I'd imagine that you wouldn't impart any of the fusel taste to the bird unless you really brined the heck out of it.  I'm planning on using his brine suggestion/recipe myself this week with some sweet stout!

..could see ziplock baggies being handy in a pinch. 

I like to use sanitized 1 liter seltzer bottles for harvesting yeast slurries...I get to drink the contents plus they are easy to sanitize, label and reuse.  It's also nice to know that when I retire them, I can just pitch them in the recycling.

I have a hate/hate relationship for pedals.

They have too many power supplies and they are just noisy.

I know that most here feel differently but for me they have little or no place in my playing life.

I power my everything on my board from a single source:

Love the ZVex stuff..thanks to a complete gear slut friend, I've had the chance to play a bunch of booteek pedals from Keeley, Analogman, Frantone, MI Audio, Lovepedal, Catalinbread, Toneczar, etc.

...there's definitely a Fuzz Factory in my near future :)

I like the Barber Direct Drive you've got on your board.  Is that an MXR Blue Box next to the Small Stone?

That's a BYOC trem

My next move is to sell off the MD3 and replace it with a MXR Carbon Copy

One interesting facet of this is that Gibson's CEO is also on the board of the Rainforest Alliance...interesting to see how this plays out.

In a statement Juszkiewicz said he "takes the issue of responsible wood sourcing very seriously. Gibson Guitar makes every effort to ensure that all its wood purchases are legal and is also working to increase the amount of wood purchased from certified sources, including FSC-certified wood. The company will continue to cooperate fully and assist our federal government with all inquiries and information."

Hell yes, I'm a member!  :)  It looks like we're on track to finally get homebrewing legalized in all 50 states this year, and although I can't go into details, we're closer to getting homebrew shipping legalized than we've ever been! 

This is one big reason why I am a member.....An organization that not only helps protect my right to brew my own beer but fights to get brewing legalized in the states where it currently is not legal is definitely worthy of my support.

I've ordered from Northern Brewer, Midwest, Austin & Brewmasters Warehouse.  I'f I were ordering something today, Midwest and Northern would be my first choices.

Name: Dylan
Occupation: IT slave/Net Admin
I bought my starter kit back in '91 or '92 and brewed several can kits with marginal to "average at best" results.  Took a break for several years and picked the hobby back up with a vengeance a handful of years ago when I struck on all the fantastic information available about brewing on the Internet.  Been AG for the past 3 years and I'm still using most of the gear from that original starter about a good investment of 75 bucks!  Currently using a 10g round cooler w/ bazooka tube, turkey fryer setup w/ a number of carboys.  I have a two tap fridge and still bottle some batches.  Looking forward to trying my hand at some lagers this winter.  I live in a great area for craft beer and find plenty of inspiration for my own brewing.

Outside of brewing, I'm married (three months!) w/ no kids and enjoy cooking, playing guitar, woodworking, photography, etc...

I did a dark mild on Sunday and I'm about to head out to the LHBS for some odds and ends to brew an APA based off the recipe in BCS.

Hello!  You may or may not know me from other parts of the internets but I figured I'd join since this is quite a step beyond the tech talk list.
