The Pub / Fabric made from beer using acetobacter

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?

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.

Beer Travel / One afternoon in Memphis
« on: February 18, 2015, 01:15:09 PM »
Heading to Memphis for work next month and have one afternoon to myself.

I need two things.
1 - Can't miss Pork BBQ
2 - Can't miss local beers

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.

"Hey college kid, try this beer. Don't swallow, that would be illegal." - teacher

"I would never think of swallowing beer." - no college kid ever

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.

General Homebrew Discussion / Mosher's new book
« 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?

The Pub / Hot Beer?
« on: February 05, 2015, 10:31:51 AM »

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.”
