yso191,

Where do you get your oxygen exchanged? I thought one had to have a prescription for that sort of deal...

Unlike denny, once I get it in my head that the beer is unintentionally infected I can't enjoy it no matter what it tastes like, because to me it just tastes bad. even when others say they enjoy it.
Exactly the same for me, as well.

Sorry for your loss, Paul. Where do you think this might have come from?

I don't believe in naming any beer after something that it's modeled after. It's your beer, you name it! Not because of any copyright issues, but because of a pride thing. Why wouldn't you want to name your own beer?
As long as he is not calling it a Blonde Stout or a Black India Pale Ale I'm good.  ;)
Would you rather is was called Cross Dressing Amateur?

I don't really see the issue...he can call his beer whatever he wants. It's his version of that beer. Hell, if the brewer wants to call his beer a pale stout, more power to him. I probably won't drink it.

Funny how "cascadian dark ale" just didn't stick, eh.
I still see it around and roll my eyes every time I see it. I see black IPA a lot more than Cascadian Douchewater Ale.

Not saying you are wrong, just find it interesting. FWIW "smoke" is a sure sign of pedio infection in beers that smoked malt is not present, or charred boil kettle can be ruled out.

Interesting, I'd never heard smoke from pedio before. I always thought that was just buttery/butterscotch with slight or strong sourness.

There's another one I remember.  San Diego, Tom made a Black IPA with sinamar, which, to me was still too roasty.
Yeah, but it was STILL the best CDA I've ever tasted!
Maybe I should start calling it Denny's Favorite CDA? ;)


I like it! haha

It's surprisingly good! I had it in Seattle at NHC. Balanced flavors.  :)

Me too.  That booth had some really good beers at Club Night.
Apparently you're not too old to remember a sip of beer during a beer conference two years ago. Great! ;) 
Was that the one where you brought the Cross Dressing Amateurs beer?

Good call. I still get 5 gallon kegs since I never know if I'll want to jump to 5 gallon batches again someday. Right now I do 4 gallon batches. Just have the extra head space, not too big a deal.

I wish the 3 gallon kegs cost less. But they cost just as much, and more in some cases, than the 5 gallon kegs. It's crazy. I usually put in the comments of the order to make sure the posts can be removed before shipping.

Beverage elements are currently selling 5-gallon AEB kegs for $99.95.

I think it's great they warn you of issues with removing the posts. I had issues with 2 kegs and had to send them back to Northern Brewer. Fortunately they took them back and sent replacements that the posts could be removed from. I don't understand why they manufacture these kegs with posts that are difficult and/or made to not be removed. What about pieces of hop debris? That's not just gonna come out of there when running sanitizer through the posts. I'm not all that worried about that as I try pretty hard to keep hops out of the keg when racking to the serving keg. But still...it's just an annoyance.

This was a most delicious bitter from around the new year. Not a recent brew, but post worthy, I think. I miss that beer...

Anyone familiar with Kegco? They are selling brand new 5 gallon kegs for around $100 a piece
I'm not, but I'm curious about them as well. I have 3 of the new AEB kegs. I like them. But it sucks the poppets aren't removeable. But, they can be removed with a needle nose pliers and replaced with universal poppets. I'm just about to retire an old finicky keg I think and get another new one.
