    times. Flavor hop additions @ 20 minutes down to8 1/2 with a few ounces dry hop 7 days.

    Unless you wanna preserve the hop flavors in the LME & not darken it further by boiling. Unless
    you just do a 20 minute boil for a flavor hop addition. And Mr beer being like 2 gallons, a
    full boil wo...

    Yeah, only the colored part od citrus has the flavor/aromatic oils in it. The white pith is not
    just bitter, but in a bad way. It has that bitter, pithy, taste that seems like it just soaks

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.
