We got the Godtear beta kit in from Stramforged Games. We played a game and then tear it apart. Be warned: This is a 14%+ beer episode. The anger and rage is high.

Knight Models announces Harry Potter miniature game

Image result for knight models harry potter

If you haven't seen the news yet, Knight Models has released a YouTube video of their Harry Potter Miniature game. Let me repeat that over my wife's squeals of joy. A. Harry. Potter. Miniature. Game. I can feel my credit card crying.

It looks like, from the video (linked below), that the models will be gorgeous and the playing area similar to the tiles in Imperial Assault or Gloomhaven. There is even a basilisk model. The kickstarter, already marked on the Beerthralls calendar, is March 14th.

You can find the video at https://youtu.be/L1VtiDR0WkY

Gator Tears' 'Arry Porter Beer being brewed for Adepticon 2018

Hey everyone! As you know, I homebrew a couple of beers now and then. I always like to bring one of them to Adepticon for people to try out. This year I delayed (see: got lazy and didn't do it in November) my pumpkin beer, 'Arry Porter, so I decided to brew a batch for Adepticon.

Here is the recipie:

Brew Method: Extract
Style Name: Robust Porter
Boil Time: 60 min
Batch Size: 5 gallons (ending kettle volume)
Boil Size: 3 gallons
Boil Gravity: 1.104

STATS:
Original Gravity: 1.062
Final Gravity: 1.019
ABV (standard): 5.71%
IBU (rager): 31.48

FERMENTABLES:
3 lb - Dry Malt Extract - Dark (31.6%)
8 oz - Maltodextrin (5.3%)
3 lb - Dry Malt Extract - Light (31.6%)

STEEPING GRAINS:
1 lb - American - Chocolate (10.5%)
1 lb - American - Caramel / Crystal 60L (10.5%)
1 lb - American - CaraBrown (10.5%)

HOPS:
1 oz - Glacier, Type: Pellet, AA: 5.5, Use: Boil for 10 min, IBU: 4.35
1 oz - Northern Brewer, Type: Pellet, AA: 7.8, Use: Boil for 45 min, IBU: 24.77
1 oz - Liberty, Type: Pellet, AA: 4, Use: Boil for 5 min, IBU: 2.36

OTHER INGREDIENTS:
60 oz - Pumpkin, Time: 60 min, Type: Flavor, Use: Boil
2 tbsp - Pumpkin Spice, Type: Flavor, Use: Secondary

YEAST:
Safale S-04 Dry Yeast

Now I caramelize the pumpkin for about 10 to 20 mins at 350 degrees. This gets the pumpkin flavor a little more into the beer. I did have one little mess up where the yeast I was going to use (wyeast's British ale) dead so I flipped to the Safale dry yeast that was easily accessible. This year I am also using true pumpkin spice instead of my own mixture so we will see how that turns out.

In honor of our new podcast, Quantum Beer Break, 'Arry Porter will be renamed Quantum Beer for Adepticon!

Season 6 Episode 2: A quality product for quality people

We got some interesting beers today. Josh 2.0 brought us some vintages that he said he "wanted to see our reaction when we drank them." Well he certainly got that.

We ramble on about a tournament and community building as Nathan is having a hard time growing the Richmond area meta.

Ch-ch-ch-changes

Being 2018, we decided to make a few changes to our little corner of the web.

Here is a few things we have done:
- Updated the blog website
- Updated the YouTube page
- Added a Twitter account
- Actually picked up beerthralls.com domain
- Picked up a camera worth recording with


So what do we plan to do with all this? Great question! We are going to start video recording games of Aetherium and other things we play. We might start doing some video casts to augment our podcast. We are definitely bringing content other than Warmachine and Hordes.

We know as we grow and change it will be a little bumpy. Life does get in the way. We hope that we can entertain the listeners a little more and grow the community!
