    Coor's Hard Seltzer

    Passed a billboard on my way home from work today, apparently Coors is in the hard seltzer game. Just wondering if I'm missing something? I mean, they already have coors light which is probably closer to a lightly hopped seltzer than a beer, except I'm not even sure there is any hops. I imagine...

    Are farts contaminating your brew equipment? ⁰

    Great question. It's that question that has been lingering (pun intended) in the back of your mind for some time. You know the familiar situation: it's Saturday morning and you are diligently cleaning and sanitizing your gear for your next step when it hits you... The paint would peel, the...

    Nutrients for wild fermentation?

    Title is the question. Bought a 1/2 gal of local apple juice poured a glass and kinda forgot about it in the back of my fridge. About a week or so later I noticed the jug was getting "puffy." I poured a small glass and it tasted great. I decided to use it as a starter for a wild ferment of...

    Thame of Groans

    I was going to ride my bicycle but I couldn't: too tired Riding a bike in front of a bus makes you feel run down, but riding a bike behind a bus is guaranteed to make you exhausted.

    Silicone sponge

    Anyone tried a silicone sponge yet? Looking for thoughts and opinions. My SIL has and loves how it never gets stinky. She lives way out of state so I haven't tried hers, but was looking into them for work. We always have a nasty sponge in the break room that I can smell almost as I enter. I was...

    Berliner on a cider cake?

    Before anyone blows up, I'm making this with some pilsen lme. My time invested will be minimal and I am comfortable with a complete loss if it sucks. Aside from the typical "don't do it!" Why not? Background: I'm going to be transferring a "pom" cider fermented on 71b this weekend. I have been...

    How to avoid a BMC-lite

    We have all done things that we aren't exactly proud. I do have to say that I'm not a fan of BMC, however sometimes you just have to drink one. I know it's easy to jump up and say, I will never drink that swill, however some social situations it would be impolite to not accept the drink. Usually...

    Cake beer - Did Ismell finally go Pro?

    Probably coincidence, but maybe, just maybe Ismellweird has something to do with this brew at the MN state fair. Cake beer - check Kato - check Geographic location - close enough to wonder. Cake’d Up Celebration Beer Yes, a lightly hopped ale with a deep-fried vanilla cake flavor, from...

    Drunken Wisdom

    Sometimes the obvious does not seem obvious after a few too many drinks. The kind of place where you share things that may have been preceded with statements like: It seemed like a good idea at the time... Or Hey y'all watch this...

    UnKeezing a keezer

    I'm storing some things for a friend who will be out-of-state for a few years for work. Many of the thing I'm storing, he won't be able to use due to space and lack of need. Among the items is a decent sized chest freezer. Since I have it I was considering converting to a keezer/fermentation...

    Oxidized QDs

    Oxidized QDs, title says all. I took two partial kegs over to a small bbq at a mates place. The next morning I stripped down the kegs, did a full Starsans soak per usual protocol, transferred the Starsans to a bucket for small parts cleaning and sealed the kegs so they are ready for next use...

    Don't get too wasted while brewing or this may happen

    Don't drink and brew friends... Naw, just kidding. I know better. I don't think I've ever not had a brew or cider or toddy of some sort unless I didnt want or didn't have one. But that doesn't make it safe. One of my good mates had a bit of a major mishap. I should disclose that he maybe, just...

    How was your day?

    My day was awful. On a scale from 1-10, it was kinda like the Tiantic was filled with penguins, puppies, kittens and baby seals and crashed into Chernobyls nuclear power plant causing a time loop where every day you only had warm flat Mickey's Fine Malt Liquor to drink that was recycled through...

    Bend breweries?

    Passing through Bend Oregon next week. Only have time to stop at maybe 2 brew-pubs. Any recommendations? I've already been to Deschutes, I'm looking for good local small brew place. Food not necessary, but not unwelcome either.
