My sister, the chocolate queen, is looking for a source for organic, Maris Otter or similar quality LME. She only needs about 3 pounds at this point so she can do some testing. She lives in Portland, OR. She would prefer to shop locally. Any ideas

These people aren't in Portland, but they are the only source of organic brewing supplies that I am aware of: http://www.breworganic.com/

Are they a pretty good HBS? She mentioned seeing them in the phone book, but had no idea. I also suggested she talk with one of the local breweries ,that she has supplied chocolate to for a beer they do, about getting some first runnings from them and making a reduction from that.

That was going to be my suggestion- maybe that would be a good way to get some good LME.

What is her "experiement"? I'd love to hear more about what she's doing with LME in her chocolate.

Fred Eckhardt recommends them, and I'll take Fred's word over anyone else's when it coems to finding quality ingredients.

Ditto above...and they simply are the best shop in the area, in my opinion. I've been to shops in the area that had double lives as video rental stores. This is a dedicated shop with very knowledgeable staff. Not always the best prices, but it's local, and I support local as much as possible.

Sarah has a shop, Alma chocolate, and she make lots of specialty chololated. She is planning to blend the malt in with the chocolate, not exactly a malt ball, but I would guess some of the same flavor. I was suggesting she experiment with flavor and aroma hops. She uses rosemary and other herbs in some of her creams. I think a dark chocolate, malt and Cascade cream would be great. Let the dark chocolate add the bitterness, the malt add the sweetness and the hops provide the spicy/floral/citrus tones.

But for now she is working on the malt side. I think she is going to start with light malt and see haow that goes. Any dark malt might get in the way of the chocolates character.

FH Steinbarts is a craft brewing supplier, that sells to homebrewers (and hosts most of the OBC meetings). If they don't have it, they can order it.
