I always seem to miss it...not this time. ;D

I bought the last 4 pack in Dover.

Statewide there was only 10 cases allotted...maybe when the new site in NC goes operational we'll see more of the seasonal stuff.

General Homebrew Discussion / Basement brewery

Whew, haven't been able to keep up.

I have just about completed our basement brewery project.

This will be so nice, I'm tired of dragging brew equip from basement to garage to kitchen to shed to guys know what I'm talking about.

Upgrading the beer dispensery unit to a 3 faucet deal, and got a dedicated lagering fridge.

Life is good!

Can this be done safely...?

I have a few racks of them and would rather use them than buying a bunch of 375ml bottles, corks, and corker.

Just worried it will blow the bottle or at a minimum blow past the seal.

Any thoughts?

BTW I made the Austin Trad Mead kit and the Numbers were right on +-.002 the mead has been racked twice since production Thanksgiving 11.

Who has gone and was it worth it?

Thinking about going for a mid-life crisis trip LOL!!

Obviously lots of good beers, but hows the rest of the experience?

I've only flown through Denver and C-Springs,so I don't know the area much.

General Homebrew Discussion / Hello...
« on: February 05, 2012, 10:41:55 PM »
Hi all you lovers of grain, hops and yeast.

I'm new here and am excited about growing my knowledge of brewing.

I'm a retired USAF C-130, C-141, C-5 Crew Chief and Flight Engineer, I have been brewing off and on since 1997.

My brewing career got started on a Mr. Beer kit, I was on a brewing hiatus until 2008 and got back in. I have recently made the jump/investment into AG brewing.

What can I say I love beer!
