Just make sure the kegerator/keezer is plugged into the generator!!  ;D

You must have piles upon piles of snow by now.  I feel for ya!!

Only if I had a generator and hopefully I won't need one. Wouldn't be a bad idea to own one though.

Where's the best place to order 1450 from?

Yes that's right. I live smack dab right in the middle of the projected path of the next noreaster scheduled to hit tomorrow night. I actually took the day off tomorrow to brew my ESB.

The estimate is 24" for my county.  :o

Looks like I'll be pulling pints and watching the flakes fall on Saturday.  8)

I use new corks on all of my wine bottles. They're fairly inexpensive. I recommend purchasing new corks and sanitizing them. It's an insurance policy of sorts...and peace of mind.  8)

Queen the  British rock band that formed in 1970.

The band originally consisted of lead vocalist Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, bassist John Deacon, and drummer Roger Taylor. Queen have been described as giving the greatest live performance ever, producing the greatest single in history, and being the best British band of all time.

Freddie Mercury, the man with Titanium vocal chords.

Let’s face it. Being a successful brewer is more about being able to sell beer than being able to brew beer with your own hands. Otherwise many more of us would become professional brewers.


Absolutely right on the mark. We all know you already have the brewing skills and knowledge.

I think if you are able to target the competition and beat them to the will win.  ;)

It's talent, and I mean multi faceted talent. It's passion, dedication, self belief, open mindedness, inspired, can-do and will-do attitude, focused, willing to learn, delegation are the top virtues of a successful businessman. It's a business savy individual with deep pockets and a drive that will never stop. It's location, location, location. Finding talented people to work with you is key as well. A visionary of sorts who can align all of these elements together and make it happen. It's the Vinnie Cilurzo's, the Sam Caglione's and the Jim Koch's that should be your target business models for success.

A millionaire starts with with one dollar and it's the magic after that that makes it work for him.

Making great beer is the easy part in my mind. It's all the other aspects of making a business "successful" that are the challenging parts of a viable business.

Good Luck Keith!  8)

Interesting to read the origin of a "celebrity" yeast strain such as this.   ;)

I guess you've made it when you have your own yeast strain, eh?  So Denny, do you get royalties each time it is pitched?   :D

Uh, yeah....that's why I've retired and moved to the Bahamas!  ;)

must be nice... :D

My guess is that it would be tough to grow hops down there.

it really did bring the missing link to my recipe.

How would you describe it's contribution to this beer?

Inquiring minds would like to know.  8)
