I'll take that batch as an...

I have some Apfelwein that is exactly the same. It is very clear, but still smells and tastes like yeast. Everyone says wait. It has only been a month. Some books say to just wait a year, but...

I'm less than a mile from either Dragonmead or Kuhnhenn's right now because I work in Warren. But I don't ever want to taste anything like that Belgian Trippel for a long, long, long time. I had a...

Oh, let's not be mean. After all, how many wine emergencies do we get to handle around here that don't involve wine hypochondria or bottle bombs?

Nevermind.

I just went to the microbrew tasting at the Michigan Renaissance fair. They had FOUR microbrew beers to taste (wow! what a great showing!). This is how I rate them:

That's a good tip, I wouldn't have thought of that. Maybe a medium sized chest freezer would be best, not a huge one. This is a great hobby!

I don't want to bottle beer, so I want a simple keg system. Oh yeah, and I want it as cheap as possible, of course. I mean, not THAT cheap, I can maybe spend a few hundred $$$.
