    Can I just use my piss to adjust the pH of my mash? Also we're doing a collaboration now, right? :P

    Argos, Oldhat, you two are beginning to frighten me somewhat.

    Am I the only teatotal whitechapeler?
  4.  (10820.7)
    @vandalhandle probably. I'm three double margaritas in, with plans to head back out later to have some beer and catch a band (in that order), so I'm definitely not a teetotaler.
  5.  (10820.8)
    No you're not alone. I don't drink anymore. I do drink coffee sometimes though so I guess I'm not a tea-totaler though...

    @kay orchison, teetotal is how i should have spelled that and it's people that don't drink alcohol, so coffee is grand

    Yeah I got that, I was just making a funny. I do drink rather a lot of tea, mind.

    @ kay orchison, sorry i'm in the middle of an all nighter so not fully with it

    @vandal I've never been drunk, never been high, and don't smoke. Miraculously, I'm still LOADS of fun, I hear.

    @oldhat: "I don't know...if I so wanted to create an ick factor/artsy statement with beer I think I would do a take on the "This beer tastes like piss" statement people throw around by making a beer using some water extracted from my urine (yes, it's a thing and it's drinkable).

    It would probably be a lager."

    Hmm, heard of the pussy beer before, but not this. Hah.

    I think mine would be... vodka >.>

    @ vandalhandle: Another abstainer here. I didn't try the stuff until I was amost 18, so I think I skipped that whole what-I'm-doing-is-illgeal-so-it-HAS-to-be-awesooooome stage. Nothing against falling down juice, just I've never found a tipple I liked the taste of (not for lack of trying).

    Like Kay, I'm way more inclined towards a good cup of tea, thanks to my mother getting me hooked when I was still womb-bound.

    Anyway, linking nicely into this discussion:

    Do your politics determine your beer preference?
    George Washington famously brewed it. James Madison purportedly sought to create a cabinet-level Secretary of Beer. And Franklin Delano Roosevelt helped make it legal to produce and sell (again) by championing legislation repealing Prohibition. Upon signing the bill, he reportedly said, "I think this would be a good time for a beer."
    As you may have heard, our current president likes his beer, too. Earlier this month, the Obama White House released two official recipes of its own in a blog post entitled "Ale to the Chief."

    And yet another abstainer here. I don't imbibe as I find taste of alcohol unpleasant (every type I've even tried), I don't enjoy the sensation of being drunk, and I tend to turn into a massive, offensive jerk when even mildly intoxicated.

    If people ask why I don't drink though, I tend to tell them I'm a violent drunk. That way I come across as slightly edgy and dangerous, rather than just being a boring killjoy :D

    I don't drink tea or coffee either - but that's just because I don't like the taste. I suck down sugar free colas and energy drinks like there's no tomorrow though (I did try to cut down but the headaches... oh the headaches!)

    Stop everyone before we reach thirty posts of people saying "I don't drink beer because..."

    This is Whitechapel, founded by the late great Warren Ellis. We drink beer. We eat meat. We are brilliant and unafraid and politically incorrect!
  12.  (10820.17)
    My problem with beer is purely mathematical. One's too many, three's not enough.
  13.  (10820.18)
    I'll redress the balance by saying I've had Thunderbird, Mad Dog 20/20 and Vodka mixed together, and when I was a teenager mixed American Cream Soda with Sherry.
