    Cold break proteins usually have that, " wet popcorn" sort of look to them. This one looks to
    have the yeast floaters mixed up in it?

    Love it with fried eggs, taters & toast for breakfast. For our anniversary dinner yesterday, I
    made some ...

    I was looking for an old Crossman 760 pump I'd bought for plinking & hunting small game down by
    The Black River when I was a teen. Searched our MB's closet to no avail. But to what should my

    Some krausen from certain yeasts can be stubborn like that. Jostling it a bit can cause it to
    sink. Just be sure it's at a stable FG.

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.
