    What is everybody asking for in terms of gifts for brewing?

    I am hoping to get an insulation jacket for my Spike Brewing FLEX fermenter. And some new IPA glasses as mine have all broken.

    Maybe I will just ask for money this year? :thinking_face:

    On my last order of ingredients it sure appeared that everything went up in price.:grimacing:

    Cheers!

    I love it. I wish the pressurized lid ring was easier to put on and keep clean, but honestly, that is me being lazy. It works great, it is easy to clean, easy to use. I set mine up so I can ferment, pressurize, carbonate, heck, I can even serve from it.

    Hmm. I'm thinking it's time to ditch the picnic taps and install some proper faucets on my kegerator.

    I am not asking for it this year, but in years past I've treated myself and others to historical recipes from Ron Pattinson. There's a link on his blog:

    http://barclayperkins.blogspot.com/

    A recipe costs 25 euros and it looks very much like one of his "Let's Brew" blog posts, except that he also sends a scan of the original brewing log.

    I've always been very pleased with it. Here's a tweet from a guy who got Ron to make a homebrew recipe for a stout originally brewed in 1935 by the Irish brewery Perry's:

    https://twitter.com/beerfoodtravel/status/1459928287728312320

    And here's a blog post by the same guy about brewing a Perry's X ale (that is, a mild):

    https://beerfoodtravel.blogspot.com/2020/06/historic-homebrew-perrys-1934-x-ale.html

    Those are both 20th century beers but Ron has recipes going back a long way, certainly a lot from the 19th century. Of course if all you want is an old recipe he publishes plenty for free, but if you want a specific date or a specific brewery or a specific style, or all three, then he might be able to help you for 25 euros.

    Updated to add: It's a bit hard to find the button maybe, it's over on the left, do a ctrl-F for "birthday" and you will find it. Once you send Ron the money he gets back to you by email to work out the details of what you want.

    Time is always #1. Next would be more LHBS in the area. There is one store within 50 miles and their prices reflect that monopoly, especially on stuff that is expensive to ship.

    Are you a member of AHA? The recipe is part of an article that Vinnie Cilurzo wrote for Zymurgy July/August 2009.

    Cheers!

    Edit: I also tried to send you a PM but I was blocked.

    Got some Munich special roast, L20 and a couple new 7 . 5 gal fermenters from more beer.

    anybody else have to hammer these fermenters shut or are my hands just getting old

    Got a 1 gallon mini keg which is great to bring over to family and out to the pool instead of having to bottle from the keezer.

    I don't have to hammer them shut but it's much easier that way. Enough so that I've dedicated a rubber mallet for it. For me, taking the lids off can be mildly frustrating, but it's no hill for a stepper.
