    I LOVED this article. Very honest. But let the homebrewers give it a go, too. I am not a fan of
    these "facebook breweries" that homebrew, have a logo, a facebook account, and maybe even a
    banner or 2,...

    I know many people already commented that it's a joke, but I'll throw my vote in on that. It's
    a joke. And if it's not, well I guess it's just part of the progression of crazy in craft beer.

  • Posted in thread: Please critique my Black EIPA Citra recipe on 01-21-2013 at 04:11 AM
    It's a high gravity, but should be good. I would personally do 5.5 lbs. MO and 5.5 lbs. Pilsen
    (the Low Tide has a 60/40 MO/Pils not counting any other grain). And 2 lbs. Crystal. I may even
    use choco...

    Use rice hulls to avoid stuck sparge. To get a darker beer without effecting the flavor as
    much, you can also use a little maltofirm in the primary.Other than that, looks great.

    Should be OK. Blonde will end up a bit cloudy. Should taste great though!

  • Posted in thread: basic kits on 04-20-2012 at 07:21 PM
    $69 is great as long as you have the essential items. I paid about $80 for my True Brew Kit.The
    only thing I would recommend the first time around (that I was unaware of) is that some extract
    kits com...

    Is it still in secondary? After cold crashing, you can test gravity just to see where you are.
    I have heard people boiling DME and pitching more yeast, but I kind of wanna see how this comes
    out. I am...

  • Posted in thread: dry hoping on 04-20-2012 at 07:07 PM
    I personally never dry hop on yeast. Either in a secondary or in the serving keg.I have a bit
    of OCD, and I agree with this. I like to let the yeast do its thing. Dry hopping for a week or
    2 before bo...

  • Posted in thread: How to add lemon/orange zest on 04-20-2012 at 07:04 PM
    I've zested in the secondary and dumped it in. It sinks and never makes it to the bottle. I
    agree with all of the above.

  • Posted in thread: Tangy / Twangy Taste on 04-20-2012 at 06:51 PM
    Thanks for all the help guys. It really has been a ton of help.I just cracked one of my
    pilsners, and it was cloudy, but tasted great, no tang. The previous ones were tangy but
    crystal clear. Weird. A...
