We are going to bring in food trucks(trailers) to provide food and encourage call ins at our tap room. This may be the way the "Garage Breweries" compete with the Brewpubs.

The bird was a our own pastured broad breasted white. I got all 10 to live to full size. Not bad for a $3.89 and 16 weeks.

The best wild hog I had was a bar boar that my roomate shot while deer hunting. That was some great eating. We did a have for the superbowl that year, I still drool thinking about it!

Our pork is raised by our friends a tamaworth/Large Black cross. It is very good pork. Not the store bought the junk. Just saying. Find a good reputable hog grower if you can't kill your own.

Great way to raise your kids that way! That is cool you brought the kids out for some hunting!

Everything went well, finished cooking a bit early! It was like cutting into a wet sponge. It was wonderful.

I got the Acer Iconia A500 about six weeks ago. Which one is yours?

With a usb hub I plug a keyboard and wireless mouse into it. Then I use a $3 walmart foldable picture holder to hold the tablet upright.

Damn thing is pretty polished. Fast and snappy. Battery lasts a long time. Wifi and Bluetooth works flawlessly. Plug it in via HDMI and I'm looking at the tablet on my 50" flatscreen. :o

Could replace my laptop. Almost.

I don't look good on a 50" flat screen though, like a bucket of lard!

I rely on the thermometer on my roaster, gene cafe.

I think crack depends on the process rather than the temperature, but we are roasting in a differernt way. An apples to oranges roasting method.

I see, your roaster is probably measuring the temp of the roaster rather than emerged in the beans. I can certainly see that being much hotter than the bean temp.
It is measuring the heat at the front part of the chamber, to describe it it is like a hair dryer from hell. the glass of the chamber holds alot of heat so I think the beans get the actual heat but more of a wash of heat rather than the constant of a oven or the like. Like brewing beer it(time and temp) depends on the process.

Sorry we are a 3 hour flight away. But we are both unemployed displaced workers who are making it happen to get a brewery going, both of us are supported by our wives, etc your producer would not like the premise for a couple extra hours in the air. Sucks for you! See you in the Funny papers!

a half barrel at $450 per served as a pint is optimistic. How many pints can you sell at 3.75. How many hours are you open, what are you paying for that?
Who is pouring and are you making the local bars(customers) mad because you are cutting them out with your tap house, cut your hours (less money) and sell to bars cut your margin. The story is, it is a tough business, It will take a full time job to get the part time pay. If you can do it all the better and when we meet I will toast a pint with you.
