    UP: you obviously didn't know that it's ground up human that gives Tooheys it's 'distinctive' flavour...

    It's kind of like the Red Tick Beer in The Simpsons.

    Thanks Narc (hows fatherhood btw) I imagined that they were supposed to be a sacrafice to the rain gods but then thought Tooheys were risking turning christian consumers away by promoting paganism so thought there might be some other symbolism involved. (perhaps it is beacause its sooooo quiet at work today that the subject even arose)

    it is a sacrifice

    the reindeer or elk is the tooheys emblen - hence you cant make beer unless its tooheys

    Dan - im sure the fermentation was sped up by the increase in solar radiation.

    Thanks Fluff I forgot about that, considering how many stubbies and cans of the stuff I have consumed it is strange. Then again that could be the very reason it slipped my mind :D

    Fluffy, you shoudl realise that the fermentation, would actually be hindered by
    1 - Low temperatures
    2 - Exposure to light
    3 - exposure to air!

    How did they over-come that problem with a mere trebege` and make it complete fermentation, including final sugar break-down within a few minutes when even a small homebrew takes at least 3 weeks?

    Dan - stop letting facts get in the way of a good story.

    once i get a suitable residence im very keen on getting a proper home brewing operation going, not your magic can from the supermarket stuff. My uncle has been doing it for years and makes a magnificent blonde based on heineken hops and his brunette is a great drop too.

    I think Fro was having a go at your spelling Dan :)

    The catapult thingy is a "trebuchet". The only thing I can think "trebege" is is an anagram of "Gee Bert".... watching too much Sesame Street mate?

    Actually I wasnt..........for a change :)

    I thought it was a trebuchet but wasn't certain, did a google and it is spelt both ways, but its the same gadget.

    Cant possibly imagine why you thought I was having a dig Narc ;)

    nice. It is a great beer. Though when i went to buy a case last week Dan Murphy's was dry! I have made too many fans.

    Blonde is also a lager type not just a barnd name
