    A Hoffbrau house is right across the river in KY. I had a great time there once.

    I have a 10 gallon stainless economy pot (thin walled) really wish it had a ball valve to drain
    it after chilling, siphoning sucks.You can add one to yours. I did to my 15 gallon pot. Love
    it.To OP, g...

    Yeah, I've had it. A friend brought a six pack back from the brewery. I would say that it's
    good, but not great. B+ maybe. Two Hearted and Hopslam are both better. I love hops though, so
    I'm always ha...

    Founders Red's Rye is good.Bear Republic's Hop Rod Rye is terrific.Shmaltz Brewing Company's
    He'Brew Bittersweet Lenny's R.I.P.A. is very good too. They even have a version of that aged in
    Rye whiskey...

    Is the only way to get the fresh hop taste to add them after fermentation, or can you get a
    similar effect by adding them to the boil?

    Modus is great. Perfect beer to sneak on to the golf course in your bag. They also have a very
    good canned APA: Euphoria. And their Decadent IIPA is pretty nice too. Thumbs up.

  • Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 08-27-2010 at 05:57 PM
    Brewing Pliny again Sunday, after partying all night at my friends wedding the night before.
    It's going to be really rough. I hate getting all sweaty when I'm really hungover.

    FFF's Behemoth is about $17 per 22oz bottle. Worth every penny.As are all the RRB weird, funky,
    wild, sour beers. I pay roughly $24 to get those shipped to me. Temptation is to die for.

  • Posted in thread: less corn sugar for 22oz bottles? on 08-26-2010 at 05:59 PM
    If you're filling a variety of bottle sizes, I'd use the normal amount. However, my RIS was
    over carb'd because I used the normally recommend amount of priming sugar and bottled in all
    22oz bottles. T...

    I'm not surprised at the overall feeling of on here. There a lot of pretentious
    blowhards on that site. I do find it a very useful website when browsing the liquor store
    however.First of all, w...

Fermenting, aging, kegged, bottled, drinking, etc... Who's got time to keep their sig updated? The answer to all is: something (hopefully good). Go White Sox!
