Two Hearted Ale tonight (Bell's Brewery) - totally won me over as very refreshing for the hot summer we had. Hoppy but not overpoweringly so.

I sure enjoy Friday.....

OTOH, I believe one of the Irish-American "teetotaling" groups refer to themselves as "the Pioneers"

I heard that about J Appleseed too. Somewhere I read a calculation based on old records and such the amount of applejack people drank back then and it was astounding!

The amount of beer drunk in the middle ages was prodigious as well.

Now working on the 2nd pot of Melita Breakfast Blend.

Oh, got in a case of Joseph Drouhin 2010 "Cote de Beaune" -- we'll see how it compares with 2009.

One interesting thing I read about there middle ages is that the serfs got up early and worked in the fields, then knocked off at noon for the day to have a couple brews and de-louse each other. I think that there wasn't much incentive to work hard.

Of course they'd starve occasionally too I suppose.

If it's not water it's Pabst Blue Ribbon or a nice Highland Single Malt.

5 Gal spring water, 6lb amber malt extract, 2lb imperial brown sugar,
8oz North Dallas Organic Honey, 2 Liter Dr. Pepper. German Spalt 4.6%,
2oz 60min, 1oz 15Min, 1oz 5min. Safale US05 yeast (only after wort cools
below 80F)

Add honey at 5min (near end of boil). But don't boil DrPepper (already sterile).
Use DP to top off 5gal after you siphon 4.5 gal (5 minus muck) to a secondary
fermeter (like back into the Ozarka bottle). DP Carbonation and sugar quickly
drive out any unwanted air.

One reason the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock was because they had run out of beer aboard the Mayflower.
Sounds like an odd brew; does it have a name? Never been a fan of DP.
