    It's not just me who cringes when plunging a flask into an ice bath from the stove, right?

    Braised Pork Chops with onion, apple, home-made red Sauerkraut and home-made Dunkelweizen with carrot and mashed potato.Cooking now. Smells amazing.
    Missed out on the Premiership by one goal at Mixed Netball tonight. Just one! Shitballsfuck. PS - Say what you want about netball, but I can legally rub up against tidy birds in this sport and it's called 'playing'. Check and mate.

    My cousin used to play Basketball years back, then one day was asked to help out a mixed netball team who was short one player for a game. He's hasn't played B-Ball since and still plays netball now for the same reasons you listed :p

    I cop a lot of shit from my basketball mad mates, but a few of them have played here and there and love it. I've been playing for about 7 years now. It's quite enjoyable, even without the incidental contact :p

    I play lingerie football for the same reason.
    So by my calculations, FALCOR, my never ending blend keg, now has DIPA, EIPA, APA, Golden, Pale, US Wheat and Stout in it, all in differing amounts. How does it taste you ask? Confusingly delicious, surprisingly.

    Limahl is still making money out of his one hit wonder.
    Currently drinking the ends of two kegs blended as a black and tan.
    Me, that is, not Limahl.

    My Munich Helles is *finally* tasting good, after 4 months. Some beers just need time.
    Brewed a 2% baby pale ale today. Just because I can.

    Should be a good little 'I'll just have a couple after work' beer :)
    LCBA Clone and SN Torpedo clones both brewed and cubed today. Phew!
    2 beers kegged, 1 cold conditioning and a cube pitched on a cake. Phew!

    I love those nights... It seems hard at the time but you wake up to weeks of pleasure.

    What is kegged and pitched mate?
    slcmorro

    Didn't take long at all. Kegged = Vienna/Cascade SMaSH and a 4 Pines Pale Ale clone. Pitched is my Kohatu Clusterfuck (Vienna/Pils IPA grist with Cluster and Kohatu) and CCing is a DSGA dry hopped with 60gms of Amarillo.
    Belgian Blonde in the secondary, Belgian Golden Strong in the primary, and an All Day IPA in the primary as well with US05 used to do a honey mild... tasty few weeks coming up! :)

    Witbier yeast is great for honey ales. Just saying, I used WLP410 and the beer was scrummy.

    Witbier with orange and coriander... omnomnom
    Fuuuuuuck. Came home from a weekend away, and my CO2 bottle is empty. 2nd time it's done it now. Not sure if it's the same keg or a shitty reg. Expensive discovery though grrr

    Disconnect it from the keg so it's just the cylinder, regulator, tube and disconnect/s. Turn the cylinder on then off so the line is under pressure. Wait an hour and if the pressure drops on your regulator gauge you know that there is a leak there. If it doesn't, there is a leak on your keg.

    So, I got the bottle filled again today. Did what was suggested. Charged the line with 100kpa, left it for 4 hrs and it dropped to 80kpa. Left it for another 4 hrs, no drop at all. I'm thinking maybe the heat of the gas gave e a false reading since it was just filled, if that's possible at all?

    Connected it all up to a keg and did the soapy water test at 300kpa charged. Didn't see any leaks at all. Confused.

    If I wasn't already getting grief from swmbo about all the air guitars laying around the house, I would be all over this.... All the best to him.

    The credit must go to my good friends Tom. He's always looking out for me. Mostly because he has a key to the shed where the keezer lives ;)

    Reminds me of last week. I was stuffed and fell asleep at 7pm. woke up at midnight. Had a longneck of stout and went back to sleep about 1am. stayed asleep the entire night
    Brewed a Czech Pils and my Take 2 Hefeweizen today, and I even managed to keep on side with the missus by doing a load of washing and cooking fried rice. No chill rocks!
