interesting. I just got back from Vermont - had a lot of Hill Farmstead, Alchemist and Lawson's.

I've had the latter 2 before, and I still think Sip of Sunshine is one of the best, but was sort of disappointed in the rest.   :o

this is all very interesting.  however, I don't know that I would ever be able to brew in a 'low 02' system. 

frustrating.  >:(

Equipment and Software / More User Friendly pH Meter

Is there a more user friendly (i.e. moron proof) pH meter out there?  I seem to not be that good at calibrating and getting good readings.

Currently use a MW102.

Quick follow up: when you say purge, are you talking medieval fill it up with sanitizer push with CO2?

that's what I do.  with chainmail on.

what's the preferred method these days?

Add the ascorbic acid at this time?     

First I've heard of this?  :o

What does that do?

If you research the pro brewers who are talking about short DH times you need to realize they are pumping and recircing the beer when DH. 

exactly - this is often overlooked.

I do very similar to zwiller these days, though I don't always cold crash before secondary, but I like to when I have time/remember to.

Hey Paul- Did your Cali common with that Golden Promise ever clear up for you?

Yeah it finally did - took FOREVER.

You need to have a 3 compartment sink :).

Looking good.

Yayaya.  I like that I can fit a 20gal kettle in fairly easily.

Not perfect but good for me.

What's glycol ;)
