The brew day is fun and relaxing, the beer is good,

You're doing something right, I'm sure of it.

I prefer the term Plateau. Has a nicer view than a rut.  8)
It's a natural progression.

Couldn't you just put a dip in, and stop spitting while you drink a beer?  Delicious! Name it "RedMan Yum Yums"

Feeling any better pinski?

I was always a Copenhagen guy, but yeah... that's how I know what I'm talking about.

A pub has darts.  Real darts.  Not the plastic crap that you find in bars.

Excellent point(s)!  ;)

I think, I'm gonna barf. ;)


I have to agree, Steve. To each his own though.

Oh totally, and I get it... I get and enjoy notes of Spanish cedar and Pipe tobacco in big, typically wood aged beers.  In that sense, I appreciate "tobacco" in my beer. 

The notion of actually placing any tobacco in my beer though... makes me wanna barf.

Isn't tobacco poisonous?

Yes but the caveat, like most substances, it all about dosage.

When I talk to folks that have or are planning to open some form of brewery and we come to business models considered, they tend to break down more or less like this; Tasting room (beer production, small room, maybe snacks or food trucks), Pub (beer production & SIMPLE food service), Restaurant (beer production with full service restaurant). To me Pub implies that there is something more than a bowl of peanuts or pretzels yet I don't expect a full menu and exceptional service. My $.02

The Pub / Re: Cool gift from my brother
« on: April 18, 2016, 03:35:31 PM »
Beautiful pieces there Jim. Does  your brother ever do customer sheaths for folks or is it just a hobby? I have a hunting knife that my Grandfather made that I would like to have a custom leather sheath made for.  LMK.
To my knowledge he doesn't do anything for sale. It adds deadlines, and there's just no way to compete price-wise with factory work. So he just does it for fun. He's into cowboy action shooting too, so he also makes belts and holsters, leather Rough Rider trousers, pistol grips, you name it. All meticulously built to authentic specs. He's a real artist. He recently told me he needs a break from that stuff, so hes going to build a clock from scratch.

Awesome, sounds like a true craftsman, on his own terms.  Can't fault that.

Romeo y Juliettas are also nice and my best friend is partial to an Arturo Fuente Hemingway which is also a nice stick.

I really like the RyJ Habanas and the Hemingway "Short Story" is the perfect cigar for me.

So, I'm new to brewing and I'm brewing a KBS clone ...

Well, confidence is a key ingredient when you're starting out. I like your style. You've got some good tips here to point you in the right direction. Good luck!
