I think I'll brew one, possibly with Peter.

I bought some canned 'pumpkin' last year, may do a mini batch myself as well.

I tried a few other pieces of software over the last few months, and just last week uninstalled them all. Back to ProMash it is, until someone develops a web based suite. I have started to update the db for ProMash, and have deleted much of the info that doesn't apply for us here, grains specific to...

He works in a yeast-laden environment all the time. I'd be more surprised if they didn't find any yeast on him! There's probably a good chance that it's basically a variety that they work with all the time. Who cares if it was on his beard? (they grew a culture on a petri dish in a lab, I'm sure it...

matt, I talked to a lady that runs an apiary supply business in Cambridge, and she told me to go to the Cambidge farmer's market. There is always a guy there who can sell 5 gallon bucket quantity. I bought some honey from a guy who sells out of his house on Dundas, between the hospital and Concessio...

I brewed Friday and today. I used the same grain bill and hops (mostly) for both beer, just Friday was an Imperial IPA, and today was an IPA. Pale Malt, some colour, Vienna for body. Bittering hop, and Simcoe, lots of Simcoe.

Called them both "Simcoe De Mayo".

I downloaded Brewtarget last night, and started to mess about some. So far so good. Free, useable for PC and Mac, as well as Linux. It also imports .xml files.

i went to beer town for the first time yesterday. just an expensive sports bar to hang out in and drink beer you can get at the LCBO. And yet it is still the only place in K-W/ Cambridge to go to get most of these beer. My wife and I go once a week or so. The food is good, if a bit pricey, but I li...

I just dl'ed BeerMate. I have used ProMash for a few years, but the lack of updates is frustrating. BeerMate looks pretty good so far, but I am going to verify thir numbers against the BJCP site, as they have the naming off for the Scottish 60/70/80. Thanks Derek, this might just be what I need.

I went in for lunch Tuesday. Food was good, small portions, but I expected that. Good beer selection, far better than anything else that we have locally. Nothing too far into left field, but they need to make the rent. I don't think that anything in Cambridge can be in a good location, this city is ...

I'm still scared. I will do it at some point, maybe buy some gear and keep at my mom's place. Brew at home, take the wort to hr place to ferment.

/I'm sure there are some sour mom jokes in there somewhere. And not very deep.

I'd like to try brett, but don't want to risk it with my current gear. I need to find someone else to store the brett equipment, so it doesn't contaminate my 'normal' brewery setup.
