Haven't tried this one yet, but I saw it in my local LS. I'll pick one up the next time I go there.

Well I'm noticing the aforementioned attenuation issue with my first generation.  I made a 10 gallon batch, one fermenter got S-33 and the other got 1450.  The S-33 finished at 1.014, the 1450 at 1.024.   ???

I kegged a batch yesterday that was made with first gen 1450.  Went from 1.059 to 1.010 in 3 1/2 weeks at 62-63F.  That's about 83% AA.

What syle beer did you make? What mash temp?

Victor Wooten is the man.  He might only be 4'9" (exageration) but man can he thump a bass.  I have seen him solo also and he will do some ridiculous things, like tune down his bass mid song without missing a note, then tune it back up before the song is over.  Talk about hands flying all over the place......Crazy.

He has ultimate and extreme control over his instrument AND it appears as though he does it effortlessly.

My taste for fusion was only recently really sparked.  A friend of mine is really into Bela Fleck though.

Here's one from Weather Report:

Something to play while cold crashing a beer:
Vaughan Williams - Sinfonia Antartica

Love Jaco's funky fusion bass lines in Palladium.

I'm taking a half today, Ron.  I know your brewing an ESB today, I may do my Dortmunder today or wait until the snow is up to my a$$ tomorrow.;D  The generator is primed an ready, the snowblower as well and I have an Ofest and wee heavy on tap.  The pantry and freezer are full.  Bring it on! ;D

A little snow never stopped me before, so why start stopping now.  ;D

Well I just mashed in my ESB and no flakes yet. They're saying it will start here at 4pm. I'll try to post some pics later.

Well, I'm "getting outta Dodge" (in my case, NJ)   just in time...a few hours before the flakes start falling I'll be on a plane to Los Angeles for a weekend gig.  The trip back Sunday should be interesting...hopefully it'll all be plowed out and over with...

Amen to that!

I enjoy it to a certain degree. Until my back is sore from moving snow.

This group of musicians display a collective stew of melodic proportions and talent among the best performing musicians out there today.

Béla Fleck and the Flecktones is a multi-Grammy winning, primarily instrumental group from the United States, that draws equally on bluegrass, fusion and jazz, sometimes dubbed "blu-bop".

These guys are fantastic!

Enjoy.  8)

Just make sure the kegerator/keezer is plugged into the generator!!  ;D

You must have piles upon piles of snow by now.  I feel for ya!!

Only if I had a generator and hopefully I won't need one. Wouldn't be a bad idea to own one though.
