Peppers at 10, which seems low.

Are you on season 2 of Bloodline? It is excellent, but more unanswered questions will linger...

Serves me right for getting excited about posting a thread, now I can't even see it!

I would not urge anyone looking to save time or money as it relates to drinking to get into home brewing. That's really not what it's about. Having someone say "wow, you brewed this?!" and most importantly drinking your own beer are what it's all about.

I'm doing BIAB without a large enough vessel actually. Mash in with the typical all-grain volume, then a second pot for a shorter "sparge" mash at a bit higher temp. Getting mid 70s% efficiency so it seems to be working.

By "from scratch" I think you mean all-grain, and it's definitely the way to go! I think our next topic will be home brew systems/setups which will give you a good idea of how to do it. I can tell you I started with Brooklyn Brew 1 gallon kit, and now am doing stovetop all-grain batches of 3 gallons in an apartment. It's doable!
Also, I'm only on batch #8 but have made beers that can go head to head with Two Hearted and Fresh Squeezed IPA (ok maybe I'm a bit biased). Roughly $20 for 20 pints in the end.

Also, this is still 100% done on my stovetop in an apartment.

Damn that's a lot of beer, 250 batches of 12 gallons! Impressive. I will look forward to seeing your brewing system when that topic comes! I'm confined to apartment brewing so very much small batch.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Definitely give it a try!||
Definitely give it a try! That sounds like a great opportunity to start off without having to buy any equipment. I'd go for it.
The way I got started right into all-grain brewing was a kit from Brooklyn Brew Shop. For about $40 you can brew a 1 gallon batch which will net you 7-8 pints of beer. It's a pretty easy way to see the whole process on a small scale. The equipment is also re-usable, but if you get the bug you are going to want to upscale quickly. I'm brewing in an apartment, so I've only scaled up to 3 gallons. Basically after getting set up with cheap pots and plastic carboys, for roughly $20 of ingredients I can make 20 pints of beer. And some of the beer has been absolutely delicious.

This is true. The right time to open a brew pub has probably passed us by.

Go all-grain right off the bat! Brooklyn Brew Shop 1 gallon kit is how I started, and now on about batch #8 doing 3 gallons at a time.

I may have to walk the 2 blocks over to Wrigley tonight. Though I don't think I've ever actually made it for the start of a baseball game.

Probably not the solution for you if you don't own the music, but I love Google Play. I don't pay a dime, and I can upload my entire music library onto it and stream or download from any device. It's pretty convenient.

Sounds awesome. On a related note, I have been home brewing quite a bit lately, and have been meaning to start a thread in case others are into the hobby. Maybe I'll get a thread or two in before OT season ends.

Yep, agreed. Not a fan of a basketball player logo on a football shirt. But then again I'm not buying gear just because of a brand switch so they don't care what I think.

Agreed on Ericsson. But come on, I've read probably hundreds of comments containing the words "Fuck you Cleary" or some rendition of that. There's tons of folks criticizing Holland for the signings, but there are certainly personal attacks.

No one has felt the wrath of WIIM more than Dan Cleary, a player that was a key part of a Stanley Cup run and that I thoroughly respect. It's one thing to criticize a deal, but another to lash out at players who do nothing but try to help the team. Oh, should he retire and no longer pursue his livelihood because the fans want a young player to get a roster spot? That's ridiculous. Again, criticize Ken Holland for roster management if you want.

Fair point. But obviously for $1.8M a year they won't find that high scorer who can fly.

I'd say out of that group there's no unique role for Miller. Glendening can kill penalties and block shots, but also take draws and put in 10 garbage goals a year. Ott's the enforcer. Abby, AA, and Jurco are all expected to play top 6-9 forward spots now.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||Well I'll post what I posted on WIIM...||
He’s gonna score 10 goals a year, he’s gonna win faceoffs, he’s gonna block shots, and he’s gonna kill penalties. Are those traits no longer needed on hockey teams and everyone needs to be a high scorer who can fly?
