So a week ago I was drunk and offered to brew a batch for barter. Here's the winner:

--------------------------------------------------


Hello fellow craigslister!!

How do you do on this fine afternoon? My name is Diane XXXXX (for now at least, I am getting married in six weeks!!) The wedding planning has been crazy, I am just looking forward to getting it over with. In any case, I am running low on funds, so I am exploring alternative options for drink packages. When I stumbled upon your ad, I thought you and I could really help each other out. So here is the deal. I need a keg of beer for my reception. It's going to be a pretty classy affair, so I was hoping to get a barrel of my fiance's favorite beer, Milwaukees Best. After pricing it out at a few different locations around town, I have come to the realization that it will not fit within our budget. My question for you is this: Could you brew me a keg of beer that is exactly like Milwaukees Best? It would need to fool all the guests into thinking they were really drinking Milwaukees Best (I don't want to get off on the wrong foot with the in laws). Let me know if this is even possible, and how much you would charge.

Thank you, have a wonderful afternoon

Diane XXXXXX, aka Simply the Best. (aka Little Miss Sunshine).

Pick up two cases of the swill for 15 bucks, pour into a purged corny, charge with CO2 and you are golden.

So what will you charge for your efforts.

Six weeks to perfect a batch of American light lager...you better get cracking!

As I recall, you brew 5-10 gallon batches, and you're gonna need to get her 15.5 gallons of Beast Clone. Might I suggest making about 35 gallons, 5 gallons at a time, each with a subtle variation? Then you take 3 of the closest matches and blend them into one Sanke.

Got a filter setup? That'll help speed the process and get you the perfect clarity you'll need.

The only way to save money on the Beast is to whore for the Beast. Yeah, I'll buy her two kegs, for EF and EF 2 Mouth.
