The answer is 42.

The problem is you don't know the question!

Glissade was another one that took me completely by suprise. I have to start looking for ABV on the labels. I drank a sixer of it one night and then sat there saying 'how did I get so drunk? I just had a those nice easy drinking beers" then I looked at the label. geesh!

I would think the lager yeast would be really clean, not leaving much yeast character while the ardennes will have some nice esters that might compliment or clash with the lime. Not really sure. I bet the Belgian would deal with the simple sugars better though.

let me guess, ackes place? did youcatch and The Wards shows back then? Man I always wished I had.

You got it.  Rasputins and Last Chance were our usual haunts as well.  After a while, we started going to J.P. something ( can't remember...those brain cells are long gone ) on the same block as The Chance.  It was mostly townies, but since I was raised in VT, thems was my peoples :)

Never saw the Wards but then I could have walked into Nectar's and seen Phish anytime I wanted but never did.

mmm nectars gravy fries. one of the most satisfying and disgusting things on the face of the planet. But late at night a little drunk and very stoned there is very little that compares to the joy of a giant pile of fries and a bowl of greasy turkey gravy. And I am a life long vegetarian!

I have not heard of this show but on the legality issue it would be pretty easy to either a) go ahead and spend the time and money to get them a legal permit or b) make it easy on themselves and get a permit to distill for fuel which is quite easy to do. Just don't drink it! that would make it illegal.

I live on the 4th floor of an apartment complex in a rather urban area, so unfortunately I don't have the option of using a propane setup without doing something very stupid and/or illegal on the patio.  I'll do a test run tonight just to get a ballpark time of how long it'll take and to see if it's even possible.  That being said, the pot fits perfectly over two burners, so who knows.   

I don't think you will have a problem. I have done plenty of full boils on two burners of some pretty funky old electric and gas stoves. Maybe ended up a little darker than it might have otherwise but never tasted scorched. It might also take longer so there is the issue of continued conversion of the partial mash part. Until it reaches a temp sufficient to denature all the enzymes your wort will continue to convert and thus get slighly more fermentable. But not much I would think.

I'm feeling making another one too. As for using the dregs, don't I have to let it sit for like the next 3 years until it's drinkable or something? Again no idea, just experimenting.

yeah it will want some age but you can transfer it to secondary or a barrel after a while and reuse the 'cake'.

I will do so far as to say not even the red sauce and cheese matter. If the crust is thin and chewy it can have olive oil and sun dried tomatoes or spinach and herbs or some asiago sprinked all over it and it is good pizza. If the crust is soggy or too thick or bready or... it's not good pizza. Might be okay pizza and if your hungy it might be just the thing to make you smile but it's all about that chewy/crispy crust. everything else is just dressing. That being said, at my house when I make pizza it's a big thick cicillian style with lots of yummy toppings and that is good to. at least until I get a pizza stone or line my oven with quarry tile.

Well patience be damned I went right after work to buy another packet of Brett. l. (for another $13), get home and of course the freakin' thing is bubbling! It took 4 full days, but tiny bubbles have started! I I could pitch the new packet I got or I suppose I could make another sour this weekend. Any votes?

make another one. if what eltharyon says is true you don't want to pitch more in there right? I have no idea if it is true but...
