  1. Actually the whole project is a bit of fun, part of the whole roll up your sleeves and have a bit of fun kinda thing. Before I get someone else to do it I'd just punch in the utilisation numbers myself. I'm just wondering if I can make it a bit nifty.


  2. Hey there, I'm trying to put together my own excel sheet for Brewing Calculations. Just as a bit of fun and to make my life a bit easier. Now I'm no expert in Excel and I'm trying to figure out if this is at all possible, and if it is, could someone point me in the direction of figuring out how to set it up. I've basically got two sheets one for hop additions and one with a table of Hop utilization (extract vs time of addition). I'm just wondering if I can set something up, for it to pull the utilization out table when given the extract and a time.


    In other words given a x and y value pull out the number from the chart. Any help would be appreciated, even if it is just to tell me I'm an idiot and there is absolutely no way in hell to do this.


  3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.


  4. A guy goes to a psychiatrist. "Doc, I keep having these alternating, recurring dreams. First I'm a tepee, then I'm a wigwam, then I'm a tepee, then I'm a wigwam. It's driving me crazy. What's wrong with me?" The doctor replies: "It's very simple. You're two tents.


  5. We should really do a Homebrewers meetup at some time on TT. I think that the basic misunderstanding is the idea the OP has that you can simply purchase a machine and it will at the flick of a switch produce beer, similar to a bread machine. Unfortunately brewing is done on various systems and not in a single machine. Although not challenging requires a bit of understanding to figure out what is what and how it is used. Here is a good place to start, with some basic brewing techniques and a bit of the theory.


    As a bit of a warning home brewing requires time and a bit of know-how and some space, nothing outrageous, but definitely not just flick a switch and a couple hours later pour yourself a freshly made beer.


  6. I stopped by yesterday, to see what was out already. Last time I went two days before and it was already out. No luck this time unfortunately, however I'm thinking of heading back today after my class. Might be worthwhile, might not. I found oreos on sale yesterday so I bought a couple packs of them.
