Like any other process, I could see how it would take time to work out the kinks with a new propagation system.

How would a new outfit go about gathering guinea pigs? Even if they offer a free pitch, the amount of money invested in the other ingredients is steep.

Honey/fruit balance is something I struggle with, and their blends are among the best.  Honey/apple/cherry are all everpresent and in balance.

fridge to glass to mouth in 5 seconds = great.  Once it warms very much the sweetness/balance is off for me but that's just personal preference.  just measured it at 1.027 or 28 at 61F.  I now pour a few ounces at a time into a glass and keep the rest stoppered and ice cold in the fridge.
Kegging and Bottling / Re: Gelatin fining

I've never noticed that with gelatin. I wonder if you maybe got the gelatin a little bit too warm when you heated it and some of it congealed a bit. I use this procedure and get good results every time  :

I was hoping you'd see this. It's cool that the local guy is going to try a local guy.

Yes, I would like to do some test batches with some of their lager strains. But having heard of s3ome of the bad yeast many small breweries were getting from BSI, it makes me nervous to jump ship from the tried and true.

Also, no one from the company has bothered to contact me yet.

BSI has been around for some time right?

Other Fermentables / Re: Servomyces as yeast nutrient in mead

Are you comfortable with using DAP? I honestly think the specific yeast nutrient in the staggered yeast nutrients isn't critical, but the DAP is a requirement.

I recon we should move away from this topic, seeing as it is in the bylaws of the forum to not talk about race, religion or politics. I realize I have been a contributor but if we could steer away from the topic now I'd appreciate it.
Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Just say "no" to yeast rinsing
« Last post by ynotbrusum on Today at 06:30:20 AM »
I rinsed ~1 cup of slurry with 2~ cups of autoclaved(15 min at 15PSI in a pressure cooker) water about a week ago.  do you think using this is a bad idea?  Its a first gen slurry.

I personally believe that that yeast rinsing serves no useful purpose.

Agreed.  I just repitch slurries and let the yeast sort it out, figuring that in most fights at the microbe level the yeast will win.  Be sanitary, of course, but let them stay in beer and don't mess with them otherwise.

I am often shocked by the casual racism I have witnessed here. People say crap that they don't even think is inappropriate. I have heard my neighbors call the Asian international students "chingies" and the Sikh and Hindu "habeebs" and "a-rabs"

Every generation is getting better. My grandparents were awful.

This is not a problem that is only in the south.  After 9-11 many types of racism came out because people thought it was ok to Hate everyone when a small fraction of a certain populace decided to commit an act of terror.  In my mind Racism because of hate is deplorable.
The Pub / Wireless router suggestion
« Last post by BrewBama on Today at 05:48:34 AM »
I don't think you need a new router -- just an adjustment.

I also live in the boonies (East of HSV - over Chapman Mnt-North of 72) for the same reason you do. Likewise, I was having problems with my laptop dropping from my connection. My brother - the software engineer- went into my router settings and changed something. I haven't dropped in over a year since he did his voodoo magic.
