Thumbs up Just Chillin

Man, life is great! I just finished the better part of 3 hours sucking on a few pints of homebrewed Heffeweise (I went easy on the Corriander this time) and listening to my best Bill Evans and Casandra Wilson CD's. I am listening through my Logans which is connected to my recently finished Aleph 5 and my DIYed Aleph P v1.7. Man, it just don't get any cooler than that. Pure ear candy.

That’s exactly what I plan to be doing in about a month’s time. I had my Aleph 5 and P1.7 up and going in a test run last weekend and all was well so they are currently dismantled while I finish the cases. In the mean while I am setting up a kegerator for some extended listening sessions

Coriander in a German beer style?
Egad, lightning will strike you for even contemplating such a thing.
Now, in a Belgian brew coriander has a noble function to fill. Works nicely in strong ale or tripel, for instance...but that's another matter entirely.

Grey

P.S.: Also works well as an ingredient in a steak rub when you don't have time to marinade.

Sounds like heaven to me. The beauty of homebrew beer is just like that of homebrew electronics; as long as it tastes (sounds) good, you did it just right.

I did 15 gallons of a wit beer a few years back. Spiced it with corriander, white pepper, and lemon grass. We used fresh lemon grass from the local coop instead of the dried stuff the recipe called for. Whoah!! that suff was fantastic and only got better with age. I think I have 2 bottles left. For now I will stick to the stuff in the keg (hopped pale ale is what's on tap at the moment, thought there is a brown ale in primary)

Now thats what I am talking about! Beer and Audio go together like peas and carrots (sorry for the Gumpism). For that matter beer and everything go together well, except driving. It's our God given nectar.

Dave, I will try lemon grass next time. I used lemon zest in mine. I love the citrus taste in wheat beers. I used some champagne yeast this time to bring up the alcohol content a bit. The specific gravity was just what I planned it to be at about 8%. I used Tettnanger hops. I used a 5 gallon stainlees steel keg as my second fermentor instead of bottling . It was sitting in my closet since early February. I have a card game going tommorrow night to finish it off and the guys have no idea what a treat they are in for.

Guy,

you must be a trendsetter and the entire US is listening to hot single-ends while enjoying a decent beer :

Still the best joke about Bud ,imb :
Resemblance between a bud and making out in a canoo?
Both F***ing close to water !
