      i especially liked the empty jester king bottle in the background....LOL

  2. Tomorrow is the 7th annual kubbapalooza party we throw. I have to clean some tap lines, print some keg labels, and get all the grilling stuff together. Im expecting about 20 people, so 10 teams in the double elimination tournament. Weather looks great, beer is tasting good, hopefully we dont have to fight for a pavilion. Ill keep yall posted

  3. That moment when you realize how long its been since youve heard from @Big Sarge...

  4. The last time I shipped beer, im guessing the hazys exploded. UPS notified me there was damage, discarded the exploded beers, and packaged up the ones that were still good and shipped them back to me. Also included was a report and several tips on how to safely package beer. Its 2019, i dont think they care anymore
  5. You must ship via ups or fed ex. Tell them nothing, they shouldn’t even ask. package at home. Ship to a business if possible. Youll save money that way wrap the bottles well in bubble wrap and then stick 1-2 in gallon ziplocks, whatever will fit line the whole box with a trash bag as leakage insurance tape it up real well. Especially the bottom avoid shipping yeasty beer in the summer
  6. I dont do things by the book, i do what works for me. Its pretty easy for me to just wash a few mason jars and sanitize them to save yeast. Ive never had any negative effects from mishandled yeast. Keep in mind, im usually ducking in and out in every brewing process. So anything that can go wrong usually does. Yes, reusing yeast saves money. This is true. This is a good thing. However, certain strains dont really show their best characteristics until the third generation. Also, if youre anti northern brewer like i am, i harvest yeast just so i only have to order my yeast once a year instead of 12 times a year. Sticking it to the man
  7. If thats yeast and not proteins and hops then hell yeah it is!!! Even if there is some proteins in there, im sure theres enough yeast for 2.5 gallons.
  8. Heres the extract beer i brewed last night. There is hip hop involved. Be warned

     

    Split Batch Hoppy Pale (E)

     

  9. Pulled 7,000 weeds just now. I avoided all the maple tree sprouts. Maybe ill save them and sell for $10 a piece in fall. Little side action...
  10. Making this beer this weekend. Sub extract for 4lbs wheat and 4lbs pilsner. Also sub hallertau for liberty. The LHBS was out. Never used this yeast before, i have always used omegas hefe yeast in the past.

  12. Man, I wish. Some craft beers let me down but some I know ill never be able to recreate. I also think when i drink my beer vs craft beer, im drinking to a different standard. So its hard to compare the two. I like what i make but i know the ingredients i like. Seems like an unfair advantage
  13. Cut back the shoots twice and then let the stronger ones grow. This is where theyre at after a lot of rain lately
  14. Disagree, what are we talking about?
