Kegging and Bottling / Newfangled bottle necks
« on: June 08, 2011, 08:26:11 PM »
Has anyone tried their hand capper on the newer style bottles?
That is...There are a lot of new bottles out there that have a very short collar, beneath the lip...
It seems to me that many hand-held cappers may run into some trouble sealing them.

To make a comparison, around at some of the bottles your local liquor store has & compar the necks.
Some look like this:

Others, like this:

The Pub / Clone Brew Names
« on: March 31, 2011, 09:18:35 PM »
So, I just heard that Larry Bell has sent a cease & desist letter to Northern Brewer, requesting that they change the name of their Two Hearted Ale clone recipe from "Three Hearted" to something else.
While I realize that trademarks are serious business, I wonder what you're supposed to do, when you name a clone recipe.
It seems to me that nearly ever clone brew out there can run into trademark troubles.
What to do?

Beer Recipes / Paulaner Salvator
« on: December 21, 2010, 03:40:57 PM »
OK...This isn't a recipe for Salvator, nor is it a request for one...
I just wasn't sure where this topic actually belongs.

I recently bought a sixer of Salvator (yummmmmm) & decided it had been a few years since I actually read the label.
Looks pretty much like I remember, aside from one small, almost forgetable item.

On the back label, in fairly large, bold lettering...
It states "ALE".

Can anyone explain this?
I had never noticed it, before this particular six-pack.
Has it always said that?
