Death threats, protests, riots, and etc. Looks like we voted for the right folks.

Just read the Penn. recount has been cancelled. But death threats for the electoral college people who would vote for Trump...really got to wonder.

After the San Bernadino attack I wonder how many are looking forward to putting up their Christmas decorations. I think I'll go get some.

I tend to get pretty serious about alcohol production. No real choice.

80 percent of the wilds were unpredictable. You'd never know what you'd get.

Effective means non-w, clinically reproduce-able yeasts. Wild yeasts in the past, some good-some bad, were fairly inconsistent. They snuck in or were deliberately introduced. Fruity, spicy, or butter flavors at best. Skunky, dank, rotten, and some really rank flavors for the not so productive forms of wild yeasts. Keep in mind sterilization was pretty difficult until after 1865 or so, depending on where you were. Even physicians didn't wash their hands.

There is a brewery in the northern portion of the UK. Pretty cool, they use old slate (rock) fermentation. I believe it is Yorkshire.

I am working in Saudi to save for my education. Bottom line my Masters and then eventually my Doctorate will (the Almighty willing) be in the processes of effective yeasts for old formulabeers, that means organic. My youngest is (was) 75 years old. Oddly enough, I have found some of those UK brews to be pretty interesting, but I do like Middle European formulas.

I'm going to pick up supplies soon. Hopefully I won't have any problems bringing them in. Wish me positives or whatever.

I had a coworker. He got me started on old style brews and later I got into old style breweries. I learned to appreciate the older formulas, temperatures, processing, that list kind of goes on and on. I got into and stayed checking out old equipment. Kinda detailed. Maybe it's kind of boring for some but I like the old equipment. I explore old recipes. I like them. If you happen across some of those you like, shoot me the details, formulas, cooking times, temps, etc. It may take me a while but I will try to check them out.

Art sacrificed for money is the short story of world history. Those poor shiners went through alot. Real shame,too. Art is art and when it is partly science like what we practice, it is just harder and less appreciated.Just drinking it is one thing. Anyone can do that. We were born with that capability. Art appreciation is an entirely different thing. There is a place in Texas, you are probably familiar with it. Shiner, Texas over one hundred years ago. Made their own beer. Good stuff. I prefer old fashioned and more thorough, although slower method. Those old Germans that founded Shiner Bock beer knew what they were doing.

Owww, thats so cute!! Skunks look sweet. They're not always as cute as they look, I think ;-) A new possum!! How does he get along with the cats? I'm glad you did get the two cats inside. Those are the two you told me about, right? How are you doing? Is it cold over there? Here it's freezing. Winter has arrived. But at least it doesn't rain when it's freezing. Sun shines all the time :-D
