BTW Denny, he claims you stole the mushroom beer idea from him :-)
I absolutely did and I freely admit it! Credit where it's due, ya know! The very first brewing book I got, that came with my original kit, was Randy's Brewer's Companion, not Papazian's book. It mentioned Nirvana, Randy's chanterelle beer. Having an abundance of chanterelles around, I had to try it.
