I'm sad cause I just finished my IPA.....

I have a pale ale and a cream ale going, but it will be at least two weeks till I can drink either.

Lusky I still have my Mead

+1 to the pipeline. Morebeer offers free shipping on orders over $60 I think, and they're prices are reasonable. Just buy one yeast, and plan beers around reusing that one yeast if money is the issue. You can brew every 2-3 weeks doing this, and have 30 gallons of homebrew stockpiled in no time.

THANK GOD this ended the way it did, I was hoping nothing was poured down the drain.

On the topic...I have a High Gravity Bourbon Barrel Bottle Aging, my Breakfast Porter in bottles ready to drink, my IPA will be bottled tomorrow, and a hard cider to bottle next week.

Once I get my MLT built I'll be doing another Brown ale. Should be set for a while.

Don't do it!

I hate to bring this up in a thread that was moving along just fine until now, but it has to be done...

First of all, it's illegal, despite what any of HBT's resident armchair lawyers will often wrongly assert. and there is not a single legal loophole or trick that allows you to get around this. It is what it is... no matter how you try and slice it, it's illegal, period.

However, simply being illegal isn't enough to deter some people. Including myself, as a matter of fact. But I still would NEVER put out a tip jar. Why? Because it's unbelievably tacky. Only somebody with absolutely no class whatsoever could do such a thing. Could you imagine if it were anything other than homebrew? Say we were avid bakers instead - it'd be totally tasteless and sleazy if you had people over for dinner and, when bringing out the pies, you put out a tip jar as well. It's totally unthinkable to me. There'sno good reason for homebrew to be any different.

If you want to share your homebrew, then just do it in a way that's both legal and shows a bit of class. There's no need to cheapen the experience and the act of sharing for the sake of a couple bucks. And in the end, you will likely be rewarded even better for your total generosity, both personally, and through the appreciation and generosity in kind from others.

I think it was a joke.
