I bought it a week or so ago and loaded it up on my pc, but it doesn't load onto my Mac.  Is this one of the new features or should it already work on both?

You'll find it in the last place you look...  ;D

Unless it's also the first place . . . :)

But that would also be the last place you look  ;)
Perhaps you should keep looking for a bit after you find it so it won't be the last place you looked.

Oh, the paradox! :)

My wife and I are flying to NOLA Friday morning for our 35th anniversary weekend.  No brewing, but I need the break from last weekend's fiasco anyway.  I plan to eat well, listen to some live music and visit my friend's new race track.

I like EPCOT.  The English Pub there is nice, (Rose and Crown?) Germany's got a few good beers, plus there's a nice brewpub called Big River at Boardwalk that has pretty good beers.  It's part of the Gordon Biersch chain.  If you stay "on campus" you can take a free boat taxi from your hotel to the pub and/or EPCOT.

My wife and I are going to Maine for 2 weeks, something we've always wanted to do but never took the time.  We always spend our vacations with either hers or mine family, but for our 30th anniversary it's all about us this time.

Enjoy!!!  Maine is awesome.  Portland is a good beer city too.
Happy Anniversary.  That's a long time for anything! 
Not too far away is Porstmouth, N.H., also a good beer town. 
Try to get to Ebenezers way out in the country if you can.  Call first, though, because it was closed when we finally got there last Fall.

I think I liked it better when it was called an XPA.

But wasn't that first developed 10 years ago in Cascadia?
More like more than 1000 years ago in Cascadia by the Salish peoples, although the tribe cannot be traced.  It was so ingrained in Salish culture that the original word for it, Huchoosedah, came to refer to cultural knowledge and knowledge of self.  It is where the word "hooch" originally came from.  The Salish believed it was a gift from Essit Sqibik, which we know as the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus.

But you can call it what you like. ;)

I LOVE the PNTO!  I thought it was going to be similar to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but no.  It's better.

Well, I know I posted it somewhere
I guess I need to empty my purse.

I've lost my book.  Any psychic's on here?  Please tell me where I left it.

Have you looked in the bathroom?

It's in your purse.  You'll have to empty it all out to find it.


Hey, that's where it always turns up when my wife loses something.

Someone else posted that video link originally.  I think the thread was about bacon.  I tried to find it but could not.

What a cool dog!  My son and I have watched that video many times

I think I posted that originally, but I can't find it either. ???  It's been around the Facebook scene for a month.

I'm most likely the cheapest, most ghetto brewer in the entire nation

I'd be willing to challenge ya for that title, Dave!

You guys should start a new thread. "Show us your ghetto brewery"  ;D

I particularly like the fact that denny's not embarrassed to show us his rusty old hose clamps.  Every time I see a picture of his set-up I think I need to send him a new clamp or two.  Maybe some new hoses.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Boil time
« on: May 31, 2011, 08:43:38 AM »
99% of the time I do only a 60-70 min. boil, even with pils malt.  I haven't had any DMS issues, so I don't feel like I need to compensate for them.  Every once in a while I get crazy and do a 90 min. boil just to see if I can tell the difference.

I use a lot of pils malt and don't have issues resulting from a 60 minute boil either.  Having a good rolling boil and making sure no condensation falls back into the wort is good practice.

Ya know that bumper sticker that says, "a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work?"  Well, I can now tell you that a bad day homebrewing is not any better than a bad day at work.
My brew day Sunday was frustrating at almost every turn.  Most of the problems came from using some huge cones of whole hops that kept getting stuck in all the valves, pumps, drains and chiller.  I ended up pouring almost ten gallons of still warm wort, hops and all, into another 1/2 bbl keg to ferment.  I hope I made beer.
The thing about brewing is that you're always learning something.  I learned that if I'm going to make an IPA with whole hops, I will need to modify my kettle drain.

:o    Tornado sirens as a bother.     :o
Frequency can dull the senses.

The WIND as wicked destructor
this weekend.

Sent my prize aspen snag to explode on the ground,
in a wicked nasty gust
woodpeckers iz lamenting.

The government weather site calling for epic flows
based on record temps melting voluminous snowpack.

Head fer higher ground.
^^that phrase^^
not so bad as Hunker Down?

Nice poetry, pinnah. 
Waiting for impending hunker down season here in Florida.

I could put together an online version, I guess.  Looks like you've already got it mostly done.  Which mentions did you have a question about?  Maybe I could help you cull the list.

Feel free to borrow my bibliography and alter it as you see fit.

The list I put together is taken from all authors and sources mention in passing in your book, but I've had to make guesses where a book isn't mentioned by name and/or the same author has written multiple books. I assumed that if you mentioned the author by name, but didn't mention a title, you were probably referring to works referenced in the BJCP Interim Study Guide. If I couldn't figure out which book(s) you were referencing, I wrote "various." There are two exceptions, mostly because I was lazy. I didn't include a bibliography of Bamforth or Jackson's works listed in the Interim Study Guide because there are so damned many of them. Finally, since you didn't list any of them by name, but did mention the series, I included all of the Brewer's Publications "Brewing Classic Styles" series, including the most recent ones like BLAM, Wild Brews and Brewing With Wheat.
Ha!  Lazy…..
