Since I am credited with starting this discussion I should reply to it shouldn't I! ;-)

Cowdawg Beer

Breaking from my decidedly canine patterned naming schemes I actually use the name "Schooner Brews" when labeling my brew. I brew the following styles of beer:

  • Belgian
    • Trappist
    • Abbey
      • Dubble 8.5% ABV
      • Trippel 9.5% ABV
    • Saison 7.5% ABV
  • Stought 6% ABV
  • Pale Ale 5.5% ABV

I started brewing way back in 1974 when it was just barely legal to do so. There wasn't any where near the support for homebrewing that there is now. I stopped brewing while I was in the Navy and didn't start back up again until 2001.

Brewing Setup

I have two converted 15 gallon kegs that I use as a HLT and boiler. My MLT is a commercially produced one with a capacity to handle 30 pounds of grain. For a ten gallon batch of Trippel that's about what I need.

Which is the best?

The jury is still out. My tasting panel tends to lean towards the Stout but I think they are afraid I will not submit any samples of the other stuff when I brew it if tell me they like one over the other. I'm partial to the Belgians myself, but that is my personal taste preference anyway.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
