Try it. My guess is that it will come out just fine. Wash the herbs you add first, but don't douse them in any sort of noxious chemical.

I'd replace "that fell into the dark abyss" with "that crossed the event horizon."

Also, use a different typeface for the text, so it stands out better.

Why not just call them and ask?

My guess would be no, they'd want you buy sanke kegs full of their beer. If you're buying commercial beer anyway, why not just get the proper fitting for your...

I've done it with success, where I moved one batch to secondary and brewed a second immediately thereafter. Both batches were of the same style, though. You obviously can't do this if you need a...

Lock the fridge and disconnect the tap from the keg inside.

If they have access to the fridge, all they'd have to do is get a party tap and stick it on the keg if they were really curious, even if...

I like the guest tap idea.

Holy crap, though, six ten-gallon batches at a time? Do you have tons of totally wicked parties or something? Sixty gallons would last me an awfully long time with...

Yeah, but then the oil leaks into your basement. :(

Seriously, though, you hit the bedrock in my back yard if you dig more than about 3 feet.

Man, that is wicked cool.

I wish we could have basements here in Texas, so I wouldn't have to sacrifice my garage for a workspace like this.

Dunno. It looked a lot like Corona, with a clear bottle.

Really? I didn't think it was stellar, but I didn't think that was terrible, either.

It tasted like a BMC american lager, except...

I was going to suggest this. Humor him the first time, and keep the bottles in the garage. Later, show him that they haven't exploded.

Also, put them in a big rubbermaid bin just in case. You...

One of the related threads suggests filtering through a coffee filter to capture the lead pellets and glass shards.

Seems like a reasonable precaution, to me.
