The Pub / Storms in the southeast
« on: April 28, 2011, 12:17:31 PM »
My heart goes out out to everyone killed, injured, or left homeless due to the tornadoes in the southeast.  I'm especially concerned about Keith.  A map on CNN shows a tornado hit Huntsville, where the brewery is.  Let's have some good vibes for all the people in the area and especially our brewing bro.

Beer Recipes / Belgian Quadrupel ideas
« on: April 21, 2011, 09:52:50 AM »
I think I'm gonna do a quadrupel kinda thing for my 400th batch, 2 batches away.  I'll have a slurry of WY3787 from the Patersbier I'm making this weekend.  Other than that, I'll use a bunch of Best pils malt and 1.5 lb. (liquid weight) of D2 that I've got around.  I'll check some local markets for other exotic sugars, too.  I've got a small (4 gr.?) package of grains of paradise I was thinking of using, and maybe some coriander.  What do you all think so far?  Any other ideas or suggestions?

The Pub / Duvel at Costco
« on: April 09, 2011, 08:29:04 AM »
Walked in to the local Costco the other day and there were cases and cases of Duvel stacked up.  $7.99 for a 750 ml. bottle.  I bought one to make sure it was in good condition (perfect!) and went back yesterday for a case.

All Things Food / Bread today!

About the only thing that gets me as happy as brewing is baking sourdough bread!  Got my starter cranking up the last couple days.  Fed it this AM and gonna start on the batch in another hour or so when it's bubbling furiously!

All Things Food / Cashew Crusted Halibut recipe
« on: March 29, 2011, 11:33:25 AM »
1 1/2 -2 lb. halibut steak or filet (at least 1" thick)
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs (panko preferred)
2 Tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3 Tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
2 Tbsp. chopped cashews (I prefer unsalted and I generally use a bit more)
1 Tbsp. fresh tarragon or 1/2 tsp. dried
1 tsp. lemon zest
1/2 tsp. paprika
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. vegetable or canola oil

Place halibut in a lightly sprayed 9x13 glass baking dish.  In a small bowl stir together remaining ingredients.  Press crumb mixture on top if halibut.  Bake fish until it flakes when tested with a fork, maybe 12-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the halibut.  With what we get around here it usually is more like 20-25 min.  Serve immediately with lemon wedges.

General Homebrew Discussion / Green beer
« on: March 16, 2011, 09:43:47 AM »
13 years ago, when I started brewing, there were always loads of questions at this time of year about making green beer.  I consider it a sign of the increased sophistication of homebrewing that I haven't seen a single green beer comment on any of the 6 or so forums I frequent!
