    Great beer talk with the owner/brewmaster at The Alchemist

    Just got back from a discussion at the local library with John Kimmich, the owner and brewmaster for The Alchemist brewery. Very cool - and he brought Heady Toppers for everyone! Happened to see a flyer for the talk at the local grocery store, or I never would have known about it.

    Still alive - just tackling a HUGE DIY

    Building my own house! My own two hands, plus a handful of hours of friend labor paid in beer. I've been toying with the notion of doing a 'build' thread but it's not really a beer related topic, unless you consider that it's really just a big container for the Keezer v2.0!!

    The 'Original' Keezer

    I hate to do it, but it has to go. Here it is before adding the last two taps: And after: See the build thread here. The only part not included in the sale is the manifold. I'm keeping that for Keezer v2. $600, no delivery ;)

    A couple new bottle labels

    Stole the image from the Frothingslosh "Stale Pale Ale" label that inspired the name "Stale Male Pale Ale."

    No gas - AGAIN!

    I thought I had found all the leaks in my manifold - pressure holding for well over a month, no bubbles when sprayed. Then I go to keg up some brew last night, and when I go to grab some CO2 to purge headspace - nada, zero, zip for pressure. Dead CO2 bottle. DAMN!!!!

    Ok guys, let's start trying to find a date that works! I'm thinking maybe start on a Saturday evening with some consumption, and start brewing in the AM on Sunday. :mug:

    LHBS no more - thank goodness for AHS!

    After a really disappointing interaction with my LHBS store, I finally gave up on them. Some really crappy attitude, from one of the owners, no less. It was too bad, because I like supporting the local businesses when I can. I even continued to shop there when the price of gas round trip...

    Raspberry Wheat

    Ok, so I usually just keg things, but Red asked me to brew up some raspberry wheat as a b-day gift for a friend of hers. It'll be bottled, so I figured I needed a label! Here is my first pass at it. Some beer and brewery info will go in the grey box on the right. Let me know what you...

    Tried to do waaay too much.

    Ugh, So yesterday the plan was to brew up 10 delicious gallons of EdWort's HPA. I was going to start heating my strike water around 10 am. Instead, I overslept and didn't even start getting my gear together until after noon! In addition to the regular activities of brewing, I had to...

    Half-assed Beer Dispensing

    So, I haven't had any time to put in on the Keezer™, but I needed to serve up some suds for a pool tournament I was hosting. Here is the uglyness that followed: 2 2x4 pieces, and some spare pipe insulation. Looked bad, worked great! I just drilled a beerline sized hole in the lid where...
