Clamps & Gaskets: Roundup for Week 33

Clamps and Gaskets: weekly wrap-upClamps and Gaskets is a weekly wrap-up of stories that I have not posted at Yours For Good Fermentables.com, but that, nevertheless, I find interesting or germane.

Most are concerned with beer, or wine, or whisk(e)y. Some are not. But all are brief. And many are re-posts from my Twitter account: twitter.com/cizauskas.

This is Week 33:
16 August - 22 August 2009

  1. I thought the current version of Primo, the "shitty beer" featured in that YouTube parody, was a new recipe developed by Southampton brewmaster, Phil Markowski through his "partnership" with Pabst. IIRC the PR stories when first released, it's primarily all-malt, with the addition of a bit of local sugar cane. (I think the kegged version was also contract brewed in Hawaii).

    A strange beer to pick for the parody (considering how many other Pabst owned brands there are that haven't been "revived" with new recipes might have fit in better).
