I'm gonna work on a recipe for my next brew day: "Shut Down Ale".

High gravity, very sudsy, makes you disagree with others, doesn't fulfill.



pb --- Maybe just call it, "Gov Beer"

Just a reminder that political comments are considered "unwelcome" in the brewing areas. There is a specific location for that sort of thing: The Debate Forum, which supporting members have access to. If you want to comment on the shutdown, please do so in the Debate Forum. If you want to comment on the shutdown and do not have a paid membership, you are out of luck, sorry.

Please reply with comments related to brewing during the shutdown.

Making sure the beer is in good shape for all the furloughed people who will be coming in today.

I expect to see a rise in sales for the month
