    Duchy Originals Organic Old Ruby Ale 1905

    Has anyone tried or even seen Duchy Originals Organic Old Ruby Ale 1905 before? It is a very tasty brew. My wife works at the liquor store here and when they get new beers in, she always grabs a bottle or two for me. Doing some research, and it is brewed by Wychwood. Anyone have any...

    Cheers: An Intemperate History of Beer in Canada

    "Cheers: An Intemperate History of Beer in Canada" is a great book. I just finished reading it. It covers everything from how beer came to Canada, to prohibition, to corporate takeovers, to craft brews and homebrews. The guy even goes on a beer mission across Canada, covering Halifax, St...

    VERY slow fermentation...

    So I brewed an IPA on New Years Eve, it was at around 1.060 +/- 0.002. After 2 days, lots of activity, the beer was churning, lots of Krausen. I checked the Gravity at day 5 and it was at 1.063. I am assuming I never mixed my wort up enough when I took my OG even though I stirred and sloshed a...

    Can't get a rolling boil today!

    Damn stove, can't even get a 3 gallon partial boil to a rolling boil. Stupid Stove. Switched to hot plate, it has gone up 20 since then, but still not enough. This is not my day. Almost been an hour and a half trying to get a boil. I bet I can cool it in record time today though. -25...

    Job Interview Monday

    I have an interview for a new job on Monday, I haven't been so nervous before in my life. I currently have a great job, but I applied for my Team Leader's position. I can't wait, but I am really nervous. I know they short listed the candidates to 16 people, so I have a 1 in 16 chance of...

    Dogfish Head60 Minute IPA consistency issues

    I was on a mini vacation to Ontario Canada and picked up my first 6 pack of Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA. So far, out of the 4 beer I have drank, I loved 2 and wasn't fussy about the other 2. Is this just me or does anyone else notice a difference between individual bottles? I am wondering if...

    Does anyone have an English Bulldog???

    I got one, she is 7 months old and she is the gassiest dog ever. She farts more than anything or anyone ever. We have changed her food, and it has no effect. Good thing she is cute!

    A good place in Ottawa to get good beer.

    I am heading to Ottawa next month to have a weekend of drunken debauchery downtown with the SWMBO. Is there any bars in the market or close that would have some beer on tap that isn't brewed by Labatt's or Molson?

    I visited an abandoned camp site....

    A couple weeks back I was at my parents cottage and was wandering through the woods when I hit an abandoned campsite. It apparently was a religious camp for troubled teens or something. A guy bought the rights to the land and buildings a few years back, but got diagnosed with cancer and never...

    IPA Recipe Critique

    I have never tasted an IPA (with the exception of Keiths, which tastes like regular commercial beer IMO) and want to try brewing one. I have looked at a bunch of recipes, and I am trying to come up with my own recipe (my first ever recipe) Keep in mind, I am a noob. Any suggestions for hop...
