Posted in thread: Turkey Deep Fry - store oil in keg? on 11-25-2015 at 08:11 PM
Not technically meat smoking but this seemed the best place for my crossover cooking and
kegging question. Every so often I deep fry a few turkeys, waiting for the oil to cool to
filter it back into t...

Iím bottling my olive oil experiment today. I was surprised to see they look different. They
taste different too. The picture was taken at eleven days. OO is the one on the left. Both
batches started ...

In theory, yes the yeast can metabolize it. My question is do they have access to it? Does the
oil disperse well enough into the wort so the yeast have access to it? If it just floats on
top, it won't...

if the OO beer comes out darker he would be unaware of this. Obviously, if it did the samples
need to be placed in opaque cups so that the color difference can't be used to pick the odd

You need to figure out how to do it. I've done enough of these experiments to realize that the
triangle test is the only way to go.What I'm trying to measure: does it ferment all the way,
and does it ...

The true test would be to try OO without aeration on a 1.090 imperial stout. I do add a drop of
OO to my starters (I don't use a stir plate) but I also aerate the wort before pitching, so I'm

It needs to be a blind triangle test. Two of one beer and one of the other. Pick out the one
that's different and if it used OO or not. If you misidentify the different beer, the comments
about OO are...

Taste Test Results: Be sure the batches are split into marked glasses, known only to whom is
giving the test. (Have your SWMBO set it up for you). Its important it is a blind taste test
and rank the b...

Will keep the opinions here - but I've setup a thread for some possibly more formal testing,

if you have...
