PunGent: You know who else had a job unique to Germany?/not trying to raise a furor here...
Tax Boy: There are thousands of stock photos of absurdly hot Oktoberfest dirndl beer girls, and this is the photo they went with???
Mid_mo_mad_man: AirForceVet: My personal favorite: Beer Police.I thought the purtiy laws were gone. Either way we have them in the USA also. We call them health inspectors. Most of the jobs elsewhere.
LazyMedia: ReapTheChaos: Pumpernickel bread: Legal prostitution and nude beaches? How did Germany get the reputation for being so uptight.Where did you hear they had that reputation? Germany is known for making some of the filthiest porn in the world, sexually speaking I would never call them uptight.Plenty of U.S. Americans formed their impression of Germany from what grampaw told them about The War. The Bavarian corporal's pals, while often secretly freaky, were very uptight in their public morality pronouncements, and that reputation still has some credence among people who have never been to Europe and who probably never will go.It's been my understanding that Germans are the most sexually promiscuous people in the world (although, apparently they're behind the Brits), which would be somewhat more awesome if the women believed in shaving their armpits and legs a bit more often.
uttertosh: Badgerlad: Eeehm... The bottle recycling one isn't particularly specific to Germany. I know several people who had that as their first job in school here in Denmark.Sweden here. Also saying THIS^
child_god: abhorrent1: The 1516 Reinheitsgebot (purity laws) define what can go into beer - just barley, hops and water - and nothing else.No sugar or yeast?Also, good. They need this here. Fark your stupid moon dust gimmick beersI looked it up. TL;DR is they use yeast and grain mash. Yeast was added to the list later on. The grain is germinated by soaking and left moist for a bit to activate the natural sugars, then roasted to kill the sprout from eating the sugars up. From there, normal brewing occurs to make wort and then ferment with yeast.I think I'll try this method on my next batch of brew.
