The Pub / Re: What, No happy Mother's Day thread?
« on: May 12, 2011, 09:37:31 AM »
I went to my mom's, did some electrical work, replaced a mailbox that got hit by a snowplow, and took her out for a absolutely wonderful meal along with the mother of my child.

Mailbox got hit by a snowplow and you're just now getting around to replacing it?  Bad son :)

Her old one was still upright, hanging in there, but it need to be replaced.  Heck, the last snowfall was less than a month ago (Upstate NY). ;)

Very nice.  Enjoy!  This beer is one of my regulars.  Always good.  Tip o' the hat to Mr. Conn.

No brewing this weekend, but I will make a starter for my Saison which will be next weekend, hopefully. :)  Tapped my "Brew for the Cure", a raspberry wit, nice pink tint, crisp and tart.

All Things Food / Re: Making pickles

Still too cool to grow them, but I pickle okra with some dill, garlic and jalapeños. I also do it in the fridge, rather than a full canning process. Okra tends to get mushing if canned with much heat.

I have never had this problem.  I heat process my okra pickles and they always come out crispy.  What is in your brine?

Mine is 1/3 white vinegar, 1/3 cider vinegar, 1/3 water,  kosher salt.  I add dill and cayenne, too.

A BW but which yeast did you use?
WLP007

Then that would make it an English Barleywine.

Except that 88 IBU of American hops might cancel that out!

Except that some English brewers have taken to using American hops! ;)

How about Black Ale?

Going to put the wit that is finished fermenting on the raspberries this weekend.  Hope to get my fermentation chamber built and a starter for an Ofest or Helles.  Need to bottle my doppelbock to make room for an IPA in the serving fridge.

No brewing, Saturday will be a run around day.  Sunday we will be working the garden.  A buddy of mine gave me water bath type chiller that I'm going to use for a fermentation chamber.  Basically a copper coil heat exchanger that will wrap around the fermenter, with insulation around it.  It has a programmable thermostat on it, pretty slick, should work well.  So I may build that this weekend as well, then make a lager starter for next weekends Easter Helles brew.

Are you sure you didn't use Cascade dish soap? ;)  Sorry, just had to.

A cheap, but drinkable burgundy type wine (pinot noir) works great with brisket.  Just through in some crushed garlic, onion, salt and pepper, and additional spices of your choosing and let sit overnight in the fridge.

I brewed a wit on April 9.  It had all the makings of a brewing disaster, (stuck runoff), but everything worked out just fine.  Had reasonable efficiency, and the yeast took off quickly (WLP400).  This will have raspberries from last fall's harvest added to the secondary.  Cheers, Pierre!

I lived there in the late 70s and early 80s.  From what I understand, it is nothing like it used to be.  Probably couldn't afford to live there now.   I'm guessing it went from MNO (mellow and organic) to upscale MNO ;)  It was a very cool place to be.

And get a cheesesteak at Tony Luke's.  Skip Pat and Genos.  Those are for tourists.
