Unless you really used some elbow grease, one won't fit on the other type.

Search for hop stopper.  Don't recirc; cold break can clog screens and you don't need to with a plate chiller's efficiency

Delivered today successfully.  So just use the address as-is and ignore the warning.

You need a smaller hose.

(If I had a nickel for every time I've heard that...)

Yeah, that's an option.  I just want to make sure there isn't a different zip code or some other small change that's required to get them to deliver correctly.

My Seal-a-meal by Rival promptly failed after a couple uses. I've had it's replacement (Foodsaver) for 5 years now.

I love my Foodsaver...I bought it in 1991 (or thereabouts) and have used it for both food and brewing stuff. It still pulls as good a vacuum as ever.  I've had sero issues with it. The only maintenance I've had to perform is to run an ounce or two of a warm, diluted vinegar solution through it to clean it.  One of the best appliance purchases I've ever made.

This is exactly what I was worried about and why I want a FoodSaver. I would rather not buy it twice. As my mom says, only rich people can afford to buy cheap things.

On the other hand, everything is made in China these days and a higher price doesn't necessarily mean quality.  You're going to find bad reviews for almost everything out there if you search for it.  It's cheaper for the manufacturers to offer better warranties and replace lemons than to build something that lasts.

Homebrew Competitions / NHC final round shipping address
« on: June 04, 2013, 09:22:12 AM »
The shipping address for final round entries isn't recognized by UPS or FedEx.  Any ideas?

I've had it for 2 years now.  You can buy 4 of them for the price of a fancy Foodsaver, so I wasn't too concerned about trying it out.

I grabbed this one when it was on sale along with some seal-a-meal plastic rolls.  If you're doing a lot of food, you might want something more full featured, but it works fine for what I want.

Will be there.  Club night table and all.  Look for "Cross Street Irregulars".

Wow, that's surprising.  I thought the only response to your smear campaign would be to sue you for defamation!

This is why we can't have nice things hot coffee.

The legal system, like politics and the corporate world, is a necessary part of society.  Unfortunately, in practice they all favor the person with the most money. 

It's also designed specifically to grow the influence of the system itself, instead of being a means to an end.  But lawyers aren't the first to abuse their power.

Ha.  Tell the natives in the Caribbean who grow that stuff that their fruit is now the domain of the most WASPy millionaire out there.
