For someone who's not going to say anything about it, you sure are talkin' a lot about it... you pickin' a fight, boy?

Them fightin' words!

Drinking your first would be excusable, continuing to drink more isn't.

Pity.


In contrast, I enjoyed a bottle of Scottish Midnight Sun Dark Porter Ale from Williams Bros Brewing Co., Scotland, and a bottle of Pugsley's Shipyard Imperial Porter.

Oddly - they don't list the Imperial Porter

Bottled and corked my blueberry mead/melomel today, turned out quite well.

I have ~5gals on the smoked/spiced pale ale to bottle. Wanted to keg it this weekend as well, but my CO2 regulator seemingly quit working, which is needed to keg. Also means I can't drink the rest of my spiced kolsch in a keg, though I suppose I could open the top and pour it all out into appropriate containers, i.e. stein.

It's Oktoberfest! Great brews!

I've been enjoying Innis & Gunn Scottish Ale aged in an oak Malt Whisky cask. It has a nice smoky malt whisky taste. For the ale age in rum cask, see my post #308 on page 20.

I might have to drag myself over to Oak Pond Brewery. They take Oktoberfest pretty seriously and usually come up with some great batches.

When I was a college freshman (back in the '60s), there was this little place called the "Beer Stub" that sold "German Dark Beer" on tap. They would fill up a gallon jug for 2 bucks. I always bought two gallons for a night of partying.

I love Oktoberfest Marzen style beers. I've already picked up quite a few different Marzens and will be scoping out the local stores for more every week. I'm definitely going to stock up.

I was disappointed by the Ayeinger Oktoberfest-Marzen, but only because Celebrator is just SO good. It's probably one of the easiest beers to drink I've ever had, but there was just nothing special about it. (I did buy a second one and might pick up more if I don't find anything else worth buying)

Just bottled a habanero IPA. Added a sliced habanro pepper to the last 10 mins of the boil, and then added another during the secondary, which it sat on for about a month.

Can definitely taste the pepper, but not to overwhelming to my taste buds.

What a cool idea. You might want to try one of rhodys ghost peppers. They do have a unique flavor.

Not bad actually, the heat is there noticeably in the finish, but doesn't linger or overwhelm in the aftertaste. Quite drinkable I think, though those sensitive to capsicum may not agree.

Been told though the capsicum flavor will increase as it ages, so it might get fiery hot with time.

Insanity,

Where did you hear the capsaicin's flavor will increase as it ages ? Don't know if that is true or not, but I suspect subjecting the ghost plants I grow to repeated periods of stress, lack of water, makes the capsaicin in them a bit stronger. Don't know for sure because I didn't send them off to have it measured, just by tasting.

Rhody... Thanks for the heads up, Don...
