I hope you didn't interrupt him while he was chatting online with babes.

If the pro teams from Japan played teams from the US during the regular season and could compete for the World Series Title, I wouldn't have a problem with it.  Instead it's a publicity stunt and seems like a MLB comment on US fans.

/stepping off high horse now/

I'm glad Ichiro had a good game!


I think the dumbest part of this is that both teams have more Spring Training games next week. I guess it's to let them get over jet lag, but it seems ridiculous to play two games that count and then play more practice games.

aroudn 15000 packs to the US, just 7760 east of the mississippi.

I don't think I will be buying one. I hope they make lots of money and whenever I make to belgium I will try it.
That changes everything  ;D

I imagine some of it will hit Chicago, but given the frenzy around rare releases here, I wouldn't try to find it.

I wouldn't pay that, but given they're only releasing 7,760 packs in the US, I doubt I'll even see one.

Desert Edge Brewery and Pub in Salt Lake City is a sentimental favorite of mine. I used to go there when you could get Coors or Bud, and now it's a full brew pub. They only brew 4% ABV beers, though, so they may not appeal to your Northwest palate. I've had some pretty tasty beers there, though.

I haven't been, but I've heard good things about the Bayou in SLC. You can enjoy paying Utah's marked up price for bottled beers, as they don't allow draft over 4% ABV. Utah brewers are doing some good things at that limit, give some a try.

I'll be celebrating finishing up painting my wife's new office by brewing a wit and a rye IPA tomorrow. I usually brew a wit around this time each year so it's ready when it gets warm in May -- it's been over 80 three days this week and a wit would have been most refreshing.

The drinker came first when he/she realized this stuff could be consumed. Probably a result of a dare or starvation. Then came the brewer!

Oh come on. I know you guys want to say it's a consumable art form... ;)
New Holland Brewing in Michigan used to use "Art in fermented form" as their slogan  ;)

I'm trying to imagine if I would ever describe any electronic device as a life changing event. :D

Questions about the forum? / Re: Go Down

Well, I'll be damned...logging in as a mere mortal, I have the same "go down" problem.  I've reported it to the AHA IT folks.

Well then the solution is obvious. Just make everyone an admin.


It would seem it's the theme. Can you let us mere mortals have the option to use the curve theme?

The Locks are great. Then go for a beer  at Ray's Boathouse. Even better if you can time it for sunset over the Olympics.

Woodland Park Zoo is good too.Just up the road is Red Mill and their killer burgers. I have dreams of their chile verde burger.

I'm not going to NHC, but hope to be back in Seattle  in May, while my wife's at a conference. Verde burgers will be consumed

Beer Recipes / Re: SN Bigfoot Clone?
« on: February 11, 2012, 08:28:17 PM »
This came pretty close, I think. People who tried it told me they thought of Bigfoot, before I said anything about the inspiration. I pulled all this from the SN site

1.097 OG
15# pale malt
1# Crystal 80. Use a medium English for best results.
(1 # dry extract because my efficiency sucked)

60 min
2 oz Chinook  13% alpha

15 min
1 oz Cascade 5.5% alpha
1 oz Centennial 8.6 % alpha

2 min
1 oz Cascade 5.5% alpha
1 oz Centennial 8.6 % alpha

Dry Hop with last 14 days

1 oz Cascade
1 oz Centennial
1 oz Chinook

I pitched on a yeast cake of Wyeast 1272, but 1056, WLP 001, US-05 would be the closer match.

Revolution is my favorite place in Chicago these days. Bacon popcorn, for goodness sake! It's also outside of the tourist zone, so you can get a feel for what the rest of the city is like. And easily reached on the El.

I never RTFM so I didn't realize hanging upside down shortens life. But those in my basement that are always on last longer than incandescents, and I buy the cheapies at Menards.

RIS on Monday. I'll try not to leave any taps open, unlike the last time I brewed this recipe when I ran off the first half-gallon or so onto the floor  :-[
