There is a "do not tell list"? Dang!!! The things I learn from asking questions.... I guess I better do my homework and use the "context clues"!

A little bit of research goes a long way! I have been educated and entertained at the same time. (EAC = HAHAHAHAHAHA I'm not worthy!)

Geeze, where's the sense of adventure these days? SWMBO was a ten-second search to figure out.

EAC, now that was a fun night! I spent what seemed like hours tracking that one down! All to find out it was simply Enormous Anal Cavity. I really thought it would be something more fun/x-rated than that!

I can tell you that if you think EAC means what you listed, I can assure you that you are wrong. But, I'll assume you are joking anyways because you also would have discovered that you could be tortured for posting it!

Is there a post on here for all the acronyms, i.e. MLT, HLT, BK? I'm a real newbie with a lot of brewing stuff given to me and I'm dying to be drinking beer made by me.

Default Etc.

Seriously! Why is etc. a preposition?

If I end a sentence in et cetera. Would that be correct?

Wikipedia defines etc. as latin for "and other things", or "and so forth".

Forth, nor things are not prepositions.

I understand why you do not end a sentance with a preposition.

I suck at grammer and puncuation, but I am pretty good at spelling.

Educate me please.

Typically prepositions show the relationship between two or more nouns (there are special cases like "of"). That is why et cetera is a preposition. It used to be abbreviated &c.

Old thread but I have to add refridgerate to the list. Also, unsanitary should actually be insanitary but I'm afraid momentum is too strong to turn that train around.

Insanitary: adj. So unclean as to be a likely cause of disease.
Unsanitary: adj. Not sanitary; adj. not conducive to or promoting health; dirty or unhygienic.

That may be a bit hyper-technical for a home brewing forum.

With you on the "refridgerate" issue though
