denny: any recollection as to what quantity of mushrooms you had to use to get a good flavor?

boulderbrewer: thanks for the link... I probably should have thought to search around on NB for stuff like that.  Looks like it could be tasty, but I think I'm leaning toward mushrooms for now.

Denny's Wee Shroomy is delicious!

I used about 2.5 lb. chopped and added to secondary.  I tried soaking them in vodka on one batch and adding that, but didn't care for the added alcohol heat and felt it diminished the aroma.  The next year I just brushed the duff off and put them right into secondary.  Fortunately, both were good years for chanterelles and I was able to gather them from my woods.  Otherwise it would have cost me a fortune!  And FWIW, the we heavy recipe was Skotrat's Traquair House clone recipe which AFAIAC is the best wee heavy recipe I've ever run across.
