Interesting.  Have not seen it yet.

I did try this nooner......  I guess nooner is a SN term for session.   ;)

am I stuck in this dreaded tail for ever and ever?

 ;D...I look back at my notes from when I was doing batch 15..sheesh I have learned a lot since then. 

Lots of good advise here; you may want to add in a few pounds of patience on your next year of brewing.

Equipment and Software / Re: My cheap mod for capturing yeast in blow-off.
« on: December 14, 2014, 06:11:54 AM »
Very cool.  I have always admired the pure and clean beauty of blowoff yeast.
 Is that your experience?... that it is trubless and cleaner than the cake at the bottom of your primary fermentor?

What is the advantage of capturing blowoff yeast?

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Is this kegerator okay?

I always thought those mini fridges with a tower on top
looked a little silly,
but it might look good next to the new futon.

Interesting...any ideas as to why it carbed faster....because the gas entered the vessel via the diptube? 

Pretty cool dad that brings a keg to the holiday party! 8)

Not reinventing the wheel, but it'll be good.

 :) Sounds good!  I find myself leaning back toward old simple recipes these days.   I might try an all Mosaic/MO IPA this weekend.  Anybody have experience with an all Mosaic brew?


I nominate Blatz to start the 2015 What's Brewing this Weekend Thread in a couple weeks... ;D

Hey chumley, just wondering how much cabbage you can put in that 3 gallon crock.  I am thinking that is plenty big?

All Grain Brewing / Re: Critique my IPA recipe
« on: December 11, 2014, 07:05:51 AM »
I think that recipe looks great!   8)

I might add a chunk of Columbus at dry hop as well, but that is just personal preference.

just a constipated green hop poop log

 ;D

LOL.  I guess dryhoping with pellets presents its own special constraints.

Enjoyed the read; love the pictures of the story.

Glad to hear my trashy home techniques are OK.  All my beers are Truby.  :P

 Huh, I was thinking...you mean this place takes moderation? 
All I could remember was the Majorvices locking or moving a few threads...

I think I even missed your annual rant on trashy hunters.  ;D
Thanks AHA.  8)

 :).  I am not your tester.  I would probably tell you "yum, man that is good.  I loves me some hops."

Two comments:


 - Three cheers to the Northern Brewer, who post their recipes on-line.  Classy.

 - Four cheers to the Mashweasel and others who brought the Hopstand into to public realm of homebrewing techniques.  8)
