Default 'Room Temperature'

That's a valid point and room temp beer in the UK often is fresh from the
cellar where temps are certainly lower. I didn't think a still Lucas joke
would stir things up so much, I expected the Canadian hockey joke would have
gotten more attention. ;o)

A recent thread on beer reminded me of my surprise when I discovered that
'warm' British beer was not warm at all. Ditto for wine in France. It

was not
'chilled' in the American sense but neither was it warm.

Why? Probably because of the difference in our definition of 'room
temperature,' with American keeping their homes quite a bit warmer than

any of
the European homes I visited. This was emphasized by watching a fellow

a European fellow mix up a batch of glue. In my own shop I keep a jug of
deionized water sitting out, to be used for mixing glue. Sitting out, the
water is at room temperature, typically around 70 or so. In Europe the

warmed the water (to about 80*F) prior to mixing, since his 'room

was below the minimum temp recommended for resorsinol & urea-formaldehyde
glues. (Which also explains the popularity of epoxies and urethane glues,
commonly used in Europe for a generation before they caught on here in the

The whole point of this billy-dew is that 'room temperature' means

things to different people, 'warm' beer isn't always and there's more to

glue than stirring it with a stick :-)
