Date: Fri, 14 Jan 2005 21:21:58 -0800 (PST) From: Steven Parfitt <thegimp98 at yahoo.com> Subject: RE : Subject: re: Oh, So Hot!! John Schnup John, I hope that is an Ironhead! I have a 1.052 Hefe that I consider a Lawn Mower Beer. If I drink two, I dont' have to mow the lawn. Steven Phil wonders about lawnmower beer, >This is very thirsty weather and it got me thinking that somewhere in my >beer education, I must have missed something. We've talked about "lawn >mower" beers for many years but I never bothered to ask what such a thing >was. Is it supposed to be light in alcohol, so you can scoff down six or >seven in as many minutes (and not fall off the ride on mower)? > >Is it supposed to be light in colour and flavour? > >Or is it supposed to be a heavy duty number to knock the wife right out so >she forgets to ask you to mow the lawn tomorrow? Ah Phil, You are now getting to the real truth of beer. So which exactly is it? It's hard to say. I have the same dilemma when working on my Sportster. Over on the XL-list at www.sportster.org someone will say, "that's a two beer job." So does that mean: 1. it's so quick and easy I will only have time to drink two? or 2. it's so hard and complicated if I have more than two I'll screw it up? Personally, I like you #2 option: >Or is it supposed to be a heavy duty number to knock the wife right out so >she forgets to ask you to mow the lawn tomorrow? But in reality I think it's pretty much a swill beer. I used to add some lemon to mine at bottling time for a nice extra zip. ===== John Schnupp, N3CNL Blue Moon Hombrewery [560.2, 68.6] Rennerian Georgia, VT 95 XLH 1200 ===== Steven, -75 XLCH- Ironhead Nano-Brewery http://thegimp.8k.com Johnson City, TN [422.7, 169.2] Rennerian "There is no such thing as gravity, the earth sucks."

Far be it >from me to think that a rotor head such as myself could possibly lend >cogent commentary to a "Fat Cat" driver, but, here goes.... Hey Chad I had a look at your recipe for a lawn mower beer. Sounds like a beauty. I must admit that after a hot day mowing and slashing, any beer suits me. Not sure about my "Fat Cat driver" image though. If you're referring to my past life driving airliners, I assume then you are an "angry palm tree" driver. Why would you risk your life getting airborne with a mash paddle spinning wildly above your head? Rotors are for mash tuns (and lawn mowers). I don't trust flying in machines when the wings go faster than the fuselage, any more than I'd sample a beer made by Eric Fouch that hadn't been chemically analysed! Phil Return to table of contents
Date: Sat, 15 Jan 2005 02:40:45 -0800 From: "Rowan Williams" <rowan at canberrabrewers.org> Subject: Lawnmower Beer Recipes Hey guys, Just to add a bit more weight to Phil's argument, we here in the cool southern highlands of Canberra are suffering under 103F days! Today it was just under 100F so we are in need of some more of your "lawnmower" beer! Keep the recipe's coming fella's! By the way, on the 18th of Jan, spare a thought for us folks of Canberra. On 18 Jan 2003, we had one hell of a bushfire that ripped the guts out of our town - we lost 4 soles, with many others injured and 491 homes destroyed... Time heals all scars - but having a tasty ale in hand helps too! - -- Cheers, Rowan Williams Canberra Brewers Club Australia [9588.6, 261.5] AR (statute miles) - -- Return to table of contents

Still find that rehydrated and at 1g/litre the 34/70 can be a bit slow to start. Pat Return to table of contents
Date: Sat, 15 Jan 2005 16:26:53 -0500 From: Derek Sheehan <w7rex at arrl.net> Subject: Freezing malt to kill potential bugs I recently purchased a bag of crystal from one of my local connections that, unfortunately, was infested with bugs. Little worms that looked like 3/8" lawn cut-worms. Ugly little fellas! There was also clumps of gains stuck together with silk, evidence of something pupating.... Arrgh! My supplier is really great, so this is just one of those unlucky things that sometimes happen. At least is was just a 1/2 bag! I'm glad I caught it before the beasties spread to my other malt bins. My question is that I recall from another forum that some people freeze their malt for a few days when they purchase it to kill any hitch hikers. Can any of the entomologists in the group verify this? How long do you have to keep it cold to kill bugs? How long can I expect to store malt in Michigan before something decides to eat it? I'd like to know how much malt I can reasonably have stored for my brewing frequency. Luckily, I live in MI and we are experiencing a nice cold front right now. Single digit temps at night and the teens in the day. I think a couple of days under my deck should be enough time in the cold for my malt bins... Derek Return to table of contents
Date: Sat, 15 Jan 2005 22:15:11 -0500 From: "Fred Kingston" <Fred at kingstonco.com> Subject: Oh So Hot! Phil laments about weak beer and mowin' his pastures. He tends to make mountains out of mole hills... or maybe that's wombat holes... A good lawn mower beer should be very high in alcohol... when combined with the glaring rays of the sun... it helps one forget the dreary task of mowin' the lawn. Return to table of contents
Date: Sat, 15 Jan 2005 23:33:51 -0500 From: Alexandre Enkerli <aenkerli at indiana.edu> Subject: Mielgard's Sulfitic, Aromas/Flavours Well, "mielgard sulfitic" (no quotes, of course), turned up only one result (AJ's message). [Even if it does count, there will be a second result now...] Sooo... Assuming it's a typo, what's the actual reference? (AJ: private email's good.) As it seems to be on aromas and/or flavours, I might be interested for academic reasons. Other people have references on aromas and/or flavours? It doesn't need to be beer-specific. Thanks!
