Hanging around in Paris waiting for my train - and the journey back itself - gave me plenty of reading time on Thursday. Enough to rattle through a whole stack or articles from the Journal of the Institute of Brewing. Ones from about 1900.
There was so much fascinating stuff that I can't decide what to post about first. This is where you come in. You decide for me. I suppose not so much democracy as indecision in action.
Here's a list of topics, tell me which you'd most like to hear about:
- a history of beer duty
- non-deposit bottled and cask beers
- modern mashing operations
- colour measurement
- coloured malts
- the use of flaked malts
- arsenic in beer
Go on. You decide. I can't be arsed.
