I had good results with a cutting wheel. There were a lot of sparks. Took about 30 mins including a rough smoothing of the edges.

I have great results with dozens of ales at 70-74. Haven't needed a "swamp cooler" and lagers aren't worth my trouble. Stouts, pale ales, cider and mead keep me busy.

I've personally noticed minimal differences in cellaring an already-aged imperial stout. If a brewery releases a "green" beer and charges $20 I would pass. Living in an apartment doesn't allow me...

I agree, especially with a 600% mark-up. Doesn't this sale offer violate some terms on the board?

You'll likely be pouring foam until your ale settles back to a lower pressure. It's an easy fix but may take several days to settle back.

Bell's Barrel-aged Batch 9000 at 14%. Big, bold and boozy. The rest of my night in Kalamazoo is a bit fuzzy.

We stopped by on a slow Wednesday afternoon. I'm fairly sure the owner is retiring and it's not just a business decision. It's a simple operation and the beers were solid.

There is a reason many Big Bucks have closed. The beer was okay, the food is greasy and the service is slow. Their "artisan vodka" may have just been a well pour.

Picked up 10 gallons for $50 in West MI for frozen cider. Prices will be going up to $6-7 gallon. Hill Bros estimates less than 15% production.

Exploding glass bottles are definitely possible. I had to pick up glass fragments from 10 feet away after a fairly loud explosion. Great education on the need of stabilizer when back-sweetening cider.
