    the taste, smell appearance,and ABV are right on every time.

    my brews are nice. you know those good beers that leave such a thick head it's like a big cotton ball?
    and when you pour them the carbonation lasts like champagne with the fine little bubbles?


    i brew better stuff than i buy and i buy good stuff

    fairly easy. but is is complicated. it takes practice.if you can make pasta, you should be able to make beer
    spend like $200 to get started and your good to go. then all you need is hops, grain, priming sugar, and sanitizer for the next batch.

    that should make about 5 gallons or like 24 22oz bottles
    ill help you out.

    i brew outside in a 7 gallon turkey fryer with a propane tank. boil overs can be a $#@!. i have books and recipes but a lot of the basic info comes from the net.

    Having an Anchor Porter right now.

    Just back from BJ's and was in the mood for a nice dark beer. Unfortunately, the choices at 12 AM at your local gas station aren't too great. Not to mention if you are in the mood for a dark beer. This is ok, better than I would have expected, B- if I were to grade it. Also, not really a fan of drinking bottled beers any longer, prefer tap.

    have you ever tried Yeti porter?
    Have not tried Yeti but I have seen it at the gas station actually. Maybe this is just a great gas station? They also have a large wine rack (junk, but higher end junk) as well as about a half dozen different champagnes in the cooler, no joke. If I need alcohol after hours it is the spot.

    you can. just buy a $60-$70 start up kit.

    i have something like this

    http://brewgadgets.com/beerequipkits.htm

    http://morebeer.com/view_product/159...231_-_Standard



    basically two 6.5 gallon food grade buckets with lids, an airlock, racking cane with siphon hose, hydrometer, brew paddle, and the caps and bottles.

    then a recipe is needed. you do either malt extracts with some grain or all grain. you need hops ( fresh or pellets ), yeast, priming sugar and sanitizer.


    its not a big deal

    i search online. its easy.

    also ask for help on beeradvocate/groups/homebewing

    i buy a start up kit and improvise with more ingredients amd adding them at different stages in the process.

    mostly dry hopping and using more grains in the brew.
    i continually hop the brew at different stages in the boil and add some more a couple days after its in fermentation.

    i like to play around

    i drink it almost every day.

    its so well balanced it goes great with anything. i love it.

    ( it's not FES it's ES. you can get it anywhere. )

    fes is better but I never had a chance to try it.

    Guinness is so good for you. I love this way more than the stout

    I saw a new beer from Sierra Nevada called "Tumbler" and though about buying it. I ultimately put the 6 pack back as I had (have) work to do tonight but can't wait to try it.

    Had some awesome beers tonight. Little difficujlt to post with the room spinning:

    - Green Flash Double Stout - delicious.

    - Port High Tide - Nicely integrated.

    - Port Shark Attack - Hoppy, WAY HOPPY.

    - Ballast Black Marlin Porter - Watery, but not bad, a nice porter, nicer than the brewery porter IMO.

    - Avery Joe's Pilsner - Wow, a NICE, and I mean NICE, pilsner.

    - Lady Face Picture City Porter - Meh

    - BJ's Tatonka Stout - First time this beer has blown me away, wow experience.
