Equipment and Software / Brew day timer
« on: December 02, 2011, 10:13:13 AM »
I was digging around over at TBN, and found this little gem. Anyone else who has a brewery computer might like. I have not used it yet, but it looks really sweet!!

Equipment and Software / Heat stick
« on: November 30, 2011, 04:54:01 PM »
I'm sitting here at my bar looking at my indoor electric turkey fryer when it hits me..........All that element is, is a 110v heat stick. It'll bring 3 gal of oil to 400* in about an hour. So why shouldn't it bring 8 gal of strike water to 165 or so in that same hour? Who here uses a 110v heat stick to heat strike water? What size element are you using, and what kind of times and temps are you getting? Thanks!

The Pub / Brewery / bar done!!
« on: November 26, 2011, 09:05:29 PM »
 For now....It's all ready for me to brew in. I'm on hold now till I get some more funds. Here's the thus far finished product. Kinda hard to get pics of, due to it being not a real big space. Hopefully tomorrow, I'll get a counter top, and sink in. Maybe even get a burner mounted.

The Pub / Change for a buck?
« on: October 14, 2011, 08:56:58 PM »
 Just spent a little less than two weeks with Holly, and some good friends in the mountains of Mout Pillar, Idaho. Deer season opened. This is what we came back with. Ok, I admit, it's not mine. MY buddy shot it. A nice 2x3 buck, mule deer. I've never hunted in my life. Didn't hae a license, or carry a gun. Holly is a hunter though. She just missed a real nice buck. It was right off the road about 100' in front of her. She didn't take the shot, because she could not tell it was a buck from where she was standing. Better safe than sorry. I had a great time. My truck really proved itself, too. Made me feel so manly!  You better belive next year, I'll be packing heat!  8)  More pics to come later.

The Pub / Finally happened.
« on: September 25, 2011, 01:01:02 PM »
 Mrs Weaze finally got the boot from her job after near 13 years. Bossman said he just can't afford her anymore. She is really down in the dumps. I told her to enjoy it. Take some well deserved time, and suckle the teat of government cheese. She earned it. She has twelve years as a licensed insurance agent. She will have no problem finding work when she is ready, even in Idaho. Sure sucks to see her so dowwn in the dumps though.
 But, on an unrelated note, she finally got a butt hat! Call them trashy if you want, but they drive me crazy!!  ;D

The Pub / Airline surcharge....
« on: August 17, 2011, 09:31:42 PM »
I'm kicking around the idea of heading to Japan to volunteer with the rebuilding work. Found a great price for a rounrtrip of 535$. Go to total it, and Delta adds on a 650$ "International surcharge". Never heard of that one. What gives? :-\

The Pub / FIRE! FIRE!
« on: August 16, 2011, 11:48:27 AM »
 Had my police scanner on yester early afternoon. Around 1:30 p.m. I hear  "Yeah, I think I'm gonna need another engine up here. The wind is pretty strong from the north, I don't think I can contain it myself."  About 3 hours later, I walk on the front lawn an see this!!



 Holly was literally standing in our front yard when she took this pic. As the crow flies, it's about a mile from the house. Turns out, a couple kids were playing with matches and toilet paper. I've been able to count three C-130's dropping fire retardent, and about six small planes dropping water. There is one giant helicopter with a tank and snorkle dropping water, and a smaller one with a bucket. Nurmerous trucks, etc... I can't imagine the cost involved. So far, about 1200 acres have burned, and they have it 25% contained. That I know of, one house has been lost.
  It's kind of a sick thing, but it has been very cool to watch. I mean, this is happening in my front yard, making drips right in front of my eyes! The planes are in a flight path right over my house! I have all the fire departments, the Beareau of Land Management, and the Pocatello airport all programmed in my scanner, so I can hear it all go down in real time.

The Pub / Just have to say thanks...
« on: August 07, 2011, 11:44:56 AM »
To my beautiful wife, Holly. I really think I'm married to the greatest girl on earth. We have so much fun together. She has the kindest, warmest heart. A great sense of humor, and she really puts up with me. She's even wanting to help me brew a batch of porter next weekend. Even understands me. Seems like since I got back from my last trip from Ohio, to work, for some reason, we've gotten so much closer. I just can't think of much better than those mornings we sit on the poarch of the mancave together, drinking our coffee. Even a trip to the gorcery store. Fixining meals together, eating together, and spending time thanking our creator. Going to sleep each night with her next to me, and waking up in the morning by her. I'm in the middle of a pretty intense two weeks right now (for respect of board rules I will not go into what) and each evening when I get home, she there waiting for me. I'm really a fortunate guy. I just felt the need to push all my macho crap aside, and tell the world how I feel about her. Now, back to the beer and ass-hattery. Thank you for listening.

The Pub / Weazemobile Now with pic!
« on: June 13, 2011, 09:24:52 PM »
 Sold my Sammi tonight. Pretty cool, it was the first dude that even asked about it, and he only talked me down 100$.
 
 Pretty sure I found my next ride. I went and looked at the truck I posted a pic of a couple weeks ago, and I gave it a solid "meh".... Stopped to look at a buddies truck on the way home, and this is the one! It's a 1991 Silverado, 4x4, 1 ton, 454. Body is in great shape. No cancer, just a couple spots on the hood where the clear coat is lifting. THe drivers seat has a pretty big tear in it, but nothing a seat cover won't fix. It's got a receiver hitch, a ball for a goose neck, in the bed, and it's wired for lights and trailer brakes with the brake controller installed. This sucker is one bad boy! Color is not exactly my thing, but, what ya gonna do? Oh, it also has a ladder rack that I should be able to sell for a few hundred.
  So, any body got anything that needs pullin'?  ;D
  (pics to come)

The Pub / Read any good book lately?
« on: June 13, 2011, 04:07:09 PM »
 Been a while since we had a book thread. Just thought I would check in and see if anyone has come accross some must reads.

  I literally just finished Vince Flynn's "Extreme Measures" like five minutes ago. Very good read. If you haven't read Vince Flyn, do. It was my first by him, and I have two more waiting. Recently, I read "Impact" by Douglas Preston. It was ok. Been powering my way through A bunch of James Patterson. "I Alex Cross" was my last, and "Cross Fire". Both were great. I'm about halfway through Alex Cross's Trial. It's not to bad. And, waiting for me my next trip to Ohio in July, I have "One Second After".
  What's everyone else up to?

The Pub / Don't know how I did it.
« on: June 13, 2011, 12:02:51 PM »
Live in Ohio that is....I just got home yesterday. I never thought I would be so happy to get home to Idaho. The temperature and humidity SUCKED!!! One morning, it was 6:30, 80*, and 80% humidity! Can't imagine I was ever used to that. So nice to be back where it's dry, and a balmy 65*. At least the heat was good for work. I cleaned up! Now, I go six weeks off, till I have to go to work for 2 two again. My life rocks!
