    I remember posting that pic on that drunken evening
    I think your Spaten is going to replace the Dog. It's a weird beer. But then I haven't had it this year.

    I would like to sit in a flotation tank filled with beer. Beer float? sounds catchy!

    Guinness with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream….beer float.

    The float tank beer idea is a bit of a stretch. I would watch out for the bubbles…

    YOu would be able to tell the man-made bubbles vs. the natural carbonation. I think it would be the solution to all bodily ills.

    A quiness float while in the beer-float tank? Now THAT'S a winning combination!!!

    I thought as a beer related subject I should include it here instead of Worst Jokes.




    When it's sunny I think, 'beer garden.'

    When it rains I usually go to the pub for a while.

    When it's snowing I like to sit in front of the TV with a case of beers.

    I'm starting to think I have a problem with the weather.

    Man can not live on beer alone. What whiskey is a good tibble? Price is an object as a person can spend a huge amount on some ancient Scotch. What still does the trick without mortgaging the grandkids...?

    I'm through with Scotch. US whiskey/bourbon is where it's at.
    You don't have to get Pappy Van winkle, four roses and Noahs Mill are really good for the money. $40-50 bucks should get you something really good. If you want to go cheaper makers mark isn't too bad.
    But of course with any of these a proper beer should be standing right next to your rocks or shot glass!!!

    A while back I got to meet Booker Noe, James Beam's grandkid at a feast near Portland. Booker's is a very good choice in Bourbon! I'm not too much into Bourbon as most is too sweet for my tastes. I return now and then to a bottle of Bourbon but, it just doesn't do it for me as a Good Scotch. The Famous Grouse ain't half bad or, a peatier touch Teacher's will do. My all time Favorite is Lagavalin but, then that is getting pretty pricey now days. For me, Bourbon is a mixer.



    Funny thing about beer, it makes me sleepy. Scotch whiskey wakes me up as long as I don't drink too much of it.

    Oh yeah, forgot about Bookers. I like that as well. Great for the money.

    I used to really like Lagavulin, but I really can't take smokey tastes anymore. Peaty smoke. Like that speysideness to it though. I started liking Mcallans 18 year, but we all know where those prices went. Really smooth though.
    I'm mostly a beer guy now with an occasional whiskey pairing. All alcohol makes me sleepy. Never heard of scotch perking anyone up! Nice side effect!

    Seems good, but USA are not so close to Italy
    Actually, the american craft beer movement has been really important, only 15-20 years ago, in Italy you can find only commercial beers, mainly lager and pils style, and nothing more. Nowadays, we have dozens of small craft breweries, and homebrewing created a moltitude of hop addicted, incuding me
    One day, I'll start a beer pilgrimage in Belgium.. Rochefort 10, Chimai Bleu, Vestvleteten, Westmalle...

    I love Limoncino! You wouldn't mind sharing the recipe would you?

    Meth = methilic?!
    In the first pic, 10 litres, 2.5 gallons more or less, of Weizenbock, wheat bier, 8.5%ABV, in the others, the two steps to produce "limoncino", or "limoncello", in other regions in Italy; it's a lemon flavored spirit, sometimes we have a small (not always small) glass of it, chilled, after a huge meal.
    Years ago my father received lemons from a friend, who was working on a villa near Portofino, he found a recipe and tried....
    The procedure is very simple and cheap, and the result a lot better than that you could find in supermarkets

    A couple of weeks ago, 10 litres of "english ale" (or "attempted english ale"), now I have to produce something interesting for next spring, but during Christmas and winter I'll enjoy belgian and abbey style ales I brewed during the past winter, and also an imperial stout I saved for this period.

    The main problem is: brewing a good beer! No problem with stout, dark ales and so on, but terrible results with pale beers, I brew from malt extract, so I suppose there's no hope, unless I move to all grain brewing...

    I made some really good good lagers and ambers using the pale and crystal malts that come in a can. However, I progressed and started buying the malted barley directly from some home brewing supply co. It's pretty simple, just throw the barley in a cheese cloth and dunk it in a pot of sub-boiling water and let it "stew" for a bit.
    I started liking my pale beers better than my dark after a while. No sugar or corn starch, no molasses no nothing. You want that sucker to be pure barely malt! And the beauty of an IPA is you get to almost double up on the malt so you extract a ton of flavor, then pound it with hops! I used to dry and wet hop 50/50 to avoid bitterness.

    You can do it! My first batch of pale tasted like vinegar The second one was semi drinkable, then I get it right after that. All grain and NO wheat! IMO five ingredients are all that's needed for a good IPA: pale and crystal malts, Mosaic and citron hops, and yeast. Oh yeah, and some water too

    Here you are:
    you can start with 100 centilitres of alcohol 95%ABV, you also need a lemon, 100 centilitres of water (without chlorine, common bottle water, no sparkling) and 80 grams of white sugar. If needed, wash carefully the lemon, then slice the peel of, carefully cutting away the inner white peel (too bitter), then steep the peel in alcohol for 24 hours at least (up to 3 days of steeping). Prepare a sugar syrup, boiling 100 centilitres of water, turn off the cooker to avoid the sugar getting brown, and adding the sugar, always stirring, until the sugar is dissolved, it'll take a couple of minutes. Mix the sugar syrup and the flavored alcohol, and let rest for a couple of weeks. That's all.
    You can multiply the ingredients to obtain the quantity you want, this time I used 700cl of alcohol, 700 of water, 7 lemons and 560gr of sugar.

    I attended a brewing course, and the teacher told us about the importance of sugars extraction from malt, all seemed pretty difficult to me, and more I don't like lagers, so I'm OK with dark ales of any sort, for now ... Obviously, extrely hopped IPA are a remarkable exception...Click image for larger version.

    I tried also some experiment with dry hopping, but mysteriously, the batch turned into vinegar , now no more dry hopping for some time, I need to perk up

    Thank you very much Gunter for the recipe! I'll give it a go. I will return with a rundown on the results.

    I only bring up lagers to point out the easiness of brewing non-dark beers. I too ONLY drink IPAs when it comes to lighter beers. I typically drink Imperial or double IPAs which are higher in alcohol and this have more malt backbone. I'm into hops big time.
    I'm curious as to how the dry hopping turned your batch to vinegar. Vinegar is usually due to the malt side of the equation and the oxidation impact to it. Maybe the yeast got spoiled when you dropped the hops in the fermentation tank and let too much air get in. I can tell you dry hopping itself should give you no problems. Maybe try it again? I did it pretty much on every batch. It is as simple as dropping the hops in right after you cool the wert into the fermentation tank. takes a couple of seconds more, then you get the yeast in right away and seal.

    I tried 3 or 4 times, and only once the wort turned into beer, I suppose the problem was a bacteria infection of the wort, because I dry hopped with hop plugs, obviously not sanitized. And more, the place where I usually brew (my flat) got a water infiltration which caused mildew to grow on a wall, maybe this was the real cause of the problem.
    Note that I sanitize everything that could touch the wort very carefully, and I never got an infection before.

    oh, maybe it was infected wert. Bad water and hop plugs. I would use fresh hop cones.

    Always used tap water, after a boil to eliminate chlorine (for stout), and boiled bottle water, the problem could have been hop plugs, you can't sanitize them in hydrogen peroxide

    Yeah and the dry hops weren't boiled in the wert along with the wet hops so no chance of sanitizing.

    Turn of the screw after new years'eve, now back to alcohol
    Tasted an "attempted russian imperial stout": added lactose to obtain a different mouthfeel, but it's way too sweet, so it will be used for sweet creams, tiramisu, or something similar, just tried and it went fine, the cook at the local pub will try also... we'll see
    but, following the inspiration from Anthony, I've bottled a low fermentation "rauchbier" and a dry hopped american pale ale, this time no infection, at the end of this month I'll try it
