  1. Haha! I just saw this!!
  2. I’m working on my car and was wondering if this beer hydrometer can measure the density of my antifreeze percentage in the radiator full of water? I tried to measure the density of water in my oil in the engine but it was just too milky looking and I’m thinking I should go ahead a drive it to Vegas anyway!!!
  3. And to add, gonna get off my lazy azz and jot down those dates on the cans so I can get em outta here! What’s left over I’ll throw in the kettle like a potluck stew of creative beer
  4. I finally got a rotation shift at work that allows me to have 14 days off per month when I was originally getting 4 days off per month. Yea it’s hot hot summer, but I’m gonna brew everything I have!!
  5. So does Rick reply or has retirement got him?
  6. I used liquid nitrogen once, had this guy show up in a truck with a refrigerator tank attached. Pulled out this insulated spray attachment and sprayed my fermenter! It exploded and I used the super frozen chunks of beer as a compliment to my beers that I brewed that weren’t so successful. Nice thing about using liquid nitrogen, the metal fermenter exploded too, but since it was so cold none of the metal chunks contaminated the beer! So this is just one of my disaster turned to success stories of life!!
  7. What!!!!??? No Booster!! OMG!!!! I usually add my own concoction booster, 5lbs corn sugar per 5 gal . And depending on recipe, I might throw in 4 oz of malto dextrin.
  8. I know I’m not on here as much, believe me I be wish I had more beer! Oops I meant to say more time. Right now I’m drinking a buzz ball chiller, made in Texas by an all woman company. I’m thinking of putting on a wig, trim the beard down and go ask for a job there. What are my odds of successful hiring because I’m feeling it now! My zodiac sign tells me it’s time to get out of that stump I’m in and grab opportunities now!!
  9. Actually, I’ve used this method for last years Tank 7 recipe that those guys finally released, unfortunately, they have their own trademark on their yeast. I found a yeast that was compatible. I’ve used dycitel rest for a Wheatwine and a few ipas. And tried it out with a kveik.
  10. Your never too old! I’m not just talking about LME either! Even the MRI and the LWP ( liver wurst pie) and MRE and Btw, and the CTA is never too old to consume. Who reads labels anyway??? Uh huh.
  11. I was brewing a chinook ipa last week, must have konked out somewhere along boiling time, somehow I remembered to turn off the propane flame and did quite a few other things before passing out that I don’t remember either. The next day I go outside and frighteningly looked in the kettle expecting everything burnt, nope! There it sat ready for yeast pitching, unfortunately, I do remember during preboil I had 8 1/2 gallons. When I looked the following day it read 3 gallons. So prior to pitching I undiluted the stout version of the chinook with 3 gallons of water and pitched yeast. Another day and it’s ready for the keg.!!! Just a note for you newbies! When I’m Rome do what the Scottish did in 1957 during the condom prohibition days!!

  13. Plus to add, I just got my newest beer glass in the mail!! I loved it so much I bought the “ pair”!
  14. Ok, I’m back and still haven’t got all the dates, but the winter dark ale is pretty old, the cans have not expanded. 2013 is the date I believe, so think of it as an aged aged LME
