2 - Will it be available in the Amazon store for Kindle Fire?
We're looking into whether or not we can get the Android version in the Amazon store.  Amazon does not make it easy to add new apps to their store.

I gather that the browser that comes with Kindles does not play well with eZymurgy, either.
I guess it is an app that provides reading content - sort of competing with Amazon's core market.

Just start with 3" foam though. Cut it easily with an electric carving knife.

In terms of American Light Lagers, Yuengling is the new Coors (reversing the east & west coast, obviously).

That's funny because I often drive cases of Yuengling up to New England and return with cases of Narraganset.

That's what I meant by Apple store, it should work with iWhateverAppleDeviceYouUse.  :)

1 - This made me laugh.

2 - Will it be available in the Amazon store for Kindle Fire?

As others have said, it's a situational type thing.

I think it is a great idea. But I also think shots sold in ketchup-style packages would be revolutionary...

Strung together like Zots so you could wear them around your neck, and glow in the dark so it would be bonus trippyness

Man! Add a pretzel necklace and we're talking self sufficiency!

Also, in a trademark lawsuit you must prove that the infringement caused customer confusion with your product and damages. That would be hard to prove if you're not actually in business under that name.

Yes, paler malts will have more DMS than less pale base malts. Heating during malting drives out DMS precursors and pilsener is heated less than regular 2-row. I think 6-row also creates more DMS than 2-row.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Hot Side Aeration

I used the paint stir drill method yesterday to chill the wort on a cream ale. I didn't run the drill as fast this time, no froth at all until it was below 100°. It still dropped temp very fast. I didn't time it but guessing less than ten minutes from 210-80.
Sounds good. You don't need much movement at all to speed up cooling.

Two problems with this are that DMS is constantly being created when boiling wort - and you'll never boil 100% of it out. There is good info here.

I'd just move aroma additions later - even after flameout.

General Homebrew Discussion / eMagazines for Kindle Fire

So I got a Kindle Fire and there are exactly zero homebrewing magazines available for it. Just sayin', there's a market here. Someone should fill it.

I use a white RV hose connected to my brew stand, which has one of these filters on it with a carbon cartridge.

You can also remove chlorine by adding a campden tablet to your water and letting it sit a while.

This might help. Definately looks like a nutrient deficiency.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: using half of a white labs vial
« on: June 16, 2013, 05:28:48 PM »
You could make a 1L starter and add it. Let it ferment and stick that in the fridge when done. That would keep it healthy.  Might be fine as is, not sure about that.
