I get no kick from champagne

If you want your beer to have a kick, you have to kick start it yourself, rolling the barrel back and forth for 10 minutes or so, to get the yeast mixed in. Rolling a 20 gallon barrel of beer at a group of people who have been hard at work brewing beer for the last 3 1/2 hours is also a good way to gauge how all that work has affected their motor skills.

Fortunately, nobody broke a toe, although many of us did break down laughing, especially when Mama broke out her ap chagi, and showed that barrel who was boss. Then we realized that she was a trained professional, who might end up breaking the barrel rather than mixing the beer, so we brought in the guests of honor, to ensure that no harm came to the golden elixir.

  2. Did I forget to include the ASPCA (American Society for the Protection and Care of Alcohol) disclaimer?

    No suds were harmed in the making of this beer.
