I vaguely remember reading something about 'rule of thumb' originating with brewers as a means of quesstimating temperature before thermometers.

On the Brew Masters show, Sam Calagione says "Rule of Thumb" came from the brewers using their thumbs to test temperatures. I don't quite buy it, but it's okay as an explanation.

True or not, makes sense to me

Got a call from my son last night.  He shot his first 300 game in tenpin bowling.  40 yrs I never did that.  He's so proud that he beat dad, and dad is very proud also.

Doing a Club Brew Session at a member's home on the May River to show some of the newbies all grain.

Tomorrow is a Rye IPA using some Carabohemian in the grain bill.

we're thinking about priming with pure rosemary honey instead of sugar, but I don't know. how does it work with honey? ???

My experience with honey has been to use 1/2 the amount of priming sugar.

Also, did 10 gal Bells 2Heart clone this weekend while "training" 2 new all grainers

Water chemistry aside, you could cap the mash with more specialty grains for your small beer.

Check with some of the guys in the WHALES n Woodbridge.  I know a few travel up there from your area for their meetings.  Maybe they would like to start a club down in your area.
