    Sour Wheat Beer - 1 month - with bugs

    So keep in mind that this is from grain to glass in a month, but I kegged it. Obviously if you bottled this you'd want to let it ride as this beer easily could have gone down a few more points, but I was very happy with where it was and decided to keg it up. I made a sour wheat beer. It's...

    Texas Petition to allow pubs to sell their beer to distributors.

    There is a house bill in Texas that, if passed, would allow brewpubs to sell their beer to distributors and would allow breweries to sell their beer on sight. Currently breweries are only allowed to sell either on sight (brewpub) or to a distributor (for retail) and not both. If you live in...

    Low Gravity Rye with Brett L. - suggestions?

    I want to do a very sessionable light ale but pack in tons of flavor. I love brett funk so I thought that would be a good way to add in some extra flavor without having to up the ABV. or go insane on the IBUs. From what I've read you can expect brett to dry your beer out pretty significantly...
