Long time listener, love your show. Just wondering if you can send me or post your recipe for your «Aprihop» copy.

Keep the BBQ hot and the beer fresh.

Thanks for the comment Kirk. Our first «.de» email address! :) Gotta love the international reach of the internet.

I watched Dick brew this, so I can get the majority of the recipe. The base was a «True Brew Pale Ale» extract kit, but he added Curaçao, ground coriander seed, and 2 pounds of apricot puree (1 pound in the primary, 1 pound in the secondary).

Great show... Glad to see you found a good «closing» music. Really hits home.

Dogfishhead is a great brand. Its hard to argue with any of there versions of your favorite beers. Great show idea.

Cant wait for Susan's birthday show... Any footage of that pillow fight?

Hey I tried the 90 minute IPA at the pool party... I thought it was pretty good..of course, I had it right after one of Carol's extra strong it is hard to say what I was tasting!

You know, that 120 minute IPA is a little over the top, but it's definitely something I think anyone who's really into beer should try at least once. It's a shame it's so damned expensive.

I enjoyed listening to Christy's reaction to it. Cough Medicine! That's too much. That's an awesome endorsement. 😀

Don't let anyone tell you this is your «Maudite» because there aren't too many of those guys who would really say they totally enjoyed it either.

I had some other beer connoisseur's try it and we're pretty much all in agreement. Interesting beer, glad I tried it, won't go out of my way to have more. Now the 90 minute Imperial IPA... that stuff rocks my boat!

Thanks for chiming in Clarke!

Catching up on my BFH listening. Show sounds great! I love 90. I have not done it for a long time but I used to do half 60 and half 90 draft, calling it a 75.

I really liked this show - great music. It made me go out and by a George Thorogood CD. Wish the 90 min. IPA was just as accessible in Europe.
