6 days is not something my rig supports

I think you are mixing up threads. Communion beer takes 40 days to be brewed.

Thank you, beersk.  Hence my lack of participation.  I pop into this forum at least once per hour and I have raised my eyebrows an inordinate amount of times looking at this thread, which until now has not warranted a contribution from yours truly, excepting of course the contributions I made in the first few hours of the thread's existence.

Oh well, didn't intend there to be any religious sidekicks, so let me conclude:

I'll make a trip to Cologne, and drink a few Kolsch. If I like them (and think my family will like them), I'll brew a Kolsch, otherwise it'll be the low alcohol Chouffe.

Let us know what Kolsch you like.  I really like the style.  I've just had some that are hit and miss.

If you wanted to go with the consuming stale bread theme, then you could brew a kvass. And pair it with a table strength saison brewed with the cheapest wine you can get your hands on. That would fit the communion theme as I remember it.

Then again, maybe your clergy is classier out your way....

I like that the guy who made this ^^^^ post went on to call the thread weird.  8)

Ha, well, I don't often associate religion and beer, so that's why I feel it's a strange idea/thread. I'm not offended or anything...

I am offended AND jealous all at once that Frank gets to just go to Cologne whenever he damn well pleases.

Yeah, gotta be amazing to live in the land of incredible Belgian beers and be able to drive across the border into Germany for great beers there. Bucket list trip for me.

yea, pretty cool. I suppose I can drive to Vermont for a Heady Topper. Not bad, but not the same.
Also, living near the Monastery that produces America's only Trappist beers, and being friends with some monks, the beer/religion idea is less surprising.

In practice this does not happen a lot. Belgians do not drink the beers Germans drink and vice versa.

I like the fact that the monks are not teetotalers.  My pastor hosts a weekly "Theology on Tap" at a craft beer pub located down the street from my church - to give folks an opportunity to have a few brews and discuss religion and religious issues in a laid back environment. I think that is a refreshing approach.

Good luck with your search for the appropriate beer - I am sure that there is no wrong choice on this one.

Oh well, even lucky me sometimes gets bored, and then I make a trip to the Champagne region to stack up ;)
