  1. Fellas, @Ben 10 is on the money here. It was reverse seared. IMO that’s the only way to do this type of meat. Oven for 20 mins at 150 then 45 seconds each side on a nice hot bbq grill. Salt and pepper and the meat alone have all the flavour You need. It was so fresh a good vet coulda brought it back to life. It’s a darker, richer meat compared to your run of the mill steaks, seeing what it looks like post cook you’d know that this definitely wasn’t raw. It’s probably bordering on medium, the meat just holds its colour a lot more than other meats. Give it a go, you wont be un happy (if you cook it right)
  2. The Osborne lager doing its thing. Well the s189 doing it’s thing. Stinking up like rotten eggs. IMG_5775.MOV

  7. Wild harvested Venison and a YH porter both coming to room temperature.
  8. Nice. Any reason for The 3 years? what do you want to keep it in before adding the whiskey and oak?
  9. Lol “almost pungent” sounds hectic. Haha. ill suss this at the brew shop next time I’m there. Have you used it before? And does it go in con injunction with the smoked malt?
  10. The other thing the Misso has to endure me collecting.
  11. Howdy, I’m wanting to do a stout to put away for a while. I want to make it woody, Smokey and bourbony. Not having a bourbon barrel on hand for aging, I did some googling. will the following be required for what I’m after. - some smoked malt in the bill - wood chips -adding some JD after fermentation is complete I’m planing on only doing a 10ltr batch and “dry hopping” the wood chips and adding about 150ml of JD at cold crash. My questions... Is this what I do for my desired result? Thank ya
  12. Charge ya god damn drill the night before. gave the right arm a work out chewing through 5.5kg of grain this morning.
