Yeast and Fermentation / WLP670 - waiting for something funky

if you still have a butterscotch taste after the d-rest you can pitch a small amount of active kruasen, even a clean fermenting ale yeast, and that will clean up the diacetyl likedy-split (usually). You can even pitch a little starter of dry yeast like US-05 and it should work.

Is the antenna ok?  Maybe Isaac did it in.

It's not the antenna because my small TV works fine.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I chose a recorder like Scott mentioned, the same one in the post above. Fingers crossed it works!

I should buy another TV but I have a frugal wife who won't buy another one until this one is completely crapped out.... that said, the frigging remote went out a year after we bought it. Maybe I can talk he into it... but I have home repairs I have put off for months and it will be difficult to procure new said TV until those are finished. :(

yeah, if you want to increase the brett character and shorten the time needed to pick up the brett you can add some sugar directly to the fermenter. That will speed it up nicely.

Right before the switch to digital-only OTA broadcasts they had an 800 number that old people could call to get a hdtv receiver so they wouldn't be cut off from the world.  Maybe you can find that number and call them... tell them the major fell and can't get up but still wants to watch the Titans lost this Sunday!   ;D

So, I did a google search and looks like they are all sold used or refirbished at top dollar. And you misspelled "WIN".  ;)

That said, I did find this: - looks promising.

Keith, what brand is it? I am having a similar problem with my LG.

Gosh, I can't remember right now. It's not LG. But I'll look and post it when I get home tonight. (I think it is something weird, like, Polaroid. I got it at wall mart - go figure. Could be the same TV though and different logos slapped on it.)

So, for some reason, my 5+ year old flat screen TV will not pick up HD signal over my antenna anymore.  Something in the TV will allow me to switch to other options (video games, DVD player, etc) but when I go to watch HDTV over the airwaves it won't turn on the receiver. I thought about getting Direct TV, but decided not too.

So I considered getting a new DVD player or Blue Ray to run my HDTV through the player instead. But I can't seem to find any description that says it has an HDTV receiver built in on any of the one's I have looked at. For instance, this one:

I really want to watch football Sunday. Any help? Do these things come standard and they just don't make mention or what?

Yep, it will take time for the brett character to come through. Depending on your process it may take several months.

I haven't listened in a few years but there were a few shows back in the day that were well worth wading through the silliness for. And I met Justin and JP at NHC and they were super cool, very personable guys.

Well Major, got anything new pi$$ing you off:)

Actually, this thread has reminded me that I need to get the ingredients for my smoked Chicken wings for Sunday's kick-off! I'm as happy as a lark! ;)

I don't know about the "go easy" comment on the smoked malt. It's up to your personal taste. I say you have to go at least 40-60% for a rauchbier. Personally, I recommend 100%.

As far as Special B goes. I would not use it in a rauchbier. Special B makes everything taste like a Belgian dubbel to me, except in the case of porters and such where the roast character blends the raisin like character of the special B. I would definitely advise not using Special B in a rauchbier if you are trying to espouse the traditional sense of the style.

Have you guys ever had a chance to try the Monchshof Schwarzbier? IMO way better that Kostritzer or Xingu.

I smoke my chicken wings for about 2-3 hours, dunk them in my jerked hot sauce (jerk spices in a butter and hot sauce blend) and then grill them hot for a couple minutes and melt blue cheese on them, then slather them in more jerked hot sauce. And they are awesome.

Re: Buffalo Wild Wings commercial. This is so two weeks ago. We already covered this. I'm too lazy to go back and look it up.
