    And bloody rich I shall be.
    But what kind of beer is that?! I can't read the type at the bottom: looks like "beer brewed with sauteed mushrooms"...

    It was 80º here yesterday. I look at those warm fuzzy beer labels that come around this time of year - like SN Celebration - and it's like some cosmic joke.

    After 80º I get impatient, so about then. 78 to be safe. So are you brewing as we speak?

    Did you ever try eating a hop pellet? I've had Fuggles - it's really pretty good.
    So are you going to send out some bottles?

    Have you ever tried those thermometer strips? They're great - just stick it to the side of the carboy and you can actually watch the temperature fall. Much better than sticking a thermometer in every five minutes.

    1) The Beer Thread can never stay on topic for too long

    2) All topics must eventually become confused

    2a) You do not talk about the Beer Thread.

    3) Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.

    4) Running as a topic is not well tolerated in BEER

    5) All archival questions must be submitted to me, since I own the archives.

    6. Regular participation in Beer Thread discussions is optional.

    6a) The definition of "regular" is up to the individual ... your results may vary.

    7) Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball


    Randy - what is Happy Fun Ball? and why no taunting?


     



    Perhaps also
    8) Always go where the Huskies go, but never eat that Yellow Snow.

    ----



    It's all good
