given the tendency of vigorous fermentations to explode all over the place might the electrical room not be the BEST place for this wonderful hobby? just saying ALWAYS use a blowoff tube.

I've seen "In the event of rapture this car will be unoccupied".
They'll be ready for 5/21/11 and seriously disappointed if it actually happens and they remember pride is one of the big bad 7.
I would like to brew Breakfast Stout next, but am having trouble finding direct info on the basics to include.
It should include: Oatmeal, coffee, maple syrup?, chocolate, etc, right?
I've seen the BYO Founder's Breakfast Stout Recipe, has anyone had success with it?
I can do partial mash and I'd like to have it be similar to Founder's if at all possible. I plan to condition this one as long as it needs to if it's around 8 or 9% ABV. It seems there isn't a "best" consensus on adding coffee, but I think I've decided to rack to a secondary on whole beans and see how that goes.
I really enjoy big roasty stouts like Ten Fidy and Old Rasputin so the more roast the better!
Ok...now I'm just rambling. Any help is much appreciated!
Also, like any dough, a good bench rest will really make a difference - let the dough sit around for a few hours before you do anything with it to allow the flour to soak up all the moisture it can.
This sounds like a logical approach, but will it work with the chemical leavening agent? My concern would be that an extended rest would exhaust the baking soda unless you use a slow acting or double acting powder.
I want a bot that can make quesadillas.
As long as the thread is here...
My EKG don't seem to want to grow more than 5 feet tall. They've been there for about three weeks now and I scratched a little height marker into the post, they haven't gone beyond it. Am I doing something wrong, or is this normal for first-growth? My understanding was that they wouldn't produce too much the first year but they'd at least grow all the way. I sprinkled some fertilizer on them the other day so hopefully that'll yield some results. My soil is very nutrient-rich and loamy, if that helps.
Ok, who's got some recipes that feature morels? So far I've done the French creamed morel app, a morel sauce I served over grilled lamb chops, and an omelet filling with gruyere and chives.
