Iron Brewer Competition

November 18, 2009

Last night our homebrew club got together for our monthly meeting and we judged the 16 Iron Brewer entries for round 1.  My Fruity Pebbles beer somehow won and I’m moving to the 2nd round.  I suppose it paid off for getting the fucking shaft on the last round because I landed coconut extract as the secret ingredient for round 2.  The other dudes got stuck with peppermint extract, anise and blue agave syrup.

Seriously, peppermint extract? I feel for you guys that have to dick with this.  If I pulled anise from the hat I probably would have forfeited since I can’t stand that shit.

The real coincidence here is that a coconut milk stout was next in line for me to brew if I lost the last round.  Last month I stopped by Town Hall Brewery in Minneapolis and had a special release called “Three Hour Tour“.  It’s a coconut milk stout that since my first drink has had me fiending to brew something similar.  I’ve reached out to one of the brewers up there for recipe and process hints on their beer.  Hopefully they’ll call back.

As for the Fruity Pebbles wheat beer, local St. Louisans are more than welcome to get some of this shit since I need to make room for beers that I’ll actually drink.  Serg- I’m sending your shit out once it get’s bottled.

Cereal Beer Challenge

October 26, 2009

So this month my homebrew club decided to kickoff a Iron Chef style bracket competition to see who could feature non-traditional brewing ingredients in a beer.  Of course the ingredients were a secret and we have to produce the beer at the next club meeting in November.  I was all over this shit.

Pork Chop and Apple Pie Sandwiches

March 10, 2009

all

Years ago when Sarah and I were dating I was invited to her Dad’s house for Christmas dinner.  He and his 3rd or 4th wife (I forget) cooked a pork loin on their rotisserie way too long and that fucking thing was like eating sawdust.  Luckily there was some applesauce on the table so I dipped a cut of my pork loin in there before every bite.  I looked around and it seemed to catch on because nobody was saying shit except asking people to “pass the applesauce”.

So here I took the classic pork and apples to another level by making a sandwich using pan-seared, thin cut pork chops seasoned with salt, black pepper and minced rosemary- the buns consisted of assorted apple pastries.

I just know these motherfuckers aren’t going to get any more red.  It’s been over 3 weeks and I have a feeling that a brine change is in order.
