I'm doing chipotle honey bbq wings and a bunch of sous vide burgers (50/50 chuck/shortrib),

wait, wait, wait - gotta share a recipe for both of those  ;D - I've never had a sous vide burger, but I love shortribs and I love chuck how can I go wrong.

How 'bout splitting this thread into "Overpaid Prima-donna Football" (NFL) and "Real Football" (NCAA)?  Although I guess the "overpaid" part might factor into real football if your Reggie Bush or any member of the UNC team :)

okay so to get it started:

why couldn't your receiver hold on to the ball so we wouldn't have to listen to "should Boise State be in the National Championship" game all year long as they walk through the remainder of their cupcake schedule?   ;) ;D

Fall is almost upon us - concurrent with the football thread in the pub, I was curious what everyone is planning for this Sunday's festivities

I am going to go way off the reservation from what I've been eating lately (an informal diet of sorts) and get back to some good ole comfort food:

I'm going to do 2 or 3 racks of st louis style ribs on my weber using a recipe I'd seen from Bobby Flay recently:

some home made baked mac and cheese and then I'm still thinking of the others, maybe collard greens and corn bread.

NG Pils, Dunkel, IPA, Wit, and RIS are all on tap, and I've got many commercial Festbiers in the fridge along with some other goodies.  

I may have to call in sick on Monday  :D ;) ;D

I'm suggesting that the maltiness will make it seem fuller bodied so to mash low to constrain that character.

precisely.  and richardt, if you don't want to do a step mash, i'd recommend 147-8df single infusion for the purpose of maximixing fermentability.

Doesn't say anything about my Titan's either. That said, overall it looks pretty believable. All except Pittsburgh. That team is going to start out with major problems and I think they will have a hard time recovering. I think they have as much of a chance to win a WC as the Titans. And I am hoping the Titans are going to surprise every one the way they did 2008/9 season.  8)


I betcha the Jags steal at least one if not both games from them this year, which doesn't portend for a playoff run. ;D

Still getting used to Gators AT (after Tebow), but all should be well until the end of October on that front.

Just looking for improvement on the Jags, no expectations beyond that.

Green Bay vs. Ravens in the Superbowl is my prediction.

spray it off with the hose after every use, put in boiling wort with 15 left to go, never been an issue  ;)

I made an all Vienna IPA last fall that was a huge hit at our Oktoberfest - if you want, I'll dig out the recipe - or I think I've posted in on NB a few times.

Seems like every once in a while I run across someone who just doesn't like rye beers.  Not a big know how I feel about wheat beers!

well, if the beer tastes like the wort does, we have no problems here!  little efficiency woes which is odd for me (I'm german afterall) and hit  1.068-9 but I actually drank the whole wort sample!

Got high hopes!

BTW - I used Rahr Pale Ale malt for the first time - I used 1.038 as the expected - what do you guys use?

Wow....if I don't make it every 4 weeks or so, I get in trouble!

That's about how it is with my regular house IPA, though 8 weeks instead of 4 due to batch size  ;) :D - giving the rye IPA another chance - haven't liked many rye beers I've had, so I'm giving this one another chance.

Will let you know how it goes.

Indians, more specifically Hindus; dont eat meat. Because their belief is that killing of any kind is wrong.

Im not a vegetarian but sometime I wonder.

I have dogs and they bring me alot of joy.  I also have cats.  Yes...I am animal lover.

So this issue is a very difficult one for me to handle sometimes.  

Cap....I can definitely relate.

I can definitely relate as well, for the same reasons Ron mentioned.  My wife is a vegetarian.  I eat her meals occasionally - it ain't so bad, but there are sometimes these cravings that a red bean quesadilla is not going to satiate.

Go see someone do it end-to-end before doing it yourself, though.  A lot of what you do is visual, so you need to know what "looks right."

While that's undoubtedly the best way to do it, that's not the way I did it.  I'd never seen anyone do AG before I started.  I just read a lot of books and the usenet group rec.crafts.brewing and jumped in.  Once I was done, it was kind if like "wow, is that all?".  The point being that if you can't brew with someone else to learn, don't let it stop you.

nowadays its very easy to find a solid youtube video (think Kai) series that can show you the steps in case you don't have a friend to show you the ropes.

FWIW, I would have gone all grain my first batch as well, but I had a brew partner who insisted we do extract first.  He lasted 3 batches before his ADHD took him elsewhere.  He loves coming to drink my beer though.

back to back 12gal batches on Saturday morning - DC Rye IPA and House IPA.

Yes, that's right Denny, Rye IPA - figure its time to give it a whirl again after about ~4 years.

Chuck Norris chills hot wort just by staring at it.
