    Autumn Seasonal Beer Lady Rumpkin Pumpkin Rum Ale

    Really cool to see this recipe still being used. My brother in-law is new to home brewing, and asked about pumpkin beers, which is what made me return to this place. My work and a couple of brewery business plans and other excuses had me leaving homebrewing for the last three or four years, but...

    Nice! Look like the bottles our own Redstone Meadery uses for their line, very attractive and of course easy to cap partials.

    Interested in thoughts on WHEN do you drink the mead you have been saving for a year or more? What is the right time? What is the oldest bottle that you eventually opened? I have a few from 2012 and 2013, and always torn between saving for later or enjoying now. Since this is the Post a Picture...

    The last bottle of my Peach Mead, made over four years ago, just decanted into a very cool bottle. Need to find an appropriate event to drink it!

    Maybe a cool growler thread?

    drinktanks.com Retail for $69.00, this one was $80 with a one year membership in the "Rickstar" club, which gets me $1 off pints and $2 off growler fills at the brewery, as well as special "member only" release parties and special tastings. Not a bad deal, if I only use it a few times a...

    Game of Thrones Mead

    Well, with the next season upon us, does anyone else have any GoT Mead from previous years to open next month?

    Growler, what's the point?

    Which is why I do not understand the various CO2 "Tap Cap" schemes for growlers, the one I pictured above has an optional cap to charge with CO2 and a picnic type tap. Four pints, the growler is gone, not a chance to oxidize or go flat, at least for me and those around me that share...

    Growler, what's the point?

    Another huge consideration for cans/bottles vs. growlers of the same beer... when was it canned/bottled? How has it been handled since? Temperature changes, sunlight? With a growler, you see it filled straight from the tap, as fresh as the pint that was pulled while waiting it to fill.

    Growler, what's the point?

    There is a cool factor for sure, but primarily because here in Colorado there are hundreds - if not thousands - of unique, limited release, exceptional craft beers produced locally that simply are not put in bottles or cans.

    well, that will have to wait, have not tried it in over a year, but back then had a really nice, slightly smokey, sweet taste of .. cranberries and clover? It has been a while, not sure why I am hanging on to it (along with several bottles of various meads made over the years) but will find the...

    Maybe a cool growler thread?

    Quick pic of three more, left to right, the ubiquitous but very cool Sierra Nevada, another one from Ricoli, and a very special one from Germany; Isar Brau which was one of the last independent breweries just south of Munich.

    Maybe a cool growler thread?

    Not sure if this will get any traction, or even worth the time, but I am like many out there that seem to accumulate growlers. I know some collect intentionally; for me, just seem to pick them up when I find myself at a new brewery without one to fill. Here is my latest, a stainless steel double...

    I like the name! Your post inspired me to hit the cellar and pull out a dusty bottle of mine, at least two years aged. The color is lighter than I remember, and it has cleared up so nicely.

    How did you keep the wasps and bees away? When I made a Bochet a couple of years ago, in my kitchen, they were swarming around the windows and oven vent, some even got in the house, it was crazy...
