lol, hurray for Christmas! My Dad used to u-brew about 20 years ago, now he's into his own wine. Has a constant supply of about 300 bottles in his basement so that he's never drinking anything newer than about 1.5 years old.

Cool! I'm the first to admit I'm more into "wussie" beers than strong IPAs, stouts, etc. A nice 5% white ale with an orange in it would be great by me, the one complicated beer I'd like to try making one day would be a lambic raspberry beer. I think it'd be interesting to do a lambic in Alberta. Seems like most of them are done in belgium and Alberta must have some very different yeasts floating around in the air.
