No, I posted another awesome song from Serena Ryder. Why the heck isn't she on the radio in the U.S.? Damn commercial radio in this country wouldn't know talent if it slapped them in the face.

EDIT: Well, no...I did post this earlier . But damn, it is worth listening to twice.

Lots of dark chocolate ice cream recipes call for instant coffee. I'm making some crazy chocolate ice cream for my anniversary beer dinner tomorrow. I bought some very good chocolate and I feel a little silly using instant coffee. Not sure if instant coffee goes bad, but I'm pretty sure it was bought to make ice cream and has been in the cabinet yearsish. So I started thinking, why not use some chocolate malt ground to a powder instead?
Erm, I hope you weren't talking about me. I've been making ice cream a lot lately but I'm not very good at it yet....

Hmm, I really have no idea what that would taste like.

A little coffee is to chocolate what salt is to meat. You don't taste coffee, you just taste the chocolate more.

This sounds like a good idea.

I've used cold pressed coffee in ice cream, and I didn't like the results. The water in the coffee made the ice cream have a crystalized mouth feel instead of being creamy and smooth like ice cream should be. I would highly recommend the instant coffee. It's likely still good after a year. Heck I'd probably even like finely ground coffee beans right in the mix myself.

I tried that in chocolate. I couldn't get the coffee into a fine enough powder, it always came out gritty.

I'm just weird enough to like that. I like chocolate covered espresso beans. Have you ever had those?

Those are righteous! I like the crunch of the coffee bean and the sweet chocolate. Bitter, sweet and crunchy. Hard to beat!

I love the crunch and sweet chocolate too. Just don't eat too many at once!

Don't tell my boss. I left work a little early today. The weather outside lately has been beautiful. Mid-seventies, blue sky, sunny. What a great time for a motorcycle ride. Just an hour or so but so nice.

Not much Dan. Work has been slow for a couple weeks, so I've been bumming around.

The weather is nice here right now too, but it's starting to get hot. Once it hits 100 degrees around here people don't come out of their homes. We're at the mid 90's now. I imagine by next week we'll start hitting 100. I need to get the second evap cooler on my roof running before that happens.

How have you been my friend? Have you brewed lately?
