General Homebrew Discussion / Re: New website format
« on: December 18, 2013, 10:56:50 PM »
The new format on the main site looks cool. But I miss the longer list of most recent posts the old site had.

this. exactly.  in fact my main complaint with the old format is that it had the most recent posts and not the most recent topics.  (out of ten posts 5-6 would be all on one topic)  i like this new one with recent topics i would like to see like the ten most recent topics

you could just have a tap with something horrible in it and hide the good homebrew. 

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Another thread about plastic buckets (sorry)
« on: December 04, 2013, 07:06:41 PM »
The bakery departments at Costco/ Sam's clubs get their icing in  2 and 5 gallon food grade buckets. They will let you have them and they work great for storing grains as well as fermenting beer. FREE

i use some of these. also have 3.5 gallon buckets that i get from a specialty olive oil, basalmic place

Yeah I was pretty surprised about the change too.  I'll probably test it again next year to see if it's more consistent  with the results I just got.

i live in naperville and i think mine is pretty close to 2013.  i have the old ones some where and can compare.  i haven't really been checking them very closely

Beer Recipes / Re: Hoppy Pilsner..... Maybe?

if it is not so much the aroma you are after i would consider FWH to maybe get that higher hop flavor without the bite.

So I guess I'll give your ticket for the HOF induction ceremony for Brady and Belichick to someone else, huh Tom.
Absolutely.  I would turn that down if it was a fully paid for trip, unless I was allowed to punch Belichick in the jimmies.  I have nothing against Brady, except that he is an overrated whiner. :)

For someone who hates the Patriots so much, you really don't talk about anything else.
I don't really hate the Pats, just their cheating coach who got a slap on the wrist instead of a nut punch for it. ;)

Best Head coach and Quarterback combo ever!!  EVER!!
I didn't know they had legalized weed for recreational use in NH too!!  Congratulations! ;D

i am not a bellichunk fan.  he took a playoff team cleveland browns and made them so bad they had to leave cleveland in one season.  that only happens if you deliberately tank. just my buck-02

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: How long is too long?
« on: November 07, 2013, 05:13:49 PM »
i brew almost only lagers, i almost never see airlock activity or krausen to any degree as long as i keep my temps cold.   after about 3 weeks in the bucket i can see a little ring around the edge.

The Pub / Re: Any statisticians here?
« on: November 05, 2013, 06:11:10 PM »

87.6% of all statistics are made up right on the spot.
can we assume then that 13.4% of the statistics then are factual?

no, they are just made up at a later date

about 3/4 x ID squared  times the length.   8)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: The cheap yeast
« on: November 04, 2013, 03:40:45 PM »
i made starter out of a vial of lager yeast (i have pictures somewhere of the type) that was over a year old when i opened it.  was no issue
