All Grain Brewing / Conditioning Unmalted Wheat Berries
« on: May 30, 2013, 07:02:25 PM »
One more question for the conditioning gurus.
I plan to use 30-40% unmalted wheat berries in a bio-hazard lambic.
Yes, I am taking the solera to uncharted territory.
The grain is rock hard dry and should be crushed prior to the mash.
there is no husk on the wheat so .....If I were to mist spray the
4 lbs of wheat berries a day prior to the grist mill, Would this yield
a better end result? I am inclined to think it will be easier to mill when
slightly moistened.

Found this in the current Southern Living Mag. Tried it and it Simply Wowed us...

12 oz stout (i used Sam Smith Imperial)
(4 oz from the pint into my beer glass for later!)

in a mixing bowl whisk together the following
2 Tblsp Tomato Paste
1Tsp Brown Mustard
3 Tblsp Honey
1 Teaspoon crushed whole caraway seeds (love my mortar and pestil)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
set aside

Mix 1 Tblspoon regular flour and 2 Tablespoons of water
Set aside

Cut up a cup of carrots in to 1/2 inch slices
Cut up about 8-10  one inche wedges of a cabbage head
Put these both into a large microwave casserole dish with lid and add 2 Tblsp water
Microwave on high 8 to 10 mins stirring once until slight crispiness remains.
Keep warm

Peel and Cut a small sweet onion in half then slice thin. Reserve

Cut your tender stir-fry beef (.75-1 lb) into 3/4 inch bite sized chunks

In a large skillet add a tablespooon of Olive oil heat to fry temps and add the
beef. Stir and fry to brown the outside and leave the center pinkish. 3-4 mins should work
remove the beef and set aside keeping it warm.

add a splash more olive oil to the skillet and fry the onion slices in until they are tender clear
return the beef to the skillet and stir in the beer mixture. Add the flour water mixture and
stirr over medium heat till all is bubbly hot.

Serve by dishing cabbage carrot mixture on plate and ladle beef/beer sauce over the top.

Damn we have this little restaurant and I cannot get enuff
of the Pho Ga....The man has taken a shine to us and is willing
to help me make some.  I looked on the www and found many
recipies (Euge says good pho a closely guarded secret) but none
seem to match what the proprietor says he makes his from.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale
« on: January 21, 2013, 04:34:27 AM »
First off, I would say a BIG thank you to Euge for funneling this in my direction.

I finally got to trying a snifter of this, After I had a homemade my palate
is not spot on perhaps. (not that it ever was)

Nose is not forthcoming and if anything reminds me of wet dog...yep thats right weak wet dog.
almost verdigris coppery smelling.  I took a small sip and was like....dang NO mouthfeel kinda
watery. That was after the saison of course so maybe expected.
The Beer poured a coppery light amber in the glas and the head was shortlived and a small
ring of bubbles circle the brew perimeter.
Next sip was more better and hoppy, I had become acclimated and it was like yeah...ok I can
do this.  After that I find it to be a nice brew once you get past the smell....light and clean
on the palate not real hoppy as the label/name might have you believe.  If I could find this beer
up here in BFE whyo, I would prolly get some from time to time just to alternate from the
New Belgium scene.  Crisp and forward hoppy, not agressively hoppy. Malt takes a back seat.

Wood/Casks / When do you RETIRE a barrel or solera?
« on: January 20, 2013, 11:40:33 PM »
I mean I have learned my lesson, the thing keeps making great beer

It is cherrylicious goodness.  I however have learned that it owns me
and not the other way around. I need to keep it full ....or waist my efforts
on oxidized yuk....vinegar?

So i need 2 more empty corny kegs and rack the thing empty and ....sell? scrap? burn?
WTF?? is next?  More bugs? Decisions Decisions....what say the masses?

Commercial Beer Reviews / Dirty Hippie / Dark Wheat / Palisade Brewing Co.
« on: September 10, 2012, 06:25:06 PM »
We took a mini vacation to Grand Junction Colorado and a side jaunt
to the orchards on the Palisade Mesa area.  Stopped at this grill for
lunch and this beer was one I just had to try.  Kind of reminded me
of a decent homebrew. If you get the chance, Denny,  Try this.
Thumb up.
