my girlfriend at the time almost broke up with me because of how many hours upon hours I would play Gran Turismo and not spend time with her. she'd get REALLY mad when I started an endurance race. . . she's out of my life now, but I'll always have GT.

If their cup runneth over, you might want to get them some Fermcap drops.

I'm 28 and remember acting the same way. The same thing happened with GTA.

When I first started making coffee in a French press I read somewhere that you should take your boiling water off the heat before pouring it over the grounds -- ideal extraction temp is 190 -- which I dutifully did until I went all grain and discovered the heat absorption of grain.

I checked with an instant read thermometer; if you add 190-195 water to your coffee grounds, you get 180-185 in the pot, too low for proper extraction. You actually need to add fully boiling water to the grounds to hit the proper steep temp. Mash strike temp. calculations FTW!

I also use StarSan to sanitize many things around the kitchen. The spray bottle stays under the sink. I've used PBW on stubborn stuck-on dish goo.

In a reverse crossover, I use a Rapi-Kool Cold Paddle, which is normally used for chilling soup stock, to help cool my wort.

Every time I watch football, I always look at the Gatorade coolers and think MLT.

Everytime I walk past one at work I think about getting one.
When we get used equipment in at work I always go through it to see what I can liberate for brewing.

Heck, all of my friends are chefs, and I never thought of that! What a friggin' GREAT idea!

My Christmas list has just changed... again. I gotta stop reading HBT before I go broke!

I like where your head is at. I saw 2 fountains on the Indy craigslist and thought the same thing.
