Beer Church Believes...

Beer Church believes that we beer lovers are part of one very large and diverse social group by virtue of our shared appreciation of beer. Beer Church also believes that beer lovers (and most people in general) want to make the world a better place. Our goal is to unite like-minded individuals with one simple mission??make the world a better place one beer at a time.

Etc...

And here's the kicker...

Jesus Made Beer

The Wedding at Cana and How Jesus Turned Water into Beer (not wine)

The modern-day Bible is a translated hand-me-down of an ancient text. It has been translated and re-translated countless times over the centuries. The oldest Bible texts were written in Aramaic, the common language of the Middle East during Jesus' time. Scholars who have studied the ancient text suggest that Jesus actually turned water into beer, not wine.

The original Aramaic text talks about "strong drink" and "lines of ale vats". But what other evidence is there to support the claim that Jesus' miracle actually involved making beer?

First of all, grains were the principle crops in the Middle East. Grapes were rare. It is logical to assume that the "strong drink" mentioned in the ancient Aramaic text was indeed beer, which is made largely from grain.

Historians also know that during Jesus' time Egypt was exporting a significant amount of beer to the entire Mediterranean region. There's no evidence that anyone was exporting wine on any kind of large scale.

Further supporting the idea of Jesus making beer are other ancient texts which have revealed that in the Middle East beer was the common "strong drink" for at least a thousand years before Jesus ever came on the scene. The Hymn to Ninkasi is one such text, dating back to 1800 BC. In conclusion, beer was common and wine was a rare, practically non-existent delicacy.

Now someone who can turn water into beer?
I'd consider making him my personal savior.

I do it every two weeks.  In addition to water, you need barley, hops, and yeast.  Wait 3 weeks. Bottle, condition, and enjoy.

As a saviour, I accept electronic money transfer, cheques, and Paypal.

If I had to go to the Beer store every time I'd make my own also.
I can go to the 24 hour mini mart down the block.
Come to think of it.....

Ya, our province is one step removed from prohibition.  It's rediculous - the next province over, they sell beer in Costco, corner stores, etc.  Ontario is too conservative for it's own good.

I assume I'm not qualifying as a saviour?

I'm surprised, really. I haven't lived in Nova Scotia in years, and I hope my province hasn't gone that way. Not that it would matter. I lived so far out in the country and the cop was a friend. :)

Send a large river of the stuff south and I'll reconsider.
I'll settle for a passing deluge.

Any savior worth his salt has all of the old testamenty stuff plus spider man, bat man and superman.
Most simply choose not to show off.

The second one is a Canadian guy I've been following for a while - he always gives practical and common-sense advice.  It'd be worthwhile getting on his mailing list...

I have followed CraigTube for awhile now and he seems like good people.  I really enjoy his videos and watch most of his home brew Wednesday videos.  I listened to some of his music to and hes actually a pretty good musician too!

Dry hopping makes for an awesome brew. I'm sucking back on a simple blonde ale I make that I also dry hopped.  So it's like a light IPA.

So what's your method - DME, LME, partial mash, all-grain, full boil...?

I'm brewing up batch# 66 tomorrow, adding in 1 kilo of DME to boost the alcohol to a calculated 6.7% (that's for a 10 gallon batch).  Ya baby!
