Great discussion.

I have made my share of Czech lagers.

1) Continental ingredients.
2) Decoction or at least step mashing (Sorry Denny).
3) Lager yeast.
4) Proper Pitch, Ferment well.
5) At least 2 weeks on cold storage. Colder better.
6) Package and sell it. Ops. this is homebrew forum. Scrap this step.

Enjoy.

No need to be sorry, Leos.  I've tried your beers and whatever you're doing is the right thing to do.

I don't live that far from Leos and I still haven't tried any of his beers.  Bummer!

I'm going to pass through Eau Claire on Labor Day weekend.  I think a stop is in order!

I wish I was closer so I could be a regular customer.

Wow, Leos -- you've been busy!  Taproom looks great.  Also, I'm not sure when you got that new website, but it's really nice.

Thank you guys.

The most credits goes to my wife. She picked up the color and all the other stuff. All I picked up was four kegs kegerator (direct draught system).

morticaixavier Remember what I said about taproom.

Pawtucket Patriot The website is just themed wordpress CMS. We had it for some time. We can easily update the content by ourselfs. No programing needed.

One more thing. I heard that some of you got some fancy diesel car.
well I just got one of these:


No fancy at all but I can put 48 cases of growlers in there!!
If you see me, honk :)
