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".

So is a propane tank and burner. More so than alcohol vapor.

And if that were actually the reason, turkey fryers should be illegal too.

Sorry cap you won't convince me with that argument. Distilling is a specialized skill.

Thanks. Works now. That was interesting. A garage brewery? I'm assuming it's some sort of weekly endeavor.

Its also weird that distillation does not make alcohol. Fermentation does. http://www.gin-vodka.com/legal.html

Now that making alcohol is legal no reason distillation shouldnt be.

The law says you are not allowed to own distillation equipment at all, even if you are not using it to create alcoholic beverages.

It's quite a bit more hazardous than brewing. We spill stuff. Maybe burn our leg.  ::)

Stills can explode plus distilled spirits are highly flammable and can burn your house down.
