    I want to see how far a brewer can push his water, malt, hops and yeast instead of reaching for pomegranite or goose berries.

    sorry, I guess I'm crazy
    You're not crazy. Just different strokes for different blokes. I think a lot of brewers try to make pumpkin beer into "pumpkin pie in a bottle" and some are good some not so. A friend of mine brewed a pumpkin beer and it was probably the truest form I've ever tasted. Very different than what you normally get as the spices were all but absent leaving behind a beer with a blunted vegetable quality. At first I didn't know what was up but when I was told it was a pumpkin beer, sure enough, the pumpkin was pronounced. A good beer but different than what you'd expect.

    You know what, it was almost the exact same as it is on draft in Prague. It had an extremely mild skunk to it that the beer in CZ didn't have. Other than that it was awesome. It made me feel like I was back there. Pilsner Urquell may be the original pilsner, but I think Staropramen is way better. It has a nice mild malt flavor and an almost honey like after taste, but it isn't sweet. I definitely recommend it!

    I wish I had a buddy that brewed. Damn.

    I'm seriously thinking of buying a starter kit and trying something. Does it need to be in a temperature controlled area? I'd have to use my garage and the temp fluctuates drastically.

    If you brew in the winter time, and the garage doesn't get too crazy with the swings in temp you might be fine. If you get a small kit you can keep it inside when it's fermenting and just have it in a corner for the necessary time. That's what my buddy did, and he made great beers that way.

    Default Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale

    Word out of Sierra Nevada is that Celebration Ale shipped last week. I haven't seen it in the stores here yet, but I know SLO County blasts through the stuff like water. One of my all-time favorite beers. I wish they made it year round.

    Pilsner Urquell is great for an upset stomach.
