You realize with these three conspiracy threads as evidence you can never speak ill of this board again.

I was hoping I wouldn't have to say that!   ;D

Paul, wouldn't that affect more users, though?  I'm on here more than most people and I've never had a hint of trouble.  I guess I probably just jinxed myself!

I'd suggest getting a few AG brews under your belt and experimenting with your setup before deciding what kind of system you want.  

Really good advice.  Establish a flow, then build equipment that fits it.

Thanks Denny, I appreciate it. I will let you know if anything changes. To recap:

The WPOD (White page of death) is happening on two different machines, at what appears to be random intervals. Both machines are MAC's running 10.6.4 and Safari 5.0.2 One machine travels and experiences the problem in different locations, to include different continents.

Loading posts is never a problem. Pages affected are, in order of severity: Everything on the left side of the profile page (but not the profile page itself) replies, and writing pm's

Oscar, take a look at Drew's response back in the original thread.  There's a lot of action, but no answers.  And BTW, I hope you appreciate my restraint in not talking about the platform you're using!  ;)

The AHA web team is now on this on their own and with the co. that provides our web services.  They're checking logs and other stuff.  It would sure help if someone else had this problem!  So far, none of us has been able to replicate it.  FWIW, this came from the web team...

"I've searched around some on SMF and haven't anything with this issue exactly. Find some topics mentioning blank pages but doesn't seem to be
this issue.  I run both Ubuntu and Windows 7 and loaded the forum in Chrome and FF on Ubuntu and Chrome, FF, and IE on Windows and cannot duplicate the issue."

Thanks, Janis.   I was just picturing trying to do dinner for our club!  We've had an explosion of members the last few years and our tech meetings are now over 60 in average attendance.  Parties are too big to even guess!

I'm the Tech Tsar for our club and we do it both ways, but usually at our regular meeting.  The regular monthly meeting is where we exchange info on events and other things.  The socializing happens after that part of the meeting.  It can range from a presentation by me or another member to an open discussion of a topic to a "Tech Triva" thing with prizes.  We also have a fair number of "meetings" that are strictly parties, so it's not a big deal to have the regular monthly meeting devoted to info and technical stuff.

Profile: Direct from the Austrian Alps, this strain will produce rich, full-bodied and malty beers with a complex flavor profile and a great mouth feel. Attenuates well while still leaving plenty of malt character and body. Beers fermented with this strain will benefit from a temperature rise for a diacetyl rest at the end of primary fermentation.

3725-PC Bier de Garde

Oscar, please understand that I was not taking your problem lightly.  But I'm a volunteer with limited ability to do anything technical with this forum.  If I can't reproduce your problem and if no one else reports it, I don't know where to start looking in my limited bag of tricks. If it is indeed a server side issue, I'm completely out of luck because I have no access to the server. I've sent an email to the AHA web team asking them to look into this.  I hope they'll have a speedy and successful solution for you.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Do I need a starter?
« on: December 20, 2010, 04:30:20 PM »
So here's a dumb question. 
Can I put 4 liters of starter in a carboy, let it ferment for a day or two, put it in the cold room (about 2 degrees C right now), dump out the liquid and put my wort directly in on top? 

Yeah, although you might find it's more hassle than it's worth.

Can you use anything besides DME?  I only bought enough DME for the recipe I want to make.  I can get more but if I'm just gonna chuck it, why not just sugar boiled in water?
Thanks


Well, you could use LME... ;)  But sugar won't cut it.  It's gotta be malt so that the yeast doesn't get acclimated to other sugars.  In addition, sugar doesn't have the nutrients the yeast need.

FWIW, I use an old metal picnic table for my "Brewstand".  Check out www.dennybrew.com
