Great idea.
Also when pitching it would make it very clean.
Thank you

Hey Fred.

May be I was not able to explain what I wanted.

When I click on Denny's profile His email address is "hidden";u=2

But when I look at my profile I can see my email address.
Also Danny does not have any envelope icon under his avatar.
I just picked Danny because he is well known :D

When you check my profile can you see my email address?;u=548

Thank you

People can see my email address when they point their cursor on envelope icon under my avatar.
I would like to turn off this feature.
Does anyone know how to do this?
I already check "Do not show my email to public" in my profile but no cigar.

Thank you

One time I took my wife to Slovak Pizza place.
She is still talking about Hard boiled eggs chopped on top of the pizza.
I thought it tasted pretty good if you ask me.

And when you are in Europe and you want good old hamburger, Mc Dee (Mc Donalds) to the rescue.
Hey they are even open on Sundays!!!

May just be my mother in law. She puts caraway seeds in everything. She never heard of putting celery seeds on cutlets but told me she uses a light sprinkle of caraway seeds. Told me that is what they do there. Im sure it could be worng cause she is a lunatic.

Works great though, adds a nice flavor to your cutlets. 
I knew you had first handed info :D

Keep on cooking!!!

I brew 5 gal batches in the kitchen.
I just build electric HERMS with Ranco controlled HLT.
I use 10 Gal orange cooler and I boil on the NG stove.
My 10 Gal Mega pot is wide enough that I can lid up 3 burners and get about 30,000 BTU from it.
I ferment in fermentation fridge in the basement.

I like electric powered brewing.
You get a lot of control over the process.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: PItch from smack pack or slurry?
« on: November 10, 2009, 04:26:11 PM »
Either way you should use a starter. 5 week old slurry very well could give you problems.

i usually carbonate my beers to the volumes appropriate for that beer. once you've actually got it to that level you can disconnect it and it will stay carbonated indefinitely. [provided you have no leaks.]
I will agree with you.
Once beer is fully carbonated and you do not have any leak in keg, your CO2 level will stay the same.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Malt conditioning rocks
« on: November 10, 2009, 04:12:46 PM »
This is interesting idea. (I mean I have heard about it before).
I mill my grains night before because I brew early in the morning and I do not want to wake up anybody.

babalu87  I see that you condition night before milling.
Could I condition and mill it day before?
Would I have any issue with Lacto Bacteria?

Ingredients / Re: Help me FWH my Kolsch
« on: November 10, 2009, 03:41:13 AM »
I am just drinking FWH and 80 min Halletauer Kolsh.
It is more bitter then I expected but I do not know if it is because of FWH or 80 min addition.
Let me know how it turned out.
28 IBU sounds about right.
By the way when I compare comercial (red label and do not remember the name) to my kolsh I was in ball park :)

As far as comercial beer distri ution is concern a lot of states require three tier distribution system.
In other words you can not self distribute your product.

I brew every other week 5 gal batches and LOVE the process.
I do have issue what to do with all the beer I make :D.
