Exchanging brews sounds like an excellent idea.

Default whats up with colorado?

why are there...just kidding.
Isnt Chalie Papazain from colorodo? has anyone ever tried finding a bottle of his mead that he says he buries eveyyear on top of some Mountain in Colorodo? I think he gives enough clues as to which mt. it might be(he says you can see his town, etc.) im thinking with a little detective work and some common sense someone could find a bottle and drink it and maybe replace it with a Budweiper or something...or is that just evil???

oh, that's definately evil, but I think Chuck would appreciate the humor if someone pulled it off.


you'd have to stick a note with the buttwiper that said, "Relax. Don't worry. I have your homebrew."

You should at least be nice and leave a bottle of yor own private reserve. And add a "MUAHAHAHAH!" to the end of the note.

I live in Thornton.

I've considered looking for Charlie's loot, but the side of a mountain is a pretty big place. My best friend and I thought it would be cool to leave a bottle of our own if we could find it. I don't think we could take his out of respect.

Here's a good beginner to intermediate book. Hardcopy sells for about $17, but it's free online.
http://www.howtobrew.com/

Empty bottles from a homebrew store will cost you about $9-$11 per case! If Colorado has a bottle deposit law, try going to a liquor store or grocery store or wherever bottles are redeemed to see if they'll sell you empties. I have a store close to me that will sell me as many as I want for the price of the deposit (5 cents each). I can get two cases (enough for a 5 gallon batch) with six-pack holders the cardboard box for $2.40. If you're like most home brewers, you'll find that you'll be giving away your liquid gold to lots of your friends. A nickel apiece makes it really affordable.

A couple other big advantages to plastic buckets are they’re super easy to clean and sanitize, and the spigots make racking easy.

Sounds good to me. I've always brewed by myself and I've always wanted to meet other home brewers.
