I was thinking more of the furry animal.  That you, Denny?

Closer than a cherub! ;)

I've had a 2 lb. bag in my supplies for over 10 years.  Never needed them.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: mash or steep?

I dunno...to me, a mash is just a steep with a controlled temp, time, and amount of water.  I certainly don't see "significant differences".

I got an HP laptop recently too, Win7, 500GB hard drive, 6GB RAM, 17 inch screen :)

My wife's got an HP with a 17 in. screen and I really like it.  Biut I carry mine around every day and I find a 15.6 just enough smaller to make that a bit easier.

I repeat a lot of recipes and when I look back through my brewing log it appears I do them about the same time every year.  Not planned at all...it just works out that way!

+1 I'm efficiency obsessed so I push my crush to the edge.  A friend of mine once said, "Crush 'til you are scared." 

Hey, that's my saying!

Oh, and to answer the OP - no, I don't have any specific dates when I normally brew.

I try to take the day off for my birthday every year (2/14) to brew.  That's my plan again this year.

Today (Groundhog's Day) is my 31st wedding anniversary.  
That's great Denny, congratulations!

And to you too Jeff, I'll forget by June :)

Thanks all!  It's my wife's favorite "holiday" since it involves a furry animal.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Calcium and Magnesium and their effects on mash pH
« on: February 02, 2011, 09:24:37 AM »
After going through several different brands of base malts, I settled on Rahr as my favorite several years ago.  I wonder if the lower pH contributed to making my beers better, leading me to choose it over others?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Cal Lager for Light Lagers- Hmm, not so sure.
« on: February 02, 2011, 09:06:22 AM »
I've never agreed with the idea that the CA yeast makes good lagers.  I've always gotten far better results on pseudo lagers using WY1007.  It's just seems cleaner and crisper than the CA.  And like you say, there's nothing like using a REAL lager yeast.
