I am constantly checking inventory at work at all of our North American locations looking for ingredients.

At our location, the only thing useful is: rice hulls, calcium carbonate, Bentonite, Epsom Salt, and Calcium Chloride. Too bad I haven't delved into water chemistry yet.

Oh, could I use Dried Molasses for anything?

For anyone else my age, the topic of this thread reminds me a lot of the days of Tony Hawk Pro Skater. We would play for hours and hours and hours in college. Everywhere I went, I was like, "I would grind that rail, bust a jump to that ledge, etc." Anyone else in that boat? I'm 30.

Molasses is an excellent growth medium for starters. Many companies than sell gluten-free yeast use molasses. I do not recommend drinking the decanted fluid though.

I'm with you Doc, I used to play the demo for hours before the game was released.

I eye the water cooler at work, looking for that elusive #1 container. If nothing else, its just another carboy to keep Apfelwein in!

Anyone ever thought of hooking a water fountain up to a keg and CO2?
