Kegging and Bottling / used kegs
« on: April 17, 2011, 10:27:22 PM »
I was cleaning out some used cornies I got . . . some of them are pretty messed up.  Check out this diptube:

Note that the top of the diptube is on the right!  It was so bent it had a kink right near the top so there was no way to pull it out.  I had to cut the top off the tube and pull it out through the lid opening.

Has anyone every tried to remove the bottom from a corny keg?  I have one keg that is perfect except the bottom is missing, but I figure if I can pull the bottom off of one of the thrashed kegs than I can make a whole one.

Beer Travel / San Diego
« on: March 27, 2011, 10:51:16 PM »
Ok, I know I put this in the beer travel section but I'm looking for specifically non-beer stuff in the San DIego area.  We'll be down for the conference Friday or Saturday beforehand, probably spend a day at a beach somewhere and then try to see some cool things.  Not especially into shopping and stuff like that, more like natural beauty, maybe historical places, or just something awesome for whatever reason.  If the cool stuff is near a brewery that's a bonus because we'll hit a few for sure, but its not the focus.  Once SWMBO leaves (Monday or Tuesday), THEN the breweries will be front and center :)

Any recommendations on nice but affordable places to stay would be great too.

The Pub / Japan quake
« on: March 11, 2011, 12:28:41 AM »
 :o

Conflicting reports of 8.4 - 8.9 magnitude.  Live coverage of the tsunami on the news, moving cars being swept away . . . fires burning everywhere.  Bad bad bad.

<edit> Are you hearing the tsunami sirens yet punatic?

<edit2> Wat's worse than a tsunami?  A tsunami filled with flaming debris . . .

Events / Good luck Mike!
« on: February 21, 2011, 12:14:25 PM »
The 2011 Beer Drinker of the Year competition is this Saturday, and Mike Dixon (mdixon) is one of the finalists.  Best of luck Mike!

My friend Phil Farrell is also a finalist, for those who know him.  And hey, I just realized he's wearing a shirt from the 20th anniversary of Big Time Brewing in Seattle!   Best of luck Phil!

James Clark - I don't think I know that guy.  Is he here under some other name . . . ?

The Pub / awk sucks
« on: February 10, 2011, 01:21:31 AM »
Why the hell would awk return a value of 1 when I say

awk '{ if ( $9 == "step" ){ print $9 }}' $mut1 > $out1

and the value in that column is 0?  Isn't this a string comparison?  Why does 0 == "step" ?  Makes no sense.  This fixed it though, after 20 minutes of trouble shooting.  Stupid awk.

awk '{ if ( $9 ~ /step/ ){ print $9 }}' $mut1 > $out1
