Equipment and Software / Re: Hop spider design

i'm now inspired to build a hop spider!  any other fun gadgets like this that would help out a beginning extract brewer?

I just brewed a session ale, 6 lb golden light DME .5 C77 british crystal steeped bravo hops to bitter to your desired level (I went to about 26 IBU with the bravo) and then a bunch of hops (I used amarillo cause that's what I had) between 15-flameout with a 15 minute hop stand at the end. I was drinking it in just over a week (I keg, bottles would take longer) I used US-05 but a more floculent british yeast would be good to.

'hop stand' isn't a term i'm familiar with.  elaborate?  pls/thnku!

i have no idea what to brew this weekend!  i have an empty carboy sitting here sanitized and stoppered, but no clue what to put in it.  i'd like to make something that matures quickly so i can have it ready for a big campout in 6 weeks.  any ideas to throw at this extract brewer?

i'm really interested in brewing the new recipe of the week, but i'm not sure how to go about roasting the oatmeal.  anybody have some pointers on how to go about it?  the first thing that pops into my mind is spreading it out on a cookie sheet to roast it.  is that totally off base?

you can also make hard cider using store bought apple juice or sweet cider.  be careful though to make sure that there are no preservatives listed anywhere on the label.  then just add yeast and any adjuncts and you can produce a fairly mediocre cider.  it's not terrible, but it's no crispin.
