I just noticed that no one posted anything on st paddys day. Good job everyone way to NOT be on your computer on such a festive day. Ever overhear the classic "Those Europeans drink their beer warm." Well guess what? Most serve it at cellar temperature so you can actually taste it

I offered a buddy one of my Kilkenny Ales and he said, "No thanks. I don't like dark beers." You could read a newspaper through that beautifully clear amber brew. I told him not to grab one of my chocolate stouts.

I heard this on NPR the other day. The story was titled "Craft Beers Slowly Chipping Away at Big Beers Dominance" and it was a pretty good piece. But just 45 seconds into the opening, she says "Beer- we drink enough fermented hops to consume more than 200 Billion dollars annually"

That brings up a question. If you dry hop, will you not technically have hops that have begun to ferment?

do hops have fermentable sugars?

Honest truth? I have no idea. If you can ferment cabbage it doesnt seem totally out of the bounds of reason that you could ferment hops.

Was talking with a guy I just met and found out he considered himself a bit of a beer snob. When we got around to discussing styles of beer that we like I said that I enjoyed Milk Stouts over Dry Stouts. His response was that he had never tried a Milk Stout, that he had wanted to, but on the last brewery tour he went on they got there too late and the milk stout wasn't available because it had spoiled due to having a lot of milk in it.
