General Homebrew Discussion / Re: cooling my wort (new brewer)
« on: October 21, 2010, 09:56:44 AM »
All that being said I've done extract partial boils and added water straight out of the tap to cooled wort at least ten times and no infections.

The ice ought to stay in containers until ready for use. Store bought ice probably very risky.

Good luck.

And, they don't need a bung with the Coleman 70qt. The tubing fits the drain perfectly if you buy 1/2" OD 3/8" ID.

I'm not all that eager to try this though I will eat the hell out of some moldy stinky cheese.  ???

Thinking about the anecdotal health benefits and their citing the longevity of Caucasus peoples; I'm more inclined to believe they benefit from a diet extremely low in processed foods and that they probably walk(ed) everywhere.

Sounds like beer to me. Bible beer. It's probably still a little sweet?

Naw. This is great. These guys are entrepreneurs. They obviously have customers. My hat is off to them. It was heartening to see them doing the good work.

That's a good question. My instinct says no. But no experience so maybe it will?

You'll probably need a fining agent.

Or Moon pies...

But that's a Southern thing (I think).

It's going to be an amazing day when we see the first post from Jeff.

That's gonna be one hell of a thread!

C'mon Jeff! Each day you're doing better. Long row to hoe but you'll get there!

Salivating! ;D

Cooking my lunch right now. Bean soup... :-\ Wish I had some shrimp right now!

I like making my own pasta, but don't find it to be significantly better than dried, with the exception of gnocci. They are alway better fresh.

One would have to heat it gently and slowly. Then hit it with some heat to crisp it up a bit. Or one could use harder cheeses like feta that really don't melt very well.

Looks like they took on a bit more color this time.
Yes, definitely some nice color developed.

I'm thinking that smoking in a smaller container next time will help concentrate the smoke and thus the smoke flavor.  Maybe the grill is just too big and empty for the amount of smoke given off.

How about using a cardboard box with a lesser volume?

Well, you're supposed to boil it again.

The Pub / Re: Distilling
« on: October 16, 2010, 11:49:45 AM »
Well, maybe more laws concerning distilling could be created. For instance a special home-distilling permit if one has taken the required training courses and completed certain exams. At this point the permit holder would be expected to know how to use the proper equipment and practice safe distillation. Perhaps also there would have to be an equipment inspection at some point.

My concerns are that it isn't to be trifled with; gaining experience in the company of a knowledgeable distiller would be optimal. I'm not against distilling. Just don't want anyone to get hurt either from an accident or bad booze because they found some info on the web and decided to "try it".
