[quote]Mead is just fermented honey, and you're never going to get to 35% abv.[/quote] Yes, we do mead quite often and have only gotten as high as 22%. That was an apple mead that we had to baby like crazy and then let it age a several years before it turned out well. Most of my fruit meads top ...

re: Where do you get your kegs??? - convertedtiger
I usually get my kegs from Rouses on Juban. I would agree that it is hit or miss though. What kind of trouble have you had? I do like their prices though. $20-30 cheaper than Albertson's. My next place will be Oak Pointe in Central. ...

[quote]That’s a neat idea. I considered putting my big patio umbrella out there[/quote] LOL, most use the shade sail type material that still lets a lot of the light but less of the UV to get a cooling effect. More like a tight mesh where it just knocks some of the light and heat down to a more ...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - convertedtiger
I got lazy and haven't planted anything until last Sunday. It may be a little late but I planted squash, cucumbers,bush green beans, and bush butter peas. I have never tried fall crops of these so we shall see what happens. My cucumbers and squash in the spring were a major disappointment. Next...

re: Regular shingles vs Architectural shingles - convertedtiger
We had our roof redone in 2017. We went architectural for looks and they had a higher wind rating than the 3 tab. Have been very happy with them. All the houses in our neighborhood are going to architectural as well. ...

re: Driving from BR to Denver - any suggestions\recs to make this dreaded drive better - convertedtiger
Like others have said, Amarillo through Raton Pass is the best route. Palo Duro Canyon State Park is pretty cool as well. The Texas Outdoor Musical has been cancelled for the year but it was always a favorite. The Big Texan is always a good time. The absolutely stunning view through Raton Pass m...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - convertedtiger
I got lazy and have not started prepping for the fall garden yet. The freak wind storm last Thursday shredded our canopy on the deck and finished off the few remaining tomatoes. I will be cleaning up and getting ready for fall planting this weekend as well. ...

re: Granite vs. Quartz Countertops - convertedtiger
[quote]Wait, you gotta seal granite every year?[/quote] There is some no seal granite in the market now. We saw it when we were shopping. We went with quartz because boss lady liked the color better. It have been in since 2017 and still looks like the day it was installed. We have been happy ...

re: Saltwater Pool Questions - convertedtiger
I have had both and honestly will never have a non saltwater pool again. My last pool was 8500 gallons. We ran an over sized pump 12 hours a day with a sand filter. Get a good test kit and a good automatic pool cleaner. Our pool was away from any trees so we rarely got much organic matter in the...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - convertedtiger
On another note, my little hydroponic experiment is going well so far. Three yellow squash harvested and three more beginning to develop. I have some full spectrum lights to replace my normal 5k plant starting lights but haven't gotten around to hanging them. It has been a fun little experiment s...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - convertedtiger
I still have a lot of Brandywine tomatoes ripening but the rest of the tomato plants will be coming out this weekend. I have picked almost 5 gallons of the biggest Jimmy Nardello peppers ever so far. One was almost 14" long. Luckily, we fry those suckers up in some olive oil and a few cloves of o...

re: Building a home with treated wood instead of untreated wood - convertedtiger
[quote]How do y’all cut that stuff[/quote] Buy a good quality sprayer with a larger hose and spray tip. It also helps if the Boracare is warm. It WILL destroy the sprayer so just chalk that up to part of the expense. I tried to clean the crap out of mine afterward. A week later, they whole th...

[quote] I just don't want to see it die[/quote] You will have to watch it like a hawk. The heat and humidity are murder for tomatoes. Pests and diseases will be another hurdle. Now, I have seen some put sail cloth type canopies over their tomatoes during the heat of summer to help them out wit...
