Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout

Added most of a container of PB2 chocolate to the fermenter with my Oatmeal Stout this time. It was a mess but taste testing before bottling did have a hint of the peanut flavor. I’m surprised because I have heard that you need to use a lot more than 1 container to get any flavour at all. I also used 2/3 cup white cane sugar for priming instead of brown sugar so I hope the bottles don’t explode. :)

robocopy, xcopy /j and eseutil /y

After reading a lot about the performance of the various copy commands for Windows, I did my own quick test. A Google search will most likely tell you that eseutil is the fastest of the three commands listed here but that’s not what I found. All tests involved copying an 18.4GB VM image over my 1Gb LAN with no other traffic. Source and destination machines are running 64 bit Windows 7 with SSD drives.

command time
eseutil /y 7 mins 7 secs
xcopy /j 3 mins 36 secs
robocopy 2 mins 57 secs
