My daughter has a very good recipe for adobo.  I'll have to see if i can find it and post.

I had no idea you want the fat to separate from the coconut milk. I tried doing that on a curry tonight and it made a big difference.

Mine always separates and I thought I was doing it wrong!  :o  We can get fresh ingredients here and I have made both red and green curries from scratch.  They are very fragrant and yummy.  I got the recipes on line from some Thai woman's cooking site.  We are growing our own lemongrass this year.

I like this cut grilled on a med/high heat after a coating of EVOO/salt/pepper or your favorite marinade (2-4hrs min.). I keep rotating until I get a nice sear on each side of the tenderloin. A little smoke while cooking also adds a nice flavor dimension.

I usually marinate over night in a marinade made of:

Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce - not the fake stuff
Franks Red Hot
Chnese rice cooking wine - the stuff from the asian grocery, not supermarket crap.
sweet aged soy sauce
sesame oil
oyster sauce
hoisin sauce

The key is high heat for short time.  Don't over cook.  If it goes to 160F it's overdone.  Better to undercook and let rest for 15 minutes to finish.

How often is a diacetyl rest necessary? Also, if I were to take the fermenter out of the chest freezer for the diacetyl rest, does it matter much if room temperature is 65 or 75?

I suppose that kind of sounds like a stupid question...

Not a stupid question.  Some yeasts produce very little diacetyl and I have found the lower the fermentation temperature, the less produced.  Be mindful that an appropriate amount of healthy yeast is very important as well.

While it is nice to get a good score on a beer, receiving quality, constructive feedback is the real prize...

Thanks Ron.  This beer is the best domestic example (including commercial examples) of a German pilsner I have ever had.  The recipe and process really do stand up.

Our prayers are with you, brother.  That is horrible!  I lived in the Boulder-Longmont area for five years back in the late 70's - early 80's and though it was in a drought then, we never saw anything like this.

Indeed it does!  What beer did you pair it with?

Ron, Would you be so kind as to post your recipe for that wonderful German pilsner you made earlier this year?  I bragged on it a bit earlier in the thread.

I have one of these that I got from my parents years ago.  It works very well.  They are a bit pricey though.

Lettuce and spinach have been on the table for a few weeks now.  Radishes are about done.  Starting to get beets in (roasted a few this weekend) and got our first tomatoes (Early Girls) and peppers (bells and poblanos) this weekend.  Jalapenos are coming on strong and ready to pick.  Lemon peppers (yellow thai) are coming on , but not turning yet.  Peas are starting to pod.  Corn is about chest high.  Eggplant is flowering, cucumbers seem to be a little slow, but the plants are healthy.  Spaghetti, yellow, and zuchini squash are looking good as well.  The celery is fine too.  The okra and string bean plants are about 6 - 12 inches tall.
