Ingredients / Re: Cacao Nibs
« on: September 24, 2010, 09:50:01 PM »
My method is to winnow off the hulls of the beans and then make a slurry of
everclear and cacao in a blender...put this slurry in a pint jar and keep it in
a cool dark place for a couple weeks...adding everclear as needed to maintain
a liquid condition. Then add the entire slurry to secondary.....this serves to
assist in breaking down the cacao bean and it's oil/butter...also I would add a
little splash of some vanilla extract which helps get the aromatics rolling....

it works well...enjoy.  ;)

Beer or liquor, pick one never mix the two. Drink lots of water. If you wish to drink liquor to the point of intoxication drink something clear. Ten you may be in the clear.

Euge I had Great results this year from a product I got from the county weed n pest.
It really targets canada thistle and wipes it out is called Redeem.  There are some
constraints you will want to study up deadly to conifer trees....soil residules etc...

Your thistle needs to be up 3-4 pairs of leaves for exposure to be effective.  

Generally the best time of the year here, is in the fall because that is when the plant
tries to pull nutrients into the root for the winter.  Pulls the poison in with that mechanism.

I apply it to each thistle (spot spray)using a plastic quart hand held spray pump bottle.  Where it contacts
surrounding foilage ....yes affects it too.  

Anyone klnow how to effectively kill field bind weed?????

Take a brand new, fresh out of the package toilet brush, wash it, then use it to stir a pot of chili.  Then see how many people who saw you do that want to eat the chili.

I adopted a new one and use it for reaching into the bottom of my cornie kegs to swish em out....

proposed name for mousy carboy beer....

Are no longer being manufactured in the good ole US.

I like these compared to ziplocks for ease of use and this just figures...if I like it, it will go bye bye....

I finally know why I cannot find em any more... I have to buy a case lot and get back to hoarding....I don't have many lunches left to make in my career,
but, I have made THOUSANDS of lunches in my life using this product and Never ever got gastro...anything that can be
attributed to the closure method of these baggies,

Dang it Cap what you going to put your stuff in ???

Make some Pig Candy to go with it Weaze...then you will roll your eyes....

So where do we get Best Malz pilsner from now???? Or can someone recommend me a good Pils malt that NB or Midwest or someone else sells.   One Pils malt I do NOT like is Crisp Euro Pils. It always comes out way too sweet somehow, even when it's fermented down to 1.010

+1... ???  Same question, different brewer.....

Using a blue cooler guarantees you 113% efficiency.... ;D  That means that if you brew enough, you'll start gaining grain and eventually you'll never have to buy any more! 

Denny, you must have several bags around by now, since in the photos I saw your tun was blue from inception....

So that means I can PM you and you could send me a bag of Pils if I cover shipping?
