  • I once won an argument with myself. I have been described as a handsome square jawed lunatic! I have a word for men whom can't lift their own body weight, women. A man should be able to process wild game, know how to woo a lady, and be well read. A man should also know either good whisky or good beer, know how to cook well, be passionate about what life has to offer, be humble, never be a braggart, be comfortable with who and what he is, be able to move beyond and learn from his failures, be good with at least one of the following disciplines; electrician, mechanic, or carpentry.

  • I watched beerfest and googled homemade beer. It's all a blur from there! I'm an AG brewer. I'm neither a hophead nor a malt crazy... I'm both. If it's a well made brew I'll probably enjoy it. Not a big drinker but love good bier and food. As such I take as much pleasure in a 3.5% bier as I do a 10.5%.

    It irks me that many people simply don't recognize the validity of others views because X view
    isn't reflective of their experience. My taste buds are different from yours, my brew house is

    I kept a wee heavy in primary for almost 4 months due to getting busy, was greatly ticked off
    thinking it was ruined. Instead it was one of the best beers I ever brewed. No worries of
    autolysis in sma...

    From the title I thought you were going to be bragging on the brew onsite. Big congrats and
    good luck on your capitalist pursuits! Pleasing your fellow man and providing services for fees

    I have been using this yeast for years and love it. I have fermented it in the low 60s many
    times, especially at 62 or 63 Fahrenheit. With the recent cold front my pantry has been a good
    bit colder an...

    dmtaylor, that looks like the recipe provided by the company to customers prior to the sale of
    the brand.

    As someone who never had the beer this may be an odd post. I just thought of this beer earlier
    today and googled it. I listened to a recent BN podcast with Pete Slosberg as guest. He didn't
    talk much,...

    ueastfornrains my other experiences were a first go because I couldn't find my packet of dry

    I think people really overestimate how much the quality of well kept hops drop off with time.
    I've used 2013 hops I got for $5/pound off YVH and got plenty of flavor out of them.It's very
    variety depe...

    First like most things in brewing there is fairly well defined science that addresses a mash's
    ability to convert starch into sugar. Brad Smith does a good job with it here.As for the beer
