beer

  1. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    All the beer in the store is flavored pasteurized garbage with funny names. Seems the kids have lost the technique for making honest beer. OK, maybe in the big cities they have honest craft beer. But not in my local. And with kids running it I would not gamble on it. I've come up with a very...

    I know the title reads like a personals ad. But I am back in Houston finally and was looking to meet up with some ps preppers who wanted to get together to train shoot guns ect. I tried to check out a local group/ militia but let's just say they were scary under trained and over equipped and...
  3. Political News and Discussion
    This has been in the news lately. (I first read of it in the "New York Times".) In a nutshell, now that banks are more losely regulated, they're buying up warehouses, and metals, and playing around so as to make prices higher. The mischievious miscreants have forklift operators moving tons of...

    Interesting article for those hoping to have a cold one when SHTF. For example: The Color of the Bottle Affects Beer’s Shelf Life - Clear and green bottles allow in significantly more UV light than brown ones. This leads to skunking. So if you were to store green or clear bottles in complete...
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Shtf situation or not I have included lots of very nice cigars, liquor, cigarettes, and was thinking about adding some beer and wine. I know that during a crisis situation your mind must be focused on survival and taking care of the ones you love, and you have to take care of your body in...

  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'd like to start getting geared-up with the basics for making home-brewed hooch with the least amount of fuss. I know next to nothing about distilling/fermenting alcohol, just the basics. Having the necessary equipment on hand and knowing how to use it beforehand is important to me. What in...
  8. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Has anyone made beer using fire instead of a modern heating element to boil the wort? I know that's how was beer made for centuries, but would like to know if anyone has tried it and if it imparts a smoky flavor (which could be good). I guess the next step would be having a "family stick" that...

    I was thinking today about storing hard liquor, beer, and wine. How long does hard liquor, beer, and wine last? What hard liquor, beer, and wine do you store for SHTF situation? How do you store it? What can you use it for if SHTF? Trading? Cooking? etc... What are your thoughts on this?

    Should things go south. I've been looking at this,among others,if for no other reason than to save money,have something that actually tastes good and to be able to say I did it myself.:thumb: http://www.beermachine.com/
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I am looking for some How-To's or further reading on how to make alcohol once we get to TEOTWAWKI. I am mostly interested in spirits or wines because I think beer generally has more ingredients (but I would like to see any good ideas on brewing beer after TSHTF). I think that alcohol will be a...

    So ... the SHTF and you want a cold beer. What do you do? You do not have a gas-powered generator or propane-powered refrigerator by the way. And solar-power devices won't count either. And no, you can't go steal beer from someone with power. I'm looking for innovative and creative...

    Great video about a pretty popular hiking kitchen. Light weight, easy to make, and cheap. Great project for Scouts as well as anyone worried about weight.

    My friend, Bruce, and myself will be starting our first homebrew in a few weeks. I'm not going to fill up these boards with the write-up about it but does anyone else here homebrew? Have a friend that does? Just wanting to hear some opinions of it, I suppose. How's that for a trade-item...
