    i always knew my neighbor greg was a good man.

    i went to his pool party this weekend and he said that he had yingling on tap. what he actually meant is that he had yingling on tap in his kegorator which sat right next to a secong refrigerator completely filled with every beer you could imagine and 3 other kegs just sittin there that he picked up because he saw them on sale. i always knew he was a good man, but this weekend i learned that greg is a great man.
    where's my beer?

    Talking moosehead...

    Well, according to ancient manuscripts...

    For optimal Iron Liver training and avoid bruising of internal organs, start with 3 imported bear (no Canadian brands please). Bring 3 cans, remember 3 is the number not 1 not 2 but 3 to the training place (couch). And imported beer it must. Open the 3 cans not 4 not 5 for 3 is the number of beer, one by one and drink it down nice and easy. One must remember drink one after another and stop at 3. The tilting motion of the head should be very smooth and should never spill the holy liquid - not wasting even one single drop. Falling to train properly this devine regime of holy liquid bread of life consumption for one hundred days, thou shalt not receive the Iron Liver Gong.

    I'm digging on Bohemian beer these days. It's not bad.

    For big abv brands, I like a nice Chimay now and then and a couple of others.
    But I do prefer the lagers and I like em smooth and crisp, not heavy and creamy.

    It's good to hear that the US finally has beer after all these years.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    lol @ M108. Funny...I wish I could remember what that's from.

    -N-: would that be a wheat beer? I don't care for wheat beers, they always taste moldy to me. Though, I did try a Bells summer wheat and it wasn't half bad.

    David, most of the US has had good beers, it's just the bible belt south where I live that's behind the times. Though we do make up for it w/ some good corn liquor.

    Smile Hi Oso

    Speaking of corn liquor, we really don't have much good choice when it comes to Burbon up here in the north. What would the best one be in your opinion? BTW, I'd love to make Burbon & Maple glazed turkey breast (stuffed of course) for this Thanksgiving holiday. So I am beginning to practice that receipe now.

    It's hard to go wrong with Jim Beam. Though there are certainly more expensive brnads. Beam also has several upscale bottlings like Black, and Booker.

    for cooking though, you don't really need to go that high up the ladder cost wise. I'd probably not cook with anything better than the Black Label.

    i'm a bourbon affectionado. for cooking the best bourbon is probably the best sipping bourbon. IMO that's the Maker's Mark 70 proof. For drinking i like the Fighting **** 103 or the Wild turkey 101. the **** 103 is a smoother liqour and does well for bourbon flambe dishes. don't cook and drive...

    German wheat beer. They're different than the American wheats. Some of the German wheats have banana/clove overtones that people find funky.

    The Belgian ales can have some pretty musty estery things going on. Supposed to depend on the particular combination of yeasts and bacterias used in the fermentation.

    Actually, the doppelbocks I've made had only a small percentage of wheat along with lighter caramelized grains... more like a hel*****ck.

    Eeeeshh... the automagic censor doesn't let me say,"h e l l e s b o ck"?? It doesn't like "L E S BO"?!? Who doesn't like LE S BOS???

    Bocks are kind of like dessert to me. Start off with exports and marzens... doppelbock for dessert

    The last thing I want to do is hurt you, but it's still on the list.

    -N-

    I like porters, scottish ales and stouts for the most part.

    http://www.highlandbrewing.com/beernews.htm

    this is a great local brewery that' ships regionally and just came out with a new Scottish Ale that I'm dying to try.

    i also just started drinking barley wine style beer. that's some good stuff too

    Ah... good stuff, Oso.

    Scotch ale and Barley wine were some of my first homebrew experiments. If you like those, you'd like marzen and doppelbock. They're like the lager cousins to the strong ales. Super malt bombs... I like those
