I will mention that what little research I did in the past indicates that the beer part tends to be the "secondary ingredient" of the two with much focus on methods and recipes for ingesting the "first ingredient" taking priority - not so much home brewers wanting to add it into their beer.

Let's all be friends now.

I only made the comment about the stuff in jest. Then you get jumped on. I didn't even know the stuff existed. Wish I hadn't bothered

Forum's gone to pieces! For a bunch of drinkers, things had been quite sensible, until now there hadn't been a sniff of a tubby cock.

One of my books does have a recipe for an ale with spruce tips, though only about half the Christmas trees out there are Spruce and many are actually plastic. Funny, I did make a beer recently that tasted strongly of plastic :hmm:

Bob made a bacon beer last year and took it to TST IIRC.

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

Did nothing I said here - viewtopic.php?f=54&t=5527#p72949 - make sense??

graysalchemy instead of just calling you for bringing it up made a perfectly reasonable and concise comment with the aim of preventing further discussion on the topic. I think I explained myself reasonably in that post above.

You might think that you are invisible on the 'net but you're not. If you (or someone else) started off down a line that suggested that they were doing this kind of thing and the online peelers came asking for information we would have no option or hesitation in giving that for which they are warranted.

It's that simple.

Ergo it wasn't you being "jumped on", rather you doing the "jumping" when graysalchemy gave a perfectly sensible reason why it hadn't been suggested, discussed or posted.

Anyway, I'll say it once more only, The rules of the forum are the rules of the forum and we will ensure that people adhere to them.

Because the people who give their time so you can have a forum have better things to do than having to get involved with the law and so that the organisation which is kind enough to host us here continues to do so without the risk of being taken offline or having to deal with the law.

That is how it is and how it will stay.

I hope no more needs to be said.

ive seen the rules thanks but I still think its ridiculous regarding a post involving the unspeakable. Just a bit overboard about the whole thing in my opinion.

There's a big difference between; 'Cannabis beer exists' and 'GUYS, help me make a cannabis beer'. Hopefully we can all be mature enough to manage to understand the difference without overzealous moderation at the word.

Yes, yes and Oh Yes!!

If you want to know how good christmas tree beer can be, get your hands on "Tannenbaum" from Compass Brewery. It is very very good.


You don't reckon it's a problem it was from Argos, then? :hmm:

I recently noticed that a local spirit is occasionally flavoured with pine needles in the bottle and thought it might be good in beer too. Just wondering if any old pine tree needles will do or are there some particularly good ones? Also are they better used in the boil or as a dry hop?

My concern was the fat content, but trimming the bacon seemed to cure it. :whistle: I had a nice head.

The rules of this forum are very clear with regards to discussing anything which is illegal under UK law. Its even in bright red

Any activity which is illegal under UK law may not be discussed or linked to either in the forums or via private message this includes but is not limited to, any form of distillation (including freeze distillation aka jacking)


And as far as I am aware the use of cannabis in the UK is illegal.

I know the rules I used to be a moderator myself I think that you and the others have not taken my post as lightly as I posted it. Its a shame when a bit of humour can be taken as serious as it has.

It didn't come across as humour mark, and in any case you asked a direct question solisiting answers from forum members who to may not have seen your post as humour.

I cant see a direct question in my post surprised no ones thought of c******* beer is not a question. It seems weird that on topos there were several posts about that type of beer and no consequences. You were moderating at the time. How come you never did anything then?
