I've got Chuck Taylor hi tops, too.  Doesn't make me a basketball player!  ;)

Not unless you're going out for the ABA. ;)

For me, it's more like ABBA!  ;)

My first thought was take off the head and take it apart. See what's going on with the impeller. Could be junk in there or some other problem binding up the impeller.

That's exactly what happened to mine recently.  Took it apart and cleaned it out and it worked great.

Started in '91 and was taught by one of my cousins, who had been brewing for a while, all grain.  So I started with all grain.  Speaking of pre-internet, who remembers "The Cat's Meow"?  I still have copy on one of my brew book shelves.

Oh, yeah!  Worst recipe database ever!  Did you do rec.cafts.brewing, too?

Why I didn't listen to Denny about that I don't know.

Everybody learns at their own pace!  :)

After doing it the first time, I said "that is all there is to it?".

Every single person I've taught to brew AG has said exactly that!

Edit:  I thought FWH just added some more flavor.....

Dave

Flavor is the reason I use it, too, but it does add some bitterness.  According to analyses I've had done, about 10% more bitterness on average than a 60 min. addition.  But neither I, nor a lot of the testers in the experiment I did, perceive FWH as more bitter.  In fact, a lot (most?)  tasters found the all FWH beer to be less bitter than the same beer with only a 60. min. addition of the same amount of the same hops.

Hausotter's the closest thing I can think of :)

He lives in cowboy country, but that's about it!  :)
But he's got boots! ;D

Interesting.  Get some flavor but more bitterness?  Can you explain?

I perceive about the same amount of bittering from FWH as I do from a 20 min. addition.  Now, that's not a hard and fast number and everybody who FWH needs to decide for themselves.  But to me, FWH doesn't provide the same amount and quality of bitterness as a 60 min, addition.  I decide how much hop flavor I want and how much FWH I need to achieve that.  Then I look at how much bitterness that adds (counted as a 20 min. addition) and add enough 50 min. hops to hit the IBU I want.

Didn't Mosher cover that in Radical Brewing. What about a brew book on How To Wright Another Brew Book, How To Be a Homebrewing Star and Cash In or How to Turn Hombrew Forum Time into Cash? Just a little fun guys.

We intend this book to be about more than just brewing with strange ingredients.  Randy has covered that territory and I don't think anyone could do it better.  And if you think it's about cash, try it yourself and see.

I'd move the 15 min. addition to FWH.

And keep the 60 minute addition? 

That's a lot of Amarillo for my taste.  I made an all-Amarillo IPA last year that was 69 IBU's and it was almost too much grapefruit for me. 

Definitely give it a try though.  I'd try to keep the IBU's under 70 though.

Dave

Yep, keep the 60.  IMO, FWH is not a replacement for a 60 min. addition.

The government claims they want to lower the limit to save lives and protect us from ourselves, but their true agenda has always been zero tolerance and Big Brother controlling yet another aspect of our lives.

This is getting dangerously close to political and I may end up deleting this response, but you;d be hard pressed to prove the bolded part.
I apologize for bringing politics into this, Denny.  I should have refrained from posting on this thread from the get-go.  I'll keep my politics to myself in the future.

Thanks.  If you do that, it will be easier for me to do the same!
