Alright, now that you guys have enjoyed the fruits of the labor, do we have any interest in another class?

oh, i don't know... you keep brewing it, and we'll drink it... :lol:

To quote Homer:

Homer: “How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?”

Marge: "That's because you were drunk!"

Homer: "And how"

I am interested in 2 things.

1, possibly, taking a class, depending on how much it cost and how much I have in my wallet (I've always wanted to learn this stuff), and

2, how much would it cost to have you make more of what you made before? It were delicious, and I would drink it muchly. a Lot.

To make more of what I made before runs about $40 for 5 gallons, which is worth about 2 cases (48 12oz bottles) and change. Cost of the class was $15/person (with all funds going to TCMaker) wasn't it, Karin? If the group wanted to pitch in for the kit though, I'd be more than happy to just show up at the space and make the beer and if anyone wanted to stop in, I'd just do an impromptu thing. It would be great to make the recipe again, as there seems to be an efficiency hole somewhere in my process, and the best way to find it is to make the same beer multiple times.

The shelf life of a corny: The keg itself or the beer inside? The keg is as long as it holds pressure. Every so often, you need to replace the rubber components, but the rest is stainless, so quite a long time. The beer inside, if it's kept cold and free from ambient air (needs inert gas like CO2 to prevent oxidization of the beer) it will keep fresh for many months.

FYI - I came in last Thu and did up another batch of the Blonde. It was a nice, low-key session and was fun to talk to George and (I believe) Cam while they worked on a very cool looking rebar trellis project. It is currently fermenting in the back room. I think this time I'm going to try to get the next batch going when I keg off the first so there isn't as much lag between brews.
