MODNOTE: Just moved this and a few posts above from the Guinness thread so you can chat more freely. The original time stamp on this post was about three hours ago. Have fun :P. Cheers Nuff

Sounds promising!

If this thread were stickied at the top Nuff I might remember more to use it. It tends to get lost in the bush and forgotten. Just an idea. I don't mind personally saying "commenting in Nonsense", or "moving to nonsense" with the little man that walks over to the side. If you are really serious about this. Maybe a button that says "post nonsense" that would automatically link to "the other side"

This is a big move for the site though. I've enjoyed the little bits of banter in between the serious stuff though. It gives your head a rest and it makes a thread more readable. A bit like having pictures in a text book. It keeps things light hearted and spurs on creativity, and from that frame of mind great inventions and thoughts evolve. And what about the sheep!

I'm sad a little bit that the site is changing. It's a tricky issue though. Maybe it will be a change for the better. Seems a little restrictive. I guess you guys have put some thought into it. Maybe you don't need feedback. Maybe I just need to get used to the idea.

We haven't heard from Bob in a while. I hope you haven't scared him off. The site won't be the same if that's so :cry:

That's a good idea regarding making this a sticky GuingesRock. Now done ;).

Rest-assured, the site isn't changing so don't be worried there. Often a thread will have one or two off-topic posts and that's perfectly fine. Very rarely is there a string of them.

Your Guinness thread where the posts above originally appeared, is a very good one that readers will be interested in. Nuff's splitting of the topic was a good move as it serves everyone. It prevents those interested in Guiness, losing interest in the thread and allows those who enjoy some banter to keep doing so.

Splitting a topic can take twenty or thirty minutes to do correctly. Please never see it as a negative. It's rarely done but when it is, it's just someone taking the time to help us all.

Please make as much use of this thread as you can. That's a classic string of posts between you and Yeasty above.

:lol:

Don't worry about Bob, GR. He's holding all the Cheesetradamus prizes so I email him three times a day to make sure he hasn't absconded :P. (Seriously though, he's actually having a pretty busy week.) He's also crap at numbers and has a bad memory so I constantly remind him what the Cheesetradamus prizes are. He thought it was just something small but I have corrected him and told him that it's thousands of dollars worth. I figure if I say this enough times, his false memories will disappear.

Wish me luck :lol:,

PP,

You might as well add a coupon to use on a "local girl of the night" as long as you keep adding to the Cheesestradamus payout! Dream big my friend! The shoe box full of prizes is waiting for the last game of the season (Super-Bowl) to be mailed out! Please do not get to excited! A heart as old as yours may not make it! Come to think about it. Your liver may be your biggest threat!

Lylo,

Your "Cheese" gift will be in the mail tomorrow. That is if I go to the post office on the way to the polar brew tomorrow? Thanks for winning and saving me postage! Sorry for raising my hand so much. I was just trying to make you look foolish. I make myself look foolish all the time. I just wanted to spread the wealth! :roll:

Lylo,

I will be leaving in a hour or so to the post office and the lake! I will give it a go! You can be sure that I will be ultra careful walking. I feel safe knowing other home brewers will be there. If I fall I can be sure that (after they steal my kit) someone will help me up!

So with this malady you are experiencing I guess that either sober or hammered there is a huge chance that you are going to end up tits up on the ice as usual!!

My father was in the navy during the war, he was a motor torpedo boat gunner. One of his navy expressions (he had many) was “as wet as a can on pi$$”

Be careful and wash those eggs Yeasty. Chickens only have one opening at the back end :argh: (cloaca) and you aren’t boiling them. Perhaps dip them in starsan :)

How was the curry Yeasty?

Did you have a Chicken Madrass? Onion Bhaji? Mushroom Bhaji? Paratha? Cucumber Raita? Bombay Potatoes? Pilau Rice? ...what did you have?

I miss the English curry so much. Nothing like it around here, unless you go to Halifax, where there is only one half decent curry place in the whole city.

What's that egg story?

So I made it back from the Polar brew! I didn't fall! I brewed my "Fish Pee" with out to much bother. OK! I missed the late hop additions by 15 minutes and I boiled for 20 minutes too long. But other than that I scored a lot of free beer and food! The regular snacks like, beer bread, beer chip dip, chili with beer, hop candy.

The temperature wasn't as high as expected but a pleasant 26F (-3.3C). Minimal wind and actually a decent day overall. I will post a YouTube video later today if I can cut 40 minutes of video down to 8 minutes!

EDIT:
I will post a YouTube video later today if I can cut 40 minutes of video down to 8 minutes!
The video lasted 60 minutes! It may be a few days to cut it to 8 minutes!!!


Here is last years Polar brew 2012. Poor turn out because of the weather!
