The fascination with football totally eludes me.  Guess that just gives more time to waste in other stuff!

Love football, but the fascination with fantasy football eludes me, i tried it a few times but i just find it boring and annoying.

You are absolutely a brewer and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. They were being elitist dbags, not to make you feel bad about yourself, but to make themselves feel superior. Bullies are everywhere unfortunately, but you don't need to be around them, and quite honestly, they don't deserve the privilege of your company.

I started with a Mr. Beer kit and made some of the crappiest beer on earth, but opening that first bottle when it was done was just as exciting as the last all-grain batch I brewed 13 yrs later.

This forum is the home to some of the most generous, down-to-earth and kindest people you will ever meet and you are more than welcome to be a part of it without judgment or ridicule. In fact, if you didn't immediately notice it, there is a whole forum section dedicated to extract brewing filled with people ready to answer your questions and share your experiences with.

I hope your experience doesn't tarnish your view of the hobby and just know that we are all here for you if you need any help.

Welcome to the family, cheers!

Please tell your customers if you are out of a certain ingredient. My LHBS didn't have c60 so they took it upon themselves to "make" c60 by giving me half c20 and half c40 because "its basically the same thing".

I now only shop there if I'm desperate for time and need something that will take a few days to get from Northern Brewer.

I’m not a beermaker and have zero science background (alas) but even I could tell that her claims and charges were nonsense.

I stopped reading right after this sentence. :/

Yeah, 20 minutes of my time, would have been probable of he'd bought a pint, most likely if he bought two and definite had he bought three!

That probably would've exceeded my niceness threshold.

The Pub / Beer drinking king dies in competition tragedy

It was supposed to be a bit of harmless fun, but a beer drinking festival in Spain had a sickening finale on Wednesday after the winner downed one glass too many.

Going Pro / Re: Going Pro Cheap - NJ Farm Brewery Licensing and Fees

I got in touch with my local zoning office and since I'm zoned rural and on a main road I might be able to get a variance to run a limited brewery on site. He told me to write up a description of intended use (and gave me a hint that if I add provisions for growing hops/grain it would help with approval).

We'll see how it goes...

Beer Recipes / Re: Golden Ale Recipe
« on: July 19, 2013, 11:30:49 AM »
Don't have a recipe in front of me but golden ale is pretty easy. 2 row base (you can blend in some maris otter if you like), little 20L crystal, maybe a bit of Munich or Vienna, blend it all on your recipe formulator till you get the color you want, bitterness around 18-24 BUs and a noble type aroma hop. American Ale yeast or German Ale yeast. Ferment on the cooler side. Bingo!

This actually sounds pretty tasty!

Why should farmers get more lenient "brewery" regulations that the rest of the people living in NJ?

Because farm wineries get the privilege already?

Plus, with the way the bill was worded, you could only sell to consumers so you couldn't compete with plenary/restricted/limited breweries in regards to keg sales at bars. So it would be package sales for off-site only except for samples.
