Oh it's one thing or the other. Now it'll be Christmas ads bombarding us from every angle for the next seven weeks.
Yeah, but the Groundhog's Day ads aren't nearly as annoying :)

You never hear "Punxsutawney Phil lied last year and said there would be 6 more weeks of winter.  Why would you support a liar?"

I seriously had never heard of that before, I really though I made it up.  I should have known better :)

Hoist a pint to celebrate the (temporary) end of the political ads!

Come on!!  The presidential election is exactly 2 years away...how much of a hiatus do you expect to get? :)
A month or two?  Please?   :-\   ;D

I think, like a lot of people, I was both relieved and furious to find out it was all a hoax.   >:(

...and the $100K+ price tag for multi-county search and rescue efforts...

When it was all unfolding- I sat riveted watching the tv- one of the experts said they don't charge for search and rescue because if they did it might discourage people from reporting real emergencies. True? I don't know but if they're being charged for it I guess it's warranted in this case!
If the kid had actually been in the balloon or if he wasn't but they really believed her was I doubt they would have charged him the cost.  But when it's all a hoax?  Oh yeah, they want their money back.  They want you to report real emergencies, and don't want you to report fake ones.

 ;D

You need to train her better.  When I tell my wife I'm watching the game she always asks how much I've watched and if I know the result.  I rarely get to watch games live, so it's old hat for her.  :)

No, you can't create a ginger beer plant.  What you're describing is called a sludge brew, where you're culturing the stuff that is present on the ginger.  It is not the same as GBP.   ;)

I think I would start by making up a small batch of nothing but the low DE syrup and seeing how it attenuates.  You'd expect to get 26% RDF, but you never know.

There is virtually no protein at all.  Do you think that would affect the yeast's ability to consume all the fermentables? Start w/a fairly high inoculation?
Yeah, blast it with yeast or add a little nutrient and keep it warm like you're doing a forced ferment.  You're looking for information with this test, not flavor :)

Remember that idiot who went to jail for a hoax involving his kid and a balloon?  You know, balloon boy's dad?  You can get a back scratcher from him . . .

That sounds like it will be fun to play with.  You can treat it with amylase to make it highly fermentable and then add it straight to the boil, or do a mini-mash with some 6-row to convert it and add it to the boil.  Adding it to a full mash would probably be less efficient, but that doesn't mean it's a bad idea. :)  It could also be good to add body to a beer that got higher attenuation than anticipated.

Wow, thats awesome.So it makes like a Ginger Ale? I would love some of that.

Would you really want some kefir grains? They are probably good, now fed on raw milk. They are not that big yet. Might need to wait a little while I think?

How much would I need to send for someone to get started?
It's not quite the same as ginger ale, although it depends a lot on your recipe.  It tends to have more sourness than typical store-bought ginger ale though.

I actually am interested in making kefir.  I don't know how much I'd need to get started, but you let it grow until you're comfortable sending me some, and I'll see how the GBP is doing.  I'm not in any rush, I've got more than enough projects going on right now :)

If I didn't ask, I wouldn't know whether you were leading me astray.   ;)

I meant no disrespect...Just wanted clarification.
No worries :)
