I think you'll have to do it longer at those temps.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Scored big-time!
« on: October 04, 2010, 10:38:47 PM »
There has been a beer-theme at the local Central Market. Tastings. Brewing demonstrations. Food pairings. Lectures by brewers and experts...

All I cared about was the 25% discount on beer sales over $50! I took an opportunity to stock up.  While there were many many choices (esp singles) I made my main focus England.

Delirium Tremens 750ml (finally get to try!)
Gulden Draak 750ml

Then I got two each of all the following:

Bad King John 500ml "A Very English Black ale"

St Petes' Old Style Porter 550ml

These 550ml Samuel Smiths:

Imperial Stout
Taddy Porter
Nutbrown Ale
Tadcaster Organic Best Ale
Old Brewery Pale Ale

Not bad for under $75. Doesn't seem like much but it's taking up a good part of my bottom shelf in the fridge. Will have to work on that. ;)

Drinking a Tadcaster right now. Surprisingly it's fairly bitter, but with malty-sweet caramel tones.

And I totally spaced off the Great Divide Tripel. My punishment is to pay full price...

If you vacuumed sealed it and put it in the freezer it probably would be fine.

I can get a whole host of Great Divide beers here. Will have to try- probably this weekend when I do s'more ribs...

Did you get to try the beer . . or even craft some ribs?   :)

Doh!

I did do some St Louis style ribs. By far my best to date. Unfortunately the Great Divide slipped my mind when at the beer store.

How does the soy sauce compare to tamari? Sorry for hijacking.

Crock pot stuff a goose in there with some veggies, dinner time.

Totally relevant.  And, probably NOT: why would soysauce feature in Slovakian cuisine? Is the Slovakian sojova omacka any different than Asian?

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / European malt extract
« on: October 04, 2010, 06:58:43 PM »
I'm thinking of returning in part extract brewing. So far my experience has been primarily with Briess or maybe Cargill.  How different is the European malt extracts for flavor and are they worth the additional expense?

Would steeping European specialty grains make up any difference if used in conjunction with domestic malt extract?

That's 160 ounces! Still haven't used all mine from 2009! They're mostly high alpha so I better get after it...

I'm going to look for it at the Indian store. Haven't been able to find the "hot" anywhere. The flavor of paprika goes well with what I cook.

Sorry no crock pot I have a pressure-cooker.

Beans would be another good idea. Especially a cassoulet. That would probably do well in a crock pot at a hunting camp.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Who messed with the grain mill?!?
« on: October 04, 2010, 01:49:55 PM »
I have a Barley Crusher mill & love it.
BUT...
One thing I noticed is that a really, really fine crush seems to get my brews a lot more dry than I want.
I'd recommend trying the factory setting for a while & then adjusting from there.

This might have to do more with water/grain ratio and temp than grist size. Though if it does affect it I'd like to know!

Darn I'm hungry now!

The soysauce looks a little odd but one finds it in lots of recipes these days. Looks good to me.

Ingredients / Re: Granola?
« on: October 04, 2010, 12:26:33 PM »
Just remember there's quite a bit of fat in granola. Might affect head retention. However, I've thought of it myself and think the flavor profile would complement many a beer.

Rereading this I'm thinking a 40qt kettle is probably the better choice. Primarily not to brew to the limits of the kettle, but to have plenty of kettle left over for when the wort foams. Hard to have a boil-over when the wort can't climb out of the pot.

I just used my old 40qt on the stove yesterday and it heated up a couple concentrated gallons just fine. Tried to boil-over but never even reached half-way. Takes quite a bit longer for six gallons but it'd still work with 4 gallons head-room for expansion and foaming.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Quick extract batches.
« on: October 04, 2010, 10:42:03 AM »
The last time I did an extract batch it took me 1.5 hours longer than AG does!  But that was mainly because I was disorganized.

Takes a bit of planning and organization, but like riding a bike. I broke my cardinal rule of no drinking on this one. I attribute the "accident" to this...
