I'd say the mods here gives us a lot of slack ( or rope to hang ourselves with ) with some topics.  Some other forums have a serious iron hand...

I though the thread was going to be about this guy:

The AHA Card...Don't leave home without it!

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Need to downsize my Kegerator. Any Ideas?

Get a new girlfriend??  ;D
I was thinking the same thing.  Asking a homebrew to downsize his kegging setup is like asking him to cut off certain protrusions of his body ( like an arm...get your mind out of the gutter :) )

I have a 7.2 cu ft chest freezer that measures about 2ft deep by 4 ft wide and probably 3.5 ft tall.  I have 4 kegs in it and if I had built a taller collar, could put 2 more on the hump.

Man, I cannot wait for football season. Given the price of a pint at the "sports" bars here (8 euros a pint/$12) you can bet I'm gonna be drinking homebrew.

What are your favorite styles of beer to drink for game watching?

Since the Patriots are my team, anything from Victory Brewing seems appropriate.  :D

The debt is such a huge number it is difficult to understand something that large.

I wonder what kind of brew sculpture I could buy for $14 trillion dollars.

So I told my wife that I had to go to the GABF to sign books, and she said "that's right before our anniversary, and I've always wanted to go to the GABF, so do you want to do that as an anniversary trip?"

I said, "let me get this straight.  you're asking me if I can take you to the GABF for our 25th anniversary?"

Another lucky guy, right here.

I'd tell you she's a keeper, but after 25 years it sounds like you already figured that out.

My local water report was the same, so I sent it off to Ward Labs for analysis.  They were really quick.

What brewer has EVER been held to that standard?

Only Anheuser Busch, which own their own malting facilities I believe.  :P

Looks like Sen. Scott Brown is on the brewer's side.  Political preferences aside, it good to have some high profile coverage of this.  Maybe they will continue with the rule change but put it on hold until something along the lines of legislation for nanobreweries can be debated.

Steve, since it seems like you've done research for your future brewery, was the rule always there but not enforced?  Or is this a new rule, clearly detailed on the license application going forward for new and renewals?  Either way it seems sort of abrupt in their handling.

I do disease research, my PhD is in biochemistry.

Now you've done it...don't be surprise if a bunch of guys come up to you at NHC next year and show you body parts and ask if it's infected.   ;D
