The only problem I had was entering the brewing date and the bottling date. It accepted everything else.

I try to give my friend at our LHBS a list of ingredients I need about a month in advance. Especially if it is a unique ingredient. He always has what I need.

You put more time and effort into maintaining your home brew equipment than you do your car.  :)

You can make your shipping labels on these shipping companies website. Attach it to your package and drop it off without talking to anybody. I have done that several times without any issues.

enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing. I have a confession, I have abused yeast also. I am glad I am not alone any more.  ;)

I usually dump one batch about every 5 years. Either thru infection, which happens to all of us, or beer I don't like and I need the room. Cheers!

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Blue moon Belgian Pils

That seems complicated. I believe simple is better, especially with a pils.

I like to start at soon as possible. Sometimes 6 or 7 AM. That way I drink coffee when I brew. If I start in the afternoon I tend to want to drink my homebrew. I prefer not to drink and brew.
I do the same. Also, I couldn't agree with you more about not drinking and brewing. I think it is wise since you're dealing with hot wort and propane which produces CO.

Welcome. Lots of good advice here. I love a good German Pilsner. It's a great challenging beer to brew. It's also a very satisfying beer to drink. Sante!

My saison won a silver (19D). First time for me winning anything in this competition. Thanks to all who judged and volunteered!
I normally go through the Minneapolis region. But, I went through Indy since it is my home town. They also say that the Minneapolis region is tough. I think because everybody brings their A game in all the regions. I know that's my thinking.

I saw ELP in concert either in 1976 or 1977 (I don't remember the exact date). They had a full orchestra with them. One of the best shows ever!
