Running is bad for your knees and joints.  I wouldn't recommend anyone doing it.  But start very slow and work your way up.

I have an orthopedic surgeon that will agree with you 100%. He told me the same thing. He recommends walking briskly over running.

All the research that is out now suggests that running improperly certainly is bad for you. But running properly actually extends the life of your knees and joints. You orthopedic surgeon probably has seen many cases of bad joints and knees from running over the years - but I betcha he doesn't really know a things about actually running.

You also might want to send him this link to a simple google search:

That's bull sh!t BTW. Running improperly is bad for your joints and feet, but running properly over long term actually reduces pain from arthritis and strengthens the bones to prolong activity into your elder years. i used to run 6 miles a day for 3 years and never had a permanent injury from it. I only gave it up when I started my own business because I couldn't hand;e standing all day and putting miles on my feet on concrete.

There's a pretty good artical in Men's Health this month on beginning running. I used to run 30 miles a week, now I do hiking and trail running 3 - 5 days a week. Running and standing on concrete floor all day long didn't agree with each other, least not with my feet.

My thoughts are, I don't think that book is outdated at all. It is a thoroughly written book on the process of brewing traditional german wheat beers. It's also probably the best book in the series, along with his Kolsch book. The bock book is pretty great too.

That said, I do believe you can single infuse hefeweizens (or any wheat beers) but you might have problems with a gummy mash if you don't break down the beta glucans. It's not as much of a problem for homebrewers with a 10-20 lbs mash, obviously and can be worth the risk of simplicity by simply doing a single infusion. I do personally think the beers tastes better with a step mash (starting with ferulic acid rest) and double decoction though.

Ingredients / british pale ale malt vs american 2 row

The difference beteen English biscuit and American cookie is the sweetness. Whatever the hell you want to call it it is two completely different things.

Just keep the grain dry and sealed until use and refrigerate the yeast and freeze or refrigerate the hops and you should be good.

I used to fish a lot. Did a good bit of fly fishing too. Then one day I realized I f##king hate fishing, so I quit. Been happy ever since.

Crisp and Thomas fawcett are the only Maris otter malts I've ever had that I really got a distinct flavor from. Both of them are floor malted, maybe that's the difference.

It's more than the "one leaf" thing. I think one bag is about 20 grams or so. The quality is top notch, fwiw.
