Unfortunately, unlike fre d die, the "fun mushies" don't grow around here, but there are a some really tasty ones instead.

Ohh well. I am a fan of good Fungi! Being Vegetarian means I end up eating alot of them!

The "writing code" one: Quite a lot.
The others, not so much.

Yeah I love my Cinelli, I'll never sell that bike. It's a little hard on the knees these days with no breaks and all but I still ride it.
And that risotto sounds amazing, oyster mushrooms are the bomb. Unfortunately cooking isn't my forte, but I do grow veggies in my garden. Maybe I should look into growing shrooms!?

All excellent hobbies. Especially the first one.

Yeah! the ones i grew were froma kit i got a christmas so it was realativly simple to do. Just soak this glob of mycellium in water for 24 or so hours (had to do mine in our flats bin with some soya milk cartons balanced on top. and then just spray it with water daily and leave it in a spot out of direct sunlight.

Do you have any favourite beers / whiskys? only first tried nice whisky last year when my flat mate bought a really nice smoky one.

I'm more into PX/Oloroso casks, like the Glengoyne 25 (one of my all-time favorites, with the Bruichladdich Black Art 4.1), and complex ones like the Balvenie 15 Single Barrel. My current favorite distillery is BenRiach though.

In the "peat" world, I do enjoy a glass of Ardbeg Corryvreckan/Uigeadail - their 23 was awesome, but too expensive - or Säntis Dreifaltigkeit once in a while, but that's it, actually. They have a peated one (Authenticus) as well, but my sample is still unopened. I'm slowly progressing through my list... :-) edit: The Springbank 15 is also an absolutely awesome whisky, lightly peated and affordable... ah, the list is already longer than I could remember.

... now I'm a German, and I obviously drink a lot of beer. It has become notably less after my last hangover after which I added red wine to my favorite drinks, but it is much easier to find a good beer than to find a good wine in most places, so I have no choice when I'm not at home. So sad. ;-)

I cannot stand the "Pale Ale"s and all the other "craft" "manufactured" hipster beers - I prefer Pilsner, sometimes Helles ("Tegernseer Hell"). The German "Störtebeker" and "Hanöversch" Pilsners are quite fine, but I also enjoy Tyskie, Lech, Staropramen and - occasionally - Heineken for those who prefer non-German beers.

I remember when i went to berlin a while ago. the selection of pilsner and helles was so vast! and im not sure if i saw much ipa at all, i know that Germany still has the purity law but i belive they can still import ipa? eitherway the beer was v cheap for how good it was pretty much everywhere.

Germany has many microbreweries today, all of them seem to brew IPAs. Probably it's cheap to produce them. They're all disgusting...

After researching the customs of my ancestral region of Westphalia, I've come to prefer altbiers myself. But even though we have lots of microbreweries here in the Pacific Northwest, I haven't found many that brew this particular style. To echo jkl's lament, mostly IPAs.

When it comes to whisky, make mine Laphroaig. I like them peaty.
