The Pub / Tough job
« on: December 20, 2011, 10:49:01 AM »
Shipping our Saison de Noel today. It's a little under carbbed so I am having to pull a quarter pint out of each one and force carbonate. I can't drink all this beer by myself. But darnit I'm gonna give it a shot.

This topic has been moved to Equipment and Software.

Mod's note: You'll probably get more hits on this in the equipment section.

Restructured meat product??? Whatsit????  :o

What's the meat made of?
Pig innards and plenty of salt. Typically, "restructured meat product" includes pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, says Whet Moser at Chicago Magazine, citing a 1995 article by Robert Mandigo, a professor at the University of Nebraska. These parts are cooked and blended with salt and water to extract salt-soluble proteins, which act as a "glue" that helps bind the reshaped meat together.

Some of you may know that I live so far out in the sticks that I have not had access to high speed internet for 7 years or so. Welp, I finally got rid of dial up and got satellite internet through Hughes Net. Not as fast as the cable modem at work but soooo much better than dial up. And I also have WiFi through out the entire house now, which means I can surf the forum on my iPod. Woot!

Side note: I actually downloaded the Avenger's Trailer yesterday (20 megs). Still took about 10 minutes or so but I could never do that on DU.

Ingredients / Weirdest thing: Sulfur Removal tip
« on: October 10, 2011, 12:51:59 PM »
I have a beer that I racked too early and it was just full of sulfur. Smelled absolutely fetid. I looked up some solutions and found a tip on a wine making forum that suggested pouring a small glass and stirring the wine with copper. And that if it works to try racking the wine through copper tubing.

Tried the stirring thing and side by side the difference is simply friggin' amazing! The beer stirred with copper tastes and smells exactly as it should. The other smells a little like ass.

I'm blown away, had never heard of this technique. The beer stirred with copper is delicious and completely drinkable, the other I couldn't finish an entire glass. Has anyone else heard of this?

Has anyone ever frozen beer before? I have but it has been years and years ago. Long story short; I forgot to put the ranco probe in my chest keggerator and froze all the beer in there solid. I've only tried two but one is an alt and the other is a tripel. Both are drinkable but they also both seem to have "stronger" flavors than before, especially the alt. Also, the alt now has a haze that wasn't there before. The tripel hadn't completely cleared up prior to freezing but it seems to also have a bit more haze.

Anyone have any experience or science to back this up?

The Pub / Steve Jobs Dead at 56

Wow! What an impact this is going to have on the tech world. Love or Hate Apple they have been profoundly influential on modern technology and Steve Jobs was the core of Apple - pun intended. Sucks for anyone to pass at such a young age.
