Who needs books when you have this forum? The knowledge you get here is too new and revolutionary to be in a book ;)

Chemical Engineering covers fermentation and distillation.

some brewpub down the way from me has beer with what looks like glitter in it on tap. who wants to drink beer that glows or glitters?

Which brings up the question, "Will that make your urine glow or glitter?"
Glowing would come in handy at night. Just saying.

Dak Attack Lager and Ezekiel Ale.

PS. I watched Dak at Mississippi State for 4 years. Can't wait to see him win a Super Bowl.

American Wheat with Ekuanot. Very nice.

This is the one I poured from fermenter to keg due to broken autosiphon and other problems. That was 40 days ago. No oxidation problems that I detect. Lots of hop flavor and aroma.

Helles Export. Delicious.

British Blonde today.

100% Maris Otter.
25 IBU Warrior at 60.
Amarillo at 5 min and flameout.
WLP041 yeast.

I don't like pepper, fruit, sour, spice, salt, smoke, bourbon, wood, imperial, 57 hops blended so I can't pick out any of them, bacteria, yeast from people's beards or horses in my beer. This eliminates most of the craft brew market. So, I brew my own.

My mom gave me one of those last year. It's the thought that counts, I guess.

I have used one. They do work. They work best if you can cool the wort to pitch temp before adding to the bag.

I used for about 1 year then switched to chest freezer. I travel for work and the cool brewing bag needs you to be in town to change frozen water bottles.

The last two opportunities to use my AHA discount I looked at my phone walking out of the place to see a BrewGuru alert telling I about the discount. Doh! User error.

I am sure BrewGuru told me sooner but I just didn't think about it. I missed a free pint at Boulevard in KC and 20% off pizza at Mellow Mushroom.

I have an un-opened 500 g brick of Maruibrew 514, best before says June 2014. I plan on doing some higher gravity one gallon brews after Christmas. Kind of nervous about using it, I got it for free though. I am thinking on using double the amount I would normally use for a 1.080 triple. Should I rehydrate it first?
I would rehydrate and do a test batch. If the test batch works then the whole brick likely has the same viability.
