Re: Dry Hopping?????
I had my first one on a San Francisco park lawn (more than the legal 15'
from the street, as required by City law (when Miss? D. Fienstein was mayor,
and should have stayed there (for she is now Senator and would-be Ms Rosa
Luxemburg in absentia) outside a market near that giant [ugly] pyramid
building north (toward the Ferry Terminal, anyway) of the Saint Francis
Hotel, in 1976. It tastes the very same today -- better than anything then
available THEN excepting Anchor, but woefully artificial tasting -- too much
water conditioning salts &c. Despite being around for 25 years, it is no
wonder that, tasting exactly the same, it is not considered any sort of
'wonderkind'. Fritz Maytag's Anchor Liberty Ale is just as old, but it is
superior. (In fairness, these American & British 'real' ales used to taste
much better on draught than bottled.) Sierra Nevada is an ale with
oh-too-much by-the-book filtration in my book. Anybody feel similarly ?
