Home brew

Postby clairedad » Wed Jul 11, 2007 12:19 pm

I'm not a brewer, but I had some of the most delicious home brew out there last year. Can I come and taste, even if I have nothing to contribute?

Don't show up if you haven't made your own alcohol. Brewing beer can be as easy as pouring water in a bag. It may not be as good as my 11 year old barleywine, but it will have more flavour than Amerikan Lite and less bubbles.

I'd love to bring some of my fireweed mead, but I doubt they'd let me cross the border with it.

In 2005 someone served great homebrew beer in kegs out of a coffin.

And I thought Skinny Kitty was just a teahouse. I'm from Wishing Star and was across the street from you last year.

Kind of short notice to ferment something new and make it good. What ever happend to Absinthe camps? Wanted to bring them a bottle this year but it looks like they folded in '05.

I could be talked into bringing my small 3L still, if anybody want to try turning a little ferment into a sampler of hard jungle juice.

The homebrew from the coffin was mostly made by God, with a few beers from his campmates. Definately good beer. I hope to talk to God before the tasting.

I will have a dozen different beers and some meads, including one made with 1/3 Agave.

Skinny Kitty will be on the 4:30 plaza.

Bring your own glass.

Sour experience with Skinny Kitty

Postby jyesika » Wed Sep 05, 2007 8:40 am

This is the first year I've had any sort of serious breach of neighborly etiquette with a camp. The perps: Skinny Kitty Teahouse. Invited by one of their members to ride an art car to watch the oil rig burn, we arrived early and helped load a piano onto the car. We asked both the driver and some other organizer if it was OK to be there. We were first on. A good half an hour later, some late members or friends of the camp arrived and instead of booting the latecomers some hippy hag came over to me and said she didn't recognize me so we needed to get off. I protested, told her of our prearranged checks and attempts to be rational and pleasant. She was joined by some other belligerent toe rag and we got into a rather curt shouting match about "private parties".
I protested, not only because we had been invited, confirmed our invitation and helped with the preparations, but also because a "private art car" is very much at odds with the community of burning man. I think it is also at odds with the licensure agreement. Some neighbors later told me that they had been walking next to the skinny kitty art car (the next day!) and overheard others rudely being banished in a similar way.
I understand limitations of art cars, and obviously it's fun to organize camp parties. We weren't demanding booze or anything unreasonable. The skinny kitty camp people really soured my experience.

Hi Rev
Wish I would have found this thead earlier. I camp with Gawd and Country, I think we poured appx 200 gals of home brew all total this year. With Gawd of course being the master brewer and 6 lowly disiples also helping out with goodies to serve throught the casket. Will have to make it a point to visit with you next year.
Brew On

I was gifted a bottle of "Mexican" homebrew this year, and damned if I can remember the brewers name.... sorry. But, it was a great bottle, none the less.
We were at 7 & arctic, the LAFers camp, and you rode by with cooler in tow. Many thanks for a wonderful brew. Keep up the good brew!

Thanks to everyone who brought mead, wine, beer and brandy that they made. The Zymurgist Flocculation was a flavourful event to be repeated.
Thanks to the Pizza Sluts for some well timed sustanence.
With Above the Limit 2 blocks from Skinny Kitty Teahouse in one direction, and Gawd's coffin two blocks in another, our neighborhood had over 400 gallons of good beer flowing. I appreciated the beer brewed on the Playa and the double IPAs
The homebrew had nothing to do with Leticia, the "exclusive" Love Bubble or that Skinny Kitty was to fat for her.

LOL, that could explain a lot of things. It was a very fun year.

That was really fun also.

It is, and you just described to the T something that happened to me on burn night '05. Kicked off and told it was a "private party" in a curt and rude manner. Sorry, but ain't NOTHIN private on the playa, and even having an art car out there means agreeing that it is a public conveyance. I for one will be checking permit numbers of vehicles displaying this behavior. As an artcar builder-operator myself, I'm quite familiar with the policies. Any further discussion on this should be in a seperate thread though. Don't wanna hijack this one.

Now, back to homebrew discussion! =)

Well, I'm not too fond of heights, and I don't like climbing ladders, so when we came up the scaffolding structure near the Esplanade, Gordy started teasing me and started scampering up. I followed, one story at a time. It took me forever, but I made it to the top. The view was awesome!

Since Gordy teased me all the way up, I told him his punishment was to take off all his clothes and be my love slave. (Gordy is NOT one to do anything in public) So I had my way with him above the city, and just as we were 'done', up pops this guy on the scaffolding wearing a Spiderman mask! I put my hands on my hips and stuck my breasts out and said, "Hey Spidey, wanna have some fun?".

I don't know if he climbed down or fell all the way down, but that dude was gone in a flash! LOL! You'd think he'd never seen naked old people before!

Is Skinny Kitty gonna be around again this year (sorry, too lazy to navigate to another page to check) and if so will there be a homebrew tasting going on? A few months ago I had plans to bring out 20 or 30 gallons of homebrew, but alas I had a dome and tall bike to finish and [accidentally] drank my last good 10 gallons of homebrew.

Still have a couple of gallons that I might bottle up, depends on if the absurd grassy taste from dry hopping for too long has mellowed out yet. I'd hate to serve something i don't even like to drink.
