Hey on that Honey Porter Whitehouse recipe, did you really cook a 2 gallon wort (or whatever it calls for) and then add the rest of the water after the boil? I'm thinking I'm just going to boil the whole 5 gallons and do it right. The White House must be in a super sorry state if they can't afford a 8 gallon aluminum kettle.

I have never done a partial boil, and I see no reason to. Though.. I have heard there isn't much difference when people are doing extract. It goes against my instincts as I would think the hop utilization would be much better in the full boil and the maillard reactions would be better as well. I'd just do the full boil. The recipe is probably designed for a 1st time brewer that didn't want to invest in the equipment.

It just loses something when paired with something as generic and not ridiculous as Spartacus.

After my fourth attempt, and second in this game, I've finally won the European Super Cup. 3-3 then penalties vs. Arsenal.

I can't even get out of the group stage in Champions.

Can't feel too bad, my two best players are 19 and 22. Plenty of time to tinker.

In my fifth season I'm taking only my second shot at the CL, my European record is both amazing and terrible

First season - in the UEFA Cup, think I made past the first knockout round
Second season - lost in the final CL qualifying to Heerenveen, won the UEFA Cup
Third season - Went out of the CL despite having 10 points
Fourth season - lost in the final CL qualifying to Nurnberg (who I beat 4-0 in a pre-season friendly, and who ended up relegated at the end of the year), won the UEFA Cup again
Fifth season... well, I've made it to the group, got Sporting Lisbon, CSKA Sofia and Shakhtar. Things are looking up!

Did you just get easy draws in Europa??

Because I've made it to the semi's in that competition twice and had face Arsenal and West Ham. I had no shot.

Alas, the problem with FM07 is that reading up on it online it seems that league reputation doesn't change, which would explain why despite three straight league titles and those two UEFA Cup wins I have players wanting out because they want to win trophies and feel they won't achieve that with me. Which is very annoying, though I managed to win the 2010 UEFA Cup after selling my two best midfielders in January.

Ed - And West Ham in FM 07 aren't fair. They've got Tevez and Mascherano.

Do you dilute it by any chance? I buy those drinks (freakin' awesome), but I fill a glass with 80% water and 20% Arizona.

Spoil:
I found a new way to cheat on FM, because I effin suck in coaching I prepare the the starting XI and go on vacation and let my experienced, but awesome assistant coach win me the games.

Current situation: LAST game of the season, tied with Man City and whoever wins gets Europa spot.....well I play Man City on my last game. Scared as hell.

If you let the assistant manager coach the game, he's going to change your starting XI. Oh and hiding when you're playing in a big game, who are you, Ozil?

And no, I don't dilute it. Too much work.

Da Ali G Show was frigging brilliant!



Probably one of the things I laughed at the most was that clip, the way he just uses "BLT" in place of "WMD" and Buchanan just goes along with it....

Going to Willy's Wings tonight, the official wings place for the Colorado Avalanche. No really, they have this really cool picture inside where every Avs player is dressed up like a biker, all in interesting poses. Forsberg is my favorite.

Cherry Cricket in Cherry Creek is considered the best burger in town. Or you can try Mr. Landeslog's place Bad Daddy's in Cherry Creek as well.

Didn't know you were in town, a belated welcome
