. It would be interesting to know how much longer it takes for the beer to reach FG.

To my knowledge they ferment in "primary" vessel till it is done 75%. Then beer is transfered into lagering tanks where it slowelly mature and reach the terminal gravity. The log shows 12 Plato beer so it is in the lagering tanks for another 6 weeks or so. The lagering temp is 2C. Beer is also carbonated at this time.

Anyone have one yet? I'm looking at the LG Quantum or Samsung Focus, but I'm not really sure I like either of them.

So... any windows phone technorati here?
Do you feel like rebooting your phone every day?
No, will I have to?
Friend of mine used to have Windows phone (T-mobile carrier) and that was what he ended up doing.
Phone was locking up all the time.

« on: November 30, 2010, 09:05:07 AM »
Just to put you on the price track with six packs.
There is about $3 dollars in packaging.

So put it into perspective If you pay $8 a six pack how much is brewer getting for his/her beer?
$8 - packaging ($3) - retailer ( about 30%) - distributor ( about 30%).
This translate to $1.5 - $2 that is for brewer.
Now subtract rent,
ingredience,
electricity,
water,
natural gas,
brewing equipment.
insurance,
Licensing and permits.

Did I forget anything else?
Ah yes labor.

I am not defending $15 a four pack.
I would never buy it.
Just think about it.

I liked it too.
I would say a BIG improvement from the last episode.

I enjoyed that they tryed to find the traditional way how to
make it and then adjust it to their enviroment.

What understand from the show that traditional Chicha does not have berley or hops.
By this standard it is not beer but fermented beverage.

Don't know the results yet, but since I have a bottle of O2 in my shop, I sanitized a few feet of hose and hung it in the wort bubbling away for about 40 seconds during my first batch.

Is there such a thing as over oxygenating the wort?
Yes there is.
My understanding is that with too much oxygen you get fusel alcohol.
