There was priming sugar? You didn't mention it.

Don't worry about it. From what I've seen/experienced many homebrewing careers start by jumping in headfirst and asking questions later.  :D

You don't like the beer? Try again. Read this first.

Preserved lemons rock!

You don't remove the chicken while the rice cooks?

Burnt raisin and liquorice all-sort. Aromatic. Effervescent.

Per wikipedia

Serving Instructions

Serve the beer slowly in a balloon glass (like one pictured) so as to create a rich foamy head. Leave some beer in the bottle so the glass can be topped up afterwards. Leave the yeast deposit in the bottom of the bottle and present the bottle with the glass.

This is the way I've been joying all my Belgians.

Bottle on the table cork on the floor...

I say the EKG. Have very fond memories of the big grapefruit back when I used EKG's in 07. Like drinking ruby red. That's it I'm ordering some!

That. Yes that.

What ever it has to do with crackers I don't know. But I have to have one!

One of my main motivations for getting a KA is the pasta attachment.  If I never had to hand roll another batch of pasta, I'd be a happy guy!

...I also use it to make steamed dumpling skins.

+1 Snap! I eat the hell out of those things.

After sitting for months I'm feeding my poolish. Almost poured out the cup of liquid but thought... Hmm there's flavor components. Probably would have got drunk if I was brave enough to do a shooter...

Stout or porter, whichever I've got on hand. But anything relatively dark with low hop bitterness will do.

I ruined a pot of borracho beans by adding one of my beers. Didn't think it was a hoppy beer but it ruined the beans by making them too bitter. So now I go for low hopped beers if adding to chili or beans.

Not my favorite movie, but we watch Christmas Vacation every year.  It's the only movie that I watch like that (year after year).

Sh!tter's full Clark

How about the 1983 A Christmas Story...? I'll watch it at least once this season.

Sat I had grilled grass fed Angus: a choice NY strip and a top sirloin steak both marinated in fresh squeezed lime juice and cilantro.

Grilled medium and sliced thin most of it got vac-sealed in small portions. I'll be taking them to my geriatric parents at Thanksgiving. Also did two racks of St Louis style ribs. They'll get most of that too.

The next night posole from smoked country-style pork ribs. It was truly awesome and there's nothing left. Dinner? Tonight? If I'm lucky something barely edible from the cafeteria at work... :P

Barry Lyndon is a damn good movie.

And that he came to such a poor end... :'(

Okay folks. Besides beer drinking I like movies. Sometimes they even go together. ;)

Favorite two movies of all time:

Segio Leone's 1966 Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo

Ridley Scott's 1977 The Duellists

How about yourself?

The Kombucha mushroom people,
sitting around all day.
Who can believe you?
Who can believe you?
Let your mother pray!

I heard that as I read the title! LOL

Bought a 16oz bottle of plain Kombucha tea at Whole foods for $2.50. It had a nice big scoby in there which I was assured could start a batch. Alas I read that it can be toxic so was spooked. Sat in my fridge for years until I threw it out.

Looked unchanged from the day I bought it.

The kombucha is a different animal. As they say it's natures sunshine.. I usually drink that at night.  Right after drinking it, I can hear the microorganism eating away at all the food particles that are deposited or stuck in my intestinal track.  When I wake up in the morning I go use the restroom, I then flush and leave the restroom a happy man; it really makes my day to have something so simple like that go so smooth.

Regularity is indeed a fine thing! I may have to revisit this idea.

It's not optimal but sometimes I recap the big bottles and finish next day. And some of those big brews are deceptive. Alcohol bite is so well hidden then you look at the label... :o

I'm downloading the mp3.

I like beer that doesn't get you bombed after 2 pints. And as homebrewers we can brew as strong as we want. I'm sure everyone goes through their high alcohol brew phase. Pretty much stay below 12.5 brix now except for the rare brew like an IPA.

Session beer's where it's at IMO. +1

I just ran-out of starsan sanitizer.  I have to transfer some beer, and apple cider from the primary containers over to some corny kegs for aging and conditioning.  Can I used house hold bleach to sanitize the stainless steel corny kegs.  I'm thinking, If I rinse the corny's after sanitizing them with the chlorine bleach, the metal and the beer flavor should be okay..Right?

Does this sound okay?    


Bleach is corrosive to Stainless.
