finish pics or it didn't happen....
Is there a place that hosts pics free and won't send me tons of email?  I'm sure there is, just don't know any.
I use Picasa or Flickr but they do not really want you to share pics it this way.
On the other side if you have yahoo or gmail account you are half way there.
I think Picasa has a better upload utility.
There are other services like shuterfly
or you could use file share/backup/sync service like dropbox.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Munich Helles fermentation temp?

I pitched Monday morning and only today (3 days later) I could see strong sign of fermentation.
It is nerve racking.

I might have to start fermenting Ales  ;)

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: 12 oz six pack vs. 16 oz four pack

The question is what would you think of it if you would see it in the store?
I wonder if beer consumers would be receptive to alternative packaging.

I do bottle in both sizes 12 oz as well as 0.5 liters.

I wonder what people think about this.
In my opinion I think that every beer should be serve in 0.5 liter (or 16 oz).
Most of the beer sold in US is sold in 12 oz bottles.

To my liking one beer is not enough and two beers are too much.
What would people think if they found their favorite beer in 0.5 (16.7 oz) four packs instead of 12 oz six packs.

You could do this:

32% Pilsner,
32% Munich II,
32% Vienna +
4% caramunich.

You could skip caramunich if you like.
About 25 IBU
and German Lager yeast.

Currently i am pitching at 46F and keep it there for a few days.
I have to say that lag time is very long and I would consider this as a negative issue.

Pitching at 46F and let it raise to 48F should be just fine.

A walk-in cooler has been mentioned a few times, and I noticed this on ebay:

I could probably cobble something together for a lot less, but this sure looks nice.

That is a neat little product......
That is really nice.

I was banned from buying from them! 
Yeah!  What did you do to piss them off?
Probably just ask a question.

Equipment and Software / Re: Need advice on new system

I personally, do not see a big need to do RIMS or HERMS, other than they look very cool and have a lot of gadgets! 
Advantage of HERMS/RIMS system is repeatability and control in mash process.
They do not need to be fancy and they still can be using coolers.

Fayetteville, NC
Can you put it into "Personal Text:" field in your profile?
This way it will not be lost.
Thank you

I have one temp controlled chest freezer.  I'd really like another so I could have a fermentation chamber and a lagering/serving chamber. 
It is never ending battle.
Once you get second freezer/fridge you will want the third one.
One for fermenting,
Other for lagering and
third for serving

Thank you
