All Things Food / Re: Poblanos
« on: December 28, 2011, 08:08:08 AM »
Hello again,

Winter is here, and there are dried poblanos in the freezer.

To use dried poblanos....do you just rehydrate these to use them? 
Mine are seriously dry and chip like.

Would you pay attention to the amount of soak water, or do you toss that?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Blue, orange, yellow, rose. round, lumpy, fingerling, oblong. mealy waxy, fluffy, creamy, buttery. Baked, fried, boiled, roasted. they're all good

Amen brother.  I love the potato. 
Although rice and beans takes the prize for me. 
Our "rice" is a mix of short grain brown rice, wheat berries and barley.  Yum.

If I don't eat meat my skin starts to crack and bleed in a few days, then after a week my immune system completely fails. 

^^^this made me laugh. :D

I'm going to go take my first shower in five days, then have a beer or eight.

Paying your dues
at altitude in the Colorado Territory
not all bad.

Plenty of men have passed through that town,
ore the years
happy to pay plenty of coin
for a hot water sponge bath

We are all a bit spoilt these days.
For you, alternate craft brew within walking distance.
Cheers.

How did you come out on the thaw?


One time I did that "leave the faucet dripping" trick,
and came up with stalactites and stalagmites. ::)

I guess that is good.

I know the wife is going to have them in the livingroom. ::)





In the spirit of this thread,

I can smell the lobsters are still here.

Boulder, speaking of hens, Whitey dissapeared last week; thought a fox got her.
Found her yestern at the top of the hay in the barn.  Setting.

Crazy.  That would be her third batch this year. :o



You better hide the butter knives.

Ingredients / Re: help me choose hops
« on: December 22, 2011, 05:47:24 PM »

That leaves me with Sonnet Goldings or EKG.  I like them both a lot.

going on about the difference between 14 and 18 bucks?
I'm cheap. ;)

Personally I would not even worry about the cost difference.
It might make me feel better if I understood why a hop grown less than 150 miles from me is more expensive than one grown more than 30 times further away.  This is the main source of irritation.

It is a whole pound of hops.  How many gallons can you make with that?
40 last time.

Sonnet.  because something with ™ behind the name has to be better ;)
Sonnet, because it is local.  First Gold and Sonnet it is, placing the order now.




 :), I guess I was just saying that for four bucks difference in your choices,
you should pick the hop for what it contributes,
and forget about the cost.

It is true that locally produced goods can be more expensive than mass produced foreign commodities,
and I think it is cool that you will support local agriculture,
despite your admitted cheap nature. ;) 

Cheers to a few more pounds in your stash.

I will say nothing about dirt hops, but my favorite is Willamette dammit.

Lots of information out there.  The annual hop growing threads on Northern Brewer are good :)

Also, I like this manual : http://www.crannogales.com/site/manual.php

Cool workshops here:  http://www.gorstvalleyhops.com/

I totally want to see you post up some weazletoish drunken blather :D



Harsh.... ;D

 ;) I knew you would secretly love the term "weazletoish".   ;D

Saison de Noel is our first annual Christmas release. This is a high
gravity black saison laced with subtle Christmas spices. Belgian spice
is prominent in the nose along with notes of chocolate and espresso.
The pallet is smooth with hints of dark, tart fruits blended with
semi-sweet chocolates and finishes with mellow roast character and
alcoholic warmth. Available December 22nd. ABV 9.8%
Sounds really good!  What a business you are in, cheers to the explosion.
I bet we could all could drink pallets of that stuff.  Srsly, all in sincere constructive pointers.

Wow, it truly is amazing the amount and diversity of crafty brew offerings
across this reborn brewing nation. 8)

Happy holidays and good luck.

Ingredients / Re: Stocking up on hop pellets
« on: December 20, 2011, 05:06:46 PM »
Stocking up on hops is a sickness.  I freely admit I am an addict. :-\

True as mort says, I have tons..well pounds of homegrown goodness,
but the trademarks on 'rillo,simcoe,sorachi keep me ordering.

Totally planning on expanding the Mt Hood and Crystal supply next year.

On that note,
Properly stored, pellets last a long time in the freezer. 8)
