---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 15 Feb 2005 07:57:16 -0600 From: "Ed Howell" <edhoel at hal-pc.org> Subject: Beer in Paris I will be going to Paris next week and was wondering if anyone in this group knows of a good place that has a good selection of Belgian beers. I would like to be able to bring a few back that are not available in the States. Also, are there any brew pubs worth visiting?

I have a bruheat but I think the controller died today...I tried the reset switch, nothing..It just stopped in the middle of a boil :-(" I've been using a BruHeat at the shop here for over twenty years and have gone through God knows how many thermostats and elements. The last replacements I got were from Grape & Granary in Ohio (http://www.grapeandgranary.com/). We used to retail these ourselves, but our source dried up. BTW try wedging a penny (yeah, even a Canadian penny, eh?) between the thermostat backing and the plastic pail. This has helped us tremendously. Fewer cut-outs.

Date: Wed, 16 Feb 2005 18:23:20 -0500 From: leavitdg at plattsburgh.edu Subject: An idea: Dealing with a sour lambic ? Hey guys; (and women); I just sampled a Belgian/Flanders sort of ale, and detected a touch of lambic like flavor. I am not sure which bacteria or yeast contributes this sour taste (acidopholus/?), but I had an idea. Suppose one brewed a real sour lambic. Then suppose one kegged/ pigged said lambic. Then suppose one poured a brown ale...12 oz or more, and just mixed 1-2 oz of the sour lambic at serving time? Voila! A Flanders!?? Please excuse the naivete re: Flanders and Lambics, but I believe that I can both re-create the flavors that I just tasted in a "Flamy Dark Ale: Urthel Bock" in this fashion, and also save the sour lambic as well? Any thoughts on mixing at the time of serving? ..Darrell Return to table of contents

America's Finest City Homebrew Competition: http://www.quaff.org/AFC2005/AFCHBC.html Same judges as First Round Nationals; figure out where to place those hard to place brews. Mugs, T-shirts, White Labs certificates, The super-cool Palmer Pocket 'Puter, ... (not to mention good feedback on your brew).... Thanks to all the HBD'ers (and there are many of you) who have sent entries this year and in the past; it is always a pleasure to judge so many fine beers!

Date: Thu, 17 Feb 2005 20:38:05 -0800 From: David Radwin <dradwin at sbcglobal.net> Subject: Beer & cheese (link of the day?) I suppose this isn't about homebrewing per se, but there was an interesting article today about pairing beer and cheese in the SF Chronicle's wine section. (Yes, a while back our local paper decided that the most important topic upon which to expand coverage was . . . wine. All the same, I have to say I do read it.) Sample suggestion: <>"With: Humboldt Fog and other goat cheeses with a little age Try: A Belgian-style saison such as Ommegang Hennepin or Saison Dupont." Anyway, it's at http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2005/02/17/WIGHKBA1OC1.DTL . It also mentions my favorite logical combo: Chimay beer and Chimay cheese.

Date: Sun, 20 Feb 2005 20:23:53 +0000 From: bob.devine at att.net Subject: link of the week - Presidents and beer In the US, Monday is Presidents Day. A spirit of prohibition is still strong in the US. Alan Cranston introduced the bill to allow homebrewing a quarter century ago and Carter, president who signed it, was condemned in many parts. Current Pres Bush is now a teetotaller but does drink non-alcohol beers. George Washington and beer. Includes a link for his recipe. http://www.beerhistory.com/library/holdings/washingtonbeerlover.shtml http://www.nypl.org/research/chss/spe/rbk/gwbeer.html Third president, Thomas Jefferson http://www.monticello.org/reports/life/beer.html Abraham Lincoln, 16th President, observed that "It has long been recognized that the problems with alcohol relate not to the use of a bad thing, but to the abuse of a good thing." A guide to presidents and their drinks (not just beer) http://www.palmbeachpost.com/food/content/ food_dining/epaper/2005/02/17/a2fn_wine_col_0217.html Has any other country had as many brewers among its politicians? Okay, maybe Germany or Austria. Bob Devine in Utah Return to table of contents
