    Epic Failure - What food did I ruin this weekend???

    I love to cook. In my quest to try many new recipes and techniques I've learned quite a bit. Ninety percent of my cooking involves no recipes or I use a recipe as a guideline - tweaking as I go. I have canned food, made jellies and jams, cured meats into delicious bacon, made pasta and...

    60 Year Old Honey

    So, in the process of cleaning out my grandmothers house I was able to get my hands on 2 Gallons of 60 year old honey. Any suggestions on what type of mead I should make out of it? I'm a bit new (not a virgin) with making meads and I want something that will highlight this very dark honey.

    Horrible crime/tragedy

    A very kind gentleman that I work with had his horse mutilated on Friday night. He was too emotional to even be seen on camera for the interview.

    Bulk hops....

    So, I decided that I'm brewing enough to warrant buying bulk hops... And purchased a few pounds from a few different sources. The first source shorted me almost 4 oz from the two pounds I bought. Is this typical hops vendor etiquette?
