That is a bunch plus. A whole shipping container?

I assume so but I was in the lab when they were delivered, so I don't know.  There are a lot more that are not seen in this picture.  Maybe up to 2 containers.

Denny!  I'm shocked!  I thought you would be a lot more open minded than to just dismiss an entire variety.

These 'pillow' bales arrived today at BSG for pelletizing.  Just thought it was interesting

All Things Food / Blue Apron
« on: January 21, 2016, 07:54:06 AM »
I've never posted here, but after last night's meal I'm motivated to.  My wife and I subscribe to a meal delivery service called Blue Apron.  For $60 per week we get three meals for two people.  All the ingredients are there, with no waste.  They takes typically 30 minutes to prepare.

Anyway, last night was a 10.  It was "Korean Tteok & Spicy Pork Ragu."  Wow good.  Spicy with depth of flavor, great texture contrasts...  I could go on.

You know it was good when you're still thinking about it the next morning!

The Pub / Re: Whiskey
« on: January 21, 2016, 07:42:49 AM »
I don't know how available it is outside of the Pacific Northwest, but hands down my favorite whiskey is Pendleton's 1910.  Very smooth, very flavorful, and around $40.

Wood/Casks / Barleywine in a Whiskey barrel?
« on: January 10, 2016, 04:36:08 PM »
I'm thinking about doing a Barleywine next, kind of along the lines of Avery's Hog Heaven.  As I'm sure you know, this beer is very hoppy with assertive dry-hopping.  How do you think that will work aging it for a couple of months in my rye whiskey barrel?  I have aged a RIS in it after I got it, so a lot of the whiskey and wood is gone.

I find myself wondering if anyone has tried dry-hopping after barrel aging, or at the end of the aging time in the barrel.  My first negative thought is about oxygenating the beer too much.  Thoughts?

You got it Jon.  I PM'd you.

You know what I'd really like to do is send half of these hops to someone who is good at brewing IPAs and wants to experiment with them.  All I ask is that you post what your recipe is and tasting notes.  PM me if you're interested.

Ingredients / Idaho 7 hops
« on: January 06, 2016, 08:20:59 PM »
Has anyone used this hop or know anything about it?  I just got a couple of pounds from my boss.  The only thing I can find out about it is that Sierra Nevada uses it in one of its Harvest Single Hop beers.  Their words: "Complex fruity aromas of orange and apricot mesh with hints of black tea-like character and a pleasant fresh herbal bouquet."  Apparently it is also now being called: "007: The Golden Hop."  I like Idaho 7 better...

The harvest Alpha was 14.1, so I'm guessing the pelleted is around 12+.  No info on oils.

Can anyone help with further info?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: safale us-05
« on: January 04, 2016, 09:31:35 AM »
I love looking at mine too.  I wait 8 hours or so then check every couple of hours.  Part of that is to  gain data points on how yeast responds in various situations, but most of it is that I just love watching it bubble.  It makes me happy.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Whirlpool/ 0 Minute Addition Difference
« on: January 03, 2016, 05:42:32 PM »
At Jim's suggestion, the next experiment on the Experimental Brewing podcast will test immediate whirlpool hops vs. 120F whirlpool hops.  Get involved!

Has anything happened with this?  I get a message saying "Access Denied."

Also, KlickitatJim, do keep us posted on your APA experiment.

I haven't heard of a change (not that I necessarily would).  Usually IPAs change dramatically with time though.  Can you read the date on the bottles?

All Things Food / Re: My riff on Roberta's dough recipe
« on: December 29, 2015, 07:29:39 PM »
My grill doesn't get as hot as my oven.  About 375-400* on the grill (gas) and 550* on the oven.  I may pull the trigger tomorrow (payday) on the pizza stone.  I love pizza but can do without all the added grease on most commercial offerings.

Equipment and Software / Re: Help a poor guy with his new plate chiller
« on: December 29, 2015, 10:22:19 AM »
I want to see someone build a chiller system out of an old truck radiator. It would need air moving over it, so they could mount it to the front of an old Buick with the boil kettle up high and the fermentor down low. Then just drive around till the wort is chilled.

I do enjoy your posts Jim.
