1) Why doesn't the beer mingle in the can like it does in the bottle? They both contain the liquid and I'd think the typical shipping process would mix things up nicely.
I'm a big fan of Hoegaarden. It's a Belgian white wheat beer and is pretty distinctive.
Apparently beer was banned in Iceland until March 1, 1989.WIKI That may have something to do with it.
I'm pleased to announce that FRC001, a wild strain of yeast isolated from chocolate syrup, has completed its fermentation of my test batch after 21 days. Its apparent attenuation is approximately 77%, and can tolerate at least a 10% alcohol concentration (by volume). Next step is to brew Pete's Bitter Black Existence, an imperial stout with notes of coffee and chocolate, on the dry side. This yeast creates a very dry finish on the palate, so that will allow the flavors of the specialty malts and the hops to shine through. The goal is to make an imperial stout that isalmosttoo stout to drink, "almost" being the key word.It should finish at around 10.5% ABV and 85 - 90 IBU's, meaning it will be alcoholic and bitter. And black. And bitter. Did I mention bitter?There will be pictures.
The Extra Stout, however, is the business.
I've really been enjoying Liberty Ale from Anchor Brewing Co. It's a hazy APA that has a nice bitter flash on the palate with flowery undertones. It has very flavorful hops to it that works well with the earthy yeast. I find that it's a great summer brew to enjoy on a hot evening.
Sometimes I wish I liked at least some beer, eh,
...Not drinking leaves you out of a lot of social situations that I'd like to be a part of...
(Please don't kill me beer lovers. >.>)
I also hate bars.
I used to, but I have found a couple that are essentially coffee shops that serve alcohol instead.
