The Future Is Gonna Be Incredible

Or more sinisterly, who is safe from the man who controls a swarm of nanites with his thoughts? Snow Crash meets The Diamond Age.

Life is Worth Living Again

It isn’t every day that a news story causes me to weep openly.

Fried Beer Comes to the Texas State Fair

BBR Interview 3

James Spencer and I did another interview for Basic Brewing Radio, and this time it was even in person, which was a lot of fun. It deals with gravity measurements and some of the intricacies of using refractometers, and concludes with a call for additional data that will hopefully corroborate my final gravity correlation.



I can think of worse places to stop for a pint.

Yeah, well, let’s see how you do at 6800 ft.

1086 miles in, and already with the obscure references.

Sean, The Road, Again

See what I did there?

It’s that time again. This year’s road trip is a humdinger too – hiking in Rocky Mountain, Zion, and Yosemite NPs, plus visits with friends, family, and fellow brewers. If you’re anywhere near the blue line, give me a call.

Same Shift, Different Day

Well, I’m unemployed again. Today’s tips, in order, were:

$1.11 $0.09 $0.11 $0.21 $0.00 $2.10 $0.01 $0.00 $0.00 $2.32 $3.21

Not only did I not make minimum wage, I had a flat – technically, I lost money by going to work today.

The moral of the story is: tip your driver well. You never know […]

Playa Dust Pale Ale

Sometimes I just can’t leave well enough alone. I decided I needed a second beer ready for Burning Man, so I whipped up a hopbursted APA recipe that would use up some odds and ends on a day’s notice. Apparently I angered Ninkasi with my lack of planning though: I accidentally doughed in with 3.75 […]

Generic prednisone canadian

Last month I posted a brief summary of the troubles I was having with the de facto standard refractometer correlation for final gravity. Specifically, I found that it under-estimates FGs by, on average, about five “points”. More interesting, or at least more useful, I also found that the degree of the discrepancy is fairly well […]
