Since taking up homebrewing, the conquest for the better beer has begun. Normally the trip to the store entailed a 6er of Sammy Adams (possibly one of the seasonals to experiment) and that was that. Now when I go to the store, I try to look along the lines of what I LIKE and what I might want to brew in the future. Not realizing how much of a beer virgin I am, I have taken the crash course in beer styles and kind of found what I enjoy and what is just nasty (to me)

Except the elusive barley wine. I still havent stumbled across a BW yet, but Im obviously curious as my dream last night revolved around getting one (and strangely enough) a post from here was the basis of it. I found myself in an ABC store asking the clerk if they had any barleywines available. She proceeded to tell me that I was in luck as they were no longer regulated by the ABC but they still had a couple left.

The BW in my dream was a 40oz bottle of a hot pink liquid (rather reminiscent of that red banana MD20/20 that had me hanging onto the bathroom floor back in the Navy days)

Now Im going to have to get a bottle just to verify 'it was all just a dream'

joe... ahh man were you drinking any Apfelwein before this?? or perhaps useing shrooms??... I had a BW once, a comerical one i think, i dont remember the name but my uncle gave it to me one fourth and said "here drink this it will make you feel like a man"... he was joking, it make me feel like i had to pee... but i remember it having a pleasent balance and a decent kick... maybe it was one of his HB BW's i have yet to ask him if he brewed it all these years later... but it was good i remeber... i remember watching the fireworks on my thrid bottle and thinking..."ohhh pretty colors"

cheers

Both...
Once upon a time I earned my fungi thumb and know entirely too much about mushrooms.
And yes, the Apfelwein kicked my ass as well. Although I think I might make up another batch of it for others. Its not exactly a fav of mine, but I think it will being people back. (And keep the SWMBO off of my arse from time to time.)

LOL I just reread your post and gathered what you were saying!

Fortunately (or unfortunately) this is just how my brain works.
I get that sort of question quite often from others.

Welcome Joe - seems like you're in the same boat I am. I posted a very similar thread awhile ago!

I love this hobby
