  • Posted in thread: What is a Session IPA? on 10-26-2014 at 03:47 PM
    Seems like a marketing gimmick to get more people to like ipas but to me it's a facade.I'd go
    in a different direction. I've been to enough bars that have three IPAs on tap without a single
    Pale Ale t...

    As I said above, I took this concept and applied it to a different style- in this case, mild.

    That's the bad news. The good news is that if it has been in the fridge this whole time, you
    are more than likely fine.Either way, good advice to make a starter. Depending on the amount of
    wort you ar...

    You have some interesting ideas, and if you spent an hour looking through Radical Brewing, I
    bet you could come up with a lot more. One idea that comes to mind from that book: he suggests
    brewing a ba...

    Eldorado Spring water is available at many grocery stores and WalMart, and they provide a water
    analysis on their website. I am far from a water expert, and I probably assume way too much to
    really ti...

  • Posted in thread: So in theory, if I brew my own, I can pay 2.50 a six pack? on 09-19-2014 at 01:11 AM
    You might, depending on how you quanitfy it, be able to make a six pack for $2.50, but if
    saving money is your only motivation, I can show you much easier ways to save money. I have
    cheapskate tendenc...

  • Posted in thread: How many batches have you actually poured? on 09-18-2014 at 04:14 PM
    I had one batch where I was using my sanitized whisk to froth up the wort before pitching
    yeast, and the whisk fell apart into the wort, apparently exposing it to some nasty stuff that
    was stuck betwe...

  • Posted in thread: Hobit's beer style on 09-16-2014 at 09:10 PM
    I would something like IPA, maybe not that hoppy.Given that Hobbits are generally
    unadventurous and do not go too far from home, it seems improbable that they would have needed
    to create beers that c...

  • Posted in thread: Breweries filling only "their" growlers, what's up with that? on 09-16-2014 at 07:07 PM
    The whole thing is pretty ignorant. A growler is a vessel for transporting liquid... Beer is
    liquid.I have no idea if this is true, but I bet the original law was about fees and licensing.
    I presume t...

    This is getting a bit off of the original OP, but given that the question seems to have been
    answered...Yes, the growler filling store seems to be a thing in the South- Tennessee has them,
    and last ti...
