Didn't Freddy Mercury sing a song about False-bottom Girls?  (get on your bikes and ride!)   ;)

They make the rockin' world go 'round!

Unless it's a special situation, like Big Brew or Learn to Brew Day, none at all.  I wait til everything is done, cleaned up, and put away.  Drinking while brewing increases the likelihood I'll screw something, and the cleanup seems like much more work if I've been drinking.  Not to mention that I usually start by 9 AM and I just don't want to drink beer that early.

+1 on the cleanup - it's onerous enough without any beer onboard, but man I dread cleaning and outting away after a beer or two...

I have a grinder (hand-crank) & this sounds awesome.  I may have to pick up some tri-tip & smoke it for some chili once the weather gets a bit better around here (Seattle - rainy all week... month...). 

I'm in the 'burbs north of Seattle - gotta grill in the rain, or you cain't hardly ever grill!

I like using tri-tip for making chili. The meat texture really lends itself well for that but I haven't tried Q'ing one yet. That sounds great and looks even better deepsouth.
Do you cube the tri-tip for chili, or have it ground?  I've been trying various chili recipes looking for "the one", and read somewhere that coarse-ground (chili grind) tri-tips are excellent in chili.  I don't have a meat grinder, so the butcher would have to do it for me, but it sounds delicious!
I recommend grinding but that's just my preference. I prefer a more consistent texture for my chili and a "chili grind" allows for that. Just ask the butcher to give you a "chili grind".

I also like Euge's recommendation of grilling then grinding if you have the ability that sounds like a great idea.

Thanks...I prefer ground beef, too.  Grilling and then grinding it would add a nice smoky note to the chili - I'd like to give that a try, but it'll have to wait until my kitchen becomes better equipped...

OK, so I don't have a need to grate Parmesan on my halibut, but I'm going to put it on linguine with white clam sauce, or other things with shrimp or crab. 

Mmmmmmm, linguine with white clam sauce.  That's good eatin, right there.

The Pub / Re: Just had a great shower beer

And I had to let everyone know. I just love me a good shower beer. Been a while since I had one. Was freezing the twins off, so I got in a really hot shower, with a Dechutes Inversion IPA, and all was good after.  ;D

I like doing that in the summer after a day of hot yardwork - a cool shower with a Deschutes Twilight, or an Alaskan Summer Ale...or any beer along those lines really

fatdogale likes tubercles thinking.


Tubercle makes what he likes.

No need to try and duplicate commercial stuff, the original can be bought out right for a lot less trouble.

Don't try to make anything to style and send to a judge either. That will happen as soon as they start sending me one of theirs.

Plus, their taste may not be as refined as mine and what I think is a good brew may not be to their liking. 8)

Ingredients / Re: Spelt Malt

If memory serves - spelt is a gluten-free grain, ok for use by folks with celiac disease.  I reckon you could make a beer those folks could drink...

I guess memory no longer serves - it's some folks with wheat allergies that can better tolerate spelt, not the folks with celiiac.  Spelt contains gluten...

Anybody ever use it?  Why would I use spelt malt instead of malted wheat?

Butter milk is a great marinade for fowl, the healthy bacteria and fats in butter milk help the meat start breaking down to become more tender.

For really good fried chicken.Start by marinading the chicken parts in buttermilk. Then dredge them in flour drop them in a pan full of hot lard and you will have the best fried chicken in the world. Coarse you have to add some other flavors but Im not giving away my secret mixture of eleven herbs and spices.

Thanks Colonel..er, Cap.  That sounds delicious!

And I found their watermelon brew and Monk's Blood were just OK.

Ugh...the watermelon beer.  Like drinking a wheat beer with a jolly rancher in your mouth.  I'll not be having that one again.
