Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Dregs harvesting
« on: June 12, 2012, 09:48:06 AM »
What I would do is just take the yeast from primary, wash it, and put it in the back of the fridge. You should have 2 pint jars or so, and those will last quite a while in your fridge, and then step those up (which would be significantly easier than stepping up dregs or a slant) if its been a couple weeks. You will get some drift, but it shouldn't be too bad over 4-5 generations.

All Things Food / Re: Kimchi stew
« on: June 10, 2012, 09:19:33 PM »
Kimchi can be pretty stinky. It is similar to a spicy sauerkraut, but there is some other stuff (fish sauce) in there that is a bit funky.

Just as a heads up, if you throw some kimchi with (Asian Style) grilled meat, you get some real tastiness. Slightly charred kimchi is awesome, one of the only ways I enjoy cabbage.

Also, Kochukaru (Korean chili Powder) and Kochujang (Korean Chili paste) Have a lot more flavor than heat, and I like to use it in many of my dishes that need a bit more chili flavor, whether they are Asian or not.

Here is my standard Korean style barbecue recipe. I use Kalbi-style short ribs or thin cut top round steak.

Soy Sauce
Rice Vinegar
Toasted Sesame Oil
Sugar, Honey, or Brown Sugar
Minced Garlic
Grated Ginger

I mix all of that in a mixing bowl until it tastes like I want it, and then marinate the ribs or steak for 2-6 hours. Grill the meat 2-3 minutes on each side, along with some slices of onion (I just slice the whole onion about 1/4-1/8 inch thick and throw the whole slice on the grill) Kimchi goes great on the grill too, 1/2 - 1 minutes depending on the grill heat.

I know that was all kind of off topic, but I figured it was a good place to throw some more info on kimchi.

Bellevue Square.
All the shopping a wife could manage, and if she is anything like my wife, she could probably spend the entire weekend in there. I am pretty sure that is where my wife will be most of the day on Saturday, because she doesn't have tickets (and doesn't want to go) to the seminars. Its also right across the street from the main conference.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: forgot to clean my mash tun cooler
« on: June 06, 2012, 10:15:40 AM »
We had this discussion a few months ago, and I think the guy put some oxyclean in there and let it soak for a couple days, and it turned out fine. I left grain in my cooler for a week, but with just a little pbw for a couple days it all came out fine. However, throwing it out and getting a new one will work if you don't want to put in the work.

Here is the thread.

Ingredients / Re: Jasmine Rice in a beer?

You are correct, The Bruery uses Thai basil. I had another beer with lime leaves and lemongrass... must have confused the 2. Now I need to figure out which beer that was. It was very tasty, subtle citrusyness, but different from hop citrus notes.

I love jasmine rice in cooking, but I don't think the flavors would stand up in a beer. If you want to include rice for the novelty, and to keep with the Asian theme, it isn't going to hurt, I just don't think that flavor will make it into the finished beer. The Bruery makes a "Thai-inspired" Tripel called Trade Winds Tripel made with lime leaves and lemongrass, and that is very tasty. If I wanted to do a Thai type beer, I would go in that direction.
