A preview

I hate to say it, but I've been busy lately. Too busy to blog (is that an appropriate use of the word 'blog'). Tonight I bottled my house ale (Metathesis Ale). I'm going to try to keep this one on hand at all times. I like it a lot.

While I haven't been blogging (seriously, can I use 'blogging' as a verb?), I've been running a lot of ideas through my mind that I want to write about. If you are interested, here are a few of the things you can expect to see on this blog before April:

1) Tannins and how they affect beer (Look out for the pKa).
2) Mac OS 10.5. I just got it loaded today (finally). I will give you my impressions.
3) ChemDraw 11 (a.k.a. Ultra (2008 version)) I'm trying a demo to see if I want to replace my 2005 version.
4) Harvesting yeast from a yeast starter and storing it for 2 weeks.
5) Brewing water chemistry
6) why I ALWAYS type 'chemistyr' instead of 'chemistry'
7) How people from Poland pronounce "diastereomers" funny (based on one experience).
8) The use of gelatin in a secondary to act as a clarifying agent.
9) The chemistry of paints and paint binders.

Now, I hopefully will get to these.

Every. Single. Time. I read it as 'disasteromers,' which while not a word, should be.

Hmm, I always type 'chemsitry'

Now free your calendar and get blogging!
