Pliny also used to have Chinook for bittering, but as they switched to hop extracts, Vinny has tweaked the homebrew recipe to use Columbus hops (supposedly more similar to the extracts). That aside, I still use part Chinook for bittering.

The only homebrew shop they were ever associated is one in Maryland. Hopefully they will still allow full pallet orders, otherwise I'll have to incoorperate my homebrew name
crab boils are awesome, don't know if they are ethnic either. still good though.
That is a beautiful sight. I love blue crabs. I used to go crabbing throughout the summer when I was younger. I really miss it. Crabbing is alot of fun and very rewarding. Do you use beer to steam them?
I love my auto siphon. Can't see why everyone doesn't have one.
I'm curious how you guys who brew 10+ gallon batches deal with creating enough yeast. I'm toying with the idea of upgrading my capacity to handle 10 gallon batches, but I am a little unsure about how I should handle my starters. For example, when I'm building up yeast for a typical 5 gallon lager batch, I've got a 4 liter starter on a stir plate (in a 5 liter flask), and I feel like that's _barely_ enough yeast.
But they did say, "Well sir... you CAN have it independently tested. That will of course be at your own expense. But we can assure you that the City of Altoona has THE best water in central PA".
