    The carbonation has to come out, one end or the other.
     
    The only thing better than a 5 second burp in front of your wife is to wake your wife up at 1am, cover her head with the covers, and yell FIRE IN THE HOOOOOOOOOLE for 5 seconds.

    Durn.  Was hoping that I could ferment at a 72, as that is the coldest I can keep my apartment without going bankrupt.  Yes, I can use ice bottles.  I might be doing that, but for now, the brewery is closed.  I'd like to experiment on ciders prior to Autumn, so that they will be ready for the prime apple picking season and family holidays.
     
    Someone on the broadcast asked about cider recipes, and I mentioned the recipe database.  I started the thread as "database", but it probably will stay as a spreadsheet..........at least for a while.  It is located here:

    Open the spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel, and with <CTRL><F> do a search on Hard Cider.  There are 8 entries, and the one that catches my eye the most is the Mulled Cider.  I might make this one, but order the mulling spices that come with Yule Like This Ale instead of having to deal with what the grocery store sells.  Carmel Apple, Hopped Apple, Blueberry Apple, and an "apple pie" with grains all are on the list of recipes to attempt.

    Or put it in a secondary vessel with some Brettanomyces yeast and age it for 6 months. The brett will consume the off-flavors as well as the dead yeast cells. It's also a natural antioxidant and will prevent oxidation. Of course, you'd have to like the funky flavors that brett creates (I know I do). It can be an acquired taste.

    Best thing to do now is build a still and distill it into 'shine.

    Has anyone brewed this one yet?  The recipe looks great as is, but I'm thinking of partial mashing it with some Maris Otter and maybe a specialty malt or two.

    Having a great time with @D Kristof .  Noticed on the wall,  they have a dozen Cicerone exam certificates.  All but one are green beer server. One is a true bronze bordered ciceron.  Impressive

    Made it to Northern Kentucky early enough to stip by The Party Source.  Huge liquor store with a very impressive section for pick 6.  Spent too much money,  but got some interesting stuff.  Hanging out now until 11, when Braxton Labs opens.  They have a beer releasing today that is Chardonnay Barrel Aged Hibiscus Gose....gotta try that one.  From here, I will go to the regular Braxton brewery for a flight, then on to the hitel room

    So it looks like this is a go.  To summarize, @scouterbill will be at Jungle Jims on Friday.  On Saturday morning, he and I will met at Braxton Brewery in Northern Kentucky, on his way back home and my way up.  I will meet up with @D Kristof at the event.
     
    I will PM the two of you my cell phone number so that we can stay in contact.

    Well familiar with Jungle Jim's, as I used to live in northern ky, and they are great for purchasing foreign foods.  I know they have a meal at the event, part of the admission ticket.
     
    And yes, I'd rather go stag.
