The Pub / Re: Snowpeople
« on: February 25, 2010, 06:11:01 AM »
Now that you mention it, I have noticed a distressing dearth of snowmen...I mean my neighborhood.  I tried to toss my son out in the snow that we got but he disappeared since he's only about 2 1/2 feet tall at the moment.  After that he didn't seem all that interested in the cause of reducing snowpeople genocide.

Note to Child Protective Services:  I was just kidding about the tossing of the kid into the snow.

My first thought was that would make for a pretty sticky mash.

Could we get it as PDF download?

It is one of the irons in the fire for the group.

That would be absolutely awesome.  I hate paper.  I'm not even sure where my last issue is at the moment.  I could ask my wife where she put it but it would be a lot easier to go click on my Zymurgy folder and just pull it up.

I looked into getting one of them but the ones that I was finding were for sticking in a turkey or a roast and weren't completely submersible.

I've been on off and on all day and it's been fine for me.

Speaking that out?  I better not have missed it this year!

Yeah, I grabbed a sixer of it about two weeks ago.

Thanks for the responses.  I'm going to relax and not worry about this, which I figured was the answer but I wanted to confirm.

Ah okay.  I'd have to agree that with that cooler it would have been a lot tougher to convert without using the washer.  Once it's done though probably no need to have a spare laying around.  Can't hurt either though I guess.  Good luck with the project.

All Grain Brewing / Campden Addtions
« on: February 22, 2010, 03:31:37 AM »
When you add a campden tablet to water to eliminate the chloramine what are you adding to the water on a net basis?  Just looking around on the web it looks like adding one campden tablet to 10 gallons of water would add 6.7 ppm sulfur dioxide but that supposedly goes away as it reacts with chlorine and chloramine.  So does that mean that the addition of the tablet adds nothing on a net basis or are there some residual mineral additions that should be taken into account when building your water?

I know that the common convention is that one tablet should be added to 20 gallons of water.  Is there enough of an impact that only half a tablet should be added to 10 gallons?

Did the conversion process not go well?

Looking at the Coleman website it looks like you can buy a replacement drain assembly for a variety of coolers here:

The model number for the 70 qt coleman xtreme starts with 6270 which is one of the lines that the Product # R5214D607G drain assembly says it fits.

I haven't ordered from the site and I don't know for sure that this is what you're looking for but it sounds promising.

Like I said, it's an affectionate name.  I've been drinking Yuengling since, well since before I was supposed to be.  I love that I can get it in the grocery store where I'm at.  I have a 12 pack of the lager in the garage right now.

When I was in college a group of us sent a condolences card to Dick Jr when Dick Sr passed away.  We got a very nice note and a signed poster back.

As an original native of eastern PA I feel I must point out that it's "Yuengling" or our more affectionate pet name "Schuylkill Sludge"  ;)

I actually read that entire thread.  I'm sitting in class and I'm bored  ;D

I think I'll stick with shaking or the aeration stone.
