Hard cider

homebrewing — commander flatus @ 3:25 pm April 29, 2011

It’s about the easiest homebrewed beverage in the world to make:

5 gal unpasteurized cider from Whole Foods
2 quarts organic sour cherry juice
1 packet Lalvin V1116 yeast

This is a 6 gallon Better Bottle carboy.

Should be ready for Christmas.

About the stupidest study ever

Staph Bacteria Found in Half of U.S. Meat

That’s kind of like saying half of all children are below average. Staph is everywhere. Get over it. The world isn’t sterile.

Excellent news!

Alcohol helps the brain remember, says new study

Not really sure I believe it though…

This makes me sad…

The first quality beer show on TV since the beer hunter series will not be renewed.

So the magazine business…

is going bankrupt right here in the midst of the ereader picking up steam. I can go out and subscribe to any number of magazines for $5.99 to $12 per year, yet these same magazines cost $2.99 a month for the ereader versions.
Makes no sense at all. I won’t mind seeing more of them go away given their lack of any business sense at all. If they make money mailing me a color printed version for $10 a year, how about sharing the cost savings of the ereader version with the subscriber?

EDIT (5/22/2011): The Oxford American has it right. They get almost everything right, though. It’s the South, ya’ll.
