FERMENTING: Heady Topper Clone?
CONDITIONING: 40 gallons KBS clone in a Jim Beam Barrel (since 11/24/12)
DRINKING: Smoked Robust Porter, Orange Coriander Pale Ale #5
THINKING: first foray into lagers?

5% improvemnt in efficiency, quicker brew day, and people asking you beer questions.

You will also notice the cute females looking at you dreamily factor go up by 10 fold

You should get a 10% improvement in efficiency and a 5% improvement in yeast attenuation. Plus, now you have the option of pitching yeast from your beard.

Nice work. I have a long goatee and I get my best brew results when I braid it. More likely to hit the target OG, I don't miss my hop additions, etc. Smart move sir.

what you have, sir, is a Facial Yeast Slant. all you gotta do is shake the face to pitch the yeast.

Im culturing pacman and conan in my beard.. I thought i was the only one.

I wanted to add that this is only half a joke.. If you now drink from a juice container after having a beer you will find that it ferments.. im not joking

One of the side benefits that I never even imagined was how quickly people would respond to my threads, especially this one. The beer Gods really do smile on those who have beards.

You get instant brewmaster kowledge, and bikers will leave you alone.

If I was you, I'd go for the Keisel. The ladies love them. So do the birds.
