you know the new trend to go green
Well i was thinking home brewers have been doing this for years

from using old copper around the house to reusing bottle & kegs. Now the release of C02 is bad for the enviroment but hey screw it.

I think all home brewer should get a nobel peace prize

If al gore can get it for a movie then i should for brewing beer
LOL

Don't worry about it... The fermentation process is carbon neutral...

ie
The sugars that are broken down come from the starches that came from a plant which is solar powered

The burning of propane is not carbon neutral, nor is most of the electricity in your ac (temp contol) but hey you can win everything and big brewers have most of those emissions anyway...

It's all moot anyway. We need to just brew beer and prepare.

Just to prove what an ass hat Al Gore is, keep your fermentors and plants in very close proximity. The plants LOVE the C02!

I would make a joke about Man-beer-pig... but that would be in poor taste.

See what I did there?

I would really like to build a nice house that was self sufficient of both water and energy. Perhaps even food if I could design a setup that was easily maintained through automation of water and fertilizer.
