Those are "pine mushrooms" technically "Tricholoma magnivelare "
otherwise known as matsutake.  only under old growth lodgepole with some open spaces/brush
mixed in....they are almost subterranial. Smell like spice...vaguely of cinnamon.
I put my finds on here for the world to see...

The flesh is more like a water chestnut/vegetable....firm. These are destined for the sautee skillet with a pinch
of sea salt cooked hot in butter till crispy golden.

Use these paths to organize your club.
Use these paths to fund your competition
What to do for accomodations
etc etc

Beer Recipes / Re: sour cherry rochefort brett in oak
« on: August 16, 2010, 05:13:07 PM »
Update time...
The inside of the airspace in the cask has a nice white pellicle on the cherries and on the wood.
Inside the bung around the edge of the hole is a white ring...
I quickly stuck a wine thief in the thing and withdrew a sample and put it into my tulip glass.
1st thing that hits you is the aroma of the mahleb...almondy flowery nice.
then the beer's reddish hue and clarity come into focus a couple chunks of cherry floating around....
chewy beer lol...
It is developing a nice sour cherry flavor  with finish palate notes of almond. I got NO oak to speak of it can just stay there a while.

Today I got 8# of frozen pitted balaton cherries from Scofield fruit in Colorado (mentioned here with owners permission).
My plan is to soon as I kick the keg of rochefort in the fridge,  harvest a goodly amount of the beer
from this cask, thaw those balatons, add them back to the barrel and then top off with some more rochefort.

Then, carb up the keg of my Kriek and enjoy it thru the dead of winter....grin.... ;D

3724 gave me my 1st experience with acetyldehede.... >:(

Edit: Better mention that I think the 3711 attenuation was due to the Massive quantity of Oxygen I hit it with.
