The Pub / Re: Covers

On two somewhat related notes.
I did not see the movie, but read the book.  My parents gave me the DVD to watch, but my wife wants to read the book and wants me to wait to watch it until she reads it. The opening title you posted was great. I may have to watch it without her.

I am a Zeppelin fan, but they also had not been in my playlist for a while.  I recently heard the Willie Dixon version of I Can't Quit You Baby and that started me listening to them again recently.  Funny how the original version can reinvigorate a passion for a cover... what was older made something old new again....or something like that.

All Grain Brewing / Re: composting spent grain

That's funny. I just saw them for the first time this summer this weekend. I added grain two fridays ago from that brewday and when I went to add our normal compost scraps this weekend, the pile was full of them.   I usually have them earlier.  It may be because it's been such a strange weather year.

I haven’t been around that area in a while but you may want to check out the bars/restaurants in Morristown. You will probably be able to find whatever type of food you want there as it is a bar/restaurant kind of town.  The Office has decent food and a good selection of beers. I think there is one in Summit and one in Morristown.  It’s a small chain so the quality may also depend on the location you go to.

If you are willing to drive 20 minutes out of the way, I would suggest the Cloverleaf Tavern in Bloomfield.   They have decent pub food and a good beer selection.  It can get very crowded, especially on beer appreciation night, which is the first Tuesday of every month. www.cloverleaftavern.com.  Poor Henrys in Montville is supposed to be decent, but I haven’t tried it yet.    Please update this post after you visit. I’d like to hear about some place you tried, especially if its somewhere I haven’t been to.

go online and order yourself some black soldier fly larvae. They will eat that grain up in no time.
Are these hard to get in your compost pile naturally? I must be pretty lucky because I get them every year.  They definitely do their work on grain and are pretty gross.  I will never forget the first time I turned the pile and saw all those big suckers wiggling around.
I thought about starting a earthworm colony for composting purposes. I wonder what spent grain would do to them?
The worms love the grain in my compost bin, I would think they would in a worm colony. It may be hard to keep the colony from going anaerobic though.

I once had too many beers

I got kicked out of the store
For trying to score
With a couple of angry cashiers

It makes me think that its time to brew a bratwurst beer.

Bratwurst in the mash or secondary? ;)

I'm thinking secondary. 8)  Should it be homemade bratwurst as well?
Im thinking raw homemade brats added to the boil.  Remove the brats and Grill them, store them and add them at packaging. That way you dont loose any sausagey goodness.

i used an old nokia for about 5 years until the screen was so beat up it couldn't be seen. i still used it but it infuriated my wife who bought me an iphone 3g.  used that for past 3 years with no problems.
I had an old Lg that was cracking in half and my wife harped on me about using it. I was just going to get another cell phone but she wanted a smart phone so of course if she was getting one, I was getting one. Now I cant live without it. I use it for everything.

If you upgrade to a new (subsidized by verizon) phone, then you have to switch to the new shared data plans. If you buy a phone at full price (currently an Iphone is over 700$) then you can keep the unlimited. This changed on June 28th 2012.-
Not surprised. I figured it was only a matter of time before they started doing that.

Im a fan of habaneros too.  I also like to use scotch bonnets.  I like that they are sweeter than habaneros but still hot. I like to use them especially when making Jamaican beef patties or other Caribbean foods.

I can't imagine how hot they are.  The hottest I'll go is the merciless peppers of Quetzalacatenango....grown deep in the jungle primeval by the inmates of a Guatemalan insane asylum.

- in fact it might be better to do that to keep them in check a tiny bit.
I hope this is the case. I had to do an emergency harvest last night because our town was going to spray for mosquitos and I didnt want the chemicals on my hops, which had to be harvested anyway.  I didnt have time to pick them so I cut the bines to pick the hops later.  We will see next year how they do.

You sure about that? I'm grandfathered in to unlimited data as long as I don't change my plan. The wife and I upgraded to DROID Bionics last year with no issues.
I thought so too.  I dont know how many more times I can drop mine before it breaks.
