General Homebrew Discussion / Re: The Decline of Homebrewing
« on: September 24, 2016, 08:56:37 AM »
I've found that I'm so busy since I retired that I actually have less time to brew than when I was working.

Well, that's what drive, creativity and ambition, plus a partner with at least the ambition part will get you

I would guess it means de-oxygenated water.

It would be a much better world if we created more brewers than lawyers. :)

Belle's in progress. Saisonstein is going to happen when it cools down a bit since I consider that flaw there.

I continue my march towards knowing all the Saison strains I can! What do you think?

I haven't. In fact I've held onto kegs of "session" strength Belgians that I've open fermented for nearly 3 years without noticing oxidation. The key is not to get lazy and get your fermenters closed when primary ends.

Do it!  A whole new life opened up for me once I retired!

You retired? Could have fooled me!

Why do you think I live here?  ;)

Because of the warrants in 32 other states?

Busy weekend for me

   15 gallons of Saison Experimentale with Yeast Bay strains
   5 gallons of a Kettle-Soured No-Chill Extract Sour Wheat
   3 gallons of Almond Mead
   2.5 gallons of Little Puca, an Irish Farmhouse Ale with a Fantome Brett culture on the PicoBrew

Saison Dupont III - aka "Avec"

Don't act surprised. :)

Check with Debbie Cerda - she was working the issues in the past.

I would prefer not to have anything other than beer/water/crackers during judging, but since most competitions occur in the morning and I'm a computer programmer by profession - caffeine keeps me from killing people and is therefore mandatory.

Just glad the hard work is noticeable (although I noticed that it was harder to get back on the horse today. Stupid horse.)

I think one of the best things about this years conference for me was the number of people I had coming up to me to say how they were going through the same change and that I was serving as an inspiration. I haven't inspired much in this world, so that f##king rocks.

I also think I'm going to have to start a "Homebrewed Weight Loss Society" just for giggles. :)
