That sort of poor attitude will keep you in intermediate brewer status forever, Denny.
It's as if he's afraid he might learn something.

I actively and proudly maintain my ignorance!

I have no idea what my mill is set to and I don't care.  As long as I get the crush I want it doesn't matter.
I read you said recently that it was something like .028.

My gap is set to .032. I normally get around 75%, not great, but it's pretty consistent, so that's all that matters. I typically use some rice hulls in my mash as well, just a couple hands full. Using a bazooka screen, it tends to gum up sometimes.

If I said that, I must have been drunk.  I've never measured the gap.

The attitude is in the beer, Chumley.

General Homebrew Discussion / Who's going to NHC?
« on: June 03, 2013, 06:23:40 PM »
Directly accross from the hotel is Reading Terminal market with tons of food vendors. Could always meet there (or meet in the hotel lobby and walk there). There are places to sit, but finding room might depend on how busy it is. And in such a huge place we have the risk of heading cats.

Reading Terminal Market is always fun. Great food and a nice price. :)
I really like the Reading Terminal Market, but it has no space to get more than a few people together in any one spot.  I suggest we pick up some food from there and meet in the hospitality suite on Thursday after the seminars and before Pro Night.

Good idea, Jeff.

Number 8 for me this year.  No name tag for me...just look for the red Chuck Taylor hi tops.

LOL.  Another thing we have in common. ;D

You going to be at the conference?  It would be great to meet in person after all these years online.

Equipment and Software / Pump Selection
« on: June 03, 2013, 01:15:34 PM »
I have the March 809 with the 815 impeller and I've never buy the 809 again. What a huge difference in priming and flow after upgrading the impeller!

I also have a Chugger stainless head with the larger impeller. I think they come with an impeller almost the size of the March 815, and the impellers are interchangeable between brands as well as I've done it.

The March 809 although becoming a standard is clearly not the best for our hobby. The 815 or Chugger works better than the 809, and the center input model with the larger (3/4"?) input I've seen work even better, and would be the one I'd buy next if I needed another pump.

My installations are textbook proper per the manufacturers so the only variable has been the impellers. Don't buy the 809 if at all possible.

I just got the 815 impeller for my 809but I haven't had time to install it yet.

Equipment and Software / Re: Hydrometer Conspiracy
« on: June 03, 2013, 10:56:46 AM »
Years ago, after I broke my hydrometer, I decided I'd buy 2 so I'd have a spare in case I broke another one.  I haven't broken one since.  I think having a spare is why!  ;)

Beer Recipes / Re: German Pils - hop and malt questions
« on: June 03, 2013, 10:52:43 AM »
I use just under 10% Munich in mine.  I wouldn't recommend going any more than that with Vienna.  Hops look good.  I usually shoot for more like 40-45 IBU, but that's personal preference.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: 2 yeast strain advice

I'd split the batch and pitch each yeast into half, then blend when it was finished.

Beer Recipes / Gluten Free ale experiment (w/pictures)

A brewery in Portland just put out a GF dubbel that's pretty good.   The style seems to lend itself to lighter body, they use stuff like tapioca, and the candi syrup really covers a lot of the GF "flaws".

Ingredients / Hops is toxic and could be deadly to dogs...
« on: June 01, 2013, 07:47:51 AM »
My first batch was Irish Red and my son's puppy was roaming around.

I'm no prude, dog's can enjoy a bit of beer if they like. But a puppy? If alcohol hurts a human brains development, it should also hurt a puppies brain. So I am on the record that dogs under the age of one should not drink beer.

AFAIC, dogs should never have beer.

The Pub / Re: Is Staples your office supply store?

Come to think of it, a keggerator should be considered office equipment like the coffee maker....just for after my coffee goes cold (around 9am).
