  1. It's doing it again. I took a photo. No "Community Drain Pipe" sub-forum. None of the posts made in that section since yesterday show up in the right side bar. Weird
  2. Am I the only one that can't see it? ETA: nevermind, it re-appeared.
  3. According to Northern Brewer S-23 will still be good from 61F-66F. It just won't have as much of a "lager" character.
  4. One of the greatest changes to the JTR was the one that allowed alcohol to be considered against your PCS weight allowance instead of as a much more controlled separate shipment. When we left Germany in 2009 we shipped a couple dozen cases of beer, 20 bottles of whiskey, several bottles of German liqueur from Ettal, and about 80 bottles of wine. All that's left is a few of the wines. The beer disappeared quickly... 😜
  5. He'll answer you...in six months.
  6. I went through my share of Budwar when I was in Germany. Good stuff.
  7. Holy s*it, a Hoppy appearance!!!
  8. Why? I'm not the one looking for them. I was simply pointing out that your statement was wrong.
  9. No, he said he hasn't seen them there.
  10. Weird; that's the only LP refill available on the MRB website. Either they do something different for Canada or someone stole or misplaced the carb drops.
  11. The MRB craft refills for those two HMEs come with carb drops but not booster. Their "regular" offerings (such as American Porter, St. Patrick's Stout, etc. ) do not come with carb drops. But the standard refill does come with booster and the deluxe refill comes with two packets of LME.
  12. I'd compare what BB&B has to the kits on the MRB site to make sure you're getting what you're looking for.
  13. I revised mine due to new recipes: - Cinnamon Dulce Stout - Pecan Porter - Thunder Bay IPA - Hidden Lake Amber Ale - Solstice Sipper ----Transition to lagers depending on house temps--- - Armstrong Dortmunder Export - Helles Bock - ChromosBeer - El Gordito enhanced ----Transition back to ales?--- - A Galaxy Far IPA - Black Beer'd Porter - Crafty Bitch TBD - WDA TBD
  14. Can't make it out too well but it looks normal to me.
  15. MRB has greatly revised a lot of their conditioning times to much shorter periods. IMNSHO it's simply an effort to appeal to newer brewers. I still condition my beers for the "old" times. And I don't ferment any ales (except for ones using Saison yeast) at a temp above 67F.
  16. I would take the old yeast and throw it in the boiling water. That'll kill the yeast. Then use the S-04 to ferment. The dead MRB yeast will serve as a nutrient.
  17. I just wash them as I use them, with hot water and a bit of unscented dish soap. Shake well, refill with hot water, repeat a few times. If there's any persistent crud I hit it with a bottle brush. Rinse and put on rack to dry.
  18. Shrike

    Hard Cider

    When I'd drink an Apple Brown Beery, I'd put 1/4 cup apple juice into the glass before pouring. It gave it a nice touch of sweetness.
  19. I want smell-o'vision so bad!!!
  20. Wow. There's appealing to a broad audience and then there's giving entirely unrealistic expectations of results. I tried my first Lock/Stock at five months. It was good. At nine months it was great. At 15 months+ it's fantastic.
  21. He suddenly stopped posting here about two years ago. I always wondered what happened; he always had good info and posts to share.
  22. I revised my schedule after receiving my latest order. - Day After Day IPA - Egocentric Jerk Ale - Best Haze of Our Lives Hazy IPA - Crafty Bitch TBD - Seawench Gose - Thunder Bay IPA - Crafty Bitch TBD - Black Beer'd Porter
