There is one very simple rule when selecting bottled beers from an unfamiliar range: choose only those which are bottle-conditioned. There are good beers around which are not bottle-conditioned - and there are many very bad ones. However, I have NEVER drunk a poor bottle-conditioned beer.

Most brewers do mark the labels as "bottle-conditioned" but if they don't there's an easy way to check:

Take the bottle and hold the base of it up to the light. Swirl, shake or even invert it and you will see a deposit of yeast. It might be very slight (as is the case with Goose Island IPA) or very heavy (as is the case with Hop Back Summer Lightning). But even the smallest quantity indicates bottle-conditioning and quality.

On the other hand, if the beer is crystal clear and bright, put the bottle back and move on.

Oh no! I chose the ones that had the funniest names and best looking bottles! Seriously, though, this guy seemed to know what he was doing. (I think I might have a personality disorder when it comes to taking alcoholic beverages seriously)

Also, we have reservations to go to a place that serves cask-conditioned ale (I think I said this in another post) so they should be well-aled this evening.

Yes. Some people buy wine that way. And it's just as unreliable a system.

Anyway, you're just off out and I'm away to my bed.

Enjoy your cask-conditioned beer.

There were 63 new topics last month. That is slightly down on some months, agreed, but nothing to worry about. It works out at two a day. 42 were created by the 'top 5', leaving 21 shared among the rest. Very often people will post to an existing thread, in some cases reviving one several years old, instead of starting a new one. I think I prefer that to a completely new topic every time, as it gives us the chance to re-read old discussions.

Wordcrafter, I know you are experimenting with different colors. For me, I prefer the current look...something light with some blue and white or blue-gray and white. Just letting you know my preferences. I really don't much like this yellow, or whatever color it is.

Here are a few more stats:

Number of definite bookings for the Wordcraft Convention (October 6th 2006) Nil.

Number of provisional bookings for the Wordcraft Convention (October 6th 2006) Nil.

Number of rooms held in Birmingham - plenty.

I am keeping my fingers crossed...

I just haven't filled it out yet, Richard. I will, don't worry.

It's interesting how my posts seem to be very similar in number, from month to month. I didn't think I was that predictable! Wink

Arnie, do you know how they count "active user count?" That seems to have gone down, while the average views per day have increased quite a bit. I seem to be decreasing the number of topics that I start. Interesting. Thanks, Arnie!

I've always taken active user count to be the number of individual posters in that month. Don't forget that February has only 28 days so is 2-3 days shorter than other months.

In April and May my 188 posts would have put me in first place, but last month Kalleh raised her game to 212 posts. Wink

Sorry, Sue! I couldn't resist the innuendo!

Well, Arnie, is this the first time you've been on top? Nice to see you there! Wink

Yep, first time. Wink

It will take some time to catch you up in overall posts, though, Kalleh. Big Grin Out of curiosity I searched for the five most prolific posters and came up with the following list. Note that it appears to include PMs as the numbers differ from the number of posts shown below our forum posts:
  • Kalleh 10608
  • arnie 5278
  • jerry thomas 4809
  • Caterwauller 4084
  • haberdasher 3904
Perhaps if you stop posting for about three years someone will catch you up. Roll Eyes

I remember setting out one month over a year ago to beat Kalleh in her monthly posts. I think I only achieved that once, and I assume I annoyed some people in the process! I'm clearly not the word expert that some others are here, and making flippant comments can only take one so far.

CW,

Yes, if you scroll back up this thread there are a few months where you beat Kalleh around a year ago.

Please don't underestimate the importance of your posts, though. I am sure that most people are pleased to read your posts, and even if they are often flippant, they can also show a different way of looking at things. Keep it up! Smile

CW, you are a wonderful contributor here, and you add a great perspective. Come on...be my rival!

I probably post too much. When I read a book or the newspaper, I always think, "Ah...great post!" Oh, well...that's what happens when you don't have a life. Wink

Asa...your humor is wonderful. (I like curmudgeonette the best, for the record. Wink)
