Hmmm...Not sure how much the transmissions actually weigh.

and arrogant to think that everyone bought his book.
Amen Major. I had a guy ask to come over and see my Brutus system, ask questions and such as he was looking to build his own. He tasted a couple of my beers and here are some of his comments to a tee...Ill never forget because I spent the evening thinking...wow I never met a homebrewer like that before. What a pompous ass.
"Clean IPA very good, but I do this in mine and its better for it"
"Youre better than 99% of the brewers I know"...me:"oh thanks man" him: "Im the 1% better though"
"Ive been brewing for 7 years I know all there is to know about brewing, hes adjusting his water for this reason, but I know all there is to know about water and I dont do it for a reason."
to his gf: "THis is the second best pumpkin beer we've had huh sweety?"....his gf turns her head and takes another sip of mine and says "yeh"
Lol comical. Funny thing was, hes over in MY HOUSE asking me questions about MY SYSTEM, making these comments. Then when he left he said, maybe we can do a collaborative batch or something. Never understood people like this, if you know all there is know, then where is the fun in doing it. Get over yourself.
I don't live that far from Leos and I still haven't tried any of his beers. Bummer!
I'm going to pass through Eau Claire on Labor Day weekend. I think a stop is in order!
Come one, guys. I don't think I have to spell it out any more than I have already. The implication seemed to be that our IIPA was not brewed to his specifications. (It's a 1.083 beer brewed primarily with 2 row, 5% sugar and 5% cara-vienne with a huge amount of centennial and columbus at WP and dry hopped with another equally large charge. At 7 bbls we use 29 lbs of hops before dry hopping. It's also one of our most sought after beers.) All I am saying is, have a little respect for the guys who have put it all out on the line. Try not to act like a "know it all". I think it is safe to say that since I am on this forum and the pro-brewer site everyday that I am not afraid to gather knowledge.
Denny- Do you think it's my mill, or operator error?
When I was dry-crushing the grain, I was getting lots of shredded husks. Conditioning helped, but I was still getting a fair amount of broken husks. Conditioning + double grind gives me mostly intact husks.
