What cuts of meat do you guys recommend for grinding your own hamburger?

Anybody try one of these?  I don't know if I really have a use for one, just curious.

Anyone know the name of it?

General Homebrew Discussion / Native American alcoholic beverages
« on: February 10, 2012, 07:45:06 PM »
Native American society did not evolve with alcohol and so they never developed a tolerance like those of European decent. This may be why native americans seem to have more alcohol related problems.

I know that everyone says this, but it's not entirely true.  Some populations may not have had alcohol, but some definitely did.  Here is one example.

Granted it was very low alcohol and their alcohol production technology was not as advanced as Europeans, but it wasn't entirely absent.

I really want to try making a beer this way, does anyone know where I could get some corn that would be suitable for soaking and sleeping on top of like this?  Organic corn seed? :)

I've always kind of viewed this song as a NW anthem, but this version is especially great to me . . . so many different parts for one person to keep straight, I love this kind of thing.

The Pub / English pronunciation

Great poem - here's how it starts

Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.

Beer Travel / Oahu or Maui?
« on: January 02, 2012, 07:41:27 AM »
We're thinking about a trip to Hawaii in a few months, and trying to pick an island.  I'd love to go back to the Big Island if only to bother Carl, but that's not on the itinerary this time.

So - which island (Oahu or Maui) is better for beer?  And are there any beer events around 3/30-4/7 that would be fun?  Festival, judging, something else?

Ingredients / help me choose hops
« on: December 22, 2011, 08:14:21 AM »
I need to order some hops for my English ales and Irish stout, and I'm trying to decide between:

Sonnet™ Golding c.v. Leaf 2011 NEW CROP Size: 1 Lb.  6.6%       $ 18.60

East Kent Golding Leaf Hops NEW 2011 CROP Size: 1 Lb. 4.6%     $ 14.65

First Gold UK Leaf Hops NEW 2011 CROP SIZE: 1 LB 5.1%            $ 12.15

Fuggle UK Leaf Hops NEW 2011 CROP Size: 1 Lb. 4.3%                 $ 14.35

Clearly the First Gold gives the most bang for the buck for bittering, which is all I use it for in my stout, so I might get a pound of that.  I liked the Sonnet golding, but I'm not liking the price this year.  I think I'd pick the EKG over the Fuggles, but I'm open to being convinced.  I'll probably get a pound each of two varieties, so what do you guys think?

Ingredients / NB has Falconer's Flight 7c's and Zythos
« on: December 13, 2011, 05:20:12 PM »
I got an email from NB today, they have some new products.  I'm assuming the FF are 2011 crop since they list them as a new product, but the others must be the new blends that Denny had heard about.
Typical Alpha: 10.5%. A blend of PNW hops with tropical, citrus, floral, lemon, and grapefruit tones.
Typical Alpha: 9-11%. A proprietary hop blend from HopUnion that includes 7 of the "c" hops along with a few experimental varieties. The citrus/grapefruit character associated with Cascade and Centennial is there, alongside fruity, spicy, and earthy notes that make for a complex impression.
Typical Alpha: 10-12%. A proprietary blend of hops from HopUnion, designed for complex flavor in IPAs and similar hoppy American styles. Zythos is strongly aromatic, with tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, and pine notes. Try it in place of Amarillo, Sorachi Ace, or Simcoe.
