| Food and Drink Board|| Brunch/Breakfast in NOLA Tomorrow - Fratastic423 on 8/1/14 at 10:38 am|
I was just tasked by the wife to find a place in NOLA for us to go to brunch with my sister and her husband tomorrow. We will have our 10 month old with us, sister lives in Metairie. Her suggestion was to go to the Ruby Slipper but they don't take reservations, which apparently we were hoping to ha...
| Soccer Board|| Coed Over 30 Soccer Team Formation? - Fratastic423 on 6/2/14 at 11:08 am|
So I am jumping back on the soccer saddle, a buddy convinced me to play on his newly created over 30 coed team. After being convinced that the league is as close as possible to a beer league, I bought in as I am in the worst shape of my life. The team is going to be terrible, as we have a mixture ...

Going to see Jeff Dunham with my dad tonight (he is a fan) and we need dinner plans. He suggested Walk On due to proximity, but I refuse to drive from BTR to NOLA and eat at Walk Ons. we have a decent amount of time, but the show is at 730 I think, so not a bunch. Not looking for anything crazy e...
| Food and Drink Board|| Vacuum Storage Systems - Fratastic423 on 10/15/13 at 10:36 am|
I assume that many people use vacuum storage systems of some kind at their house. Do you feel it is a worthwhile investment? For the first time ever I clicked on an ad on TD for the VacuVita and it seems like a pretty good product. Kind of pricey but if it saves me money on food going bad it may ...

What's on the brewing calendar for the weekend guys (and gals, are there any gal brewers who post here?)?
My plan is to brew a Belgian Trippel one of the two days. Probably will depend on if I get a starter going tonight or tomorrow morning. I am looking to make it traditional but slightly diff...

Apparently I had started a thread with this exact title bc it popped up as saved text. Nice.
FBD is Nola Blonde that I ended up with after tailgating this weekend. No idea who brought it but I liked what I found in my ice chest once I got home. :cheers:...

So a buddy of mine got rear ended on the interstate on friday. He didn't print out his new insurance card but has current insurance. The state Trooper had my buddies car towed even though it was fine to drive and it's in the state impound lot for the weekend. He cannot get it until Monday.
| Food and Drink Board|| Homebrewing - Brewing on a Thursday Afternoon - Fratastic423 on 9/20/12 at 3:02 pm|
So I got the afternoon off today so I got brewing a little sooner in the day than expected. Mashing has begun on 10 gallons of Saison Brett. We shall see how Boo's keggle works in its inaugural boil. Giddy about using new equipment today (keggle, 15 gallon carboy). :cheers:...

While it seems to be sold out in bottles around Baton Rouge, the Cove is tapping a keg of it tonight at 6. No I don't work there, I am just personally invested, not monetarily or anything, in having successful specialty kegs in Baton Rouge, so I wanted to come promote it. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Homebrewing - Weekend Recap - Fratastic423 on 8/6/12 at 9:02 am|
What's everyone got fermenting after what turned out to be a decent weekend for brewing? I know that HoustonTiger (whatever her name is on here) has her first batch fermenting. Anyone else?
I brewed my beer for Oktoberfest - a German Schwarzbier. Hopefully the old yeast I bought on the cheap f...
| Food and Drink Board|| Homebrewing - Bored at Work, Weekend Recap Thread - Fratastic423 on 7/30/12 at 10:41 am|
On Saturday I brewed an all Northern Brewer IPA for our club's Hop Project IPA. Ended right where I wanted to efficiency wise (1063) with 6 gallons so probably about 75% efficiency. Hopped to 60 IBU's with an ounce at 20, 10, 0. Will dry hop with 2 ounces for a week once fermentation is complete....

| Food and Drink Board|| Homebrewing - Hopefully Bottling Wine Tonight - Fratastic423 on 7/26/12 at 9:55 am|
Ideally my Riesling is ready to bottle tonight. It hasn't been aging that long but it appears to be ready. Going to taste it this afternoon obviously before moving forward with bottling. For those people who use carboys and bottle, do you bottle straight from the carboy or do you go into a bottli...

Not sure if any of y'all are on or near LSU's campus but I thought I would pass this along. I went by Tuesday and yesterday and they had grass fed beef loins for $8 a lb and tenderloin for 10. Along with a beef tongue (I bought one on a limb) and two hearts :dunno:. It's frozen and there wasn't a...

Busy two days of homebrewing related activities for me. I have a Porter that I need to keg (hopefully it comes out well), and a Reisling that I need to transfer into another carboy. I have all the necessary stuff to make fig wine, just don't feel confident in the recipe. Advice anyone?
