I thought Seattle would win, but not like this! 

Best commercial was the Bud commercial w/ the soldier coming home.

Dry Dock is about 10 mins from my house and their Apricot Blonde is fantastic!  I'm not a big fruit beer fan, but this one won me over.  They add apricot purée 3-5 days after fermentation begins and adds apricot extract at canning/ kegging.  Northern Brewer has their recipe and kit on their website .

I love cast iron and I have a bunch of different cast irons for my kitchen, camping to making jambalaya for 50 people.  I got rid of all my non stick skillets and now have a few ceramic skillets.

Like the ceramic Dutch oven, the ceramic skillets heat evenly and are non stick.  I actually like the ceramics better than stainless.

I still think there should be an official "Giving him the business down there" penalty in the NFL  ;D

Here's another great "giving him the business" call.

The Pub / The BEST "Best Beer in the World" list!
« on: January 18, 2014, 10:09:13 PM »
A few yrs back my wife and I were camping in Rocky Nat'l Park and decided in a quick 3 mile hike.  As we were hiking, we kept looking at the map and adding a mile here and there.  12 Miles and 6 hrs later, we made it back to camp.  Reached in the cooler and downed a few Coors Lts.  Those are the best beers I've ever had.

Edit:  every time we share this story, my wife jokingly asks if we should change the beer to something like Dry Dock Apricot Ale so we don't get laughed at.

If it were it were not for PCs, I would have to find another field to work in.  I've moved many of the companies I support to Macs, however some still depend on Windows based software for their business and are "stuck" with Windows systems.

I personally prefer Macs, but you can still use PCs to do great things.  That being said, I feel Macs are better for most applications, and for some of the reasons Keith mentioned above.  The only area that I can think of where PCs are better than Macs is probably gaming.

I did like Windows 7, but hate Windows 8, especially from a troubleshooting aspect. 

Now when it comes to laptops, I still get PCs for myself, but that's mainly due to pricing.  I personally only use my laptop for work.  My wife has a 2-yr-old Toshiba Win 7 laptop that's been great and hasn't had any issues.

It's funny, once I get clients using Macs, I rarely hear from them unless there is network or server issues.  I get at least a 1/2 dozen calls a week due to security issues (virus/ spyware infections) with Windows systems.  I don't even install security software on my own Mac or on my client's Macs and haven't had a single security issues w/ a Mac (going on. 7 yrs!).  Macs aren't immune to viruses or spyware, but a user would have to really f-up to infect a Mac.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Best yeast for a RIS

I've made a couple of imperial stouts that came out really well.  I used US-05 and 1056.  I may give 1450 a try next time.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast starter qty
« on: January 07, 2014, 03:33:22 PM »
Don't think you need to smack the pack that early.  Actually, for making a starter, you could probably smack it right before you pitch the yeast.  I usually smack my Wyeast packs about an hr before I pitch it into the starter.

Breakfast tacos w/ green chili or shrimp n' grits.  This works for me.
