Sure, if you're using modern-day well modified mayonnaise, it's not absolutely necessary, but if you do decoction mashing, those Maillard reactions give you subtle mayo flavors that are unachievable by any other method.

You guys are all off base. If you want that traditional mayo flavor it's necessary to do a triple decoction mash. Otherwise you won't get the mayoiest notes out of it.

The funniest thing I heard about mayo was some dumb guy a the local Kraft Beer bar telling me mayo was invented in county Mayo, Ireland. Wrong, it was invented in Mayonnaise in Alsace.

I know a guy who owns a small brewery, and they self distribute. A couple times, when they were able to take an account away from a distributer at a bar, the distributer would smear mayo inside the keg connection to my buddies kegs to make his beer taste rancid. That's how evil and vindictive the distributors are these days.

Has anyone on here ever made cock ale? I've been wondering that ever since I heard about it.

Things got a whole lot funnier these last few pages

Starting, for me, with the Monty Python skit and then this next comment had me chuckling away to myself

Oh look! A new direction!

Mrs McDinsky: Beer goggles is real, dawg.
Me: Of course they are but flushots are too.
Sam: Don't. Please, don't.
Me: Recite the passages. Dispel the evil. Save my soul... And your own lives!
