man, that is NOT good.  threads like these make me reconsider beer altogether.   :-\

I wouldn't go that far man...just be moderate about it.  There's no reason to get all paranoid and be one of those anti-alcohol kooks.  Man, I don't get those people.  It's like one drink equals alcoholic to them; fakkin' insane.

We're fakkin insane here in America. Certain tests I've taken had questions like "do you drink and how much". Only found out later that if one answers more than 1-2 drinks a week they are considered to be alcoholic. Those tests wouldn't past muster in Europe for sure. It's our puritanical heritage and a holdover from the teetotaler movement. Bastards.
Oh my gad...that's insane.  Who comes up with this stuff?  Fak do they know?

Way to go dude.  All grain is awesome.  Brewing is awesome.  Best hobby I've picked up to date.

Saw this on Beer Advocate, it's pretty maddening.  I wasn't planning to watch the wedding anyway.  It's too bad the mass produced beers like Bud gave beer such a bad name.

Kegged a Mild in 5 days- force carb and drinking the next. It was clear and tasty.
Amazing...

I wonder if there really are only a few styles that work well doing this.  Probably an oatmeal stout wouldn't be good with a 5-7 day turn around, no?  Maybe a pale?

I should try this, I just typically do 2 weeks in the primary then 1 week in the keg.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Complements
« on: April 25, 2011, 08:29:02 AM »
There are two kinds of compliments on home brew.

The ones where they say "That's great!" and when you offer them another they say "No, I've had enough, but thanks anyway". :'(

And those that say "Can I have another"? before you ask. ;D


Tonight someone said:"I can drink this all day"..... I took that as a compliment.
This happened to me just today.  I gave some beer to a work friend and he told me it was awesome.  I asked for objective criticism on them and he said one of them needs work and the other one he could drink all day.  Good enough for me.  
I like compliments as much as I like objective criticism to help me improve my beers.

Spell check at your local newspaper has been out-sourced to another country.

Would not surprise me a f*cking bit...

Actually that is a baby wild cottontail I have a tradition of catching
one every year and bringing it to my wife so she can have ewwwww and ahhhhhh time....


Yeah my cat sits @ the glass door watching the bird feeder and
wanting SOOOOOOO bad to get her paws on the feathered denzions.
She would not know what to do if she were outside since she has never
been out more than a few minutes in her 6 years of life.
Feral Cats make good target practice.

Same here, my cat is always meowing funnily at the birds and squirrels out the window.  He wouldn't know what to do with them if he got out, I don't think.  He's 9 years old and has only been out a few times ever, when he's been able to sneak out (that little bugger).

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Using two different yeasts
« on: April 23, 2011, 10:28:02 AM »
Funny this should come up.  Last night I had a discussion with a friend about using 2 yeasts in a beer.  It is my understanding that one dominates the other; whichever one takes off first.  But he seemed to think that you'd get qualities from both strains.  
I'm not sure as I've never done an experiment on this subject.

I believe it should also be, "Today, I decided to count them."

I believe you're thinking of the Rocky Mountainian Dark Ale Secret Society.
No, I think he's talking about the CDA (Cross Dressing Amateurs Cabal), certainly a fun group to belong to but they're fighting an uphill battle

Yeesh, I'd hate to be apart of that cause...

What could be more arrogant, shallow and pedantic than the North westerners trying to claim this beer style as their own when they didn't even create it!!
Yes, we all get together monthly and plot how we can name a beer after one of our mountain ranges (that runs from Canada to California).  Muahahahahahahah  ::)

Wouldn't surprise me...
It's fitting that your avatar looks a bit like Mulder.

Except the dude in my avatar was WAY cooler than Mulder would EVER be.
