Thanks, guys.  I'm not having any issues with my pump, but for that price I might upgrade anyway.

Martin, how much was the impeller and where did you get it?

AFAIK, we have a state law prohibiting the mailing of beer, so nothing changes here.

Not having read the full text of either this bill or the OR law, why wouldn't the federal law trump state law?

Although Federal law usually takes precedence, this one reads "Authorizes the mailing of wine and beer by a licensed winery or brewery in accordance with the laws of the state, territory, or district where the addressee or authorized agent takes delivery".

I saw Roger Waters last night - how long do you think it took them to set that up?  I guess you only have one day because of other events, so if it takes too long you need to hire more people.  That's a crazy long day Denny, I don't envy that at all.

I haven't heard anything about the Waters tour...it could take anywhere from a day to 2-3 days.  They may have 2 sets leapfrogging around.  That's not too uncommon.  When we did Wicked a year ago, it was a 3 day load in with 18 semis.  Believe it or not, an 18 hour day is considered normal in this biz.  I can't wait to retire!

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Pitching dry yeast without rehydrating
« on: May 25, 2012, 01:27:09 PM »
The whole point of using dry yeast for me is convenience. While boiling some water and letting it cool isn't has much work as making a starter, it's still an added step I'm not going to mess with. I do agree that rehydrating the dry yeast makes it look prettier going in the fermenter. Maybe that's what people like so much, the aesthetics.    ;)

If I had proven to myself that it made better beer, I'd be more than willing to do it.

I use 1 pack, not rehydrated, for beers up to 1.070ish.  I have not had any off flavors or fermentation problems from doing that.  Until I do, I'm sticking with my procedure.

And we're done here.

No so fast.  I think Denny'd be the first one to tell you to try it both ways for yourself and decide what works best for you.

Absolutely.  That's how I arrived at my conclusion.  Maybe I should be specific and state that it's been my procedure for US05, Nottingham, S-23, S-189, and 34/70/.

So, I'm trying to draw Mr. Denny Conn out here.  Have you noticed any thing different (off flavors, etc...) just pitching the dry yeast pack without rehydrating?  Anything over 1.060 I just pitch two packs, but is the rumor true that if you pitch dry yeast, without rehydrating,  it kills half the cells instantly?  This doesn't really make any sense to me, as I usually rehydrate in around 85 degree water.  Wouldn't that kill some cells too?  Why does it make a difference when you pitch into wort, is it because of the sugar content, like it's such a shock to the yeast?  Just need a little food for thought.

Now that's just ridiculous for one guy to have to endure.

It's show biz...we work so you can have fun.  The nights and weekends you're partying, we're providing the party.
Now you've got me singing Jackson Browne "Stay Just a Little Bit Longer" for some reason.

I forgive you.  Stagehands HATE that song!  Jackson Browne never had to stick around for the load out!
