  • Re: OT- How clean is your house?- OT

    We keep our house pretty clean, but finally hired a maid that comes every other week for $75 a pop. Vacuums, mops, scrubs down both bathrooms and the kitchen, dusts and I don't know what else. We were busy cleaning up every Saturday or Sunday and decided it was worth us to just pay somebody else so we could spend quality time with The Duke. One of those life balances. I hate paying somebody to do something we can do, but enjoy the weekends a whole lot more.
  • Re: Dark Beer Weather

    Just bottled a stout and an imperial stout the other week so that they will be ready for when the colder weather hits Texas. Gotta plan ahead when you brew your own so they are ready in time.

    Finally found a place that has Lefthand Milk Stout. Might try one of those tonight.

    Another homebrewer here. batch #33 and 34 fermenting away.

    Two biggest things are sanitation and fermentation temperature. You need some way to keep it cool while the yeast does its thing making alcohol.

    I've done extract and all grain with the three vessel set-up, but have switched to BIAB (brew in a bag. Look up Wilser Bags) with full volume mashing. Much less complicated than 3 vessel if you are going all grain as you don't have to worry about sparging and vorlauf (and all those terms you have no idea what they mean anyway right now).  You just need a kettle (at least 10 Gallons), a bag to fit it and either a bucket or a carboy to ferment in. And I'd stay away from glass carboys. If you need a reason, google glass carboy accidents

    Make some home made sausage and set it up at 150F. Try maintaining that low a fire with out it for 5 or 6 hours.
  • Re: Tri-Tip + asparagus

    Lookin' good. Wish my grocery store stocked it more. It's kinda hit or miss. It's there when you aren't looking for it and not there when you are. :(
