That happened to me last winter with a russian imperial stout. Between a boil over and overflowing fermenter, I lost about 2 gallons. At least cream ale costs less.  ;)

Dang, that would be awesome. Or a swim up all you can eat pizza and chicken wings bar. Like Izzy's

They'd need one of those skimmers they use to clean up oil spills

I am in Philadelphia now.  Already knocked out two new breweries (yards and evil genius) that I have had at least one beer from. Any place I should stop by, and/or anyone else drinking nearby?

Nodding Head is within walking distance.  The owner is the keynote speaker.

It may not be a lot, but nobody is going thirsty at THIS meeting.

After 440 batch sparged brews, I've reached the conclusion that it just doesn't matter all that much.  I sparge with water anywhere from 180-200 F and that gets my grain bed into the upper 160s.  That's good enough.  If it's lower than that, it doesn't matter.  If it's a bit higher than that, it doesn't matter as long as your pH is OK.
I do what Denny says.

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.

Gonna try to make one of these
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.

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.
