Bohemian Pilsner from last year.  Was still lagering so it had not fully cleared yet.

It was quite the smell.  At first I thought something electrical was burning and then saw Toby's neck area on fire.  Not huge flames mind you, but flames none the less.  His fur stunk for hours.  Thankfully as a Husky, he was fine staying outdoors for a few hours (it was December I believe). 

To all those with young kids - good luck brewing and yes, enjoy them while it lasts.  They do grow up fast.  That said, I love being able to brew whenever I want with no kid obligations.  Now I can just hang out with them and enjoy their company in a more adult fashion.

It looks like Radio Shack has 120V mini-neon lamps - that might be your easiest fix.  I can't tell for sure, but it looks like the assembly may include the resistor internally.

I originally looked at Radio shack and didnt see anything that i thought would work, do you have a part number? Ill grab one and try it out.

Cheers,
Jeff

This is what I found on the RadioShack website: 110VAC Snap-In Red Neon Indicator Lamp

It is not exactly what you currently have but it should work.  This unit is rated at 110VAC so I think it should replace the existing bulb and resistor.  There are other mini-neon lamps in different colors.

This sounds awesome. I am just getting involved in this brewing thing. I am starting to go to school for brewing and just planted my first hop rhizomes. I am excited that I get to look forward to an obsession this fun and tasty too.

One time while brewing, one of my huskies caught on fire.  He was licking the floor after a boil over.  I turned around to see him on fire and quickly put it out!  His fur was singed for months.  He did not care, he got to lick up sweet wort plus he had plenty of more fur to go before that hit skin.  That beer became Burnt Dog Porter.

Now THAT'S a brewing story!

Here's a picture of my Allagash White Clone that was mentioned in the Wit yeast thread as well as the thread on summer beer styles
Notice the snow in the background, nothing like a little winter in Chicago. On April 15th!

My daughters are 22 and 25, so no mishaps from them.  When they were younger, they just liked the smell and being around the brewing, never really interested in the process and participating.  They were interested at a younger age on pouring the beer from the kegerator.  They both learned very young how to pour the perfect beer.

I have no idea, but my guess would be that the content is only licensed in certain countries.

Ingredients / Re: Dry hops Prior to Finished Fermentation

Was Stan's method to simply dry hop in secondary?

I don't think he was really advocating for one method or another.  He was pointing out that dry hopping before the beer was removed from the yeast will produce different results than dry hopping with the beer on the yeast.  It's up to each of us to try it and decide which method is appropriate for us.

I'd go so far as to say it's up to each of us to decide what is right for each particular brew. different results = different tools in the toolbox.
