    lol no salt up here, I'm in the middle of the land masses now, but it is a challenge catching big fish on 10 to 12 pound test line, i've been floored many times how I can wear a big fish out with patients just to loose it at the surface with one roll over snap...my net broke once from the weight lol

    Ive been engine trolling this year, 10 ft deep lure, the lowest rpm you can go in your boat, cast about 30 ft behind the boat, keep an eye on the depth finder for 12 to 15 ft water, put your feet up a relax.....I always bring in 5 to 10 10" to 15" fish an outing

    Ok in an effort to steer this thread back on course o_O I have been reading allot of your older posts and I found something that intrigues me ... Well a found alot that intrigues me but one thing I want to try right away , some split their batches into gallon trial brews , what kind of equipment do i use and at what stage of the process do I add these little concoctions ? IE different spices , i read about a french press being used, I do allot of cooking so interesting flavors peak my interest
    Never know I may stumble across something.

    You'd really just need smaller fermenting buckets. I usually split a 5 gallon batch into 2 or 3 different boils. Do one as just the recipe for control. The other 2 I'd put whatever in to experiemnt.
    You could get a French press or other fancy equipment, but if you have a decently equipped kitchen, you're probably all set

    Thanks guys I think i can figure out , I think my wife can get some 2 gallon food grade bucket from work, bakery department,
    Jmcnamara so i do each as a separate primary fermentation with different addition to each and one is like a control batch ?

    Exactly. I usually split a vial of liquid yeast as evenly as I can across the buckets.
    At least the first time, Id do a control batch. That way you know whats the beer flavor and what's the spice or herb flavor.
    For that matter, I'd highly recommend doing this as a SMaSH beer so you can really isolate each ingredients contribution
