Pretty neat idea. I can't imagine it being very cost effective.

Beer Recipes / Stone releases official Levitation Ale recipe
« on: March 24, 2015, 12:40:13 PM »
Following the release of the recipe for Stone Pale Ale, Stone has now released the official recipe for Levitation. Note the relatively high and short mash.

It is sad that Levitation is going away. I cannot count how many of these I have consumed over the years.

The Pub / Beer Themed Baby Bottles?
« on: March 03, 2015, 12:25:59 PM »
Not sure how I feel about this. I don't necessarily feel it will lead to underage drinking, but it's a little odd. I guess it isn't much different from Tiny Pliny shirts from Russian River.

Other Fermentables / Bee Hive Honey Tap

Just saw this in the news... pretty neat for you apiarists out there. Kickstarter launches on the 23rd. Looks like one could skip the fogging and removing of the combs.

General Homebrew Discussion / Wedding beer names
« on: February 17, 2015, 08:28:48 AM »
Need some help with catchy names for five wedding beers.


IPA - Leaning towards "Hoppily Ever After IPA" - I'm sure it has been done a million times, but it works.
Coffee Stout - "Waffles' Coffee Stout" - I call my lady Waffles, happy mistake from a drunken morning years ago
80/- - "No You Can't Wear a Kilt Scottish Ale"
Saison - ????
All Nelson Kolsch - ????

Kegging and Bottling / Picobrew announces its second product
« on: February 11, 2015, 08:11:12 AM »
Picobrew just launched KegSmarts on Kickstarter. Looks like it simply weighs the keg to determine how much beer you have left in the keg.

Edit - Just noticed they also have a keg jacket that appears to have a heater in it for folks that ferment in cornykegs and it is controlled by the same unit.

Equipment and Software / Beer Saver on kickstarter
« on: February 09, 2015, 11:45:50 AM »
This seems like a good idea if you are like me and drink a large format beer over the course of a few hours. Doesn't look like it will work with champagne or Belgian bottles.

« on: February 06, 2015, 08:26:40 AM »
I've heard a new book from Mosher was coming, but I just noticed it was listed on Amazon for pre-order and will ship in a few days. Anybody know any details?

My favorite line - A pamphlet first published in 1641 with the title “Warm Beer” cautioned that although a cold drink is pleasant when one is thirsty, “pleasant things for the most part are very dangerous.”
