The Pub / Re: Whiskey

Howdy pardnahs.  Been busy in the distilling world lately.  The ADI conference in Seattle was amazing!  Washington State definitely has its s*** together when it comes to craft distilling.

You guys want to talk about good whiskey?  Do whatever it takes to get your hands on some Woodinville Whiskey Company whiskey.  It is way delicious.  Bourbon with rye in the grain bill.  Rye that will bring you to tears.  A vodka made from a bourbon grain bill that will flat-out knock your socks off!

Anyway, since I'm just posting a drive-by... Joe Bob says. "Check this out":

Why You Should Drink More Whiskey

That is all.  As you were...

Jets and Bills - giving him the business - must be a New York thing.

I used a bookmark to try to access the forum around 4-5 hours ago and all that appeared was a gozillion lines of code.

Same bookmark I always use to get here.

They're gonna give quarterbacks and receivers stress cards too.  :o

"Personal foul defense - stressing the quarterback - 15 yards - automatic 1st down."

"Pass interference defense - stressing the receiver - looking at the receiver too hard - the ball will be placed at the spot of the foul"

What do they do when their Humvee gets a flat in a combat zone?

They go with a combat jack.  ::)

It's a Marine Corps thing. Or used to be before the invention of the stress card

Jarheads wipe with stress cards?  No wonder they're such bad... asses!  ;)

I've had the same one for about five years.  It still works as well as it ever did.  I take the upper collar off, pull the inner tube out, and rinse everything well.  If it's going to be a while before I use it again I put a couple of drops of food-grade glycerin on the o-ring to keep it from drying out and cracking.

Auto-siphon is a larger diameter plastic outer tube with a smaller diameter inner plastic tube.
The outer tube has a check valve at the bottom and a collar at the top.
The inner tube has a o-ring gasket on the bottom end that acts to seal the gap in diameters between the two tubes (like a piston ring). 
The top of the inner tube is bent about 90-100 degrees (looks like a upside down J. 
The plastic racking hose attaches to the upper bent end of the inner tube. 

To start the siphon you pull the inner tube almost all the way out of the outer tube so that the o-ring stops at the upper collar of the outer ring. 

You place the outer tube into the carboy and allow to rest on the bottom.  The outer tube fills with liquid. 

Now you push the inner tube downward.  The check valve and o-ring force the liquid up inside the inner tube and out into the plastic racking hose, kinda like the exhaust stroke on a piston engine. 

Once the flow is started a siphon is created and the flow continues on its own.

And this new rule kind of made me made as well.  But that commercial that says if each household replaced just one bulb, it save enough energy for 3 millions home, it made me feel better. 

Sheryl Crow says if we all would just use only one sheet of toilet paper we could save the trees and save the planet. 

Thanks!  That's an awesome idea, One-Sheet-Sheryl!

I doubt that it would make anyone feel better though.  Everyone would be walking around scratching their asses all of the time.

Pro-Bowl, seriously?  A bigger waste of time would be hard to find.  Why would I want to hang out with a bunch of sweaty fat guys suffering from roid rage?

It should be called Semi-Auto Siphon...I mean you put it in the carboy, it doesn't start up automatically.  ;D

Yep, you have to pull the trigger each time you want it to siphon.  With full auto you only have to pull the trigger once and keep it depressed for continuous siphoning.    8)

I've been getting bombarded with promotions to win tickets to the Super Bowl.

Are you kidding me?  Sitting outdoors for 5 hours, in New Jersey, in February, isn't a prize.  It's cruel and unusual punishment.

I'll stay here and watch it on the big screen outside on the lanai, in shorts and a T-shirt.
