Scott, yes. I don't delete any of them on line. Do you remember the username and password? Clue: it was giving credit where credit was due.

Thanks Steve! I had found the link with login info in my gmail account. I have acquired what I needed from it...(Al's address)

Al, I'm sending some beer your way either this week or early next...Consider it a much deserved "thank you" for the last bug farm mailing!

Al Beneficent,

I will send you a bottle of "wild Oregon saccharomyces(?) fermentation with 40% unmalted rye and poorly home-malted 'pilsner' barley #2," which doesn't taste bad, despite its name.

Your choice of (Portland OR) locally available good stuff, too -- Hair of the Dog? Walking Man? My first, almost still, pGeueze, after 1 year in the bottle? Please specify.

Kind regards,

Mark

Hey Al

I'd like in again if possible. I've just bottled the first half of last years bugs, the remainder sits on cherries.

I don't currently have anything "wild" to offer up for Al, but I do have some Chocolate Cherry Imperial Porter, a strong dessert beer I brewed for this past Christmas, to offer up if I can get an address.

All -

I'm at alan.x.buck@gsk.com for addresses. Homebrews of course are welcome as is hard to find brews here in the Northeast i.e. Hair of the dog is always welcome, Walking Man? Did not see that last year in Portland.....suprises are good. Others can send some loot which may also find an extra culture of something in your package.....this is getting good....thanks for offerings.

I'll post when the bugfarm is ready next month or so.

Great idea, Steve! I'll be sure to send him something interesting.

Al, if I make make a suggestion... MarkO is a pacific NW guy. Fish brewing makes a really great wood aged barley wine called Leviathan. Really not possible to find round these parts in any conventional capacity!

"... a return address on a box containing a rare treat from their neck of the woods. Just an opinion."

Sounds good to me. I'll send you a Westy 12 or some California treat for a cube or so. Just let me know where to send.

Re: Return of the Bugfarm
I'm getting a very nice reply from folks already!

But I do enjoy BW that have Cascades. <<not possible to find round these parts in any conventional capacity!>> even @ the Foodery in Phily, but if they did, I'm sure it would be $47.00/bottle!

Korndog - contact me at my work mail listed above.

And it'll be more than a cube or so!

Thanks Al.

Good call korndog, I'll take care of the Blue Dot then.

Thanks a lot again Al for being willing and able to do this for all of us, it is certainly appreciated.

Leviathan, eh? I had to look that one up, have never tasted it before. I'll bet I can get it, though.

Re: Return of the Bugfarm
I wish I had some way to tell how fast a thread goes to two pages, I think this one might be a record breaker! MarkO, if you have a chance to try it I think it be worth it. You never know what someone will like, but IMO Leviathan is one of not too many US BW standouts. I've had many, I find the majority are trying to immitate Bigfoot. I found Leviathan to be very distinct, and I personally love a wood presence in a BW. The only drawback is its 750ml size is alot for a BW, that's the only size I've seen.

Al, I know you've had this at least once, Glenn brought one to a beer psycho party (during a wood aged flight) back when he had a connection. Ring any bells?

Oh, got the B.C. and syrup, thanks dude! If there's any way we can hook up next weekend, I'll pass off the fresh hops and however much grain you could use. I think I promised you some Special B as well. Steve

<<a beer psycho party (during a wood aged flight)>>

Man, I vaguely recall that flight. Wait, did that involve a Heavyweight Bourbon-barrel Old Salty barleywine? I fondly remember THAT! ding ding ding

No problemo. It's a possibility either Fri night/Sat. AM.....

It did! Actually I have a few more bottles of the Old Salty. Lets figure a Friday night thing...

Re: Return of the Bugfarm
Just noticed this on the Beer Yard's website in the new arrivals section:

"Harpoon Leviathan Triticus Ale (Wheat Wine - Special Limited Release) - This is the first release in Harpoon's new series of "Leviathan" limited edition series of specialty beers. Triticus is Latin for "wheat" and this is a strong and dark wheat wine-style ale made with a blend of 50% wheat malts, including caramel and chocolate. Complex hopping and dry-hopping lends a delicate spiciness and just enough balance to complement its strength. Once brewed, the Triticus was transferred to 50-gallon bourbon barrels and aged at the brewery for over 2 months. "

Is this a different Leviathan?

"Is this a different Leviathan?"

It would seem to be -- I think Steve is referring to the one from Fish Brewing in Olympia, WA.

Funny they're both something-wine barrel aged beers...

I see on ratebeer now they both brew a "Leviathan" .....what a random name to be used twice by different brewers...

MarkO is right - Fish Brewing

Re: Return of the Bugfarm
Al, Maybe I missed a previous post, but how did you use your bug chips in the batch you are describing? Some kind of clean belgian yeast in the primary?

Al B
09/19/08 07:47 PM  
Re: Return of the Bugfarm
Sean,

By Bugfarm batch I mean as in a different set of bugs than the first time around, not a batch of beer. Is that what yer asking, or am I way off?

I'm growing each bug up as a pure culture in starters, then inoculate the wood chips in one big party-slurry for a few weeks. The soaked chips will be the "Bugfarm - batch 2" The moist chips will be refrigerated until shipping (to find a home elsewhere).

So one example of use would be to make a brew w/ whatever yeast you like and toss the chips in later. That's probably the typical way to go.
