spicy. the overwhelming taste is that of malt and cloves. the undertones are pit fruits: cherry and prunes. mild carbonation, perfect temperature. perhaps a bit too much tannin. a rocky head, with proper belgian lacing.

my wife, if she read this without my permission.... well, i don't know what i would do. it would be unpleasant. i would be three shades of pissed and no concern for consequences.

i name my cats after movie bad-guys.
And strangely enough, they turn out to become like the character they were named after...

Bubba (Bubba Zanetti, Mad Max 1, blond biker) is a cool and calculated killer
While Boris (Boris the Blade, Snatch, ex KGB), is blunt, hard as nails, and kills in volume

if i ever get a chick cat, i'll name her Go-Go Jubari. (Kill Bill 1)

if any of you all wish to read said autobiographical diatribe and self-indulgent history of chemical excess, let me know. i'll send you a hard copy. i could use some literary criticism.

I used to be a happy drunk, then it turned, slowly, into something very dark. I actually disarmed a cop one night, because the neighbors call on me. I don't know what stopped me from killing him. I am usually an easy going guy, but since alcohol is a mood enhancer, and my mods tend to have an undertone of stress to them, it is best I stay dry. That and my daughter would kill me if I ever touched a drop. Believe me, she can do it too. A product of my teaching to defend herself, and military training, she scares me.

Sure, as long as you don't mind total strangers peering into your mind. You better wait till you are sober to make that decision though.

pm me your address, i'll send you a copy. a friend of mine read it. he liked it. he witnessed a large part of it.

i have a darkside, but it tends towards humor and self-deprecation. i am too easy-going for my own good. i tend to behave as if everyone were the same and sometimes end up offending folks.

niiiiiiiiiiice
Most "home brews" I have seen/had have stuff floating in them. Very nice coloring, it presents a nice head.

I've brewed a little. Not easy at my current place. I'd like to do it again someday.

I should do it again, I live in a townhome and I share two walls as well as close quarters to other units. It's the smell of the initial brewing that I worry about. I stank my place up pretty good.

I also need to find a bigger pot. Mine was to the rim.

not sure what the problem of the initial smell might be. i lived for 8 years at an apartment, while brewing beer. the smell was never a problem. what were you doing?!

you can do this with a 12 quart pot. no kidding. and turn out really good beer. a 20 quart or larger pot is more ideal. but, you work with what you have.

are there temperature issues, or anything else that may affect the final product?

Final product was just fine. It did not smell bad, just the overwhelming smell of brewing beer.

I just try to keep quiet.

I think I may need to dust off my equipment though....
