Ingredients / Weyrman floor malted Pilsner
« on: May 03, 2016, 05:19:17 AM »
Going to brew a Helles with this today. I know, I really should be brewing a Pilsner but I have my heart set on a Helles. Will repost on my findings as day progresses. Recipe is 95% floor malted pils and 5% floor malted Munich.

The Pub / Home sound system
« on: April 24, 2016, 09:58:44 AM »
When I was 16 my dad helped me get financing for a Techniques sound system. I had a part time job and it was a great way to build credit and have a sound system that was really awesome! I loved that stereo. Over the years I've had to replace the CD player, receiver and turn table but the digital EQ and speakers are still with me, echoing back 30 blessed years of memories (and hearing loss).

What I have now is pretty nice, the sound is good but not world class. Some vinyl/CDs sound better than others and I realize that it's good but not great.

I really want to build a GREAT sound system. I have been looking at receivers and want to build something around a really great receiver but I am having trouble finding any reliable information. My budget us probably between 1500 and 3000 dollars spent here and there.

One of my very close fiends is actually the tour manager for Hank Williams Jr so at some point in time I will be asking him to assist but I was wondering if anyone here had any direction - I know denny probably knows all about this stuff. But for crying out loud I can't find much info on line. Amazon is no help. The reviews on everything are so mixed it is ridiculous. I need good advice from folks who actually know what they are talking about.

Yeast and Fermentation / Munich Dry Wheat Beer Yeast
« on: March 02, 2016, 09:19:41 AM »
I have been charged to brew a banana fosters beer for a beer dinner. How much isoamyl acetate does the dry Munich Wheat throw? More banana the better in this case!

(PS: I don't need liquid strain suggestion so much, I need to do this quickly and I have access to this yeast today. Thanks.)

All Things Food / Smokers: electric vs gas
« on: January 27, 2016, 06:10:03 AM »
I've been wanting a BGE or Komodo for several years now but every time I go to pick one up the price gets in my way. I have always used a bullet type smoker but often times I end up having to finish a pork butt off in the oven in doors and I really just want an easier way to manage my smoke days.

I'm not looking at the Traeger tyope either, but the gas and electric smokers look pretty nice with shoots or drawers you can pull out to add chunks or chips.

A buddy of mine has a gas fired one and he loves it but I was leaning electric so that I could not have to fool around with gas tanks.

Anyone have any experience with these? Preferences? Thanks!

All Things Food / Cooking on a salt rock
« on: December 25, 2015, 03:36:26 PM »
I got a really cool gift from my wife, a Himalayan salt block for cooking. Looks like something really fun, I'm thinking about trying an egg on it first and then a steak on Sunday. Anyone of you doing this? Tips and advice would be cool.

Beer Recipes / Hard Root Beer - Anyone have a recipe?
« on: December 14, 2015, 05:04:42 AM »
I have been asked to brew a hard rootbeer and I don't really know where to start. I'm thinking about keeping it fairly low alcohol, maybe around 3.2%. Anyone have a good idea on where to start?

Equipment and Software / PID Controller
« on: December 10, 2015, 01:55:21 PM »
I got this thing all out of whack. Any oneknow how to get it back? The green is set temp but red is supposed to be display temp. Not sure how to get it to read right and still trying to figure out the 60+ page manual.

The Pub / Creed
« on: November 29, 2015, 08:29:25 AM »
I'm a huge Rocky fan, but especially the first movie which is one of the best movies ever made IMO. Lots of people forget that it won 3 Academy awards including Best Picture.

Creed is every bit as good as the first Rocky. Great story, great dialogue and Sly probably deserves an Oscar for his performance.

If you liked any of the Rocky movies at all trust me, go see it! Best movie I have seen in years.

Ingredients / Belgian Chocolate
« on: September 01, 2015, 02:47:04 AM »
I am working up a recipe and I want to be able to say it has "Belgian Chocolate" in the beer. I found this:

I plan on finishing the beer off on cacao nibs but wanted to add some real "Belgian chocolate" to the whirlpool.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I think a powder would be easiest to use.

Ingredients / Wet dry hop?

Anyone use fresh "wet" hops as a dry hop?

All Things Food / BLTs and Okra!
« on: August 02, 2015, 08:30:23 AM »
Here's something I tried recently with my garden fresh okra and tomatoes. when I make a BLT (weekly this time of year) I cut up some fresh okra and after I pull the bacon off the skillet I throw the okra, unbreaded, in the hot bacon grease and fry it up as a side dish. Light salt and pepper. Simple and Delicious.
