  • Barley Pops

    So this is where we can post the best of the brew. I don't know of a good winter ale or lager but maybe you guys do. I use to know a guy in my old Guard unit that brewed his own. That was some of the best beer I ever had. So let this be our place to give good toast and make good memories. What is YOUR best brew?

    Cheers!

      not to many choices for local brew and Mississippi limits the strength of the beer you can buy here.

      I enjoy the Lazy Magnolia Jefferson Stout ...

      reminds me of a home brew my buddy used to do[]

      when I am in LA i try to bring back some of abita's abby ale, be carefull, this stuff kicks like wine!

      In the late summer/early fall the Abita strawberry ale, when you can find it.

      maybe we could have a "beer swap party" at the funament? have everyone who wants to drag along a 12 pack or case of their favorite local brew and swap for a mix from other folks? what do y'all think?

        Well...this time of year going from house to house with Holiday visits I tend to follow the Allen lead... drink whatever I can get my hands on at each house [][]. At the get together this afternoon if not something stronger than beer I bet I'll be able to find some Yuengling [8D].

          I make around 40 to 65 gallons (of Beer, another 15 to 20 gals or so of Wine and then...well something stronger) a year depending on what's going on. I usually have around 300 or so empty 22oz bottles washed and waiting at any one time. The wife hates it. SHe don't hate drinking it though.... Swaping and trading with friends is what I like most. I think I have posted pics of some of them before.

          I also give them out at my company annual dinner...here's a couple on the podium. [8D]



          Beer? This time of year I make:

          Octoberfest-- nuty brown w/ Special B grain. Nice and smooth.

          Oatmeal Stout []



          Oatmeal Stout--don't let the name scare ya. Brown, nearly black. Waxing mouth, sweet and smooth as well.

          Spring time brings these:

          Marzen--a little stronger hop, Not as dark as Octoberfest but very good

          German Pilsner--golden clear pilsner that will kick your butt on a warm spring day. Very drinkable for the first timers

          Summer--Golden Heffewiezen. Wheat beer. Sweet mouth, smooth finish. Another sleeper on a hot day.

          ESB--Nutty brown Ale w/ strong hop finish. Very good on a camping trip around the fire.

          It was busy around here so I made a Pilsner last month. Just bottled a week or so ago...



          Wine? I didn't make any this year. Got 35gal or so in cold storage getting ready from last year.

          Syrah--Lodi area. Dry farmed, organic.

          Merlot--Suisun region.

          Barbera--Loomis foothills. Great for blending. Micro farm, wierd people, great grapes.

          Tempranillo--Amador region. Great table wine.











          The "something stronger"....

            that stout looks pretty darn good, it's hard to beat a good home brew. I have threatened to try it one day but i always seem to have to many irons in the fire[]

            not to derail but how much time do you think you have in each batch?

              In beer....it takes a 13gal kettle around 3 hrs from start to finish. Then you cool the wort and pitch the yeast. The fermentation time varies with each type of yeast/brew your doing. For instance, an Oatmeal Stout ferments out at 2 1/2 weeks where as the Pilsner takes 5 weeks. It all depends on the yeast and brew.

              After it fermented, it's filtered, (unless its a Wheat Heffewiezen), and either kegged or bottled.

              Then drink up [] I'll be honest with you, I give more away than I drink for sure. It's fun to convert Bud Light/Coors Light drinkers [][][]

              I can post some recipes if anyone wants it.

                  I don't think you could do that down here, if you converted us you'd have to quit your day job to keep us stocked [][].

                      Greg that beer looks fantastic. I am with Leo tho, with a project list that never seems to end, Im not sure it would be wise for me to get into it. I have thought about it many times. With the costs of todays premium beers it might even be advantagous finacially?

                      In any case, bring me some of that when you come to Destin!

                        Yeah what the heck, if someone would pay me to brew....I'd be on it like a chicken on a june bug.

                          Thats funny Dave, we have to know our limitations! I feel the same about bow huntin. All them gizmos and gadgets and do dad's....I know me.

                          I'd have a garage full of that stuff in no time. I never can do somethin halfway. No thanks, I chat with the kin in Missipi and thats enough for me!
