I'm not about to go argue with a store or department manager anymore... it would probably end up on youtube.   :D ???

It might even get autotuned and break into the pop charts!

That was fookin awesome! He's right about the walking. Especially here in the South. Cars and AC's the way to go...

Ordered an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S i9000. Should be here in a few days. Did the research. Not enough evidently, but I got the gist of the phone off of xda-developers (thanks!).

I'm mainly interested in what the phone already brings to the table, access-point etc, but the option to root and flash the phone with custom ROMs remains a priority. Turns out to flash a Samsung device one still needs windows to run a program called "odin" even though the phone's running linux. Grrr.

Don't even have a copy of windows. Well now I do thanks to Piratebay. ;) Also installed Virtualbox and then installed an unattended-install stream-lined version of XP. Woo. I'm amazed at how well this works and how well XP runs in this environment.

Hopefully, will be hitting this site and others with my Samsung soon. Already have a buyer lined up for the iPhone 3gs 32g.

I'll get bored soon enough and switch phones again...

Downloading the mp3 now. Thanks.

I'll listen to it while brewing today. After all. I'm all about the Brown ale at this point. When I get my recipes nailed down and getting close with my latest I might try some blending.

LOL Denny's now a "brewmaster"... just like the rest of us. ;D

It is fun How about next year at this time when more people have thousands of posts? Couldn't there be some "hidden levels" albeit with amusing titles? For example such as @ 4000 might produce something witty and random based on the high post count.

Decent article if a little dated. Looks like I will be buying my Newcastle in the future. I'm just not prepared at this time to take on blending.

All good points. Then why have the system in the first place?

Anyone have a recipe? Recently rekindled a fondness for Newcastle.


Beer Recipes / Re: brewing light beer

If you are willing to brew with extract a nice refreshing light beer can be made easily. I prefer Amber or Pale- even Dark malt can be used. Starting gravity of 1.035 and try to hit 1.008-1.010. Maybe try substituting some of the extract for cane sugar will help get it down. Hop in the 20's and it'll be plenty bitter. A high flocculating yeast like S-05 and served cold most people won't be able tell it's not a Lager. Won't taste Commercial Light. ;D But the calories should only be about 120.

Grain is more complicated. Extract is simple for this.

This is a good thing. Beer stays more stable and the shipping weight is decreased. At a minmum it won't get light struck. What I want to see is a 24oz can of Arrogant Bastard!

I can get the Modus Hoperandi but expensive.

I use RO water and it lasts for months. Usually, I just do one gallon at a time. Had dead bugs and stuff floating in it before and it still worksed extremely well. I can't say the same for Iodophor. I just use that for bottling.

This has been niggling at me for a while. Considering how prolific some of us can be. Aren't some of these levels set a little low? Maybe the intermediate like Brewer & Brewmaster should be at least 1000 posts or more?

I just can't shake that it might be a little intimidating for new members when so many members will display "Brewmaster". Maybe make the requirement to transition from "Assistant-brewer" to "Brewer" to "Brewmaster" a little more realistic.

Not to take away titles from anyone- I'd gladly give mine up. Just an idea.

I was going to suggest Central Market in Alamo Heights but figured you've got one already lol. I think the selection there is probably the best in the city except for Hills and Dales. And CM is close to downtown.

The problem with SA is one can spend their time Downtown- which is fine, but all the other great stuff requires driving. Lots of driving and a knowledge of the city. Not so conducive to pub crawling. :(

Oh, and there's a Lion and the Rose a block from CM. I like their atmosphere, food and selection.

Beer Travel / Re: Amsterdam

I've been there many times but in my younger formative years.

Recently one of my traveling friends told me that they serve beer in tiny glasses and will keep filling them until you place a coaster over the top. He says it's annoying but is offset by the beer prices being cheap.

True? Not sure.
