I call BS. It's about marketing, they are fermenting for 5 days then fermenting another 2 weeks in the bottle, it's how most home brewers do it. Then they hoping no one drinks it for another month to let it settle and smooth out. Also they are likely just using more yeast to shorten the fermentation process. A 10% beer brewed 3 weeks ago usually tastes like rocket fuel, especially a belgian beer with little hops to offset the alcohol.

I may have yammered on about this already, but it is still cracking me up.

The other day, my Dad was commenting about how his car doesn't seem to get the fuel economy it did a year or two ago, even though it is very well maintained and has low miles and such. I asked him how he would get all of the people driving long commutes (perceived as BIG fuel users) to buy smaller, more fuel efficient cars if he was the gubmint. I explained that one way to accomplish that goal would be to sabotage the commuters' cars, but that would be challenging, too many cars. An easier way would be to sabotage their fuel to make it less efficient (fewer MPGs) by requiring the use of an additive at the distributer/refinery level. It would be even better for the gubmint boys if the additive was made by a largish voting block that might support the gubmint boys who promoted the additive; perhaps large-scale farmers who grow corn would be a good target. Maybe the gubmint boys could even use a little "stimulus" money to encourage people with older cars to trade them in on newer, more efficient cars for their commuting; maybe that would even be enough to draw in some people without horrendous commutes. Maybe when the EPA revised their MPG calculations for all cars sold in the US a few years ago that was some pre-planning for this boondoggle? This massive shopping fest for cars might even be enough to help out some automakers, hopefully resulting in more votes for and thus job security for those same fore-thinking gubmint boys. As an added bonus for the gubmint boys, the use of that ethanol additive may reduce, ever so slightly, how much foreign oil the US buys without the need for additional oil production on US soil, at least temporarily; this will allow those responsible to claim that this was all done to ensure American economic independence.

So, the gubmint wants commuters to buy more fuel efficient cars, and they get some bought votes in the process, FREAKING BRILLIANT! Of course, some people will have to pay the price: commuters have to spend money on new, more efficient cars; eaters have to spend more for corn products and meat products that were fed the increasingly expensive corn; owners of older cars will probably have to spend more on fuel system maintenance, especially if the ethanol percentage is mandated above the 10-15% most of their fuel pumps can handle.

Kinda makes me think there are some smart people in DC pulling those strings...just wish they were on my side.

You can't make someone love you, but you sure can make them hate you.
