Here in Russia, we really like our beer. (And our vodka, but that’s another subject.) But we don’t think much about how beer is made and what makes it better. How do you make the best beer? Is the ingredients? The hops, the malt, the barley? The recipe? The brewer? The fermenting process? Is it in how you store it?

What I can tell you after working with top brewers all over Russia and other countries, is that the key to great beer comes down to one thing: Filtration.

China's wine boom and what that means for diatomaceous earth filter aid

When people think of wine, probably countries such as France, Italy, and the U.S. come to mind, but rarely China. Surprisingly, China is now the fifth largest consumer of wine in the world, with total consumption being about one-half of the total consumed in the U.S. This is a recent phenomenon that accelerated in the late 1990’s and has continued largely uninterrupted to present. The Chinese wine market grew 58% in the period 1996- 2001; 99% from 2001- 2006 and 192% from 2006-2011 before peaking in 2012 and slowing for several years. Rapid growth resumed in 2014 seeing 50% year-on-year growth from 2014 to 2015 (however, much of this growth was bulk import of wines, not domestic production). 90% of the wine produced in China is consumed domestically.

Here's why diatomaceous earth (DE) swim pool filters work so well

We were at a friend’s pool the other day. It was everything you want in a perfect relaxing summer day. Sunny & hot. Beautiful crystal clear pool. Floating around on a tube without a care in the world until my big chocolate lab decided to join me. Calvin! He just swam away with a tennis ball in his mouth. It still was pretty nice. The best part – the pool of course. And the DE filter system that made that pool so clean and pretty. So when I came across this blog post on DE swim pool filters, I had to repost it!
