  • I started brewing around 2006. Some friends and I decided to try making strawberry wine based only on an online recipe and NO background knowledge of brewing/winemaking. Needless to say, it got horribly oxidized and tasted like crap. We agreed to turn our interests to beer, using a kit and actually learning about the brewing process this time. It turned out much better, and I've been homebrewing ever since. http://www.brewtoad.com/brewers/31244/recipes

    With what you have, maybe equal parts NB and Cascade?

    He persuasively makes the case that there is far more diversity in beer styles than in wine
    styles, leading to greater opportunities for pairing. I'd agree with that. Even though wine
    gets the reputat...

    I actually didn't know Blue Moon was owned by Coors the first time I had it (I wasn't
    especially beer educated at the time, but I'd try just about anything set in front of me). I
    didn't like it then, ...

    I'll admit I'm also not a wine person. I enjoy a dry red wine on occasion, but I also find
    myself at a loss picking out most of the minutiae at a tasting.Man, you're going to the wrong
    wineries (or at...

  • Posted in thread: Ranking of states by beer... interesting. on 08-28-2014 at 02:28 PM
    I'm honestly surprised KY made it as high as it did (which admittedly still isn't very high).
    Aside from a handful of breweries in Lexington and Louisville, the rest of the state doesn't
    have much goi...

    Lone Star, Schlitz, or Mickey's.I forgot about Schlitz! I haven't had one in years. I'd put
    that in the same boat as PBR, as cheap as dirt, but drinkable.

    In my limited experience, Yuengling is a less tasty and cheaper version of Sam Adams. How you
    think it compare to the Mexican Vienna style lagers?Yuengling has a fruitier taste than the
    Mexican Vienna...

    No sir. It's hopped with the random assortment of weeds surrounding the cherry tree. Cherry
    dandelion wine?Now that sounds good!

    It's bad enough that somebody stinks up the men's room at about the same time every day, but if
    you're going to stink it up, then LEAVE THE DAMNED FAN ON!!! Don't let that horrid stink waft

  • Posted in thread: What makes people here say, "now thats a saison"? on 08-26-2014 at 03:28 PM
    I think one of the things that make saisons so popular is that they traditionally have pretty
    loose guidelines, so they're open to experimentation. That being said, I usually consider the
