Here's some pure funk for all you funksters from Parliament Funkadelic. Bootsy Collins on the bass in his prime.

We want the funk. Give up the funk.

I dont refrigerate it and we keep it around for about 6 months to a year, although I am sure refrigeration wouldn't hurt. Great stuff! It will add great flavor to all kinds of dishes. Try putting a little in Marsala sauce. Trust me. ;) I usually get the medium sweet it is the one with the green label.

Slovak tonight.

Pig tongues in a Paprikash style gravy served with Hungarian dumplings.





I'm just thinking about where those tongues were before they were on your cutting board.  :o  :D

Would love some input on what base malt everybody pefers to  use for an Irish Red Ale.  I was thinking Maris Otter.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: What's your Favorite Style of Beer?
« on: January 26, 2010, 02:17:41 PM »
I recently had the Thirteenth Anniversary Celebration Stone Beer (red dragon/devil logo), which is like an Imperial Amber Ale. It was really good. A more balanced beer as opposed to the sharp hoppiness of their IPA. I enjoy their IPA as well.

Thought it was a good time to plan for the weekend. If my timing is right I will be brewing an ESB on Sunday.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Mash Hops vs. FWH
« on: January 26, 2010, 12:43:46 PM »
FWIW, I wouldn't use any recipe for PTE but the one Vinnie gives out himself (http://www.beerdujour.com/Recipes/1Pliny%20the%20Elder%20clone%20PDF.pdf)

No Randall, no MASH hops and no stinking FWH either!!!    :D ;D

I see your West Coast tendencies at work.  ;D

Yep, last Sun.  It went smoothly.  I was aiming for 5.5 gal. of 1.054 and got 6 gal. of 1.057.

Nice.

What grain bill did you end up using?

Equipment and Software / Re: Circular vs Rectangular Mash Tun
« on: January 26, 2010, 10:46:12 AM »
I don't think it should make a significant difference as long as the time /temp factor has been acheived. I use a rectangular cooler only because it was the size I was looking for at the time. Round coolers should work just as well as rectangular IMHO.

Pimp My System / Re: Brutus 10 Build

It has barely been started and I already think it is a thing of beauty! I am hungry for more
pics as well.

It is actually further along. I just need to download the photos and post them.

We call it "operator error".  ;D  Just kidding.

I like to use my refractometer during the mash and pre-fermentation because it's quick and easy. However, I always use my hydrometer post fermentation because it's most accurate and reliable at that point in the process.

I haven't had any success using a refractometer post fermentation as you are also experiencing. Maybe there's something we are missing, but I like to use my hydrometer because it's dual purpose. I can quantify the result by measuring the gravity and qualify the result by tasting the beer from the hydrometer tube.

I've been on the lookout for it. The local beer and wine stores don't carry it. I will have to take a ride down to Sam's restaurant and get it.  ;)

A very strange mix

 Jerry Lee Lewis, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Kid Rock and Keith Richards...

 Who would'a thought?

Strange mix indeed. But some real greats though. A whole lot of mileage on that stage, if you know what I mean.

Here's the most famous latin american guitar player of our time. The great Carlos Santana!

..and a real cool duo with The late great John Lee Hooker.
