re: No carb diet - Canuck Tiger
No carb isn't wise, but you can stay under 20g net while losing weight and then slowly add in GOOD carbs until you are stable at desired weight. You'll want your carbs to be in fiber form unless you like shitting antlers only once a week. Speaking of which go easy on the cheese too. Drink LOTS o...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Canuck Tiger
Brewing a simple hefe tonight while kegging an azacca/simcoe neipa brewed with Conan. I think it's saisons for the foreseeable future here after this; that's basically all I feel like drinking lately ...

re: Took a rock on the windshield of my brand new car. - Canuck Tiger
I've had my new car 3 weeks. So far someone rear-ended me when I stopped for a pedestrian (teenage girl who was on phone and didn't even hit the brakes). Then my wife got caught in a freak hail storm with grapefruit sized hail. I assumed they'd total it due to hail damage, but the estimate for both ...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Canuck Tiger
Brewed a neipa tonight (18% oats, rest 2 row @154f) and used simcoe and azacca in fiscally irresponsible quantities at flame out. I'm trying Yeast Bay Vermont ale strain with it. It's gonna be hefe season when I get back from traveling later this week :)...

re: The price of a pint - Canuck Tiger
One of the coolest brewers local to me has a brewpub and fills growlers from there and also makes beers that are on tap at 2-3 different restaurants. Those beers are designed for the restaurant based on their menus, and only available there. I talked to him about it and he had the attitude that as l...

I clarified because by law pints are 20 oz here. Periodically there's a scandal where some bar gets busted using US glassware and short changing people. ...

re: The price of a pint - Canuck Tiger
$6-7 for a 20 oz pint; growler fills aren't too much more most places ($12-20 usually). Most breweries do 4-5oz samplers at ~9 for 4. //edit half pours are generally only $1-2 less and are 14 oz not 20; I'd much prefer 8/16 oz pours and slightly lower price point. ...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Canuck Tiger
Yea the first beer is always a 4-5% sessionable beer that can ferment out with just a smack pack. That's my starter for a second bigger beer. In a conical you can dump trub out the bottom so I get a good bit of the dead yeast out with the trub in the first day of the new beer settling. In the bucket...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Canuck Tiger
Not really I think a true passivation is 1oz/gallon for 30 mins or so and should be done any time you scratch the ss or every yearish. However, I figure a nice strong soak for a day or two can't hurt anything and it's a good time to disassemble the ball valves, swap o rings where they are found, and...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Canuck Tiger
I usually redirect hot water from my immersion chiller into either pbw or star San and then use it over the course of a week to clean everything thoroughly. I usually fill a keg maybe 1/4 full and shake the shite out of it. Carboys same thing but swirl. Conical and brew bucket I fill to the brim and...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Canuck Tiger
Yea I do the same and I've never had problems even with room temp bottles. Kegged a sour stout on sour cherries today, cleaned a bunch of stuff in the brewery, and now I'm about 15 mins from whirlpool addition on a NEIPA. Good little evening's work....
