Re: Ardmore surprise

Blimey never considered they would not ripen. We spend a fortune feeding the birds all year. That and a bit of magpie management have significantly improved the variety and quality of the birdsong.

Sorry gaza. Its jargon for butchering a carcase once it is clean. With a pig it's getting it down to joints and cuts ready for the freezer.

Re: Pork pies

That's about the same price and the same service.

I would go and see them in the chiller. And tag/slap them again to make sure I got my own back.

If your new butcher is collecting, you could end up with anything when cut.

Re: WINE: Aeration during primary fermentation

Got the aerator in a couple of time for 1/2h a time during punchdown.
Trying it in just one FV to see if these is a difference.

Re: Ardmore surprise

Hard cider agree. But you will get only get 5%. Bung some sugar in to make it worth the while. Take it to 10 %

Re: You never buy the best airstill first time!

The second has some unnecessary stuff.

The dental one gets my vote, it will of course need a power controller. But don't worry about a power meter. You can turn in down until it the flow JUST starts dripping.

Re: WINE: Aeration during primary fermentation

Crushed my grapes last night, 125 cases. I think the aerator might be difficult to get in... I had forgotten how thick the soup is.

Re: Ardmore surprise

140lb good man. Try freezing some first, press and then ferment with elderflower and sugar. A stunning good white wine. I have a recipe somewhere if you want it.

I have LOTS of bones to boil for flavour, sadly they need a sprinkling of dry gelatin to set to a jelly.

Re: Old recipes.

Lmao.

I read marg was originally developed for fattening turkeys, but they found it caused heart attacks and the mortality rate was too high. So they remarketed it as a spread to replace butter.

Re: T500 in pot still mode

What he said + You are knocking on the door of a perfect setup.. Stripping: T500 with Vino's pot head (link above) is very good. Spirit run: T500 with column. Gin/flavour runs: Water distiller with a power controller (or an alcohol Air Still) for small batches (1 or 2 bottles) runs. https://stillsma...

Re: Gin flavouring

Does this approach sound a bit scientific or should I just follow someone elses recipe the first time. I hate the fact that I'll be producing a whole batch in one flavour and then may need to re do with one change each time....could take forever! I don't think the T500 is a good gin machine...batch...

Austrian beef: Lard, Lots and lots of onions, and beef. Slow cook until the onions become a sauce. Stunning.

Hot water pastry indeed. I can't do shortcrust. Blind bake. Lightly cool, fill. Bake.

Firm crust yes, but not OTT.
