Lonesome Dove, Comanche Moon, Dead Man's Walk, and Streets of Laredo. In that order IIRC.

We can never prove it's the real Denny. We need a code word for you. Maybe you should sign in as TacoBVDyeast..

Here's my three kids

A fine bunch indeed Weaz!  :)

Do any of them like to hang out...or for that matter are allowed to hang out while you're brewing?

My boys love to be in the midst of it all...

Not really any place for them to lay in brewery, but they do check in on me from time to time. And Harley has been know to drop he occasional duce down there too.  ::)

   Not really a person, but I did have a beer on the 87th floor of the Empire State building.

I love you too, Denny.

You know,  in some countries, we are now considered married.  :-\

Great board. It really is. Gonna be fun getting to know you all.

 If you are looking for a good series, DO NOT pass up Lonesome Dove. This is the series that actually got me reading. Seriously.

    I just got done with "Wild Fire", by Nelson DeMille. Pretty good read, and right now I am halfway thorough Tsar, by Ted Bell.  I've got 3 more lined up after that. Been on a roll lately. I hit the discount stores, and snag the overstocks for 2 &  3 bucks. Beats 25-30 at Boarders.

I typically do 5-7 gal batches. I have a 16.25 gal kettle, and LOVE IT!! One, I never have to be concerned about a boil over, and two, I can still knock out 10+ gallon when I want. If there is not price difference that will hurt you, I say go big. You can still brew a 5 gal batch in it nicely, but have a lot of room to grow. If you pop for a smaller one now to save a few bucks that you do have to spend, then in a year, decide to go bigger, you really did waste a ton on the smaller one. So, if you can swing it, if it's worth doing, it's worth over doing.

Equipment and Software / Chillin' with the Weazle.....

   Sorry about the poor Pauly Shore reference.  ::)

    Today I scored 50' of 3/8 copper for 20$. (it's good to be in HVAC) I'm tossing around the idea of a different chiller design. Most all of us have or have used a typical chiller, stacked. I got to thinking, where does heat travel? Up. So, why not make a chiller more in the design of a spiral, like a stove element. It would lay just below the top few inches of hot wort. As the is cooled, the heat from the lower part of the kettle will rise, while the cooled wort on top falls. Am I onto something? Anyone else try this?

     Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic.... Chiller design.

You got such a big 'ole brain, we'll forgive you for being slow on this one.

I would feel threatened and less confident with that for comparison, but at least Brad Pitt doesn't have my awesome beer powered belly!
I'll put mine up against yours anytime ;)
