 :D,  I hate trying to get caps off with that thing. 

Not a good flat lever on there and the rounded top bites into my hand too much.
I usually end up with the point under the cap edge and just try and pull it off. ::)

I made a couple this fall, and am totally stoked to experiment more.

Neither of mine made it very long. 
I had some aspiration for the second saison to age in the keg,
but it was gone in a month.

Still hazy, I rejoiced in the farmhouse style.
I liked it fresh. And justified it to myself by stating out loud...THIS is the traditional farmhouse style. 
Quaffing mid day whilst bucking second crop hay bales. 
Hell yes.  Give me another please. :)

Some day perhaps I might let it age to "perfection"
but man it was good early.

Have fun.

What are you going to hop yours with?
I was loving the lemon of sorachi in mine.  Cheers.

Verry sorry Vertical one,
It must be amazing to have a bird for 19 years.

 8), Dude, you should totally get a mohawk to wear with that thing.  Awesome.

 :), I thought for sure it would qualify for a squash face. Butternut nose and all? ::)

A few rogue hardneck garlico flower bulbuils.  Yesum.

 :) Fantastic.
Terpichore got me.  Apparently.

Really glad I don't have to learn that language.  I already speak English good. ;D

Pretty good beer year here in retrospect.

Looks like I made about 85 gallons.  
Wow, that seems like a lot, considering I drank most of it. :o
hmmm, I have developed some back fat.  I can feel it.
That's a problem.

Well in 2011
I fell in love with the lemon of sorachi,
learned to put beer in kegs,
became intrigued with a particular attentive saison yeast,
decided I had way too many 5 gallon carboys,
and learned a great deal reading from your shared expertise here.

Goals could be to:
share my beer
perfect the plinyesque
develop the idea of a session ipa
experiment with the Colorado farmhouse saison
get some prolonged bitterness from the Baltic
acquire a new "drip tray" mat in front of the keg fridge
plant and grow another couple Crystal and Mt Hood towers

Cheers to the new year!

 :D, Just remember, you have Denver to thank when they let him score on a sneak and got that monkey off his back. :P

I am totally impressed by their come from behind domination of late. 

You will never get a headline about Tebow sexually assaulting someone and I highly respect him for that.
I guess they don't cover him kissing teamates on ESPN radio? 
Hopefully some day he can come out of the closet.

Oh yea, did you see that arguably the worst team in the AFC West won it?   ::)
All new season start this week.  I am sure Tebow will have his confidence back on Sunday.

Man, I'm glad we aren't getting that. Highs in the 30s, though, and no snow in the forecast. :(

True, balmy bluebird and snowless doldrums
but I spotted snow at the end of the 10 day. :o  um yea, 7 January. ::)

Straight shotting early morning hoarfrost here,
and eager to get it.

Did I say Balmy?

Dehydrators work well, but for my time and money..

I was thinking my dehydrator a bit short...
but vacation is for stuff like this.
Jerking meat, waxing ski, salving boot, splitting kindling.... 8) yea buddy.

I figure I can slab in about 5 pounds of meat in my dehydrator,
and get about 1 pound of jerky for that.

Three days, three pounds.
I can handle the schedule right now.  
But yea, a whole animal, something bigger needed.

Get a Bull or a Cow / Calf ???

Yearling tender.
Counting my blessings here.

Wow.  Thanks for the tips on this.
I now have a pound in the freezer.

Elk jerky.
I seasoned with some mountain man seasoning.

Thanks again for the tips,
I cant stop eating it.  breakfast, no problem. lunch, you bet. ruin your dinner? why not.
super tasty and crumbly.  cutting against grain key.
Dental floss in pocket.

Two batches in prep. One in dryer and one marinating.
Should have around 3 pounds dried come the weekend.
Wow.  Way better than on the grill.

Cheers to jerky. 8)

My wife gave me some wicked good longies.
You know, long underwear.

I consider brewing in longies....wearing no pants. :o

Free balling a kilt? dang, you boyz are tough.
Cheers to that, but yea, don't let me see you get upended.
I love me some bifurcation. :D

Living in a place where the neighbor has a grain mill ain't all bad. :o


Beer Recipes / Re: Amarillo & Citra IPA
« on: December 30, 2011, 01:39:28 AM »
There are so many ways to make an ipa,
but I will be with blatz on this one.

More hop flavor.

I love the Citrillo.
That is, equal parts citra and amarillo. 
My special problem is that I am always looking for more hop flavor and aroma.
So keep that in mind when listening to me.

I don't mind the warrior bittering charge, but if so, I think you need to make up the Citrillo late in the boil,
with a hop barrage,
like an ounce each at 20,10,5, and 0.
and at least an ounce each for the DH.

Anyway you craft it, those hops are a great combination!  8) Cheers.
Have fun.

My spouse thought it best to scuttle the clutch and send poor Whitey back to the coop.

I couldn't do it.  She looks like a mother ptarmigan up there. Sitting on 5 eggs.

I will be sorry if they hatch and freeze.  Maybe she knows this is a balmy winter. :-\

Anyway, enough about picky hens.

Running out of silly pictures for this thread,
so perhaps this for your consideration:

Montana storm.
