How Beer is MadeWritten by Jason (The Snob)

Yeast is catalyst that makes it all happen. In short, yeast is a living organism that feeds off of sugars in malt. The yeast will convert sugars to alcohol and carbon dioxide in a process called fermentation. There are many strains of yeasts (even in air we breathe). In order to get results needed for making beer, a specially cultured beer yeast is required. The yeast will also impart taste and mouthfeel qualities to beer.
The Beer Making Process:
To summarize, malt, hops, and water are boiled for a period of time. This mixture is called wort (pronounced wert). Then wort is poured into fermenter and allowed to cool. Next, prepared yeast is pitched into fermenter and an airlock is placed over opening. Now itís yeastís job to do its thing. The yeast will multiply like crazy as it consumes sugars in brew. After a period of time, usually within 7 to 10 days, yeast will have consumed all that it can and fall to bottom of fermenter. Finally, beer is bottled and set aside for a couple of weeks to mature and carbonate. Making beer at home really is a fantastic hobby and can be a great social activity. Have some friends over and let them try your new brew. Better yet, get them involved and see who can make best batches. Have blind taste tests with your buddies. Most of all, have fun!

Another feng shui love guideline talks about old relationships. You should make sure there isn't energy from an old relationship around. To achieve this, you must remove from your bedroom anything that reminds you of that old relationship, and if possible from your whole house as well.
Feng shui love guidelines also tell that your house main door should be ready to receive love. In order to achieve this, you must check out that this door opens easily and as wide as possible, without any kind of obstacles for it. And ideally, your bedroom door should open same way as well.
You should make sure that your bed should be placed opposite door but not directly in front of it. Besides, feng shui love principles tell that your bed shouldn't have one side against a wall since that would make person sleeping on that side uncomfortable.
