I believe DFH uses Warrior hops. I just oredered a pound.


I liked the Boddingtons' pub ale when I had it. Good session beer. A little boring, but not skunked or nasty.

p.s. ive been looking for the 120 also, i figure here in VA we'll get 'em pretty quick. At 'total wine' they have a spot for them, but its just an empty shelve, i asked the oh-so-helpfull-clerk if they had it and she said, "whatever is on the shelve is what we have". (duh!)...Have you tried the 'raisen d'etre'?
I think the people at the Total Wine here in Richmond are a bit more with it than those at your Total Wine. The guy I asked checked his computer, said it had been ordered but they haven't received any yet.
I liked the Raisen D'Etre, it was different but in a good way. I haven't had the Raisen D'Extra yet.

The first Raison d 'etre I had was great. It was a funky sour taste that really hit the spot. The second (and the way I think it should be) was sweet, thick and not so good.

I was about to ask her about the 'golden shower' but thought otherwise...

while i was there some dudes were returning a keg, and i overheard her talk about the 25 dollar deposit, and she said thats all the suppliers charge them for a keg. I always heard people talk about how its immoral to get a keg by simply not returning it, and forego the 25 bucks, cuz they are worth like 90 dollars to the store. but she said that they only pay 25 bucks for a keg. That cant be right can it?

Nothing but Warrior for the full 60, 90, or 120 minutes?

No I think they use a blend of a few different ones, but Warrior are prominent in the IPAs.

Finally got around to the Titan IPA. Pretty good. Close to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in flavor, typical IPA. Didn't blow me away. the wineer of the battle was definitely Avery. I need to get more of that.

I was doing beer maintenance tonight and was searching the beer closet for inventory of bottled brews, and I found a bottle of HOP ROD RYE!!!! I'm saving that baby for the next brew day. Hopefully that will be tomorrow if all goes right. I am supposed to work but the shift is prolly gonna get changed to Tuesday. So, in preparation for a brew day soon, I made a starter tonight. I also placed an order for the next batch, so it is here when it comes time to rack the Pub Ale over, and I'm pitching on the cake.

I'm brewing a treat cloner of a beer that my buddy loves. He is coming back from the desert in early June so it should be just about ready for him when he gets back. Anyone ever had Old Leghumper? It is a GREAT porter.

I'm not sure about VA but in PA a keg cost the distributers 10 bucks. Deposits are 10 bucks. I live next to a owner of distributer and needless to say I have an endless supply of kegs at my disposal at 10 bucks a pop! If ya know anyone in PA tell them to get you some kegs for 10 bucks. Now back to your regularly scheduled thread. Sorry.

If you don't care about the condition of the keg you could go that route. I've certainly thought about it but I don't have the means to cut it.

Then there's the whole morality issue. (just don't tell BrewPastor!)
