Now now, you know that's not true. Considering I would spend $50 at Total Wine & more and only come home with maybe 18-20 12oz bottles I'd say I do save a fair ammount of money, unless you factor in the time & labor.

If possible could you rite me a guide step by step what to do as I'm confused off reading so much off the net, how long will it take to ferment, do I bottle str8 after and leave? Is so how long or do I leave in barrel for a week? Thanks
maybe troll

maybe stupid

but, as a n00b myself, I've probably asked these very same questions in the Beginners' threads.

they're read, not overheard, but they are definitely funny things said about beer; how does this NOT fit THIS thread?

This is an aggressive ale. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication...
Well that is pretty arrogant
My question is why would the waitress give him IIPA after he askec for a busch lite?

Let's face it, if she had handed him Levitation he wouldn't have liked that either. If it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing...

I like to plink at the gun range. Picked up a little 380 and thought it would be cheaper to reload. Bought brass, powder, primers, a press, scale, dies, etc.. yeah it saved me a ton of money per round. At least half the cost.

With commercial ammo, I'd shoot 50 rounds a month. With my cheaper reloads, I was shooting 200. So much for it being cheaper.

I tried to rationalize homebrewing to myself with the cost argument. You'd think I learned something. Fail. Now I just drink more beer.
