Default Bulk Lme.

I recently discovered a new home brew shop in my area and they have bulk LME at $2.25 a lb....sounds like a great deal to me...iv'e been paying $10 for 3.3 lbs for muntons...also a while back i purchased a old brew shops entire stock of Brewers best kits...for allmost nothing which were a bit out dated but so far iv'e made about 5 of them and haven't had any problems but one the yeast went bad..over the weekend i went down to see if there was anything else left and managed to buy 65 assorted packets of yeast mostly for ales..all for $5....gonna do a wheat beer soon from a recipe i found.after that i'm planning on doing a wheat with fruit of some kind .my question is how do you sterilize fruit,iv'e heard that you put it in your primary then leave it behind when you rack to secondary...could i just add it to the boil or would this cause my beer to be cloudy...thanks.

Neither. Most people pasteurize it and add it to the secondary. Pasteurizing is done by heating to about 160F for fifteen minutes. When I've used real fruit (as opposed to flavor extracts) I've used a tertiary fermenter to let things get as clear as possible.

Now when you say "heating to 160f for 15 min", do you mean in the oven? Like toss it on a baking sheet and bake it at 160 for 15, or are we talking boiling or some other method?

Howdy Ya'll,
I was down at the feed store today and was asking about bulk purchases. I asked old Randy:
{my friend since 1959... ie. the fourth grade}
"Man I am spending a fortune on feed for my poultry empire and must find a cheaper way to 'git-em-fed' you know.
Randy said no.
There is weevil eggs in all feed and they will hatch and ruin it.
Buy a few hundred Lbs to save on gas but,
'feed don't keep!'

Hmmmm, That reminds me
...{oh no, here he goes again,}
I came in from a 5 month stay in the hospital, including rehab, after being murdered the last time, and opened my 5 gallon buckets of LME to check on things and discovered to my horror a layer of white mold an inch high! I used it anyway as there was no alternative.
I got loaded on it but it was pretty bad tasting xxxx.

I used to pay $2.25 a Lb for LME too.
and a couple of years ago was contemplating how to get together with a few others and 'go-in' on a barrel.
Then after my visit with God,
{GOD did speak to me and I ain't kidding}
my 5 weeks surfing the stars so to speak,
and coming home to that dern mold on my LME,
and I looked over and had 6 SIX bottles left after my 'friends' had drank up all my homebrew since I wasn't supposed to make it, and if I ever needed a brew it was then!
I was a changed person,
and went over to DME.
No problem with storage, and it tastes better,
{especially with Fermintis Safale 56 or S-04 yeast.}
I buy it in 55 Lb sacks and that equals 9 batches,
ie. 45 gallons,
and thats 450 12 oz bottles.
or... 18 milk crates of 12 oz' ers
with 25- 12 ouncers in-em.
and as long as I have 8 Lbs for my 8 Lb Hammerbeir, I am fine.
and... by the way boys...
"Out past Mars ain't no speed limit!"
Mojo Nixon


Thank you
J. Knife

The '8 Lb Hammerbeir' recipe is for LME.
I use 6 Lbs of DME but the name had already 'stuck'.
{8 Lb Hammrbeir has only 6 Lbs of DME,
but don't tell nobody.}

Reverend,
Got myself murdered by three brothers,
white trash, who died in the pen two years ago.
And not by the prison but by the inmates.
And I put them there.
White trash who poisoned and gut shot all my hounds,
which I had raised from pups,
There picture is on my website,
two of them, there were seven in all.
jacksknifeshop.tripod.com
I ate with them and slept with them,
for 11 years, I loved them,
$186.00 worth of fur in one night!
Six coon and a Bobcat.
They were in Full Cry twice!
They were all killed horribly,
in their pens and on my property,
just to hurt me,
well it did.
I didn't even know these guys.

The Sheriff said:
"Those Hall boys are going to kill all your hounds,
and they are going to try to kill you."
"We know this is going to happen
all we don't know is when. "

I mean would you believe that ****?
They were watching them though,

I was in Denver selling roofs, 1989.
My hounds were all at home and my old girlfriend lived there and took care of them.
$200,000 worth of roofing sold in 7.5 months at 9% commision and everything was good.
We were going hunting up in the rockys and kill us a bear or lion before we were too old.
I got a call and learned Suemay had died in her pen alone in the middle of hunting season. I thought she had died of a broken heart.
left $10,000 on the books and came home the next day.
Never got paid but I didn't care.
Katy may died 3 weeks later,
and Cotton Joe died 3 months later,
got all skinny and died.
I went on a drunk for 12 years till one night I was coming home on my Yamaha 850 triple and then I woke up and I was in this bed,
and it wasn't mine.
The Lancaster police dept. reported me dead that morning,
no pulse no heartbeat, dead.
And I went to the hospital in a helicopter.
I survived three neck vertabre broken,
and laying in a ditch all night with a crushed shoulder,
coma 5 weeks and recovery ???
The Sheriffs deputys told me about the Hall brothers:
Jack, " Those people down in huntsville, {Texas prison,}
are the scum of the earth,
the worst of the worst
and the lowest of the low.
They have their own society.
But they won't put up with those Hall boys.
Raping children,
burning their neighbors houses,
and poisoning coon dogs,
The Deputy looked down for a long time
and just shuddered,
they'll kill them,
they won't last a year.
I didn't want any reward just to be left alone.
I loved my hounds.
Was it hate?

Back on topic...

Fifteen minutes in an open pot on the stove top with just enough water to cover the fruit, and below boiling temperatures. I've approximated (i.e., guessed) about what was 160F, but using a thermometer is perfectly acceptable.

Jack - awesome. Not quite following how it got in this thread, but wow!
