  1. True story... lol Not generally but I wont know the oncall schedule for the month until a couple days before month start...which I keep complaining about. I wish they would do a two month schedule or give us more than a couple days. Makes scheduling stuff a bit more difficult. Depending on where we do this I would probably do a Friday through Monday kinda thing for travel and such. (4 day weekend mini vacation-esk kinda thing)
  2. Good to be around a bit! It has been a little while, work got stupid busy again...... we had a guy quit, another go out on medical leave so that's left just me to take care of about 1/3 of the state... its calming down now since we hired a couple more guys and the guy who went out on medical is coming back. 😊🍺
  3. Oh @RickBeer I almost forgot your Valentine's poem....
  4. Depending on when we do this, I am fine with any of these choices....
  5. Sorry, I havent voted yet...lol June is a tough month for me to try and take time off as it is busy season. Generally it is frowned upon to take vacation May-October....
  6. I vote Columbus Oh. There are TONS of breweries around here.... also... here are some pictures from inside Brewdog...
  7. I wont be able to make it......... Its my busy time at work, hence why i havent checked in in a while. workin 10-12 hr days 6 days a week. May, June, July, August, and into September i get the pleasure of having no life sadly. That said, I truly do enjoy my job in the commercial HVAC industry..... been doing it 13 years.
  8. My $0.02 worth.... yes, use a sanitized hop sack, add the little bit of vodka, it wont mess with things.
  9. For optimal results do both! Use the silicone spatula to get out as much as you can, then hit the can with some of the boiled water for final clean out....
  10. Me and @MiniYoda will work on another one For maybe September In the Greater Columbus Oh. area (Including BrewDogs Only brewery here in the US.). We have TONS of breweries and Taprooms around here, many within walking distance(ISH) of each other so some planning might be done with everyone once we are all together. We have an airport right here (John Glen International airport code CMH) for those that want to fly in and hotels/motels GALORE! Depending on how many come we could look at renting a couple vehicles, or piling into the vehicles of those that drive in, or live around here and go from there. We are only in the VERY early stages of this idea so look for a separate post to pop up soon!
  11. Trust me, it hurt typing it out...... For sure, i can name at least 7 brewerys (there is probably more i am forgetting or dont know about) here in the Pickerington/Columbus area (BrewDog, Land Grant, Wolfs Ridge, Seventh Son, Elevator, Combustion, Loose Rail) we could hit up... some do give tours (i would have to research that info) I can also give a drive by of the local Bud$%@!r plant
  12. Looks like a no go for me No one will cover my on call.
  13. Again, to quote the awesome @Bonsai & Brew.......... if you don't brew it, who will??

  15. As has been said, temp control is very important. With the yeast that comes with the Mr beer cans, you gotta keep the wort temp around 65 for optimal performance with not getting the green Apple flavor. Personally for my experience i stopped using the included yeast and switched to us-05 pitch the entire packet. It's a bit more forgiving but keeping wort temp below 70 is best with this yeast. Again, this is my experience and yours may vary.
  16. Jim, Depending on how you like your carbonation level, 1/2-3/4 tablespoon would be just fine, any more than that and you might get really overcarbonated and possibly bottle bombs... which is not fun. For me and the wife, we like it a little less carbonated so 1/2 Tablespoon worked perfect for us. You could test which you like better by doing some 1/2 and some 3/4 (make sure you mark which bottles are which) so you would know for next time you do it. Cheers!
  17. no clue then.... use the link i gave earlier, that may be the best bet...
  18. no problem! if you were searching MrBeer it might not have brought it up... the chanel is therealmrbeer so that may cause issues when searching.
  19. Great job on the show @MRB Josh R!! One thing i would maybe recommend is slow down a bit, you seemed rushed (and a bit nervous/flustered) during the brewing portion. Also, whoever is manning the cam control and paying attention to the chat feed could read you questions as they pop in to help..... just my thoughts...
  20. Currently 4:06pm here on the east coast and the thing says i got 26 min before its live........
  21. I am still trying to work it out. I am Scheduled to be on call that weekend but i am trying to get someone to switch or just take it..... (unsuccessfully so far...) so it is still up in the air for me.
