I'm not sure, but that might have hurt my feeling.

Maybe I'll go find another thread to express my level of distress over the Buffalo Bills Hot Wings scandal.

Well, we actually call bacon the same way you guys do. That ham stuff is called "back bacon", and a very delicious version of it that's brined (practically pickled) and rolled in cornmeal is called "peameal bacon". Yum. But when you ask for bacon here, you get the same strips of meat you'd get if you asked for bacon in the US.

Also, I hate CR and CC whiskey with a passion, though there are some much smaller distilleries that make decent stuff. And Unibrow's Trois Pistoles is what turned me on to craft beer as my first legal beer purchase after turning 19 |:-)

Hopping with gators is tricky in that since they haven't evolved as much over the last 300,000 years as turtles have, their enzymes don't break down in a turtle stout. For this to work correctly you need to add LGA. DGA is also available, but I find that 16 oz of LGA per pound of gator works well and is conveniently available.

Hey, I knew you'd respond. I was just poking a little fun. I actually hope one day to make it to Canada. Years ago I halfway planned a trip to Canada, but then I ended up getting married and life kinda got in the way. But one day I'll make it there.

The only thing I don't like about DGE is how it gets all in your arm hairs when stirring into your kettle.
Sticky arm hair sucks DD.

Dried turtle makes a wonderful addition to my brown turtle stew ale

The good thing about dry hoppng with a croc is that the loss of beer per absorption is a lot less than if you dry hop with hamsters for instance. And the fact that a croc can survive in water-like ambient ends up saving you some buck in the long run. I donīt know about you guys but Iīm tired of spending a lot of money in hamsters in every batch of beer I make, after a couple of hours hamsters sink to the bottom and die, or in other words they die and then sink to the bottom (yes hamster corpses donīt float in beer). Efforts trying to harvest dead hamsters and bring them back to life have been widely studied by professor Frankestein with some success but with many negative side effects like been chased by an angry mob carrying torches. So yes dry hop with crocs I know is quite an investment to make but I prefer spending some money now and forget about it.
A non so expensive option is to go with turtles but of course there is always the chance that the turtle runs away with your wife. If you are tired of your wife get a turtle if you hate your wife get a croc and make her help you brew.
Ahhhh brewing! gives the chance to do one of the things that I enjoy the most: mistreating wildlife.!!!

Exactly. That's why I've always said that hamster reanimation is a waste of time and money. And who wants to take the risk of being attacked hordes of angry birds? Canadian bacon, American bacon, it's all the same to a pig stealing eggs...at least in the end.

Your LHBS doesn't sell SCUBA equipment for the hamsters? Or at the very least snorkels and floaties? Believe me I almost exclusively dry croc, but hamsters can add some complexity that only a hairy rodent can provide.

Quite right. And now you know why I named my brewery Hamsterbite.
