FYI, I had multiple problems trying to view the feed today.  I tried going in and out a few times, closing my browser and pulling it back up...nothing.  I'm a computer geek by trade, so I know the basics.  Recheck the firewall.  Nope.  Clear out the temp files and cache.  Nope.

 

Gave up.


Tried it again about 3 hours after the episode was over.  Nothing.  Then, I remembered something I used to tell people when I first started in the corporate world on the help desk.  First restart the computer, then power off/on

 

Restart worked.  AAAAARRRRGGGGHHH

 

Although, Now, I can watch back episodes  :D

 

Yoda........going back to Computer Sciences 101

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.
