Good to know.  Might have to give the one I have a try.

That actually looks tastier than the octopus in the Ethic cooking thread.

Did you just run the probe into the mash?  Was it fairly accurate?

Anyone have any success with using something like a roasting thermometer with a probe that goes into the mash?  I don't think the one I have is fully submersible.  It'd be nice to have something that sits outside the mashtun and tells you what the temp is inside without having to open it up.

Just finished my second shoveling.  Pulled about 10 inches off so far.  Thinking about just drinking and shoveling all night and sleeping tomorrow.  I hate the thought of having to shovel a foot or two all at once.

Denny's setup is the way to go.  Maybe add a fancy ball valve into the mix  ;)

I got a 70 qt coleman xtreme on amazon for $36.  I  just checked that site and they don't currently have a good deal on them but I'm sure they will again.

I used these instructions to convert it, which were posted in another thread:

Works great.

If you want to spend some of those bucks to help you with an all grain setup the mashtun would be a good first step and then maybe a bigger brewpot so it's less of a hassle to do your boils.  Also, with a bigger boil you'd want to think about a wort chiller.  Out of those the pot is probably going to be the most expensive.

I was thinking about buying bottled water and snow shovels and setting up a stand on the street corner.   :D

Yep, Fairfax County canceled schools for tomorrow as well.  My wife's a teacher in Fairfax County and if we get that much snow I seriously doubt she'll be going to work at all next week.  They just don't have anyplace to put it.  I actually enjoy seeing that much snow fall but that's tempered by my complete lack of enjoyment in shoveling it.

Latest forecast for the DC area is 18-24 inches but they keep adjusting it upwards!  My back still hurts from shoveling out the last snow we had. >:(

Yeah, me too.  I wouldn't be surprised if this one dumps three feet on us.  The whole area will be shut down for a week.

They're calling for 18-24 inches here but I'm getting a bad vibe that it might be somewhat more than that.  They've been under-predicting all season.

So we should eliminate incentive pay in all forms entirely?  You should show up for the job you were hired for, and no matter how well or how poorly you do it you should be paid the agreed upon wage?

Edit - And in the interests of "This is a home brewing forum" I'll bow out of this discussion.

Do you go to a restaurant for the service? No, you go for the food.


Service is an important part of the dining experience.  Yes, the food is the most important part but the quality of the service can make or break the experience.
