Yesh, scary stuff Cap. :o

I though you were getting out of there and headed up state? 
You don't have any eucalyptus there do you?

Nate, with your humor, fermentation temps are soon on your horizon.
Best wishes for breaking through.

Shucks on the mushrooms.  Still lots of time to get some.
Hella good landscape to wander around in.

I met some shroom hunters once, collecting for restaurants in Aspen.
Not my kind of folks. They slept in their BMW all night in the forest and drained the battery listening to tunes.  Ragged, I gave them a pull start.  They wondered why I would not tell them where the chantys were I had seen that morning.  Come on man.

Hot springs up to 113?  Climate change fer shure. ::)

 ;)  Good luck next trip.  Lots of jealous heads here who wish they could jump in the Subi and head for the hills.

Man that is cool.  You are really starting to answer the WHY in Wyoming.

Speaking of still snow,
I got to foot ski a massive slab this week way up in the headwaters of the Rio Grande.
Good times in the Colorado alpine.

Speaking of snow already,
I can only point to the massive hail storm we got
on the CDT which collected 12 inches deep in debris flows on the trail.
Made for some good graupelly ball bearing snowconeish treat.
Alls good before the monsoonal flow of 1 pm thunderlinghtening show!

Cool pic of the moose.

this fella found his way to "my" lake.

I just love the gular sac!  What an amazing animal.

Cheers to late august in the high country of this Land!

I dry bean for aroma and add brewed espresso to taste at kegging or bottling.

Do you crack the beans or just put them in whole?

Not the Denny, but I crack mine for sure.

It 8) WOULD be cool to meet the famous Rabid Dingo Dog in the flesh,
but alas,
I am not going to be near enough Durango town on that date to meet.

However, it should be a great time to visit Durango;
seems that the hordes of Texans and Tourons have begun to dissipate.

Would be cool to have a TR (trip report) of your findings!

Should you ever find the ability to travel north through Silver town (via train to sample Sean's wit)
and then head north over the Red Mountain,
there is the pub/brewery crawl of Ouray (your-RAY for you outa staters)
on to Colorado Boy
then Horsefly
and then up to the Gunny brewery of Gunnison
before heading over the ridge of Monarch to the east slope.

It is all the great state of Colorado.


The Pub / Re: Got Wood?
« on: August 20, 2011, 09:57:45 PM »
 :D I have a couple new chicks this year
but they don't care about my wood.

True enough, that stack is more for pleasure burning and shop heat
than to really get me through winter.  I do have my eye on a couple more standing dead.

Good grief, the people's forest around here is rife with dead wood these days.

Goats are good, fat and spoiled.  Sheila turned up with milk, a virgin producer, I guess she really wants a kid.

Vert, I do love the smell of a coal fire as well...ecopunk aye?

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Bad news for Utah brewers
« on: August 20, 2011, 09:46:35 PM »
it creates an enviroment that gets us serious about our homebrewing.

Heck yes.

I learned how to make beer in that great state. 
Lots of reasons to develop the skill.

Keep it up home-brew Utah.

Interesting how things change....
when I lived there, in a tiny traditional town,
I had an ancient little old neighbor squint at me when I planted hops on the fence,
she told me it had been 70 years since hops had grown there,
as she remembered her grandma had once tended hops in that ground
to make her "barley beer".

Is that a bit of Senryū? ::)

 :) nah,
while a bit satiric
I am just partial to the return button

 :D, I am sure poor philamb did not realize you are a honored member of the USPS force.
truffle schmuffle, head out and find yourself some new world chantys that reek of apricots. :-*

$1200 round trip to Japan...pretty good price.

Just think of it as a years worth of tithing,
and dwell on all the good works
a tall pirate like yourself could do there.

Now that looks like a researched postable recipe,
thanks for sharing.

I am totally intrigued by the idea of a Sorachi Saison
yet distressed by the fact that you have some Strisselspalt in there  ;)

Thanks very much for the ideas.

Best wishes for your brew.

 :D, yall are funny.  I did not realize the Classifieds were so cool.

Who knows how you would send fresh-n-wet hops in the mail?

And Denny, I keep telling you...don't pick those things, just leave them be.  They look beautiful all winter long!

man, that stack reminds me of when I was a little kid and my old man was still here - he'd split, I'd stack, during the afternoons in August. 

 :), me too.  I think that is the reason I like it so much.

Ya, that is one ugly stack job, and a bit of an embarrassment.

Mostly due to all the variety, and that juniper is not made to stack,
but is sure puts on a glorious aromatherapy burn.

Splitting is good work.  Although I just did this with that crappy axe I had:

Funny...see the only decipherable words on the handle?  Um Yea.

I have been dreaming of one of THESE BEAUTIES,
but man...$200 smackas for an axe?

Whoee Tom, I used to be able to burn madrone and a little manzanita...some cypress later on.  You guys have wood man.

I thought that was a pretty rude question, until I read your post.   :o

I almost posted got wood for wood?  Just for you. ;D

The Pub / Got Wood?
« on: August 18, 2011, 10:20:16 AM »
I love to collect wood for winter burning.
Anyone else? 

Seems like a lot of work I suppose,
but man, stacking against the winter is good pastime!

I guess most of youns live in climates where it never gets cold... ::)

Here is what I have so far:

Some oak (hardwoods are a rarity in these parts), some ancient juniper, spruce (my mainstay) and a little fir.

Nothing like splitting wood to get a thirst on.

So, I'm doing the Saison Saturday. I tweaked the recipe one more time after re-reading the section in Farmhouse Ales that was written by Yvan De Baets.  :-\ 

I wouldn't mind hearing your recipe if you feel like sharing. :)
