One, I do not drink or throw out beer cans while hunting. Wilderness is clearly defined and protected. Private land is private and what one does on his land, as long is legal is fine. Lumping all hunters as beer can the same as calling all homebrewers alcoloholics. Wrong. What you have might be nice, but clearly not wilderness hence what they do is legal.
 Also, I drug my deer a half mile, vehicles weren't allowed off the road.

Used to work for the Forest Service, I know what wilderness is and the laws that protect it. If you have wilderness there, then report the illegal activity. Nation wide, designated wilderness is protected. If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

I live on 7 acres of mountain land that is surrounded by thousands of acres of wilderness which encompasses a hunting club. Damn hunters rumbling their pick up trucks and running their damned four wheelers all over my mountain and throwing their bud light beer cans all over the mountain and ruining perfectly good hiking weather. I f'ing HATE hunting season.

I do let my neighbor tag me a doe for my freezer every year. But it's not worth the three months of hunting season by any stretch of the imagination.

Personally, I think we should make hunting season July and August and let the damn hunters deal with ticks and chiggers and mosquitos and rattlesnakes rather than giving them the best time of the year to go out in the woods just to sit in a damned tree stand.
Seems you are a bit bitter.....if it truly is wilderness then any vehicular traffic would be outlawed. Maybe if you joined in you would enjoy it more.

I don't hunt but Mrs. Weaze does. In fact, I just bought her a new Savage 270. She didn't actually shoot anything this year, but did manage to tag a nice roadkill. So, we have some nice steaks, roasts, 30# of sausage, and 30# of jerky.
That's a nice gun, I use a Savage 110 in 308. Its dropped every deer I've shot at.

My deer season ended yesterday with a 205 pound 8 point whitetail buck. Anyone else do any good. Brewing Big Buck Old Ale tomorrow!

Shot a big 8 pointer yesterday, so I'll be brewing up a Big Buck Old Ale tomorrow!

Ingredients / Re: Using DME for Bottle Priming?
« on: November 12, 2012, 03:11:20 PM »
My .02 I have primed with DME. it took longer and I didn't notice a difference in taste. If you are hung up on the beer purity laws then go for it.

Also tabel sugar over corn. I don't see any difference. I believe table sugar to be ever so slightly more fermentable by weight than corn sugar and there are resources on the web to give you those numbers. I believe northern brewer has a chart on line.

one other thing;

I have a recipe that calls for 1 1/4 cup of Extra light DME for bottling after fermentation is complete.  Is DME better for priming instead of priming sugar (Corn Sugar 1lb)?  What is the difference in using DME or priming sugar for bottling?

unless you are doing a very large batch 1 lb of corn sugar is too much. you are generally in the 4-6 oz range for a 5 gallon batch, maybe a bit more for highly carbed beers like belgians a bit less for low carb beers like barley wines. 1 lb is going to net you bottle bombs for sure.

Yeah Purity Laws, before kegging used DME exclusively. I can't imagine the cost be a factor to a home brewer between DME, corn sugar or table sugar. Use what makes you feel good!

I haven't been able to go ice fishing in years, and and I'm more likely to need shorts than long underwear during deer season nowadays. Global warming sucks.
Was down to a t-shirt by 9 a.m. this year. Listening to frogs and crickets and watching butterflies is not what deer season is all about!

Kegged a batch of American Wheat made with Belma today. I like this hop, citrussy with an orange character. Check my blog, Penrose Picobrewery for recipe.

Sunday afternoon an American Wheat with the new Belma hops.

Look at the Brewhemoth,
We build an internal chiller, just what you are talking about. A quick search should show a video or two, not to mention a few discussions on facebook and various boards. Currently I am finishing up a batch of Special Bitter, 10 gallons that was held at 67 +/- 1 in a 75 degree room using one in my Brewhemoth.

That middle batch of flaked rye looks very suspect, almost molded, hence your nasty flavor?
