Dry vs Wet Measuring There's a reason why there are measuring devices designed for liquid and dry measurements but most likely not for the reason you think. Wet and dry measuring devices are exactly the same volume, the difference is in the design. Measuring cups and spoons for dry ingredients are engineered to be filled to the brim so the excess can be swept off easily for an exact measurement. Liquid measuring devices have brims so you don't have to worry about spilling. So, if you are in a pinch, you can use either measuring device.
My Favorite Pan My favorite pan is a twenty dollar cast iron pan. I remember vividly how my step-father coveted his iron pan and warned us about not using soap to clean it. Seasoned and maintained properly, an iron pan can last forever. It is better than any non stick pan and far more durable. It's thick base holds heat better than any pan in my arsenal and prevents food from burning by dispersing the heat.
I don't drink a lot of porters or stouts, but when I do, this is one of my favorites. Infused with coffee and vanilla, this porter is heavy on coffee with notes of vanilla to brighten your taste buds. The coffee is aggressive so it's not for everyone. You will taste bitter but also sweetness. In fact, there are so many different flavors in this porter at different times during the trip from lips to stomach that I found myself enjoying the journey with every sip. Still, I think a 22oz bottle is better to enjoy with friends as this beer can be a bit overpowering.
