What, no coal porter?  I figured that one would have a permanent tap on your kegerator.
Tasty :)  But I have no permanent taps, do you?

Yes, a quasi-permanent tap for sparkling mead.  Being on tap it is force-carbonated.  Currently serving a kiawe honey - lychee melomel.

If you feel like having still mead on tap you can push it with argon or nitrogen.  It's how wine on tap is served.    At the very least you could push it with beer gas and have only a little bit of carbonation.

I serve my still mead from the bottle.  I like the presentation, and portability.

And as twisted as it may seem, I enjoy bottling.  It's like the exclamation point on a great idea. 

When the bottle is sealed, all that remains to be done is the enjoyment.  A case of full, sealed bottles gives me a great deal of satisfaction.

I like to push German lagers with argon.  It enhances the noble hops.

Why would that do anything to the taste? Argon is an inert gas and CO2 would still be released. I'm not saying you're wrong, but it makes no sense to me,

You know, noble hops... Return of the King... and all like that.

And that's how you know you're on the AHA forum.  You make a joke playing noble hops against noble gases and people laugh.

If you really want to go nuts. Try going back to the Old English. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Wl-OZ3breE

Or maybe Middle English. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QE0MtENfOMU

How the heck did modern English come from that???

I've read snippets from the Wycliffe Bible, and when I say read, I mean, parsed only slightly.  The German influence helps me read it a bit better but still its almost unreadable.  Folk who have complained about the archaic language of the King James translation have scant cause for complaint compared to this old translation!

One of the great writers is Sir William Blackstone. To bring this style back would be an advancement, not a regression, of the English language.

 An example from Sir BIlly:

"Law, in its most general and comprehensive sense, signifies a rule of action; and is applied indiscriminately to all kinds of action, whether animate, or inanimate, rational or irrational. Thus we say, the laws of motion, of gravitation, of optics, or mechanics, as well as the laws of nature and of nations. And it is that rule of action, which is prescribed by some superior, and which the inferior is bound to obey."
