All Things Food / Re: New cook book!
« on: April 07, 2011, 08:35:05 AM »
I can't get enough of the cooking shows. My wife and I are addicted to the British Masterchef series, though they change it up every time and some changes are a bit hit or miss (like this season, which is a bit too Top Chef-like for my tastes). The Brits are capable of making a cooking competition show without being nasty or injecting unnecessary drama.

What I miss most from the USA is Lydia's Family Table. I learned a lot from Lydia.

I would always put the grains in right away, let them steep while the water was heating up and pull them out just before it starts to boil. I did that for years and made some damn good extract brews.

I brewed a strong dark mild. Sort of a cross between an English dark mild and a schwartzbier.

Oh and bring Brasserie de la Seine. That stuff is great. Have you tried their "Brussels People's Ale?"

I've been meaning to correct myself on this. Of course you meant Zinnebir. I knew that. And yeah, also damn good.

I was having such a nice day. Why did you do that?   ???

Aw, c'mon. You must not have heard their rendition of Number of the Beast:

The Pub / Re: English Ales - Am I alone

Nope, you're not alone. The Brits (and the Germans in Dusseldorf) do a great job of packing a lot of flavor into a low ABV beer.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Mock Pilsener

I (and others) greatly enjoyed the mock pilsner I made with Wyeast California Lager 2112, fermented in the very low 60's.

I believe that would be considered a "Steam Beer".

Not necessarily.  The grainbill is crucial in defining a steam beer also, not just the yeast. 

Yup. I love that yeast and have used it for a few very un-steam beers. For the pils (the recipe is around here somewhere), I used mostly pilsner malt an saaz hops. If I had to enter it in a competition, I might have called it a kolsch, but I called it a pilsner. j

Congrats! Here's hoping the name is the biggest obstacle.

Are there vegetarian tacos?

Yep. Instead of meat, use lard-free refried beans. That's a meal in our house at least once a week.

Hmm... I can think of a couple things:
I'm coming upon a year of having a decent job that I enjoy after being without for about 2.5 years.

I live in Belgium.
