    I am lucky, local co-op refills tanks so I have 2 that look like new even if they are 15 years old. Need to get 2 more, in winter I need one in the garage heater, 2 for the beer brewing rig rig, and 1 for the other burner for smelting.

    I use a griddle to fry it on, spread it out in a thin layer to cook off the water and crisp it faster. More crispy goodness that way too! And yes, start with a little bacon fat! The onion/garlic are optional if you are in a hurry.

    Transferred the Cyser to secondary and off the yeast cake. It was ready for that. WOW does that stuff have an alcohol bite! Good flavor but definitely needs to age. Figure 2 months secondary then bottle it.

    The sad thing is you may try time after time and suddenly the problem disappears without you knowing why. A little lino (to harden and fill out) added will likely help. Once you get the melt level down in the pot, a good scraping of the pot...

    Last door I had to trim I used my ez-track for the skil saw. Clamped it on the door and shaved off a piece you could see through! Perfectly straight cut.

    Many use range scrap, either dug from the dirt or from traps at local indoor ranges. If you look down in the special projects forum there is a thread on bullet traps right now.
