Down in AZ you might like to brew to a southwestern flavor so try your local Roger Clyne or the Refreshments. As for me, I enjoy The Tubes, Jethro Tull, or even Maynard Ferguson (screamin' trumpet on the boil). Cheers, Dave Cloverdale, CA Return to table of contents

Why, bluegrass comes immediately to mind when brewing any alcoholic beverage! I put on some Stanley Brothers or Grandpa Jones and the brew day flies by.

Date: Tue, 23 Aug 2005 8:40:39 -0500 From: Trevor LaRene <larene4 at tds.net> Subject: Re: Music to Brew By... I always play music during my brew sessions. Since my most of my brews are fairly unique, I like to play music that reflects that character. I find that two groups are perfect: Trans-Siberian Orchestra Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Both groups have very eclectic styles, combining multiple musical forms (classical, jazz, heavy metal, blues, and rock) into very energetic and inspirational compositions. (Of the two groups, TSO is my favorite, with their "Beethoven's Last Night" setting the gold standard for musical accompaniment.) The other music that I use (fortunately, only 2 times in the past 4 years of brewing) is of bagpipes playing "Amazing Grace". This is used on those rare, but terribly sad occasions that a brew must be dumped. Good luck and Happy Brewing! Trevor LaRene Return to table of contents

Ummm, are you trying to influence the process by making the wort happy? Concerned that sixties rock might make the wort too acidic? Otherwise, the best music is music you like to listen to. (As long as it doesn't distract you from the brewing process, of course!) Brew on!

Date: Tue, 23 Aug 2005 18:36:52 +0200 From: Thomas Rohner <t.rohner at bluewin.ch> Subject: Brewing Music Hi Dave i have a 10Gb Creative DAP or Nomad Player filled with quite different Music. In the morning i start with Gary Burton, Pat Metheny, Andreas Vollenweider, Acoustic Alchemy and the like. Later on Crusaders, Average White Band, some Blues and Rock. For hosing down the brewery i have some real bad stuff like Nirvana or Rage against the machine. At home i have a Terratec Noxon. That's a wireless network player which can play internet radio streams like Smoothjazz.com. At the brewery we have a neighbour with a unprotected wireless router and a Dsl-flatrate. So i sometimes use my Noxon with my favourite internet radio stations (without commercials). Cheers Thomas Return to table of contents
Date: Tue, 23 Aug 2005 19:14:52 +0100 From: le Man <hbd at thebarnsleys.co.uk> Subject: Fluid Level Sensors Thanks for all the replies. There were a couple of Caveats that I forgot to put in my original email Firstly I don't want to use Float Switches as they will be a PITA to keep clean . . . But still a solution Secondly I don't want to interface to a PC, or a PIC Controller, or any other kind of 'computer'. I like the idea of IR LED Thingys, not that I was particularly worried about the light from a Blue LED Skunking my beer, It was good to know that AJ Confirms what my aging memory remembered about beer colour. SO I think that I will go with my original idea. I will Have a blue LED (Variable Brightness) at the top of the Underback, with two Light Dependant resistors at each of the two levels in the wort. The LDR's will feed into CMOS logic Circuits to act as switches. Now to design the circuit, Its been a long time since Electronics 101 :) Oh an under back is the English name for what I believe is a Grant in the US :) - -- le Man ( The Brewer Formerly Known As Aleman ) Mashing In Blackpool, Lancashire, UK - -- No virus found in this outgoing message.

It was rather uplifting and made the brew day go by with a little whimsey. BA AR [254.2 265.5] Return to table of contents
