I was just logging in looking for some insight on spruce myself. No need to ask any questions,
I found everything I was looking for in this thread all ready. Thanks for the info folks. I'm
going to be...
Posted in thread: mixing witbier and cider on 06-19-2008 at 03:26 PM
The other night I mixed up some of my spiced witbier with some of my own hard cider. The
mixture was 2 parts wit, 1 part cider. It was very tasty. I figured I'm not the first to try
such a thing and e...
Posted in thread: Reusing bottle caps on 02-23-2008 at 11:45 PM
I've thought about this too. We've been saving caps at my house for a while now. I (at least)
have been very careful when prying them off. But I have yet to risk even one beer by reusing a
cap, as the...
Posted in thread: Bottle safety, Are there bad bottles to use? on 02-23-2008 at 11:29 PM
I've read that twist off bottles tend to be thinner glass and should just be avoided. I've also
read on the forum here, that some folks have used twist off bottles without issue. I often hit
up a loca...

a while ago and it didn't seem to be getting any better with age IMHO. I fed it to my roomates
and they l...
Posted in thread: Garlic beer on 02-21-2008 at 07:53 PM
I'm in the middle of doing some homework about garlic beer myself. Bare with me as I dig up
this month stale thread. It's one of the many reasons I decided I wanted to start brewing my
own. I love gar...
Posted in thread: How would you go cheap? on 02-13-2008 at 02:38 AM
This whole thread I find 100% confusing. I brew with extract and get a 6 pack in the end, that
(I think) is far better than most pricey beers, for about 2 bucks a 6 pack. That's less then I
can pay th...

I have a batch of porter that I'll be bottling this weekend and I keep kicking myself for not
making it a coffee porter to start with. I got the idea in my head to brew a nice strong pot
(mabey two, I...

I was just about to ask some more specific questions about this myself. I'll toss in my own two
cents here though.I've bought a lot of coffee beers and I never ever liked them. I've made a
couple of b...
