    You have been warned

    Australian 'beer' fans, I have becone so sick and tired of your incessant bleating over recent months (you sound like flipping New Zealanders with the whining and the moaning and the 'I can't get Dolly's wool clean any more') that I have decided to put your national product on trial.

    As you are no doubt aware, I am a brewing expert, but even I am unconvinced that I can render your country's insipid liquid to a barely acceptable level suitable for goats, or Australians, let alone connoisseur Englishmen.

    Still, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I've just set up a fermentation of the laughingly-described 'Coopers Real Ale'. I'm amazed they even bother to supply Brewer's Yeast. I reckon it'll be as good as it gets when I've just added the sugar in 5 minutes.

    Not that I'm pre-judjing the issue, of course.

    I'll keep you informed - I did it for your benefit.

    Well, there's no going back now.

    The final stage was the adding of the Brewer's Yeast - and that does not give me cause for confidence.

    It says on the label : "Cooper's Finest Australian Brewer's Yeast". Now looking at that logically, I think that we're in for an incomplete fermentation. The key word is 'Australian' which indicates that the yeast is going to attack the sugary slop with gusto for a couple of hours, then fall to the bottom of the barrel. A bit like Brad Hogg in that respect, I suppose.

    Beer, to me, is just about the most awful tasting stuff in the world. I'd rather gargle concentrated sulphuric acid and this is a real social problem when at my age, all of my mates are getting into different alcoholic drinks, imported beers, etc. "Hey Corey, wanna beer?" "No I don't drink, like I haven't for 26 years, remember??" "You're weird."

    I won't deny there are differences between the beers but it just ain't for me. I guess this is a long-winded way of saying I'm no expert on the topic. It's momentous for me to either experience or admit that so it was worth the post.

    Isn't being a non-beer drinker tantamount to being "downright un-bloody-Australian?"

    I'm assuming that you've come over to Australia and had our beer on tap over here, LE? Me, I'll happily drink Carlton Draught till the cows come home - or someone yells out "Cheap spirits!".

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I agree, beer is disgusting. Whenever I drink I usually go for mixes - bourbon and coke usually because we can get cheap ones just up the road.
