The Pub / Win7 taskbar icon tabs
« on: December 03, 2010, 09:40:13 PM »
I just got a new laptop with Win7 and I'm working on learning its particulars.  Originally, if I had a program like Firefox (for example)open with multiple tabs open in it, the taskbar icon for it would show multiple tabs on the icon and allow me to preview what each one was.  Somehow I turned that off.  Anybody know how I can get it back?

The Pub / DVR questions
« on: December 03, 2010, 10:38:22 AM »
So, still living in the past, we're a 2 VHS household. But that can't last forever, so I've been thinking DVR and I need some edumacation. We get our cable signal from a VERY small local co. called Countryvision run by a family out of their garage. No Comcast, no Dish Network, etc. We don't use a cable box, just the tuner on the TV. So, what are my options for a DVR in that situation? what have you got and how do you like it?

Saw this on a couple other boards and wanted to let everybody here know, too.  Check out .  They go live tomorrow, but through today you can go there to get a discount code that won't be available after they open.  I don't really have much other info.

The Pub / Hop Sink

I mentioned in another thread that not only is my wife highly supportive of my brewing, when we decided to remodel our bathroom she had a custom fused glass sink made, with glass representaions of hop leaves and cones imbedded in it.  Here are some pics of it (not installed yet)....

The Pub / Monks in New Mexico Build Brewery
« on: November 12, 2010, 09:11:19 AM »
Monks at Monastery of Christ in the Desert in New Mexico have begun
construction of a building that will house a small brewery. The monks
currently have Monks' Ale and Monks' Wit made under contract at Sierra Blanca
Brewing. Sierra Blanca will continue to make those beers for wider
distribution. Although Brad Kraus, who also brews at Blue Corn Cafe & Brewery
in Santa Fe, will oversee brewing - both pilot batches and small runs for
draft distribution - several monks will work in the brewery. The monks are
also experimenting with growing hops on the property, starting with native
New Mexican varieties. Details:

Ingredients / Water help needed...RA=450
« on: October 08, 2010, 10:52:03 AM »
I'm about to brew a batch of BVIP and rather than randomly throwing a tsp. of CaCO3 in the mash like I've always done, I'm sitting here with Palmer's spreadsheet trying to calculate my additions.  My water..


The beer color comes out to 45 SRM and according to the spreadsheet 450 is the median RA to shoot for.  6.5 gal. of mash water.  If I add 5 gr. of CaCO3, 3 gr. of CaCl2 (to balance the sulfates), and 4 gr. of baking soda, it only gets me up to 160 and those amounts are enough to start me worrying.  What to do?  Do I call it close enough or go crazy and add more?

General Homebrew Discussion / Ask the Experts
« on: October 02, 2010, 09:36:07 AM »
In the next week or so, we'll be launching "Ask the Experts" as a special AHA members only feature on the main website.  We'll have various brewing experts available to answer questions you submit.  There will be an email address for people to submit questions on a topic the expert has decided on, and a couple weeks later the questions and answers will be posted on the main AHA website.  You'll have to be an AHA member to access them.  John Palmer will be the first expert, and we've got a couple more lined up after that.  We'll have one per month.  But I'd like to hear from all of you with suggestions about who you'd like to have and what topics you'd like them to cover.  Please post your suggestions here and I'll do my best to  contact the people you mention and ask them to participate.  Keep in mind that the experts will be volunteers who aren't reimbursed for their time.
