I grabbed this from their website after they announced its retirement.

I was disappointed when they stopped producing cinder cone red ale.  I loved that stuff. Thanks Denny for posting this. I miss the PNW.  My time there was way too short.
I have a pdf with their Cinder Cone info on my home computer. I'll post that when I get a chance.

Nice to see so many of you have taken in shelter animals. Here are our two shelter girls that are just over a year old. They are the friendliest cats I've ever known and race to the door whenever anyone comes by.

Fuggles. The mellower girl, who likes to sit on laps. And kitchen counters.

Her super high energy sister Molly. She'll sit on my lap when she's tired, which happens about twice a day.

Here's a rye stout  that I was happy with. You could swap out the Fuggles or up the bittering charge for some more bite. I was using up leftovers, which is why the crystal is all over the place. And I realize I didn't output my gravities when I exported from Beersmith. >:(  I think it was around 1056 OG, 1016 FG

They're getting closer and closer to Illinois  ;D I really miss them from my time in the PNW.

I'm surprised Black Butte is only chocolate wheat and crystal. That has such a robust flavor. Pity they left out IBUs.

I've got one IPA to bottle and another to rack or maybe just dry hop in the primary. I can't decide if I want to harvest any of the slurry.

So who's going to tell him that the Feds will make him wear pants if he wants to sell his beer?

Is there really an investor or are you trying to be able to charge for growler fills  ;D

Your public library probably has some good resources for general research. You should also check out SCORE:
Free advice from successful entrepreneurs.

Good luck!

It took me a minute to realize that the bird feeder isn't on top of your cooler.

I saw this garden sculpture yesterday. I don't think the wife would go for it, but I thought it was pretty funny.

Revolution Brewing in Chicago. I got to finally check them out a couple weeks ago. Great beer and food. If you want to travel out to the burbs of Chicago, check out Two Brothers Brewing. I might be able to meet up with you for a couple beers when you're in town, just let me know when.

Ah yeah I forgot about those guys! How is Piece these days? When I went there a few times back when I lived in Chicago I loved it.
Haven't been to Piece in a while, but I'm sure they're still cranking out great beers and pizza. You should make your way there as well.

I skip Piece and go to Revolution. It's only a couple more stops on the Blue Line and I love the place. Also a lower hipster quotient than Piece, which makes me feel old when I walk in. You must have the bacon popcorn at Revolution.

Brewing my tweaked Ranger inspired IPA tomorrow. Probably scrubbing bottles, too. Which is still better than scraping and painting the basement.

In DC there's RFD, ChurchKey, and the other usual suspects you'll find highly rated on Beer Advocate... they have good beer, but you're going to pay for it.
Churchkey is well worth a visit, but get there early. I love that they have 4oz pours and 4-5 cask ales. I went there for lunch when I was in DC for a conference and was able to try 3 beers and still function during my afternoon meetings  ;D

Right on Jake! On a related note, virtually every time I look at who's online on this board, the guests outnumber members! C'mon peeps, quit treating nickels like manhole covers and join up!  8)
I'm fairly sure that refers to registered users of the forum online versus unregistered users, not AHA member status.

I brewed the recipe johnf linked and it came out really nice. It had been ages since I'd had the original so I can't say how good a clone it is, but I really enjoyed it. The peat is pretty subtle.
