The Pub / Re: The OFFICIAL AHA 4M's NFL BULL SH$%^&TER'S THREAD!

It's sad that we have to rely on Eli Manning as the last line of defense now.  Every year another Brady superbowl win is like the threat of nuclear annihilation that hung over us during the cold war.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Cold Yeast in a starter

Nothing wrong with that.  Pitching yeast cold prevents it from starting to use its reserves before they're needed.  Keep doing it!

All Grain Brewing / Re: Humdinger Attenuation Issue
« on: January 25, 2012, 02:02:11 PM »
I did a Hochkurz decoction on my last German pils, and the attenuation was good but not excessive.  The main mash spent 30 minutes at 144 before pulling about 1/3 of it for a (relatively) thick decoction.  I'd say there was a 30 minute ramp up time and a 20 minute boil for the decoction.  It was then returned to the mash for 30 minutes at 158.  OG 1.051, FG 1.011 using a large starter of WLP830.

The original beers that you had a problem with were mashed at 150, so I don't think your latest issue is entirely due to the decoction.

Another thing I learned from this thread is that there's a whole subculture of girls in bikini tops shooting bows...

Not sure what a dead old rich lady has to do with it, although I know you New Englanders love your American "royalty" (see: bootlegger).

Just trying to talk Cundiff off the ledge  :D   :D  :D  :D   :D

Shortly after the kick, my wife turns to me and says, "Cundiff just became the Bill Buckner of Baltimore"  :D

Seriously, only in Foxboro is "11 men and one ghost on the field" not a penalty.  Pats get all the calls!

I would be amazed if this beer tastes good.  Summer ambient temperatures of 80+ can make a beer taste terrible, let along 150 degrees.  5 gallons of beer takes longer to warm up than air, but even 10 degrees could make the yeast go crazy.  Hopefully you were making a Saison.  Or have a terrible palate.

Sucks.  Great game, congrats to the Patriots.  Wish the outcome was different.  Not sure what a dead old rich lady has to do with it, although I know you New Englanders love your American "royalty" (see: bootlegger).  The people on the field are the ones who earned their money, however ridiculous their salaries are.

Drop the carapils, double the late addition hops. 

Fixed that for me  :D

This topic makes me yearn for a waterside supper with riparian entertainment...

Equipment and Software / Re: pickup tube not really picking up
« on: January 19, 2012, 08:39:24 PM »
You don't have a good seal.

Once you get below the ball valve level, air will get sucked in around the ball valve if it doesn't fit right.  This will make you lose siphon, or introduce air that makes your pump lose prime if you have one.

Try some teflon tape on the threads.

Is this what you're talking about?

Why would it have lead in it?  Because it's from China?  Has there been discussion about this on other boards?
