? for Denny
« on: September 07, 2016, 01:30:41 PM »
Denny,

Caramelizing fresh figs.  Can you run that process by me one more time.  Can't seem to find my notes from last year.  These are added to secondary correct?

Super heat a wok over your brewing burner...red hot is good.  Cut the figs in large pieces and toss them in.  Let them caramelize a bit, then deglaze with some of the beer from primary.  Put all of that in a secondary and rack the beer on top.

That made me groan out loud. Well done!
