    Oh, and to keep it on topic, this batch was about $2/Litre.  I've recently started buying raw materials in bulk though and should be able to easily get it down closer to $1/Litre.

    And we know you'll do it! The only issue you'll have in the future would be things that cabby wrote about. Your weather will affect your price, similar to produce.

    I mentioned that the prices were higher than what I used to pay. So, unless it was on sale, I didn't bother. Then I found a liquor store where I could get kegs for cheap. Cost is $.46 a brew.

    Only issue was getting the keg up three flights of stairs...

    And, I wonder if I'll tire of the same beer.

    My first really good batch of home brew was ready for testing this week.  I've had a couple of flops, but this time I'm really, really pleased.  I brewed an American IPA, and on first tasting it could stand up alongside some of the best IPAs I've had.

    I've often heard it said that homebrewers could produce beers that rival the best commercial offerings, and I've often been skeptical, but now having pulled it off myself I'm convinced.  The crappy beer kits of the early nineties are a thing of the past.

      If only the g'dog was still around to appreciate that.     :'(    

    I'm sure his golden ears are burning.

    Today I'm sitting here playing around on the computer, having some supper and enjoying a nice glass of Heineken ( & thinking about how lucky I am ). Were I living in the southern part of Alberta near the Town of Cardston getting hold of some Beer would be more difficult. Cardston has had a ban on liquor sales since 1905 and recently voted to continue this ban. The Cardston area is home to a lot of LDS people ( Mormons ) but I myself like to have a liquor store near me.

    --- Good plan AlCzervik ! Despite having lived in Alberta for many years I have never visited the town of Cardston, it doesn't sound all that inviting anyway  lol.

    Stone officially launched retail sales in Alberta this week, and there was a "private" launch party on Monday night at one of our local craft beer bars.  It was a blast, great beer.  Among others, I'm a particular fan of their Black IPA.

    IPA beer has gained tremendous popularity, but I've yet to have one that I like. I don't even bother with them anymore after tasting a number of them throughout the years. Personally, they all taste sweet to me, and I lost my sweet tooth when I was a child.

    I figured I'd start building a tolerance akin to a sailor.

    I'm a fan. Some are a little too resinous and piney for my taste but the really citrusy ones are right up my alley. Had one this weekend that I liked a lot: Dieu du Ciel! Moralité. (A whole lot).

    I like to try different IPAs, there's more variety as the length of wort boiling draws more character from the hops, but I come back to brown ales and pilseners by the end of the night.

    Feel the same way about fruity beers, although I will drink the local special of Blue Moon with orange.
