I'm getting ready for a 3 hour round trip drive to retake the tasting part of the BJCP exam.  Can't wait for it to be over!

Same here...never heard of peppers in oil.  Around here, we make sweet pickled jalapenos.

Questions about the forum? / Re: "Members" page suggestion

I agree with you, but I'm not sure the forum software supports that.  I'll look into it, though.

Thanks for suggestions.  I'd looked at the Channel Master, but it only does OTA digital and I've got analog cable.  I decided to order a DVD recorder that uses RW disks... .

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: STAT Fermentation temp question......

No, haven't gotten to the fermentation control chamber portion of this obsession......yet. I will visit Mr. Malty. My main concern was that, although not mentioned, the second fermentation was to be treated as a lagering at cold temps.

We be cool. DWHAHB.

Yeah, kolsch is best cold conditioned after primary is done.

I mean you'd be insane to do anything other than you're doing now!  Unless the railroad job ended up being a LOT more're young enough that might be a consideration.  But from an old fart perspective, you've got a perfect job.  And "manly"????  WTF???  If you need to define your "manliness" by a job, you might as well wear a skirt!  Oh, yeah, the kilt.... ;)

The Pub / Re: Problems with heights.....??
« on: December 04, 2010, 12:22:47 PM »
I used to not be afraid of heights.  In about 81, when I was touring as a roadie, I decided I'd take a job as a rigger hanging points for chain motors.  I could make an extra $100-200 a day in just a few minutes.  Everything went fine until we were playing a hockey rink somewhere in Canada.  As I was crawling out a beam to hang a point, I looked down and thought "I could die".  That was all it took.  It took me nearly 1/2 an hour to inch my way back.  My palms are sweating as I type this just thinking about it.  To this day, if I do much more than stand on a chair, I start losing it.  I even have a hard time watching movies involving heights.

Denny, Joakim didn't state which type of beer he compared - do you know? Did he ever have anyone else try it?

Sorry, was a pils.  He stated that in a different thread when he started discussing the experiment he was going to do.  AFAIK, no one else ever tried it.  Of course, it's only a single data point, but a very interesting one!

You, sir, would be insane to do anything else!

The Pub / Re: Win7 taskbar icon tabs
« on: December 04, 2010, 12:12:12 PM »
Multiple tabs, or multiple "browsers" open?  I've been using Win 7 for about 8 months and have never seen tab previews on the task bar.  However, when you hover over any of the icons, it will show whatever is open for that program.  For example, I'm using Chrome now- writing this and chatting w/ my wife (in a popout window).  When I hover over the Chrome icon, it shows this page and the chat window.  In the same way, if I have multiple spreadsheets open they all show up when I hover over the Excel icon.  It does not, however, show individual tabs for each spreadsheet.  Just a view of whatever's on the screen.  FWIW, I've been digging Win 7.

Perhaps, when you saw it before, it wasn't tabs but different open browsers.

Confused yet?

I _was_ pretty sure it was multiple tabs.  But I'm confused and it seems to be working at least partially the way I want it ot now, so I'm gonna stop thinking about it before my head explodes!  :)

BTW, that's David St. Hubbins from Spinal Tap.

I got chills reading that.  Go for it, Jeff!

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?

Equipment and Software / Re: Foam & Beer Filled Airlock
« on: December 03, 2010, 08:53:00 PM »
Welcome to the club!  Take your airlock off and temporarily put a piece of foil over the top of the carboy.  Foil is sanitary right off the roll, so you'll be good to go.  Wash your airlock and sanitize it, then replace it.  To prevent it in the future, either use a bigger fermenter or a blowoff tube.  See for details.

First, ask yourself why you want to do a step mash...especially a protein rest at 122.  Are you using an undermodified malt?
