Yeah, my immediate objective is simply to have grass everywhere there's supposed to be grass.  It's a little thin out there.

Thanks guys for the info.  When I pulled that sucker out of the box I was a little worried but I'm feeling better now.  Just needed a little reassurance  ;)

Ah, okay.  I was just going by what it said at the bottom of the page.  Didn't realize it wasn't working correctly.

I think the "active" members denote those that have posted.
No,  many of those have not posted.

Ah, yeah, i was using the term active for the number of users that have posted.  You're correct of course.  We have 666 members that have posted so far.

Lately-Daddy Duty

I like: Camping, Mountian Biking, Going to the beach.

I also do a lot of gardening-more landscaping.  Lots of DIY stuff around the house.  Refurbing, replacing, retrofitting, etc. 

Daddy Duty has also crimped travel, but I enjoy that too.

I hear you on the daddy duty. 

I used to be really into backpacking.  Back in the day before I became a corporate whore I was a BSA backpacking merit badge instructor.  Did a month on the AT after I graduated from high school.  I've always wanted to do the entire trail but that doesn't seem likely at this point.

I have gotten very active in trying to maintain and improve my lawn.  Just bought the place we're in now and it's pretty clear the previous owners didn't care much about it.  I have no idea what I'm doing but I'm learning as I go!

Yeah, I read the reviews on amazon before I bought it and they made the point of saying to fire it up outdoors the first time to burn off the paint.  As an aside I was amused that the majority of the reviews I read were from homebrewers.  Generally you read product reviews and still have to make a guess if it was something you wanted to buy.  With a bunch of homebrewers giving it high marks it made the purchase a lot easier.

Guess that begs the question, then, are we going to be able to see our member number?  I want 666

Well as of right now we have 666 active members:

And yeah, if I can brew outside on the driveway I will.  But my brew days will generally need to be planned kind of far in advance and if I have to rely on the weather being good then that'll put a crimp in the plan.

So spray the windex along the length of the hose especially where it's connected to the burner?  I'm not as worried about the carbon monoxide (since my garage is pretty big and with both doors open it should be ventilated enough) as I am about lighting the ceiling on fire.

You have to click on your name next to a post you made to get the number in the address bar.  If you just click on Profile on the menu bar it doesn't show it.  You're 118 Kai.

Equipment and Software / Bayou Burner Tips
« on: November 24, 2009, 07:49:08 PM »
So the friendly neighborhood UPS guy just dropped off my new Bayou Classic SP-10.  I was like a kid on Christmas morning when I opened the box.  However after taking a look at the beast and reading through the manual I must admit I'm a little intimidated, having never used a stand-alone burner this big before. 

The assembly was straight-forward:  Screw the hose barb into the burner and tighten.

Any tips for using it to help me prevent myself from either frying my face off or blowing up/burning down my house and the surrounding countryside?  My main concern after reading the manual was the use of it in my garage.  The manual explicitly said not to do that.  I'll be using it outside in the open air when possible but was hoping to be able to use it in my garage when necessary (with both doors wide open of course). 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I'm assuming that Beer Smith calculates hop utilization based on the pre-boil volume and SG as opposed to the batch size OG.  Is that right?

Sounds like there are some differences of opinion here  :o

Guess I'll have to try it and see how it goes.  Thanks for the advice everyone.  I'll definitely keep the aroma hops in addition to the FWH.  Got this one programmed to brew...well whenever I get all of my equipment put back together and find a day to brew it.  Hopefully soon!

Just joined up again.  I was a member before but let it lapse when I stopped brewing for awhile.
