The proposed CA state law that will allow non profit homebrew clubs to sell beer 2x a year is actually in direct conflict with the federal law. The CA ABC even mentioned that regardless of state law...

I think you are on to something. Everything that I have read/heard said that pitching warm, even just intially, can lead to off flavors. I bet it can take at least 5-6 hours to get the beer down to...

Now I don't send beer via the USPS but I am sure that a lot of people do. The cost to prosecute a case for someone sending a few bottles of homebrew would far, far outweigh any benefit. Think of...

Yep...that is a Coopers fermenter. I still have one in my garage. They work great and are easy to clean. I have since moved on to "bigger and better" fermenters but those are still pretty awesome.

I think it is funny when people refer to a six pack as "costing" 8.99. At least in CA the REAL cost is over 10 dollars once you factor in sales tax and CRV. Yet another reason I brew/drink my own!!
