    I didn't think you would be able to and I had never heard that. The guy that told me stated he
    didn't know how true that was and that it was F-15 pilots that told him I damn sure
    won't tak...

  • Posted in thread: This Place is Like WebMD for Yeast on 07-27-2014 at 09:41 PM
    I don't read up on a yeast prior to purchase, otherwise I'd never buy any yeast for the reasons
    the OP mentioned. But once I've committed to its use I do my research then to find out what
    pitch rates,...

    In London you'll find a lot of malt forward bitters, like Fullers ESB or London Pride.
    Londoners seem like to their beers a little sweeter and maltier then the rest of the country.

    Can you give specific cities? All the common European beers that you find in the States are
    also popular all over Europe. But if you give specific cities or regions of the country(ies) we
    can give you...

    Westy is always busy. It took several times before I got through. The cafe there is always a
    sure bet though.

  • Posted in thread: How much do you brew yearly? on 07-15-2014 at 05:39 PM
    I brew outside so it can be tough to get out during the Michigan winters but I try to brew
    twice a month on the average and 15 gallon batches. I'm up to 200 gallons exactly

    Midwest ships to APO. Great selection and prices. My only complaint would be viability of
    liquid yeast after shipment and the epic delays of the APO system, but that problem isn't
    unique to Midwest.Di...

    An abbey ale should be a big beer. What's the FG? Generally the heavier beers take longer to
    carb. So the recommend 2-3 week carb time is more for the session beers. With healthy yeast you
    can carb a ...

    Lots of techniques on this forum to keep temps low without costing lots of money or involving
    builds. Search for swamp coolers. That being said, if you've done several batches and enjoy the
    result, ev...

    Lol. They were definitely talking about Greene king. Always the worst beer selection. Free
    house is the way to go.I agree that Greene King IPA is rather bland. However, some of their
    other lines are p...
