    Reading about Irish Moss, a red atlantic seaweed used for clarity in beer. I forgot to buy a whirlfloc tablet, so I’m taking this route instead.

    新年快樂! Happy New Year!
As we float into the year of the Dragon, there are some things you need to know in order to make the best of this holiday. First, how to wish others prosperity in the coming year: gong xi fa cai. Ok, now that you’ve gotten that formality out of the way - onto the beer. Tawian beer is making inroads along Bedford, challenging the longevity of PBR. Best paired with hot and sour soup, while wearing glasses frames sans lenses. 
 And should you find yourself wandering towards Nom Wah Tea Parlor after tomorrow’s parade, this guide should be helpful in illustrating the many other beer Yins in the world of Chinese food Yangs.

    This week: BUTTERBEER!

    We are super sad to say goodbye to our good friends Harry, Hermione, and Ron, but sneaking a flask or two of this sweet, frothy drink into the Deathly Hallows premiere will dull the pain. Especially since we added a shot of bourbon to each glass.

    Click the player above to watch the full episode for this easy, unhealthy, celebratory drink. Accio mug!

    And, hey, why not reblog the crap out of this video and make us feel super good about ourselves? You know you want to. You know we love you.

    YOUR LATEST EXCUSE FOR SMELLING LIKE BEER IN THE MORNING


    I’ve told you before, but maybe you forgot - beer soap is the new dope! Everyone is raving about their amazing new suds. WELL it just so happens that I got some fan mail and guess what - it was beer soap!THANK YOU MADAME LEIGH LEIGH!! Ok, so actually I’ve been holding on to this gem for a little while - I wanted to save it for my new apartment and my fresh lease on life (ok, maybe I’m getting carried away).

    Yep, my skin is soft and the soap smells good you might think it’s for eating and not washing. You hate that this stuff wasn’t trendy when you’re mother was threatening to wash your mouth out with soap for swearing.

    If you are so bold and crafty that you would like to attempt making this yourself, there’s a great methodology provided here. But, if I catch you selling it at Bklyn Flea this summer, I will smack you. Just because.

    10 Foods You Can Allegedly Make In A Coffee Maker →

    Hmm…this might call for a live blog.

    10. Beer

    This sounds insane, but bear with us. Southern Fried Science has produced the definitive article on “how to brew beer in a coffee maker, using only materials commonly found on a modestly sized oceanographic research vessel.” They recommend using cereals for grains, vegemite for malt, and seaweed for hops. Amazing.

    1. Grind up your ‘grains’ (but not so much that it becomes powder).
    2. Place your ‘grains’ in coffee pot (not the filter basket, the carafe).
    3. Run 2 cups of clean water through coffee maker and let it sit on the hot plate for an hour. This releases all the good chemicals from you ‘grains’ and creates a fluid called wort.
    4. Strain the wort through the coffee filter and place the filter full of ‘grain’ into the filter basket. Add the ‘malt’ to the filter basket. Pour the strained liquid back into coffee maker and add 1 cup of water.
    5. Run the wort through the coffee maker 5 times, each time adding 1 cup of water.
    6. Pour the wort into the saucepan and boil for 45 minutes. Two minutes before boiling is done, add the hops.
    7. Carefully pour the wort into the canning jars.
    8. Let the wort cool to between 60 and 70 F. Once it is cool enough to touch the outside of the jars without burning, pitched the Bakers’ Yeast into the mixture.
    9. Seal jar with a handkerchief and rubber band over the mouth, and let sit for 3 to 5 days.
    10. And table spoon of sugar to the jar and seal with the lids, making sure they’re air tight.
    11. Store in a cool, dark place where it will not be disturbed for a week.
