I know Ron has been trying to catch Denny, but with Denny posting like a bunny (expletive here), I don't hink that will ever happen.

I think this may wind up being a color enhanser for an upcoming brew....
What a lovely pyrope color to add to a beverage and the starch in them should
be as good as any pumpkin or yam...or packing peanut.
Anyone ever try em?
I have made wine with them.
You may be surprised. A friend made a wheat beer that used lots of beets. No red color or flavor from the beets whatsoever.
I have found the best way to avoid breaking my hydrometer, is to have a spare one available.
Ever since I broke mine and bought two, one as a spare, I have not broken one since!
Works the same way for me!
This has me wondering about all the posts I've read warning of grassy, or vegetal, off flavors after prolonged dryhopping.
Congratulations on discovering this myth for yourself. I've found the same thing.
Not sure what I'm making, but I am brewing on Friday. I have lots of Munich and Pale Ale malt on hand. Maybe a pound or two of pilsner. Any ideas?
All Munich AIPA!
That's an interesting idea! I definitely have enough grain for it.
If you plan on aging the beer I recommend cubes over chips. Chips are great for beers that you only intend to age for 1-2 weeks in the secondary. But you really don't want to leave the beer on the chips for longer than this. With cubes you need to age the beer longer, 1-3 or more months depending on how much you use or how much oak you want. The oak comes through slower and, IMO, is a little more "polished" than the chips.
The order of the day was Smoked Beef Brisket.
I used Steven Raichlens dry rub overnight then marinated for a few hours in "Pride of the Deer Camp BBQ"
I used Apple, Oak and Hickory. Smoked for three hours then wrapped in Aluminum foil for two more hours.
It turned out excellent!
Tender and tasty!
Yeah, it's sad. His music actually spanned generations. He used to play at my high school dances in the late sixties and very early seventies (Ronnie Dio and the Elves) in upstate NY. My daughter is into his metal stuff.
Really!? What city / venues? I grew up in Saratoga, So I'm just curious.
