    Stick on Thermometer

    No, I have the 6 gallon Mr Beer fermenter that is plastic. As for pointing it to a glass window for temp loss check, haven't tried it, but I would vote a low an angle as possible

    Stick on Thermometer

    $10 aquarium thermometer? Sorry, but for the money, I have this https://www.walmart.com/ip/LCD-IR-Infrared-Temperature-Gun-Graden-Contact-Thermometer-50-330-58-626/124410397?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=12117&adid=22222222227162835839&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=277803106526&wl4=pla-463341585048&wl5=9014253&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=117089218&wl11=online&wl12=124410397&wl13=&veh=sem you can take multiple shots of any LBK or other fermenter, plus shoot at windows, doors, and refrigerators to check for cold air leaks. And check the temp of grains you are cooking or the boil temp of your hops.

    Finally got my work computer back, and so far it's stable, so I can finally post on the forum. I should be able to make it, and any weekend is fine. All I need is about a 2-3 week advanced notice so that I can make arrangements to be gone for the weekend, and get a hotel room. It would be just me.
  4. @hotrod3539, since your schedule is more restricted than ours, why don't you set the date that we hold this event? I can do just about any weekend, as long as I know a weekend or two ahead of time. @D Kristof, have you researched the beer tour busses?
  5. The reason I suggested early June was to ensure people would have enough time to request off of work, find a hotel and make other travel arrangements. Is there a weekend which is better for you?
  6. It really shouldn't matter who voted for which place. As long as we now know it might be in Cincinnati it doesn't matter if someone voted for a different location, all are welcomed
  7. That's basically up to you, but it would help if we had a full head count of who will or probably will be going. I'm in, and am very flexible on the weekend.

    Adding flavors

    Tell her to switch to wine? Sangria is very good. No offense but she might not be a craft beer drinker. Not to criticize, but let her enjoy what she enjoys

    And 4 or 5 to share together

    Adding flavors

    I'd like to toss in the idea of lime zest during fermentation, as per a recipe or two on Mr. Beer's inventory.
  11. How about someone a few months ago at a nice restaurant told the waiter, "I want a bottle of Bud Light, and don't bother with the glass"

    Here's an Idea ??

    it could probably work. Do a Google Search on Hop Filter https://www.google.com/search?source=hp&ei=tlNKXN6BF8vXjwTwkpbIDg&q=hop+filter&oq=&gs_l=psy-ab.1.0.35i39l6.0.0..3905...1.0.. and you'll see that the idea is in active use. For the most part, not to the scale of the 2 gallon LBK's, but it could be useable for non-recipe 2 gallon batches where you don't have a hop-sack that comes with the recipe. yoder. Oh, P.S. Just a quick note that I saw a correction on this forum a while back. There is a difference between "sterilized" and "sanitized". Not a major one, but for the most part, "sanitized" is enough.

    Can you cold crash for too long?

    Or get a third keg, and do one every week

    Creating a recipe database

    First update of the year: - New recipes (up to 199 now) - Clean up some items to fix duplication and make searches more accurate MrBeerRecipes.xlsx
  15. While I'm not opposed to attending a MUG South West meeting in Texas, or a MUG North West meeting in Seattle or Portland, I wouldn't be able to organize one. Someone from that area would have to step up and organize such a meeting. I'm going to have enough of a challenge organizing one in Columbus, Cincinnati or my home town of Louisville. P.S. I'm working on some financial and medical issues right now. Once resolved, I have plans to do a lot of traveling, and I'll add your places to my agenda.
