    Yes, it's worthy of your honor. I believe it has some orange or lemon peel added near the finish of the fermentation (which gives it the complex character that you deserve!)

    My favorite beer of theirs by far is their (seasonal) "Nutcracker" (double bock ale). 7.25% alcohol, and beginning to approach the character of a brandywine. [I don't have any of that 2nite, ]

    I don't know the exact meaning, but basically it means they have to use about twice the grain bill as usual to make the beer because the yeast eats it all up to make the alcohol and some of the other stuff that tastes really good. Years ago, I had a Sam Adams triple-bock. That's the sort of beer I like to savor over 2 or 3 days and really enjoy the taste. It came in a blue bottle with a cork and cost about $5/bottle at the beer store. Once again, I think it had about 3x the grain bill of a normal beer and it takes a long time to ferment (thus justifying its cost).

    You savor ONE bottle of beer over 2 or 3 days?? Doesn't it taste kinda funny by the 3rd day? :P

    Not when it has that much alcohol in it!

    BTW: The Red Vixen is very pleasing!

    I like to alternate between bread and beer. I ran out of good bread so some is in the breadmaker which will be done and warm in about 1.5 hours (in time for verwon's celebration of New Years). Store bread tastes like crap so I'm using bagels (Thomas') instead right now. (Call me weird, but it makes a huge difference!) -- Bob

    Oh yeah, one more thing:
    - ales are typically made with a top fermenting yeast while lagers are made with a bottom fermenting yeast. Cousins of each other, if you will, but different amimals. I'm waiting for PETA to catch onto us and start displaying pictures of abused yeast on the busses and subways. Lagers typically need to be fermented a little longer and at a lower temperature than ales.

    I was curious how that tipsiness was going.

    On another front, I almost bought a crock-pot while at the store this afternoon (to make the chilli). I can borrow one. I'll probably make a first attempt at using your recipe this weekend. -- Bob

    Ah! everyone shuls have a crocl pot! It's a basic of any kitchen. The bigger the better...more to share or have for leftovers later.

    Agree that bigger crock-pots are better. We have a pretty large smart-pot back in Boston. I like that it automatically steps down the temperature at various cycles during the cooking. High at first, then medium for several hours followed by a keep warm. Since I sometimes am forgetful, it;s nice to have a little help. The reviews on the smaller smart-pots were terrible (on NewEgg) so I don't want to buy a dud. If none of the smart pots are any good any more, I'll just buy a cheap crock pot and build some sort of temperature controller myself!

    I totally missed the countdown. I think I have the wrong channel on the TV. (They are focused ion Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.)

    Happy New Years, and thank you for the kiss (even though I was distracted at the moment)!

    It's only after 9 here, so 3 hours to go and I don't celebrate anything, probably be asleep by then, actually.
