The Pub / Re: Buddhism?

Do they grill steaks as well?  ;)

When their father died they went through 20 briskets, countless cases of beer and probably a good 3 bottles of Hennessey. The party lasted a week. The brisket was sliced, marinated and grilled, served with sticky rice and papaya salad- the food was f'ing awesome!

In that case, they follow the tenets very loosely. Meat is forbidden in buddhist as well as alcohol. But I am sure there are people who make their own rules in buddhism as there are in all forms of dogma.

Guess what? Besides not allowing eating meat buddhists are forbidden to drink alcohol.  ;)

If you are really interested here is a couple of good books:

"The Heart and Mind of the Buddha's Teaching" by Thich Naht Hanh

Actually, anything by the said author.

And, FWIW, while religious topics are forbidden here Buddhism can also be looked at as applied philosophy, so IMO it can remain open for now.

Perhaps had he actually not been wearing pants he would have gotten the recipe.

It would irritate me a little. She could at least give you some direction. A brewer, like a chef, is certainly allowed to have a few secrets. But they also usually like to talk about the process and ingredients.

First thought is Maibock, even with the low gravity - that's really what it will taste like in the end IMO. The other thought is maybe something like a Dortmunder Export, but with a little kick in the BU department. Looking at the recipe its not near hoppy enough for me to consider it a "lager" IPA, or even an Imperial Pils for that matter.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Saison yeast substitution tips
« on: March 10, 2011, 02:50:53 PM »
+1 - a saison should be dry to the bone - or at least close. And while I agree that a saison can be sorta a "catch all" - T-58 isn't going to really be the best yeast for a saison. You need something that is highly attenuative with a fruity and/or peppery and/or earthy and/or funky character to really be a saison.

The Pub / Re: Cigars and Beer
« on: March 10, 2011, 01:24:55 PM »
I'm not a big beer and cigar guy because I don't often find beers go well with cigars, which is why I set out to try and design a beer that actually compliments the cigar. Seemed to work well. That said, I agree: coffee goes well with a  cigar. But since most of my cigars are smoked in the evening I find bourbon to be the best pairing.

The price was the same.  They just charged you a $3 penalty for using the wrong glass!

ROTF!  :D

I just released a beer called "Tobacco Road" a couple weeks ago that I designed to compliment a fine cigar. It was an Imperial Amber ale that I aged for 4 months and dry hopped 3 times in the bright tanks. I find a lot of beers get lost when paired witha  cigar but this one, while a very nice beer on its own right, was complimented nicely when paired with a medium bodied cigar.

I've never seen yeast look like "fuzz" but hopefully thats all it was.

Sounds like acetobacter, which is common when the beer is exposed to oxygen. Which is one reason I don't think it is  a good idea to secondary without being able to purge the head space with Co2.

You should add all your yeast at the beginning, when the conditions are more favorable for them to multiply, rather than to add them in the middle of fermentation when conditions are less favorable. For  a beer like this you best bet is to brew  a lower gravity pale ale and use than slurry for your super high gravity ale.
