|2 weeks 6 days ago||Thank you for starting this, sorry I am late to the party today||
I've been homebrewing now for about 5 years and just now am moving to all-grain. I got all of my starter gear from Adventures in Homebrewing (AIH) in Ann Arbor. Highly recommend them, and their site is good as well (homebrewing.org)
Initially I had a basic setup with an 8 gal brew pot, a 220KBTU propane burner, glass carboys and bottling equipment. I moved to ball lock soda kegs 2 years ago and haven't bottled anything since. Force carbination takes 2+ weeks out of the waiting process.
This year I have added 10 gallon coolers for mash tun and HLT. I also bought an "Oxygenator" to improve fermentation and it works great (cuts fermentation time in half and it is more complete)
Next on my wish list is a permanent home for my setup so I don't have to haul it from the basement to the garage everytime I brew.
AIH has an outstanding clone of Bell's Two Hearted, and that is by far my favorite homebrew so far.
Thanks for starting this, hope to learn much from my MgoBrew family

You can also hit there web site at homebrewing.org.
Best advice I have gotten, and the best recipe kits (grain + extract).
I got all of my start-up with their packaged kits and it was excellent. I have since added all-grain epuipment. Only wish they were closer to me.

|28 weeks 5 days ago||Could be an awesome "3 or 4 years"||
I do wish Rashan hadn't put the "3 years" out there in his announcement, but keepin' it real he will be ready for the NFL by then.

Sorry, my Yoda sounds more like Kermit... I will leave it to the professionals...
|30 weeks 6 days ago||Huge fan of Wait but Why...||
Plan on spending more than a lunch hour, he has several topics that are fantastic. I absolutely love the posts on procrastination...
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Outstanding defense by Walton and MAAR||
They shut down two very good guards. 2 points for Melo is unbelievable.
|35 weeks 11 hours ago||Not sure this is what you are looking for...||
My second fall in Columbus Ohio hanging out with friends at a bon fire sipping on Peach Schnaaps and Vodka from a wine skin... Enjoying the whole scene until the Woody Hayes impersonator (there was always one of those at a gathering in the '90s) learns I am a Michigan fan. Sipping turned to drinking as I listened to all the great Michigan jokes they have in Ohio...
Jump to the end where I projected my stomach contents directly into the passenger side heat vent of my 1992 Mitsubishi Galant GTi

Doesn't a 3-4 require a lot of linebackers?

He never wants to stay long enough to deal with the long term damage... Was he at Florida more than 4 years?
|39 weeks 5 days ago||Agree, I focus on the Nat'l rank||
... and look at the data point for an idea of significance...
Example, the National rank for Sacks for and Sacks against doesn't tell tell as much as comparing their averages per game for both...
|40 weeks 1 day ago||We blamed the running game on passing issues...||
And though that wasn't the whole issue, we have been running into 9 man fronts a lot and also defenses are jumping keys to stuff the run. The passing against IU will give PSU and OSU something to think about, and I hope we will see some better balance this weekend.
I think the one thing we may still be missing is the quick passing game to punish the LBs for jumping run. Quick slants to TE or WR, especially out of the slot. Anything to get the LBs and safeties to think for a second before pinning their ears back and crashing the run.
Side note: I think this may be the opposite if the issue with our LBs, they seem to be a second late deciding and then run into blocks instead of RBs...

This makes it clear that Smith got antsy and cut up when he should have stayed outside. He is not fast enough to be thinking he can make the corner. No question one of the other backs gets 5+ on this to the outside.
I love seeing this on film as it makes for easy teaching for the coaches. This is about as obvious as it gets that a well blocked play cannot prevent a back from cutting into a LB.
Interesting to see the UFR when it is out as I am not sure where the breakdowns were. Line may not have played as bad as it felt, and I do think Utah's front 7 are solid.
|50 weeks 5 days ago||Khakis are available at Wallmart||
Is that what you meant?
|50 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks Brian, that gave me chills...||
Even Brightside has trouble being optimistic after the past few years. I was so sure we would be good last year...
I really do just want it to feel like we are on our way back, but winning this game would be so sweet.
|51 weeks 1 day ago||How much tape do they have to watch to prepare for Michigan?||
When he started talking about Florida tape for the defense, USC for Special Teams, Stanford and the 49ers for Harbaugh, Michigan for personnell... oh, and Iowa to see Rudock. And after all of that they don't really know what they are going to see when it all gets mashed together...
Awesome. Can't wait. Go Blue!
|51 weeks 4 days ago||5th year is no longer guaranteed...||
not sure if you will see this as I am late to this thread. There is a distinct difference in JH's approach to 5th year players that I don't believe will be just a one year adjustment. He does not want the 5th year to be automatic, and leverages that for further competition.
I agree with your frustration as I would at least like it to be easier to know who has another year or two left. We're going to need this board to help us keep track... hoping we collectively don't make the same change.
|1 year 3 days ago||TecmoBowl... Fake Fieldgoal was unstoppable!||
My then 5 year old nephew beat me repeatedly with the fake fieldgoal... At the snap he would run back30 yards so all the defenders were off screen... then launch the bomb... When the ball finally came down all defenders had gone on break and the receiver was all alone 80 yards down field...
Still burns a little...

Doesn't have any answers, but repeats over and over that a statement will be released as soon as the press conference ends...
|1 year 5 days ago||MGoBlog is more than just a fan site...||
As you get to know some of the personalities of the regular posters MGoBlog is more like a bunch of friends hanging out and talking about all manner of things. On Topic or OT, there is always an intersting debate or sharing of wisdom...
Of course, just like in college, an occasional fight breaks out among friends, but hey, we are all passionate people. In common we share a love for all things Michigan. We all bring a different background and perspective but are united in our Fandom.
