Are no longer being manufactured in the good ole US.

I like these compared to ziplocks for ease of use and this just figures...if I like it, it will go bye bye....

I finally know why I cannot find em any more... I have to buy a case lot and get back to hoarding....I don't have many lunches left to make in my career,
but, I have made THOUSANDS of lunches in my life using this product and Never ever got gastro...anything that can be
attributed to the closure method of these baggies,

Dang it Cap what you going to put your stuff in ???

already on the shelves, and I wish I had left the case I bought to try with the rest of em

I was reading in the past postings and wanted to discuss this issue a little more.
I found this post;topic=343.0;num_replies=11
and got the over 120 day notice so hence the new topic.

If you decide to try to add more  nutrients to the fermentation as the activity of the yeast appears to decline,

How much additional nutrient should you add? (5 gallon Batch)

How should you add it?  Gently stir it in?
Will you see large outgassing? What is the oxygenation risk?

Will it contribute any weird flavors?

I have done this with a Mead and got really fantastic results (thanks Hightest)
I recall that you take a gravity reading and find a half way point...then you make a supplimental nutrient addition.

I have a big Saison at 1.078 and using WY 3711 it seems to be fermenting nicely. Today makes one week since pitching.
It is declining in activity however it still is bubbling forcefully.  I would like to help this yeast finish the job and get a good dry
Saison.  I am using Wyeast yeast nutrients.

Input from someone's experiences greatly appreciated.


I have  wanted to taste this for a long time is NOT available here now or for the forseeable future.

Assistance please..... ::)

Barrel-Aged Imperial Oatmeal Stout.  10.085 ABV a big beer with a big flavor punch!
All the smooth full mouth feel you would expect from an oatmeal stout.
Nice stout roasty aroma.
Then a bit of the big alcohol sensations occur followed by the rum  and then a bit
of the Oak but not much.  The rum barrel lends nicely to the stout roastiness.

No. 3 in their barrel aged series and I would love another but I have no more and
Avery is a couple hundred miles away....

Recommend this If you like Stout, Rum and big beers.

Went so nice!  Kind of had a slow runoff but ended good.

I am putting this on the record so I can have a digital track of this beer.

I put 10# of pilsner
1# of jaggery
3 handfuls of pale choc
2 handfuls of carafoam
1 handful of wheat malt
1# of vienna

Some amarillo (1oz.)  Some Tetnang (.5 oz)
2-3 tbl spoons of large juniper berries (been in the freezer for 2 months just waiting)
some wyeast nutrient and whirlyfloc and added lots of oxygen to
the end wert that rang in at 1.078 O.G.

fermentation has launched using 3711 saison yeast even tho
it is prolly a bit dark for the style...what the is farmhouse ale.

I just had some odds and ends I needed to utilize.

sorry no hydro pix this time...I was under the gun to get er done...

Edit: Starter was 1 quart with about 3/4 " sediment in the bottom of the jar when crash cooled

Brewed in Hamilton Montana...they did a great job on this beer.
