high five bmike

My name is Mike Bradshaw. Please contact me if I can be of assistance as one of the Moderators of Ask Different on Stack Exchange.

Note, If you are emailing for help answering your question as opposed to help with moderation of the site, be sure to send a link to the question. I can't answer every troubleshooting question here (my paying customers have priority). If you have an exceptionally tough problem to solve, I do love challenges. Help me help you by asking a stellar question.

I'm often in the chat rooms here, but I'm also very much on the twitter as @bmike.

comment Troubleshooting new keggerator equipment - sanke tap, gas manifold, etc
Does the adjustment of the regulator temporarily correct the unequal flow? I'm not sure how that relates to the problem of unequal dispensing as the question is worded. Could that part be deleted and not change the issue?

comment What material should I make my brew paddle with?
I would say most marine paddles these days are fine for brewing due to the move to epoxies and other impermeable glues. They do this since stronger glues are better for making light weight and strong paddles and someone making wood at this point is generally making a premium paddle.

comment How would I make Alcoholic Rootbeer?
Step one - brew awesome root beer. Step two - add vodka or other distilled spirit to taste or mindset.

comment How much weight to add to a dry-hop bag?
Nice - I like this better than my "adaptation" on larger scale spice bagging in a commercial setting. Suspending from above an overly heavy bag seems the most controllable and least fallible method.

comment Using unknown loose hops
Awesome can do attitude - of course someone adding unknown hops is going to be up for experimentation. The real shame will be if the beer turns out amazing and you want to try to replicate it.
