realbeergal wants a TurDuckEn this year.  We'll get some fresh May River Oysters, antipasta, green bean casarole (I'll look up the GF recipe), sweet potatoes (with marshmellows of course) and sweet potatoe biscuits from a recipe I found in Philly.

We come from the Central Jersey area like the Professor, and spent LOTS of time on Long beach Island.  Our old house in Lower Sayreville was under 10 ft water (glad I'm in SC). Family in Woodbridge OK, wind little rain, power out 3-5 days.

 Tom, from what I hear the old shack to the right of the LBI causeway is still there!

Best of luck.  May your fermenters be full, empty,full,empty....well you get the idea. ;D

Only 2 more weeks til my garage/brewery has my furniture out of it and I can brew again!  Assuming I remember how!

I hear there's a guy on the internet who has a site for cheap & easy brewing ;D

There's some Centennials in the freezer just screaming to get out into some hot water.  I think I'll oblige Sunday.

If you standardize on one manufacturer, it's easier keeping any repair parts on hand like rebuild kits.

Sorry, standard supermarket bag is 12 oz, so 60 - 72 or so ounces.

The warm temp may have something to do with it.  IME, cotes does not create a pellicle.  Check the gravity, see if it's finished, transfer to cold under the pellicle, serve.

Rinse, freeze, chop in food processor when ready.  the freezing will break the cell walls and make the chopping easier.  No need to cook.  I estimate you will need 5-6 bags of whole berries.

Planning on brewing an IPA at the SBL Teach A Friend to Homebrew Day at the Savannah Homebrew shop.  Not yet settled on the specifics.  Leaning towards an all Nelson.

The oak I got was a raw white oak board from a specialty lumber shop, not a big box place.  It was untreated.

I don't use it directly in beer, I soak it in liquor and then use the liquor itself.  it takes the guess work out of adding it.

You want to make sure that is not red oak, like the type used in flooring.  White oak is fine.

Metalic could be a sanitation issue.  Suflur will drop with age.  Let it sit thru Feb/March.
