General Homebrew Discussion / pH check
« on: December 28, 2010, 12:38:39 PM »
Am I correct in recalling that mash pH should be around 5.4 at room temp?  And what's considered room temp?  65?  70?  75?

The Pub / A Christmas Story
« on: December 14, 2010, 12:27:15 PM »

When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.

Then Mrs.Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out,Heaven knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.

Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drank all the cider and hidden the liquor.  In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of  little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor.  He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and an irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.

The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?'

And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

Not a lot of people know this.

Questions for Randy and his answers are now posted at .  

Next up are Jamil Zainisheff and Chris White, taking questions on yeast.  Look for the call for questions shortly after the first of the year.

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:
