The Pub / Got a bachelor pad!
« on: December 19, 2013, 11:24:19 PM »
  Finally, found a bachelor pad!! My friend texted me Thursday about it, I looked it Friday, paid the first month and deposite Saturday, and moved in Sunday. Nice one bedroom. Lower level of an old house. It's a very nice place HUGE rooms. Best part, I have a kick a$$ mud room to turn into my brewry!! Just a shame all my gear is in Idaho and I have to start over.
  My friend has totally hooked me up helping me get set up. Monday, she went shopping for me and bought all kinds of household stuff for me that I will need and brought me over dinner.  Tuesday, she shampooed my carpets, put down some rugs, hung new manly curtains in the kitchen and cleaned it top to bottom for me, took my laundry home and washed it, and today she went to pick out paint for me! I think I'm finally living the life again, and I'm getting back to my old Weaze  self.  8)

The Pub / Just checkin' in.
« on: February 02, 2013, 11:06:08 PM »
 Haven't been around much lately. I'm still really into beer, and I still like girls. Just haven't been myself lately. Been on a couple meds for about two weeks to try and get my head screwed back on straight. Been having some pretty heavy depression / anxiety. Nothing enviormental, all chemical (in my head). Got me on happy pills, so I'm hoping I'll be DTF any day now. As of right now, I have no drive, no motivation, no energy, pretty much nothing brings me joy. Basically, no will to go on. Just going through the motions. I'll be back to normal eventually. Dealt with it for a year or so back in my teens. It just decided to crop up again. I'm not posting this for a pity party. I just been out for a while, and didn't want you guys putting up "lost brewer" posters of me, like last time.  ;D

All Things Food / Weinerschnitzle
« on: December 26, 2012, 04:20:38 PM »
 Don't need the how to's of making it. I do a pretty decent weinerschnitzle. I want to know what goes with it. Or, in my case, jagar schnitzle, with a bourbon mushroom cream sauce. I was thinking maybe some pene', and I could drizzle it with the sauce?

The Pub / A changed Weaze
« on: November 06, 2012, 03:32:07 PM »
I'm really doing it. I think. I have an appointment Saturday evening at 6 to get inked. I've been looking for a couple years for the right design. I knew what I wanted, just could not express it. Then, I stumbled onto it last night on YouTube. I'm really stoked and scared crapless  all at the same time. Wish me best, if I go through with it.

The Pub / Have a great Movember!

Who all is growing them with me?

The Pub / Zombie apoclypse survival....
« on: October 29, 2012, 05:12:10 PM »
 So this hurricane got me to thinking, when the zombie apocolypse comes, not if, when, I need to be prepared. What do you guys keep in your BoB's? I'm just working on getting mine together. I carry a backpack with me everywhere I go so its a natural transition. Things like knives and axes I'll have t keep two of. One in Idaho and one on ohio as TSA gets all weirded out by that stuff. I'll also have to get n ready for Holly to keep in her car. If you haven't considered a 72 hour kit, think about it. The zombies ARE coming. Its just a matter of time.

The Pub / view from my window...
« on: October 06, 2012, 11:51:55 AM »
For a couple weeks. Holly and me drug the fifth wheel down to Montpieler, ID for a while. We're set up right next to the creek. I could literally cast out my front door and catch fresh trout. This is the view fro. The kitchen table. We're well stocked with food, beer, and whisky. We have games, books, and all four movies in the lonesome dove series, along with Into The West.Last night, the temp dropped to 6*. But, a toasty 65 in the trailer. E have a good stash of firewood too, for campfires. We're about 20 miles back in from the nearest civilization. A quarter the way back to camp, you loose any trace of cell service. We had to come down to town today for a few supplies, and got wifi while we are eating lunch. Pending any bear attacks, see you all in a few days.

Ingredients / flaked oats
« on: September 30, 2012, 09:45:19 AM »
I'm doing a nut brown tomorrow. Hopefully. My recipe calls for 1# of flaked oats. Because Idaho is a cursed state, I cannot get a hold of flaked oats. Will just plain old Quaker rolled oats work? Is basically just for mouthfeel, right?

Pimp My System / CFC questions
« on: September 23, 2012, 05:50:24 PM »
I've been tossing around the idea of making a CFC. Is a pump necessary, or is gravity feed enough? Also, how long must it be to be effective?

The Pub / bar build update
« on: September 21, 2012, 03:20:43 PM »
 While I wait for my mash to finish, figured I would post a couple pics of the bar after I got it started yesterday. Now, I just have to form, and pour it.

The Pub / bitsy tipsy?
« on: September 19, 2012, 02:24:22 PM »
As I'm told the Germans say. I have a friend who lived in Germany for a few years. He was telling me how they would sit around from late afternoon till late at night eating sausages, playing cards etc... and drinking beer. LOTS of beer. But, he said no one ever got drunk . Buzzed yes, but not drunk. He said the secret was a bowl of I guess candies on the table. Small and white, he said they looked like Pez. He has no idea what they were, or had in them, but they sure did the trick. He said you could drink large amounts of brew without getting drunk. Anyone else hear of such a tale, or know what it might have been?

The Pub / ARGH!!

Avast me hearties! I be wishing ye all have a jolly National Talk Like A Pirate day.

The Pub / Mancave 2.0
« on: August 24, 2012, 12:03:30 AM »
Yesterday, I got back from Ohio, on a six week work trip. Before I left I was teasing Holly about painting my red wall in the mancave  a green. (I've been on a real Irish kick lately) Well, I come home and find this. I'm sure most of you have seen my mancave  pics, so I won't waste space with before pics. Dear god was this little girl busy! There are not words to express to her how much I appreciate what she did for me, or to be able to tell her how much I love her. I had to come here a nd brag about the new mancave  / bar / brewery. And I just want you all to know, I have the best girl in the world!!

This was the red wall. Painted a nice green to remind me of Ireland. Made a shelf for stereo PS3 etc... using an old palate and some chain

My pull out love seat. (For business time  ;D ) She found a bunch o f wooded pallets, took them and painted them black, and here used them to display some of my Marilyn Monroe pics.

This is my recliner sofa. This particular corner had no drywall. Just bar studs and insulation. Had not got around to finishing it after I added the brewery on. She built me a hanging shelf using my old hockey sticks, and displayed my Cabbage Patch baby (had him since I was 5 so shut it!) And my brew-monkey.

She did some dumpster diving and found this chunk of metal, I believe that it is used as a trough to run wiring on, and made a shelf for my beer mugs.

Here, she used an old wooden window frame, chicken wire, eye hooks and chain to make a pot rack for my HLT's.

Another old palate now a shelf to display cool man stuff!

She got me a sweet cabinet off Craig's list with an SS top to store my brew gear on. Grain mill fits nicely. Think I might paint the stand.

Corrugated metal on this wall, just to look awesome!

Another palate to display some of my nicer looking cook books.

More of that metal trough to make bookshelves, and a little SS desk, where I can sit and work on beer recipes.

I have a few loose ends to tie up she could not do. Some trim, and I have to build the concrete bar. Oh, and she also scored me some sweet bar stools at a garage sale. You can see one in the last pic.
   I'm not one who brags, but come on dudes!! Really!?!?! Now, its your turn to tell me all how jealous are of my sweet new pub, and amazing wife!  8)

Oh, and in the bar / brewery, she drywalled and finished the whole thing. It was bare studs, wiring and insulation the last time I saw it.

The Pub / I'm sick of summer.
« on: August 01, 2012, 07:56:51 PM »
 Its been too hot for too long. I've been here in Ohio for the bigger part of summer. So hot here, HVAC /sheet metal work has been unreal. Money has been great though. We figure make it while its there. Who knows what winter may bring. I'm sick of heat. I'm sick of humidity. I miss my wife, my dogs, and my mancave. I miss brewing. Oh, and i had an oxy/ aceteline  torch blow up in my face today. Three more weeks, and I'm home for a good long while. Rant over. Thank you for listening.
