Things to do in Get Bent when you're dead [Jun. 29th, 2006|01:16 pm]

I.) Bottle "Fast, Cheap, and Tasty?!"

II.) Build a model of a hypercube in my spare time. Maybe one that's really, really big.

III.) Go to the Brewer's Outlet tomorrow.

IV.) Spend some quality time with ∞ and Cantor by way of DFW's Everything and More: A Compact History of ∞.

V.) Make some cider.

Lastly, a quote from the Wikipedia page on Christopher Walken: "Walken initially trained as a dancer in musical theatre before moving on to more serious roles in theatre and then film. A select number of his movies include dance moves that he has worked in, reflecting this early background."

[music |gorod - rusted nails attack]

I.) Who is interested in helping jdjhammer and I bottle the "Fast, Cheap, and Tasty?!" brew tonight?

II.) Who would be interested in a "cider" experiment? I was thinking we could get some organic, pasteurized juice, some yeast, toss it in, wait, then drink it whenever we'd like to call it done. This could potentially be started this evening for very, very little effort and money.

III.) Would anyone care to take in a movie tonight? Perhaps the Akercocke DVD? (It's f'n hilarious!) Perhaps Saved!?

Fast. Cheap. Easy. [Jun. 23rd, 2006|07:49 pm]

Today we brewed a beer that was designed for a quick fermenting time, a low budget, and a low alcohol content. Everyone needs a cool glass of homebrew for the summer - they just might not know it yet.

Recipe Follows - mostly intended for Beer NerdsCollapse )

After realizing the more mollasses-like qualities of the organic malt, it might be more fair to refer to this beer as "Fast, Cheap. and Tasty?!" We shall see.

Pictures soon to follow with any luck.
