Great article.

I dropped my 3-roller monster mill (twice) and managed to bend the shaft the drill was attached to. Ordered a new one and upgraded to the 1/2 inch shaft (lower roller in picture) - hopefully harder to bend it if I drop it again.

The rubber gaskets are so that the roller keeps in contact with the other 2 rollers in the mill and they all turn together. This overcomes a flaw in design. The MM3 rollers are not geared with each other so it is difficult to get them all going when milling grain, but this is an easy and effective solution.

Singing the Praises of +Google Maps Navigation - Google Navigation is Proactive, Real-Time, Flexible and Responsive (Just the way it should be!).

After driving 16 hours each way to Kansas City and using Google Navigation the entire way I feel compelled to shout my praises.  The real-time Traffic is incredibly useful.  It is incredibly accurate and up to the minute and the Waze integration is great.  In addition, Google will proactively calculate alternative routes and give me the option to take it.  On more than one occasion this saved us significant time (and frustration).  And even when you do get stuck in a slowdown, you can easily see how long will will be stuck.  It is fabulous!  Add to this that Google even continuously shows you the time for alternate routes more passively right on the display.  It only prompts you when there is good reason to do so.

I already opt for Google Maps on my phone over the in car Nav system for several reasons.  First, Googling a location or selecting a favorite from your maps is a much easier and more straight forward way to find your destination than slogging through the in car Nav System to enter your destination address.  Second, Google maps is always (nearly) up to date.  The in car system is always (nearly) out of date and requires expensive upgrades periodically.  Finally, you either have to pay for Traffic or do without it on the in car system.  I am sure there are better in car Nav Systems out there, but I can not imagine any living up to what is delivered (for free) by Google.

Google Navigation is so good, I have taken to using it to navigate around town to destinations I already know very well how to get to.  Google anticipates traffic and road blocks and prompts you to take alternatives while you are in transit.  This is fantastic and just makes my life easier.

While I am obviously enamored with Google maps, I must also point out a few shortcomings (opportunities for improvement).  I only point these out because they are so obvious I can't believe they have been over-looked.  

First, why can I not search for rest areas in maps?  It would be incredibly useful to be able to see how far away the next rest stop is so I can put my bladder at ease.  

Second, when you do search for things, like gas stations, why not only show me those in front of me?  You know which direction I am heading and what highway I am on.  I most likely do not care about the gas station I just passed or ones that are off on a different road in a different direction than I am heading.  Google has gotten so good with context, so why does it not show up here.

Third, and I know this is possible by looking on the map itself, but Google could deliver information related to when restaurants or gas stations "at" the next exit are actually several miles off the highway.  I find it infuriating that those blue convenience signs for what is available at an exit do not reveal the distance off the  highway you will have to travel to get there until you have already taken the exit.  That is pure evil!

Please note - I am not a tech person or a developer.  I am just a moderately tech savvy end user.  There may be technical ways to do some of these things, but as an end user, I should not have to worry about that!

So, nice work +Google Maps - Keep the improvements coming!

Some new pictures of my Fermenter.  Its a 27 gallon Fermenator in an industrial (minus 20C) freezer with a dual control thermostat.  The cooling is run by the compressor, for heat it is wired toa 60W lightbulb and fan.  In addition, I have +theBeerBug including a temperature probe in a thermowell extending into the fermenting beer so I can monitor the internal temp.

New brew started.  Brewed 15 galoons of a Belgian Wit.  I plan to referment 5 gallons on 2oz of fresh ginger root.
A Belgian Ale with an expected 5% alcohol by volume!

For what it is worth, the Ginger Wit came out great, although a bit strong in my opinion.  I used 2 oz of grated ginger in the finished beer for one week.  Next time I will likely cut in half to make the ginger a little more subtle.  A 50:50 mix of the Gingered Wit with the Normal Wit is about perfect!

A few year's ago I barrel aged some of my Porter in a 5 gallon used bourbon barrel.  It came out fantastic after only 2 weeks of aging.  This was quick due to the high surface area to volume in the small barrel. 

Now, I have just purchased a 15 gallon used bourbon barrel to age my entire batch of this year's porter.  I can use the difference in SA/Vol ratio to estimate how much longer to expect to need to age this batch.  I do realize that MANY factors will play into how long the aging will actually take.  And I will age it until I feel it tastes right.  But does anyone have any experience aging a porter or similar style in this size barrel?  Any input is greatly appreciated!

This is a well-written, extensively researched and clearly communicated overview illustrating the truth behind the anti-GMO movement.  It should be a must ready for every consumer.  It clarifies the hypocrisy behind all of the fear-mongering you hear.

This reporter takes you through a historical perspective, using real examples of genetic engineering and the attacks waged by the anti-GMO activists - usually contradicting themselves along the way.  It is very informative and a great resource to learn the real stories behind the engineered papayas that saved an industry, Golden Rice engineered to counter Vitamin A deficiency, the fallacy behind the "organic is healthier" using the Bt example and finally an education on the reality of round-up ready crops.

Take the time to read this and share it with those you know who are swayed by the false arguments they hear from activists.
Is genetically engineered food dangerous? Many people seem to think it is. In the past five years, companies have submitted more than 27,000 products to the Non-GMO Project, which certifies goods that are free of genetically modified organisms. Last year, sales of such products nearly tripled. Whole Foods will soon...

Nice to see the Soybean Growers come out with a statement denouncing Chipotle's mis-information campaign.  We need to do this with the same vigor against the likes of Whole Foods as well!
The American Soybean Association issued a statement in response to Chipotle’s recent announcement that the fast-food chain would remove all foods containing genetically-modified ingredients, including the soybean oil used in cooking, from its menu. ASA President Wade Cowan, a farmer from Brownfield, Texas, noted farmers’ continuing frustration with the misinformation about agricultural biotechnology advanced by Chipotle:

Just ordered this digital refractometer.  I have been wanting to order this for some time now to replace my optical refractometer.  I hope I love it - anyone have any experience with these?

I've had decent coffee here before. On this visit, the sign on the door says they open at 730am. I was there at 745am and the doors were locked with no sign of life. No coffee for me

Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, very good beer selection. Would get 5 stars if they put papers towels in the bathroom insured of hand driers. Nitpicky, I know, but I HATE those things!
