All Grain Brewing / Re: Mash Efficiency Problem
« on: September 13, 2013, 10:31:40 AM »

Guy at my LHBS told me one trick could be to collect first runnings, raise to 168 in kettle, recirculate those, then batch sparge one final time with sparge water to get final volume up to 6.7 gallons to get efficiency up better.  Does that sound like a useful exercise as well?

Maybe this would help, but it really sounds overly complicated. I always come up with ideas like this on the spot - but then my wife rolls her eyes and suggests something half as complicated and twice as effective.

I'm sure the more heat the faster they degrade. Sandwich them between two scrap windowscreens and set up a box fan blowing on them.

I don't see any ambiguity whatsoever.  I take "resiny" to mean...

I'm not sure if you're serious or if this is meant to be a joke. If it's a joke, I like it. If you're serious, look up "ambiguous."  ;)
I'm confused, that description sounded fairly specific to me?

I have a hobby that involves the next step after the fermentation process, but we're not allowed to talk about on this forum.  I find this pretty amusing because homebrewing used to be illegal too, until homebrewers worked hard to have homebrewing made legal. 

This other hobby suffers from erroneous myths that are repeated by many out of ignorance of the subject.  The hobby is involved in a new craft renaissance on the commercial level.  Take my word for it.  Doing it a home will become as common as homebrewing someday, once again.  We just have to overcome all of the BS myths that surround it.

Don't tell anyone, but this hobby is actually legal in Missouri. Federally no, but on the state level, yes.
I didn't know that.
I was at a friends house who's opening a craft distillery when he was 'planning' recipes. While seeing the process, I felt like 'This is it? This is illegal?' It was like I'd just found out soap was considered dangerous. 
And in other news - I do have a small seige weapon hobby.

I am always having trouble with login.I get locked out trying to log in on multiple tries.they should not have this feature.I just found out that my password for login on the asso. is different then the forum.why would your password be different.This makes no sense.If these issues can not be changed I would like to be logged in all the time .Is this possible.The forum has been very difficult to use and of no value.Will they ever bring back Brew Talk Email,i never had problems with this and it came to me,I miss it.  Steve Dohm
There are separate passwords for the AHA site and the forum, which is weird. But I entered the same username and password for both - problem solved. If you click the 'login' button at the top, the page it brings you to has an option to stay logged in indefinately.

Thanks again everyone, and I'll do my best to not repeat thread topics.
Nobody hear gets uptight about that like on other boards. Maybe they don't have enough beer.

Other Fermentables / Ken Schramm petition to change TTB definition of mead
« on: September 12, 2013, 06:13:57 AM »
I just came across this. I must say the current rule must have been written by someone who doesn't understand mead.  It would be like forcing a brewery who makes fruit beer with malt extract to sell it as wine.

A 12 point, deep socket has always served me well.


The answer lies within.

My internet connection is so slow I con't use Amazon Prime, Vudu, or most streaming services.  Netflix works for me, but only because they can scale the quality to my internet speed.

So you get 480i in black and white? ;)

Denny watches all his movies in 8-bit. Here's Star Trek -

What about "dank"? Does this reefer to the precursor to bong water?


If you look around here you'll find other threads weighing the merits of refridgerators vs freezers as fermentation chambers.

Other Fermentables / Re: Using Stevia to Sweeten

I added mine when I kegged.  If I added it after carbing, I would add to the keg, put the lid on quickly and purge the headspace a couple times.  Then you could mix in by tipping the keg back and forth several times, which would avoid the excessive aeration of stirring in with a spoon.
No reason you shouldn't be able to stir with a long spoon after carbonating. Stir gently and you won't loose much CO2. As a bonus, the high partial pressure of dissolved CO2 will keep O2 from dissolving in.

The Pub / Re: Another Beer Name Lawsuit - this one Utter BS
« on: September 11, 2013, 08:14:08 AM »
Yeah, NOLA is clearly trying to benefit from the Godzilla name. He says he never heard of Toho, which means he never researched the trademark. Toho owns both Godzilla and MechaGodzilla. It's kind of a parody though - and an awesome one too. I wonder if it would qualify as fair use - probably expensive to find out.

We went backpacking in PA once. Great view from the campsite of flashing lights and sirens all night in the valley.

Not sure how it's different than a FoodSaver with the canister accessories.
