    I assumed that might be the case. Any thoughts on the legal hoops of getting it to where he can sell it? (Also, who is it that operates it?) I just can't figure out what happens between the contract brew-->selling at the popups. I know to contract brew you have to have a retailer or wholesaler...

    Do any of you guys know anything about Bierkeller (the brewery that sets up at the riverfront park)? It doesn't seem like they have a physical location (though their address shows online as Swamp Cabbage). I'm insanely curious how they're legally doing what they're doing. I've got an idea or...

    Champagne Yeast and Stuck Fermentations: Please Stop

    I’ve often heard champagne yeast called for as a solution for stuck fermentations. However, there are plenty of reasons not to and some reasons why using champagne yeast might actually make you unable to fix the problem. I also did a few trials with ale, lager, and champagne yeast to put some...

    Creativity in Recipe Creation

    New ingredients, new hops thrown at an old style, or some new pastry tossed into the fermentor is one way to do something new or different. This article proposes something a bit different in how you can push yourself to be creative when it comes to designing recipes...

    Collaboratively iterating a stout with 5 other brewers

    Five other brewers and I have spent this last year taking turns making small changes to a stout recipe and then passing it along to the next brewer to make the one change they thought would most improve the beer. Here’s where we’re at so far. https://brewublog.wordpress.com/stout/

    Habits, Methods, and Alcohol Consumption

    Some surveys lately have collected some good info about homebrewing and some of the things we do/who we are (the Brülosophy survey and the AHA survey come to mind). I have some questions that I think should be answered and that I’ll present back once analyzed. Some of these questions are dealing...

    Stop Worrying About Your Weight

    Brewers often use the weight of malt and hops when writing recipes, but this sometimes makes for confusion due to varying brewhouse efficiencies, batch sizes, and even units of measurement. I propose a different way to write recipes so that they may be universally understood and utilized...

    Right. I was thinking more like enough to brew one or two beers with. Maybe 10-12 lbs if it’s a base malt or 1-3 lbs for a specialty or accent malt. Shipping alone for a full sack would skyrocket that price if it were a monthly thing. I dont even want to think about it.

    So speaking from that side of things (I too am what’s i like to call “frugal”), would you be expecting a full sack of malt or like enough to make one or two beers with (I.e., 1-3 lbs. for specialty malts or accent base malts, or 10ish lbs for base malt that’s something like an heirloom variety)?

    Okay guys, I wanted a small sounding board for something. Say there existed a subscription service for craft malt--I'm talking the small craft malt houses that are starting to pop up but you can't really find their stuff outside of their locale. You get X amount of malt per month from a...

    Dip tube stuck in liquid out post. Help?

    When I was loosening the post, the dip tube was scraping the bottom of the keg (since it’s stuck in the post, it turned with it). I was also thinking the dip tube might be too long but I’m not sure. It seems to fit in the well/dip in the center of the keg, but it might not have been in the...

    Dip tube stuck in liquid out post. Help?

    I ended up taking a picture just because several people seem to be confused as to what I mean when I describe *where* the dip tube is stuck. ...and it won’t insert for some reason. Here’s the link: https://imgur.com/gallery/u7OTE

    Dip tube stuck in liquid out post. Help?

    The dip tube is not stuck in the keg. It’s stuck in the post just below the poppet. Or maybe my terminology is wrong, but it’s stuck in the portion that I’ve screwed off.
