Yep.  Terroir makes a huge difference.

funny, I feel like most of those were intentionally awkward though

Having posed for too many band photos in my life, I think they're frighteningly real.

You really need to talk to your local liquor control people.  You don't want the restaurant to get busted and lose their liquor license.  Sure, you might be able to keep it quiet and get away with it, but it's not fair to your potential hosts.  Here in OR, we got the law changed to allow what you want to do.  If you find it isn't legal, maybe you could start working toward getting it changed.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: advice on dry hopping
« on: July 26, 2013, 10:21:53 AM »
While I agree with the bucket advice, I also don't understand the problem getting hop bags into a carboy.  Although I try to avoid using carboys, I've done it recently.  I had little trouble getting a bag with 1-2 oz. of whole hops into or out of a standard carboy.  Just squeeze 'em to get 'em in and pull the bag to get them out.

Drew the Saison Master has probably done it.  Maybe send him a PM....

The updated app is available for download now.  I got it earlier today.

The problem with the infrared thermometers is that you only get the surface temp.  That's fine for some things, but not for taking a mash temp, for example.

What is the name, where did you find it and  are you content with that drill stirrer?

It's called a MixStir.  I got it at the LHBS, but they're available online.  Very satisfied.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: CO2 Question
« on: July 25, 2013, 07:42:53 AM »
OK, I grabbed a C02 cartridge and slapped it onto my keg - before reading the "not for human consumption" warning :-[.  Is my beer ruined? :(  I popped it off, and sampled a glass - didn't notice any off flavors.  Will hit the homebrew store on Friday to pick up the "human-safe" ones...

That's because CO2 isn't safe for human consumption!  It doesn't have any meaning in relation to the contents of the cartridge other than that.

You'd have to have a might small arm to scrub rust inside a keg.

WY1450 works well for impy porter.  Nice mouthfeel.

I think it should be called Not-So-Ruthless.  There's just not enough rye there!
