I just don't want to get into any trouble. Not sure what the laws are.

It's not legal for us home brewers to ship beer. So we have to make more colorful descriptions.

Happy belated brew day! I spent a few hours yesterday brewing a gingerbread brown ale, which is happily bubbling away in my ale pail in our home office's comfortable 66 degrees.

Here's to brewing great beer!

Depends where your getting them from, some fresh hops are way more pungent. But here in Oregon i think we're lucky in that the brew shops get fresh hops direct from the growers only a week or two after harvest...

To tell you the truth, I've only smelt fresh hops once. They must have been weak in aroma cause the pellets were strong.

Your lucky, mine hates beer that is not sweet and tastes like a candy bar. Just stay stupid woman.

I think every home brewer should take a trip to the Sam Adams brewery in Boston during their lifetime, it's like the mecca for home brewers. During the tour they pass around cups of different grains and hops, encouraging guests to taste the grains as well as rub the hop leafs in their hands to get some great aromas. Mmmm, hops.

That sounds fun. Hmmmm, I think a trip next year might work. I would like to take a tour of Sam adams brewery (my name is Sam).

There ya go! It's a total blast, we take a visit there about once a year when we travel out to visit my parents back home. 10 minutes listening about ingredients, 10 minutes listening about the brewing process, then half an hour of drinking 3-4 samples of brews. That's about 2-3 free bottles-worth of Sam Adams depending on how close you are to the pitchers of beer once everyone has their tasting glass full! Plus you can pick up one of their signature pint glasses for free at a local restaurant when you order a pint.
