I guess that was just too subtle.
It's a Ford Prefect.
It goes along with rabid_dingo's quote.

Aside from the beers, how did you like the Kennedy School?  We've stayed there several times and really enjoyed it.

They evidently bought one on an episode June 15, 2010, but I guess I'll have to wait to see it come around on reruns.  I find those guys pretty obnoxious.

I have a friend who removes all traces of bark before he smokes his malt.  I find this a bit anal, but he says it helps with reducing astringency in the beer.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: W2112/W4021 Combination?
« on: September 12, 2010, 04:24:25 PM »
I used Cal Lager yeast in a sack strength braggot that attenuated from 1.132 to 1.030 at colder temps than what you have.  That's 77%.  Pitch big and you should get what you want with it.  If not, add the Champagne yeast later.

Here's another picture.  I'm so proud of my new fridge.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: How do you blend your beers.
« on: September 12, 2010, 02:45:24 PM »
Thank you for the ideas.

Another question is how do I blend it into the keg?
Let say I have two kegs with base beer and one empty clean keg.
My blend is 35% (1.75 gal) + 65% (3.25).
How do I know that I transfered 1.75 gal from first keg?
Do I use scale?

Yes, if you are pushing the beer with CO2 from each keg in a closed system, then a scale is the best way to tell how much you have transferred.  If no scale is available and the beers are cold, you can take them out of the cool area and watch the condensation on the outside to see how much beer is inside.

Yes, it works and it's quiet and doesn't cycle on very often.
Haven't found an "energy star" on it, but it seals well.
Isn't it cool that something 76 years old still works like it should?

Nice!

Probably weighed a ton! I am in line to get an old fridge from my wife's
granny. It has to be in the 40-50 yr old range. I have been warned already
that if I put a hole in it I have to move out of state...But it is nicely chugging
away at cooling...I know it still works.

I won't be cutting any holes in it.  When the funds are available it'll get a nice shiny coat of paint though.  That's all the restoration it needs.  Yes, it weighs more than I thought - about 275 #.
The top lifts off so all the workings are separate from the steel ice box.

That's amazing, surely it must have been recharged at some point.  It must use freon, right?  Can they even put R22 or whatever they use nowadays in something like that?  That's really cool, I'm totally jealous.

I need to get a new bottle fridge, the old one is really inefficient.
No, it runs on sulphur dioxide.  All original.
