To be perfectly honest, Buckfast sounds more slightly appealing than either ... not that makes any sense to mix an upper (caffine) with a downer (alcohol).

I like the bridge best. There's a live version on their MP3-download-only live album, "Almanac: Live 2004". It's one of my favorite albums of all time, but I don't know if it's available anymore. It's from the era of "The Spine" and "No!" so you get a lot of songs from those albums, but the music is SO MUCH FUN! I listened to it again yesterday, for the first time in ages. It made me feel so good, even though the non-"No!" lyrics are often kind of morbid and/or depressing. ("No!" is a children's album. TMBG writes their children's music the same way they write their adult music, just with more child-friendly lyrics, so nobody complains when they play children's music at adult concerts.)

I'm drinking water as usual but I'm considering going to the convenience store and getting some root beer. I think I will.

Homemade soymilk.

I've always been the curious DIY sort, and I've had a package of dried soybeans staring daggers at me for several weeks now. It was surprisingly easy ... soak overnight in triple volume of water, drain, then puree in stages in a blender for 60 sec (1 part drained beans to 3 parts cold tap water), then bring the puree to a simmer (being careful to avoid a boilover), simmer and stir for 10 mins to set the proteins (what brewers call the 'hot break') and gelatinize the starches ... then you just pour though buttercloth and squeeze/discard the solids, and poof ... homemade soymilk. The 9 oz of dried beans yeilded a little under 2 qts of soy milk, which I lightly sweetened with 2 fl oz of simple syrup and 1/8th tsp of vanilla extract.

As soon as read up on the correct coagulants, I'll give tofu making a whirl ... I've made paneer before, so it should be just as easy.

Although tasty, and fun/inexpensive to make, the soymilk is just not quite as satisfying as milk ... and it doesn't go with cookies.

I love that routine ... thx for the link. :lol:

I'm mostly doing this for my wife, who's sensitive to a lot of cartoned milk and milk replacement products. I'm trying to isolate her problem to source material and/or specific additives. It's a labor of love.

Next up will be trying my hand at making cashew milk.

I presume this is meant to be somehow less disgusting than ordinary Dr. Pepper?

Ok, homemade cashew milk turned out to be MUCH faster and easier than homemade soymilk (just soak 1 hr, drain, puree 60 sec with water 4:1, fine strain, then sweeten to taste ... couldnt be easier), and arguably tastes better ... and the leftover solids are tasty too, so unlike soybeans there's zero waste. 1.5 cups of unroasted unsalted cashews yielded about 5 cups of cashew milk and cup of leftover nut pulp.

Had a feeling that would be better. I hear even the store variety cashew milk is better than store soy. :drinking:
