nealw6971Well, I found out from my mom that I have a wee bit of Irish blood coursing through my veins. Add this to my German and Scottish roots and my Cherokee heritage and I ask, is it any wonder why I love good beer and whiskey?

For $75 I procured... An entire double fermentation brewing system (with glass carboys), 4 books on brewing (including our Brewer's Bible, The Joy of Brewing), loads of grains, malt, hops, rice hulls, etc (all double bagged, sealed and straight from the freezer), A keg sized wort boiler with spout/valve (this particular brewer would boil his wort on the grill!) and assorted other goodies, (hydrometer, thermometer, bottle caps, bottle capper, etc). I am Wicked Happy! Happy brewing to me! Just wanted to share this with everyone... I do feel bad for the guy, though. The reason he sold his brewing set up is because he couldn't drink beer anymore.
One question. He has an old westinghouse upright freezer that he modified so that he could control the temperature... and he put a valve/spout hook up on it as well, apparently... that fits the keg wort boiler perfectly. He'll ... less

nealw6971Thanks for the well wishes. I'm sitting here... it's 12:30 am so my birthday is over... but I'm still enjoying O'Dell Brewing Co. IPA. Mmmmm... need I say more? Beer is indeed proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy (My apologies to Benjamin Franklin).
Without beer, life would not be so tolerable.

Congrats South Carolina! The State House just approved the so called "Pint Bill" that will allow breweries to sell 48 ounces of beer to a person every 24 hours. No more tiny samples if you're wanting a pint - as long as the Governor signs the bill.

This group is designed to share notes about beer, as well as tasting notes and suggestions and get to know beer lovers from all over the globe. Here's the idea: We have themed tasting. In advance, if possible, we will pick a Style of Beer we're going to taste, then we trade tasting notes. The tasting period will be over two weeks so we get an outpouring of related tasting notes, which will spur deep discussions.... Check the Discussion area for what the tasting will be.
