"I brew about 10 gallons a month. I do this mostly to share with others as I like to brew real heavy beers like IIIpa's and Stouts. The beers I brew for myself I try to get them to start at .030 OG and finish with .008 or less FG. This way there…"

"The best beers to brew that have the least residual sugars are lighter. Beers brewed with all base malts like pils malt or pale malt will have the maiximum amount of edible sugars for the yeast to convert into alcohol- which means less sugar intake…"

Well we are only a couple days from my first 20k race. I cant beleive things have come this far in my fitness and my sugar disease. After my dianosis I was concerned that things like distance running were out of reach and now with my pump I feel liberated. Life could not be better. So with that I wish everyone a good rest of the week and I pray for good health to all. Kevin

first goo run after sarting my pump.

hello

Can anyone give me a little insight on Hot Tub / Water use now that I am on the pump (mini)? My wife and I own a hot tub and I use it to help my muslces after running to relax them and such.

I am concerned about the adhesive around the "sight" coming off while in the Hot Tub/ Water / Shower? anyone got a little advise for me?

Thank you
Kevin

Yes I just started my pump on April 13th and it's so amazing. I had a rough 1st week but they tell you it will be b/c of your body adjusting to the non-stop supply of insulin throughout the day that our bodies haven't had in yrs. But you will like it- and it will be confusing at 1st but you'll get the hang of things pretty quick. Take care and if you have a question I'll answer it to the best of my knowledge. Heather-Ann
