The Pub / Ik Ben Belg!

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?

HA! The bottle I cracked yesterday, after 2 weeks, was undercarbonated. Tasted pretty good, though.

Mash was 68 C for 1.25 hours.

A Flemish red is my style of choice with Thai food, especially if shrimp is involved.

I think it's fine. I just got home after being gone for a week (2 weeks in the bottles) and all the bottles are in tact. I'll crack one open later tonight (though I'm being told it's margarita night) or tomorrow.

That's awesome! I don't go into the clubs section very often, so I almost missed it. Looking forward to the report.

The tempeh rueben at Southern Sun rocks! Oh, the beer's not too bad either, especially if you stick to the nitros. Besides the Chop House, anywhere is good for vegetarians.

Is Juanitas closed yet? I'm drooling thinking about their veggie tamales.

Spend more than a night or two. I lived there 6 years and still miss it.

Rubber tub with a lid isn't a bad idea. I think I have one that will work.

I'm not overly worried, since it's not the first time I've been off by about the same amount in my FG. Previously I let the fermentation go a lot longer. I'm beginning to think maybe there's a problem with my hydrometer (or its reader).

I don't own a car, it's the only way I get around most times.  

That's awesome, but how do you get your beer and brewing bits?

Dammit, you guys are freakin' me out. I went ahead and bottled anyway. I just covered my bottles.

The St. Bernardus peeps used to brew what is now know as Westvleteren before the St. Sixtus peeps got their own brewery. The St. Bernardus Abt. 12 is modeled after the Westvleteren 12. If you can't find Westie 12, the Abt. 12 is the next best thing (some might say even better).

OG was 1.059.

I think I'm going to proceed as planned, unless I get a "Don't do it you idiot!" within the next hour or two. I planned to prime for fairly low carbonation anyway. If I get more bubbles, so be it.
