Kegging and Bottling / Re: Crash Cooling and Bottling

If you crash cool, be sure to disconnect your blow off tube assembly (if your using one).

I made that mistake and turned the temp control to my fridge from 68 to 32.  The next day I went out to check the progress and noticed that most of the carboy neck above the beer was filled with sanitizer that had been sucked back into the fermenter.  Luckily there was such a sharp division between sanitizer and beer and I was able to rack out most of the beer.  Lessoned learned.

  Use a "S" type air lock when crash cooling. They work in both directions.

Is that silvertone a tube amp?

 It is.
  A guy at work inherited it from his grandfather along with a bunch of other stuff. I told him it was worth more if it worked at all and offered more but he only wanted $20. Who am I to argue?

  He also had the Silvertone guitar that went with it. I offer $100 sight-unseen but he wouldn't sell. He wanted to save it for his son :(

 It has written in pencil on the back that it was purchased in 1958 and this is what I was going by. I can't find a serial number to track.

My wife's great-grandmother's frying pan. Must be ~ 100 years old. Slick as glass and an omelet will slide right out.
I've got about a half dozen cast pans but this is my favorite because the sides are a little deeper. Just right for cornbread. Of all of the pots and pans I have this is the workhorse. That and my cast dutch oven.

 Hasn't had a drop of soap in it since we got it about 20 years ago.

I forgot my amp. I've got several Peavys but this is my favorite for acoustic work.

1958 Silvertone 30w. Gave a guy 20 bucks for it :o

Chlorine and/or chloramine.

 A campden tablet should take care of it.

The Pub / Any beekeepers?

  Tubercle has got in his mind he is going to raise honey bees.

 All I know about them is what I have read online and watching youtube videos.

 I'm sure there is a lot to go wrong. Anybody got any experiences to share?

 Tubercle's D-15 Custom Martin - Spruce/Rosewood

 & 1973 Les Paul

 Two of "several". Can't say exactly how many because if Ms. Tubercle knew she would run me off ;D

I racked 5 gallons of it to a lagering vessel using an infected siphon (due to this siphon I've probably dumped about 20 gallons so far). 

Patient: Dr, my arm hurts when I do this.
Doctor: Don't do that and it wont hurt.

  Name's Mark but family calls me Brother. Just turned 50 last week. Married with 2 daughters, 1 son and 3 grandsons. I grew up in a farming family in upstate SC and even though that's not how I make my living now I still enjoy dragging a plow around on occasion. To me there's not much that's more relaxing than bush hogging or cutting hay. I hated it when I "had" to do it. Go figure.

  I have more hobbies than I have time. I enjoy gardening, preserving what I grow, fishing, hunting, cooking and most evenings I can be found with an old guitar sitting on my lap. I enjoy bluegrass and go to a lot of festivals. I play OK myself, I think, and there are a couple of fiddle tunes I can just plain skin the bark off of. Doc Watson, Jack Lawrence and Steve Kaufman are my heroes.

 Reading and studying history when I have time.

  We're just kind of laid back here. The Ms. & I like to take day trips to the mountains and along the Blueridge parkway just to see what we can find. Some days consist of sitting in the shade with a few friends playing music and drinking beer while telling every lie we can think of just waiting for a big ol' pork butt to finish smoking. Exciting, Huh?

  Lynyrd Skynyrd - greatest band ever.

  I started brewing beer in 1987 with a mail order kit as a present from the Ms. and have been re-inventing the wheel every since. I was making fruit wine before then and still make a couple of wine batches a year. I only drink a bottle or two of wine myself and give the rest away as presents; I just enjoy making it.

Atlanta Braves and the Carolina Panthers.
NHRA - Warren Johnson and Angelle Sampey.
NASCAR has gone to HELL since the 3 car is not running the operation anymore. I could less anymore. COT equals WTF.

  I have been accused of concocting a tall-tale on occasion. My court appointed psychiatrist says to not let things people say bother me. ;D

  I just try to find humor in everybody and everything. It's there if you look just right.

 Tubercle - Peace out!

  I've been up and down the east coast from NYC to Miami and on the ocean to the Virgin Islands but have never got to see the Mississippi river. Actually Alabama is as far west I have got. Want to take a dip in the pacific someday.

  An interesting note I have observed: the farther north you travel from SC the more folks start taking sugar out of the iced tea and put it in the cornbread. ::)
