Fermentation, that is. I came home from work and saw my latest batch going nuts, and it made me smile big. I still get giddy after all these years when I see this: (Oh, and I need to stop using star-san in my airlock)



(click for vid, I new at this)

Give it a name in Gaelic that means about the same thing... Or use the Gaelic word for 'foaming'...

BTW, I think that video qualifies as a "beer porno"

Indeed. I was kicking myself for not making her a porter. It would have been Post-Partem-Porter.

Sure you couldn't just call it a porter? Or is the stout obviously a STOUT? You could just dial it back a couple of centuries before stouts were around, for the name at least... Unless the people drinking it KNOW it's a stout, how can they say it's not a porter?

Good point. To a beer geek, it is definitely a stout. The malt bill is MO and roasted barley. That's it. No beer aficionado with any accreditation would call it a porter, but I doubt she'd know. Hmm...

Label her bottles 'porter' and the rest 'stout'... Are any other beer geeks, or aficionado's going to be drinking it? If not, then I say F it and call it a porter... Depending on how dark it is, could be a brown porter variant...

Besides, you brewed it, not them, so F them if they don't like what you're calling it, it will still be good brew.

I like the way you think, sir. I'm giving her a case in bottles (she believes in one beer per day while nursing, so that's almost a month supply), and rest will be on tap in garage. I suppose I can call it whatever I want, and if for some reason I enter in a comp I'll call it stout.

Sounds like a win-win-win situation to me (no ties to Charlie Sheen)...

Now, does she believe in the small (kiddie sized) 12oz/375ml bottles, the (teen-ager)16oz/500ml bottles, or the (adult sized) 24oz/750ml bottles??

Happy to say, I don't use any of the kiddie sized bottles for my brew... If you can't drink a pint on your own, then have someone to split it with. Otherwise, you're going to have to drink the pint.
