Re: Prickly pear

Singe the thorns with a propane torch to ease handling. I've macerated them and also made a apple juice and prickly pear cider also. Not a mead so far. Also,Jack Keller lists a prickly pear wine on his site. The green pads,not the fruit,are good to eat sliced thin or in small cubes and fried into ta...

Re: Single Malt Barley on Merlot Chips

This is similar to this thing I've been doing. Except I've been using toasted oak fingers, cherry/apple Melomel for the wine, and Booners protocol corn whiskey(heirloom corns) and vin13 yeast for the spirit. The goal for me is to make as complex of a spirit as possible from a simple corn whiskey. At...

Re: How to use powdered enzymes?

Based on my limited experience with powdered enzymes ... I've not found a true high-temp alpha so you'll need to modify your Booner's protocol (which I also follow). So, if you're accustomed to taking your strike water to 200F+, and adding the SEB HTL almost immediately after dumping it on the grai...

How to use powdered enzymes?

A lot of info on liquid but... I'm clueless as to powdered enzymes. Anyone want to clue me in? Is it still alpha and gluco at their respective temps or what? Someone give me the rundown please. If possible, using the Booners protocol as the base but substitute powdered for liquid. Thanks, Jb~n~tx

IF the person you bought the keg from is a garbage human being and stole it ... just how does that injustice fall onto the purchaser?
