If memory serves me correctly, the recipe used in Guinness - malt, flaked barley, roast barley, etc... came about (the extensive use of flake that is...) because of a government tax on malt in the early part of the 20th century(?). I read it in either Dave Lines book, or the CAMRA recipe book. It does sound like a bit of B.S. on the part of a PR man, who probably drinks white wine and soda as his regular tipple!!! Regards Rob.

Though I would also normally be reluctant to post non-beer items in this list, as Rick notes these are not noral times. One of the biggest needs that I have identified here in our community is the need to help fight against an irrational backlash against Arab Americans and Arab Canadians (and Arabs in other parts of the world). Already the newspapers in Canada are filling up with stories of young arab kids being beaten up in school, mosques being firebombed and so on. I urge you all to read the following from the Washington Post, and to pass it along to anyone and everyone whose email address you have. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A21488-2001Sep12.html Here in Ottawa I am going to go over to our local mosque just to talk with people and let them know that not all Canadians are so bigoted and heartless. Since muslims do not drink, I do not think it is wise to bring some homebrew, but a batch of chocolate chip cookies might be appropriate. Our mayor in Ottawa is organising a rally in support of arabs in our community. Here in Ottawa, English is the first language, then French, then arab. Perhaps you should contact your mayor and ask for something similar to be organised. Tell all your friends and family. If they have trouble understanding, it is easy to draw a parallel with Ireland. Catholics and Protestants there commit horrific acts of terror against each other, but this does not mean that all Catholics, all Protestants or indeed all Christians are like this. We are all angry and outraged, but lashing out senselessly is no solution. Let us not repeat the mistakes made against the Japanese Canadians and Americans in WW2. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to ensure this does not happen. God/Ala/whoever bless, -Alan - -- "Brewers make wort.

I just got my order from germandeli.com. I ordered both syrups for Berliner Weisse I plan to bottle tonight. I am very pleased with the service and packaging--NAJASCYYY. They were out of stock on the syrups for a while, but I can attest they are now available. Go to http://www.germandeli.com and then to "Groceries" then "Aisle 2" then "Fruits & Syrups". Knock yourself out. I would like some ideas on how much syrup to add too and when. I assume the syrup would go in the glass first and then the beer poured on top of it to self mix. Be strong. Rick Foote Whistle Pig Brewing Murrayville, GA Would anyone be able to tell me where I might find woodruff syrup (or essence of woodruff) & raspberry syrup?

No, a reciprocating saw has a more powerful motor and a larger blade. They are commonly called "sawzall" after a particular brand name.

Jay, I did considerable research on this subject last summer. Woodruff (waldmeister) syrup is now available in this country thanks to the diligent efforts of Gina at the online company, Germandeli.com. The raspberry (himbeer) syrup is also available there too. I can tell you from experience that the German and Czech raspberry syrups are superior to the domestic ones I've tried. When you go to their site, make sure you search by the German names, "waldmeister" and "himbeer". http://www.germandeli.com/ In regard to your question of how much syrup to add, it's the same answer to the silly question "how much cream and sugar should you add to your coffee?" It's totally up to you. Some folks like berliner weiss without anything added. Others like it sweetened up until it tastes like a wine cooler. When you order from them, please drop a note to Gina thanking her for the extraordinary effort she made to import the waldmeister syrup. I contacted dozens of vendors last year, and she was the only one that took an interest in becoming a permanent source of this hard-to-find item. Don Lake Return to table of contents

George makes a good point. I'd refrain from taking it as a carry-on luggage item for quite some time - especially if the bottles are unlabeled. I wouldn't blame anyone telling me "no". On the other hand, while I won't be doing much flying in the near future, if I had to, I'd rather do it with beer. BTW, I'll be brewing a Classic AMERICAN Pilsner this weekend if anyone wants to join me. Glen A.

Date: Fri, 14 Sep 2001 12:28:35 -0500 From: "Mark Kellums" <infidel at springnet1.com> Subject: Results of permethrin on Japaneese beetles Hello, Sorry for the lateness of this post concerning the effects of permethrin on Japanese beetles. I haven't seen any beetles around since late in July. The permethrin did a very good job overall. It acted as a very good repellant as well as a very good contact killer. I applied the permethrin in a couple of different ways. First I used a plastic squirt bottle. This worked but it was very wasteful and left large piles of permethrin in some spots. I also tried a pump up duster but it wasn't all that effective either. I couldn't get a very good cloud of dust from it. PITA. I finally ended up mixing up the permethrin with water and applying it through a hose sprayer. That worked ok, you have to keep the solution shaken to suspend the permethrin in the water. There was also a crank up type duster at Lowes but I didn't feel like shelling out the $30 for it. The only real drawback to using the permethrin that I can see is that it kills most all of the insects on your plants. Including the ones that prey on spider mites. So, I had a bit of a run in with the mites for a few weeks after the beetles. Overall the permethrin worked very well. Hope this helps........ next season.

Why, in logical terms, should I not pitch the yeast from a Smoked (Robust) Porter with an O.G. of 1.065 to a Pale Ale with an anticipated O.G. of 1.054? Thanks, Cas Return to table of contents
