Honey Porter in search of hops

The recent thread on a Maple Porter gave me an idea.  
According to my Mead Calculator, 1.8 kg of a John Bull
prehopped extract plus 6 lbs of Orange Blossom will
yield a Braggot must with an OG of 1.074.  I suspect
that is high - will be more like 1.070 - 1.072.

Let's skip the flavoring and the aroma hops since the
honey will do that.  What about bittering hops?
Somewhere I read it does not matter which hops you use
foor bittering.  Unless I read that from a knowledgeable
person, I have difficulty believing it.  So I ask which
bittering hops should I use?  It will have to be a hops
tea.

Most of the flavor get boiled away with bittering hops...the John Bull
is
"prehopped" so keep that in mind...just a little of a high alpha
hop.

I wish I could read this.  What is it?  MIME?

My reader tried to expand it and I got a bunch of "????" with a few
readable words.  It is a spam in a non-english character set, probably
some type of Arabic, since the posting IP address traces back to Egypt.

Yes, it was Arabic. My Linux newsreader displayed the correct font without
any intervention on my part.

It's Arabic of some sort.

Re: Honey Porter in search of hops


From What I can read of it... ( I do read some Arabic) it's an Arab version
of a dating service..




Re: Honey Porter in search of hops



More like an Arab Spammer.
