As I recall, someone with a pile of credentials put a nail in the thread by stating that they could never add anything to the medical grade oxygen because of the potential for an allergic reaction. That could be deadly for anyone that is ill enough to need oxygen. Just what I remember.

I cheat on the "all grain" by adding 3 pounds of DME since my mash tun is a 7 gallon plastic bucket. I brew a pale ale first then use the whole yeast cake for this brew. The only problem I have had is the last time I used WL0008 instead of 1056 and couldn't get the bottles to carbonate. One month, two months, still flat and sweet. SO I opened 5 bottles and added a few grains of Nottingham (grains, not rehydrated)to each. After a month, one bottle carbonated but the other 4 didn't. SO I rehydrated a pack of champagne yeast, added a few drops to each bottle and recapped. In a week they carbonated just the way I like. **************************************************************************** ***** Batch Size (GAL): 5.00 Wort Size (GAL): 5.00 Total Grain (LBS): 18.06 Anticipated OG: 1.108 Plato: 25.5 Anticipated SRM: 21.1 Anticipated IBU: 134.4 Brewhouse Efficiency: 75 Wort Boil Time: 90 Minutes Actual OG: 1.108 Plato: 25.5 Actual FG: 1.012 Plato: 3.1 Alc by Weight: 10.03 by Volume: 12.84 From Measured Gravities.

Date: Mon, 15 Sep 2003 13:45:19 -0400 From: Richard Foote <rfoote at mindspring.com> Subject: Spam and the HBD Recently, Dion dashed Marc's hopes of less spam due to "masking" of the HDB done by Pat: >You must just have a lucky coincidence. If your address had been >harvested before, it is still being used today unless the spammers get >bounces. Once they glom onto an address, they do not let it go while it >does not bounce. On a hopefully related note, I have been told that you should not click on the link to have your addy taken off their mailing list as this will confirm that the spammers have found a "live" one (a good working addy). I just got one sent to me by Bed, Bath and Beyond and hesitated over whether to click on the removal link. I didn't. Sorry this is not beer related, but we all get his crap and want it to stop. Can anyone confirm or debunk this one? Rick Foote Whistle Pig Brewing Murrayville, GA Return to table of contents
Date: Mon, 15 Sep 2003 17:14:09 -0500 From: Clayton Carter <crcarter at cs.indiana.edu> Subject: light sensitivity in carboy We all know not to bottle in clear or green bottle (or, at least, to be more careful when we do), but is similar caution recommended when fermenting in a carboy? I moved from plastic to glass for this batch and I'm curious how I should be treating the carboy. I'll be more specific: my carboy is in neither direct light nor florescent light, but it does get a decent amount of diffuse day light during the day. Will this lead to a light struck brew? Right now, it's in a milk crate and is about half covered with a garbage bag (to contain any leaks or spills). Will half covering it make a difference in the answer to the above? Furthermore, does the light sensitivity depend on whether the beer/wort is in primary or secondary fermentation? Is it worth it for me to move the carboy to a darker, but less convenient area? Sorry to be pedantic, but I didn't anything in the archives and I thought it'd be worthwhile to get something somewhat definitive into the archives. Thanks.

Specifications (tests, procedures and acceptance criteria) for medical gases are actually established by each firm. However a firm may use the USP (United States Pharmacopoeia) specifications and meet the requirements. The USP contains legally recognized standards of identity, strength, quality, purity, packaging, and labeling for active ingredients and therapeutic products. http://www.fda.gov/cder/dmpq/gases.htm Bob Fruit Fly Brewhaus Yesterdays' Technology Today Return to table of contents
