The Anova Nano keeps popping into my feed. Might have to pick one up after release when it goes on sale for veggies or small meals.

Finished off the bottle of Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style last night. I just never truly enjoyed this one. At 115 proof it was too hot for neat and even a cube didn't quite tame the beast. At $60 there are better Bourbons for less.

Not sure we have discussed 1897 BIB from Old Forester. I did not enjoy it nearly as much as the 1870 Original Batch.

No, my closest milestone is tonight we are going to an Anniversary party for a brewery. They are celebrating their 22 year and IIRC the first party we attended was year 5. That would make tonight year 18 for attending.

I almost forgot about it. We were thinking of a trip somewhere over the July 4 holiday so I put it out of my mind. My wife asked me last week if we were going and of course we are!!! What is interesting is most people do not know, nor attend, this party. It celebrates the first place and date the beer was served.

Ran Drew's chicken at 151F for an hour for four boneless skinless breasts in two packages. We'll see how the results are once my wife takes one to work tomorrow.

Last time I checked there was no market share grab against wine and spirits. Makes it sounds like a finite market.

Time to play the lottery!

I had a few days where nothing was going right. Figured Karma was biting me in the butt for something. Then a few days later the stars aligned. Some days you're the windshield, some days you're the bug. ;)

You've not been able to find Elijah Craig? In NC and SC it is everywhere. A great value IMO.

We interview Bob Pease of the BA about this on the podcast coming out next Wed. 7/5

Awesome.  I was hoping that the BA would do a label ID like this.  Hopefully brewers will get on board with it.


I am probably in the minority, but I think it sucks. After reading it is understandable why the bottle is upside down, but how many people are going to take the time to read about it. It depicts a negative IMO with the bottle position. Kinda like the old Olympia label with the Good Luck horseshoe with all the luck spilling out.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Cost of a Sixer?
« on: June 24, 2017, 03:51:57 PM »
Most sixers of craft in my area run $8.99 to $12.99. Often I can get the Sierra Nevada standards at $11 per 12 pack with a coupon. I bought a 24 can case of Yuengling for $15 yesterday with a coupon. I'll probably not do that again as the beer almost bores my pants off. I'd much prefer to get PBR at essentially the same price.

FWIW - the recipe is a little salty. I think if we make it again I will cut it by at least half.

My wife had told me to stop purchasing beer a short while back and I had obliged. Tonight she told me I could release the hounds. OMG I am itching to head to the beer store!!!

Oakland was funny. We were instructed to not walk in a particular direction while there.
