In my state it is completely legal for a parent to give a minor alcohol.
Legal in Wisconsin to share alcoholic drink with your child at home or in the restaurant/bar as long as it does not violate house rules of establishment.

Now think about the communion wine.
Is that legal?
Minor are been serve alcohol in churches not by their parents.

FTR I bought a 12X12 WiC for around 4K. That's pricey, sure. But so's a Truck. Of course I can't drive my WiC.
You got yourself a great deal.
Good for you.

Brewing Science Institute does NOT refer to 830 and 2124 as a yeast of the same origin.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Lagering temps.....

I am only a few feet ahead of you, but immensely enjoyed reading this:

http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Homebrewing-Third-Harperresource-Book/dp/0060531053

I think this is still a great book for a brand new homebrewer.  Some of the other books out there like How to Brew or Designing Great Beers can be a bit intimidating if you're just getting started.  Charlie's book may be a bit dated on some of the technical information but is an enjoyable read and gets you the gist of what you're supposed to be doing.
This was a book I started with.
I look at how to brew as a "reference" book.

Unless you could find it for dirt cheap you could probably build a walk-in cooler.
Walking coolers are expensive thou.
And then how would you control temp on each fermenter?

All Grain Brewing / Re: Smoked beer help please?

I made Rauch bier with 100% rauch malt from weirmann.
It had a nice smkiness to it.
I also have to say that both beers were not the same eventhou I used the same recipe.
I suspect that freshness if rauch malt had something to do with it.
Good luck.

Awesome - Best of luck.

Since collaboration brews seem to be the 'in thing' among pro-brewers, have you & Major considered doing one?
that is a great idea but we live quite apart.
As far as Pro-brewer thing. I am still working on license.
I hope to have it done by the end of the year.
