Frustrated

Normally, I wouldn't either, and I'd have my spouse as a failsafe if the panic attack got that bad. I think that was part of the plan (she deals with her issues by triggering me--and 30 yrs vs 1...

Fellow beginner!

As with food, rule #1 is (say it with me!) SANITATION!

Would you cook with tongs that you *know* were used for raw poultry without giving them a hot soap bath & scrub?

Here's my tasty sweet stout. This is about 5 minutes after I poured (yay phone calls at the worst minute, eh?), and as you can see, there's still head.

It's still green, and the carb is a bit...

It was a divorce that led to the meadery closing. Before I bought it, several people had chimed in about how damn good this place's mead was.
