Is the link dead? All I get is a black page.

Would it be possible to go to the store and get a bottle of Optimator or similar Dopplebock? One per five gallons might do the trick.

Informative! Thanks!

Interestingly, the glucose remained the same or increased slightly the entire time.

Well it was more of an acknowledgement that we had strayed from the path... ;)

That was pretty much my conclusion.

Goat milk is cool but you can make great cheese with store bought milk. It is a great way to practice. The ulta pasturized milk won't work but regular pasturized milk works.

Maybe I should read the thread better next time. ::)

Oh NO! The topic strayed  :o !!!!

And my efforts to drag it back on course probably didn't help either. ;)

BTW, nice pressure cooker. You are just using it as a double boiler there right?

Yep, It holds my 4 gallon pot so I can make 3 gallon batches of cheese.

Are you using fresh milk or store-bought?

We churn our own butter. Its easy with a mixer.

First time was an accident. We were aiming for whip cream.

Discovered that as a bartender. Nice fresh sweet-cream butter.

If one wants knowledge being an autodidact is the way to go. As homebrewers it looks like we have a bit of that bent in our personalities.  ;)

That being said I enjoy the discipline of having to attend class and study. The extraneous stuff doesn't matter except for the hot chicks.  ;D

What that has to do with beer in the bible I don't know except I went to Mass 6 days a week for 4 years in high-school and it never kept me from touching alcohol. Not once.

Other Fermentables / Re: Vinegar anyone?

That episode has been on several times since. They're fermenting something. If I can do a gallon or two a year then that'd be great. Just about what may consumption would be plus some "gifts" to friends...

Oh hohoho...

Enjoying this out of a big wine glass. Dark malts- lightly sweet, nutty and vinous. As it warms the cherry comes though in the nose and the taste. Not too bitter this one. The malt and subtle cherry are the stars here. A little dry astringency, but that's to be expected with a 9.8% ABV beer.

And again, no harsh alcohols- If the label didn't say I'd think it was regular strength and not a Quadrupel. Creeper beer.  :o

I certainly wouldn't be surprised that beer preceded mass cultivation. Grain left in jars gets wet. When the people recover the grain it's gone "funny" and they eat it any way. It becomes a wonder in their world. The rest is history. And some part of that would be in the bible.

Perhaps the original intent was to pass down detailed brewing knowledge now mostly lost over time and has become:
Throw your bread upon the face of the water, because in many days you will acquire it. Give a serving to seven and also eight, because you do not know what evil will be upon the land.
(Ecclesiastes 11:1–2)
So what makes it into the bible is this particularly cryptic phrase with additional advice not to be stingy or someone will take it anyway. :o

I found the castle game. Loved it. But launching chicken at bacon!?!?!?!?!   I love you.  


I had to go get some ribs and chicken wings after that!

When a pig gets his head slightly squashed he gets black eyes. Ouch!
