The Pub / Re: That Moment of Feeling Terrifyingly Mortal
« on: January 20, 2012, 08:54:11 AM »
I don't have a fear of heights, but a fear of falling from heights.  I don't know why, but I guess that's always been one of mine.  I don't like standing near railings or anything, ESPECIALLY when people are around.  I just have this fear that someone is going to come up behind me and throw me over the edge.

I also don't like deep and dark water where you can't see below the surface.  Freaks me out for some reason.

And, they don't make me freeze up but they make me cringe and shiver: spiders and centipedes.  <shivers>

My Otter Creek Copper Ale clone kit should be sitting my front steps at home as we speak. Hopefully I can brew my first beer on Monday  ;D

ahh otter creek copper. I once got radically drunk on boiler makers made with copper ale and jamesons. not a good idea.
Yeah, sounds gross.  I had a boiler maker with Midwest's Scottish ale once which had a slight smokey/peat flavor and aroma.  Not sure what kind of whiskey is was, but since I don't really like whiskey it was gross.

Thanks for sharing, that was quite an amazing story.

I plan to do a breakfast stout at some point.  See if I can find the time and energy...

Love Carlin, love Bill Hicks, love Louis CK.  Carlin is like the Granddad of them all, but I don't think Carlin was really doing his most recent style of comedy, with the questioning of the govt, anti-religion, anti-politics, etc. type comedy until Bill Hicks took that leap.  And Carlin credited Bill Hicks often for the influence Bill had on us all.  Hicks is a little abrasive, I think for a 13 year old, but hey, the truth really does hurt sometimes.

Hey, this was locked yesterday, how'd it get unlocked? And why'd it get locked in the first place?

I have a couple a-hole coworkers, mainly old windbags.  I just ignore them.  They can say whatever the hell they want about me, doesn't change the fact that they're old bats.  But if it came down to it being a serious problem, I'd confront them.  And if that doesn't help, go to the boss.  If your boss doesn't do anything after you've confronted him, that's a major problem.  You can't just "try to ignore him".  That's bullsh*t.

Been celebrating it every day, for years.  8)

What a trendsetter!  Next thing you know there will be a thumb ring day too.   ;)
I never did understand the thumb ring thing...what's the point?  I guess I don't understand wearing any jewelry, so take that as you will...

The problem is you are going to only be drinking 3 gallons of beer.  ;)

Nailed it.
What if it's beer he doesn't like?

50F and sunny here in...wait for it...IOWA.  Suppose to be the same tomorrow.  Unbelievable winter we're having.  We haven't gotten a full inch of snow yet and I heard somewhere we usually already have had 10 inches by the end of December.  Been a while since we've had a winter like this.  Of course we'll probably get pounded in March and April with the wet heavy snow.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Kegging with priming
« on: January 05, 2012, 08:57:50 AM »
It does not create a different carbonation, CO2 is CO2.  It's just a different way of approaching it.  Say you don't have space in your keg fridge or another CO2 connection to carbonate a spare keg and you want to carbonate a beer before you hook it up to the tap, you can naturally carbonate and have it ready when you need it.  But you'll have a lot of sediment at the bottom in the first few pours, like when you carbonate in the bottle.  
You have to use less priming sugar than you would if you were bottling.  I think it's 1/2 a cup for a keg?
