It was a blow when a case of 16s went from $2 to $2.25. How dare they?
When I was in high school circa 1988 you could get a case of Milwaukee's Best at the local Phar-mor for about $5.50 a case. They had 'em stacked to the ceiling.
A good mead is addictive as hell......... It goes way too fast. I've only made it once and it was sweet.
I like the procrastinator bock recipe.... I make it a couple times a year. Here's a link for it. I buy mine locally but they don't have a web site.
Stay safe !
I also add couple of pounds of maple syrup and 4 or 5 pounds of berrys to the boil. This time it was blueberries. It looks like a sparkly purple sunset, and the taste is hard to describe but it's wonderful.
The neighbor lady promised to perform unnatural acts on my person if I made her a case of it. I'm trying to get Mrs. L to see the offer my way.
If we ever get to gether, we'll crack a bottle.
LOL ...you talkin about me or the neighbor lady ?!?!?.......:o)
Sounds like a sweet deal !
Stay safe !
Man, I moved from MA to Japan for a job. Japanese beer is kinda nasty. They sell Bud here, and I drink it a lot- but it costs me the equiv. of about $15 for a sixer of tall boys! I recently saw a case of 30 Bud bar bottles being sold for the equiv. of $60!!!
I prefer German beer, especially St. Pauly Girl Dark.
I worked for 3 months in Stuttgart back in 2000, and found a local beer, Swabianbrau Das Swartze. Best beer I ever tasted. Black as soot, not bitter, and rich and full bodied. I can't find anything like back here in VA. Drank lots of it when I was in Germany. It was as cheap as Coca-Cola (and a lot more enjoyable).
The Mr.Beer kit is great. And you can make your beer as strong as you want!!
