I have lots of stock of pale 2-row. Any suggestions for a light relatively quick turn around brew? (I guess I am thinking about something that is more like a pilner with some kick 5%+ ABV)

I just finished up a fine pilsner I hated to see go. I will make more next year! I just tapped a Belgian Wit.

You have to say it like a Sawks fan would, Bob.

I just got out my New England to English phrase book and I think it says:

"my hovercraft is full of eels"

Is that close?

Does this type of brew have much of an alcohol flavor or is it pretty smooth?

Yahd Wahk Bahn Yahd Beah = You would walk barnyard bear? That seems a bit out in left field for a recipe name.

Yahd Wahk Bahn Yahd Beah = Yard Work Barn Yard Beer

You would have to hear my neighbor say though. He is always "out in the Yahd doing some Wahk. As far as I can tell the word "Cod" is also a multiple meaning word eg:

Cod Fish
Power Cod
Birthday Cod
Voters Cod

Sometimes it is harder than understanding someone from Staten Island

As for the "Sawks" I hope they struggle another 86 years

"my hovercraft is full of eels" is a black lager

Does this type of brew have much of an alcohol flavor or is it pretty smooth?

Not at all. It is light and easy drinking with a wonderful floral from the aroma hops.

I've just been starting to sample my summer ale brewed two weeks ago. It uses 100 percent Maris Otter for an O.G. of 1.043, all Crystal hops to 20 IBUs and Wyeast 1318. I'd say Scott's version with two-row and added victory malt approximates the flavor, which at 4.3 percent ABV is my idea of easy summer drinking. As for Vanguard hops, I have no experience with them.

Craig, obviously you've never done yard work (yahd wahk) in New England. I think it was Pete Seeger who pointed out that Boston was the only city where the Kingston Trio could have set the old 1950s folk song "M.T.A." and rhyme "Charlie" with "trolley".
