Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Is anyone here brewing at home?

I saw today that the White House released their recipes, "Ale to the Chief" - Honey Ale and Honey Porter.

I suppose they won't have much use for the house brewery if Romney get's in... If I'm correct Mormon's prohibit alcohol... hmmm, I guess that would not bode well for the legalizing and paying down the debt dream either, so much for the mary jane tax and the fiscal cliff....

I was surprised by the 1 pound of honey in those recipes, it seems like a lot?

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
I don't home brew (though I wouldn't mind trying it some day), but my favs are stouts. There is a micro brewery in Colorado that makes the best ever stout, too bad it's a drive to get there from where I live . My 2nd fav beer is also a stout but it's made by the alaskan brewing company (Alaskan Brewing Company - Stout).

I used to brew beer until the yeast (apparently) started to get to me. Now I make wine, initially from grapes with a group of under the guidance of an elderly Italian ex-priest, who would take away the pressings and return some weeks later with a bottle of grappa--he never disclosed how the grappa was produced Since he retired from the scene now from kits at home, just not the same without the camaraderie and the debris (grape mold & corpses of drunken wasps) that were part of his recipe

Sept. 26 (Bloomberg) -- A lot of people talk about making their own craft beer. But how would you go about doing it? Businessweek's Sam Grobart pays a visit to New York City's Birreria to talk to Sam Calagione, the co-founder of Dogfish Head Brewery.

I like a broad range of beers, but my absolute favorite are sour beers. Generally I really don't like sour flavors at all, but for whatever reason I find these very addictive. There are a few breweries in the U.S. making sours, but they are hard to come by. A special bacteria makes them sour.

If you come across a Gueuze (Belgian Sour, pronounced Gooze) in your beer/wine shop you might give it a go. Some are more sour than others, the more sour the better I think. They fall into the lambic category but they are nothing like the fruit flavored lambics. St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition was very nice. Cantillon is consider one of the best.

Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.

I've been trying to add some depth to my beer drinking so I started to pick out some of the highest rated beers on
BeerPal.com: Top Beers

I've found this one to be my favorite for taste, it's almost like a meal in a bottle.

I visit friends in Perth from time to time. They have micro breweries there that operate on a sort of rental basis.

You rent the equipment & make your own beer in them.

They have a menu of different beers and sell the ingredients for each. You are then responsible for making them but they have brewmasters around to keep you out of trouble.

On completion, you can take your own bottles or buy theirs and there you then have a houseful of beer. It's a very cool thing, the beer you make yourself is a very personal thing. It's good beer too.

Plus you can legitimately tell your wife that you are going out to see your beer 2 or 3 times a week. Marvelous.
