GloHoppa said:So I got my ingredients kit today for a Bass Ale Clone from Midwest homebrew. Is it just me or would it be really anti Saint Paddies if I brewed it for then?
You have to pre-plan and brew BEFORE it's supposed to be ready...GloHoppa said:This is slightly but is anyone going to be brewing any Bocks right now for the Lenten season since that is the time they were brewed for, historically speaking?
homebrewer_99 said:Apparently, something you're not familiar with...
GloHoppa said:yeah yeah, i pre plan by looking through the midwest catalog and fantasizing about having money to buy a kit the joys of being in college...

cd2448 said:a couple of years back we researched getting a keg of Guinness for a party - ended up with 5 cases of the draft cans. nectar. now it's homebrew all the way - brewing up a stout for paddies day, sure it won't have the same characteristics as the Guinness just coming from my bottles, but it will be mine!

"Oh you're Irish, my great grand-fathers cousin was Irish, do you know the Murphy's of Cork?"
rmck1 said:Cd2448 thanks for acknowledging that it'll be a stout not a Guinness clone. For one thing even Guinness draft cans and bottles are packed with a widget. You know that little plastic ball that was in your cans? That was full of the N2 / CO2 mix used in pubs over here.
