Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Commercial Saisons

Finally got to try FunkWerks.  It is for sure worth a visit if you get the chance.
The Saison was so nice flavorful and clean...if that is a word you can use with saision.
Had the bbl aged quad and it stood out as a great beer also.  I liked the strong belgian golden
and the apricot saison as well.   Had to drive so had to stop tasting.

Wood/Casks / Re: How to proceed with oak cubes?
« on: June 29, 2015, 06:16:56 AM »
I would suggest that you sanitize the oak with your distilled spirit, then ditch the spirit, and
put the cubes into secondary with your beer. Leave in secondary until you achieve the
flavor profile you desire.  For the method of insertion, I would suggest a weighted nylon mesh
bag to hold your cubes submerged in the beer.

I just made Denny's BVIP and put about 2/3 cup of bourbon into 5 gallons of porter.  The bourbon
was kept in a vacuum bag with an 8" Oak med toast spiral for prolly 6-8 months.  The beer is
very good.  One oz of bourbon is not a lot in 5 gallons of beer. Add one ounce at a time and taste
until you get your desired result.

I had good luck with a de-seeded habanero, tossed into a blender with some lime juice and
a dab of salt.....FRAPPE.....add that to your salsa, chili,

Also use the  de-seeded Habanero in the cooking oil....saute' the thing then pull out the chunks
using the oil to cook your pork for green chili....yowsir!

you got bok choy?  I had mine sprouted under a black fabric, pulled the cover off
and here came the time I looked at em, they were gonzo.  :'( :'(

Anyhow, I just chunk up the bok choy stems and toss em in the stir fry.  The
green leafy part can go in your salad or the stir fry also think the meaty stalks
may make for a good fermented veggie as in lacto. YMMV
