Default Hi, new here

Hi folks,

Thought since I found this site and even posted a couple times that I should introduce myself. I started brewing ale last fall, after starting to make wine and cordials last spring. So far I've made a Trappist-style ale, an Imperial stout and most recently a honey-brown ale. The first 2 came out well. The honey-brown isn't ready to drink yet, although I'm impatient to see how it comes out.

I've been surprised at how many bottles have made their way into my house since I've started to make stuff!

Default Names

Thanks! Nice to be here.

Just curious, it looks like you folks have a format to your posts, and I gather I now need to figure out interesting names for each brew and my brewery? Are there any, um, standards, for such things?

There are no guidelines to choosing names for your brews/brewery. Most people go with stuff that is personal to them, inside jokes, and things like that. You could name your beers based on a mishap durring the brew process, or example, if you forgot to sanitize your ladle before you stirred your wort, you could call the brew "Unsanitized Ale", or "Dirty Ladle". Have fun with your naming, and be prepared to answer the question "Why'd you name it that". The same concept applys to brewery names.

About the post formats, I am still kind of new here myself, but I havn't noticed anything about specific formats. This place is pretty laid back compared to other forums, for example there is a lot less "flaming" here. I think this is because most forums are full of high school freshmen, so they bring the maturity level down. This place appears to be a bunch of people who share interest and just want to learn from others experience, help each other out, and talk beer. I think you will like it here. Good luck with your naming.

I have never named my brews, usually I guess because I'm following someone elses recipe anyways.

Yeah, I keep thinking that I should name my brews after something. I contemplated naming my Oatmeal stout "Lazy Dogs Oatmeal Stout" because our two dogs just lay around and watched me brew it. But when push came to shove, I named it Oatmeal Stout II because it's the second batch of the same recipie. Not glam... I know. But it drinks the same.

Amen to that brother. This forum is, with only a few exceptions very civil and even the 'heated" discussions are conducted with a minimum of flamage.

QFT: Wouldn't it be great if all forums had an age limit of 21?

My 4X4 board that I run does, the previous owner finally had enough of the kids and closed it, I took it over, built an admin team. We decided that under 21 could only post in chit chat, unless they have an adult sponsor. We've had a couple occasions when the sponsor had to talk to them, kids seem to take it better coming from someone they know, then a faceless name on the interweb. So far it has worked.

Glad to hear that. I don't mind good give-and-take discussions, but I don't see any reason for flaming and prefer to keep away from that sort of thing. I've got too much real work to do to mess with that.

Speaking of which, I've got to figure out what to do with a zillion pounds of zucchini. I don't think it'll make beer, though!
