All Things Food / Re: Looking for a good ginger beer recipe
« on: February 06, 2017, 08:48:17 AM »
At one time I was making ginger beer using the GBP and it was delicious, but my plant never grew and I could not keep up drinking the stuff as fast as it would make. I suggest you give it a whirl as it is cheap and easy.

A couple of my links are dead as it an old site and I forget how many total batches I made back in the day. I know I quit documenting at 10.

Here are some new links:

And of course just google Ginger Beer Plant

The new bottle of 12 year old blended scotch whiskey from Costco is delicious.  Complex, layered flavors, and smooth.  The best of the three I have tried.

Snagged one of these. Seem to recall it was $38 for the handle. Very nice glass, much better than the cheaper half gallon. Of course the cheaper half gallon grew on me over time and has now gone to recycling. ;)

I had Hopscape last night. It was like having sex in a canoe!

I'd drink it again if it was free or if I was extremely thirsty and needed to rehydrate...and it was free of course.

The Pub / Sierra Nevada Recall

Several brands packaged in Mills River in December/January are under voluntary recall by SN. Apparently the bottle could break in some manner causing the piece of glass to fall into the bottle.

My worst two are:
Afternoon Delight by Starland Vocal Band
Horse With No Name by America

I cringe whenever I hear either!

It does have a bit of sweetness. Hit it again in a few days to see if the perception changes, I like it neat.

Then that link brought me to SKU - whiskey blogger.

That is one hell of a list.

And a quick way to tell if something you are drinking is made somewhere completely different! ;)

I like craft cocktail bars like that who make their own ice slabs. The only downside is sometimes it is difficult to drink the drink around the chunk of ice. I was at one who had this contraption for making the round ball ice and it slowed getting a drink down to a crawl and eventually they ran out of ice to use in the ball maker. Not a fan of gimmicks which lead to slow service.

Costco Scotch info

Turns out the nasty solventy character of the $18 handle of Costco Blended lessened after a few glasses were poured out the the bottle opened for a short while. Turns out it ain't a bad glass so I won't be pouring it out. However I am not sure I'll buy another.

2001 a Space Odessy had a good soundtrack.

But the most notable song was written in 1896 ;)

If you are talking was ONLY a soundtrack written for a movie then you won't be left with much since most have a song or two written for it and the rest is from elsewhere. If it had to be one performed for a movie then I'll take When Harry Met Sally as I have played that CD many, many times over the years.

Take The Wall for instance. The album was 1979 and the movie was 1982.
