Dry country? That sounds terrible.

Glad you're enjoying it too - it's a hoot for me.

Thanks for your service - here's hoping you get home to the hooch soon.

P.S. I love the sepia like aging on all your photos.
Thanks - glad you like it. Ain't no stoppin' me now.

The sepia tones are courtesy of the Hipstomatic App for the iPhone. Nifty little program - it's almost like having a 110 or 126 camera again.

I thought that was a typo when you kegged it. So what is a pumpthin ale? Is that like a bud light or miller 64?

I don't like Pumpkin Beers. The over the top spices taste like perfume to me - absolutely hate them. I tried Southern Tier's Pumking a couple of weeks ago (An IMPERIAL Pumpkin Ale) and it was just about the worst beer I've ever forced down my gullet.

So I made my own version of a Pumpkin Ale and thinned out the pumpkin and spice flavors. Ended up with a nice ale with that great pumpkin color but just a hint of pumpkin flavor and a really light spice foot-print - A Pump'thin' Ale. I like it a lot.

That to me is one of the great things about homebrewing. You can emphasize what you like and de-emphasize what you don't. You can make exactly the beer you want to drink - amazing concept huh?
