The Pub / Greeting from the Gulf!
« on: October 13, 2012, 04:14:50 PM »
I agree with you Carl, just have fun giving you a hard time. Though I do think, in some ways, the gulf is prettier than the beaches of Hawaii. That said, I'd dig having a coffee tree. ;)

I spent 8 yrs in Mobile, Al and I love the Gulf.  The beaches along the panhandle of Fl are the best beaches in the US...the mainland that is.  I grew up in HI and have a condo in Kihei, Maui and as much as I love the Gulf beaches, I can't think of any way that those beaches are prettier than the beaches of Hawaii.  Sure, there are some beaches on the islands that are nothing to write home about, but the great ones (and there are a lot of them) are some of the best in the world.

I guess it is the sugar sand and the water wild life I see at the gulf that I never saw at Hawaii. Or maybe it's the $2000 plane ride that sours me as opposed to the 6 hour drive. ;) I never lived in Hawaii, so I don't know it well. I have lived at the gulf for a period.

And the thing about the sun setting 5000 miles away is pretty damn awesome.

Beer Recipes / How much Munich 1 in a bock?
« on: October 13, 2012, 05:20:53 AM »
It's definitely something fun to play around with. I toyed with bock recipes for years and I really enjoyed my 100% Munich bocks (well, 85-90% and a bit of pils to help out with conversion) but my favorite recipes had a touch of caramunich, and as Blatz suggests, under 5%. I've also been known to darken it up some with some carafa special and even dark wheat malt - but I am not a puritan. Where's the fun in that? ;)

I'm actually ready to get back. I like the beach a lot but I would not want to live here. I have a home on 7 acres of mountain land dropped in the middle of a fairly remote forest that I enjoy very much and a business that I am looking forward to get back too.

Not saying I wouldn't mind owning a beach house, but a week is enough for me.

some of my best bock recipes use a blend of Munich I and Munich II for the majority of the grist (if not the entirety). I usually add at least 10-20% pils for the enzymes. I also like a touch of cara munich as well.

It's gonna get better now that I finally got a contract for Amarillo! I'll definitely send you some Denny since I owe you for hooking me up with Ted as my hop source! :)
Thats where all puterbaugh farms amarillo stock went huh?

I highly doubt it. I'm only getting 100 lbs or so. Probably all used for strictly dry hopping.

The Pub / Trained by a Guinea Pig
« on: October 10, 2012, 05:34:51 AM »
About three years ago I got my son a guinea pig for Christmas. He named it Henry. I was surprised at how fat Henry got so Quickly, then one morning about 2 or 3 weeks later my son came busting in the door yelling "Henry had babies". It was a three for one special, apparently, and we changed Henry's name to Henrietta.

There is fixin' to be a local brewery around here that I am planning to go visit, but it will be the first one and they will be draft only to start. Otherwise, the best beer you are getting at the package store is Negro Modelo.

I also brought a keg of my Belgian White and a homebrew I made spiced with ginger, honey and lemon peel in a corny keg.
