I'm brewing an IPA tomorrow and a bitter on Friday. I picked up some Vienna malt for the IPA today from a shop I didn't know about prior to the new AHA LHBS directory being posted.

The Pub / Re: Why hide behind a Alias?

I searched my full name and found a few tidbits of info- nothing too concerning. But did a search on my "alias" and found this: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Euge ::)
You added #2, right  ;D

I like to keep my professional stuff and my hobbies separate, so I have multiple personas on the web. There's one forum I frequent that I wouldn't linked back to me, so it's its own thing completely.

I went through all of them, some of them really had me crying.
I don't think it's the animal being a d!ck there. Probably an older brother ;D

What Joe said about USB turntables. The ones I've looked at all came with Audacity. The pain for me is editing the metadata, not the sound input.

This is great, I found a shop fairly close by that I didn't know existed. Good thing I get paid next week ;D

Vinyl to MP3 is a PITA. I haven't found a way to automate it. I use Audacity to record from the line-in jack, but I have to add all the metadata myself. It's a pretty powerful editor, though. My wife found an old cassette of her grandmother playing piano that I ripped. It was pretty noisy, but Audacity smoothed it out really well.

I like Media Player better than iTunes for CDs. iTunes has crappy metadata, IMHO.

I have most of next week off. I'm making a big starter for a barleywine this weekend. I think. I may brew a bitter as well or instead of. Decisions, decisions.

I like Celebration. :)

Shouldn't you withhold comment until you taste the new recipe  :D

Ain't no Citra.  Can't believe they'd be out of it already...I have 4oz of it that I got from NB last week.  I'll try doing a single hop APA with it to check them out.
Three Floyds Zombie Dust is all Citra and it's a great beer. Hard to come by outside of the brewery, though.

Hopsdirect has released some of their 2011 crop in pellets on their website today. Among those listed... Amarillo, Centennial, Chinook, Citra. Get 'em while you can.

Amarillo and Chinook ordered!! 

Looks like the Citra is gone now. Got me some Amarillo and Centennial.

Shoot, I was trying to be good and not order while I was still at work. That was fast!

Equipment and Software / Re: Calibration brew for BeerSmith 2.0
« on: October 24, 2011, 09:29:31 AM »

One "feature" I will write them about is that in tweaking recipe values the size of the batch sometimes reverts to 5.0 gallons. I brew in a variety of smaller batches, from 2.5 up to 4 gallons. For example, I went into a recipe set to 3.5 gallons, changed the equipment setup, and the recipe was suddenly 5.0 gallons. Also, even when that doesn't happen, and even with my own equipment profile, the calculations for pre- and post-boil seem not quite right.

Not giving up on it yet... just finding 2.0 not as reliable as 1.4.
I've found 2.0 is a lot stickier with your equipment settings. I made a copy of my equipment for smaller batches, which has made things easier.

Your volumes are part of your equipment profile. If you know what you generally get for mash and boiloff, edit it there. I've found it best to create a new profile rather than using one of the out of the box ones. Some of the settings stick, it seems. I think the key setting is to calculate the boil off yourself rather than letting BeerSmith do it automatically. It does some weird math.

No brewing for me, but I'll be spending the weekend in Madison, WI. I imagine I drink a pint or 3. Or more. There's a lot of good local beer to be had in Wisconsin these days.

Hops Direct's site says they're starting to release pellets on Monday, Oct. 24, 2010. I hope that's a typo ;D
