The Pub / Re: Martini's

I'm right behind him.. Vodka Martini's barely qualify as any such thing - tito's not withstanding.

I'm still a Plymouth and Hendricks man.

NDA = Non-Disclosure Agreement - basically, it's a piece of paper they may have you sign that says "I can't tell anyone the things I learned from them under some sort of penalty".

E.g. - keep a secret or we'll hit you for some punishment.

Thanks for the good words about the book, guys. I had fun writing it (even though I never slept while doing it)  I'm working with the BP trying to find a slot for a new book, but they're super busy cause Kristi keeps roping in some excellent ideas.

So what's the story, morning glories?

I've run out of beer that isn't wild/old/strong, so time to brew I guess.

And with long hair and a backwards baseball cap he might look like silent bob too.

Once upon a time a long time ago, I met Kevin Smith (aka Silent Bob) at a comic book signing. I did have longer hair. He did a double take when he looked up. :)

FYI - Just so folks don't get into conspiracy theory land - "charliepapazian" is indeed the homebrewing world's very own Charlie Papazian.

Nice book Drew!

Thanks Dean! Glad the book made it to you intact and that content seems to have gotten better in the shipping! :)

From talking with retailers - it's the little things that make up the bulk of your income, but it's the equipment that puts you over the top, hence the reason retailers always need new people in the hobby.

Quite possible, just a little less Canadian and a little less trailer park. :)

Absolutely, the Carafa "Special" line of malts (aka German "debittered" huskless chocolate malts) are the only way to roll in this style. (Ok, not true.. you can also use a beer colorant called Sinamar which is basically made from Carafa)

As for Oak, sure why the hell not, although it would be better to use oak cubes than oak chips. Keep a close eye on it thought to avoid possibly overloading things along 3 fronts - hops, oak, and "coffee"

Thanks, I figure I'd tried to talk "Denny" for a bit. :)

Nope, but I've brewing some badass Black IPAs and Black DIPAs for the past few years.
