General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Legal Question

You'd be better off asking a local lawyer who knows your laws, but in general you'll have to go through licensing and production regulations.  In general, it won't be cheap.  I'd tell them thanks for the nice comments, but unless they want to cover legal fees it isn't worth your while.

Unless it's a special situation, like Big Brew or Learn to Brew Day, none at all.  I wait til everything is done, cleaned up, and put away.  Drinking while brewing increases the likelihood I'll screw something, and the cleanup seems like much more work if I've been drinking.  Not to mention that I usually start by 9 AM and I just don't want to drink beer that early.

Hop candy...

Ever tried them?

I haven't tried the chocolate covered ones, but I have tried the straight kinda chewy hop candy.  Very...interesting.....

He said he has a starter in the fridge with the wort.

Denny, you need to step up and get a temp controlled fermenter. That's to long to go without a lager (Pils in my case).

Boy, do I ever.  I'm trying to find a place for one, but we live in a small place and have pack rat tendencies!

I found the flavors more muddled than complementary.  I really want to like it, but that doesn't help.

That's kinda where I am.  I like it okay, but I don't go out of my way for it.

If they have the Rodenbach at your location, it was really good too.  $15 a bottle, but worth it.  I did not get a case, just 2 bottles.

Haven't seen Rodenbach here.  AFAIAC, it's great to see something besides Ninkasi as the only craft beer there.

I agree with Ron that that's a great combo.  I did one recently with all those and some Falconer's Flight.

I'm pretty sure that the advice and being able to say that you have a loan from SA would be more valuable than the actual cash. 

Nice thought, but I doubt it.

I just found it at our local Costco for $7.99 a bottle.  I bought a case.  But I sure don't get bubblegum from it.

Sure I will.  Several years back, Ommegang held a contest.  You described the perfect beer and they'd brew it.  The winner was Noel Blake, beer geek and writer from Portland.  I can't find his original description now, but it was flowery and beautiful.  The beer was such a hit that instead of a one off, they kept making it.  Ommegang describes it as a blend of a strong malty ale and a true Belgian kriek.

When I kick a keg of any lager, it's a bummer since I have to wait a year to make more.

Walked in to the local Costco the other day and there were cases and cases of Duvel stacked up.  $7.99 for a 750 ml. bottle.  I bought one to make sure it was in good condition (perfect!) and went back yesterday for a case.

I like it.  Do you know the story behind it?
