At least he's been to a super bowl. Think Tebow will ever be in one completing 1 pass per game?  ;)

The only reason I didn;t keep the BS going is because Blatz is one of my oldest and truest invisible friends.  :P

If I was a Jags fan, I'd be invisible too  :P

( ok...cue the "Wah! The Patriots are cheater posts.  Wah!! )  ;D

Now that was funny!  :D

Wow Keith I'm a little offended by that.  I'll post print screens of my in and outbox messages so you can see what we both said.

Sorry, man. Don't get offended. I didn't say "who" was doing the BS'ing. I remember perfectly clear that the bet was a wash.

ok - nuff said.  back to football!

Let it be known here forth: The official rules of the OFFICIAL AHA 4M's NFL BULL SH$%^&TER'S THREAD is you are not allowed to get offended!  ;) That's why it's a BULL SH$%^&TER'S THREAD. It's all just BS anyway. The only reason I didn;t keep the BS going is because Blatz is one of my oldest and truest invisible friends.  :P

Beer Recipes / Re: Munich Dunkel Question

You might consider dropping the caramunich, especially if you are using nearly all dark munich. I could see the recipe being really good the way you have it, though.

You water may have changed and your pH may be off so that you are not getting a good hot break. Do you check pH?

just for the record, I checked my PM mailbox and the bet we agreed upon last year stated that a 1-1 split resulted in a wash/push. 


Wow! I guess this really is a Bull Sh$%^&ter's thread.  ::)

Going Pro / Re: Brewery Mechanicals

I thought I would start a thread on how your brewery works. I've been in the trades for a long time and own a mechanical contracting company. We do steam boilers, HVAC and plumbing.

First Equipment.  When you get ready to start building a brewery is to know that what you use at home. Your not going to be able to use in the commercial world. Just because it works in WA doesn't mean in MN you can use it. The local inspectors will tell you what you can and can't do. They tell you what goes on, you tell them nothing.

Second. You get what you paid for. That really cheap boiler from south of the boarder isn't going to work when it comes off the ship and will take more time and money to fix than a new one.

Third. Contractors don't work for free and neither do their employees. Just because you want to work for next to nothing doesn't mean the guys welding the steam header do. It costs a lot to run a business, much more than you think.

Forth. Engineer, hire one if your building from scratch, the best way is to buy a complete system from a dealer. One that will provide what we call as shop drawings i.e.  schematics for piping and electrical.

Good Luck!

+1 - and I totally agree with the Forth one as well. A good engineer also knows about local regulations and what the inspectors will give approval to. You actually end up saving money in the long run.

I've done three festivals so far. Every one has been exhausting, overwhelming and fun as hell. Just did one Friday night in Birmingham, AL. Have had great feedback at every event. It's really cool to have a line of 50 people waiting in line to sample your beer.

Well, admittedly I didn;t bother to look at your calculations but it certainly doesn't make sense that keeping 60-80 gallons of water hot constantly is more efficient that only heating a small amount of water when you need it.
I thought about this some more, and the only thing I can come up with is the efficiency of the heat transfer from the burner to the water.  It must be more efficient in a tank than a tankless, so even though you save energy by not keeping water heated, you waste energy by not transferring as much heat of combustion to the water.  My best guess.

All I know is that I went from ordering gas nearly 4 times a year to 2. Huge savings. Another thing that hasn't been mentioned, the THWH have a much, much longer life. The guy who installed mine said that as long as you do an acid flush one every couple of years it can last indefinitely. Don't be surprised in another 5-10 years to see one being forced down your throat. They've switched them almost exclusively in large parts of Europe due to the massive energy conservation (up to 50% from what I have read) and they are going to start pushing them here very soon.
