    Old Wives Tale?

    Someone I work with insists that beer should not be poured twice, ie you shouldn't ever order a jug or decant a bottle into one. This comes from her uncle, who was an alkie so presumably knew what he was talking about, and is law in her family. Any one else ever heard this, or know the reason...

    Nrb's Avatar- Nsfw

    NRB's (admirably) pneumatic avatar has been attracting a fair bit of comment recently- You can do a google search for Japanese "hentai" cartoon/comic if you are looking for something similar. Be warned, some of this stuff is a bit strong, and a bit odd- definitely NSFW.

    World's First Gay Wine

    I offer this with no comment, other than to note that regardless of the K&K/AG discussion currently going on elsewhere on the forum, this is one aspect of beer we don't have to worry about. I think. if you need to know more follow this link to the Age online.

    Saw this in the Nothern Brewers catalog- Spiel is as follows: One stroke of the racking cane/piston assembly will start a siphon when immersed in as little as six inches of beer or wine; less than six inches may require a second stroke. Have been up and down thru every Australian HBS website...

The bottleshop dude who took my cash for 2 (330ml) stubbies of the gold told me...
