the Argus Brewery in chicago is kind of cool also. It is from the old Schlitz building where they housed their horses. still has the functioning old elevator the sized of a wagon
I actually just did this a couple weeks ago. The water sat overnight then I used the water for brewing 2 more batches. I collected the water in a 20 gallon food safe garbage can. The wort from both batches tasted good. Now to taste the beers since they are done fermenting!

Thanks, I'm going to give it a go this weekend. Gonna save the water from Saturday's brew and use it for the mash and sparge for the Sunday brew.
I've had a few Ballast Point beers while visiting California and they were all terrific. They just hit Illinois, but I imagine this won'thttp://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/community/news/show?title=ballast-point-homework-series
dayum! 18% crystal. i'd like to taste this before making it sometime...
Dude, you (and many others) have to get over your fear of crystal. It's how you use it, not the amount that's there.
thanks for the great work korbinian - be sure to update once you have brewed it.http://forum.northernbrewer.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=89557
15% crystal 40 (he said I could even use more)
This leads me to another aspect of this whole conversation. I've always believed that driving tests in the US are way too easy. Knowing how to parallel park and make a K-Turn is a joke in the grand scheme of driving. I think everyone should be subjected to a few different courses, maybe even over a few days.
I was really lucky that my dad and grandfather both took the time to teach me the skills i really needed for driving on the road. They would take me to this bus depot parking lot when it was raining and make me spin the car on purpose to get a grasp of what it was like to lose control of the vehicle, how to avoid it and how to recover from it. They also did this with 2 different cars in both the rain and the snow and I have to tell you, the first time you do it its scary as hell but after 4 or 5 times it becomes natural to just turn into the skid and recover from it. And when that skid happens in the real world, and it will, you won't panic, you'll just react.
Just think about what you learned in your driving class and what its really like on the road. Its a huge difference and unfortunately it takes time to build up the experience needed to actually be a good competent driver.
Can you imagine if we let people fly planes with the same amount of training?
I think there's been a bit of a diaspora since the ownership change, though I think to some degree there were always people leaking out to other local breweries. This is good for the local craft beer scene. I'm not sure if the rate has increased, but I bet it has.
I actually really enjoy Rogue's 7oz beers. That seemed like a good size for a big beer, for me. I don't think they were very popular though.I bottle part of a batch of my RIS in 7oz bottles for my wife. She usually doesn't want a full 12oz of something big.
