General Homebrew Discussion / Superbowl Additions
« on: February 04, 2010, 10:38:21 AM »
Ok, so to you, my brewing compadres I must turn and pick yer brains.

I usually like to tie the things I'm brewing to some piece of the moment and as I plan an RIS for this Sunday, I've got to think of Superbowl additions.

New Orleans is a piece of cake - chicory coffee.

Indy though? What am I supposed to do, throw a horse in there? Maybe a big racing slick? What am I missing about that town with a qb that I still have residual college animosity towards?

Anyone that commutes 3 hours is a friggin moron

Or lives in Los Angeles. :)

I drive 36 miles round trip to work every day (except Thursday when I get to code in the peace and quiet of home). If there weren't any traffic it would take me 20 minutes each way. But oy, the time it takes some days.

We're very excited in Oklahoma to win the first round. The only negative part of HB2348 is that it looks to put a stop to internet sales & shipping of alcohol into the state. >:(   

Ahh, the law, she gives and she taketh away...

The sales and shipping bit I assume kills all alcohol including wine? Might be a response to the decision a few years back that you couldn't ban everything but wine.

I'm trying to smoke my own malt with cherry wood (a-la Briess Cherrywood Malt). 

Ohh, I know.. next month's Zymurgy will have something. :)

Have you had that one before?  Caldera makes some seriously good beers.

Indeedly I have. Damn tasty. The only one I haven't had out of the can before is the Uncommon Brewers and I've had that one on draft.

Thinking this might be a two-fer week for me.

Saturday will be the monthly Falcons meeting (we had to move it from our usual Sunday due to some football game one week and Valentine's Day the next) . I'll be leading a tasting of canned craftbeers - PBR (ok, really, I'm using that for doctoring purposes), OB Mama Little Yella Pils, Uncommon Brewers Siamese Twin Ale (think Wit), Caldera IPA, 21st Amendment IPA/Watermelon Wheat / Monk's Blood depending upon my scouts findings and OB Ten Fidy Imperial Stout.

Sunday, I'ma going to brew - a big mama jammer of an RIS. Oh yeah.

food served at the Grand Banquet was not of the highest caliber.

Nope, before Sean got involved it was standard hotel banquet chow.

Pax though brought the whole thing to an amazing level. I don't think I heard one person say that it wasn't worth it.

Bigger is almost always better. So unless you're cramped on storage space, get it.

There's a certain point where that breaks down, but don't sweat it.

At last year's conference in Oakland, with Sean Paxton cooking, the food at the banquet was one of the highlights of the conference, AFAIAC.

And since Pax is cooking again.. well you do the math!

We used to get Maisels out here. I really liked that one in my younger beer drinking days. A bit darker and more caramelly than the others from memory.

I think the spam thread disappeared last night.

It did.. I modulated it into another frequency space outside the standard human perceptive space.

Interesting.  I made the same suggestion way back at post #3.  :-X

Looking back.. indeedly you did. I just reinforced your already wise suggestion that got lost in the shuffle of browser plugins. :)

Hmm.. to my way of thinking that means you really should make a Hoppy Wheat Stout with Oats
