It does sound delicious! For some reason I have yet to make it to the brewery (I know they've been crazy busy getting it going, so I'm trying not to be annoying). I did ask about that beer a week or so ago at ML Fontainas and even they didn't have it yet.

How's the bitterness? I love Taras Boulba, but I'd love it even more if they shifted some of hops toward the end of the boil.

As long as it's in your checked luggage and under the weight limit, there shouldn't be a problem.

Ooh, good call on Pints Pub. I love that place. Very good cask ales and they used to boast the largest selection of single malt scotch outside of Britain.

Hey ryang, do they still have that odd table game? I forgot what it's called or even what it's about, but it was a blast to play after a couple drinks.

I usually spread mine out in the uncultivated bit of my in-law's yard. One time (and only one time) I put the mash tun in the garage and forgot about it for about a week. I thought someone died in the garage.

I used honey instead of sugar for a tripel-ish beer I brewed last winter. I added it 1 minute before the end of boil. It turned out really nice, but I think I got lucky with the honey, too. I bought the cheapest thing I could find in any quantity, which was a buckwheat honey. It has a really nice, almost malty flavor to it that I think worked really well with the beer.

I've got to recommend Wynkoop, I think it's contractual. :)  Great food there though, with good beer and you can walk to Falling Rock after lunch/dinner.  Walk over to Great Divide too.

Drive to Boulder and visit Avery, Mountain Sun, and Redstone Meadery.

I endorse everything said here. Just thinking about the nachos at Wynkoop makes me drool. Best ever.

Beer Travel / Re: Westvleteren 12, where to get some....

Bought a 12 from a bottle shop in Brussels in December of 2009... just drank it to celebrate passing the NY bar... pretty good, but no better than Rochefort 10 or St. Bernardus 12, IMO.

I agree on the 12. It's a bit overrated. The 6, on the other hand, doesn't get nearly enough attention.

Definitely something rapture themed. You know it's this Saturday, right?

Whatever the style, you gotta give it a rapture-based name. End Times Barley Wine? Purgatory Pilsner? Armageddon Red(den)?

2.5. I'm a bit surprised. I thought for sure I was more annoying than that. Maybe I lied.

I am my own (no mercy) judge. My "clientel" confirms what I already know. I don't have to prove it by sparring with others. But, to each his own.
Don't really care. I feel I have a good palate and I know if something is wrong. If I don't know how to fix it, I come here.

Isn't it 'Ik bin belg' ?

Nope. Not in Flemish, anyway.

Congrats to the expat!

So will you retain dual citizenship?

Thanks! Yep, I get dual citizenship. I can go to Cuba!

General Homebrew Discussion / Brewing Basics Video for Download?
« on: May 03, 2011, 01:01:46 AM »
I'm testing out video server that the school I work for recently purchased. It comes pre-loaded with a bunch of educational videos, but you can also upload your own. There's already a "wine and spirits" category under "hobbies" and I thought it would be cool to add a brewing video. The problem is, everything I can find is streamed. Does anybody know where I can find a good video on brewing basics that can be fully downloaded?

Got the letter yesterday that I've been granted Belgian nationality. Pretty freakin' cool, huh? Toer de Geuze last weekend with friends (including philliplamb), Bin Laden distinguished and now this. What's next? Win the lottery?
