Happy belated.

I'm not concerned about what it can do or the size but I'd love to see some posts on how you people talked their spouse into letting them get one.  That's my only stumbling block today or I'd have one already.

The food coming out of the BGE is amazing. I've stopped using sauces and my rubs have become minimal. Usually salt and pepper with maybe another spice. The flavor of the meat and what the smoker imparts upon it is fantastic enough that really only salt is required.

Think of the fortune you'll save on spices!  ::)

Does she like food?  Does she like it when she doesn't cook said food?  That should be the end of the discussion.

Perfect line of logic there.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: SAFALE-05 Opinions

According to John Palmer solvent-like flavors can be caused by high fermentation temps and oxidation. Or can be leached from cheap plastic.

Draw off a few more glasses and/or wait a few days. See what happens. Sometimes the "sediment" can carry off flavors.

And cook it too long and it gets greasy.

Anyone have any opinions on SAFALE-05?  I just used it in a red ale that tastes like @$$. - it tastes like a beer I recently tasted (Hen's Tooth, an English ale).  I used a lot of hop, but you'd never know it.  Some other people that tried my red ale said it tasted solvent-like.  Not a glowing recommendation, but the truth is what it is.  Perhaps it's not the yeast?

What was your ferm temp? Usually it's on the cleaner side. Nail-polish? Maybe it fermented too warm.

It's snowing here in Delaware as I type. There's about 2" on the ground so far with another 10 to they say.
It's nice to have some snow around the holidays. Watching the Bears beat the Jets. Really can't wait to watch the Eagles play Minnesota tonight. Have the day off the IPA will be flowing.  8)

Snowing in Jersey, too. Watching people in their SUVs drive 40mph down our residental street.

Rocks fit nicely into the center of snowballs.

Gee wonder why nobody wants to live in Jersey.

Of all the reasons, I don't know that this one would be first on my list.

It's just icing on the cake...

What the longest string of quotes here?

Don't change the subject. We're talking about how swell Jersey is.

Sorry. I'm sure Jersey IS swell.

Which exit?
This one here, on the right:,-74.056606&spn=0.04907,0.132093&z=14&layer=c&cbll=40.779031,-74.056728&panoid=K8nQOiraC7QpmqMoOkSyeA&cbp=12,51.68,,0,-5.88

I went left on my last trip.  :-\

I drove south from New York on the Joisey turnpike once on a Friday through rush hour traffic.

Don't even try it.  >:(

Did it way too many times, in a semi. Cured me of doing that for a living...

FTR I've been to Jersey.
Jersey?  Isn't that where the NY football teams play  :-\

Yeah, this is a strange place. I like how people from NJ consider themselves in the suburbs of "the city" and people from "the city" think of NJ as a red-headed stepchild that should've been pushed out to sea on an ice floe when it was born.

"New York City?!  Get the rope!"

People from NJ say "Happy New Years" Wutz up wit dat?

There is only one new year right? OR maybe they figur they are never going to see you again so they extend the happy wish for the rest of your new years.

You know from Jersey when...................You know what a Wawa is, and know the location of at least 15 of them.

Hope everyone has a safe holiday.  8)

You mean Quick Chek, right?

Yeah, WaWa is from PA, they just invaded NJ. In fact Wawa ia a town in PA.,-75.459642&hl=en&sspn=0.017121,0.032015&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Wawa,+Delaware,+Pennsylvania&ll=39.90187,-75.459671&spn=0.000472,0.001321&t=h&z=20&iwloc=A

Think it'll get to one post per page?

Beer Travel / Re: More Amsterdam......

I've been stuck in Amsterdam when it was snowing and icing. There's worse places. Try this:

Supposedly there's a craft beer movement in Holland. But anyway if nothing brew-pubbish is available then find the place that sells the Belgian brews.

That is one hell of kettle! The provenance must be interesting.  :D

I wasn't sure if the kitty was part of the ingredients for some arcane historical brew... ;)
