I have a good friend who made all kinds of bootleg wine while he was deployed. Said some of it was actually tollerable. Good luck over there.

Thank you for your service. Stay safe over there. You'll have a great lineup of brews waiting for you when you get back!

Al Udeid. My mistake, I didn't realize that Qatar was a different country.

Hey I've been over there myself and I know alcohol is not allowed but....
If you or someone happens to post your address over there who knows what random things people might happen to send to said address with no return address or a fake return address on the label. Either in a delicious IPA format or in a more subtle vodka in a water bottle or just snacks from the states. All I'm saying is from someone who has been there is that it might be worth your while to let us know once you have such info. Because brewing out of your locker over there sucks and will not turn out as planned.(trust me on this)

Yeah, it's going to be easy street over there compared to how most people have it. Plus, as an NCO I get my own room.

But yeah, it'll be hot as hell. It'll be even worse because most of what I do is around running aircraft engines.

You'll get your beer there. I was there for a couple days on my first tour for R&R.

Pretty cushy spot compared to most. It'll be hotter than hell, but having your own room will be great. Just bank all that extra pay. You'll be suprised how much money you can save if you don't spend it on dumb stuff.

I may see you in Al Udeid on my way over to the sandbox, Going in Aug. I think I will try a 6 month aged beer too. I would not have if not for your post. Good luck with all those beers.

Yeah, if you see the B-1B bombers, look for the guy supervising the bomb loading.

Just a quick update for this week: I ordered the AHS Robust Porter this morning, and I'll be brewing it as soon as it comes in. I'll be using the White Labs WLP023 Burton Ale yeast. My plan is to brew the aged beer first, rack it to secondary, wash the yeast, then repitch that with the second batch. Money's a bit tight right now, so I can't just brew everything all at once.

Edited: I really wish I could change the name of this thread. After realizing that Al Udeid isn't in Iraq, I feel like a dolt every time I see it.
