Re: Best way to read the site

I pull up view active, then use the right click, 'open in new tab' for each topic, so I end up with numerous open windows. Then I read and close each one. I refresh the view active topics one more time, read anything else, and then go to the main board index, and click mark forums read. Like rad sai...

Re: Best way to read the site

The 'View Active Topics' Is a good link. But as has been mentioned it DOES use search resources. If you hit every hour, no big deal. It does NOT show you new posts since your last visit. It shows posts that are a week old or less. The ones you have not clicked on, will have a 'new post' icon (yellow...

Re: Mobile compatible site

Very good to hear. NOTE, our server version is far behind. But I am NOT going to update that, for a while, to make sure things are working. The tapatalk upgrade process kind of sux, and causes loss of 5 or 6 of my hand modifications to site files, so it takes a decent amount of time to do, and want ...

Re: I made too much

Once split into 2 9g batches, I would run each half, into smallish containers each set numbered. Then smell/taste/feel to make the cuts. Just because on 1 run you do not add the first 3 jars does not mean you should skip testing on the other run. On that run, it may have been hotter, and the first 4...

Re: Any crib platers out there? ever get a 29

Barb and I played, and I played some in the past, but not too much. I probably only have had 25k hands or so. I have gotten a couple 28's but never a 29. One of the 28's was quad 5's in the hand, woulda been a good draw poker hand ;) 29 would be pretty special, for sure. 2 29's close is even more sp...

Re: Storing product in plastic

Has this POS topic gone on long enough yet? Is this one any more useful than the 200 other 'what about plastic' threads that have come up over the years?

This one has been allowed to go on, and so far at least it is not a pissing match. But really, is there anything still let to say?????

Re: Why do some people say not to use ice in a condenser buc

The topic makes it sound like he is talking coil in the bucket. IMOH, most replies give information about a lebig or some other forced flow condenser. In the case of a coil in the bucket, you DO want to have a temp gradient build up in the bucket. Hot (almost steaming) at the top, and cool at the bo...

Re: Best temp to age/mellow apple pie?

use a stronger neutral. that way, you are not using 40% ethanol, and 60% water in your 5oz. If you put in 3oz of 90%, and filled that pint with 'juice', you would have about 34%. If you put in 2oz of 90%, you would get 22.5%. But the biggest thing you gain here, is you put in less water, thus less f...
