General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Olive Oil

  Olive oil is the only way I aerate, and I have great success. I put a small drop right in the fermentor, just before I putch. Love the stuff. Simple, and cheap.

That is the sexiest thing I have ever seen.


No, THIS is the sexiest thing you've ever seen. Awesome tun BTW. What are you using for motors? I'm feeling inspired.

I'm 6'3". I'm not really fat anywhere, except a belly. I think I am going to look and see what I can enter, as far as a marathon, or something. That would be a great goal. Thanks for the encouragement.

   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)

That was our philosophy back in the 60s, too..... ;D


Yeah, so I noticed!  ;D

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: PA -vs- IPA
« on: February 16, 2010, 06:27:21 PM »
funny, I actually notice the exact opposite - more caramelly flavors in PA and more bone dry, hoppy vs. less maltiness in IPAs.



  +1 When I think of the perfect IPA, I think nothing more than 40*L, and dry as a bone. I like my PA's a little thicker, and heavier on the *L.

I use 04 in all my Stouts / Porters. I ferment it in the low 60's, ambient.

That's just it, I didn't rehydrate this time, either. But, that's the beauty of pantless brewing. 24 hour + lag, and I was cool as a cucumber.  ;D

  When you doe in, you need to do a really good stir, five mins or so. Then, what I do is use a digital thermometer, and stir with that. The temp varies by a bit, but as long as it is a close average, I'm happy with it.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Kraeusen removal, what difference does it make
« on: February 14, 2010, 07:16:07 AM »
Would I be able to spoon off the krausen, each day during heavy fermentation?

Curse my pin locks with no relief valves! Guess I could always put a lock on the gas post.
