All Things Food / Re: canning

Did 10 qts of chicken stock today, so the chickens are done for the year Yeah!  Now the ducks and trukeys and their stock to do. But it is a couple months away. Time to think veggies, tomatoes, pickles,corn, sauerkraut and some more dilly beans. nothing better than putting your own stuff up canning, freezing or drying.

Zucc's are a bit big, take 5 smaller ones (slice 1/4 thick) fry in olive oil till soft, add chopped tomatoes and cook down. Add basil (spices of choice) and cheese and roast in the oven for 30 minutes, serve over noodles or rice, you will be in heaven.

Looks like a black cherry but if it doesn't have flowers ever, my swag is an elm of some type.

Majority is going to be flavor and aroma so no lucking out on extract effiency. I didn't want to use extracts but I guess we have accept the real world realities.

Pautucket, Hopefully next spring, maybe as close as Eau Claire at TM's place. (If he will sell it). :)  !!

Only about 10 bbls at a time, this would be a second beer and looking to sell 500 bbls a year. Figuring 10% loss or excess. Depends on extract effienciecy

Well being a newbie I got to thinking about hops and recipes. Big oops on my part I need 600#  for a modest IPA. The thing is I need them this year and now. My recipe calls for the hardest to get hops, and they are all spoken for now what? I hope to get them by hook or crook but you got to think about the availability of your raw materials.

Just another thing to think about.

I just bought one to get my fermentation chamber back. It is still the overflow freezer when the pig is butchered and all the birds are butchered.

Faced with your delema. I would go towards the economics of a chest freezer they are very green.

I'm going with the majority that have posted so far. Early morning the quiet of this time allows for conteplation and reflection to sooth the soul and it allows you to jam the heaviest rock you can handle and rock out. Very early moring allows the greatest freedom to the individual.

Have you ever sat with a beer around 3 AM and trying to understand the nuances. I don't live near any city so this can happen anytime. In the dark trying to understand the beer is like being in heaven. Analyize and then just enjoy that beer, gets no better.

How is 1318 going, I have been thinking 051 as a good cross dressing beer yeast. I bet you have thought about this yeast at least?
