There's been a hop shortage ever since that year. Not as bad, but still a shortage.

Hey, I did my program run this afternoon when I was supposed to be working.  It was on the treadmill so it may not count ;)

The Mrs and my two oldest (A and E) are headed out to running group right now (she's been doing this for a while).  A and E just got back from swimming practice and they want to go running.  If only I had the energy of a 12 year old.

Treadmill counts! My wife loves her treadmill and I can't keep up with her on the road.

I think it's a big waste of hops for what you get out of it.

I agree. Maybe back when hops were cheap as dirt it was worth it on some level but not now.

General Homebrew Discussion / The Secondary Topic Revisited
« on: April 17, 2012, 12:38:44 PM »
If you transfer when theres still penty of CO2 in the liquid, I think it would kind of self-purge.  I don't think a bucket is going to let in acetobacter, thats not been my experience.  But some oxidation would eventually be possible.

My experience is once the co2 is gone acetobacter gets in wether it's from a dry airlock or a bucket that has sat too long.  A bucket is a bad idea as a secondary from just about any standpoint unless you are starting up a second fermentation with fruit or something.

I transfer my lagers to a secondary bucket after primary fermentation is complete, usually a couple weeks after pitching. I know some people use kegs to lager...but I don't have enough kegs, or at least the discipline to keep a keg as a lagering keg for that long  ???

I'm surprised you don't have problems with acetobacter or oxidation by secondarying in a bucket. I certainly wouldn't advise anyone to secondary on anything that it not air tight. And really you need to purge the container with co2 as well or at the very least the headspace.

If you are completing a 5K in 30 minutes that's a 10 min per mile clip, not speedy for sure, but not necessarily beginner either . Seems to be about the average race clip for most runners though.

I don't think you need a lawyer but it wouldn't hurt. I'm not sure about your state but I needed an ABC license and it costs a thousand bucks or so. You have to register with the TTB. In our case we had to have our brewery laid out with actual photos of equipment in place to get the ABC license.

we also needed to be approved by a city council vote. Lots of other local regulation we had to jump through, we hired an architect to design the brewery and tell us what we were going to need to do rather than have to go back and forth with city. IIt worked, we got approved first pass.

I honestly can;t remember much else.  Contact your state version of ABC and see what they say, that would be my first step.

Absolutely you can sustain injury from running. I certainly never meant to imply that. I have had back issues that crept up every so often during my longest stint of running - all muscular and totally treatable. If you think you will start any physical activity and not suffer some injury from it you are fooling yourself. I've also had shoulder problems in the past from weight training as well as back problems. But there's a huge difference between chronic injuries and temporary ones. And certainly any form of physical endurance exercise can cause a chronic injury particularly if not done properly. But to say "black and white" that running is bad for your joints is pure nonsense. I'm pretty darn happy with my physical state at 42 and I owe a good bit of that to years of running and weight training. I'm not going to hear that someone who is thirty pounds overweight is in better shape for living into their sixties and seventies and beyond because they've sat their asses in front of the TV every night.

I wouldn't regret posting it at all. My only point is that fitness is something I have managed, practiced and researched over twenty years now. I just don't like to see misinformation being propagated by folks based one presumptions. I certainly agree that there is a possibility of a repetitive stress injury from running, especially of you are overweight. But there is that possibility in any type of exercise. I practiced several different forms of martial arts over the years and broke fingers and toes a few times and have seen people break wrists and ankles, but I feel I got a lot more good than bad from that time and don't regret it. I am currently not running, either, but i did for about three years straight and my knees are pain free and I have no joint issues - and I also could eat just about anything I wanted back then and never gain a pound.

Running is not perfect, but it's better than sitting around and cramming pie in your face and watching dancing with the stars every night. And if you run smart, practice good form, wear good shoes (and I recommend getting fitted and having the fitter see you stride in action) and take time off to recover from time to time you can really get a huge life changing benefit from running. And it's way better than simply walking.

I was going to say, because a lot of what you say is totally not true! It's obvious to me that you really don;t know much about  weight loss or fitness.

As far as weight training for weight loss goes, a lot of modern research sugggest that weight training is the most effective way to lose weight (along with a proper diet). It's pretty well known fact. A little research is all you would need to do. Here's a snipped from an article I found with a simple search.

Quote
t's common to associate building muscle with weight lifting and fat loss with cardio training. Unfortunately, by doing so, you're really selling yourself short on potential results that could be seen if you truly understand the intricacies of working out, particularly when it comes to weight lifting for fat loss.

Weight lifting can actually prove to be a very effective method for losing weight, provided you go about it in the right manner. Here is the information you need to know about why you should choose weight lifting to help with fat loss, and how to design a program to get the results you desire.
weight lifting for fat loss
Increased metabolic rate
The first reason weight lifting is a good option for fat loss is because it boosts metabolic rate both over the short term as well as over the long term. In the hours after an intense weight-lifting session you will experience an increase in metabolic rate. What’s more, weight lifting will help you maintain your total amount of lean muscle mass, creating a permanent increase in metabolism.

Cardio training will only cause a short rise in metabolic rate for an hour or two after the session, taking away from the overall calorie-burning benefits compared with resistance training.

Often, overdoing cardio will actually decrease your total lean body mass, so you could see a reduction in metabolism over time working against your fat loss efforts.
Altered body composition
The second reason to choose weight lifting for fat loss purposes is because, while cardio may make you lose weight, weight lifting will help you lose body fat, altering your body composition.

Many individuals who just hop on the treadmill to lose the pounds don’t end up looking much different -- even if they do successfully lose 10 to 20 pounds. This is because they still have the same proportion of muscle mass to body fat; they are just "smaller."

Weight training will help change the way you look completely, giving the impression that you’ve replaced fat with muscle and are actually working at improving your body and changing your body composition.

Weight lifting for fat loss is a great alternative to cardio and will give you better, more visible results...

Hey beersk, in all seriousness, do you keep in shape? How many times a week do you work out? Just curious.

It's not that big of a deal learning to run with good form. when I first started running I did not use good form. when I learned good form I was actually able to run long distances without getting tired.

Humans are made to walk. we are made to walk all day but still, mostly walk. We are capable of running and actually pretty good at it but mostly for short periods, not long periods. Horses are made to run. Long, flexible tendons between 'heel' and 'toe' allow alot of energy to be absorbed and reapplied in the next stage of the gate without putting alot of repetative impact up and down the spine. All the really good running creatures are quadrapeds (okay, kangaroos, but they bounce not run) so the spine is not compressed on every step. We can run, and I know lots of people that run alot and are healthier than they might be because of it. and good shoes can make a huge difference if your form is not picture perfect. but these are all methods for reducing the impact on your body, which if we were meant to run evolution would have taken care of already.

There's a lot of evidence out there that disagrees with you. Again, a lot of you think you know a lot about running but you aren't runners and haven't spent time researching or practicing it. This is like the guy who swears Miller is the best beer in the world trying to tell you that bock is made from the bottom of the barrel.
