I have quick pickled about 5-6 cukes. I'm wearing thin on those.
You can always jar some.  They keep forever, so you don't get burnt out on them.  The cool thing is you don't have to pressure can them, just a boiling water bath is enough due to the acidity.  of course I have a kid who could live on them.  I did cukes and kohlrabi last weekend.

That's what I would do. Not all cucumbers make good pickles.
I've never met a vegetable that I couldn't make a good pickle out of.  Must be the kraut in me.

Another guitar hero gone..... :(

I think you're going to get some nasty headaches fermenting in the 80s.  Get it down to 70s if at all possible.  When I make saison, I start fermentation about 68 F and then raise to around 74 F maximum.  Not exactly sure what will happen in the 80s, but I'm fairly certain you will get a lot of fusels, even with a saison yeast.

No fusels with saison yeast. I typically ferment saisons around 85-90.

I start at 65 and finish at 85-90 using WLP565.  So +1  I get a superb beer using that fermentation schedule.  Dry and spicy.

I have Corian and it seems to be no problem.  And you can sand any scratches out of it as well.

I voted stoopid, but after considering your story, Meteorite White is my pick...

Ingredients / Re: How to best use jalapenos

Wait a second, the best use of jalapenos is to use them fresh or pickled on your favorite Mexican food.  ;)

For green jalapenos, I'll agree with you. Once they ripen, smoking is the best option :)

Hard to light tho... :o
+1 LOL

All my fermenters are full.  Munich Dunkel, Belgian blond, Kolsch, oud bruin, and two lambics.

Picnic tap? You probably shouldn't trust those to hold force carbonating pressures. That's too bad.  :(

FWIW, I use nothing but picnic taps and force carb and there's never been a problem.
Ron lost 5 gallons of RIS force carbing at 30psi I believe with a picnic tap attached.  There is a max pressure for the tap, 15 psi comes to mind, although it's not in stone and I have had mine up to 30 psi before with no problems.

I think it is a fine beer.  Their best IPA/DIPA IMHO.

The best thing to do is read the comments while drinking a pint of that beer to compare. After that, old sheets are mostly good for nostalgia I think. If you are trying to improve one recipe looking at them over time should help.
