If done in order they are about an 8-10 minute walk between and in the same area. Figured it would be easier to stumble from one to the other. We might make Cascade a 90 minutes stop as well.

Perhaps, but the overall temp never went above 172F. I don't recall at the moment the exact temps to avoid, but 175F sticks in my brain as the temp to stay below. The question is does the cavitation cause astringency in and of itself or does the entire wort volume need to be exposed. One other issue I just thought of is if the wort is boiled at the low temp what does that do to the volume and boiloff rate.

In other words we get malt flour in the boil kettle. Thanks, but no thanks!


NEIPA anyone?

The Pub / Re: Cutting the cord options

FYI I don't really consider Direct TV as "cutting the cord". You are still paying the same for the crap you don't want to watch only getting a different provider.

You "cut the cord" you choose what you want to watch and pay for that (mostly).

Actually Direct TV Now is less than if we had to piece together all the networks and shows we regularly watch. I wish we only watched a handful of shows, but apparently some of the networks we watch are not available a la carte or those costs are somewhat expensive.

My issue is my wife likes being able to get all her content in one place. If I had my way I would use 3 or 4 sources to access content and could drive the cost down further. We only have two options for high speed internet and both cost essentially the same thing.

Direct TV Now keeps looking better and better, but convincing my wife to switch may be the hardest thing to achieve.

Great info. It appears with Direct TV Now I could do a $50 plan with add on for HBO and Showtime and still only be $63+ taxes, of course tack on another $50 for internet. Still less than our current bill and I could take it with me other places where I have a high speed connection.

That flight back to the East Coast the next day is going to be a tough one.

You made me look. I'm out at 9am so I might as well stay up! ;)

The Pub / Cutting the cord options

Thinking of eventually cutting the cord with our DSL TV provider. The pricing only escalates and at one time we were saving quite a bit when compared with our old cable bill, but now the pricing is as high or higher.

While I once was tech saavy, I'd prefer this be an easy install with as little headaches as possible. Currently leaning toward DirectTV Now since my wife would prefer to get the majority of her content from one place.

One of our TVs has some antiquated app capabilities so I would consider our TVs to be monitors for this discussion. To use DirectTV Now I would need a Roku, AppleTV, Amazon Fire TV, or to use Chromecast. I've found Chromecast to be glitchy so I'm not considering that. I have an Amazon Fire TV Stick, but it's not been exactly stellar either.

What we may do is try cord cutting at another property and then eventually integrate it into our home.

Suggestions appreciated, but don't get too technical as I might not be able to follow the conversation. ;)

If you are out at SN and like slightly sweet cider there is Bold Rock also at Mills River. Not as pretty as their place in Virginia, but nice and quiet and just a few minutes down the road from SN. I like their ciders, especially their hopped version.

I don't think my flights will get me to a point to be started before 2. Currently thinking of HOTD from 2-3:30 and then set off from there. IME an hour at a really great place might not be enough. We are still scouting locations and this may become an exercise in use of the Hop Fastpass and hoofing it.

Currently eyeballing:
Wayfinder
Natian
Base Camp
Cascade
Scout Beer
Baerlic

It says something about RSVP, is there a place to do so?
