The Pub / Thanksgiving day Brewcast
« on: November 19, 2010, 10:05:43 PM »
  It's official. Thanksgiving day will be my first brewday in Idaho. It's going to be a balmy 23* here. I'm sure most of you have plans, but if you get time, check in on me at www.bambuser.com    At the top, click on "broadcast", and scroll to Weazletoe, or type Weazletoe in the search box. I'm not doing it cause I think I'm such a great brewer, you all need to learn from, it's just kind of a fun thing. You can see me in all my kilted glory!!!  ;D

The Pub / One step closer
« on: November 14, 2010, 09:54:28 PM »
  Came back to Idaho, and was able to get my two, five lb. CO2 tanks on the plane. I got my kegs all boxed up, and dad says as soon as he gets home, he's going to send them to me. Holly's uncle dropped off a few dozen bottles, and carboy, and some other odds and ends he picked up at a garage sale. And, I have plans to put a 6x8 addition on the mancave, for my brewery. So, soon as dad gets my kegs out to me (he's here in Idaho now) I'll fire up the burners in the backyard. Won't be long now. i'm actually on a "beer hunger strike" until I brew again. I'm not drinking any beer. The next beer to pass my lips will be homebrew.  8)
  (speaking of Weazletoe Sr., I took him to Jackson Hole, Wyoming yesterday, it was pretty sweet!)

The Pub / Distilling
« on: October 15, 2010, 03:25:53 PM »
   I was doing some research on making a still. For water of course. I mean, distilled water is expensive. And, I got to thinking, just out of curisoity, if one were to distill 5 gallons of let's call it 8% abv homebrew, distilled alcohol could one expect to have?

The Pub / Chocolate syout cheddar
« on: October 07, 2010, 08:43:03 PM »
 I bought at half pound today, and just ate a chuck. WOW!!! Was this an amazing cheese! I never expected to actually taste the chocolate stout in it, but I feel as if I just ate white sharp cheddad, and washed it down with chocolate stout. THe beer hits you right up front. It fades pretty fast, and then you're left with taste of white sharp cheddar. This is one fine cheese, gentlemen.  :D

  I'm flying back home to Idaho tomorrow, through Denver. Made planes to meet Rabid Dingo there, since he works there. Gonna be cool! This is about the 3rd board member I'll have met. Always a nice treat! (I can't tkae beer on the plane, so I picked him up a little token gift, in true Weaze style. Maybe he'll post a pic tomorrow  ;D )

General Homebrew Discussion / Nice find today.
« on: September 09, 2010, 06:45:12 PM »
Flew into ohio yesterday. Went to work at the sheet metal shop, where all my stuff  was stored, and my kegs were left. I was looking at the sad sight of my kegs, and picked one up, and WHAT HO!! It was half full!!!!!!!! I pulled the top, stuck a plastic cup in, and drank 8 oz. of my black IPA. I almost cried I was so happy. Yet, so sad at the same time. Tomorrow, I'm gonna go buy a cobra tap, and drink the rest proper. Oh the momories. And I just don't recall that beer being so dang good!!!   :D

  So0ld my truck today. Funny, It's my first day back in Ohio, and I sold it. Woohoo!!!  So, here's the next ride, I'm picking up in  Idaho. It's a '90, and has beenpretty much totally rebuilt. Could use a little body work, and a coat of paint, i'm thinking olive drab, or satin black, but mechanically in great shape. With my new job out there, I hardley drive at all, so it'll be perfect for me. It'll be a fun toy. What do you all think?

Triple IPA, by Founders. I am in love!!!! This is anamazing beer!!! 112 IBU's, and 12% abv. No alcohol burn, and the hops just pucker your butthole ever so nicely, without being invasive. It has just enough caramel to balance the hops. Many of the doubles and triples I've had are way to malty for me, but this is perfect. In fact, it reminds me a lot of my "Thunderstruck" barley wine.
  Man I can't wait to get brewing!

All Grain Brewing / How long will my grain last?
« on: August 26, 2010, 12:45:57 PM »
  Well, look who just finally posted in a beer thread again! And, not because i'm brewing.  :'(  Appears I won't be able to brew for a while now. I had all the grain for 12 gal of wheat. I bought it back in Ohio, around April or so. It's been kept, unmilled, in a grain sack, inside my mash tun. been sitting in a storage shed for a couple months in Ohio, now it's in a shed here in Idaho. Will it still be good for a while, or should I count it a loss? Way thongs are going, I won't be brewing for awhile. The movers left my kegs, and CO2 bottles in Ohio. So, I have no way to keg, and no place rally to store bottles, even I did buy some.

The Pub / It appears I'm not brewing for a while.

 The movers finally made it here to Idaho with our stuff. What a fiasco. It's a long story, but the Cliff Notes are this.....They were 2 days late picking up in Ohio, and 2 days late dropping off in Idaho. We were quoted 2200$, And ended up paying 5800$. All of our boxes look like accordions, and a lot of stuff is broke. Washer and dryer, that are rather new, and were very expensive are scratched and dented, and the control panel was knocked off the washer. My computer  / work desk is smashed beyond use, and our furniture is cover in chips, scratches and gouges. My mattress was strapped to the back of the trailer, and we ended up with a few things that do not belong to us.
 I found out from the dude I worked for in the sheet metal shop, where our stuff was stored, that they were not going to take 90% of my stuff, as there was no room on the truck for it. He insisted they take it, so, to make room, he wathched them take others peoples boxes off the truck, and THROW THEM IN THE DUMPSTER!!!!!! We were also charged 800$ for packing, and materials, when we had everything packed.
   They were not able to get all our stuff on the truck, so they left our 16', 1000 gallon swimming pool, a coffe table, about half a dozen boxes, and....here goes....all 5 of my cornies, my 15.5 gal keg, both my propane tanks, and both my CO2 tanks.
     You can all bet, there is hell to be paid. THey will experience the wrath of the Weaze!!!  >:(

The Pub / Since we're talking books....
« on: August 02, 2010, 09:01:36 PM »
I just have to say I've really been into James Patterson, lately. The Alex Cross series, namely. What a great series! Been having a lot of time to read lately, in airports, and on planes. Right now I am in the middle of Four Blind Mice. I think the best so far though, is Double Cross.
  I should also mention Nelson DeMille. Anything of his with John Corey is great! The Lion's Game was one of the best books I've read yet (right up there with any of them in The Lonesome Dove series) The Lion just came out, and I can't wait to read it.
 
   Now, back to your regularly scheduled beer forum.

 Not going rehash my story again, but I thought I would put a few pics up of the new place. It's not to bad so far. At least, the few times I've actually  been here.

Yes, that's right. Stroh's is spoken here.

The Pub / Got a new job
« on: June 28, 2010, 08:06:12 AM »
  Go ahead and laugh at me, but so far, I love it! Not much work for sheet metal / HVAC in Idaho. So, I'm working from home. i'm taking the 1-800 calls for infomercials. Pretty much anything you see on t.v., I take orders for. It's a pretty sweet gig. I can work any hours I want, as much or as little. The pay is actually pretty good. It's the same as anything I would get doing HVAC / or sheet metal in Idaho. A little less than I was making in Ohio, but our bill were cut by more than half when we moved. And for the best part......i'm working right now, and not even wearing pants!!!
  My sister also does it, and I know some others who have been doing it for years. Good stuff, and the flexible schedule is AWESOME!!
