Ok, I'm a pretty big sci-fi nerd for some shows, but until yesterday I had never watched the newish Battlestar Galactica remake. What a great show! I couldn't stop watching. I watched the 3 hour mini series plus all of season one within 24 hours (and failed to do anything useful in that time). Complex storys, multiple plot lines, philosophy, love, hate, war, and a little comedy. I can't believe this show escaped me for 2 years. Frack, that means I'll be wasting more time watching this. Oh well.
Anyway, gonna do up an all-grain batch of a Special Bitter style beer this weekend.... just something to throw in the keg and drink. I'll post the proposed recipe later, but it will be pretty simple: pale 2-row malt for like 70-80%, a bunch of crystal 40L malt, maybe 4-5% wheat for head, and if I feel right about it then I'll add some honey or aromatic malt. I'm thinking maybe 25-30 IBU for bitterness (not toooo much) with some Target for bittering and some E.K. Goldings for aroma/flavour. Or maybe goldings for everything... hm. It'll be fermented with Wyeast London Ale III.
