    Two 2 litre growlers of our Imperial Russian Stout http://www.stonebrew.com/irs/

    more 30 packs of bud light then you can shake a stick at
    and liquor..

    I plan on having almost 50 people at my pad...should I be nervous? NAAAH!! I'll be too drunk.
    Sounds like quite a party

    I sadly don't have any homebrew ready for tomorrow night, but I will be brewing tomorrow, a coffee porter I have been thinking about making for awhile. Ordered some special espresso beans for the finishing touch which I will cold brew and add before kegging.

    Ha, Mikes last two posts in this thread were on 1/4/11 and 4/1/11. Yes, I am amused by the small things.

    I think I'm going to have to make that happen one of these days. Besides, SD is one of my favorites places

    Boone, don't move to Alaska:

    Alaska Villages Outlaw Yeast, Sugar

    In most communities, you can buy yeast and sugar at the grocery store. But not in Alaska, says the Anchorage Daily News, where some villages have outlawed both alcohol and supplies to brew it at home. Conceived as a way to regulate alcoholism, a sheriff recently arrested a man after finding yeast in his home. The man says he was simply going to bake some bread. The Daily News says police are so used to the bread answer that they have a special line of questioning for those who claim to be bakers: “We’ll ask the questions, ‘How much yeast does it take to bake a loaf of bread,’ and you’ll get an answer like, ‘Oh, a cup’....I mean, it takes like a tablespoon, so that makes no sense.”

    Hell, even I would smoke a stogie for a taste or two of a 'Silva Stout'

    Took a couple of days off here at the end of July, partly for brewing. Today I am doing a batch of my White Nipple Wit with a single decoction mash.

    I don't know, but it reminds me of one of the top-10 movie quotes of all time from "Ten Things I Hate About You:"

    "What is it with this chick, does she have beer-flavored nipples?"

    Mike, I use 3 different grains (Great Western 2 Row, Maris Otter 2 Row and unmalted Wheat). It is lightly hopped with Tettnang and spiced just a bit with Coriander and Bitter Orange Peel. I ferment it with Wyest Labs 3463 Forbidden Fruit.

    It is in the same family with Blue Moon and Shocktop if you are trying to place a commercial equivalent (although I like mine better).

    Well, judging from how fast the first batch went missing, people think it pretty damn good (although I might not be the most objective guy in the world). I premiered it back in late April and I am down to 11 bottles out of over 2 full cases. I know that doesn't sound like a lot but I have 6 different styles in the house right now and always some of everything with me to every get together. I bring home some each of the other 5 but almost never bring back a Whitel Nipple. I had only planned to brew it once this year.

    Got to try Stone's Sublimely Self-Righteous the other night for the first time. Pretty good stuff.

    It's been 6 months or more since I've made beer.

    What the hell is wrong with me? (Nevermind: that's a topic for another time, believe me)

    Tomorrow, I change that.

    I'm brewing a lager. Not just any lager - Oktoberfest. I'll do an all-grain brew session, then transfer my filled carboy into a 55 degree fridge. After a transfer to a secondary carboy in a couple weeks, it'll go back into the fridge until, well, at least October. Probably leave it for an extra month so technically it'll be 'November' or 'December-fest' With lagers, the key is 'patience'. The longer it stays in cold storage the more amazing the taste.

    Yum.

    I have a batch of my White Nipple Wit nearly ready to go in the bottles here.

    I can tell you why you haven't brewed lately Boone...too damn hot! I nearly died brewing the wit a couple weeks ago.
