Guiness for me too! but Murphy's runs a close second. Actually, the wife says it's making me fat, so I have to sneak it. Lately, all I ever see in our fridge is married(lite) beer. but hey, I can get four or five of those for the calories of one good stout!

Thanks Gigantilope & TikiBird!

We have access to white labs, and Y as well I believe, I'll have to give it a try.

The hibiscus is a bright flowery flavor, they should go pretty well together.

Good call on the small batch suggestion, I may harass the local club to see if anyone has lambic experience.

I'll report back when we start the process.

McEwans! or Guinness- it's a meal in a bottle!

but if it's ever available in the US again, it would be Watney's Cream stout

Hey Feelin' Zombified, those Scotch Ales pack a punch! Great choice. Moylan's Brewery makes one called "Kiltlifter"...it's about 8%...and it's not as pricey as the the Belgian or British Scotch Ales. Russian Imperial Stouts are another style (also Scottish in origin) that packs a whallup.

Old Rasputain is a splendid example...just watchout for the afterbreakfast surprize nap.

Crap, hubby doesn't like lambics...so the hibiscus project may be a cerveza or something of the sort. Otherwise, he's excited about using it.

Something I'd love for breakfast, even though I've never tried it, although I AM biased:

Pike's Place Brewery in Seattle also makes a good "Kilt Lifter"

The 'sputin is good stuff. But the nap is mandatory. 8.9% alcohol. mmmmm. breakfast.

OK. Well, lookin at the mess from breakfast my awesome hubby of 16 years has left, I'd say he's having a great day! Let's see... we've got toast with goose grease, an empty bottle of Bischofshof, Steingadener Weisse Dunkel, and a Weltenburger Kloster Barock-Dunkel. Yes, he's German. Very. Yesterday's empties, standards around here: Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse, Aktien-Brauerei Oktoberfest, Paulener Oktoberfest Marzen, Allgauer Brauhaus Oktoberfest and (my dad must have stopped by) an O.K. Okocim Piwo Jasne Pelne (Polish). And about 19 cases of more, foreign sounding swill in the garage. He says, Jah! Yoo nev-air knoow ven soom frainds vill be coomin by, giels? And he says he did not go to work (for the phone co) with all that beer in his belly. He went "C.S." to get a "Bass-womb roog". (that's a bathroom rug at Sears.)

Gee Whiz! You folks certainly enjoy easing into the morning! I'm not a huge beer fan, but do enjoy a good oatmeal stout. And have enjoyed a belgian lambic after, (yes, at a real job), working all night. For a truly brutal morning-after-the-night-before I've long been a red beer drinker. An ice cold pilsner with a healthy splash of tomato juice really helps to make the leap to food. Mind you, those were my younger days, before I learned to control such beastly hangovers. Hope I haven't turned the thread away from pure 'just havin' a brew in the mornin'...cheers, Timmy

How do you control beastly hang overs? I had to give up drinking last May due to horrendous hang overs! I only drank at social occasions, and not a ton. I would love to indulge in a lil tiki drinky now and then, so give up your secret!

I've heard wonder stories about boullion or Vegemite before bed. (and gatorade) I think it's the salt which is the key.

Is the goosefat a german thing? I know of a german restaurant that sels jars of salty pig fat around christmas. I think I recall some family from Norway eating goose fat in winter.

Strange stuff that.

It's german allright. He grew up over his unkles butcher shop in Nurneberg. They sold the fat from the geese in car loads, he claims. They eat it on toast and sprinkle salt and pepper on it! I have to do a goose each Christmas just for the fat. He says he hasn't heard of any one really doing the pork fat. He has a buddy, Alejandro Ray Sumpepe Realyvasquez the 3rd, that enjoys it. And it all goes great with beir! (That was hubby)
