DANGEROUS POST: This could be a little ribbing, yet I am a professional historian and provocation of thought is our way.



Somehow I find the name of this beer somewhat troubling. How is it that we've romanticized a device that cuts the heads off of millions of Catholics and Jews way back in Franco-Atheist Revolution of 1789?

I wonder if I could get away with naming a commercial beer Dauchau Priestblock Pale Ale, or Nagasaki Mushroom Cloud Malt Bomb, or Native American Red Malt Liquor.


Strangely enough I find it odd that Terrapin and Guillotine are paired up here as these fresh-water turtles, for fear of their lives, tuck their heads into their shells in order keep them from getting hacked off by what have you.


--- Good looking beer though.

Just to be sure here, there is no bittering addition aside from the FWH addition? Then the rest is 15 and less?

The beer that I was cloning has a guillotine on the label so thats where I got the name from.

Yes. I was trying to get that hop bursting affect by adding a FWH and then all the other additions at 15 minutes or less.

Thank you for your concern. Fortunately, I am already light hearted... but it is an observation nonetheless; an observation made over good ale. Our duties do not stop with the pint glass.

The beer itself sounds great and am looking forward to the more.

These names arent trademarked or copyrighted are they? I just named my scotch ale and now need to brew a red!!!!

Jk... maybe

But they are funny names. I agree lighten up.

Hello all, I am wondering if someone here with experience with this sort of thing could take a stab at an extract conversion of this recipe. This is SWMBO's favorite IPA, so this would go a long way towards facilitating future equipment upgrade requests! =]
