Dude, that's awesome! Are they going to NDA you, or can you share?

I just feel the need to point out that it's 46.21 point-gal/lb. ;)

Did you really just make GI Joe and Dune references in the same episode? I love you guys.

I couldn't find the Zymurgy one, but here's BYO's:

I don't think that recipe would be quite right though. I've brewed one that's all but identical:

I think your best bet as far as culturing the yeast is Oberon.

When someone parks in a fire lane? Absolutely.

Yeah, I think even for just that U-turn you do - it's still Grand Theft Auto.

Oh yeah, no doubt. That's why unless I actually see them park and walk in, I just call the cops.

The Pub / Re: What does “craft beer” mean to you?
« on: July 01, 2010, 01:51:46 PM »
I think a craft beer is any that's been "crafted", by a brewer, to taste. I don't think the size of the brewery, or the style of the beer, has anything to do with it. It's only when marketability or profitability starts to dictate the recipe that it ceases to be a "crafted" product.

So I couldn't choose any of the poll options, because I think a light lager with a high proportion of adjuncts can be a craft beer.

Sometimes when I'm in a bad mood and see someone leave their car running in a fire lane to "run in for just one thing", I'll turn it around so it's pointed in the opposite direction, then discreetly watch as they come out of the store and freak out. I like to think that they never do it again, but that's probably wishful thinking...

Sweet! Any idea when they're opening? I'll be in the area in August/September. Love the site design too.

In my experience bringing beers to parties, there are only two kinds of beer drinkers. The first will say, "oh yeah, that's pretty good," then put it down and go back to their Miller Lite. The second will tie you up answering questions nonstop for half an hour. Point being, I don't think anyone wants a small amount of information on the label. They either don't care what it is, or they want to know everything about it. I'd put the stats on there too; at least ABV, since everyone's going to ask.

We are getting off topic, something I never do. So lets just stop.

You know for it to be "on topic" you'd have to talk about beer, right? ;)

Were the kitchens inspected of all the pie makers? I'm sure there's compliance and sanitation and health certificates that are needed for food production too. It is after all being served to the public. It's a conspiracy.

From what I'm reading, it doesn't seem like health code has anything to do with it. Serving homebrew to the public is illegal under OR state law - serving pie is not.

However, the Liquor Control Act does not apply to the making or keeping of naturally fermented wines and fruit juices or beer in the home, for home consumption and not for sale.
(emphasis mine)

Obviously I hope OR home brewers will lobby for a change in the language, but as it stands I don't see how you can fault them for enforcing the law.

He's actually a well-known actor who decided to change careers by creating an alter ego.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Corn vs. Cane

By weight, the cane sugar would contribute about 5% more gravity, alcohol, CO2, etc. They should both ferment out 100%, so no flavor to speak of. Cane sugar's cheaper.

I realize this thread is taking an abrupt turn, but hey, it's in the pub...

I've had some bad hangovers, but I don't think one's ever gone grammarial. ;)

There are situations in which a split infinitive sounds perfectly fine to me, and others in which it just sounds wrong, and I don't even think there's rhyme or reason to it. I guess I'm just a snooty priss. (Another word for which overly pedantic lexicographers would hang me out to dry!)

"To seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly split infinitives that have never been split before..." ;D
