I like my white dog.

I had a black lab when I was growing up.

Just finished a batch of German Pils in case the last bottle of my previous batch wins at the NHC regionals.
This was the first time I acidified the sparge water (lactic acid) and I think it made a difference in my efficiency.
All in all a pleasant and trouble-free brew day.

I can't find a link to it, but there's an Associated Press article in today's Tampa Bay Times about Wisconsin Homebrew legislation.  It is accompanied by a photo of Kevin Flynn 46, of Caledonia and his brewing system.  Is Kevin a forum member?

I don't know if Kevin is on the AHA forum or not.  Can I help you with anything?  I am also quoted in the article.
No, just spreading the word about a Wisconsin beer article in a Florida newspaper.

That would also be optimal if you whirlpool in a clockwise direction.

Did anybody in here learn brewing from Greg Noonan? (Brewing Lager Beer)

I started with The Complete Joy... but, quickly moved on to Greg's book.  John Stuart, the brewer at the Winter Park Mill turned me on to it.  He said, "You want to learn how to brew beer?  Read this."

That was the path I took as well. I also had the pleasure of interviewing Greg via telephone for an article I wrote for BYO in the early 90's.
He is (or was) one of my brewing heroes.  Central Florida used to have him come down to Orlando as a speaker each year in the late 90's and early 00's.  I have his autograph in my copy of "Brewing Lager Beer" three times.

As A Thinking Individual, I Couldn't Possibly Care Less.

I'm almost ashamed to say how pleased I am to see this phrased correctly.  Too many people say they "could care less..."
Well, I could care less. ;)

Irregardless, I don't give a R.A.
any moleasses.   

What does residual alkalinity have to do with it?

Mayhap you prefer a different rodent?
Do you have any of unusual size?

Is Jackson Hole WY out of your way much?  I can recommend Snake River.

That's not really so bad, just three mouse clicks, but it would be nicer if it were near the unread posts button.

Equipment and Software / plastic auto siphon conversion
« on: March 18, 2012, 09:44:10 AM »
I like the auto-siphon http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/auto-siphon-5-16.html  but the plastic racking cane tends to get brittle and break over time.  I know this because I have 2 working ones and 3 broken ones which I use for parts.
I just found out that a stainless 3/8 inch racking cane fits snugly into the cut off portion of the bigger, plastic racking cane.  I cut off the bottom 1.5 inches of a broken plastic cane (the end with the rubber plunger) and stuffed the stainless cane right into it.  Better than new.

I still wish they they could bring back the "recent topics" button.  Sometimes after reading all the new posts I want to reply to one, and subsequently cannot find it.
Oh, and could they please, please put the unread topics button a little more out by itself?  Half the time I accidently click on the AHA website and even occasionally hit the little x just above it on my ipod, which closes that browser page.  I can't be the only one out here with fat fingers.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: lagers; to rack or not to rack?
« on: March 18, 2012, 05:47:49 AM »
I usually transfer mine to a clean carboy after the d-rest, but that's more to free up the bigger carboys for the next batch than for any real scientific reason.  There is still plenty of yeast in suspension to clean up the beer during lagering.

January, 1990.  It was a kit brought over by a friend from London called Dogbolter Bitter. 
Amazingly they still make that kit - I had a sample at a supply shop a couple years ago - and it tastes just the same as I remember.

For me it still goes to the top of the page with the first unread post in Firefox and on the mac.  IE still works in compatibility mode.
