Given the zeal to prove these guys wrong, the best tasting panel would include people who aren't aware of the background and aren't biased against the GBF crew.

I suspect that will be my role. I'm skeptical, but it's just a process.


Amanda, that's a giant pile of crap to deal with and it sucks.

If you listen to the podcast at all, you know my our feelings on these sorts of issues, so I'll leave it at that.

True would have spoken for you but didn't want to shut down your voice

Why did you not turn around and ask the secretary to make coffee?

Because there's a whole giant raft of socialization that would put her in a bad position if she did. Men who would ask would be galled at the temerity she was showing and possibly label her with epithet attached to "difficult women". Aka sometimes it's just easier to take a big ole bite of a crap sandwich if the time/place isn't right.

All Things Food / Re: Sous-Vide Circulator Recommendations

I got an anova circulator last year when they were doing their great sell off of the previous model and I love the damn thing. It's much better and more reliable than anything I could cobble together on my own.

What in particular are you looking for? I can say right now - get one and grab both the chef steps and anova apps for the phones because they give you a ton of guidance.

Pushing content on a schedule is a beast that is always hungry. Not everything is going to be a base clearing hit in the bottom of the ninth and yeah I don't think Annie thinks of herself as that precious. I have no doubt that Marshall will engage Annie with more beery topics.

The topic itself is naturally eye roll inducing, cringey, sexist and stunty at best (says the guy making clam chowdah beer). Worse, it's not even a new concept. Everyone seems to have forgotten about OPB from a few years back. Yes that was an art project instead of a commercial product, but still can anyone see this lasting longer than the outage news cycle. It'll be precisely like the old fashioned Nudey beer - a cheap bachelor party twitter inducing thing.

We used to do it years ago with San Diego shipping entries up to LA for judging, but San Diego has enough judges to do all that on their own now while we're busy tackling our own big comps.

I know a few of these guys. They're all amiable sorts - go figure!

I am about halfway through a batch of Magnum Blonde, which I would suggest as a starting point. The recipe is here, .


It's a lovely recipe if I do say so myself.

Anyone who wants to, can now listen to episode 11 of the podcast and you'll hear me talk about it all late in the show.

For me it's laptop all the way, but I'm sorta schizophrenic on it. If it's a personal laptop, I'll go for a cheaper lenovo because those are fairly bulletproof. If it's a personal/business/heavy lifting laptop - that's where I hit the MacBook side of the equation, but yeah, that's not fitting in your budget.

To me the only reason to have a desktop/tower these days is as a media server/game box.

+2.  There's a whole industry based on diet fads, but it all boils down to 'eat less, exercise more'. I'm sure Drew would agree. I salute the great job he did.


Eat a little less
Eat a little better
Move a little more

I've done the same.  I've run some 5Ks hungover too.  I don't do that anymore. :)

I did squat day once hungover. Baaaaad idea.

It just doesn't work when you have a hangover.

I punish myself - I make myself go to the gym if I'm hungover. :)

Ingredients / Re: Whole Coffee Beans
« on: March 19, 2016, 10:08:05 AM »
I read somewhere that you can get (or make) very lightly roasted coffee beans that add flavor and very little color.

You have to be careful with lighter roasts in cold applications. Depending on the bean, lighter roasts may have a fair amount of pyrazines that haven't been burnt off. Those smell like green pepper, jalapeno, etc. Can be quite distracting.
