Yeah, that's how Koreans hit soju (especially older men), just takes a bit longer and shot
glasses are bit bigger because it's weaker.That said, if you sip baiju reaaaaaaaaally slow it's
not that bad....
Posted in thread: What do you do to make money on the side? on 11-24-2015 at 04:37 AM
I would do English tutoring on the side if I had the inclination to make some extra dough. I
get very generous offers and I feel bad saying no to the parents of my students, but I'm
already at work 50...

Posted in thread: Saflager US-05 ideal temp on 11-23-2015 at 12:30 AM
My most recent finished batch is an APA that spent its first couple days at 16C with US-05. I

saying much, but...

Get to know the people who work the seafood counters at the nicest markets in town. They will

it the sam...

Oh Victory at Sea... I wanted to like it, hell, I wanted to love it, but it felt like I was
