    BIAB with chill overnight in the "kettle" (not cube)

    Why not look at it a different way? Rather than chill in the kettle, ferment in the cube. Still only one transfer...

    C'mon there's a national benchmark for sausage sandwich prices, well known to be $2.50 max. I'm calling fair trading For an investigation into these inner city wannabe hipsters.

    Now I don't expect mathematical accuracy from a former rugby league player, I.e. Danny Buderus, But, it annoys the shit out of me that that a company expecting me to spend my hard earned by allowing them to supply me with "their"electricity , don't understand that thry look plain dumb by...

    In support of your premise, average salary is one that gets my goat. There are a few people on a shitload of money who skew the mean upward from the great number of low wage earners.

    You are correct, in some populations, attributes can be skewed by outliers. In this case, I am assuming, with reasonable grounds, that this attribute of the population is "normally distributed" and so, if this is the case, that half the population lie above the mean and half below it. Given the...

    Now I may be missing something, but, I think (exactly -1) half the people in the world have below average IQ. And to quote MHB, we force them to vote. In Australia.

    Shorten / ALP - bigoted xenophobes.

    @Bridges, I don't think that the message is what's getting everybody's goat. As the leaders of complaining about everyone else and their bigotry, the labor party has been caught making a basic error of marketing. A first year political science student knows that if you are going to be throwing...

    The WEAL railroad

    This is a tale I've heard before. I've also read it refuted with as much evidence. I ask myself, if I wanted to raise income taxes 7.5%, what spin would I use to sell it?

    The WEAL railroad

    The primary issue I see is that all these systems and processes are devised by politicians and bureaucrats who are so far removed and insulated from reality that they are barking up the wrong tree. Eg. So I don't own my residence but I have $200k in investments more than someone who does? Does...

    The WEAL railroad

    Eventually, yes, all assets will come into consideration. It seems to me to be inequitable to pay the same benefit to someone who has to pay 30%+ on housing out of it and to some one who, largely, does not. However, it is political suicide to significantly interfere with benefits the largest(?)...

    The WEAL railroad

    Yeah. I don't have a problem with the overlap of the overpayment collection process at the edges. It is reasonable to expect that if you are targeting overpayment across the whole spectrum, you will impact some at the edges. I see this as statistical analysis, if you only wat to play safe in...

    The WEAL railroad

    I like the pollies retirement perks arguments. As I understand it, historically, the old men, almost exclusively, who dedicated a large part of their earning years to the service of the state, when finished their service were unable to work, or not suitable for employment and so needed some...

    The solution, for us anyway, was bribery, plain and simple. Buy a packet of clinkers. Clinker for a poo in the toilet. Why SWMBO chose clinkers, I can only guess......they do resemble the poo.. Lemon

    Isn't a boat, "a hole in the water you pour money into"? The best boat I know of is one my mate owns. Any one of my mates, not picky.

    What caused you to change your job

    I have heard a saying that people don't leave companies, they leave managers. That is certainly true for me. Although I have also moved jobs to continue a great environment with good leaders. While money was important in most of those moves, I made the decision based on leadership. Lemon

    Thanks Steve I look forward to it. I do appreciate that 24 hr turnaround is a pleasant anomaly. Isn't it interesting that small business understand the value of customer service. And better still how that directly impacts the bottom line. Having worked in both I really enjoy small business...

    Hey Steve, Must send a shout out thanks for the exceptionally speedy order delivery service, as usual. Placed my order last night, received it today. Thank you. For your hard work last night to get it done. For everyone else, who are probably aware of Brewman's great service, this is not a...
