    So.... forgive me for prying but why do you have to shut down? Theres yeasts and styles that ferment above 65. My saison is at a steady 75 right now. Cant you just make a pale ale and throw some saison yeast in it? If it gets hot, great! If it stays pretty cool, great! Wheats, wits, and pretty much any belgian beer ferments warm. Brewing based on the season is half the fun.

    I might brew a few, and I appreciate your advise on the saison.  There are a lot of things going on in my world right now.  The divorce, helping my landlord rebuild apartments, and a couple of other hobbies.  trying to keep the apartment around 68 will be expensive, and while I have plenty of ice bottles, it becomes a time event trying to keep the kegs chilled.  Also, I haven't had a free weekend in months, due to bottle two kegs on Friday and brew on Saturday.  I'd like to visit some local brewing restaurants and meet the brew meisters, do some studying on brewing techniques, and just enjoy the summer.  Again, I might brew a batch or two to keep the skills up, but I won't keep up the pace that I've been doing over the past fall/winter.  Thanks for the messages, and never think you are prying.  You are just chatting with me at the bar.  Cheers.

    Just down the road from my work.  Clear across town from home though.  It is still like a 3 hour wait on the weekends to get a table.  I am going to wait for it to settle down before I go.  A lot of other breweries to explore here.

    We brewed a 10 gallon recipe with 19 oz of hops and I thought that was freaking insane... My buddy just brewed a double IPA.  I know that had a crap ton of hops too.  Ill have to let you know how much exactly

    That sounds great!  Hoppy was telling me about a 5 gallon recipe with 2x the grain bill & 22oz of hops!  Unfortunately for me, my brewing season is coming to an end due to warm weather.  Whatever is in the pails now is about it until October.  It kinda sucks because I had my eye on an ipa that used exclusively tropical hops from New Zealand.

    I don't think this forum is a good fit for me. The last time I bought any Mr Beer products was in 2010, so I've never used any of the current offerings. And I've also never used the yeast that is being shipped now, so I'm not familiar with its characteristics. 
     
    There are other things here that don't fit, as well. I still lurk, but probably won't post.

    LOL! man my smart phone isn't so smart anymore, it's 6 years old and all the apps are outdated, so now I can't use it to send pics to my laptop, unless I probably use a cloud. i'm not a teckky guy at all. so the turtle porn is on hold after I get the contracts negotiated between parties, and a new phone
