---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 23 Feb 2005 21:59:59 -0600 From: "Mike Heniff" <m.heniff at earthlink.net> Subject: New Japanese Non-beer I recently had Sapporo Draft One in Tokyo. I found it to be an average American lager, no so unlike MGD but it certainly didn't seem like it wasn't really beer. But, 90% of the beers that I saw available were golden lagers. Also, a number of alcoholic beverages that I picked up at the local convenience store turned out to be vodka or rum flavored drinks (of course, the cans (which is what just about all of their alcoholic beverages are sold in) were in all Japanese). Luckily, I quickly learned that almost all of the beer cans had the beer name in English (go figure!). Mike Heniff Foam Rangers Houston, TX Return to table of contents

This fits in very well with what I've been doing with Groggy Ale (http://www.lemis.com/grog/brewing/groggy-ale.html). There I'm brewing an ale with British yeasts and German malt and hops. I'd suggest that you look at some of Weyermann's products (http://www.weyermann.de/deutsch/produkte_home.neo?headline=Unsere%20Produkte). >From a colour point of view pale ale malt looks like a darker M&uuml;nchner malt (sorry, not allowed to use German characters on this forum). I'd guess that that would come close enough. You'll have more trouble finding the crystal malt that the British like; I don't like it, and I use things like Caraaroma and Caram&uuml;nch instead, but the taste isn't the same. If you really want to use British malts, why can't you get them via mail order? Greg - -- Finger grog at lemis.com for PGP public key. See complete headers for address and phone numbers.

Date: Thu, 24 Feb 2005 07:48:35 -0500 From: "Neil Kushnir" <neilk27 at hotmail.com> Subject: "No Hose Barb" site William Menzl asked about a website that preached the benefit of QDs versus hose barbs. I too once visited this site and found it rather easily through Google. Here's the link: http://sdcollins.home.mindspring.com/ There's a really cute animation of a guy walking up to a hose barb, dropping his pants and "recycling" beer over the barb.

Date: Thu, 24 Feb 2005 11:30:10 -0600 From: "Eric R. Theiner" <rickdude at tds.net> Subject: Help with Electric System Hail Brewdudes (and dudettes), I'm finally getting to the point where I can put my new brewing space/system together. (Going from a dedicated 14x20 shed to a 10x10 corner in the wife's laundry room is a lot tougher than I thought!) Because I'm in WI now, I figure I'll be doing my brewing inside... and I don't want to mess with gas. So it's electric. (Actually, I've wanted to ge electric for quite some time, but now there's a reason.) I'm going to use water heater elements of the "screw-in" variety to provide heat, but I'm not sure how to put them into the boiler and HLT. I was thinking I would put together bulkheads, but I can't find anything that matches the 1 3/8" thread of the elements. Am I not looking hard enough? Or is there a better method that someone can think of? And any other thoughts that anyone has would be appreciated. I'm patterning my system after Ron LaBorde's, so if anyone has experience with doing that, it would be helpful if I could get time/effort saving ideas. Thanks!

While not widely traveled in the MSP area, I did happen upon a wonderful, very small establishment called Barley John's located in New Brighton: http://www.barleyjohns.com/ Their Minnesota Wild Rice Brown and Imperial Stout on tap at the time both stood out, and the food was also quite enjoyable as I recall (this was 2 years and dozens of brewpubs ago, and I still remember the place fondly). They had several interesting selections on tap available; about as far outside the mainstream Rock Bottom type brewpub as you'll ever find. I would certainly go out of my way to visit them again. Cheers! John (no - not as in "Barley" - not associated, and all that stuff.) Return to table of contents
Date: Thu, 24 Feb 2005 12:38:40 -0800 (PST) From: John Wyzkiewicz <j_wyzkiewicz at yahoo.com> Subject: RE: Minneapolis Brewpub Recommendations? I would not miss the following: Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery 1430 Washington Ave. S., Minneapolis 612-339-8696 http://www.townhallbrewery.com/ Masala Mama IPA is tasty, and they won 3 silver at GABF this year...good seasonals right now: Single Malt (made with a single malt, I've had it, it's interesting), Ruby Mild and Big Dog Double IPA (hop additions every ten minutes during the boil) The Single Malt and Masala are additionally on cask. If you can get over to St. Paul try: The Great Waters Brew Pub 426 St. Peter St., St. Paul 612-224-2739 http://greatwatersbc.com/index.html Nice selection, many on cask...Try the Old Bastard, I had it in Chicago at the Real Ale Festival and it was quite good. On the fringes of town: Barley John's Brewpub 781 Old Hwy 8 SW New Brighton, Minnesota, 55112 phone: (651) 636-4670 http://www.barleyjohns.com/ Small place with a big patio outside with a fire, interesting beers, they currently have Rosie's on tap. Believed to be one the strongest beers in MN, weighing in at 20%, it's $9 a 3-4 oz shot (almost literally), definately worth trying even although a bit pricey. Enjoy... Return to table of contents
