Going Pro / Re: Brewery Video

We were there earlier this spring, really enjoyed the beer. Our daughter lives in Denver and brought a couple growlers back to nebraska for our family reunion this weekend. Needless to say they didn't last long. Good job.

Going Pro / Re: Do you suppose I'd get sued...
« on: June 24, 2014, 07:39:45 AM »
Would you be competing against them in their marketing area? If not I doubt it would be that big of a deal. Could you imagine Sierra Nevada suing a girl named Sierra Nevada in Pakistan for naming her beer after herself?

except I can go out right now and buy a bottle of Fullers ESB. not at it's best to be sure but...

This is exactly why you will get sued. No question about it.  It's going to confuse people anyway. "Fuller's has a brewery here, now?" Which is exactly why the real Fuller's has copyright/trademark rights. To keep out imposters from profiting off their name.

I can't understand why you wouldn't want an original beer name. And unless you like working for free, don't open a brewery. ;)

I am opening a brewery later this year and now you are telling me I am not going to make any money, thanks for the let down :'( ;)

Personally I would up the base malts, but that's just my opinion. Make it nice and warm for those cold winter nights :)

No contamination, tastes perfectly good. In fact this happened in the last 2 batches, I've made it before with no problems. I used 1272 yeast.

I have a cream ale that is 5 weeks old and will not drop clear. I have never had problems with my beer getting sparkling clear. But this one just won't drop. It is carbonated and I need to serve it in a couple weeks. What can I do?

If you have the time, make your own.i made a chocolate raspberry port a few years back  and it was awesome.

In addition to buying a bottle now, I'd like to give this a shot soon.  Did you use a kit?  It would be great to do up a batch and see how it develops over the years.
Yes, it was a kit. I think it was about 6-8 years ago and I still have a couple bottles.

I don't live there but probably the best thing he can do is try to volunteer at local brewery's. He may have to shovel grain, but, hey, it's a start.

So I am starting this post so I can vent to others who may share the same pain as me. I feel like my  kids secretly plot to sabotage my home brew. The most recent distruction I noticed was at 7:00 this morning when I opened the fridge. I had rinsed some  Wehenstephen Wizen yeast about two weeks ago. It looked amazing and I had probably 700 mils of it just minding its business in the fridge. Well my youngest had turned the fridge to the coldest setting causing everything to freeze. My jar of yeast was frozen solid. I might have tried to salvage some of it but the lid popped off causing some of contents to go everywhere before it completely froze in the middle of the night.
I kinda guessed that, just being a smartass.

Instance two. So I often let my oldest help me out by adding hops during the boil or just tagging along to the
LHBS. About a month ago I did a batch late morning and she was helping as usual. I turned off the burner and put my immersion chiller in and went inside to get some coffee. When I opened the door to go back outside, the very sight of what she was doing horrified me. She had the end of the hose from the chiller where all the water comes out pointed right at my kettle. God knows how much of that water made it in there. She cried and I almost did with her.

So there's a couple of my stories, what have your minions done to you to sabatoge your brew?
yea, those darn teen agers, what ya goin do wit them

No not teenagers. I have a 6 year old, 3 year old and a two year old. All girls and there not always crazy. Just sometimes
