Just found a link to this video of the brewers at Dogfish Head making Chica Beer.

Thought it was pretty cool.

Man...I thought it was an April fools joke, by them, but evidently not according to the NY Times.

Wow.....Just wow.....

I'm so glad we boil things, eh?

Anyone in for a Group spit...er I mean brew?

Yeah. I don't see that one flying off the shelves.

I don't care how long they boil it. I can't even bring myself to drink from a soda bottle my son has gotten hold of. Too much backwash and I know what goes into his mouth.

Too bad it didn't turn out well. My BA is in anthro and would love to try this at some point. If you read the full NYT article it also looks like DR. McGovern has a book coming out "Uncorking the Past" Definitely adding that to my Christmas list....


ETA: Just looked the book up on Amazon and he's using my avatar as the cover.

But this is Sam Caligone's backwash, and he's so dreamy.

LOL

This is out there, even for me. Still I have nothing but the utmost respect for Sam as he is willing to try anything.

I love most everything Dogfishhead sells and champions. I have enjoyed getting people jazzed about my favorite DFH beer: raison d'etre. I even like Sam's extreme brewing book and use it as a ready reference.

But chicha is where I draw the line. I don't spit in my own beer, and I expect other people to not spit in my beer either. Call me small minded, but at least it's my own mind.

Oh, I also won't drink the coffee from the 'rare and precious' beans that are eaten, digested, and pooped out by cat-like animals in some god-awful part of the world. Blech.

I feel ya on not wanting Sam's spit in your beer but, not drinking the Kopi Luwak is just blasphemous.
