              Don't get me wrong, it looks delicious, but he's overcomplicating that so much =)

              You don't need to drain it, you don't need to press it.

              Also, cured salmon that you fry up is delicious =)

                            Idk if brad or ba will see this but it’s “ it’s alive “ I think needs beer or wine or meed some kind of fermented alcohol I think it fits his show and would be cool Ik he’s done kombucha and other drinks but I don’t think he’s done that so....
