Derek, I personally don't think all the macro rice lagers are especially magical either. Just me. It's not a symbol of quality, it's info for the buyer to use or ignore. I see it as analagous to the Fair Trade coffee designation. Fair Trade coffee isn't necessarily better, it's just sold by companies that don't engage in unfair, predatory practices.

F**k !!!!!!!! The odds of that opening all 4 taps must be like winning the lottery, but in reverse. Really sorry to hear that, Chris. Better fire up the strike water - can't be out of homebrew all summer!

I can see why it's backfiring. The video was freaking laughable. IMO once you sell your brewery (free country, can't say I wouldn't for a giant pile of money), you lose the right to b**** that others want to differentiate themselves. Shelf and tap space are at stake for the small guys, so the ship has probably sailed on the "we need to all come together against wine and spirits" BS.  ;D

I'm sure all the European breweries who were disguising themselves as "Trappist" wined and b****ed like little sissy boys (and girls) when a label designation was made to delineate one from the other as well.

This may be the best and most worthwhile thing (the logo designation) the BA has ever done. Very proud to be a member. Definitely going to put that logo on my labels.


Totally agree, Keith. And good for you.

This is what I get for always saying to myself, "Why doesn't anyone want to talk about Trappist beer?"

Good Trappist conversation always works 'round here for me.

Looney toons. I'm watching the stooges right now. Can't figure out who is further off center.

Yeah.  Very puzzled at this time. Stooges might get the nod. Maybe.

Gonna brew up a Marzen tomorrow, as the first of the beers for my O-fest party. Helles next week, then pils, then Exportbier/Dort. Maybe a standard bock at some point. Vacation is a good thing!

Killer man!  How long you off for?  What strain are you using for those?  What do you have your KMB (antioxin) levels at? My last lager run I used 40 ppm but was considering dropping that back to 35...


Off until Wednesday, Rob (been off all week)! Loving the 2206 these days. I used .37g/gal of SBT today, but may drop back a tad after this. I get no sulfur in the final product in my beers, but I want to dial back a tad to hit just what I need, and no more. Also, loving the Barke malts as well (nothing new). They're just exceptional. Hard to brew a lager now without them.

There are many ways that traditional bottle conditioning can go wrong.  Not mixing priming sugar properly, bottling before the yeast is truly done, infections in bottles... safety is always required.  Commercial breweries obviously have higher stakes due to the liability issues, not knowing how their beer is treated or stored after it leaves the warehouse, and others, but these aren't unique to spunding.  If I were risk averse, I wouldn't bottle, period.


^^ Exactly.

Using  Fahrenheit doesn't help either. This is really borderline trolling. I may have to report this to the admins.

I know its become my schtick and reputation to call them out, but most of the stuff these two say is so ridiculous. At what point does the AHA take a look at what they post and think about the new brewers they are trying to attract? They take one look at this nonsense and either start out their brewing journey on a misguided path or understand whats going on and think this forum is full of trolls. Are we allowed to simply lie with impunity here?

Be careful if you're accusing someone of lying....that doesn't go over well with the mods.  The whole point you and I are trying to make is that everyone gets to choose how they brew...there is no single right way for everyone.  So new brewers will also pick and choose from the info available to them.  The purpose of the AHA is not to limit access to any information.

even if the information is wrong?


Wrong in your zealous mind, not many brewers' minds here.

If it eliminates some bickering, I am for it.


Yep. The fuse needs to be shorter on pointless BS here. It will be.
