Hallertau has always been a word I've wondered about howto say. Especially since there's a footballer now.

Or more commonly as you would pronounce the 'acetyl' in oxy-acetylene gas but with a 'di' in front?

OK, what about krausen? KROW-zen or KROY-zen. Bloody Germans, why can't they speak English?

Nah, this has the accent on the 2nd syllable rather than the first (a-settle-ene, rather than ass-set-tile {'ass' as in 'mass'}). Another way of saying it (that my fiancee suggested) is like 'acetate', chop off the 'tate' and substitute 'tile'. :)
