    Extract question

    Ok, I came off sounding a bit assholish. I probably should have phrased my post a little differently.

    Why do you ask this question here? Do you not have instructions for what you are attempting to do? Not trying to be facetious, but there is a search function in this forum that will really help you with questions like this.

    First time? Go to one of those vendor sites like more beer dot com and buy an extract kit. Seriously, keep it simple, if you have success with the kit then you can move forward.

    CO2 Tank Price Check

    My local welding supply used to fill my fancy 5 lb. aluminum tank for $15. When the cert ran out on that he just grabbed a full 5 lb. bottle from his supply the floor and kept my shiny old bottle. Said it will get tested and put back into circulation. Cost was still $15 for the exchange. Now I...

    California newport beach to the bruery?

    Since you will be in Fullerton area check out Evans (tap house) and Bootleggers. Also just a stones throw away is Taps Fish House and Brewery on the corner of Brea Blvd and Imperial Hwy.

    Why does all Samuel Adams Beer Taste Bad?

    Nope, 12 packs. Some of those SA mixed packs and Boston Lager. The beer tasted ok but had that dirty mop water smell.

    Why does all Samuel Adams Beer Taste Bad?

    I gave up on all Sam Adams beers last summer. Seems every single one of their beers had that dirty mop bucket smell going on.

    What to do in Vegas

    Check out Ellis Island, it's a little dive off the strip on Koval. They make their own beer, it's not great but not bad, and free if you play. They have an incredible BBQ that they fire up later in the afternoon. The café is pretty good with n old school American menu and super inexpensive. If...

    Seoul Food

    Was stationed in Korea 75-77. While the Bundingy(sp?) was just ok, no seriously they are horrible, you have to find the cart that sells the steamed mussles. Those things are incredible. Also look for the local Sogogi shop, Pork. They usually have a setup in the back where you can sit down and...
