    Re: Beer-Only Diet for Lent

    I had a similar diet every Veishea. I probably over indulged because I would drink more than 5 in a sitting.

    Re: Beer-Only Diet for Lent

    My theory is his #2 consists mainly of hops & barley....and is quite puffy given the high yeast content.

    Grossest reply I've read in a while... yet I have to add my 2 cents.

    A beer with a lot of hops in it still only has about 2 or 3 oz in a 5 gallon batch. Malt is extracted from the barley and the stuff that's left over (spent grain) is disposed of and does not go in the beer wort (what beer is called before fermentation). The only solid stuff would be dead yeast cells which are not included in the final bottled product. The only solid that I think would actually make it into a #2 would be the stuff that causes beer $***s. The compounds that are extracted from hops actually kind of encapsulate alcohol compounds in the stomach (protecting them from being broken down so you adsorb more alcohol in your intestines). This stuff would be the only stuff that I can think of that would be in a #2. It would probably be more liquid than puffy...

    Sorry to those who are reading this over their lunch break.

    While its true that monks played a big role in beer creation in their time (and an important thing back then with poor water quality of the time) , we had beer a long time before monks, thousands of years BC even.

    Except I'm not sure how many bosses are going to let you drink beer at work every day. I know my boss doesn't like it when I break out my flask.
