The Pub / Win7 wireless printing problem
« on: June 03, 2015, 08:44:03 AM »
Calling all IT geeks...I need help!  I have an Epson 3640 printer that's on my network via wifi.  It has worked flawlessly with laptops, tablets and phones...until yesterday.  I installed a new router yesterday and now I can't print from my laptop, which is what I used to install the router.  I'm definitely in contact with the printer...I can scan via wifi and run utilities that show me ink levels, etc.  Every other device in the house works fine, still, too.  When I try to print, the job seems to get stuck in the spooler and eventually return an error.  I have cleared the spooler both via the print manager and by going to the folder and deleting the spooler file manually.  Still no go.  It's almost as if win7 uses a separate spooler file for wifi....?  The one thing I suspect is this...when I was setting up the router, I had my laptop connected to it via an ethernet cable.  Early in the setup process I was asked if I wanted to print out the new router settings.  When I tried that, it was obvious I wasn't connected to the network yet, so I cancelled the print job.  I'm wondering if that left something bogus somewhere.  Other than that, I got nothing but frustration.   Anybody have any idea what could be going on, or how wifi printing in Win7 works?

General Homebrew Discussion / Beer in Brazil
« on: May 01, 2015, 12:52:17 PM »
Just in case anyone is interested, here are some pics from our first day in Brazil.  Started off going to an artisinal glass factory where they helped us blow our own crystal beer glasses.  It's a heavily German area, so lunch at a great German restaurant.  Then to Bierland brewery, one of the most respected in Brazil, for some incredible German beers.  Followed that with a trip to Brazil's first brewing school.  Only a year old and they have 1000 students.  Finished the day at a cachasa distillery in the middle of the jungle.

I've accepted the position of Brewery Ambassador for Oakshire Brewing in Eugene OR.  Tours, tasting, and education.  Spent the afternoon helping brew their flagship IPA to get a feel for how the brewhouse works.

Received the Zymatic demo unit yesterday.  I'm working through how to use it and hopefully I'll brew with it this weekend or early next week.  Should be a real learning experience!

General Homebrew Discussion / Help Denny and Drew write their book!
« on: January 28, 2015, 12:18:09 PM »
Drew and I are hard at work on a new book called "Homebrew All Stars" and we'd like to ask for your help.  We need to develop baseline demographics about how you brew.  To do that, we've created a survey at http://www.experimentalbrew.com/content/homebrew-all-stars-our-next-book-help-us-out .  If you have a few minutes, please take the survey and help us out!  Thanks for your time!

General Homebrew Discussion / New cleaning products
« on: January 28, 2015, 09:46:10 AM »
Well, new to me at least!  I was recently sent a box of samples by Craftmeister, part of the same company that makes BTF Iodophor.  They sent me powdered oxygen wash (like PBW), powdered alkaline wash, and a bottle of the oxygen wash in tablet form.  1 tab per 3 gal.  I want to tell you that this stuff is fantastic!  It dissolves thoroughly and easily, rinses with little effort and most importantly does a killer job of cleaning!  I have no idea how the price compares to PBW, but I can tell you that I will be using this stuff from now on.  It's So much easier to dissolve and rinse than Oxiclean that it kinda makes me not want to use Oxi any more!  If you have access to this stuff, definitely give it a try.

Sorry to sound like an infomercial, but this is something that most people don't know about that will really improve your cleaning.

Going Pro / Where's Tom?
« on: January 26, 2015, 05:05:50 PM »
I had a chance to visit Tom Schmidlin recently at his new brewery, Postdoc.  Also had a chance to talk with Marc, who's doing sales.  Most importantly, I got to try the whole lineup of beers, which were uniformly excellent!  Beatiful brewing system, too.  No wonder Tom looks so happy.
