    Beering In The Usa

    Currently visiting Detroit for work... didn't take long to understand why all the locals (upon hearing my accent) ask the question "Why the hell have you come here?" - quite a depressed state since the demise of the auto giants. Despite this, the choices for eating out are crazy, but even more...

    12l S/s Stock Pot Special

    Harris Scarfe is selling 12L stainless steel stock pots for $25, save $65 apparently. From memory this particular brand (TuffSteel) had a good solid base. Not as cheap as the 19L BigW pot... but probably much better quality. Good for doing BIAB partials with maybe 2-3kg grain.
