    is making cheese economical or more of a hobby?

    If you make high end cheeses it will be. For standard grocery store cheeses, no unless you raise your own dairy goats/cows. Even then I doubt it would be more economically feasible (the milk part).

    Can you sour any beer?

    Neal is correct on this, the main reason a dowel is used is to restrict O2 transfer into the environment. The permeability of plastic is very high and glass is essentially a medium that allows no O2 transfer, so the dowel allows a decent surface area for a standard carboy. Now the bugs can...

    12 month Iraqi experiment

    Hey man, be careful over there! Don't fall victim to making the Gatorade hooch (I talked to a guy who was over there, they fermented the Gatorade or something to that effect in the rafters, being that it is a dry country there is no alcohol, or at least that was what he said)

    God's Gift to Humankind

    The frozen fries, the reason they work so well is they are steam cooked (or something like that...I saw it on "How it's made" or whatever that show is). The way I make my fries is take a Russet, stab it a few times with a knife so it doesn't explode and microwave it until it just yields to...

    whats with this absinthe ad ?

    I added some fresh sprigs to a batch at flameout. I like how it came out, it's a little herbal/medicinal though which some people may not like.

    French bread baguettes

    You can make a couche simply by making folds in a (non-fuzzy) cotton towel that has been impregnated with raw flour. Rub the flour in really well. Start with the far end of the towel, hold it up against the backsplash up the wall about 3", on the counter. Lay the first unrisen loaf on the towel...

    How Long does a homebrew last?

    I disagree with indefinitely. It is highly recipe dependent. Good in terms of, it won't make you sick, etc....but good in terms of flavor is a different story. Some beers just lose all character when they sit too long. The general rule of thumb is the more complex the recipe and higher the...

    growing hops near a walnut tree

    I think the leaves contain it (juglone) as well. I have seen the effect of this first hand with an area of my garden. I didn't notice the small Walnut tree growing just outside the fence, but the area closest to it was always stunted. So I cut it down. As pjj2ba and david's article mention...

    This is why you're fat.

    That stuff looks revolting. Hey, I am known to enjoy Salo on occasion, but I don't cut a 5" square off, top it with mayo, bread it and deep fry it and then eat it with a side of butter.

    Price of carrots.

    People are so ignorant. I had a friend who had this apple tree in his back yard. Produced tasty apples but they were ugly because he didn't take care of it. So he cut it down. At the time he was buying all these apples at the store. Now look at the price of apples. I have a blanket of snow over...

    Beer snobs SUCK!!! (rant)

    While I remain highly opinionated about just about any commercial beer, I choose not to judge anyone with different tastes in beer than mine. I will call a spade a spade though. If it sucks then I'm not going to massage anybodies feelings about it :D. Will I drink a beer if offered to me...

    Pickled eggs--recipe?

    Hey thx fly. The tomatoes were lacto-fermented (something of my own design). The Oyster mushrooms were from my mountain. The pickles and dillies we grew (well all the ingredients anyway, save the salt and vinegar and a few of the spices). The olives were from the store though.
