Beer Travel / Re: The Curse
« Last post by homoeccentricus on Today at 03:45:04 AM »
Still, think I'd like to have a beer in Italy,  glad the rest of the trip seemed great
When we left the brewpub we found a Paulaner pub where they had draft Hacker-Pschorr Naturtrub and Paulaner Maerzen. Not the best of beers, but better than the brewpub's. The remainder of my stay I'll stick to the local wines (the keyboard suggested wives) and the local aperitive, Hugo: a cocktail of sparkling wine, elderberry syrup and mint leaves.

I have the same with coffee. Can't drink it anymore without internally scoring it. Even in Italy a lot of coffee gets a so-so score.

My wife is into horses, though she hasn't ridden in years...tell you what though they're on an entirely different plane of expense compared to anything else I've encountered.

The Blood Orange Hefeweizen that I brewed as sort of a homage to the band my brother is in (Born Again Heathens, hence the beer name Born Again Heathenweizen) is apparently a hit.  I heard from them today, and they asked me if I would brew another batch of it for them to take with them when they go to Florida in September.  They are also releasing an EP, and my brother asked if I may be interested in brewing another batch if they do a release party.  I'm pretty stoked about that.  Looks like my next brew or two will be the Hefe again.

All Grain Brewing / Re: BIAB spent grain

   I'd be the last to claim any significant level of expertise, but if it aint putting a bubble through the airlock of blowoff tube every few seconds I won't pitch it. In fact I won't start the brew until my starter is chugging along like I think it should. Sorry, still some of that 80's Neolithic brewing thing tainting my thinking.

I would power-wash my kids on the lowest setting if it was possible just for ease.
+1,000 :)

I teach high school.  Would not ever want any part of the record-keeping/ meetings of sped.

In addition to the feeling I stated earlier, I've recently noticed another bonus to home brewing.

It's a damn cheap hobby compared to auto racing.

Recently re-entered the latter world after a six year hiatus. Has really made me appreciate that brew gear is cheap. (relative to car parts and safety equipment...)
Wow. That's an angle I hadn't considered. Next time my wife complains about my home brew expenses I'll say "it's a hell of a lot cheaper than training thoroughbred horses." I'm sure that will work ;)
