HPR1627: 5150 Shades of Beer: 0001 He’Brew Hops Selection from Smaltz Brewing Company

without comments

Smaltz Brewing Company - He'Brew (The Chosen Beer) Hops Collection David's Slingshot - Pours golden, like an American lager, large head that subsides, rye aroma. Blend of multi-grain malts, an emphasis on hops w/o being excessively hoppy. Citrus taste from the hops. Malts: Specialist 2-row, Carmel Pils, Rye Ale, Crystal Rye, Vienna, Wheat, Flaked Oats Hops: Cascade, SAAZ, Summit, Citra, Crystal Genesis Dry, so dry you could be excused for wanting a glass of water to go with your beer. Bready, not biscuity, like a fresh sourdough loaf, almost makes you want to spread butter over your beer. Just enough hops to be interesting rather than annoying. Just a little sweet on the back end, so subtle you'll likely miss it on the first sip. Watery mouth feel. 5.5% ACL. Malts: Specialty 2-row, Munich, Core Munich 40, Wheat, Dark Crystal Hops: Warrior, Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe Bittersweet Lenny's R.I.P.A. Double Rye (an ode to comedian Lenny Bruce). Pours very dark amber, small head. Aroma of sweet rye bread. Sweet honey taste w/o being cloying, washed away by the hops. Strong rye flavor, much more than Slingshot. Malts: 2-row, Rye Ale Malt, Torrified Rye, Crystal Rye 75, Crystal Malt 80, Wheat, Kiln Amber, Core Munich 60 Hops: Warrior, Cascade, Simcoe, Saaz, Crystal, Chinook, Amarillo, Centennial Hop Manna IPA Pours medium amber with a good head. Little distinct aroma. For the hops enthusiast who doesn't want other flavors getting in the way, but still not so hoppy that the hops get in the way of the hops. Hoppy enough to satisfy most hops heads without making your tongue feel like it is under assault from the Hop High Command. Malt: Specialty 2-row, Wheat, Munich, Vienna, Core Munich 60 HOPS: Warior, Cascade, Citra, Amarillo, Crystal, Centennial Dry Hop: Centennial, Cascade, Citra Even though hoppy beers aren't my preference, Smaltz/He'Brew were 4 out of 4 winners. If you see this brand, grab it with both hands. Even if I hated the beer, I'd be a fan because each bottle lists the malts and hops, giving the home brewer a shot at replicating the brew and the expert consumer a hint of what the beer is going to taste like before purchasing.

Podcast #27

without comments

Direct download link: MP3

This podcast marked our first anniversary, but rather than cutting things short and disappearing down the pub, we brought you a veritable feast of a show.

Kicking off with all the news that matters, we moved on to give you a first impression of a lightweight Spanish distro. After your feedback, for our main feature we looked at a BSD that’s aiming to make life easier for the regular desktop user. Rounding things off, we discussed another recent notable anniversary – that of Ubuntu turning ten years old – and ruminated on what Canonical has brought to the Linux world over the last decade, and whether their influence is set to continue.

Head on over to our website for full show notes with links to everything we talked about, and for an opportunity to comment.

Finally, a huge thank you to everyone who has listened and supported us over the last year – the reception the show has received has been nothing short of fantastic. We’ll be doing it all again in two weeks time, and look forward to your company.

HPR1625: 40 – LibreOffice Calc – Other Functions

without comments

We spent a lot of time looking at some Financial and Statistical functions. I don't propose to go into the remaining types of function in nearly the same depth. That would draw out the series without benefit to most people. But I do want to highlight some of the functions in the other categories so that you have an idea of what is possible in Calc. Remember that if you need to know more about them Google is your friend. - For more go to
