Is that Ted Hausotter in the tan jacket?

They should have it as a smart phone app.
They do, and it's very useful. Costs about 5 pounds ($7.50). The UI's a little clunky, but the functionality is great and you can see where yopu are in relation to the pub and how to get there.
At the risk of sounding noobish, what does 46ppg mean? :XGravity points per gallon. If you had a specific gravity of 1.046, the gravity points would be 46.
I've been using dental floss through the cage. It's small enough that it will seal against the o-ring.So, do you tie floss, filament or teflon tape around the lid? No seal issues if this is the case?
I use monofilament to tie the bag to the diptube.
Italians seem to have a thing against cheese and fish/seafood, but I've never really had that problem, especially with shrimp.
I recently brewed a cocoa stout. problem is attenuation is too low : 55%
any insights? here are the specs:
1st fermentation : 2 weeks at 70F, 2nd : 1 week at 70F. attenuation didn't change from racking.
yeast used : WLP036 dusseldorf (altbier) close to the expiring date, though well kept in fridge.
2 litres starter 18 hours prior to pitching for a 40L batch, which perhaps wasn't vigorous enough - though the actual fermentation seemed to be quick and sufficiently vigorous.
oxygenation of the wort was just as usual.
mash procedures: too hot at first (80 celcius) and brought back to 67 celcius with the addition of cold water after 15 minutes. perhaps denatured too many enzymes (to break down long chain sugars), thus not enough fermentables and too many unfermentables in the wort? though the conversion with the iodine test was OK after 90 minutes of mashing...
Some people tend to confuse skunky aromas with Saaz hop aromas. They seem similar at first sniff, which is why I also thought it odd that Will was blaming the Cascades. Maybe he overdid the Saaz?OK, I'm noticing most of y'all are putting the Cascade up front and the Saaz at the end. I just made a lager with the reverse. Has a real skunky smell from the Cascade, I think I over did it... Maybe now I see why y'all think the Saaz should finish...I don't know where the skunky smell is coming from in your beer, but I've never gotten that aroma from cascades. Skunk typically comes from the beer being light-struck, any chance something like that happened to your batch?
Add on beer tasting for extra income might help alot. Bier One in Newport, Or. is a cool place. Don't know their income, but they are still open with a town population of 10,000.I imagine Newport, Or is going to have an "educated" beer population since Rogue is there. That may offset the impact of only 10K people.
