Any homebrewers ever bake bread with your spent grains?  Delicious.  And the wife minds much less about your hobby taking over the house.

Joe,

Woodstock Station makes their pizza crust from spent grain - it's great. And somewhere in Colorado also that I went to made pizza crust and bread with spent grain! Awesome. And happy to hear your wife approves.

the problem with spent grain in pizza crust is that people use too much whole wheat flour altitude..too heavy.  the best pizza in CO is at my house.

We need a pizza and ice cream thread !

I managed to score a single bottle of Dogfish Head 120-minute IPA from 2014. It was given to me by a generous friend who runs the Rumney Village Store.

It is, to say the least, amazing. Easily one of the best beers I have ever tasted. It pours like maple syrup and tastes like a mixture of honey and raisins.

It lives up to the hype. If you can find some -- and I don't think Ken has any more at the General Store, but he has plenty of other gems -- you'd be well advised to try it, and buy it.

An IPA that tastes like honey and raisins? Sounds like something went drastically wrong. (I like the 60 and 90.)

I generally dislike IPAs, but the guy insisted I try it. It tastes like no IPA I have ever had. Sweet sweet goodness.

Sweet IPA, hmmm.  I have to think about that one.
I've had the 60 and 90.  Good as I expected.

Gonna bottle up Joe's Duct Tape Label 'Totally Tubular' Pale Ale in a few hours.  It's beer now and I could drink it, but in about two weeks it'll have lotsa little bubbles all about it.

Pete, the 120min is good stuff right.  It used to be 21%, and really freakin boozy, but I think it got toned down to around 15%.  I got a few of em aging (the old ones) along with a bunch of other neat stuff.  Working at a liquor store in Boston for a bunch a years really helped build up the store-room.

With the fermenters getting cleaned out I have to start working on the next recipe.  While I've always liked brewing more traditional beers, I have a quart of incredible local maple syrup my step-father gave me.  Something dark, with maple for the next brew perhaps?

DFH 120 is like a wine..you better split the bottle up  .  The 60 and 90 are just great..

The one that's killing me now is any kind of spruce tip shit..it's OK in small doses, but some people overdo it..tastes like sucking on a tree (i know)

Haven't tried the spruce stuff, maybe they were inspired by drinking Sahti.  You should try Alba Scots Pine Ale.  I thought it was pretty alright.

I wish I had read this before polishing off the one bottle. One beer, and I was late for work today. Yowzah!

Alaskan Brewery has a good winter brew with spruce tips, the first are pretty good but you're correct by December I'm pretty sick of it.

Speaking of doctored beers. Anyone remember or have Otter Creeks smoked porter. Some years it tasted OK other years it was like sipping burnt bacon in a bottle.

Slurped back a few Hill Farmstead Edwards the other day, certainly changed the day.

Got totally duped by marketing in Shaws last week. After walking by the Guinness display ten times I finally knuckled and thought what the heck it's been awhile. 2/3rds through the second can I was like what was I thinking.

...Edward would change my day too! Sean Hill at Hill Farmstead brews some of the best beers around. The brewery is rated the the best brewery in the world on ratebeer.com!
