Hopefully Phillip,

She hasn't been frightened off by that picture of the blue child of a demon in your first photo.

If you do hear from her, this thread needs a female advisor.

In reply to # 3889432 by MGB777 Let us pray ,,,,,,,,,,, The Beer Prayer ,,,,,,,, author unknown

Our lager,
Which art in barrels,
Hallowed be thy drink.
Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk,
at home as in the tavern.

Gives us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillages,
as we forgive those who spill against us,
and lead us not to incarceration,
But deliver us from hangovers,

For thine is the beer,
The bitter and the Lager.
Forever and ever

Now I have just been lucky enough to have a window of good weather, following on from Hurricane Erik that's been making beer tracks difficult to follow.

So as Jim has inspired this great and serious thread, I felt that I had better call on my neighbour and do some joint research.

This is what our research found.

Kind Regards Johnny

Now having got distracted by various folk on the What have you done today thread. Causing me serious procrastination and eventual work on the Midget boot seal, I can now get down to the important art of sterilisation and possible bottling.

But being British a cup of tea first to celebrate my earlier endeavours.

Hi guys, interesting hobby!!, never brewed anything except morning coffee. Buy mine ready to go down the hatch other than interesting mixing possibilities and ice of course. (remember its hot in here). Palo Viejo ( Old Tree )rum is one of the best selling locally, there is also Don Q as in Don Quijote and of course Internationally known Bacardi, whose largest elaborating plant is here in PR although originally was in Cuba. Good luck to all with your brewing may it have good taste and punch.smoking smiley

I realize that this is the MG forum but because it’s home brew maybe you can make an exception and allow a Triumph in.

Jorge and Ernie,

You may be surprised to know that the Chief Technical Advisor, Honourable Soothsayer and myself were only just discussing shortages. We came to the conclusion, that we were short of both a Rum and Caribbean Beverage Advisor and also Triumph Representative with a keen knowledge of Booze.

Now Jorge in our discussions Jim as technical advisor, asked me to ask you the question as to whether adding that quality rum to the fuel mix is comparable to adding nitrous oxide? He would appreciate if you could supply any relevant data based on your knowledge and findings.

The committee would love you both to accept these posts.

Kind regards John Warner Head Brewer

Ernie,

Having relooked at your post and having looked at the fine label on that homebrew, we would like to extend the invite to the posts of Chief Marketing & Graphics Advisor incorporating Triumph Boozyman.

Kind regards John Warner

Nice label, Ernie! Scottish Ale, presumably?
Nice car, too!

British car and ale! How can you go wrong?

Today after much deliberation from the committee; over should we brew the traditional Norfolk best bitter Nelson's Revenge, or spread a hand across to our friends on the other side of the North Sea (formally known as the German ocean).

So it was after much procrastination that our head brewer settled down to preparing the Belgian ale.

Obviously a long slow process requiring many cups of tea and deep thought.

So let the sterilisation begin
The prep
And most importantly the cup of tea (We may be making Belgian beer, our British brewer needs to fly the occasional Union Flag. Unless drinking tea on a boat in which case the Union Jack would be used of course).

Cheers must go and put the kettle on

Johnny

I have received a number of emails enquiring about our help with particular matters.
Some of these require the help of our Technical advisor, some the forum wise man, others our Caribbean & European advisors and some are just general and open for any help.

#1 Sirs can you enlightened me as to whether the waters of the Rio Grande de Arecibo and Rio Grande de Anasco, are suitable for use in homebrew?
If so what malts, yeast and styles of beer do you recommend. Also will the odd fish, frog and tadpole affect the flavour?

#2 I am worried prohibition may be reintroduced,
I also enjoy the odd trip to Mexico and Columbia.
Do you know of anyone who knows about and might be able to supply turbocharged engines, for small British sports cars. I plan a test run on say route 66 and am giving myself serveral months before testing.

#3 I am worried about light heads and strange visions along with feelings of nausea and often find myself asleep on cold floors near barstools with no remembrance of how I got there.
Do you think that I may be in touch with the spirit world?

#4 What differential and gearing would you recommend for running crates of Rioja up and down the Pyrenees?

Puerto Rico General Health Risks: Schistosomiasis
Infection is transmitted by snails living in fresh water such as lakes, rivers, streams and ponds. In puerto Rico tis is known as bilharzia, I lived there 17 years and was always cautioned as to swimming in fresh water there. I suppose if you flushed your MG Midget cooling system and filled it with river water with the hottest thermostat you can find and ran it for a couple of weeks you could then use it for brewing. In puerto rico the home brew they make is at least 150 octane, making superior fuel for both MG and merriment. Bilharzia can't handle the home brew.
