Some of this fruit is going to be hard to find in the middle of January. And as long as you don't mind me manipulating the drawing I will put Crab Boil on this list. Maybe give it to LSUGRAD and his team. :lol:...

LA Ingredients for Homebrew Festival - Fratastic423
My homebrew club is hosting a festival of sorts where each team has to brew a beer with a specific ingredient. We have a LA ingredient theme but we have a good number of teams this year and I have run out of ideas for ingredients to put into the hat. So what comes to mind when you think of LA food...

re: The "US can't compete because athletes choose other sports" Argument - Fratastic423
I could just as easily argue that Jozy is just as good if not better of an athlete than Paul, Wstbrook and DWade. It's really idiotic to compare across sports to determine if guys would be good in the other sport. ...

After seeing the menu, I am back to being excited about City Pork. Their first location while good food, was nothing exciting for me. The new place however is much more in line with what I thought they were going to do on Perkins. We will have to hit that up one evening. ...

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread - Fratastic423
I've never seen/read about adding grain that needed to be mashed into the partigyle process. I have always thought that you would just be able to add grains for color/slight flavor, not more base malt. But I dont see why it wouldn't work. You aren't going to be sparging with hotter water, so it i...

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread - Fratastic423
Well you cannot have above 100% mash efficiency, so I assume that is just wrongly calculated. There would be no reason for the difference unless for some reason the wort in the beer their was not mixed terribly well from the kettle. ...

re: Looking for empty beer kegs - Fratastic423
I highly doubt you find one legally for a cheap price. Craigslist typically works. But the keg belongs to the brewery and they are not going to let them go. Not returning the keg after a party is the easiest but you are stealing the keg. Now most people don't have a problem with this just not return...
