Equipment and Software / Re: carboy handle
« on: June 11, 2013, 05:57:37 PM »
As far as carrying full carboys, my wife bought me a brew hauler for Christmas this year and it's one of those things I wish I had sooner.

+ a bazillion.  Brew Haulers are great

There could be a silver lining here:

Maybe, eventually, all hop/rye puns will be used up and breweries will be forced to use less stupid-sounding names:

"Hoppopotamus IPA", "Ryenheitsgebot American Lager", "Hoptimus Prime", "Golden Hopportunity blah blah", etc.


+1 I thought I might be the only one that was sick of this BS.

I'm hopping it ends soon.

I'd prefer it end ryeght now

Did my first Boston Butt on my birthday present ( ) this weekend and wow, just wow!  Took forever but the taste was something else.

Questions about the forum? / Re: Missing avatars

This is just an observation, but I've noticed lately (within the last week, probably) that some people's avatars are missing.  The pictures are replaced with a broken image icon.  As an example, in a recent post (, the avatars for poobah85, mabrunguard, and davidgzach are missing, while they are there for hopfenundmalz, HoosierBrew, and brewmasternpb.

Not sure what's going on.  I just went to that thread and every avatar shows up fine.

But, now knowing I have to keep the temp down to 50-55F, I will need to figure something out before I start it up.

Be aware that the 50-55F is only for fermenting lagers (ie. Pilsner, etc.).  Ales (ie. Pale Ale, Blonde, etc.) only need to be held to the upper 60s

I accidentally stumbled upon the opposite test.  Just found a hidden carboy of a pale ale that was dry hopped in October.  Don't even know if it'd be worth bottling now or if it would just taste like a bag of lawn clippings.

Personally I think it is for people with more money than...  ::)

Can't deny that that description might just apply.

I've been casually looking to upgrade my cooler mashing process for the last few months and came across the Speidel Braumeister system.  From what I've seen of the custom systems that people smarter than I have put together, these machines would not be that dramatically move expensive.  Has anyone purchased one of these or heard of someone who has?  If so, how do ya'll/they like it?  Worth the dough?

Friend of mine has had one for about a year now.  She likes it but she's also crazy for big beers so the gravity limitation drives her nuts (she ends up adding extract to all her brews).

This is the one I've got, can't be beat...

Actually it can (at least on price). I have a Bayou Classic pot - though mine is 62 quarts.

To me, the Bayou Classic does not beat the Megapot (the Amazon link I provided for the Update International pot is the exact same pot as the Megapot, the Megapot even has the Update International sticker on it).  The Megapot is much heavier gauge steel than the Bayou and the big plus is the Megapot has the SS-AL-SS sandwich bottom which distributes the heat more evenly.

Sounds like the typical symptoms of a prostate problem

It's my birthday, too.  Will I be getting one?

Well, not from me you won't.  But I will wish you a Happy Birthday too.  Will that do?
