Making your own beer on the moon from moon water would be even cooler.

But you would have to boil with the lid on to keep it from floating away...and we know what that means.  :'(

You'd have to use an electric kettle, because there's not enough air to support a flame. I'm ready.  ;)

Wonder what the boiling point is on the moon and how it would affect isomerization.

You'd need less energy to brew though, and I don't think low g would affect isomerization.

Lower atomospheric pressure certainly would.

Plus presuming that you're boiling inside a habitable pressurized environment, I wonder how many atmo's you'd be set to.

If you were in sunlight it would boil spontaneously. Set that ProMash boiloff rate to 100%.  :o

They keep the shuttle/ISS at sea level AFAIK.

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I would like to see us return to the moon in my lifetime.

I missed the "first time", and have wondered all these years why we haven't done it since.
I'm not a big conspiracy theorist - no foil on the walls, no foil hat. :) 
Just seems wrong we haven't returned after all these years.

Hey Denny,
I was considering posting a link to an article in Sky and Telescope magazine giving the facts behind the upcoming Dec 21 2012 hoopla.  This may be on the fringe of what is appropriate on this site so I figured that I would check with you or any one of the mods first.  PM me for a link if you are interested.   I will not post it until I get a green light.
Thanks,
Monty

I'm fine with it as long it doesn't turn political or religious!

It shouldn't so I'll post it in a new thread.  If for some reason it turns either way, feel free to lock or delete it.

It's been posted now.  Not raunchy, perhaps a bit dry in a scientific way but I found it informative.

 If my grandpa was still alive he'd say "Big deal, so they found water in the desert in Arizona because that's where they really are"!

 When I was a kid he would blast me for watching Star Trek because it was "poisoning" my mind.

 Of course he was born in 1893...

I just noticed the Google search page is acknowledging the discovery of water on the moon today
