That was the best one I could find as well. BUT he hasn't actually posted , if it worked ! ! !
But going on 'less' & it is easier to add 'more' I have opted for the lower approach

so for 5 gallons, I have gone with 1 & a half cups of Cacao nibs -remember these are canadian gallons so are equivalent to just over 6 American gallons ( a 1/4 cup per American gallon)
I can always add more during secondary fermentation if I don't have the chocolate flavour I want.

I had a Merlot 2 years ago that was A rich chocolate wine flavour that finished with the merlot on your tongue when you swallowed it. I bought a case & just had the last bottle a couple days ago. I can no longer get it at my wine store...so the quest to make my own.

Well one doubt I had about the cacao nibs in my merlot , was it would upset the acidity & affect my yeast.
The yeast is going gangbusters in my wine kit !

I am hopeful everything continues on as it usually does

On my last day of vacation in Florida and got to visit the Kennedy Space Complex. It was quiet the experience. Unfortunately I will be going home tomorrow and will miss the Delta launch. Now that would of been something to see.

Ew, Florida.

I couldn't stand it living there but it's a nice place to visit for vacation. Hope you enjoyed yours! Naples was probably my favorite place - much less hectic than Miami and a bit more authentic than Orlando

I think I can agree with that. Had to go through one of those Time Share deals for the trip (didn't buy) and got four days for Florida, two separate days on a cruise and two days at the Bahamas out of it

I've heard that Time Shares are a nightmare to own. My relatives have one for Las Vegas, and they strangely seem to enjoy it though. Do you know any strong benefits on owning a Time Share?

No. It was mostly directed at my dad. Some people my mom know say they have one and they can't get rid of it.

Up well past my bedtime because my neighbors are fighting, again. One thing I've never understood is why people stay together when they obviously hate each other.

They fight all night and all day, none of them ever accomplish anything through the fighting, and it usually ends with each a bunch of banging around and screaming, or someone storms out the door, shouting and making a spectacle of themselves, then the next day they're back together and fighting again.

Sometimes, it makes me ponder my own humanity.

Learned 2 things today.

1. Kool-Aid powder is surprisingly acidic
2. Making 18 pounds of hard candy takes about half a day.

But it tastes great! I've learned from Taco Bell that when it comes to food, flavor is far more important than what goes into it. What is Taco Bell beef made of? Who gives a fuck? It's made of deliciousness and satisfaction (well, 15 minutes of satisfaction and an hour or so of diarrhea, but those 15 minutes are well worth it.)

I was experimenting with sugar to try and make something reminiscent of rock candy, but without taking a whole week to do it, so I figured I would boil my sugar, add something grainy for the sugar to crystallize around and pour it into a lined glass, then when it hardens, pull it out of the cup and break it into pieces. It formed perfect glasslike hard candy.

After looking at the ingredients on the package, I realize that Kool-Aid is mostly citric acid.

Needless to say that expanded the flavor options for the hard candy that I'm making to sell.

And so my 30s are over today and a new decade (and new PT test bracket for the Air Force) begins...

I'm actually feeling kinda melancholy about this birthday. Where did the last 22 years go? And I don't feel as old and mature as I thought I would.

Perhaps it's because I'm still a kid at heart and have a Star Wars toy store in my basement...

That awkward moment when you long-distance drunk dial your friend's mother.

PROTIP: Specify which one is your cell and which one is your home, people.

Don't you mean:

Protip: totally make the difference between your home and cell difficult to tell. Leads to great moments with your friends.

Want to convince some stubborn men why men shouldn't be dictating conversations about women? Have him watch the 4/23 Nightly Show. See how he feels with the women on that show dictating a conversation about men.

There's been lot of controversy of the Suicide Squad Movie coming out. First with Jared Leto's "LOOK AT ME!!! I'M SO DEEP, PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO ME!" Joker, to the terribly underwhelming picture of the squad itself.

However, the real problem is, what the hell is Will Smith doing in this movie? Does DC think this is a joke? Do they really hate thier fans? Have they decided that the movie is already going to be a failure and just decided to cast the box office poison anyway? Come on, we deserve better.
