Not true. All airports don't have scanners and if you set off the metal detector, for any reason, you're going to get groped.

That hasn't been my experience. Generally you get a second (and sometimes a third, or fourth, or...) try through the metal detector, and if you still can't figure out what's setting it off they break out the little metal-detecting wand. If THAT is still picking up something, and they can't tell what it is, you get invited to the little room.

How do you feel about run-on sentences?

Me? I find them annoying, but I don't actually see them used all that often. I think most people understand conjunctions more or less intuitively.

I was a solid D student in English and find errors in everthing I read anymore, especially ebooks.

That isn't what "anymore" means. The word you're looking for is "now", or - my personal preference - "nowadays".

I know, there are no rules in English, and things that were once slang are now standard usage, but that one really irks me, and I figured since we're talking about grammar...

2. To keep the dirty laundry hidden, the arrest be done by DHS LEOs, not LEOs from the FBI or another agency.

Baseless speculation. It's at least as likely that they would do everything possible to make an example of him.

Last year's recipe was such a hit that I'm going to be doing ~210 gal of it this year. ;D

I'll need to brew a Helles or something to get enough yeast together, though, so I probably won't get around to my personal 10 gal batch until sometime in June.

Google Chrome has a spellchecker Spell Checker that werks Works with this site at any rate. I haven't noticed if it has a grammer Grammar checker but that could just be because I have perfect grammar. Yeah right. and red tape holds bridge up.

Right, but that's client-side (built in to the browser or OS), not server-side. Like I said, it wouldn't be hard to do on a server, but it would be really expensive in terms of bandwidth, latency, and CPU cycles.

This board has no spell-check.

Are there websites that do? That wouldn't be difficult to implement, but it would be really server-intensive.

Apparently, they'll take Canadians too.  Or at least they took my money.

Did they let you pay in loonies? ;)

Is this date some sort of strange attractor in birthday-space? This makes like eight or nine people I know.

Oh, and have a happy one Drew!

Oh and on another note how do you change the thing that tells you how many times you have brewed bc i am done like 9 and it says i am on the first one and it makes me look dumb lol

At 25 posts it switches from "1st Kit" to "Cellarman".

25: Cellarman
100: Assistant Brewer
250: Brewer
500: Brewmaster
1000: Senior Brewmaster

If you're whirlpooling the wort at the same time (on a 1 bbl system I assume you'll have a pump) you could probably get a reasonable answer by assuming 100% heat transfer efficiency (Newton's Law of Cooling), integrating over the time of the whirpool/chill, and building in a fudge factor of maybe 25%.

Sure, you just need to de-gas it. Put the sample in a sealed container, shake it around for a few seconds, vent the lid, and repeat until no more gas comes out.

I have all the other parts so all that's holding me back is the cooler.
Will this one hold temp and could i get a alteast a 5 gallon 10abv beer out of this.

What abv does 1.100 get me?

That cooler will be good. You'd have fewer problems if you mashed in a blue one, but nothing serious.

1.100 would be an 8-12% ABV beer. A 52 qt cooler should get you up to at least 1.120.
