I've got a very weak and too tart berry beer in primary/secondary. I'd like to avoid tossing it, but as it stands, this stuff is not drinkable. Can you help me fix it? [more inside]

Homebrewing brother brainstorming for a series of Classically-inspired beers. One such thought - 12 Labors of Hercules. Trying to pin down geographically helps - lots of apples, oranges, dates, different kinds of aromatic trees, etc. Milk stouts for the cattle. Have any of you seen a food/drink play on the 12 Labors before?
I have never made my own beer, but I need to make some in a rather specific circumstance, which is why I'm asking for advice here rather than a homebrew forum. For an art event, we want to have on display in a gallery a quantity of beer-in-progress, with a specific timeline about when we want it “done.” In other words, I want to prepare this beer and then display it basically with an announcement of when we will serve it.

Where in Pennsylvania can I find malt barley seed? A friend and new brewer wants to grow his own barley, but prefers to source it locally and organically. My barley fu fails. [more inside]
So yesterday I brewed a batch of beer and I think I've done a few things wrong. I know it's hard to completely screw up beer, but I wonder if what I've done (or not done) is a problem, and how I can correct if necessary. [more inside]

HomeBrewFilter: I boiled this Belgian Ale Kit last night. Today, there's absolutely no carbonation coming out of the airlock. Nothing. I am concerned that the yeast might have been damaged. Should I worry about it now? Or wait and see a bit longer?
HomeBrewFilter. 7 days after bottling, I tapped one of the minikegs, just to see what it would taste like (I also tasted after the boil, and again at bottling time). I know the beer needs to be in the bottles for at least 2 weeks, preferably 3 or 4. But have I endangered it at all by opening it, tapping it, and putting it under forced CO2? Secondarily, how much is the flavor going to improve over the next 7 days? It's heady as hell, sweet, and actually not very beer-like right now. [more inside]
