The Pub / Re: Garden harvest pics....
« on: September 19, 2010, 03:18:41 PM »
No pics, but our garden is starting to slow down.  We are getting a crapload of green beans, okra, and scotch bonnet peppers still.  Waiting for the late harvest of brussel sprouts.  The broccoli is not doing all that great.  We have some poblanos, jalapenos, and sweet reds (Marconi), but it's starting to wind down.  Tomatoes are starting to suffer from black spot and our dogs keep eating them as well :o.

Thanks for the updates, Frank.  Jeff is lucky to have you in his corner.  My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.  The recovery process may be long and onerous, but we all hope he's back soon with his wit and ornery repartee.

OK.  I transferred the Flanders red into a glass carboy and pitched the brett and lactobacillus.  There was a bit of the primary yeast still in suspension.  Will this be a problem as time goes by (autolysis?)?

Thanks,

Jim

We have been doing pork tenderloins with different woods, but always the same rub and mop.

Pear, nectarine, and persimmon have been woods that have been excellent.

Finally, a use for my old golf clubs. ;)

After the O-fest tasting Ron and I had last year, I think I will stick to Spaten or Hacker-Pschorr.  The American versions, while drinkable, and some tasty beers in their own right, are missing a flavor component that the German verisons all seem to have.

You're right Denny.  It won't make a difference, all the fluid passes through the hole in the wall.  Gravity brings it to the bottom of the container.  A longer braid may help as far as clogging goes, though, as the grain has a larger surface area to compress.  With a short braid or for the sake of arguement just a screen in a fitting in the hole, if the grain is compressed against it, it has a better chance of becoming clogged.

All good points, Paul.  We actually use more land for feed for animals than we do for fruits and vegetables and grain for human consumption.

...and besides Jim...who can pass up a lip smackin' smoked brisket.  ;)

You know I won't, Ron. (Now where is that lip-smackin' emoticon?) ;D

Nothing planned, but if I get a wild hair, maybe a fest beer or some other lager.

I have found the best way to avoid getting into a bar fight, is to avoid bars. ;)

Don't name your food...

If I don't name my food, how will I know what I'm eating? ;)

The generally recommended amount is "a handful".

Or about 4 oz. ;)  depending on the size of your hand.
