If you still bottle your beer, new years day they are every where and free. The champaign bottle is perfect and holds a regular cap. It also holds enough for 2 good pours and whats beer without friends.

Just need to watch what bottles you have. Some are 26mm(standard bottle caps) and some are 29mm. Gotta have different caps and capper for the bigger ones.... IIRC, never actually done it.

I use the champagne bottles a lot for cider and beer. Been surprised a couple of times by the bigger capped bottles. Work great and have to wash less bottles. Friend still works in the bar biz, and brings over plenty.

Love your brewery and thinking of setting one up myself. Need avoid to take fumes and heat out of the house. Right now it sicks to boil off outside with snow and cold.

I just started a chocolate milk stout tonight. This is my first "flavored" beer - any advice?

Got a Weiss beer on tap, a red ale and a Saison on the way. IPA just brewed yesterday. Spring requires mowing the lawn so we'll have to brew a lager next

I'm embarrassed to say that due to work and home life, I haven't brewed in well over a year Still, lots has happened, including a new house, and a new brewery! Again!

The new cask set up is pretty nice. Fortunately, a local brewery is kind enough to fill a pin on occasion so I haven't gone completely dry. Once I get it all set up, I'll post pictures of the New Brewery. I'm not sure what that makes the brewery on page 1 at this point? Should we change the name of the thread to Old Brewery?

What needs to happen to make this thread 5 stars?

If you ever make it out this way, you should make a point to go to Brewers Union in Oakridge. To my knowledge, hes' the only brewer in the US doing all cask beer in a English style pub. He's very particular about his pints, even pours a true 20oz glass. Pretty cool guy.

Moving in a month and deliberating on a brew stand. New house has a NG stub on the patio, on the fence between my original plan (electric) and a natural gas Brewtus style setup.

Haven't brewed since October, it's killin me!

I haven't brewed in almost 5 years. I brewed all grain at the time. The brewery is basically ready to go in the basement now, after having lived here for 4.5 years, and 'working on it' for almost a year.

I used to use Promash. I have a bunch of recipes on the old computer that was in the brewery at the old house, but even back then it was woefully out of date. A check of the promash website shows it still isn't updated so.....what's a good one? Preferably something that people upload recipes for.

I think for the inaugural batch I am just going to purchase a kit instead of using one of my clonebrew books. It all seems a bit overwhelming and like preparing to brew for the very first time again
