Here he Comes to save the Day.
Saying for the day: Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza. ~Dave Barry
Remember the old Mighty Mouse cartoon when things got really desperate then you would hear the words “ Mighty Mouse is on his way” and you knew everything would be alright.
That’s what I want my Friday entries to be. The good news that help is on the way.
We are threatened by Global Warming on the one hand and dependence on foreign oil on the other. Our economy is a shambles. Gas is up to $4.00 a gallon. Congress is too busy playing politics.
Never fear Mighty Mouse is on his way.
I am scouring the net, reading all the scientific journals I can find and where I see light I will share it with you.
Today I have found a technique which if fully utilized would save the equivalent of three million tons of coal a year. That’s a lot of CO2 not going into the atmosphere.
Further this is not an experimental technique. It is already in use by a British company. Indeed a British Company, Pursuit Dynamics, is marketing this remarkable invention.
What is this magic contraption? It is a wort heater that fires steam at the wort at 3000 feet per second.
If you don’t know what wort is your not much of a beer drinker. Wort is what you get after you soak your malted barley in water. Then it has to be heated to get rid of impurities.
Enter the stream blaster. It breaks the wart in droplets which heat twice as fast cutting the brewing time and using only half as much energy as regular brewing.
At the moment Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewery , is using the technique to make its Spitfire Lagers and ales. With no complaints from the customers.
As energy costs increase more and more breweries will convert.
As this happens you can do your part to help end Global Warming by only drinking beer that says it is steam blasted on the can.
All beer drinkers need to make this little sacrifice to save the world.
Now tell your favorite bar that they need to import Spitfire Lager and why.
Beer drinkers of the world we are counting on you.
#### News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. Sergeant York left for Canada on the milk train this morning. He is convinced that the local whale sighting is a hoax just like the White Rabbit. He shared with Eino that the White Rabbit was malfunctioning when he saw it. The eye just kept blinking and blinking and blinking. As a RCMP he notices things like that. Tommy UK told Eino that the rabbit might have had something in its eye. In any case the RCMP is gone back to check on his own whale.
