[quote]e. so cold crashing will drop all that shite out? 40 degrees for 3-4 days? [/quote] A lot will drop out but I would still put a bag on the end of the rack cane to help out even more. I actually did this for the first time on my last transfer and I was surprised how well it worked out. Jus...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Fratastic423
I have no idea what I am going to brew for Zapp's. I was thinking about brewing a lager of some sorts for the house, so maybe I will just make 10 gallons of that. And Boo, who cares what you call it for Zapp's. Just think of some stupid Punny name and go with it. ...

If anyone doesn't have plans on Saturday and is in Baton Rouge, you should come out to our Iron Brewer festival fundraiser for the Food Bank. Good times start at 1 in the field next to Tin Roof. Bring some food to donate to the food bank as they really need our help this year. ...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Fratastic423
I understand the desire to move to small batches, but pulling out my brewing equipment for 2.5 gallons is just as much work as pulling it out for 10 gallons. I have two small kegs, I have small carboys; so I have started just splitting the batches for different variations. I brewed 10 gallons ...

re: Match Day 1/21 - Fratastic423
I think Sterling has a reputation for going down easy, let's be honest he isn't the strongest player on the field. So when he gets a little bump, or in this case a shove, it's viewed as a weak foul not worth calling rather than an actual foul. Still think he should have finished one of his chanc...

[quote]Could keg line size impact the foam? Currently i have a 5' line on one keg that is thicker than the problem keg and it's pouring fine. The problem keg has a new 6' line that is thinner.[/quote] Interior Diameter could certainly impact the flow rate which could impact how foamy a beer is. ...

I've bought two half sacks from tonys in btr in the last 3 weeks. First ones were the best la oysters I've ever had. Sweet and briney in a perfect balance. The ones for Christmas I had trouble eating raw, went with chargrilled and they were good. 26 a half sack ...

re: Pick Up Games - Baton Rouge - Wed Night - Independence Park - Fratastic423
They ended up turning the lights on actually. Played from about 6-720ish then people started bailing. I was told it is designed for over 40 but clearly there were some mid30's guys. I knew a couple and got a pass since I was most likely the youngest guy out there as a low 30's. ...
