Yeah, that's pretty nifty. It also manages to have a steampunk aesthetic without looking completely fucking retarded, which is unusual.

Yes, one of the additional options is to have it copper plated, furthers that look all the more.

I thought the copper actually looked worse, but I'd like to see a real photo of it rather than their mockup (it's kind of...too shiny? and the copper clashes with the brass). The machining/polishing marks on the photo of the actual product make it look kind of old and weathered, too -- more like a real brewtank.

Here's a craft brewery that's open-source. All their recipes and processes are documented here:

Very interesting. Some breweries will hint at what goes into their beer on their website as well, http://www.victorybeer.com/beers/dirtwolf-double-ipa/ but not to the extent that tin whiskers is doing so. And even then they don't give proportions. Nothing that some brewing calculators couldn't come close to i suppose.

Also on a related note, i know what tin whiskers are in the computing world, but does anyone remember a cartoon from the 80s that had a bad guy by the name of tin whiskers? Sort of a tin man-ish looking fellow. I've tried searching it but have had no luck thus far.

Well I've made a new years resolution that I think I can keep, to brew at least one beer a month for the whole year. Thanks to my Secret Santa, I've already got January in the bag with my Golden Strong Tremens clone. But now I've got to prep for February. I'm looking to for suggestions, or help in selecting what to brew next. I've narrowed it down to a few styles that are traditionally brewed in February:

Barley Wine
Porter
Red Ale
*Helles/Dunkle
*Saison
*Marzen
*Pilsner

*denotes a lager, a style that I've yet to brew successfully. But then again, I've never had a dedicated beer fridge before either...

Anyway, thoughts on what to make next?
Vote on the poll!

Well, although I couldn't be there physically, I was there in spirit. Heard you had a lot of fun and I'm sorry I missed it...

I am wondering however, what everyone though of the Golden Strong and Irish Red/brown brews. Don't hold back.

Be forewarned! Stay away from any beer that is of the 'Goze' style, it is sour salty horse piss. I was sold a case at Southside brew thru. Utter garbage and it was Anderson Valley no less! I'm fairly certain its chief reason for existing is to root out hipsters that will like terrible things ironically. So now I have 23 cans of this to do something with...
