Also live near Wrigley. Routine many times has been get beer, drink a bunch on purple line to Evanston, get off train, find spot on golf course field or parking lot to drink. Usually a quiet and sober affair. There will be Michigan people everywhere.

I think holistic performance of the defense plus qb play (x2) looked good enough to inspire confidence. I'm encouraged.

I am extremely confident that we will win the Big Ten. The game against Notre Dame was a meaningless warmup. Bookmarking this post and will own it.

Heading there with no tickets in hand. Tailgate event at ND law school means I will likely cause some sort of trouble.

Appreciate the thought that went into the reply...though I would've expected you'd be on board with hockey being the greatest sport on Earth!

Football is objectively just not a great sport. Michigan football is a great spectacle and event.

I like my Nest (and all things Google) but the "learning" was driving me nuts. Maybe my schedule is too varied as I either work from home or travel depending on day/week, but ultimately turned off many of the features for now. The utility for me is basically using phone as UI.

07/25/2018 - 10:33am Mostly on the entertainment…

Mostly on the entertainment side of the smart home spectrum for me...

Google home, Chromecast audio for stereo, Chromecast on all TV's, Nest thermostat, MyQ garage door opener. And of course a Google phone to control all of this stuff.

I think it's preference, and slightly different size proportions. I went ball lock as the equipment seemed more widely available.

Also, all recipes are on BrewersFriend in case anyone is a member

Good water...lucky to have Lake Michigan water here in Chicago so no additions really required.  What you mentioned about mashing in coolers is a bit concerning...that's essential to my process.

07/21/2018 - 2:03pm I was lucky as my first 1…

I was lucky as my first 1 gallon kit was all grain so I just stuck with it.  I think I've got the "how to do all grain in a small space" thing pretty much down now.  Check out BIAB as it might be a great option instead of the "traditional" all grain which I feel just takes too much equipment/space.

07/21/2018 - 2:01pm Great topic!!

I have an all…

Great topic!!

I have an all grain setup using Brew In A Bag method for the last few years.  I've got my home/condo brewery in a pretty stable position now in Chicago despite relatively small space:

  • Brew day: all done in the kitchen; 10 gallon cooler mash tun with the grain bag inside; all heat using the gas range...no issues getting 6+ gallons to a boil; just finished a project yesterday to plumb in my wort chiller under the kitchen sink (though I will note - I did no chill for a few years and just left the kettle out overnight covered with lid with no issues...in case anyone is concerned about no chilling mechanism)
  • Fermentation: I have a 7.2 cu ft chest freezer in basement storage area, hooked up with a temp controller + heating pad inside to dial in temps; best investment I have made in brewing for sure as temp control was always an issue
  • Serving: kegerator handing down from a fellow MGoBlogger which I just converted from single tap commercial/sanke to dual tap ball lock for corny kegs

On Draft:  Ann Arbor Pale Ale
Fermenting:  Coffee Cream Ale

So I know they are known for the traditional Reuben...but damn it the TNT Cowboy Reuben is fantastic!

Moved out of Ann Arbor (for a second time) about a month ago and did Zingerman's lunch, Buddy's dinner on the last day.  It was a delicious but sad day.

One of the most pathetic things I've heard. What an absolute loser.

Like your style, though I often go with Memphis or Carolina style bbq over Texas.  Can't believe I left pulled pork off my list...I need to repent to the pig gods.

A few that come to mind...

  • Ribeye, Ribs, and Bacon in the meat category
  • Italian Subs, Burritos, and Gyros in the "sandwich" category
  • Coleslaw, bbq baked beans, grilled corn on cob in the sides category
  • Caprese in the salad category
  • Cheesecake in the dessert category

And now I am salivating.

This was my concern in moving back to Chicago from Ann Arbor. But we opened the account in metro Detroit, now I share in Chicago and still get FSD for Wings games and thus avoid buying NHL Gamecenter.

Ok I'll say it...BTB stinks. Panchero's rocks.

Totally agree and used to switch off between those two spots for shakes. Rarely for pizza or burgers.

Really fantastic match earlier. Tough loss for Rafa. Hope the Saffa (and former B1G athlete) Kevin Anderson can take Novak Sunday.

My apologies, don't understand the new site. :(

 

Anyway, why would you root against Serena?!
