It's like dark matter.  You hear about it alot but no one has ever observed it directly.

I know both of those words, but they don't make sense when used together like that.

Speaking of wood polish... I have a wood buffet, it's about 200 years old and I'd like to use something to polish it that won't harm or dry out the wood over time.  What's best?  Beeswax?

My computer shows gibberish after the word "called" in the headline. Do I have a computer problem?

I can only guess that someone made a beer out of my Sunday pot roast. Otherwise, I'm stumped.

If you substitute "Milwaukee's Best" for the word "beer" it actually no longer violates the laws of physics.

it would depend on what kind of finish you already have on the piece, I recommend describing its current condition with some detail and a better woodworker than myself could probably give you good advice.

My dad would make nice Koa pieces by applying linseed oil to the wood several times and then using Johnson wax to seal the oil in so the wood does not dry out.

Honestly, I don't even know what it's made of.  It's 200-250 year old piece from California, hand made in that traditional Spanish style.  It was a gift that had been in a friend's family for generations.  That's all I know.  I'd get someone to take a look at it, but it's 8' long and would be a pain-in-the-ass to transport.

Use beer instead of water when making waffles or pancakes.

If you've got leftover beer you're doing something wrong.

No such thing. Pics or it didn't happen.

I mistook "polish pots" as pots that are made in Poland.  End CSB.

I've heard of this actually happening.  This past Monday a friend of mine who owns a bar posted the following to FB:

FREE BEER! Seriously, I'm doing some product photography, and there are like a half dozen glasses of premium beer, such as Old Rasputin, Delirium Tremens, and Prima Pils, that I just photographed, that are now sitting here. I can only drink so many. Come by

So, technically, there was leftover beer, though I doubt for very long.

The primary examples are to attract or kill insects, which is reasonable if beer has sat out, and cooking with, which should not really happen without fresh beer due to loss of flavors and texture (especially for beer batter... a major point is the carbonation).

Who doesn't have a ton of overly-hopped micro-beer, and utterly random six packs, given as "gifts?"  NO.

Real people don't drink that garbage-can shiat.  It's good to cook with, though for random pot roasts and other simmered or braised dishes.  I will admit a good and very cold Mexican beer is good after working in the yard all day.  A cold Coronita, or Modelo Especial is tasty in the summer.

Otherwise, you can keep your shiatty beers.  I want beer to taste like beer, not hops.  Maybe a Michelada, but not a Michelob.  Damned sure not a Bud.

I use lager instead of water when making tacos.  I feel heretical pouring it into the pan, but it just makes them taste so much better.

Water is for bathing
Beer is for everything else.

So what does beer without hops taste like then?

Wow... I don't think I have seen someone that hoity-toity about BEER before. Do you raise your pinky when you drink it?

I understand what he means here. Some of those new craft beers with cutesy names like "Hops & Robbers" just end up tasting like soap.

Still, to be that snotty about beer is like looking down your nose at someone whose baseball cap is not as fancy as yours.

To be fair, I made a dunkel back in about oh, Januaryish that got a bit hotter than it should have during the fermentation process.  Sadly, I made it during the height of our winter here in Southern CA that never really happened this year (I swear to goodness, a week or so after I made it, we had a heatwave with 90%+ days).  Last winter I was able to get away with little or no temp control and made a decent beer.  This winter, no so much.

I knew it was going to suck, so it took me a long time to get around to actually bottling it.  In the meantime, I made a cheapy IPA (that actually is pretty decent) and got my fermentation chamber set-up (a chest-freezer with a temp controller).

So I guess that my original point is that I get way snotty about my own beer.  The dunkel I made (from my own mistakes) is terrible.  On the other hand, it is beer...
