Halftime... A relative of yours I assume? The family business, perhaps?

Halftime does seem to be the family business in recent years. My sister, brother and I take turns being underemployed. It's been my turn for the last year or so.

One of the rare examples of good non-Tolkien writing in the movies.
It's another patch on Pippin and Merry's jester costumes, is the downside.

halfwise wrote:The alcohol content does tend to increase with the designation.  I've read that it comes from the rinse of the wort, with successive rinses producing less malt so less alcohol; but that doesn't really hold up because the traditional style has a doppel with malty, chocolately taste and color, a trippel is usually light in color but more fruity and spicy. The trippel is a bit of a mix of the two; but since it would be the first rinse you'd think it would have the more chocolaty taste, etc.  

But unless you're a beer person you probably wouldn't be paying attention to these rather localized styles.  I think Ringo or Blue may be up on it.  For me, anyone who claims to like beer but isn't fascinated by the Belgian styles is problematic.  I can be friends with them but will skirt that topic like I would politics if I knew they were a Trump supporter.  Some dark parts of the soul don't need to be explored.

Hey, Halfie Smile I am quite the beer drinker and i am also quite fond of the belgian beers, although, sour beers i still haven't warmed up to. i have never heard of the trippel, druppel etc. labeling of beers... sounds very americnized to make it more easy to.. idk.. comprehend. I have gotten the impression that young americans drink beer and not a lot of vodka etc. at parties because of the drinking age, so that might explain why the alcohol percentage is kinda important part of the naming. if you wanna be fancy here an get strong beer (as we call it) you need to go to the (state-run) liqour store (the only place you can buy wine, spirits and strong beer over 4,7 %).

about the long overdue meet up in oxford... fuck corona, but it should definietly happen. hope everyones ok out there.

Norcy! :carrot:

Beer in Europe definitely tastes different from beer here, because like cheese about half our beer is pasteurized. To ensure getting living beer you need to go to a brewery, which has become popular in recent decades, thankfully. Much beer is now distributed unpasteurized, but there's no uniformity.

I've been warming up to sour beers. But you definitely have to seek out the good ones.

So good to hear from you! I hope your live is going well. And yes, the Oxford meet-up has to happen, but I think we have to let this dang blasted virus blow through. And money is tight for many people right now, including me. (Within a month I'll know if I should do a job switch. Chasing research money is not working.) So we'll keep the dream alive.

yes, the meet up seem even more unattainable.. but as i just discovered, there is a discord server, so maybe technology is trying to tell us something ...

that's so weird, are you joking, or are they actualt pasteruzizing (idgf how it's spelled) beer? why?!

Cheese, beer, everything. But with domestic brewers and creameries that knee jerk reaction is going away. America is still recovering from the plastic food culture that started in the 1950's.

I'd much prefer zoom to discord. But I've learned face meetings must involve alcohol or they just don't work as well.

I've decided that with the snow still falling in Fjordlandia, this is the most appropriate thread in which to post.  I fell under the spell of mint juleps about 20 years ago, and it was this bit of historical recipe that captured my imagination.

A mint julep is not a product of a formula. It is a ceremony and must be performed by a gentleman possessing a true sense of the artistic, a deep reverence for the ingredients and a proper appreciation of the occasion. It is a rite that must not be entrusted to a novice, a statistician nor a Yankee.

Since nobody's posted in days I thought I'd throw this out for speculation:

In this forum the song "det snor det snor, tiddeli bom" has some currency.  I wonder if that tiddeli bom has a direct relationship to the Winnie-the-Pooh song "The more it snows, tiddely pom...".  They both have the same delightful sensibilities:


The more it snows (Tiddely pom)
The more it goes  (Tiddely pom)
The more it goes  (Tiddely pom)
On snowing

And nobody knows  (Tiddely pom)
How cold my toes (Tiddely pom)
How cold my toes (Tiddely pom)
Are growing

It snows it snows,
tiddeli bom.
That's what it does
tiddeli bom.
Now it snows more than before
tiddeli bom and tuttemei tu.

So cold it is,
tiddeli bom.
I know it here -
tiddeli bom,
I can feel it on my toes,
tiddeli bom - and huttemei tu.


I wonder if the first song (written around 1930) inspired the second one?

Yes, it certainly is. Egner translated the book (books?) into Norwegian, and made it into a song for the book. Thorbjørn Egner is famous in Norway for making stories and songs for childre. Also a very well knows voice on the radio with stores for children in his time.

Når en pepperkake baker, baker pepperbake kake
Tar han først en stekegryte
Og en kilo margarin
Oppi gryta smelter smøret, og det neste han må gjøre
Er å røre sammen smøret og en kilo med farin

Farin, det er det samme som sukker det
Ja, jeg veit det

Og mens smør og sukker skummer
Tar man åtte eggeplummer, som man rører ut i gryta
Med en kilo hvetemjøl
Og til slutt i gryta slepper man en liten teskje pepper
Også rører man omkring og tømmer deigen på ei fjøl

Sånn er det
Da er det ingen sak!
Etterpå kjevler du deigen så flat som en pannekake
Så flat som en pannekake
Så tar du mann- og koneformer og lager mann- og konekaker
Mann- og koneformer og lager mann- og konekaker
Og legger dem på kakebrettet, og steker dem i steker ovnen
Og legger dem på kakebrettet, og steker dem i stekerovnen
Det er utmerket, gå i gang!
Det er i gang, jeg går utmerket!

Når en pepperkake baker, baker pepperbake kake
Tar han først en stekegryte
Og en kilo margarin
Oppi gryta smelter smøret, og det neste han må gjøre
Er å røre sammen smøret og en teskje med farin

Og mens smør og sukker skummer
Tar man åtte eggeplommer, som man rører rundt i gryta
Med en kilo hvetemjøl
Og til slutt i gryta slepper man til slutt en kilo pepper
Også rører man omkring og tømmer deigen på en fjøl!

Didn't temper the egg yolks before mixing into hot ingredients.

Also fried them in the oven.

There is one very obvious error if you look closely, you're on the right track with your recipe approach Wink

First time around it's a teaspoon of pepper. Then he got carried away.

Is this a popular song or just a misprint?

It is a popular song of two rabbits, one the master baker and another the apprentice, the first teaching the second who when left to his devices.. it's a famous children song by the same writer mentioned above from a play called Dyrene i Hakkebakkeskogen
