The Pub / Epic Fail...
« on: December 19, 2013, 11:43:45 PM »
 Been in my new place just a few days now. Last night, I had to walk out to the garage to grab something. Just ran out real quick, so I didn't dress for it. Go to get back in only to discover I had locked myself out. And my phone was also inside. So, in 20 degree weather, I had to make a three mile trek down a busy state route in my boxers, a t-shirt, and my Harley Davidson biker boots to get to my friends house to have drive me back over an let me in with the key I gave her. Long story short, I now have another spare hid outside, and I'm still waiting for my second ball to drop back down after hiding from the cold.

All Things Food / Need some ideas
« on: December 19, 2013, 11:28:11 PM »
 Been a long time since I've really had a nice kitchen to cook in and my new pad has a killer kitchen! I'm excited to get back to it, but it's been a while. I'd like to make a few special meals for my friend who's done a lot helping me get my place set up. Weds night I made a killer shrimp pasta with a white wine cream sauce that Cappozoli gave me here some time ago. Turned out awesome! I need a few more good ones to say thanks, and maybe impress a little.  ;)

The Pub / Got a bachelor pad!
« on: December 19, 2013, 11:24:19 PM »
  Finally, found a bachelor pad!! My friend texted me Thursday about it, I looked it Friday, paid the first month and deposite Saturday, and moved in Sunday. Nice one bedroom. Lower level of an old house. It's a very nice place HUGE rooms. Best part, I have a kick a$$ mud room to turn into my brewry!! Just a shame all my gear is in Idaho and I have to start over.
  My friend has totally hooked me up helping me get set up. Monday, she went shopping for me and bought all kinds of household stuff for me that I will need and brought me over dinner.  Tuesday, she shampooed my carpets, put down some rugs, hung new manly curtains in the kitchen and cleaned it top to bottom for me, took my laundry home and washed it, and today she went to pick out paint for me! I think I'm finally living the life again, and I'm getting back to my old Weaze  self.  8)

The Pub / Just checkin' in.
« on: February 02, 2013, 11:06:08 PM »
 Haven't been around much lately. I'm still really into beer, and I still like girls. Just haven't been myself lately. Been on a couple meds for about two weeks to try and get my head screwed back on straight. Been having some pretty heavy depression / anxiety. Nothing enviormental, all chemical (in my head). Got me on happy pills, so I'm hoping I'll be DTF any day now. As of right now, I have no drive, no motivation, no energy, pretty much nothing brings me joy. Basically, no will to go on. Just going through the motions. I'll be back to normal eventually. Dealt with it for a year or so back in my teens. It just decided to crop up again. I'm not posting this for a pity party. I just been out for a while, and didn't want you guys putting up "lost brewer" posters of me, like last time.  ;D

All Things Food / Weinerschnitzle
« on: December 26, 2012, 04:20:38 PM »
 Don't need the how to's of making it. I do a pretty decent weinerschnitzle. I want to know what goes with it. Or, in my case, jagar schnitzle, with a bourbon mushroom cream sauce. I was thinking maybe some pene', and I could drizzle it with the sauce?

The Pub / A changed Weaze
« on: November 06, 2012, 03:32:07 PM »
I'm really doing it. I think. I have an appointment Saturday evening at 6 to get inked. I've been looking for a couple years for the right design. I knew what I wanted, just could not express it. Then, I stumbled onto it last night on YouTube. I'm really stoked and scared crapless  all at the same time. Wish me best, if I go through with it.

The Pub / Zombie apoclypse survival....
« on: October 29, 2012, 05:12:10 PM »
 So this hurricane got me to thinking, when the zombie apocolypse comes, not if, when, I need to be prepared. What do you guys keep in your BoB's? I'm just working on getting mine together. I carry a backpack with me everywhere I go so its a natural transition. Things like knives and axes I'll have t keep two of. One in Idaho and one on ohio as TSA gets all weirded out by that stuff. I'll also have to get n ready for Holly to keep in her car. If you haven't considered a 72 hour kit, think about it. The zombies ARE coming. Its just a matter of time.

The Pub / view from my window...
« on: October 06, 2012, 11:51:55 AM »
For a couple weeks. Holly and me drug the fifth wheel down to Montpieler, ID for a while. We're set up right next to the creek. I could literally cast out my front door and catch fresh trout. This is the view fro. The kitchen table. We're well stocked with food, beer, and whisky. We have games, books, and all four movies in the lonesome dove series, along with Into The West.Last night, the temp dropped to 6*. But, a toasty 65 in the trailer. E have a good stash of firewood too, for campfires. We're about 20 miles back in from the nearest civilization. A quarter the way back to camp, you loose any trace of cell service. We had to come down to town today for a few supplies, and got wifi while we are eating lunch. Pending any bear attacks, see you all in a few days.

Ingredients / flaked oats
« on: September 30, 2012, 09:45:19 AM »
I'm doing a nut brown tomorrow. Hopefully. My recipe calls for 1# of flaked oats. Because Idaho is a cursed state, I cannot get a hold of flaked oats. Will just plain old Quaker rolled oats work? Is basically just for mouthfeel, right?

Pimp My System / CFC questions
« on: September 23, 2012, 05:50:24 PM »
I've been tossing around the idea of making a CFC. Is a pump necessary, or is gravity feed enough? Also, how long must it be to be effective?

The Pub / bar build update
« on: September 21, 2012, 03:20:43 PM »
 While I wait for my mash to finish, figured I would post a couple pics of the bar after I got it started yesterday. Now, I just have to form, and pour it.

The Pub / bitsy tipsy?
« on: September 19, 2012, 02:24:22 PM »
As I'm told the Germans say. I have a friend who lived in Germany for a few years. He was telling me how they would sit around from late afternoon till late at night eating sausages, playing cards etc... and drinking beer. LOTS of beer. But, he said no one ever got drunk . Buzzed yes, but not drunk. He said the secret was a bowl of I guess candies on the table. Small and white, he said they looked like Pez. He has no idea what they were, or had in them, but they sure did the trick. He said you could drink large amounts of brew without getting drunk. Anyone else hear of such a tale, or know what it might have been?
