Today is a sad day for me. Today I finished the last of my Fat Tire clone, I call it Big Rubber. It is very bittersweet, it was great tasting so everyone wanted it and I get to brew more...the kicker is im going off to the academy for 16 weeks and will not be able to brew. Guess I will finish off my pumpkin ale and hope my cider finishes soon. I guess in 16 weeks it will be brewtastic around here. I have a buddy getting married and he has comissioned me for some beer also. I will do 2 cornys of a wheat. May and June are gonna be super busy for me.

Better to have loved and lost than to have never have loved at all! 16 weeks isn't that long, there are plenty of recipes that call for a much longer ferment than that. You could have a celebration batch ready for when you get back. Just a thought.

Rest assured that when one Fat Tire clone dies...another is born.

I just gelatin-ed it earlier this week so it's not quite ready yet. It's a malt bomb; that's for sure!
Early brewers were primarily women, mostly because it was deemed a woman's job. Mesopotamian men, of some 3,800 years ago, were obviously complete assclowns and had yet to realize the pleasure of brewing beer.- Beer Advocate
