 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D


And you can tell her I said that.  ;D

Conversely, God secretly dips his finger into every batch of Trappist Ale and tastes it, just to see if his employees are still on their toes. And you can tell her I said that, too.

That's another possibility, For every palate, there is a Belgian specialty beer. Orval?

Expensive habit (so to speak) but relatively easy to reverse-engineer at home.

I just made a cider out of the simplest ingredients (literally your basic generic brand store apple juice, and champagne yeast) and after carbing, wouldn't you know it, my wife loves the stuff!  My wife dislikes all beer and most other alcohol...exceptions for semi-sweet German white wine and some sweet drinks like Amaretto Sours.  But she loves this cider!

I'm going to try something like this, but I think I may just do the non-fermented route...some vodka or grain alcohol in a premixed batch.  Easier and with a higher likelihood that she would like it.

Why not just mix it by the drink?
