    I've used pics I've taken myself, my book covers, etc. Even searched old beer pictures, like
    Duquesne, POC, Stroh's, etc. Found my current avatar on one of those. Or the Mr Natural guy-
    one of my bee...

    I have to dig out the vintage double edge razor pop gave me when I needed to start shaving that
    grandpa gave him. Takes double edge, Wilkinson sword sort of blades with nerf bars under where

    It makes me think of the one craft brewer over here that in a video showed them storing yeast
    slurry in lightly pressurized casks. I used the WL029 yeast for the reason that it seems to be
    a more dire...

    After brewing a few rare/extinct German beers, I'm finding that allowing them to mature a
    couple to a few months does improve them in some ways. The character of even the German ales
    I've brewed chang...

    If it's yeast rafts, you've nothing to worry about. The dissolved Co2 knocks chunks loose from
    the bottom & they float up on the bubbles.

    The vanilla might be fading by then, but you never know. :mug:

    Quick for a while, then slow as a pinto in January with four bald, flat tires.

    I've been keeping mine in covered boxes under my bottling table the whole time since February.
    The bottles I've had in the fridge sat there for weeks. The last one I drank a couple days ago

    They used a lot of sugar with those malt extracts in the baking needs isle of the grocery
    stores of the day. Not very good stuff.

I have to admit this time of year is really starting to suck out loud. They always wait til Thanksgiving time to fuck me outta my last dime. This year is the worst ever. We got no tree,I know I'm not getting any gifts,had to shop at the cheapy store to get the kids something at least. Which is hard cause they're all grown. I got no beer ready,so nothing to drink. No cigs,no vodka,no bourbon...none of the usual. WE only have italian sausage to go with spaghetti tonight because of the food bank. There's no pity for a broke retiree. No $$ till 12/31,which does nothing about right now.
