Actually, almonds grow in a fruit that looks identical to peaches.

i think fresh almonds look like what i imagine a koala bears scrotum looks like.

i am currently uninsured by choice because my benifits would be too expensive.  einsurance.com is a great option, i am just trying to determine which plan/rates/deductible i want. check it out you can get a good plan for $100/month, factor that into compensation.  i am in no rush as i am healthy and work with doctors who can take care of me when i need it.

next time you have seeded cherrys, crack the pit and eat the seed.  it is very almond like.  that being said, they do contain cyanogenic compounds and can be poisonous in large amounts.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: La Folie

la folie is awesome.  try le terrior, the name is pretentious but the beer is great.  le terrior is like la folie but dry hopped.  stay away from tranatlantique kreik, a real let down.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: is there an easier way?

treat malt extract like you would flour.  mix it with cold water slowly until you get a clump free paste.

holler if you want to meet up or need suggestions euge.  if you like flanders red or kreik nxnw has two amazing examples but they are now hard to get, usually gone in a day.

draughthouse and pinthouse are my faves.  nxnw is great.  check out hopfields and there is a place on west sixth called brew exchange that prices beers based on demand.  not my type of bar but you can get good prices on obscure beers that are usually more expensive elsewhere.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Sour Golden Strong ECY 001

it would probably be best to let it be after pitching the bacteria.  micro oxygenation can/does occur in barrels or most containers over time and can add to the character/flavor but my experience is shaking or airlocks drying out is probably not so good.  taste it and see what you think.
