Where are they getting yeast that will ferment to 29%? Best I know of is 18% with a few that claim 20% with iffy results and a nasty taste.

Screw a carbon tax, it is a sham.

Moral auth fucking ority. Really? The thought should occur to the Europeans that their citizenry know also when they are being SCREWED. A tax for being a carbon type life form, which pretty much means everything. Cunce.

Gomp is spot on regarding the yeast. Above 18% the alcohol kills the yeast. IMHO the yeast was genetically engineered to survive the fermentation process to 29 percent. The carbon tax will be pushed and with Patrick Wood (my best guess) being named sec of energy and Deval Patrick as atty general.

Here is a connection between Deval and Patrick. http://bjdurk.newsvine.com/_news/2012/09/04/13659999-deval-patrick-takes-the-wind-out-of-barack-obamas-green-energy-sails. Sorry for brief posts but I am winging this with an I phone.

Maybe not!! I find it hard to believe anyone would vote willingly to eat the GMO slop Monsanto and corporate agriculture are trying to force americans to eat.

Thanks John,

There are a couple of yeasts who claim 20%, but I have never achieved 20% with them, and they imparted a bad flavor though rapid fermentation. Lavin 1118 is a superior yeast for achieving 18% with no funny flavoring or cloudiness. I am suspecting possibly a distilled product which would actually be 58 proof?

Gomp, I came across something related that I spoke to DB about. Will have it up next week.

The Election is over. I am out of bed for the frist time since 9:00 p.m. Tuesday evening. I am thinking about a shower, and going to get some work done.

But then I think, why? Someone is going to take it, no matter what I do. If I do it better, and more often, I lose more!

My dad (union, big D,) used to say "be grateful you have it, to pay".

I am less grateful every day.

If you are into strings that are not attached to Bail Outs, Mergers, Banks, Crooks, Wall Street,

QE1, QE2, QE3, QE4EVER, enjoy this String Animation.


Don't kid yourself, Obama and his merry carbon counters have had a specific plan since 2007 or maybe 06. Just a matter of time. Only 4 more years!

Showdown set in House on carbon tax


House Republicans have teed up a floor vote designed to rebuke long shot carbon tax proposals and politically tether President Obama to them in the process, despite the White House vow never to propose an emissions tax...

...Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) is offering an anti-carbon tax amendment to legislation on the floor this week that requires congressional approval of “major” federal regulations.

His amendment to the “Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS)” Act would include, in the definition of a major rule, “any rule that implements or provides for the imposition or collection of a tax on carbon emissions.”

The amendment, which will force Democratic lawmakers on the record on carbon taxes, states that a carbon tax would reduce economic growth and increase energy costs.

It’s part of wider efforts by Republicans and an array of conservative groups to prevent carbon tax proposals from gaining any political traction...

...“This administration has used every trick in the book to implement their agenda so far and this amendment codifies and clarifies that they need to go through Congress to implement their radical carbon tax and it also specifically puts Congress on record opposing a carbon tax,” Bell said in an email.

The House is scheduled to begin debate on the REINS Act Thursday.

Thanks John

Because the President has a "black heart" regarding Carbon Tax, I see the need for such a bill.

Additionally, would you trust the MOST/LEAST Transparent President in History? I don't!

Thank you for hanging in there! A few of us DB'ers are working on some serious projects so stay tuned!

Anyway, I want to update the carbon tax bill...

House slams door on carbon tax



The House approved an amendment to legislation Friday that would prevent the White House from imposing a carbon tax without congressional approval.

The lower chamber agreed to Rep. Steve Scalise’s (R-La.) amendment by a 237-176 vote, with 12 Democrats crossing the aisle to support it.
The amendment was added to an underlying bill that would require Congress to OK regulations that carry a $100 million economic impact or greater. That bill is dead in its tracks in the Democratic-controlled Senate, AND THE WHITE HOUSE HAS THREATENED TO VETO IT...(emphasis mine).
