An avid, ambitious homebrewer, I'm currently brewing on an all-electric system capable of 20+ gallon batches.

comment Water content of salted butter
Closest I've got so far is Land o' Lakes' FAQ: Salted and unsalted butter can be used interchangeably.

comment Water content of salted butter
I've never heard such a thing. Searching around is only turning up anecdotal evidence ("I was told by this pastry chef..."). Now you've got me curious.

comment Cooking an egg without oil or butter
Also I just realized this is a necro-answer. Ocaasi hasn't been active here for 2 years.

comment Cooking an egg without oil or butter
+1 This is a great answer. Well written, answers the question and offers good, related advice. For my own part, I find aerosolized cooking spray far superior to wiping with an oily paper towel, from a non-sticking point of view. Not sure why, but I've tested it again and again with the same results. I've also started cooking eggs in a Debuyer iron pan, and the results are nothing short of amazing.
