  • My father loved to drink beer in the evening all his life. As he got older domestic beers was starting to cause him sever health issues. He started making his own beer and the health issues disappeared. He swore commercial beer will kill a person slowly. He switched to homebrew when he was 60 years old and lived to 81 when cancer finally got him. He told me, "if you are going to drink, drink beer. Don't drink that cheap trash in the store, make it yourself".

  • Posted in thread: What's the worst craft brew (commercial) you've had? on 04-14-2014 at 03:45 AM
    The beer distributor delivery man told us that the old beer goes to die at big lot stores like
    SAMs club. Grocery stores have the fresh beer. We had this conversation after complaining about
    a popular...

  • Posted in thread: IIPA - 1st time using columbus, amarillo, and simcoe on 04-14-2014 at 02:52 AM
    That hop combination should be pretty nice. In my experience Columbus has a very floral note
    that I relish in my IPA's. It also has worked out for me very well when I dry hop with it too.

  • Posted in thread: My first Hefeweisen, yeast flocculated on 04-10-2014 at 12:07 PM
    The yeast flocculated heavily. I have the clearest looking Hefeweisen I've ever seen. This
    batch used WLP300 and it is supposed to be a low flocculating yeast, but looking at the
    finished beer you wou...

    OG 1.106 Pitched 2 packs of US-05 at 65F. It's going to be a barleywine for sure.

    I've found posting my recipes here is an interesting way to keep a record of them and share
    what I'm doing all at the same time. Just like the title promised, another barleywine.17 lbs

  • Posted in thread: South East Kentucky Brewers, sound off! on 03-23-2014 at 02:31 PM
    I've found a few other brewers. Well, one other that is active. However, he is such a busy guy
    that I don't expect he would be to active as far as trading brews, chatting it up, and stuff
    like that. S...

  • Posted in thread: Funny things you've overheard about beer on 03-22-2014 at 04:14 AM
    Working at the LHBS/taproom the other day. A customer decided to tell me that he felt ashamed
    asking if we had Coors Light (which we don't and never will have on tap). Long story short he
    went on to t...

  • Posted in thread: What I did for beer today on 03-22-2014 at 04:08 AM
    I planned on bottling two batches today. Didn't do it. Friends came over, had a new mattress
    delivered, kids were restless. I'll do it tomorrow. Tomorrow will be my Beer Day. I hope to
    bottle 10 gallo...

  • Posted in thread: Scotch Ale, very strong on 03-18-2014 at 02:33 AM
    You got me. Big beers mean using a blow-off every time for me. I've never had one stall like
    that. Even when I under-pitch the yeast. What size starter did you pitch? Also, which yeast did
    you pitch? ...
