    This thread reminded me of this news flash from The Onion:Owner and founder of Fossil Bed
    Brewery Dave Walker, 39, reportedly struggled Saturday to find a way to work his 5-year-old
    Labrador retriever...

    I agree with Yooper about the kit. I brewed a few crappy batches at first trying to make my
    "perfect" beer right from the beginning. Go to Northernbrewer, pick one of the beginner styles
    that you like...

    If you're in NC and can find it, Torch Pilsner from Foothills is pretty good. Little less hoppy
    and a bit more malty than many microbrewed pilsners.

    Few random thoughts:[*]Victory Prima Pils is better than any german pilsner I've had in
    Germany, and I go (almost) every November[*]German pils is nice, but I like variety. I think
    most people do. I j...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Starter or 2 packs question? on 04-05-2012 at 04:12 AM
    I feel a little guilty because I'm so lazy that I'll pay for four wyeast packs for my lagers
    just because I don't want to mess with making a starter.

    Wanted to get some opinions on this. Do you think that there's a market for good, traditionally
    brewed German beers in the American Craft Beer landscape? The stuff that gets imported tastes
    like crap ...

  • Posted in thread: Maltier Lager Yeasts? on 03-17-2011 at 05:18 PM
    Looking to brew my first Lager, a Munich Dunkel or possibly an Oktoberfest. I'm looking for a
    really bready, malty profile, and was hoping to get some thoughts on relative maltiness of
    different yeast...

  • Posted in thread: 205 IBU??? Is this right? on 06-08-2010 at 10:26 PM
    Did you adjust the times for the amarillo to dry hop and 10 minutes, or is the software
    defaulting to a 60 or 90 minute boil? Just changing those hops wouldn't have increased it by
    that much. There's ...

  • Posted in thread: two different Pliny the Elder clones...Which one? on 06-08-2010 at 03:48 PM
    Hop bags should help. Just make sure you use a big sack. You don't want a real tight sack, as
    the hops won't bounce around in there enough. Another thing you can do is go to a 60 minute
    boil to reduce...
