Interesting choices. I wonder if it would be worth it to set up a
set of 4 different styles and play with the palate.

Thanks for the replies.

All Things Food / Smoked Salmon Pairing?
« on: November 30, 2011, 07:29:22 AM »
I just recently gained a piece of home-smoked salmon filet. It looks fantastic. I love smoked salmon that
I have bought. I am so anxious to try it. But I ask this. Does anyone have a recommendation as to which
beer to pair with it? The one beer that comes to mind for me is Ft. Collins Brewing Z-lager. A smoked lager.

Anyone else have a suggestion? I'm in Denver so any locally available beer would be preferred but any suggestion
will be taken seriously.

Regarding the OP, I took it as a situation where an elderly person on a limited income was fitting a little "beer joy" into his life by coupon-clipping for cheap beer, and the OP saw a chance to be charitable and upgrade the old man's beer joy with homebrew--quite an upgrade, by the way. I too have seen addiction at close range, but without a lot more detail I took it at face value. If you're struggling on a limited income (and I've been there), a libation can be a nice way to take the edge of of life harsher's realities.

nicely put

I like the spirit, the intent and the idea. Good job making sure it is not completely a  ME ME ME ME ME ME society.
Sharing and caring for others is good.
Worrying about what the consequences of a friendly gesture and how it will affect ME is bad...

Reading from this, reminded me, one of my coworkers organized a Charity Golf Tourney.
I have already volunteered to donate two brewing sessions. I'm sure I still have to iron out
details to steer clear of how it will affect me but I want to contribute with my hobby too.

Now I'm really curious about the famous Taco John's. Man...the closest TJ's is 434mi. away in Athens, Ohio.

Road Trip?  :-\ ;) ;D

 I lived three hours from a TAco Johns, and I'm just now finding out about it?!?!?!

Where do you live now? You know Taco Johns is a Wyoming product. Hell there has to be two or three withing a stones throw, no?

My wife used to LOVE Taco Johns, then she married a Mexican...Now she cringes like I do.

Thanks rabid_dingo coming from you, I consider that sound secondhand info.
Still, just to fix an eye sore and not contain the source seems weird.  Rebuild
and repair in the same location seems ludicrous. But then we just had
earthquakes in Oklahoma.... :-\

What I meant was fixing the containment that has become the eye sore not fixing a broken plant. Does that
make sense? They want to clean, fix and contain. Not just create a concrete encasement eyesore...

That is what I was getting at.  Keep pouring water on the hot stuff....that plume has
not been contained and something is downwind from that location....this is not pretty.

Yeah I even heard they were "repairing" the facility. What a load of crock. They need to take the whole place up into ships and drop it in the Marianas trench. Of course then Godzilla might actually be a reality...

That's my lame attempt at humor- anyway how do you fix a problem like that? Chernobyl is still sitting there leaking.

Oddly enough, my BIL, is tied directly with the clean-up design of the Daiichi(sp) plant. I find it interesting that I happen to catch up on the AHA forum the night that I ask him about the progress. He does some design work for the process and what needs to be done. There is a lot of truth to slow, bureaucratic progress. But there is a significant difference to the "fuel rods" used in Chernobyl vs. Dai ichi. Primarily, Chernobyl used a peletized form of fuel, when it blew it spewed pellets all over the USSR and what not. Japan on the other hand used more clay-rod technology. Less spewed up and about.

*** This is not an argument against a leak***

Just that there was less containment in the USSR vs. Japan...

But Chernobyl aside, I asked and the most damaged reactors do have a superstructure like Chernobyl. But they are still looking at cleaning up more than that and "cleaning up" a potential "eye-sore"

Just sayin...

Some of KitchenAid products are still made in Ohio, but a lot of the gears are now plastic. A lot of their other products are made in China.

Do you work for Hamilton Beach, or what?

You made me spit beer on my monitor. Damn that was funny!

I love mine, I inherited a bunch of attachments. I make my chorizo with it.
