Beer Battered Everything! Best Beer Batter for Frying Fish, Scallops, and Calamari -- Lent Special

I love fried fish, and I had been struggling to find a decent fry batter recipe for making it. I eventually found this incredibly simple recipe posted up on Paste Magazine, and after trying it out the first time with scallops, I fell in love. So now that it's Lent again, it's time to break out the fish!

Hitting level 85 Smithing IRL | Painting the Ingots

Back when I was visiting home for winter, I managed to snag the aluminum ingots that Diecaster_D cast in his foundry. Despite being great paper weights, I thought they could use a good paint job to actually look like something out of Runescape.

The Brake Job from Hell featuring @vinnysvic

Today we are going to feature something a bit different.
My car, a 2005 Crown Victoria was due for a brake job. When braking, I would experience some vibration coming through the brake pedal upon being compressed. It wasn't a serious issue, but it had to be fixed eventually. In the past, I had done a brake job on my other car so this was not going to be my first rodeo. I had been procrastinating on doing this task for a while, but after helping out a friend with his car earlier in the same day, I decided to stop by AutoZone to rent a torque wrench to get the job done. I figure it was a good day to do the front pads and rotors and thought it shouldn't take too long, right?

How to Make Soft Pretzels | Perfect snack to enjoy with Homebrew

^Check out the video recipe guide!

I was inspired to make these soft pretzels after reading the experience another homebrewer had making them to enjoy with his beer. So I decided to try out the recipe for myself. (thanks to /u/kyrgyznomad and his reddit post for the inspiration)
The recipe linked in his post is adapted from the website Sally's Baking Addiction. You can visit her site by clicking the link there, but I've also posted the ingredients needed at the bottom of this post. These pretzels looked simple enough to make so I went for it. Let's get baking!
