

iMO Tapatalk is the best way to post pictures but sucks for everything else.
The web version of the forum is way better.

Yep. I've debated the merits of both. For me, I deleted tapatalk and use Photobucket for pics. A little more work for pics but everything else is smoother IMO. Each his own.

Just about to finish a Grissette, also going to be doing a SMaSH sometime this weekend. Getting lots of help from the brew dog!

Great brew dog! Here's my brew dog, Jack. A Black Lab/German Shorthaired Pointer mix. I've had dogs all my life and he's the best dog I've ever seen - smart, funny as hell, sweet, and a little ornery. :) Dogs rock.

Edit - The damn dog groomer loves to put ties on the dogs after they're done. My wife had to snap a pic.

I've never used Tapatalk. I just use the regular web connection...even on my phone.

Same here, Martin.

For sure. I'm a Trek nerd. Not Con nerdish, just a big fan. Still prefer the original, though.

Haha!  OK.  I'll do my best to abide by Wheaton's Law.  I assume Will Wheaton of Big Bang fame.

Yep, same guy.  ;D
