new recipe goiing down tomorrow. I dub it Malted Vomit.
Seems like if I am on a weight loss kick then it would probably make sense to get some scales so I can see if anything is actually happening.
Vote or die muthafucka, muthafucka vote or die
Rock the vote or else I'm gonna stick a knife through your eye
Democracy is founded on one simple rule
Get out there and vote or I will muthafuckin’ kill you
I like it when you vote bitch (bitch)
Shake them titties when you vote bitch (bitch)
I slam my jimmy through your mouth roof (mouth roof)
Now get yo’ big ass in the polling booth
I said vote, bitch, Or I fuckin’ kill you
Vote or die muthafucka, muthafucka vote or die
You can't run from my .38 go ahead and try
Let your opinion be heard, you gotta make a choice
’Cause after I slit your throat, you won't have a fuckin’ voice
Vote or die
VOTE OR DIE!
Come on Vodafone you useless bunch of turd chewing bumhole inspectors! Deliver my fucking phone! I need it desperately to look like a tool @ high voltage festival this weekend.
It has become apparent to me that I should probably shed a lot of weight and cut my drinking otherwise there is a good chance I will fall off the perch sooner rather than later.
i am in no condition to start ranting and raving about the differences between ales and lagers so i will just copy & paste this info i received from beer masons
- When exploring the vast, diverse and endlessly delicious world of beer, it’s easy to become disoriented… sometimes somewhat blissfully.
Fortunately, you are dabbling in an orderly world that is primarily divided into three streams: Ales, Lagers and Others.
To navigate this terrain without steering too far off course, it is best to start by learning how to recognise the difference between an Ale and a Lager. We will get to the ‘Others’ in a later email - in particular we will cover Lambics.
Contrary to popular belief, the differences do not directly relate to colour, alcohol content or bitterness.
The answer is simple and fortunate – to discern the difference, you must taste it!
The Ale versus Lager story is a tale of rich complexity versus elegant simplicity. Whereas Lagers tend to be mellow-flavoured, clean and smooth with a crisp and refreshing finish, Ales have a fuller or more robust, fruitier taste. Ales also tend to be quite viscous with lingering finish.
In a nutshell… Lagers should taste clean, smooth and crisp and the flavour should not hang around too long, it’s all at the front of your mouth. Ales should have bigger flavours with a more coating body and you should taste it more towards the back of your palate. The flavour should stay with you and you’ll most likely want to smack your lips together.
Ales and Lagers use different yeast strains and temperatures for fermentation and undergo a different maturation process. It is largely the yeast, what we like to call the invisible army, dictating many of your favourite beers’ unique characteristics.

Having a big brewing weekend, made an aussie standard today and will be making a tooheys old stlye beer tommorow. Both will be done using harvested yeast from the nrew that i will keg tommorow.
Managed to get my greasy mits on 500gm of fresh harvested Pride of Ringwood hop flowers this week, the smell is mouthwatering. Gotta love bulk buys!
FYI Pride of Ringwood is an aussie hop that is used almost exclusively for bittering in aussie style beers.
Also got to meet Jamil today when i went to pick up my grain, or those who dont know, Jamil is an american home brewer who is sort of "The Man" in homebrew circles. He has won a shiteload of awards, published a few books and has a weekly podcast. Very nice fellow
Looks like i havent updated for a while, but i dont even know if anyone reads this garbage anyway
plans for tommorow are to go down to the homebrew store and pick up my grain order then go to work for a bit
sundays is brew day! woooo! i will be tinkering with my Professor Fuel recipe (Australian Standard)
2kg Joe White Traditional Ale Malt
2kg Joe White Pilsner Malt
Pride of Ringwood hops to bitter
Recultured coopers pale ale yeast
hopefully this should give me a beer that ends up like coopers pale ale. Why rice you ask? rice adds body to the brew & alchol content whilst not adding any additional flavour or colour, i could use table sugar or dextrose to boost alc but i dont really like the flavour profile these give, sugar can give of a cidery taste and dextrose thins the brew out too much and affects mouth feel...
will also be making some tuscan beef in the slow cooker and making a batch of white chocolate fudge
Know it All Fuel
3kg Joe White Ale Malt
2kg Joe White Pilsner
