I was just talking to my LHBS owner, and also marveling at this fact! Not only that I can make it, but it's not that hard...and it's great beer! Cheers!

Actually I have. Beer is one of the few things that turns out well in spite of the care it receives. Plants and fungi are a few others that do too.

Exactly, DeadYetiBrew. Not all of us are pretty enough to take up the world's oldest profession if civilization crumbled.

Yeah, but I'm guessing that when the world ends, all of the barley and hop growers, the maltsters, and wyeast and white labs will probably go out of business

That's why my survival plan involves, after raiding a walmart for a shotgun, ammo, and a chainsaw, fighting my way through the zombie hordes and setting up my new kingdom in an lhbs...I'll start trading un-infected "barley water" for nubile and attractive females....

Someone's gotta start re-populating the new world...

I'll have to harvest yeast after awhile and grow barley and hops on the roof top...but who said being an emperor would be easy.

You may want to plan ahead and get your shotgun and chainsaw now, because depending on how far away from walmart you live, it may be hard to get through the zombie hordes.

Good thinking!!!!!!



(Now I do intend to dress better though. No one's gonna trade wenches for magic barley water to a bum dontcha know.)

Now the question is, can I make the chainsaw run on alcohol???
