Hey Porter, Hey Porter...

All kidding aside, it would have to be the Barley Wine that I made 2 years ago.  It won a 1st place and came in second in Best of Show.  I still have one bomber left that I plan on enjoying over the holidays.

I can't decide because of my beer ADD condition...

Thanks, good to know...I unfortunately made a Rye Pale Ale with Munich, then I read a post that Munich and Rye don't go together well...and what do you know, I really don't like this beer very much at all.  It is almost like the Munich is masking the rye flavor completely.

I am planning on making a Belgain Dark Strong/Quad this weekend and was thinking of splitting the base malt with Pilsner and Two row.  I've never done this before and was wondering if this is a bad idea - should I just use all Pilsner malt.  Do these grains clash or would this be alright?

I've got a X-mas Ale clone, Rye Pale Ale, and Belgian Dubbel on tap with an IPA and Cider on deck.  I'm going to bottle my Barley Wine this weekend that has been ageing on yellow birch.

All I can say is YES!  I can't make Philly this year, but Grand Rapids is very close to me and I can't wait.

Great movie.  I don't think I've ever seen my son laugh as hard as when Pee Wee drives the Harley right into a billboard sign.

You could also try FWH some Amarillo for a nice smooth flavor.

American IPA with the fresh Amarillo and Simcoe that just came in.

I went to Short's about a year and a half ago and every beer that I tried there was excellent.  You might want to check out their website

Brewed up a first runnings Quad with 90%pils/10% Munich only.  Added 1lb of D2 yesterday to it.  Happily chugging along at 68F on a repitch of Westmalle yeast.  Debating adding another pound of D2 versus the dark candi sugar?

Topped up the mash with pils, munich, vienna, caramunich, and carafa II for a Dusseldorf Alt for the second runnings.  Fermenting along well at 58F with WY1007.
You just gave me a great idea.  I was planning on making a quad in a few weeks and two beers are better than one ;)

Nice to hear that your heff turned out great.  Was the problem the kegs and fittings?

I might try a Christmas Ale Clone recipe from Great Lakes.  My wife and friends really like it and I just want to see how close I can get to the real thing.
