How'd did the league work last year? The league I was in was terrible. It was impossible to gain ground on anyone because every team could be exactly the same, so once you fell behind you were out of luck. ...

I bought the B3-23A-30 plate. I had a couple of friends recommend buying two 20 plate ones and connecting them in series, first with ground water the second with ice water. While that works really well, I didn't want to deal with 2 plate chillers. So I went with the 30 and will just cycle the wor...

I swung by All Star yesterday on a whim to take a look at the Tacoma's on the lot. Only had 4 there which seemed odd. My friends who have them really enjoy them, so I figured it would be a good option since I do not feel I need or would get the use out of a full size truck. Going to swing bac...

Open one up and see if you can taste any off flavors. Maybe the closet got hot recently and kicked up more yeast. Or more likely, the bottles have soured and the bacteria/Brett are producing more co2 now ...

I could tell right away with the previous batch that something wasn't right. So you could just take it out of the barrel and cold crash it right then. The major thing is that you have to keep it full, or dose it with co2 all the time. ...

The barrel is now basically full, hopefully that doesn't cause any issues. I need to just relax abou...

Went to the beach this weekend so no brewing. After a 7 hour trip home from Pensacola with a stop at Old Rail to ease the frustrations from traffic, I did some beer checking. The blonde ale that I didn't like the aroma of so I dry hopped last Thursday tastes really good. Glad I dry hopped it....

Completely agree with his argument. Hopefully we will see our players get the recognition and chances to play in Europe, because if we are going to rely on MLS we will continue to be the same old American team that wins on heart and effort rather than true talent. ...
