$39.99, no installation fee. The $600 installation fee was the stopper for me. Up until now.
Some of you may know that I live so far out in the sticks that I have not had access to high speed internet for 7 years or so. Welp, I finally got rid of dial up and got satellite internet through Hughes Net. Not as fast as the cable modem at work but soooo much better than dial up. And I also have WiFi through out the entire house now, which means I can surf the forum on my iPod. Woot!
Side note: I actually downloaded the Avenger's Trailer yesterday (20 megs). Still took about 10 minutes or so but I could never do that on DU.
You need to see for yourself, but I was never pleased with carafa as the primary roast component for a stout or porter - lacking in bite. there is a reason it is used in schwartzbier and black IPAs
I think it could be said GW is great in general, its my stocked American 2row as well.
Start sending me your requests now for the NHC ;-)
Fyi, light munich is 4-8l while dark munich is 8-12l. This is from real German maltsters.
Ahh okay, well this will be great western munich which is listed at 10L. Trying to keep it as local as possible. Hard to find organic american grown goldings though. Guess I will just have to grow some.
I agree with what's above, but when you get a chance, decant the liquid and top it up with distilled water. Even better if it's been boiled/chilled, but a brand new bottle will be sterile enough. The water will help the yeast last longer than the acidic/alcoholic environment they are sitting in now.
Any fear that distilled water will leach minerals out of the yeast?
