The thought was instead of bottling, transfer to another carboy, along with 3/4 cup corn sugar. Waiting for the right carbonation level and then directly onto the water cooler. Maybe great for parties. /Mal Card card at APOLLO.HP.COM Return to table of contents

No. I recall seeing the .signature and I'm sure that wasn't it. Must have been "FATTEST"... --- Dick Dunn {ncar;ico;stcvax}!raven!rcd or rcd at raven.uucp Return to table of contents
Date: Mon, 12 Mar 90 10:53 PST From: JEEPSRUS <ROBERTN%FM1 at sc.intel.com> Subject: anchient Syrian beer, Hops, Snow... I saw a glimpse of the Sacramento BEE newspaper about a week ago. They said that a San Fransisco based brewery (I think ANCHOR) was able to decipher hieroglyphics from an anchient Syrian writing which had a beer recipe! I think United Press did the story. Did anyone else see this? Apparently it was a pretty good beer, but had to be used quickly, as there were no hops in it as a preservative. Apparently the Syrians hadn't found out about hops at that point in time. I've been trying to find the article again, but hav'nt been successful. The short time for which this beer is drinkable brings up a interesting comment. It is my understanding that hops originated as a preservative. Today it is used for flavoring more than anything else. But, can any brewery really say they use NO preservatives. It seems that by todays standards, that MAY be possible. But, technically, this is a false claim? By the way, Cher, Snow balls??? :-) That was a great one!!! A few people around here were rolling on the floor when I told them that! There is one thing about snow that is great! I skiid Tahoe yesterday. It was fantastic. But what was really great was coming home and relaxing with a Big mug of homebrewed Stout. Life does'nt get much better!

Date: Mon, 12 Mar 90 15:32 EST From: <S_KOZA%UNHH.BITNET at MITVMA.MIT.EDU> Subject: Vagabond Ginger Ale Hi All, In response to a recent posting inquiring about making gingered beers: I recently concocted a batch of Gingered Lager, loosely following Papazian's Vagabond Ginger Ale recipe, which came out rather delightful. In the recipe it is suggested to use 2-4 oz. of fresh grated ginger root and I overzealously went to the upper limits. I felt that the ginger was overpowering unless the beer was served very cold and when I make this for the next holiday season I'll cut the amount of ginger in half. Happy Fermentations, S.

Date: Mon, 12 Mar 90 22:04:44 EST From: nolan at lheavx.DNET.NASA.GOV (Tom Nolan (nolan at lheavx.dnet.nasa.gov)) Subject: Words Now, I have several large and heavy dictionaries, some with very small type indeed, and the best I can find on "cyser" is that it's an old-fashioned way to say "cider", and as for "melomel", it doesn't exist at all. What's the scoop on these new meanings? Return to table of contents

Mason - Image Systems - MKO2-2/K03 - 603884[DTN264]-1503 12-Mar-1990 2238" <mason at habs11.enet.dec.com> Subject: Brewpubs in Houston and New Orleans? Hi - My first post to this NL, so it will also serve as a test. Testing...1,2,3... I am taking trips to Houston, TX and New Orleans, LA within the next month or so. I have looked at the directory of brewpubs, but see none listed for those areas. Does anyone know of any hiding out there? I am about to invest in a setup, and will be posting my ideas here for comment in the near future. This is a GREAT source of info (even if there have been no mailings for the past four or five days...where are you?). Thanks...Gary Return to table of contents
