Ingredients / Re: Using Rainwater for brewing?

Might not be a bad idea to filter just in case. Not only because of potential polutants but because of bird crap or whatever else was on the roof/gutters. And you'll need to raise your Ca ppms up to at least 50 if you do nothing else for proper yeast flocculation.

You will have to add minerals, rain water will be very soft. It also may pick up some polutants but I'm not so sure that is a huge problem. Greg Noonan advised against using rain water because of polutants.

You just have to take it on the head, and then clean up and move on.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Falcon - New hop?

I was just geeting ready to say the same thing. Falconer's Flight is blended hops. Simcoe is part of it so is Citra, Amarillo and a few more. Nice hop. Aint "Just like Simcoe".

Agree they make some fine beers. But, I'm not sure what yeast strain they use - could it be a house strain? Also not aware of their practice - I betcha they pitch rather cool, in the 60's for instance. Having homebrewed for over 15 years (and now professionally for almost 1 year) all I can say is that for the most part under 70 is crucial for most ale strains, though not all. It is a good guideline to follow. But let your own experimentation guide you. Some strains can be fine if they sneak up over 68-70 (if not ideal). Some may not be as fine as one would hope.

Agree with these guys - clove is often from a wild yeast (or belgian or hefeweizen strain), or bleach saitizer that was not rinsed properly.

While I agree that a chest freezer is the best option for a fermentation freezer...

I'm glad you agree.

All you gotta do is read the posts!

While I agree a temp controlled fridge or freezer is the best option there's no need to wait for Christmas. You probably have a bucket big enough to immerse your fermenter in now and frozen water bottles can't be hard to come by. You can start contrrolling fermentation temps on the very next batch.

I don't know what your problem is..
No problem here. Not sure what you are talking about. I argued back and forth with you is all. You like to argue, I like to argue. I fail to see where it is my problem alone. All I was saying is I agree that a chest freezer is a worth while purchase. But that a swamp cooler will work too, if you don't have the means to to pick up a freezer right now.  Both are appropriate options for the OP.
