Other Fermentables / First Soda Brew Day
« on: September 04, 2011, 07:05:55 PM »
My son asked if we could make soda since I brew beer all the time and I thought it was a great idea! I bought a couple packs of gnome soda extract (root beer and vanilla creme) and brewed the creme soda today.

He helped me with the whole process (which was easy peasy) and it didn't take long at all, can't wait to try it!

I highly recommend it if you have kids, its easy and fun to do and only took a few minutes. He is really excited about bringing some to school to share with his friends.

I invited him to my brewery, if he shows up that should be enough to convince/encourage/convert him. Assuming he likes my beer.  ;) I also shouldn't accuse the guy of drinking Bud Light. He was buying a double wide of Sutter Home at the time. ::)

we affectionately refer to that as Stagger Home

we're about 15min from the ocean and all i can say is meh, I've been thru much worse. Other than some wind and rain it was quite unspectacular. never lost power, no flooding, nothing.

I did have to clean some branches out of the driveway tho!

11) marry a woman person who loves beer.
Not all brewers would chose to marry a woman - example, Kathryn Porter ;) ;D

woops, you're absolutely right, my apologies!

gearing up for the hurricane here on the jersey shore, water, food, flashlights, batts, etc etc.  should be a good one.

on a related note, i went surfing *during* hurricane Gloria back in 85? 86? Took me 45min of constant paddling to get out past the breakers. rode one 12-14ft wave (the face was double that), wiped out near the end of the ride and spent over 3 min underwater until i reached down and grabbed my leash and pulled the board down so it floated me back up. good times. gooooooooood times.

very very cool, I'd like to order the set of 3 please!

About 15 yrs agos I was at an SCA event and commissioned a utensil set (knife, fork, spoon) that had the same twist as your opener. I still have them but they are mostly decoration now. It was awesome standing there watching as they were created, the smells, the sounds and the sheer amount of craftsmanship was amazing.

sounds like you had a great day and it shows!

I've been know to put American on ham. Especially a hot ham and cheese. But, I do feel ya on the swiss. either way, great sounding sandwich. I really was pulling for the smoked turkey with cheddar and bacon. It was a nice dream though.

Ah, now if we're talking a BREAKFAST roll, that's entirely different. Hot ham + melty american cheese + egg? Oh yeah. Add some bacon. That's the stuff.

Since i'm from jersey i'm going to have to trump that with a Porkroll Egg & Cheese with salt, pepper & ketchup on a hard roll. Porkroll is also known as Taylor Ham for those unfamiliar.

* Yeah, that happened... Don't judge me.

With more input from my kids...

Before you go into the bathroom you're an American.
When you come back out of the bathroom you're an American.

What are you while you're in the bathroom?

You're a peeing.

on your way to the bathroom, when you really have to go, you're russian

I was in the middle of eating a sandwich when the room started moving, ......

  What kind of sandwich was it?

ham & cheese on a roll! :D

Bavarian, Honey, or black forest? And what type of cheese? We need more details on the roll too. FWIW, aboutthat time, I was eating a strawberry fluffer-nutter, with a bottle of Kilt Lifter to wash it down.

just 3 slices of regular ole french style ham (crumpled not folded), 2 slices of yellow american cheese (folded), helmann's mayo (both top & bottom) on an italian roll (untoasted but cut hinge-style, longways), served on a white plate with a plain white napkin (folded corner-to-corner) with a big hot cup (stoneware) of coffee (fresh ground costa rican!), milk & sugar, 2 tsp.

Later in the afternoon I popped open a bottle of Founder's Centennial IPA (just to keep this sorta beer-related)

:)
