My breakfast hasn’t run out since I learned to close the doors and windows to stop it getting away before I try to eat it.

Run-out can usualy be controlled by using an appropriately positioned tail stock.

@Marum 0923: That’s why they call it a breakfast bar.

The recovery policy has been successfully implemented.

@Marum 0927: I agree with you on Cooper’s beer, and I live in their home state. It’s OK, but I’ve had better.

@DnT 0825. Bit picky on the grog I imbibe. I always keep three or four different beers and stouts on hand. Plus wine, and best of all, Laphroaig Scotch….Fine drop from the skerries.. If you like a a very light coloured drop, try the German Schnitzerbräu. It is absolutely beautiful, and looks great in the right glass. I have a St Paddy’s Guinness glass dated St Patrick’s Day 1998. I am not sure what the name means. Ein Schnitzer = a Woodcarver, deshalb; A Woodcarvers Brew.. But Schnitzer can also = a mistake, or stuff up. So thus we have… Read more »

BTW. It may not be to your taste because it uses millet not barley, but I also like wheat beers, like Redback from the Matilda Bay Brewing Co.
I am, at the moment, having a glass of Beez Neez. Brewed with honey as the principal sugar.

@Marum: I love wheat beers! BeezNeez is good but my current fave is the Franziskaner range, especially the Dunkel.

@DnT @0105.. ” C” Never seen it. Must look for it.

Also, a colloquial use of Schnitzer, I think, is mischievous. Natürlich I do not speak colloquial Deutsch, for the obvious reason. Ich bin ein Australien.

I have never been to Germany, even though I have dealt with many a German engineer, in my job. One who came out here, I filled up with Fourex one night. He reckoned It was “horth pith”. He was not far wrong. All bottom fermentation, continuous process ales, designed with no shelf life for instant drinking in pubs, leave a lot to be desired.

Edit’: “C” was Franziskaner. No idea what happened there.

@Marum: Do you have Dan Murphy’s shops up there? They carry Franziskaner. Or are there any areas inhabited by lots of German settlers? It would probably be found there.
I even saw some in California, although I didn’t see the Dunkel there. A pity, as it would be much cheaper there.

@DnT Yes. Just last night I was there buying some beer, but I did not see it. This Redbank area is a lower socio-economic area. Thus they do not have a great range of the better/ costlier beers.

You may know it already, but the name Fraziskaner is an homage to the Franciscan Monks, and their skill at making beer.

How’s this for a name Franciscan Monks in Poland: Szczyrzycki Brewery.

\Try asking for that when you are one over the eight.

I know a family of Polish people. I will ask them.

I once asked how Kosciuszko (The mountain) was pronounced. I know I have not got it correct, but it was something like Kos-shoo- scar.
