I was at the feed store yesterday buying some chicken feed, and looking through their menu at their grain selection. No barley, but I did see a 50 lb bag of cut oats for $15. Got me to thinking how many stouts I could make....You begin to wonder what the grains meant for livestock at Tractor Supply would taste like if you brewed it up.
I was pulled over the other day for rolling a stop sign and I had two 22oz bottles of homebrew on the passanger seat, buckled in. He asked what it was and I told him it was homebrew. He let me go with just a warning.I just read all the pages and LOL at the cop thing. I was brewing at a buddys house and 3 squads drove by slow, then one finally noticed what we were doing and just waved. After brewing I went home and the last cop saw my squad in my driveway and asked what we were doing, he will now probably be my backup for life.
Or they say "We have a LOT just name one I bet we have it."You ask a waitress what beer they have, she says "Everything", then you rhyme of 30+ beers they don't have.
Then they'll say, "Well, what do you want?" Anything that's not Bud Light, Coors Light, Miller Lite, Bush Lite, ...." And they look like a deer caught in the headlights. You just know they're thinking, "But that's all we have!" sigh....Or they say "We have a LOT just name one I bet we have it."
I always ask for a list
Then I just want to shoot them in the face after they tell me there is no list and have said no to about 5 beers I have inquired about.
Drives me bonkers.
Use the complaint as an excuse to pick up a decent sized cooler and a sump pump. I've been using that this winter, and it's REALLY great. Fill cooler with snow/ice, add water, submerge pump, put output back into cooler, turn on. Saves water, no drafts and I don't have to screw around with any outdoor faucets. Just take the pump OUT of water and bring it in when you're done.When you find yourself sitting on a frozen deck alone in the dark with a pair of pliers chasing kinks in only hose you have that is not frozen attached to your chiller, it's 11pm, 15F out and you have to get this water circulating! Oh, and btw the water is being routed through the house bathroom sink via a 50 ft kinked up hose and out the slider to the deck, and yes, the slider is open the width of the garden hose and yes, 'The f'in draft is coming inside!' (I know this, duh - can't help it... it's for BEEEEER)
