  1. Actually, most yeast will handle up to 10-11%. Once you get over that, then you need to start looking at special yeast. But the yeast I used is Safale05. And started batch #2 - Irish (bribery of the wife) Stout -much more your style @Alan Longmire . SG is 1.051 (but I have a LOT of specialty grains so it's probably pretty high in dextrins) and only about 37 IBU. I have to admit that I am not much of a dark beer drinker, but this one...

  2. I just got a harsh reminder that whenever you want to use your propane forge; make sure your connections are tight! It started up and immediately made a fireball at the intake for the forge. If this happens cut the fuel immediately. (My dumbass immediately tried blowing on it for half a second) if ANY damage to your hose/joint have occurred then replace them or fix them before using the forge again. Any damage sustained will be a risk for future pain/death. Bottom line. Be diligent and be safe before you turn on the heat.

  5. Thanks for the link, absolutely gorgeous! The Stabilized Giraffe and the file-work on the bowie fits perfectly. The other pieces as well show your skills. Well done!

  7. A homemade power hammer made its way into my shop last week. It is about 20 pounds of hammer force. I got it bolted to the floor today, and all the leaks in the propane line fixed. So I'm all ready to try making my own damascus.

  8. Time to get creative, then. Start with finely powdered charcoal and clay, and try to find a binder like molasses or cider dregs. That's not too far from Theophilus' recipe from 1100 AD or so. Adjust quantities to get a stiff dry paste. Use as thin a coat as you can. Maybe add some borax or boric acid.
