On a similar note, tomorrow is Bell's Eccentric day and this year's batch is supposed to have the following ingredients: vegetables, popcorn, fruit, spices, raisins, honey, & malted milk balls. It's always an interesting concoction.

Last year it was even more interesting on it's way up. Hopefully that won't happen to me again tomorrow night.

Thought that looked like chanterelles. Guess those 2 fronts that came through had a little positive effect. You can send some of those fronts down our way anytime now.

That could describe most of what I drank in high school! I'm glad those days are just a dim memory now.

You Know Denny,

ever since you mentioned this craziness over on the greenboard (I think) I have been thinking about trying it.

Do you think that dry hopping in the serving keg would work for thiese fungi?

I only have kegged wee heavy at the moment

Scott, I don't see why it wouldn't work. The blend of flavors is incredible if you can get some nice fresh mushrooms. Fortunately I was able to pick those myself, cause they're $25/lb. right now! Don't make the mistake I did last year...I soaked 'em in vodka and then added that. VERY harsh, not a lot of flavor. This year I just brushed off the dirt, chopped 'em up, and tossed 'em in the secondary.

What is the green stuff I see in there, Denny? Is that on the shrooms?

Mmmmm... mushrooms. I made a nice shepherd's pie last night with just some plain ol' button mushrooms (it was all the store had) and it was delicious. I love 'em.

The green stuff is just artifacts due to my lousy photo touchup skills....

Actually, I've never tried cooking with them after they come out. They just don't seem to appetizing at that point. Maybe I'll reconsider...

Being a hardware guy, I've never liked Macs. I've always done all my pro audio work on PCs, unlike a lot of the industry. My wife won an Emmy doing animation on PCs, contrary to the industry standards.

I just sampled a fermenter of said beer without the shrooms. Great stuff!

I can't wait to try this years attempt. I thought that last years Shroom Wee Heavy was pretty good. I did not detect a harshness in it. I thought that the mushroom flavor was quite subtle.

I wish I knew more about mushrooms as there are a lot of them in our back 40.

I agree Tom...

That old Hippie waited to tell people about it until the snows fell...

Next year though... I will do some picking
