Unfortunately for George and Mr. Adams to follow, Jefferson was the first to take residence in the White House. (and I'm Canadian for gawd's sakes).

He was particularly fond of Bordeaux, as I recall, and just about anything else that was French.

I don't brew, but I believe that brewing on a boat is actually not possible due to the motion. I did, however, once have a boat with a beer tap built into the galley counter top. A friend who brewed kept me supplied with soda syrup cannisters of beer, they fit right into a cabinet under the counter. That was a good boat...

Please describe how a boat's motion would make brewing aboard impossible.

Re: Prezs Homebrew

Washington undoubtedly brewed beer at Mount Vernon for his own use. He got into the commercial whiskey distilling business when he found that it was way more profitable than growing the normal crops.

Have a friend who is into home brewing, he is trying to talk me into brewing on board he boat. I've seriously considered it but the thought of having gallons of brew around sounds like too much of a good thing.

Please note I have never made beer at home, but I did work in a brewery while in uni and I have drunk my fair share, so....

I suspect that the motion of the boat would serve to aerate the wort and as oxygen slows down the fermentation process, this perhaps could ruin it? I know that the wort is neither stirred nor shaken during fermentation to allow the process to work efficiently and produce the desired quality.

I don't doubt that the results of a fermentation cunducted on a boat in motion would be less than optimal, but would it be impossible to complete the fermentation? I don't see that happening.

You may well be right, and I certainly believe it to be an experiment worth the effort

That is exactly what my brewing friend told me. He was brewing in his cool dark basement, I mentioned that a boat bilge might be optimal conditions, he stated that the motion would ruin it. Seemed quite certain, but then he's a bit of a perfectionist...

Down here we use the hops from the kangaroos. They have quite a kick!

I think Capt Woody from Lats & Atts used to brew on his boat

Re: Prezs Homebrew

In order for something to be someone's home brew, THEY have to brew it, at home. That's not the case here.

Just another lie amongst a million others.

Sure would be tough to clarify that agitated beer though w/out a filtration system.

Yeastie beasties like oxygen, but O2 after fermentation has begun in beer can cause off flavors. So, beer wort is typically aerated prior to pitching the yeast, but avoided after.

Mead however likes to be aerated during fermentation.

So, brew beer in a calm anchorage and mead underway.

Maintaining proper ferm temps sure would chew up a lot of juice though -- especially here in the tropics.
