It would help if we knew would part of Florida, fellow Florida brewer. If far we can talk, if close we can teach and reassure

Well, this beer was not specialty enough for the Sam Adams contest((and I listed the wrong base recipe >:( ) I was concerned about that), but they said that everyone who tried it, liked it

The Burrowing Owl Brewery

The town I live in has one of the largest population of these little owls anywhere. The street I live on is about 1 1/2 miles long and has 6 nests. So then I started naming all my beers for owls

I learned this lesson recently with the Longshot competition. Gordon replied on my sheet "A better beer than the score indicates. You were marked down for how you descibed it" for my Sour mango ale

Live and learn

It seems like a lifetime away, but only 15 years to the day after this AC/DC released Back In Black.

Stellar day in Rock history

Hey bluesman,

I've been thinking of making a poolish for my Lehmann dough one of these days.  Since you've been making them for your recent doughs, maybe you can answer a few basic questions.

1) What is a poolish?

2) What is the point of a poolish?

4) How do you make a poolish?


A poolish is like a small sourdough starter...

The point is to get the yeast working and for the slightly richer flavour...

As said add all the water and enough flour to make a paste

You will then add the rest of the flour and all other ingredients when it is time to mix...which I would do several hours ahead of time

Tonight I pan roasted some(12 oz's) of mushroom slices in batches, after they finished I added some onions and garlic then add a few Tbs sour cream and a bit of cheese( although the cheese could be omitted) . In a separate pan cook up some refried beans. Put some flour tortillas in the oven to soften. Then put some beans, mushrooms, cilantro, fresh onions, tomatoes and lettuce on the tortillas, wrap and toast in a hot oven for 2-3 minutes. This will make you forget about meat

Tonight I sauteed 2 medium onions, 1 pack of sliced white mushrooms, 1 pack of Portobellos, some sun-dried tomatoes, a diced small ham steak, some fresh basil, oregano, thyme and some chicken broth thickened and put over some farfalle pasta. It was fantastic

Tonight I did a 7 hour slow braised brisket in beef stock with cilantro, 1 each dried ancho, guajillo, New Mexico, chipotle peppers and onions. I will shred the meat, reduce the sauce and make some chalupas and refried beans.

It seems that everyone agrees that competition is competition in the L.D. Carlson thread, but not here. I do not understand it! My local grocery store (Publix) was the first place down here that had Magic Hat, before any Mom & Pop that I saw

I hate when beer tastes like fruit.

Damn, how did I forget that one?  I'm with ya, Keith!  And pretty much most styles of English beer, too.

Oh, so this was a lie. ;)

Let me just say...FREAKIN' FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!  A totally delicious beer, perfectly balanced. Sour up front, but the the mango kicks in mid palate. A throughly enjoyable experience.

Thanks so much for thinking of me when you sent them up. The mango strong was a real inspiration for me to try something crazy one of these days. When I do, you'll be sure you get some!
