Nearly one year ago i moved into a house in Hobart, and that's when the beer making story starts, the drinking story has been going for twenty years now!
Today, i would like to fill you in on one of the interesting hobbies in the world, and that's beer making of course!
Time to get busy?
Hurrah for beer!!
I moved in, one of the room mates was a Doctor Chris, German scientist with a doctorate in Chemistry and a passion for beer, he even drinks beer in moderation, I've never done anything in moderation in my life, maybe except for religion, thank god, but that's it folks, now back to beer.
Chris was telling me, after buying beer for the first time in Hobart, he could not believe how expensive beer was, so he went straight to the home brew shop and so it began, then i used to call in and give him some help, and before long, i plunged into to the world of beer making.
Cap's on, wait one week
Beer connoisseurs seem to me much like wine fanatics, in that they are very passionate about their hobby, its certainly a good way of meeting people.
I quite like the Stout mixture with espresso coffee, we usually put a double shot for the keg, i work with Scottish guy Dave, he would put 70 espressos into a vat. He said you cant drink a whole bottle yourself, so myself and Nickolai drank about 4 one Friday evening and were truly wired
Myself and Nickolai, moderation is the key, yeah right!!
It's not like you can go to the gym after that, your only hope is to keep on going and try to be as optimistic as possible and prey for a happy ending, any kind might do!
We make beer, which is similar to the expencive stuff you can get in the bottle shop, for us it's lett than a $1 a long neck, the same beer will cost you about $8.
A good hobby indeed, just remember moderation folks! I sometimes forget, and as the night goes on, the chances decline, fun times!
A cultural experience, all the senses!
