I am still around

I check the forum about every morning before heading off to work just to see how everyone is doing! By my last count, I have not brewed a beer in about 1 1/2 years. Time gets away.

Hops IBUs?

I just received several pounds of hop pellets from Hops Direct.

Fermcap-S and Pepper Poppers

After deep oil frying several batches of Pepper Poppers, the cooking oil was starting to foam.

Hum :twisted: A few drops of Fermcap cleared the foam to clear oil again.
