I remember reading a theory ages ago that said we stopped being roving hunter-gatherers and became farmers so we would have a guaranteed, stable crop of barley with which to brew our beer. So beer may have been one of the main factors in the rise of civilization. Interesting theory, if nothing else.

Hey you had to have something to drown out the constant nagging from a cavewife after hitting her over the head with a club fell out of favor.

I got some guys who live out in the sticks who make it, I can get a gallon jug of it for 7 bucks and it is pretty good, they also sell moonshine in mason jars but that's 25 bucks a pop

So how big is your trailer? Are you in the market for a new gun rack for your pickup? :-D

It's actually quite large, it's 28ftX78 foot, but I don't have a pick up. I just mount my gun right by my side mirrors outside the car that way I can still drive and shoot at the same time.

So far so good. We're probably ten days away from being able to drink it, but no problems with the brewing process yet. We had a heat wave come through, but I think we were able to maintain a decent temp, so that should't be an issue. We're actually going to be getting a large freezer and hooking it up to a remote thermostat so we can set the temp at whatever we want, rather than just trying to find the coolest place in the house.
