This Saturday is the Dine Around, the school fundraiser event that I have been asking about. The menu is set (thanks, Peter!). I will be serving only one homebrew, a Belgian Pale Ale that tastes great, but I can't quite put my finger on what commercial beer it tastes like...Rare Vos? It is a very American Belgian (if possible), in that it has the strong hoppy flavor very characteristic of American craft ales, but it also has that earthy Belgian funk, and ubdertones of candi and spice. I hope it goes well with the main course, smoked porter braised beef short ribs.
Thanks Aikibrewer for lending me the big-ass pot to brais enough ribs for 8 people!
In other news, I have found a source of free brew equipment. A former winemaker is unloading carboys and stainless pots....I can't wait to raid this guy's stuff! I will, of course keep him in good supply of my brews!
Probably won't be posting until after this dinner thing is over!
