Default A brew for the possible Government shutdown.

I'm a federal employee, and with the possible government shutdown coming up I could be having some extended time off. Obviously I will want to brew in this time. What sort of style do you think i should brew? I wouldnt mind something with a higher ABV because I won't be going to work!

So sound off for my Government shutdown brew!

I'm also federal employee and I feel for you. You should make a barely wine, then maybe you could collect a second set of runnings and get as much beer as possible out of your investment.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
