    The full song is also quite good, but TL;DR for most.

    DIPA Homebrew , not an aggressive pour at all the pound of cara I put in really helped out on the head and head retention , very grapefruity smell with a dry finish and neutral yeast profile , not to brag on myself but a really great beer , about time I made one , lol

    I have a ghetto 5 gallon brew system that I have about 150.00 in and brew on my carport and ferment in a water bath in a back closet. I am a cheapass so I usually make a lot of my own stuff. good luck in your home brewing and dont get discouraged if you make a bad brew , give to your fake friends and tell them how good it is , they will be afraid to tell you it sucks because they are not your real friends anyhow , haha

    I am sorry that this happened and sorry for this upcoming reference, but I had also worked for somebody that did not like me playing guitar outside during work even though I had cleaned up the place and had little business. He was not mad that I was playing while being paid but rather because he felt no one would appreciate it since this was Northern Virginia. He was from Rome, and that is odd since Romans play in the street all the time creating an atmosphere. I was puzzled that this happened..

    Made a trip to the ABC store today and bought some Elijah Craig 12, Eagle Reserve Single Barrel, and some Creme De Cassis to mix with sparkling wine. That will be the focus of tonight but there's always time for one of these first...

    Homebrew Hefeweizen! This is the clearest beer yet and yet it should be the cloudiest. Weird! Tastes great though.

    Overall, not a bad beer. This is my first time trying the style, and it's interesting. I doubt I'll go back to it though, since there are so many IPA's that I'd like to try.
