Good story about the Judge. Apparently, they're a lot cooler in Tx. than they are in NC. The fact that your buddies left you 6 homebrews shows that they hadn't given up on you. Maybe they felt that a man coming out of a coma shouldn't drink more than 6 at a sitting ( and knew you well enough to know you would) For fear of slipping back in . I'll bet they also felt that homebrewing would be theraputic for you as you built back your stock. Once more; If my mind was still clear enough after drinking all your brew by a fire in your woods, that would seem like a reasonable excuse for me. Help me sleep at night after I wrote you off for dead and started using up all your stuff like a vulture. That's a poor attempt at humor, I know. I'll never mention it again.
I live in eastern NC near New Bern. We bought 20 acres here about three years ago. We got it just before land started going crazy here. Recently, one of my neighbors sold 30 acres for 350 k . That's much less than I paid. If I had it to do over again today, I could probably afford a nice place in the Projects. Don't know how the Burro would like it. The neighbors might not dig him either. Believe it or not, some people just aren't into hearing a donkey sing acapella at 6:30 AM because he's ready to eat. Don't know what's happening to the world these days.

Default Sudsmonkey in N.C.

20 acres! Thats cool,
And yes, my friends did leave me 6- 22 oz bottles,
it could have been worse.

I met another dude who had land somewhere here in Texas,
horses and cattle, a regular ranch and he is a homebrewer too.
Actually I did not meet him but rather found his ranch-homebrewing website, it was well done and reminded me of what I would like my website to be if I ever get it together. It was like I knew the guy.

Land !
"It is the only thing that lasts."
Gerald O' Hara
{'Scarlets Dad'}

Even more important than that,
now-a-days one must have land to survive.
Land to grow food, to get firewood,
to have a degree of security,
as between the hoards of the masses on one end,
and the govt. on the other...
but wait, it gets worse.
In a world where every bite of food, every ounce of fuel,
ones power, water, clothes, entertainment, protection, {even ones beer!!!}
Comes from others.
From a network of supply roads.
Planes, trucks, telephones, all that gas, all that power, and all those people getting a piece every step of the way.
It builds.
Each step,
from producer, buyer, banker, truckdriver, factory,
trucker again, store, taxes !!!
I have heard that there are 101 taxes on an egg!
One egg!
And thats not to mention profit.

Ninty percent of every beer one buys in a 'store' is profit and tax !!!

It is that way with everything.
And as long as it works it is efficient.


But it reminds me of an old song...


"There used to be an old man
who lived around here
he made his own clothes
and brewed his own beer"

Red Green


That is the point, I think.
avoid crime, taxes, traffic,
high gas prices,
accidents, diseases, cops,
truck bombs, whatever...
Just stay home.


and brew ones own beer

No, just a six pounder.

No, you didn't get politacal...that was a reference to suds living in Eastern NC and the BBQ sauce they like there. It's a Hatfield/McCoy Vinegar/Mustard kind of thing. I'd say which I prefer, but suds might come and try to get his beer back.

Knife- Icouldn't agree more on the land thing. I've got neighbors across the field, but they look to be about an inch tall from here. It's not that I'm up to no good, I just like some space. We've got twelve clear acres of pasture out front and seven of woods. We live in the wooded part. It's mostly hardwoods, rare in NC. I dig it.
El P.- The sauce you're referring to is a South Carolina thing. Ours is a vinegar base with hot peppers, a tiny bit of ketchup( more for color than anything else) and a little brown sugar. At least I think that's how Mom made it. It only goes on BBQ, which in this part of the world is a pig, cooked whole and chopped finely by a man who has been up drinking since about 6am. I know that up North, anything done on a grill is BBQ. Down in Texas( no offense to either of you gentlemen) it's beef. NC barbecue is the One True Q. However, I am a great admirer of what you guys do down there with the dry rub of spices on your beef. Looks good to me!
Sorry about the whole BBQ rant. Damn near turned into spamming. I apologize. Ya'll wanna talk religion?

That's the sauce I'm referring to...the only thing that should ever touch smoked pork. I sprinkle a little on mine after I pull it, and nobody here can figure out my secret...they just know it's better than anything they've ever had before.

Default Pistolero and sudsmonk...

Hey ya'll,

I would really like the recipe for the vineagar-mustard, bbq hog sauce, and its variations.
Being a amateur gourmet chef as well as a hog hunter,
{have two hog traps capable of holding 12- 200lb hog.}
this strange new sauce is intriguing.

My Texas style sauce is basically,
ketchup, worchestershire sauce, syrup, KC-masterpiece sauce,

Thanks in advance


J. Knife
