I would quite literally murder someone if I had no caffeine. One thing that made the drive and all the time in a wee little car with Denny workable was regular high quality coffee.

I'll ask.

The Pub / Re: North Carolina ABC Rules for Homebrewing

What is the impetus for these changes?

Usage clarifications. This is the next round of the fight. Homebrew is legal, but a lot of state ABC's have concerns we do things well out of the bounds of the law's presumed usages. They're really mostly concerned with people either playing at being a commercial brewery (say at a fest) or untaxed/unregulated homebrew being served to regular joe consumers.

More importantly - what truck?

I know there are some places playing with can conditioning (I think Sierra Nevada was doing it). So yes, I think they can take it, but make sure you're really done fermenting or you're going to end up like some of these breweries out there adding fresh fruit to everything and having cans blow up.

Is it just me, or has Drew developed a voice fit for radio?

He's got the face for radio.  :)

And how...

There was the comment on Uraninum having a limit for drinking water... So yes, it is a requirement for a reason.

I know, just strikes me as one of those things that jumps out and wave a big scary flag in your perfect for radio face!

I've had a 1970's RoboCoupe for years. They're all over the place in professional kitchens. I'm fairly certain in a battle between a tank and a RoboCoupe - the RC would win.

There was a story floating around about the fake beer brands that are in movies and TV.  There's one prop house that has made up several "brands" some that get used in multiple shows. 

A friend of mine in the Falcons does some of this work - although he mostly makes fake tap handles and what not. My name is on a tap handle in Beer Fest at their home bar and another one of the tap handles is one of our mini-Falcons.

I think it depends on the sourness. Cat Sour is all lactic

27 - for the transcripts. I can't even imagine doing this work!

I feel bad - I work on an NFL centered product (which means I'm beyond busy right now) - and whenever I give presentations to people I always remind them that the importance of us delivering correctly from day one comes from the rapidly decreasing emotional value of the product due to the vagaries of the season. If you're a Pats fan like I am, this recent era has been steady and wonderful value through the season. But if you're a Browns fan, you've got one week of hope. :)

The Pub / Re: Duvel - Single Fermented (and in 500 ml cans)

I suspect that's a re-branding/packaging of the Duvel Green. Tasty beer.

It's been too long since I was last at the Stuffed Sandwich.  I need to get back there sometime.

Makes my mouth water the way Drew describes it.

Is one of my favorite places.
