Does anyone else think it's awesome that we have a three page thread dedicated to back scratchers? Cause I think it just rocks!!  ;D

Hey we gotta have priorities in life... ;D

I've busted some smoked Pork-loin out that I vac sealed on 10/9/09. Looks as good as it did a year ago and no burn. Hops I bought 2 years ago look the same as the day I got them. Really one can't go wrong with a vacuum sealer. Unless you buy the wrong one. Avoid Seal a Meal. Buy a Foodsaver

So far I've located: Bierkeller, Muntons, and John Bull. Thought I'd seen more in the past.

It just happens. I've got an out of the way place where bottles and the odd keg gets stashed. Peek in there and it's "oh I still got some of that Saison left? Or keg of Cider!!"  ;D

My friends would drink all my beer if I let them. If they ever pitched in for ingredients I could brew more.

I had to swear off Belgian beers for a long time. Something about them irritated my GI tract. Now the occasional one is OK. I've had the three Belgian gluten-free beers. Don't remember the name off hand but "not bad" would have been too kind of a description. I couldn't finish one of them! :D

Well if you're asking...

Try turning up the crock-pot a bit to cook the dry beans at a harder simmer.

Otherwise.

I'm of the soak school. Rinse and soak for at least 16 hours. Even for the pressure cooker. Then everything goes in for 30 minutes for regular beans like pinto or garbanzo. For a softer bean like Navy or Great Northern then 7-10 minutes is just fine. Saute onions and garlic first if you like I don't bother any more. I find it takes at least 45 minutes in the PC if the beans are dry. However, that's pretty good compared to traditional simmer methods.
 
Chumley might want to soak his beans at home first. Then a ziplock bag for the hydrated beans. That's his preparation LOL. However, his goulash looks pretty tasty too.

Which brings to mind pork butt, sliced onion and apple topped off with a can or two of Campbell's Golden Mushroom soup can be done in a crock-pot. It's fork tender in eight hours. Salt and pepper baby. ;) On rice or potatoes... OMG!

Ahh! A 2.5 gallon corny. I kegged up 12 gallons last night. Instead of racking the excess into PET bottles and carbing it up for tasting it went into the 2.5 which there's room for in the kegerator right now.

It's a Bitter. About 18 SRM and one month old. Gettting some yeast bite, a little harsh alcohol and hop bitterness. A bit rough for being on the cake for nearly 30 days. It'll smooth out.

Am I the only one that oftentimes chooses a beer solely upon the state of my sinuses?  ??? Cedar, Ragweed, mold etc really disrupts my senses. Suddenly beers become insipid. Acidic. Why do I drink this stuff again...?

But sometimes a bolder beer shines through. Rarely though. Save the expensive stuff for better days and go for the homebrew shandy. :P

If by "it" you mean the Tremens, I don't recommend popping a 750 of it this late . . . but you know your schedule better than I do :)

The Great Divide Tripel!  :D No DT for me tonight. I have some new homebrew to QC. Just tapped the 2.5 I racked last night and force-carbed this AM.

These are great! Your supermarket probably has them or similar. Dump one or two in the CP w/water and go hunting. What the hey- throw a pack of sausage and an onion in there too.  :)
