Well, it doesn't really matter what you or I think. Football is a business as much of it is a game (perhaps more of of a business) and the sanctions are driven from a business standpoint. Plus, they were warned to stop once and they didn't. The NFL wants to minimize injuries from a business standpoint.

Tom, the difference is that if someone gets killed playing football it could have serious negative effects on the league as a whole. The NFL is trying to keep players from having broken necks and eliviate concusions as much as possible. This is just sending the message that this sort of thing wont be tolerated.

As far as Tebows to the Jets this is like Jonah to Nineveh - he's being called but I can't believe he wants to go. I really didn't need another reason to hate the Jets but there you go.

worth 69 million or not.

Not.  He signed for 96 million dollars.  Denny should know that. ;) Disgusting.

69, 96 .... it may as well be all the same to me.

No need to filter, just use finings and cold crash. Biofine clear A3 is what I use and it works like a charm. The beer comes out crystal clear after only a few days. I do agree that in some beers yeast can "muddy" the flavor. OTOH for my IPA I do not use any finings because finings and or filter strips away too much hop flavor.

I make 10 gallon batches, so occasionally filter one keg and not the other. When I've done triangle tests in opaque cups with those beers my tasters consistently pick the filtered beer over the unfiltered one.

No offense, but I am highly skeptical of this as a blanket statement.

As A Thinking Individual, I Couldn't Possibly Care Less.

I'm almost ashamed to say how pleased I am to see this phrased correctly.  Too many people say they "could care less..."

LOL. I thought the same thing. I just remember the old standard sung by Frank Sinatra.

As for the neck, I think that he would know his body well enough to know whether or not it was worth 69 million or not. After all, it is his neck.

Biofine Clear A3 is kosher, vegan, and not plastic (so it depends on how you feel about silica). Bonus points: it works really well. It may not be available in anything smaller than 1 L though. B3 has Biofine listed but doesn't say whether or not it's the A3 version:

+1 - the Biofine Clear A3 works great

I personally hope he sucks.

LOL. No thanks.  :D

Back to the original point at hand, there's no way the small amount of steeping grains are going to give you ten extra points brix. And if you didn't mash the oats it is likely that they would not have given you nearly as many points had you actually mashed them. YOu wort was most likely stratified. And I recommend mashing the oats with a pound of pilsner next time. Really, IMO you are going to make better beer by doing a mini mash with all of your extract batches. For one thing extract is reported to be low in FAN. And you just get a bit more control and it's freakin' easy.

I wonder what will happen to Tebow now. Be kinda interesting if they could keep him on, but I doubt it will happen.

As a Titan's fan I was pretty damn disappointed.  >:(

Starches aside, the real point of the mater is that 1 lb total of steeping grains is not going to give you 15 more points brix in an extract beer. Your reading is off. Possibly due to stratification or, as was mentioned, your hydrometer is off. Or you didn't add enough malt extract. But it has nothing to do with the steeping grains.

Hard to call, but it would have been best to pull off when done and at least refrigerate it.

August 2009! I bought an EPA kit and made my first batch on our old electric stove in a split batch. Still the best beer I've ever made!

I'm sure glad I can't say that!  :o My first batch was so bad I could hardly give it away.

January 1995 a week or so after Christmas (my first kit was a Christmas gift from my mom). A can of John Bull liquid extract, a few pounds of sugar and the yeast packet under the can. It turned out awful but I was hooked.  8)
