    hilma likes to pose too, when we decided to get her, there were no good rescues available and we were set on a certain type of dog(spitz), so we found a relatively local lady who did shows with her keeshonden and was having puppies for the next "generation", if there were more than 2 in the...

    Craft Breweries Not Dating Their Product

    In the EU, packing date and best before date have to be on the packaging, even with beer where it wouldn't matter(I snagged a bunch of cantillon bottles at the local alco store at a massive discount because "they were going bad".....

    Those in colder climates, how do you brew?

    Should I try with the dry (yeast that is)

    Have you guys tried mangrove jack yeasts or are they harder to get in the US? I really like their m20 and m21 wheat beer yeasts, much better than lallemand or fermentis dry yeast for wheat beers.

    i used to brew 5 gallon batches on a stovetop kettle, it worked fine most of the time with the occasional overboil accident. Switched to a 230v 2500W system after 1 year for ease of use, also those basic "teaurn" style systems are so cheap nowadays it's almost not worth going for a normal...

    Carbonating in a 15 litre drum, instead of bottles 🤔

    from a safety point of view, if you don't carbonate too heavily sure. from a mess point of view, you're gonna be cleaning a lot of spray and foam from things with the kind of taps that are normal for those...

    Most overrated beer

    how do you loathe heineken, it is at worst a rather inoffensive macro lager, it's worst quality a lack of any real character.

    @Jayjay1976 blue is "pro" line, so less weird functions, better internals(usually). Green is consumer, tends to have plastic gears and more excessive gadgets.

    heh, as a finnish person, we still do this every november, because even the best "3 peak" non-studded winter tires aren't as good as a proper studded winter tire
