It helps when your BIL is (was) a spirits distributor.
Maybe I'll use it in airlocks.
Did Abe ever visit NOLA?
He passed through in a Union ironclad en route to Africa after surviving the assassination attempt, but I doubt they stopped, for obvious reasons.
Wow, that's odd... I thought he flew to Africa on Air Force One.
Stuff you should never do....
Take a sleeping pill and a laxative at the same time!Freaky. This just happened to me this morning. Except we don't have a spare.Read right after the post above it, this takes on a whole new meaning.
Gingerman in NY (www.gingerman-ny.com) is also pretty cool - I travel there for business a few times a year and that is usually my hangout - will try to find the Blind Tiger next time.You won't regret that decision. Gingerman is nice, but not intimate like Blind Tiger.
What's the recipe for the spaetzle, I always have trouble getting them to hold together and not turn into a pile of goo.Our local German restaurant (and good beer bar) uses chicken stock instead of water for theirs. I don't know if that affects the consistency, but they taste good.
but I hope the bottle law changes first (no beer in bottles larger than 12 oz).
I'm ambivalent as to when, but I think this is a great idea Drew. Thanks for organizing the meetup, and providing free copies of your book and special forum t-shirts to everyone.
another vote for 2 weeks fermentation. Even after reaching projected FG, the yeast will still appreciate the extra time to clean up after themselves.Me three on the 2 weeks and the gelatin.
I watched Daniel Day Lewis in The Gangs of New York again today. What an awesome movie!

I judged a contest in Champaign IL (BUZZ Boneyard Brewoff) and entered some beers. My kriek got a first place and third in BOS. I was pretty pleased with this, especially since Jeff Sparrow was judging the category. It is my second time entering a contest, and this beer got a second the other time I entered it.
Enjoyed judging three flights too, and I happened to help judge the categories that produced the first and second place BOS. First was a Munich Helles and second was a British Mild, both brewed by the BUZZ Club's own Anthony Benjamin. I think that means I can tell a good beer when I taste it.
Last part of my brag, I won a stirplate and the two volume set of De Clerck's books in the raffle. That was one heck of a haul.
Other than a slight hangover this morning, it was a banner weekend.
