The Pub / Re: Exploding keg kills Redhook Brewery worker

I have a sample keykeg in my "office", the bottle is just like a 2 L soda bottle with a bag in it. The down side I see is the cost of the coupler, twice the cost of a regular coupler that the bars already have. Hard to buy these couplers to give to bars that have your product on tap. You only need air dispense to but until everyone else is using them they are not viaable as a small brewery. Not to say we will not use them. There are other 25 dollar kegs out there that can be used a couple times. That is for a different forum section. Not here.

It tore my heart out to see his mom on TV, it brought back terrible memories from ten years back and that "mom" was my wife. Prayers for his family.

I'm not too keen on turning my hobby into something that becomes a drudge to perform. ???

I also work for a fairly large corp. While there are definite advantages to this the main suck about the job is my fellow employees. I studied and trained for many years to do what I love to do. It's the shocking behavior demonstrated by my "colleagues" that'll drive me from the industry and not the repetitive nature of my work.

I might end up sweeping floors in a brewery before long   ;)

If you really love brewing it would not be drudgery. Part of the fun of this venture (for me anyway) is the challenge of growing a business and marketing it. Also, getting to meet people is awesome. But the main joy for me is definitely still brewing and getting to experiment with different ideas.

Also, whomever said I needed together a new hobby I think really hit it on the head. I need something to do at home that isn't brewing. Still trying to figure out just exactly what that is going to be.

How about a hobby farm Major?
Euge I did not say I would give you that job!

Gmac, don't be embarrassed. I'll be at the premier of all of them. I was in line for six hours to see the first one.  :-\

   And Boulder, grandkids!? Dude, I'm 34 and don't even have kids!

Well your kids would be my grand kids.

On second thought that would not be good.

Just walk far far away, and don't look back at that drunk crazy man.

Zucchini has always been feast or famine in my gardens.  I've planted 6 hills and harvested no fruit and I've planted one hill and had more than I could give away and everything in between the 2 extremes.  They are also elusive little devils, you can swear you've looked under every leaf, everyday and still find one two feet long and 6 inches in diameter.   :o

 If you have no polinators, go with a zucc that doesn't need a polinator the most popular one I know is called Perfect Pick, you get them with out polination. Cheaper than getting bees. Trust me about this. ;)

Me and my daughter went to watch the movie today at 4:45 after she got out of school.  We went to studio movie grill which has a nice setup, they have nice chairs and tables and a menu and you just push a button for your waiter to come around.  4 beers and 2 popcorns later we were done with the movie.  (man I had to pee after 2.5 hours!).

The movie was good, we both liked it.  The best part was we had the entire theater to ourselves, not a single person was there except us so not only did we get kick ass seats in the middle up close, we could talk about the movie and the changes from the book whenever we wanted. 

She's gonna be sick tomorrow for school, (aka playing hooky), and were both headed to the country to go hunt hogs this weekend.  Hope to leave at 10:30-11am ish.  She is taking a 410 but what she doesn't know is that I am going to officially give it to her over the weekend.
Very nice, that is great you get to do that with your daughter, I hope most homebrewers that have young kids follow your lead!

Weaze time for grand kids. just saying the same for Roffy and Beersk (beer queer ;) )

Well Joe Sr. if you vacation north stop by out tap house and we will be glad to cheat you out of your dollars! ;) I can see how we can over pay for our beers, we are stuck paying for the over head. Did you know that if you want to pour New Glarus's top line beers like Raspberry tart or Belgian Red you have to have tap line cleaning class and that ain't cheap.

No excuses all our beers will be under $4 but our glass may vary from a 8 oz or 16 oz.

That is why our tap house will be serving pints less than 4, we feel at 4 you cross the line. If costs dictate maybe we will resize the glassware.

I have been working on this for 6 months, I have come up with some things that work for brewing light beer with the high carbonate water. I would love to have a ro system but the water they waste I think it will not work for us on city water. Even though I could get it at cost saving at least 2k. Not doing the slaked lime thing.
