Yeah, I didn't think Billy Crystal.  That was the "You look mahvelous" bit.  I seem to remember quien es mas macho also included Lloyd Bridges.

Crystal played Fernando Lamas in Fernando's Hideaway, maybe they did another Quien es mas Macho with him?  I don't know.

Bienvenido amigo.

It's all a little toasty where you are, as it is in the North East US this time of year. Any chance you can score a small fridge to "hide" in the apartment with a controller on it? Put the wort in there at 19-20 C with the yeast separate. When it's all the same temp pitch the yeast and let it ferment. Should be a lot less messy.

usually we got very good condition in temperatures around year, in winter as low as 46 F and in summer we got as max 95 F

As a new brewer i dont have enough equipment yet, and i store the fermentor (bucket or glass carboy) in the closet well in Jan to March cant keep constant temp around 62 to 64 F, Now in summer i put the fermentor in an area wich is 69 to 73 F.
But yes, you're right... i got a have to some way to get control of the temperature.

Welcome on board!

To our neighbor just south of San Diego. I am very jealous of the fine food and wonderful weather in your area.

Did you have  a chance to visit for NHC? If not, it was a blast.

Be sure to try to go to Seattle for NHC 2012. You'll absolutely love it. Beer geeks just like us all over the place.

Congrats on your brewing, keep it up, it gets better all the time.

Keep us informed on your progress!

Prost!

Ey thanks, well... im the one im lucky for living  in TJ, many chances of getting good things in the U.S. and the best part, The nearest home brew store (Ballast Point) its just 30 miles north just crossing the border... so,im lucky from the rest of my country.

Ahhh are you talking about tacos? fish tacos? (that´s what im preparing for today actually...) well as the same as you i enjoyed real Mexican food
Stay away of fake (taco bell hahaha)

Unfortunally, i didn´t  got a chance to assist, but maybe next year.
ill´be preparing bottles for the contest next year in order to participate.

i find QUAFF, a homebrewers club with meeting one day per month in SD, i think a find a good place to be part of it and for learning also

cheers!, prost!
