    Miller Lite

    Hoppy strikes again, comes out from under his rock every 27 1/2 weeks or so. How the hell are ya?

    Saison de Frais

    See? He even knew the best time to post to increase your odds! Honestly, reading through the thread of guesses made my head hurt. @Bonsai & Brew is a brewing machine, so there are plenty of beers to guess from (even with the hints).

    Saison de Frais

    I'm obviously just catching up on the forum, as this post is about a week old lol. I just wanted to say that I feel like this contest was rigged. Besides, weren't you going to send @Creeps McLane beer anyway? i hope all is well with everyone. I've been busy with work but things are winding down. Graduated another class of Soldiers last week and have been busy moving barracks this week. I'm looking forward to two weeks of leave over the holidays.

    What should I do with this beer?

    NICE!!! That funk is damn sexy!! I can't believe it has been that long already. I'm pretty sure the two of us could put a pretty decent dent in that keg while sitting around talking about beer and life. I don't know that trekking across the Midwest in December or January is a good idea, but I would sure as hell try it!

    Heat + Glass = no bueno

    Cold crashing and bottle carbonating

    I tend to attribute it to magic on most occasions. Definitely magic. How could science be the sole reason beer tastes so majestic?

    Nice job, fellas! Any other forum regulars make the list?

    Bottle conditioning techiques

    My two cents: as I navigate throughout this hobby and talk to people about beer and brewing, I find that some newbies don't know the difference between head retention and carbonation. We know that extract brewing makes head retention wane and add Carapils to boost it. The bubbles in the beer make it a carbonated beverage.

    Build me a recipe

    I like it. A lot. I think they're definitely logical pairings throughout. Question: Why the insistence on pointing out the co-humulone levels? I've obviously heard of it before, but I'm too lazy/busy to look it up. Thanks again @Creeps McLane

    Build me a recipe

    I'm making a pale ale to use up some extraneous hops. I want to bitter with one and split into two for dry hopping. Here's what's available: Azacca: B/A 14% Citrus, pineapple, pine Waimea: B/A 16% Citrus, pine Wakatu: A/B 6.5% Floral, citrus Calypso: B/A 12% Floral, fruity
  12. I don't know...no one wants their Stout to be darker. Just sayin'

    Conditioning/Cider flavor

    Strange indeed. It definitely sucks when a regular falls of the face of the earth like that.

    Conditioning/Cider flavor

    I thought the going rumor is that they got caught up in a beer-shipping sting operation?

    Upcoming Brewing Schedule

    @Creeps McLane, I'm just happy to be along for the ride, brother. If anything, I'd love to see some videos of the process; that's definitely the immersive experience. I promise to one day have my wife make us a couple shirts with the beer name on it. Even if it doesn't make the B.O.B. starting lineup, it'll come with a good backstory. I wish I could be more participative in the endeavor, but work has me in the huckle buck.
