I used to be able to download and listen. I can't stream so have to download. Current links on the website only let me stream.

Negative comments about my beers at brew club meeting because they are not IPAs, sours, fruit or any other molested style of brew. Comments are like: "good but not hoppy enough", "good but I like more funk." WTF is FUNK?
Feeling like an oddball, I quit going. Why can't people appreciate a good regular beer anymore?
Regular beer? Like out the grocery store?

Ya, I have no clubs in my area. I have imaginary arguments instead.

  I'd be surprised if your hand warmers generate enough BTU's to have much effect,

This is not something I'm considering doing. I already did it. I just thought it's the time of year for freezing drains and maybe someone might benefit from this idea, which works, that I stumbled on.

So my house is a 10 year old double wide. All water pipes are fully insulated. Drain pipes are not. The only place where water remains stationary is in the shower drains traps. Really easy to guess where the blockage is.

As to insulation, I get it. In ten years this is the first time it's happened. It's on my list of things to do.

Anyway. I just thought it was an easy quick safe way, and maybe it would help someone else by sharing.

He gave the Helles a 38 and the Helles Exportbier a 40. I value that more than any medal. I have since quit brew the Helles just because I really don't care for them enough to have 5 gallons. But the Exportbier is a keeper. I use the base beer as a palate for assorted hops. Right now I'm fermenting the Mittelfruh version and one with Crystal.

Excellent!  FWIW, I'm with ya....I don't care for helles either.
I like it, respect it, it's just not so awesome to me that I need a gob of it around.

Regarding cherry. I've made beers with whole black Cherries, Oregon Fruit cherry puree, and most recently with Fastfruit tart cherry concentrate. Of the 3, cherry puree contributed almost no cherry flavor at 20lbs in a 6 gallon batch. The whole dark Cherries gave a hint of bing cherry in a quad. That was about 6 pounds in 6 gallons. The cherry concentrate, 1/2 gallon in 6 gallons, dominates the beer. That was in a roselare beer.

So, if i want dominant cherry flavor I'll be using Fastfruit concentrate in the future. Maybe not so much next time, maybe same amount cuz I kind of like it that way.

In your beer, I would brew it to have a high residual sugar, high finishing gravity, if you want sweetness. Then use a type of fruit (whole, puree, or concentrate) and amount that will impart the cherry flavor you want. Let it ferment out properly, and get the residual sweetness from the base beer. This would result in a safe beer and probably same effect as going with chemistry or pasteurization.

Edit- I forget, you don't live in the US. Sorry

Ted is an awesome guy. I got to judge Pale Ale with him at Seattle NHC with him last year. Then made him try my Helles and Helles Exportbier. That was fun.

He's the guy for lagers, for sure!  Hop Heaven gets most of my biz, but Niko is great also.

It's not rubber, it's food grade silicone good to 600°f. You put it in before the wort, it stays in through the boil. Read the description. Sometimes a picture is worth 1000 wrong words.

That said, it's a solution in search of a problem.

This was only a tip for thawing. Hand warmers only stay warm about 10 hrs. They won't keep the pipes thawed forever.
