The problem with reddit is that unless you're sticking to a few really specialized subreddits like the fountain pen one, the whole thing is a hive mind of the worst sort. Perfectly good comments that contribute to the discussion will get downvoted to oblivion if they dare to express an opinion contrary to the masses.

Lando Lincoln: Since the beginning of brewing?

You're thinking of fermentation. That can't be done in one day.


In the beginning of brewing, it took about a week to produce the first mash.  They didn't have their malting process down like we do now and they didn't use heat to their advantage like we do now.  But yes, not counting the malting process, modern brewing takes about 4-6 hrs on average.

I haven't had a CDA yet, so I can't comment on whether I'd like the style or not.


Bourbon is whiskey, but, OK, I get the idea.  So you probably don't like Gueuze either I'm guessing?

CDA is an abomination of beer, and anyone that brews or drinks it should be ashamed.  I'll gladly be knocked down a peg or two on anyone's list by saying that.

Brew on!

Wheaton seems to be the geek messiah around here, but personally I can only listen to him in small doses. I tried listening to the Nerdist podcast where they spoke to Gabe Newell. The sheer amount of immaturity from Chris Hardwick and Wil Wheaton combined into some sort of critical mass of juvenile douchery.
