Default Brewing Under The Influence

It's a amazing the "minor" details you can overlook when Brewing Under The Influence. I got all the way through my 70 Shilling brew session, ranting about what a POS Beersmith is because I'm a 1/2 gallon high going into my fermenter and the OG is 7 points low, only to realize...the instructions call for a 90 minute boil. Not a 60 minute boil.

And apparently my vision suffers under the influence as well. My yeast nutrient and irish moss were sitting beside my glass of beer the entire brew session and it never occurred to me that I should actually put them to use.

Brew sober my friends!

Waitaminute, you can brew sober? When did this start?

Brewing without drinking upsets Ninkasi, and that is NOT a place you want to go, my friend. Make lists and plan well before you begin brewing and drinking. Make sure drinking homebrew(s) is on that list. Don't think you can get fancy and skip an important step like drinking while you brew.

Embrace the chaos and enjoy happy accidents that sometimes accompany the miracle of beer.

So when did the number of posts one has made translate into how proficient they are at brewing?

post count is forum software's oldest ball busting, joke around vessel. lighten up and quit being so literal. maybe you two should have a drink.

it clearly doesn't really have anything to do with anything

I do my best work BUI. And if I screw up I blame it on having 1 too many.
