oh man what a bunch of nerds. when is the next one?
done. http://billybrew.com/beer-ice-cream i also split and scraped a vanilla bean into it after it cooled to room temp and pulled the pod out before spinning it in the ice cream machine. i need to tweak the recipe to give it a more ice cream texture though; it melts way too quickly because the extra alcohol in it lowers the freezing point, and the original recipe was probably designed around a beer that wasn't more than like 6% abv. would go extremely well in a milkshake as-is though
sorry i have been reading this thread and thought I would input for making high abv beer ice cream. If you use some gelatin in the recipe, the alcohol will stabilize and the freezing point will be much closer to non-beer ice cream.
good idea; treat it a bit like a panna cotta! will have to remember that for next time.
Awesome. Thanks my friend!!
speaking of BCBS recipes, i did this last year. http://freshandfoodie.com/2012/02/20/bourbon-county-stout-pancakes-with-cardamom-spiced-maple-syrup/
Heat the beer to boil off the alcohol first
That kinda defeats the purpose, no?
last week my wife stumbled upon a recipe for beer waffles and my idea was to try making them with breakfast stout. this also sounds incredible.
word to the wise - Monster Recover is not a prescription for recovering from a beer tasting, but it is a prescription for crapping your pants and doing lamaze style breathing and fighting back throwing up.
Really fun time. As usual met and talked with tons of great people. Like everyone else has already said I hope playa just got home safe.
Also peaquods afterwards was a fantastic life decision.
they came out really good actually, had em with the family on a sunday morning when everyone slept over after a night of partying. we had some bcbs leftover so it was a nice awakening drinking some bcbs and eating some bcbs pancakes. i'd probably go a little heavier on the bcbs portion though. just a wee bit.
was dekalb really that bad?
Depends. Do you just want BCBS flavor, or do you need the alcohol too? Generally, I'm a bigger fan of ice cream texture with the BCBS flavor.
I wonder if Pork Shoppe and several slices of Pizza Hut pizza are why I am feeling pretty good today. I successfully broke the ounces barrier and crossed into pounds territory with the amount of brisket and pork I consumed
i sure could have used some pequods last night...i think i still would have thrown up though.
It was a great time last night. Thanks to everyone.
Quick note: Whoever accidentally took the unopened FW XVI home with them at the end of the night, I would appreciate it if it was donated back to the store. Thanks!
Big mistake not eating dinner last night oh well...nice to hang out with fellow BA's again. Thanks again to quinnsi for hosting a great night.
Thanks Chris. Superb night. Saison de fermier is also in contention for best beer of the night, but that's along with another 10 contenders. Someone bring Chris his beer back.
Any chance to get on the list for the next one of these?
I second that
Always great to meet some BAs in person. Very Sour Blackberry and Atrial Rubicite stole the show for me. I'm always floored by the generosity at these events.
Jeff- thanks for convincing me to go Peaquods after, though I burned the shit out of my mouth.
Is playaplaya alive?
Reading the last two pages paints a rowdy, sweaty, neck beard-y, scene in my mind.
maybe its chicagos bike culture or overall vain-ness, but surprisingly the majority of the attendees were of an average build (not average american, lets say average european) with probably a 22 BMI. Also lots of clean shaved faces, but the sweat, gas, & mild rowdiness is pretty spot on.
I wasn't mine, and it's been returned! Thanks guys!
Glad someone brought Atrial. Was going to bring a bunch of Jester King stuff including the new fruit sours but had to cancel last minute. Glad to hear everyone had a good time and I certainly hope to make the next one!
Great time. Thanks again for hosting, Chris.
Think I'm finally fully recovered.
If there's another event, I would be very interested in going. Can't believe I just found out about this now.
Great to meet so many of you yesterday. It was an outstanding event and Chris was a great host. I had a black grocery bag that had a Cabra Perdida from Greenbush, and a Strawberry Rhubarb disappear on me last night. It was on the floor near the liquor. If you accidentally left with the bag, please PM me.
Hopefully you'll get your bag back, but if you don't, shoot me a message and I'll crack open a Strawberry Rhubarb with you.
If I had either I'd split em with you as well. But I don't.
Someone please return this man's beer. You'll be much less of an a-hole if you do.
I really appreciate anybody who offered me a couch to sleep on.. I also appreciate any concern expressed from you guys. To be clear...I do not remember anybody offering me anyway to not drive home or telling me I've had too much to drink. I have no doubt people offered help to me, I just blacked out and have no recollection of it.
I do not remember spilling any beer. The last thing I remember is looking at my phone at 10:48.
I did not get home safely. Albeit, no DUI, did not hurt anybody(besides myself)..
If anybody has anyone recollection of what I did, specifically the last hour, I would be soooo appreciative. Please BM me though and keep this out of the public forum, for the sake of everyone, I know this is not what this thread is for.
I have not the faintest memory of leaving.
To be clear though I do not remember ever getting/being too drunk. The last memory I have, at 10:50, I was still in pretty good shape.
Also, my 750 of Drie Fontei oude gueze??? lol It was for the beer share, so I obviously brought it with the intention of not bringing any home... But, the last time I remember the bottle had not been opened.
If you grabbed it and brought it home. Good for you for not being shy.
I'm just curious.
I don't want it back, just would like to cure my curiosity as to what happened to it.
I seem to remember you grabbing the 750 of 3F Oude Gueze and a 12oz of Aracdia Shipwreck Porter and putting them into your bag. Did you leave it somewhere? It was like a black drawstring bag or something.
Thanks for the reply.
Yes, I did have a black drawstring bag and did bring the shipwreck as well. If I put them in the bag, then they're most likely still in my car; which I will not have access to until at least the 18th....But, that answers at least one question.
I didn't attend but I do hope whatever happened to you after you left the event, serious or not, you can bounce back from quickly and in decent shape.
I'm glad you had a good time, but take it as a lesson, bud. It's great to enjoy all those brews, but you gotta do it without getting suuuuper drunk. I also did that at my first bottle share. Not tring I sound like a scolding dad. But I've learned this rule, and it's a good one to love by: it's okay to be a drunk guy at a party. It's not okay to be THE dunk guy at a party.
Hope you've recovered from the other day.
Thank you Chris for hosting a great event and putting up with a bunch of us beer nerds all night. Many great beers and generous people as always! Hopefully you will permit us to repeat this event again down the road. Had a fantastic time. My favorites were VSB, BAA, Atrial, Saison du fermier and the de grade lee noir. Major thanks to whomever brought the BA kona, a beer I've long wanted to try but given up hope on ever ticking
