At least there weren't any injuries and/or casualties. Sounds like it's under control.

Got about 2 foot here as well.  MDDOT takes pretty good care of the roads.  My driveway is clear and dry.  The dogs are having a blast in this, except for the rathound, the snow is about 4X his height :o

That's funny you mention it. I made some walkways in my yard with the snowblower for my little YorkiePoo. He's happy now.  8)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Best Practices for Stepping Up a Starter
« on: December 20, 2009, 06:23:29 PM »
For a 1.050 lager, you'll need about a 5L starter for one vial of yeast. So I would step it up accordingly. In addition.... I would decant most of the wort before each addition. If you have the time, cold crashing would yield the most yeast as Denny has indicated. If time is a constraint...decanting and repitching will certainly work as well.

Equipment and Software / Re: Using a pump

I use the "belt AND suspenders" approach.  I recirculate StarSan through my pump for about 5 minutes, then at the end of the boil I recirc boiling wort for 5-10 min.

or you can also use some hot water from the HLT to run through the pump prior transfer as well. I also like to run hot water through the pump to do a final cleaning prior to storage.

I've read some folks like to pump near boiling water through it prior to doing a sanitary transfer. I just started using a pump for transfers... but I use a gravity feed for transferring my chilled wort into the fermentation vessel.

We have four to five foot drifts in Delaware. Record snow for December. Thank God for snowblowers.

What kind of sugar are you planning to use. I use dark candy syrup that works really well with a Dubbel.

That looks great Capp. Polish food at it's best. That Kielbasa looks familiar only because I bought the same when I was up at your shop the other week. I recently made potato and cheese pierogi's. I make them the same way...fried onions in margarine with sour cream, Kielbasa and Kapusta too. mmm...mmm...delicious.
