    Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer Rudeboy Jamaican Jerk Ale

    If you are kegging it I'll warn you... your lines will need a good long soak to get rid of the allspice. Hope you enjoy I'm actually getting ready to brew this one again for the first time in a couple years

    It's a shame, Juventus played their hearts out and played some quality football, for about 60 minutes then they completely lost steam and Bayern methodically broke them down. Great game though

    What did I cook this weekend.....

    Feeling under the weather so in the mood for a good chicken soup. Decided to make up a batch of Colombian-style chicken consommé (consome de pollo). Simple yet delicious. Cut up a whole chicken, added a pack of gizzards, browned the meat then sautéed up leeks, onions, and garlic. Added water...

    Historical Beer: Kentucky Common "Kiss Yer Cousin" Rye Kentucky Common Ale

    Brewed this three weeks ago and tapped the keg on Wednesday. Great beer, flavor is incredible considering malt is only around 60% of the mash. Fermented steam-beer style with S-23 and used grits in place of the flaked corn. They were "quick grits" - no cereal mash just cooked and added to the...

    Yep, the cabbage has carrots, sweet onions, garlic and a bit of orange and green bell pepper, sautéed in butter before adding the cabbage and letting it all steam. I can't get enough of it and goes perfect with the chicken and rice

    Lacto Fermented Hot Sauce

    No iodized salt, stick to kosher or sea salt. Reducing surface area helps too

    Lacto Fermented Hot Sauce

    I am surprised you are seeing that much mold if you used a starter - might want to up the salt next time. Regardless it should not be anything to worry about. If you have any doubts you can always boil the final product or add vinegar to be safe

    Lacto Fermented Hot Sauce

    As far as books I recommend Wild Fermentations by Sandor Katz. Not a lot about hot sauce but lacto-fermentation in general. His website had good info too www.wildfermentation.com Also check out thehotpepper.com which was mentioned earlier in this thread. Some good in-depth write ups and threads...

    Lacto Fermented Hot Sauce

    those look great - are they all straight super hots? no carrot/mango/onion/etc to mellow them out?

    Lacto Fermented Hot Sauce

    Technically Tabasco is lacto fermented but not representative Fermented sauces don't have the strong vinegar flavor of commercial sauces and more of the pepper shines through Nice sour twang from the lacto us what does it for me

    Lacto Fermented Hot Sauce

    Should be ok but if you're worried dump it and try again. Try using more salt or a starter
