Coming attactions

Time for a short pause in my travel posts. I worry they might get tedious if I have too many in a row. Here’s a preview of what to expect in this blog over the next couple of weeks.

  • More about Berliner Weisse. Believe it or not, I still have loads more material on this subject. And I haven’t even looked searched all my old German books properly yet. I’m bound to find more. There’s another book on German top-fermenting beer I’ve got my eye on. When I finally get paid, I’ll probably buy it.

  • The remaining 5 days of the Franconia/Bohemia tour. Judging by past experience, the posts will shrink drastically as I approach the end. To your delight, no doubt.

  • Hausbrauwesen in Bavaria. You may remember me mentioning the book I bought in Nuremberg. It’s packed with the sort of statistics I just can’t resist. OK, I admit it: I can’t resist any statistics. I’m hoping that the book will reveal more about the fascinating phenomenon of Zoigl.

  • 20th century Mild grists. Part 1: 1900 to 1940. If you think I’m being deliberately obscure, you’re probably right. More light reading based on the Barclay Perkins and Whitbread brewing logs.

  • Dutch Münchner: a lost style. The title says it all. A bunch of random information about the dark lager that was once brewed throughout The Netherlands.

  • Kulmbacher: another name from history. This rather depends on me doing some fresh research. Don’t hold your breath.

  • K Ales: grists from the logs.

  • Amsterdam pubs. The weather’s getting better. Good time to go exploring in Amsterdam. I may even get to Amsterdam Noord.

I’m making no promises. It may be some while before (or never) that I get around to writing on these topics. This is just my provisional plan.

I know what you mean about statistics. It seems that 48.65% of the UK population agree that statistics are irresistible. Of that 48.65%, 87.3% are male. Of that 87.3%, 59% have a university degree etc. etc.

I'm enjoying the Franconia posts though. (-;

Ron, I also doubt that I'll get tired of your travel tales.

Whenever I plan to write anything on my blog, I never end up doing it. Spontaneity goes with the medium! So free your mind El Ronberto.

Stonch, I like to keep my mind under lock and key. It's safer that way. You never know what might happen if it ever got out.
