Yes. Some questions seem simple or silly. I've answered the same questions numerous times. But once upon a time, I had those same questions, and somebody took the time to answer them for me... Probably not the first time they answered them either. It's a great place to pay it forward if you hang out here long enough.

I know a few people that this would be a great baby shower gift.  Most of them would use it too.

My biggest pet peeve is "this has been asked the forum before asking the same question again"  While it is good advice, sometimes the search functions don't provide the results you are looking for.

And it truly hate the "LMGTFY" posts...You go to all the effort to type the search into this website, then post the link on a forum to basically call people lazy.

Bottom line:  Rule #1 of the Brewer's Code - Don't be a dick!

 I don't mind a little good nature razzing.....its what we do sometimes. I did chuckle when i got the LMGTFY- it wasn't meant to be mean in that case.
I know I am a rookie brewer but I now feel really stupid for having to google LMGTFY! Doh!

I had to think about it for awhile to remember what it stood for.  I've done that to someone once and it wasn't on this forum.  He was full time, paid, computer geek just like me and kept asking questions that would all be answered if he just bothered to do a search himself.  Everyone else on the thread thought it was hilarious.  Him, not so much.   :-\

does anyone see Fat Head's distributed in their area? The Head Hunter IPA is pretty dang good.

Very good stuff. I had Hop JuJu the other day. Also very good. Sunshine daydream session IPA also good. Trail Head also good... They do hoppy beers very well lol. Shakedown stout is a very nice American stout.

Absolutely take the high road. What I am saying is make the responsible agency cancel the homebrew comp via some sort of specific written documentation.  That plays much better in the media than a bunch of homebrewers deciding not to have it.  Besides do they "really" respect the law when it clearly says only "native grown products" can be used.   That seems pretty cut and dry...only Idaho hops, barley, yeast and water can be used. Pretty ridiculous

I just don't see the point in going that far until he tries a more conventional route.  You catch more flies with honey, ya know...
I wouldn't be combative about it, but as a regulatory agency it's their job to tell people if what they want to do complies with law. It basically IS the conventional route.

I'm leaving for Vegas on Friday! Any local breweries I should check out? Or any beers to seek out that I can't get in the DFW Metroplex? Also open to general activity suggestions as well. Thanks.

I try to be respectful when disagreeing, clear what I mean when I'm teasing a poster in a friendly way, and when someone says something I don't like say something but give them the benefit of the doubt that they just had a bad day. My success rate at doing this is good but not 100%. I find that the regular posters here have been great about owning their crap when they mess up. Just the other day a regular poster got a little testy with an answer and totally got it and fessed up and apologized when called out.

This is my experience.  We can all be dickish at times, but most everyone here will own up to it and apologize.

Drinking an Irish red ale from the Porterhouse Brewing Co. Not really very red, rather amber. Taste is very caramel, rather thin. Not too bad for one glass, but I wouldn't want to have to drink gallons of this.

Ingredients: Pale, Crystal, Wheat and Chocolate Malts; Galena, Nugget and East Kent Golding hops.
