  • Posted in thread: Who's smoking meat this weekend? on 07-13-2014 at 08:24 PM
    After I smoked a pair of chickens and after we had finished eating, the skies opened up with a
    really impressive downpour. Thanks to a trick I read here, I ran out and turned the middle
    section of the...

    This one is fan-freakin-tastic.

    This is what you're after. Keep the alcohol, kill the yeast.

  • Posted in thread: What did i cook this weekend..... on 07-12-2014 at 01:37 PM
    SWMBO scored a nice collection of spice blends, so we decided to put some Adobo seasoning on
    shrimp and grill 'em up. It was really good! I also grilled some asparagus with salt and nutmeg
    and served ...

    Going to put a couple chickens on the WSM later this afternoon. Got them sitting in a simple
    brine right now. Heck, I might walk over to the butcher shop and grab a couple bratwurst to put
    on the fire...

    Hmm ... I'm having trouble believing that stainless is causing a metallic flavor. How's your
    water? Are you maybe tasting soap residue? (I scrub my pot with a green scrubby pad, but never
    use soap.)

    Last time I did a really big one, I used to calculate the steps. It was something
    like make step 1, let it ferment out, make step 2, etc. It took more than a week to get it up
    to the rig...

  • Posted in thread: Funny smelling old yeast in starter? on 07-11-2014 at 10:27 AM
    A quick postscript on this one: I wound up using 1007 and all went well. I let the 1272 starter
    run because I had seen some other posts about rescuing yeast where some had autolyzed, and I
    thought may...

  • Posted in thread: Brewers not wanting to talk about brewing..... on 07-09-2014 at 03:38 PM
    Ha! We used to have a Dick's Last Resort-style place in Milwaukee. A friend had just gotten a
    small dragon tattoo on his calf and was showing it off. The waiter said, "You call that a
    tattoo?" put his...

    That's a really good idea.

Who is this Rorschach guy? And why did he paint so many pictures of my parents fighting?
