I've always though Absinthe, made with wormwood got a bum rap. The symptoms of absinthe addiction are curiously identical to alcohol addiction/poisoning. It's available as a medicinal tea in Korea, and you'll find women out in the springtime harvesting the wild stuff for family de-worming medicine.

Apparently, someone else agrees: Absinthe FAQ Be warned - annoying music at this site.

First off an apology.. for you full flavour lovers.. it'd Kosty's Sweet Original.. typo on my part.. I could go on for hours about this, but I won't
I was going to take you to task gargoyle on your "Scrampy" reference as indeed you must have meant Scrumpy, and until you've been down in Somerset and sampled the brew straight from the farm, you've never lived.. you also don't get your eye sight back for three weeks
Bugsy you live a tad more northwards than me.. i.e. the Midlands.. but here Tetley's is cat's piss.. and that's an insult to cats..
Mandochop.. if we're talking lagers then it's got to be Dutch.. or even French (i.e. Stella or Kronnenberg) or.. now I can't think of the country (Eastern Block) where pilsner was created/invented.. I've a feeling it was in that place I can't spell.. Checknowotsit..
But at the end of the day.. each to their own.. if we all liked the same thing, they would be only one beer in the world and that definitely would be a bad thing..
Now I'm off to take Breandáin's advice and get drunk.. care to join me?
Cheers

Ah Liz, Sloe cider, I didn't have a hangover next day or the one after, my blood alcohol level didn't drop to normal for a week. SingsIrish Songs your local trading standards office might have a view on miss labelling(at least here in the UKthey do). My dictionary says"Cider: a drink made from apples" no mention of other fruits and "Perry: a drink made from fermented pear juice". Having just staggered back from ther pub at 17.00 on Sunday I can say that an important ingridient in the enjoyment of your favourite drink is a good pub and the right company. Oh and Shepherd Meames "Late Red" seems pretty good too.

When you are making your cider, add about 1/2lb per gallon of pricked sloes to the juice - sloes being the fruit of the blackthorn - it adds a certain je ne sais buggerit and should turn the cider to a lovely rich red colour, strain them off before bottling the stuff. When you want to drink it, go sit down somewhere first, preferrably near a soft surface, have someone who knows CPR on standby, and have a lemon handy to moisten your mouth with afterwards.....

A friend of mine used to press his own, and added a few pounds of sloes to the final cheese, to make the most evil and malicious cider the world has ever known....

Micca will confirm this, as soon as he gets the use of his hands back.....

Nice to see you back Joe

The sandwhich bag and rubberband permit the CO/2 to escape the bottle and blocks the oxygen from coming in.

The thick walled plastic bottle allows for a little compression of gas when it has slowed fermenting - don't tighten the real cap down until after it has cooled overnight and then leave it just a tad-bit loose to permit gas to escape if pressure gits too great. Watch out.... tighten it down all the way....forget about it for 10 days and you may end up "apple jack" all over hell's half acre. (In the eagerness of youth one of the first batches was placed on top of the indoor water heater to speed up fermentation - three gallons (in glass) exploded and three hours of scrubbing, supervised by and angry mother, was the penance. All future "experiments" were relegated to the "back-house/cottage."

Have some turn of the century recipes for "Absinth" which are nice for a "literary gathering" to explore the mystique of the "green fairy."

Gargoyle, okay I'll head out this week and experiment. My husband loves cider but hates beer. We used to be able to get Scrumpy Jack but they've stopped importing it now. Once when we went into the liquor store for cider all we could find was raspberry, peach, or something or other-flavoured cider. We asked for basic ordinary APPLE cider. "I don't think we have any apple flavoured cider in at at the moment sir." But do they carry beer flavoured beer? Sheesh!

I am cursed with an allergy to alcohol! (Stop laughing. It's true!) Life is a bitch - I suffer from migraines. Sometimes only one or two glasses will trigger it! It doesn't stop me trying beers in small quantities, though. A brewery which is fairly new (2 years) and which hasn't yet turned out a bad beer in my opinion is Simpson and Simpson Brown Cow Brewery from Barlow, near Selby. Had a barrel of their "ordinary" last Christmas, and we're having "Maiden's Century" (winner at Harrogate beer festival, along with their No. 4) this year. Their "Thelma's Day Out" won best new premium beer at this year's Doncaster Beerex. I used to brew, but with my husband being abroad such a lot it was going to waste. A good brewey is also Rudgate from York who do some superb brews. They do a wonderful Ruby Mild, and another, Fat Controller, which is the same with added caramel. As for cider, I love it, but it's even worse for me than the ale! Got some good stuff from a farm between Melksham and Bath once. Sold in 4 pint milk containers! Worked out at 50p a pint. Somebody now is bound to say they can get it cheaper. As for Babycham, which proves I have read down all this lot, it is still available I think, but I think I heard they have re-jigged the recipe, and made it less sweet. I have that drink to indirectly thank for learning to drink beer. In late 1969, when I met my husband, he was a poor student. The line was: "If you want me to buy your drinks you'll have to learn to drink ale". Beer was 1/10d a pint and Babycham was 2/6 a tiny bottle. So I started on Robin Hood IPA from the old (proper) Shipstones brewery at Nottingham, and the rest is history.

Save me a little of that cider, Gargoyle. It sounds great. Looks like I have a long list of new beers to try.
I tried Israeli "Maccabee" beer and some Palestinian brand this week, and a couple of brands in Rome last week. Can't say I really liked any of them, but they sure hit the spot after a hard day of sightseeing. Now I'm home in California, and the best beer I know of around here is from Chico, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale - it was mentioned in the first message. It's the nectar of the gods, I'll tell ya.

There is nothing like a fresh, bubbling, eversecent, cider in the fall. In the country with fresh crushed apples it is natural. However, cityfolk can get a very fair reproduction with a simple process.

1. Use champaign (wine) yeast (NOT!!! bread yeast) (less than $1.00 U.S.)
2. Add a sprinkling (1/5 of packet) to the top of a one gallon PLASTIC jug of good commercial apple juice. Cover top with loose plastic bag and rubber band (save cap)
3. Place in dark place 60 degrees or above for 5 days...
4. Cap and place in refrigerator for 48 hours...release pressure every day...

It is fresh and cloudy, slightly sweet with an alcohol content similar to American light-beer, but alot more flavor. It is best to start a new batch every Saturday so it is fresh for each Fall weekend....although it does keep it looses "something" when not actively fermenting. Have brewed it up to 12%abc with added sugars but fingers slip on the keys/threts after one....and people crawl home after three

If it had some hog's-hair and a rat-body floating in a 100 gallon vat...it would be close to the Sommerset Wursel's Scrampy.

Been brewing it (since age 15) ((in MOST US states the legal age for purchase of alcohol was 21....but the ingrediants were readily available everywhere ... a crushed apple in the batch can provide enough yeast to start the fermentation of the yeasty-beasties.))

Give I Zider, not that chemical piss in bottles but REAL medium sweet two or more years old from the farm.
One of the best I have drunk was 16% abv, very nice.
Years back a local farm used to keep cider ageing in small casks you want to try a 30 year old from a brandy cask now thats nectar.
Unfortunatly the EU has put an end to a lot of home produced cider "its not hygenic" bugger me nothing could live in a good cider not even germs.

re: Fortunato,
I did find some real pleasure at a pup I played at the Yakima Folklife this past summer. Bob's Pub is a smoke free pup and he brews his own local brew. Great beer and I went in there thinking I was going to regret the bar crowd. Wrong.... It was a delightful time and opened me up to possibly doing bars. The little gal that played before me could not overcome the talking and chit chat,and of course I'm certain this was going to be another gig from hell. Wrong... The crowd was very receptive and with little prompting, they joined in singing and we had our selves a grand time. I'm learning to open up and even as you suggested, the smoke odors wash off. Thanks for reminding me that the pups are a lot of fun, with or without smoke.And the beer??? the best. Mudjack

Boys and Girls,

While I conceed my partiality to Guinness as the world's best stout, we seem to be forgetting the world's best commercial lager, Carlsberg. Danish beers seem to be some of the best in general. I'd also like to express my resentment of Bill D's reference to Iron City Beer as tasting like iron. Being a true Pittsburgher, I can recognize a good beer, which Iron City definately is. Also among my favorites are Penn Pilsner (also a Western PA thing) and Pete's Wicked Ale (not sure where thats from). Also try Serenac Lager and as always, Yuengling reigns supreme among the PA beers (which also include such names as Rolling Rock, etc......)

'squeak, Ah! Forest Gate. When we were kids we used to live right across the road from The Eagle & Child in Woodgrange Road. At chucking out time we used to look out of the window and watch the drunks staggering home singing.

BTW, you must remember how to play gobs! Get on the gobs thread and post the rules.

Garg, We used to make cider when we were in The Middle East. We'd take concentrated apple juice, water sugar and yeast (quantities by guess and by golly) and cover it, stir it every day 'till it fell clear. Came out like champagne most of the time.

TETLEYS!!!!!!

10 pints of Tetley's a girt bag of chips

A girt Juicy woman with girt Juicy lips

Sobered up in't city square with 3 laps around

Then home on the paddy bus with change for a pound.

Well me and my mate Billy on the same day wed our wives,

Four years later, I'd no kids and Billy he had 5.

He asked me what my secret was, where was he going wrong.

'Cos every time they went to bed, it seemed his wife fell on.

I said,"Don't be intemperate in things to do with bed"

"God steady lad, go easy lad, think hard and use your head".

Next day he said "If that's advise I don't want any more"

"I tried to use me head last night and it made me earholes sore!"

10 pints of Tetley's a girt bag of chips

A girt Juicy woman with girt Juicy lips

Sobered up in't city square with 3 laps around

Then home on the paddy bus with change for a pound.

When me and Bill were kids one day at games of war we played.

But the pin came out of my dad's wartime souvenir grenade.

We rolled it down the garden path as if it were red hot.

And it rolled into the privy where me dad sat on the pot.

And - after the explosion through a dust cloud could be seen.

A black faced tattered father hanging smiling from a tree.

"You ask me what I'm smiling for, It's from relief" he said.

"Your mother would have killed me if I'd let that go in bed.

10 pints of Tetley's a girt bag of chips

A girt Juicy woman with girt Juicy lips

Sobered up in't city square with 3 laps around

Then home on the paddy bus with change for a pound.

I met a girl contortionist from off the Empire bill.

I took her to the Metropol and there we drank our fill.

She said "We might be cosier if we went back to my place"

So I took her home and she asked me in witha smile upon her face.

But once inside her bedroom she went back upon her pact.

And tied herself into a knot she used to close her act.

She said "If you can find it lad, do what you want to do".

I sad come on lass, be a sport, fart and give us a clue!"

10 pints of Tetley's a girt bag of chips

A girt Juicy woman with girt Juicy lips

Sobered up in't city square with 3 laps around

Then home on the paddy bus with change for a pound.

A wonderful song by the late Keith Marsden.

What a response!! My favorite beer/ale? What time is it? You're all right (correct that is) I love them all (Bud,Coors,etc excepted of course). among the commercial/domestics brews, I'll tend toward Sam Adams; Pete's Wicked made a Maple Porter that was quite refreshing. But since I got a Homebrew kit for Christmast two years ago, I don't buy much beer any more. Some of the Homebrews I've made have outclassed all the greats. Its not an ego thing. When you keep out the preservatives, homogenization, etc. it opens up the flavor a whole lot. So I serve my own to all who dare And none have died or felt despair.

Bass and Sam Adams are typically my brews of choice, with the Dopplebock a personal fave among the Sam Adams. Never acquired a taste for Guinness; I'm an ale and lager person mostly, not much of a stout or pilsner fan.

I've encountered some excellent homebrewers, the best was the dearly departed husband of a friend of mine; he brewed a peach ale that was heavenly. To his dying day he couldn't believe I bid $30 on a six-pack of his brews at a charity auction. They were worth every penny!

Mary,

Homebrews depend (like all beers) on the brewer although the ones thaat I have enjoyed have tended to be on the sweet side. They can be excellent - I guess whatever you feel like making. My mother (who doesen't drink) used to have great succes with a simple stout kit sold by Boots (chemists) - I have enjoyed gallons of the end product.

Okay, I lived in San Francisco for about 5 years--moved away only a few months ago...How could I forget their own brews: Anchor Steam and Gordon Biersch (also restaurant). Some good brews from both.

And Mick, I think you spelled that particular brew wrong...I think it is a "y" instead of "ie"...and a homebrew if I am not mistaken. I understand it is a very sweet, rich tasting nectar. There is a special blonde brew out of Leicestershire that I'd like to try. However, the name escapes me at the moment. It, too, is hard to find.

Cheers everyone!

Mary

Bert:

I live in Columbia, MD. We get our Victory down in Laurel. We were planning to go up to Downingtown during our honeymoon in September to take the brewery tour, but my car blew the heater coil and took all of our money. I've been in email contact with Jim Busch, who is an executive of some sort at the brewery, a homebrewer, and apparently a really nice guy. Let me know when you get a gig up there and we'll try to make it to hear and meet you.

Jeff and Bonnie

If you're talking about the best tasting Mary, then it's got to be "Kostie's Sweet Original"
Trouble is it's not readily available....
Must say I long for a taste of it just now

You're quite right Micca, there is a verse missing. I will get it to you as soon as I can get my turntable working again. Shouldn't be too long.

Cheers

Spaw, You should be ashamed to be such a contrarian, though I must admit that when I go to hear our local Irish band and see half the crowded forcing down their Guinesses after a lifetime of lagers, I feel duty bound to order Newcastle Nut Brown Ale. From my ill-spent youth, I remember among others, Cook's and Buckhorn, a case cost the same as a six-pack of brand names. As far as stout from a can,I think Murphy's come closer to pulled taste, though I haven't tried any for awhile. John

MULTIGRAB AND UNIBREW
(Miles Wootton)

Night has fallen on the city
Empty buildings close their eyes
Concrete forests in the moonlight
Shimmer under darkened skies

Two black monster towers dwarf us
Controlling all within their view
Day by day the power's growing
O Multigrab and Unibrew

In the towers grey men haggle
Growing richer every year
Putting people into concrete
Pouring water into beer

We'll pull all the houses down sir
Office blocks are good for you
Then in our beer your sorrow drown sir
Signed Multigrab and Unibrew

Decent bitter brings no profits
Quality's a losing game
Fill the pubs with chips and musak
They'll be drinking just the same

Sorry that the old town's dead sir
We did what we had to do
But see the money that's been made sir
for Multigrab and Unibrew

Sam Adams--It's the patriotic thing to do on this side of the Pond, and it's good, besides. I used to get a Peruvian beer-I forget the name, but I think it was Inca-but it disappeared from the local shelves. These beers are not the sissy soda pops that pass for the beer by the USA big 3.

MY FAVORITE BREW IS CADILLAC MOUNTAIN STOUT. IT IS BREWED ON MOUNT DESERT ISLAND MAINE. DON'T TRY TO BUY IT IN YOUR LOCAL PACKAGE STORE - WHATEVER IS PRODUCED NEVER MAKES IT OFF OF THE ISLAND.
