I grew up in IA.  The screen at out drive in movie would get blown down every year.  Seems like one small town would disappear every tornado season.  I spent a memorable afternoon hiding from a tornado in a church basement after dropping acid....

All Grain Brewing / Re: I'm going to do a decoction, damm!t...

How about setting up a global "decoction day". We can all do our decoctions and then discuss how we screwed them up.
I'm gonna do one this weekend too but for a cream ale.
sorry, i'm out. did a triple decoction this winter on a doppelbock it was my first and last . made a real good beer but was it worth it? i doubt it, as it took over 6 hours maybe closer to 8 if i remember, i try to put it out of my memory. but it did take first place in nebraskas statewide homebrewer club comp.

i've got a few bottles of an iipa that have been stored at room temp for over 3 years and they are still good. if you plan on storing for any length of time make sure of your sanitation practices and don't introduce oxygen at any time.
