"JohnDubya" post=389768 said:LM, I pass through bozeman occasionally going back and forth to seattle, any real good pubs/chow kitchens u would suggest? _____ Montana Ale Works by the easternmost downtown Bozeman freeway exit has excellent fare, a bit on the pricey side. Bacchus Pub in the old Baxter Hotel on the corner of Main and Willson (yes, Willson with two "L"s) is cheap, makes good pasties and has a fun, historic atmosphere. It shares a lobby with Ted's Montana Grill, which is another one of our favorite restaurants. The Pour House Pub & Grill on N. Rouse is well-liked and affordable. If you're passing through or near Livingston 20 min east of Bozeman, the beers, atmosphere and friendly folks at Neptune's Brewery make a lunch or dinner stop worthwhile. They claim their food is Thai, but it's mainly frozen Costco veggies stir-fried with various curry sauces. Still a fun place to sample a flight of their beers. (If you want top-notch Thai, Sweet Chili in Downtown Bozeman is my favorite.) The new Bridger Brewing by the college on 11th Ave is in production, but they don't have their Pub/tasting room open yet. 16 miles west of Bozeman, right off the highway in the tiny town of Three Forks is the Sacajaweja Hotel. Fantastic food and selection of local brews and gorgeous ambiance. You won't want to leave. Pricey, but memorable.

LOL ____ I will, if they allow me to use the internet from the Betty Ford Clinic! :cheers: Ahhh! Here's the beauty of being a homebrewer. Alcoholics CAN'T wait 7 weeks for a beer! LOL ____Great rationale! Although I did buy some Deschutes Brewery Summer Ale last night. I felt like I was cheating on my little beginner home pipeline.

She is the Executive Pastry Chef and me her chongo the Assistant Pasty chef. Yes we are together pretty much 24/7 :laugh: :laugh: Hey it has its perks. I only use about a half tank of gas a year in my pick-up ___ So she is the pâtissière and you are the garde manger? Sounds like a delicious brigade de cuisine - I mean relationship!

  7. "macbeer" post=389250 said:Brewing the mb hard cider apple and blueberries one of the new recipes..it's my first cider. How long condition time? Can u the same Lbk I use to brew my beer in? I'm using 1L pet's is it the same at bottling the beer? No reason you can't use the LBK, since sanitizing kills any potential residual yeasts. I made hard cider last fall and batch primed it the same as beer. After 4 wks conditioning, it was quite nice, but even better after 2 months. I used toasted oak chips soaked in 151 rum (to sanitize the chips) in the secondary for two days in a cold crash before bottling and it gave it a great barrel-aged flavor.

Mine is repulsed by brewing activities and leaves the house on brew day. Oh goody, I get to be the Dear Abby of the Borg. Well Jbags, I would recommend positive reinforcement. Start with offering your wife a champagne flute of perfectly chilled Beltian White with a diamond ring in the glass. Then, try gifting her with her very own Mr. Beer kit -- with a spa gift certificate stashed inside the LBK and a hundred dollar bill hidden under the canned LME's plastic cap. I guarantee that Mrs. Jbags will begin to take a keen interest in your brewing activities. That is why this is a very expensive hobby...not brewing but keeping SWMBO satisfied ______You obviously have your priorities straight!

Thanks....not! ____ LOL. Glad I could "help".

Thanks for the welcome. I think I've been bitten by the brew bug...and I like it You go my brewing sister I am liking those brew pictures. We seem to have a genetic preponderance for a beautifully set up pre-brewing kitchen. I just know our beers just have to tastes better. :laugh: :cheers: _______LOL! So true, Brewbird. It's got to look like Martha-Effing-Stewart put her stamp of approval on it or it's just not as much fun. Cheers!

  14. "T8r Salad" post=388964 said:Well, Mrs. Beer: This is a case of Good news & Bad news. I am not sure where all the rookies before me are getting their mis-founded information. Bad news is that you have wasted time and efforts in brewing this 5 gallon batch of give-away brew that you will neither like the taste of or enjoy the fruits of your labor. Good news is that you can ship it to me direct prepaid of course and I shall dispose of it properly for you. Please don't waste any more of your valuable time with this BAD batch of brew and move on to the next LBK size brew. You will thank me in the end but before doing so, expedite the shipment immediately. It will make a better brewer out of you and you will feel no shame in doing this. Sincerely. Master Disposal Services INC of Arid-zona T8r Salad saluds you. _____________________________ I'm sorry, I can't hear you -- I'm hard of beering.

While the genders often differ on the representation of six inches, I maintain that my headspace allowance is in fact that amount. [attachment=14359]DSC_0053.jpg[/attachment]
