I've been doing all grain since my 3rd ever batch. Just seemed like the way it should be done. I'll occasionally do an extract batch if the weather is bad and really really want to brew something.
One thing I've never done is a 'wild fermentation'. The sack of malt I was going to use today is supposed to be a 'session farmhouse ale' so I figured I'd just boil and leave it outside overnight and see if anything starts growing on its own. Not sure how much the time of year effects the wild yeasts floating around in the air, whether spring/summer/fall is better.
Awesome. Takes way longer, but all grains the way to go. Solved the bad weather thing a couple of years ago and went electric. Couldn’t justify $1k for a stainless steel hood so I bought a $16 galvanized tub at Tractor Supply instead...
No thing of beauty, but man it works!
Never done a wild fermentation. I know Allagash up in Portland, ME put in a coolship ( https://www.allagash.com/coolship/?ao_confirm) and have been experimenting with it. Sounds interesting though, you will have to let us know how it turns out.
That reminds me, @BroncoMom, sent the boy off to college with the appropriate skill set... sophomore science fair project was the effect of temperature on brewing yeast and fermentation!
I was at my buddies shop on the island a few months ago and the wind was honking and it looked like the sky was going to explode; there is a radio antenna right there on the property and this guy gets out of his truck with another guy and starts climbing....
Nice. Thank u for your years of service @broncosarge77 :usa
Most regular cbd oil is thc free unless ur in a thc legal state like California, Colorado, Washington state, there u have the option, with our without higher thc content.. most cbd are less that 0.03% thc content so they don't interfere with piss tests. When you're ready to look into it check out a brand called pinnacle https://pinnaclehemp.com
I know it works well. A senior friend of mine was able to get his bed ridden wife off all her narcotic pain killers using it. If u have any questions about it feel free to message me. Happy to answer any questions u might have about how cbd can help.
Wish I had the money to put up a tower like that. The lil' lady recently paid for a 40 ft. mast, a big spool of guy wire and a 100 mile OTA Digital TV antenna for me to install against the house, so we can eventually drop the damn Direct TV over-priced bs and go with something like Sling and OTA, combined with an Air TV unit or something similar. May as well take full advantage of this fiber-optic I've got plumbed to the house, out here in the boonies.
On rare occasions, we can get nearly 70 mph winds across these mountain plains I live on. Unfortunately, I have no idea what I'd be doing and installing a 40 ft., slide/collapsible metal mast against the center peak of my double-wide and trying to secure it with "guy wire", something I never even knew the name of before... is intimidating me. :doh0715:
I'd start a thread on it but I'm not sure if anyone even knows wtf I'm talking about. :whiteflag :goodfinge
That's what I should have been doing over Labor Day Weekend. :shrug
Labor day weekend is the last weekend of the summer for the kids before they go back to school. So we cooked out, bonfire, sparklers, fireworks, pool time, finished the weekend off with going to the local water park and kids choice for dinner. Great family time!
Not sure if any of y'all might have these but... HarborFreight Recalls Jack Stands That Could Suddenly Collapse

@schwim has played a game with me whenever I posted a picture of something and if it contained a VW,(or something that may have remotely resembled a VW??) he would post a new picture w/a VW and claim that it was now a Volkswagen thread. Seemed like a pretty cool idea, so I figured why not start...
So my wife and I along with my daughter were out walking the woods two weekends ago looking for moose sheds. Yessss it really is a thing. The snow on the ridges etc was mostly gone and the low areas was less than 3 feet so it was prime time for looking. We found this bad boy laying about 15...
Hopefully at this long you guys are all pretty much bunkered down as much as possible. We've been under shelter at home for a couple days now with no definitive end in sight.
I hope maybe you guys might post up some pictures of what you're up to here. I don't think it has to even be a...
