    -In Baltimore, Brewer's Art is not to be missed. The best brewery in MD. And you can get
    Ressurection in cans, and rotating beers in bottle-conditioned 750s (though not on premises).

    I second Craigslist or online- even ebay.

  • Posted in thread: To turn to the dark side or not? on 06-22-2011 at 05:13 PM
    The only down side is that we don't brew after work anymore, just on weekends or when we cut
    work since we know we'll be brewing for a couple hours longer.

    We have three chillers- one double IC bought new for doing 10 gallon batches, 1 that came in a
    haul of used equipment for cheap, and one really small one. For what its worth, we use the

  • Posted in thread: Better explain the band aid taste on 04-28-2010 at 05:14 PM

  • Posted in thread: Stuff getting in boil pot during the boil on 07-09-2009 at 02:22 PM
    All kinds of organic matter falls into our boils (leaves, twigs, probably some bugs, hopefully
    no leg hairs). If it's big, we'll try to get it out with a spoon. I love the screen idea.As far
    as coveri...

  • Posted in thread: Would you still buy beer? on 07-09-2009 at 02:17 PM
    There are too many great beers out there to NOT buy commercial beer. I'm often inspired to try
    something new by a commercial beer I try.
