The railroad means security down the road. And I think you don't need to shell out for Social Security either, but not sure on that.

I go to the same place day in day out and get paid very well. Very well indeed. Cap you would go insane at my work place.

How's this for metal-work?

All Things Food / Re: I'd like to discuss bacon, again.
« on: December 04, 2010, 12:43:01 PM »
This is what I had with lunch today:

Two strips thick center-cut bacon chopped
Two slices yellow onion diced
One package of pre washed fresh spinach
Salt and pepper to taste
Large skillet on med-low heat

Render bacon until crispy and remove from skillet. Drain all but a 2 tsp of the fat and add onions and saute until translucent. Add spinach, s&p and bacon and wilt. This takes all of 30 seconds turning with tongs.

Remove from pan and serve. I used the mixture to top roasted pork sandwiches. Yummy.

Yes. Let's talk bacon, again.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Negra Modelo

I like it. Supposedly they don't even brew this type of lager in Vienna any more. Not sure about that tho. And, it's confusing when sources also say it's Munich Dunkel. ???

Anyway besides Bohemia it's my favorite Mexican beer.

Tubercle I look at those and think that they look so tinny you could dent em with yer thumb

I like the looks because you can put a valve on them, which I have on all my fermenters.

I also portion mine out and freeze in pint containers. Then remove them from the containers and store in gallon freezer bags. Think I can fit five per bag.

Easy to pop one into a bigger serving container and take to work. Surprising thing is they stay frozen very well and keep my lunchbag nice and cool.

Do not watch this unless seated in a chair equipped with a restraining device. If you have been drinking you may want to have a small bucket nearby........

Long linky shortened.


Someones got to do it. But not me. Not ever.

I make the turkey stock the next day, have two gallon jugs frozen in the keggerator bottom. It's nice to have extra freezer space! Will make something nice with that this winter......Usually some meatballs, Brussels sprouts, s***ake...... yum.

I can't believe the granny software won't let you spell s***ake. ???

Thanks guys, I jerry rigged a little blow off tube until I can run to home depot in the morning to create something a little more solid.

@ euge If I don't fill the carboy so full I won't have this problem? I feel like the pressure would be created no matter how much liquid is inside but I also have no idea what I'm talking about.

Or you could get a bigger fermenter as Denny suggests, but that might not be practical. With more head space the krausen has room to expand without forcing itself out through the airlock or blow-off tube. But it's all good. Blow off tubes are a good solution. It also depends on type of yeast. Some have a tendency to go really "crazy"!

Looks like a successful fermentation. Don't fill it so full and you won't have a blow off problem. But with a blow-off tube it's no problem- see?

Welcome to the obsession.

Hey Denny, I left my DVR in Ohio. I can give ya a website, and some simple instructions, so you can download pretty much anything you ever wanted to watch. Fact is, I hardly ever watch a television broadcast at all anymore. The day after the show airs, I download it, and watch it at my leisure. Leftme know if you're interested.

sure, weaze, post the website & instructions..... inquiring minds want to know

Yeah. It isn't Hulu or something like that is it? ;)

I've never had one go past a month so I can't say for sure. Does that mean commercial beers like Paulaner Hefe-Weizen really are sub-par? I enjoy them.
