    Show us yer Bar

    Hey Guys, I am wondering what your Home Bar or Favourite place to enjoy the fruits of your labour looks like, do you have a Bar Set up in or outside ? As I am single, I have set up an inside Bar & Outside. My Mates call it "Phil's Bar & Grill" I was a cook in the Army & have always enjoyed a coldy (or 9) & work for myself in Advertising & Marketing Stubby Holders to Pubs & Clubs Bar Mats etc. so hardly any need to go to the Pub for a Brew as I am always in them. Show us what yer got !! ? ? Cheers Classic (Phil)
  2. Hi All, What culinary delight are you planning for a cold night ? I am doing Mussels & Prawn Pasta with the herbs all from the garden. A few home brews & a stout & obviously try the red wine that's going in the sauce. Happy Days.

    TOUCAN STOUT

    Hey Guys, With the cooler weather approaching ( in Adelaide anyway ) I am getting happily involved in a Toucan Stout I brewed about 6 months ago, truly a great taste & very satisfying. Obviously the longer you store it the better it is, it has given me incentive to keep up the stocks for future drinking pleasures What's your favourite winter style brew ? I am experimenting with a couple of English Porter styles. Cheers.

    Joke For The Day!

    Can you blokes read these ? Earl and Bubba are quietly sitting in a boat fishing, chewing tobacco and drinking beer when suddenly Bubba says, "Think I'm gonna divorce the wife... she ain't spoke to me in over 2 months." Earl spits overboard, takes a long, slow sip of beer and says, "Better think it over... women like that are hard to find." A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollarsfor dinner. The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?" "No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied. "Will you use it to gamble instead of buying food?" the man asked. "No, I don't gamble," the homeless man said. "I need everything I can get just to stay alive." "Will you spend this on greens fees at a golf course instead of food?" the man asked. "Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20 years!" "Will you spend the money on a woman in the red light district instead of food?" the man asked. "What disease would I get for ten lousy bucks?" exclaimed the homeless man. "Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife." The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting." The man replied, "That's okay. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up beer, gambling, golf, and sex."

    Head retention

    Hey Worthog, That's great looking beer, I am anxious to get into that style of brewing, but lacking the equipment to do so, however that is on my list. Cheers.

    Joke For The Day!

    Here's one for you. An Irishman walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three pints of Guinness and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender approaches and tells him, "You know, a pint goes flat after I draw it, and it would taste better if you bought one at a time." The Irishman replies, Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in America, the other is in Australia, and I'm in Dublin. When we all left home, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days we drank together. So I drink one for each o'me brothers and one for me self." The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The Irishman becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way: He orders three pints and drinks them in turn. One day, he comes in and orders two pints. All the other regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss." The Irishman looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns and he laughs. "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "It's just that me wife had us join that Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking. But it hasn't affected me brothers though."

    I suppose being a Cook in the Army helped with a bit, I have a large collection of Knives, so I am always using them for something.

    Beef Jerky Recipe

    I buy my Topside from the Butcher already thinly sliced & frozen in a round similar to a large Hamburger Pattie in 1kg packs. It is easily sliced into smaller uniform size pieces & marinate overnight, takes most of the work out of it, although I have on occasion sliced my own.

    Beef Jerky Recipe

    Yeah, I agree with that, but it's still nice to have it under the Bar as an impromptu snack, just have to keep it out of sight from my mates ! Your Jerky looks absolutely great. Well Done.

    I walked into a bottleshop...

    What the hell brand was it, that's weird for 375ml ?? I know some of the so-called boutique bottle shops whack the prices up, but who could afford that ?

    Beef Jerky Recipe

    Guys on the subject of Jerky, I came across this in Coles, my local is Castle Plaza Sopping Centre/Edwardstown SA, it was reduced to $1.25 to clear, normally $6.50, I bought the last remaining boxes 2 x 12 units each, it is kin awesome !! I will still continue to make my own, but couldn't leave that there... goes perfectly with my Coopers Draught with added Grain & Hops ( attached ) I wonder why it was reduced as the Best before was next year ? Cheers Phil

    Beef Jerky Recipe

    Hi Spudley, Looks good, nice colour, I haven't tried Camel or Roo. I tend mainly to stick to Beef & make different flavours with Chicory/BBQ/Bourbon/ Teriyaki etc. My favourite will always be Chilli.

    Beef Jerky Recipe

    Hey Beers Gone Wild, I understand lot's of people can't handle Chilli, you either like or you don't. Most people tell me it's too hot ( Hello, so is the sun ) however you don't have to make it like a B.. Burner. There are lots of other nice combinations available to suit every palette. I am always experimenting with different twists to the original concept, however I am not sure about Roo/Camel/Crocodile etc .. I expect its' nice, but for the moment I will stick with Beef. Cheers.
