Yeast and Fermentation / Re: British sweet stout yeast
« on: June 11, 2012, 09:21:16 AM »
I use old 1 gal. glass jugs.  I think they were apple juice jugs originally.  They work great with a #6 rubber stopper and a bubble lock or just aluminum foil.  I got mine out of Mom's basement when we were moving her to Omaha so "free" is hard to beat.

Really, any old jug will do the job.

All Things Food / Re: Smoking Chicken - Need Brine and Rub Recipes
« on: June 08, 2012, 11:57:39 AM »
I usually keep it simple and my family loves the outcome.  I haven't ever done a brine but the meat stays moist as long as I keep the temp low.

I use a combo of Lowrey's seasoned salt, cumin, black pepper, a very small bit of cayenne and/or red pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.  I don't really measure much.  8^(  I don't even mix a rub anymore, I just shake the spices on both sides, cover for a couple of hours and then into the smoke.

Most people will tell you I'm breaking all the rules and couldn't possibly make anything edible but it works for me.  I made 6 birds, one Friday, for a chicken salad that family members who "don't like smoked food" could not stop raving about.  Of course I cheated a bit using my Weber kettle to smoke 2 birds at a time for about 3 hours and then moved them to my gas grill (set really low) until the next 2 were done in the smoker.  Rotated the first two out and the next two in each time.  It was very tender, juicy and tasted great.

I think I'm finally going to get my O-fest brewed.  I've run out of emergencies and graduations and university orientations and replacing front doors and and and ...

Popped the yeast that's been in my fridge for 2 months last night and need to make the starter tonight.
