The Pub / Resume?
« on: March 01, 2010, 06:35:43 PM »
  Looks like I will be in Idaho the first week of  May. I need to start getting some resumes out. How far back in my employment do I need to go? I have had a LOT of jobs. I was thinking of using my last two, maybe three. That would be about 10 years of history. sound reasonable?

The Pub / The deed is done.

House finally sold. The buyer wants us out in 30 days, but we are working on that. Not like we're moving cross town. My buddy who is a truck driver said he would move us when the time came. Well, his ruck is in the shop now, dropping a new engine. As of now, we are trying to scramble some more coin to hire movers. Sure would make things easier. If I drop off he board for a while, you'll all know why. See you suckers in Idaho! (or am I the sucker? LOL)


Ok, so not 100%, but things look real good that once I make it to Idaho, I'll have a job a Portneuf Valley Brewing. Sent some e-mails to the brew misstress, told my story, and begged. She said she would really like to meet me and talk when I get there, and in the meantime, send some samples to her. Cross your fingers for me!

   So, I started a diet program yesterday. six meals a day, smaller portions, a protein and a carb. Drinking tons of water. ONe gallon plus per day. I'm hitting the tread mill, and weights. I started at 235, and My goal is 215. I'm happy to say, I've already lost 4.5#. I know a lot is water weight, but it's still cool to say I lost 4.5lbs.
   Cool thing is, the plan I'm doing gives you a "free day". So, Sundays I can go nuts, and even hit the taps. Wish me best, my brewers.  8)

Commercial Beer Reviews / Double Bastard

  Had a bomber of it tonight. I was just not really feeling it. I could taste to much alcohol, it was to carmelie, and nor hoppy enough. But, that's just one losers opinion.

Kegging and Bottling / Do I have a kegging issue?
« on: February 06, 2010, 09:48:01 AM »
  Someithing just hit me last batch I kegged......When I rack, the hose I use does not go all he way to the bottom of my keg. It lays up against the side about halfway up the keg. So, as the beer comes out of the hose, it hits the side of the keg, and fans out to a stream about 4 inches wide. I'm just inviting all sorts of oxygen in here, aren't I?

Yeast and Fermentation / Going to rehydrate
« on: February 06, 2010, 09:24:51 AM »
  I'm gonna brew a bitter today. US-05 is my good ole' go to yeast. Quite honestly, my palate cannot pick out big differences in yeast. Yet. So, I just stick with 05, because I know it. I'll have an OG of 1038, so I am just going to pitch one pack. I've nver rehydrated before, but after to listening to some old "Sunday Session" podcasts, I think I am going to try it, and form my own opinion on he idea of it. Worst that can happen, is I make beer.  :D

The Pub / Yay for the Droid.
« on: January 26, 2010, 07:57:11 PM »
Got a new Droid Eris today. I downloaded an app that lets me scan a bar code on a bottle of beer, using the camera lense. The phone will then give me a description of the beer, IBU, SRM, etc, and tell a little about the brewer. It also tells me what food to pair the beer with. Is that totally unnecessary on a phone or what?  I LOVE it!!!!

The Pub / I HATE dentists.
« on: January 20, 2010, 01:59:44 PM »
  Just gotta vent, dudes, so bear with me. I'm 32. Never had a cavity, or any dental work. Last time I was at the dentist, I was 16. So a few weeks ago, I find out that my Union dental plan was still in effect, even though I dropped out the the Local 33 almost a year ago. So, I decide to go in for a cleaning.
   Get my teeth cleaned, and x-rays. Find out a have a cavity in my back molar, and two wisdom teeth have to come out. Fast forward a couple weeks (last tues. to be exact) And I go in to get them yanked. I had to be knocked out cold I was so freaked out. That was some good stuff!!! But, that's a whole other story. Dentist yanked two wisom teeth, had to dig for one. Well, I have a slight case of TMJ, it never really bothers me, just some mornings, I cannot get my mouth closed for a while, and my jaw pops real loud when I chew.
   Now, after the teeth yanking,  my jaw is killing my, constatly, and it pops every time I open or close my mouth. This really blows, and dentists are off my list. (this also explains my infrequent posting. That and the Batman video game  ;D)

   I'm not saying anything is going on here, but if there were some changes even made at "Brewery 'de Weaze", and some whiskey were to be made (un-distilled of course  ;) ) where would a guy such as myself find a good mash recipe?
  And for emphasis, I'm not saying anything fishy is going on here. (yet.  ;) )

General Homebrew Discussion / Black IPA done.
« on: December 11, 2009, 06:40:34 PM »
   The beer is done and carbed, and came out great. The roasted barley seemed to take away the citrus of the all Cascade hop bill. A good beer, which will definatly be brewed again, on purpose next time.

General Homebrew Discussion / Help me find a pic.
« on: December 09, 2009, 04:54:05 PM »
  I'm looking for the picture of the three German beer maids, holding the big steins, to put on my brewery laptop. If you have seen the pic, you'll know exactly what I am talking about. Thanks!

General Homebrew Discussion / Just had the best brew day!
« on: December 09, 2009, 04:37:54 PM »
   Got home from work early. I decided to brew. This was the BEST surprise brew day ever! Hit all my numbers spot. Got a new routine down, I was done, pitched, and cleaned up in 3 1/2 hours. No mess, or no water spilled at all. And the best part, FINALLY.....I whirpooled again, and after reading some advice on here, I took my IC out. Gave it a good whipping with my wire whisk, and let it sit about 5 minutes. Instead of using my valve to drain the kettle, I used my siphon. When it was all done, there was a beautiful pile of crap, about 6 inches around, and three inches high, right in the middle of my kettle. It brought a tear to my eye. So, thanks everyone for the help. Could not have done it without you.
  Oh, I should also mention, that with my new IC, I went from boil, to 58*, in 9 minutes!! And, I am now consistently hitting 80% effcy.

The Pub / Hockey night!

  Just got home from a Pens game. Was so stoked I had to tell someone. Pittsburgh downed the Rangers 8-3! Evgeni Malkin pulled off a hat trick, and played the second best game of his career! It was awesome to be there, and be part of it. Attendance was just over 17,000. The 131st sell out game in a row. Was very cool to go to one last game in the old Igloo, before next season.
  Thank you for listening. Now back to your beer.
