Be patient Jim. You will start noticing the aroma first, but it takes a while (3 months minimum in my experience) before you will detect any real tartness in the beer. Good Luck!

I think we are getting together this week and building the cooler walls, some of the fermenters are done and ready to ship so it's getting real.
Talked to you in Philly at the meet up at Nodding Head. Maybe more times, but the memory is hazy!I know what you mean, Jeff. For me, the combination of alcohol and ever-advancing years plays hell on my memory!
No, you're thinking Smell my Finger by the Sex Pistols
No, pretty sure it was Sniff The Glove by Spinal Tap.
Speaking of which, this is one of the best six-pack carriers I've seen in a while:
Best is best, but Avengard is pretty darn good. Weyermann is solid, too. Dingeman's for Belgians is probably preferred, but not necessary IMHO.
What makes me angry is watching people run up their credit cards and home equity debt, then filing for bankruptcy and getting out of paying any of it back. This leaves responsible people pretty much holding the bag. We pay for it with higher interest rates and tighter lending practices.Pretty much a myth. About ten years ago the lending industry was given the opportunity to rewrite the personal bankruptcy code to the point that it no longer serves the function of providing people who need it a fresh start. This is not good for any of us except lenders because it means lots of people using most of their money to pay back debt instead of participating in the economy. The number one reason people declare bankruptcy is unexpected medical expenses coupled with not being able to work for awhile because of the sickness or injury.

If you're handing out what is essentially free money, then irresponsible idiots will snap it up in a heartbeat.
