New stout experiment – followup

Posted by gryphn on January 30, 2009 in Food & Drink |

As you may have read, Bryan and I broke the stout recipe into 5 separate 1 gallon carboys to test that addition of various things in the secondary fermentation. We bottled the Dry Hopped one and the Control on Tuesday and we bottled the remaining 3 last night with the help of our Igor. (Thanks […]


Sea Urchin Battleship sushi

Posted by gryphn on January 29, 2009 in Food & Drink |

So I decided to try sea urchin in sushi form the other day. I would not suggest trying it to any one else unless they had a strong stomach. Not that it tasted bad, it was the texture that so COMPLETELY grossed me out. I can say that I’ve had it and that’s as far […]


Changing ones overall diet

Posted by gryphn on January 22, 2009 in Life |

So I decided to change over to a slightly different diet, well ok I guess it was a rather drastic change.  I went from eating meat to pretty much not eating meat.  I won’t say I’m a vegetarian, because that wouldn’t be true either. I like sushi too much to really want to give it […]


New stout experiment

Posted by gryphn on January 21, 2009 in Food & Drink |

We’ve brewed a new Stout, but this one (Dark Horse 4) is going to have a little twist going into the secondary… or should I say secondaries.  We are going to split the batch into 5 separate 1 gallon batches and see what happens when we do a few different things to it.  We will […]


Cordials and Liqueurs

Posted by gryphn on January 20, 2009 in Food & Drink |

I’ve made the foray into the realms of happy little cordials.  It seems a rather straight forward process, so I’m hopeful that it will work out a bit better than my first attempts at sodas.  I’ve started out with some rather simple ones: Banana Lime Hazelnut The Hazelnut one was kind of a cop out.  […]

Well winter is here… again

Posted by gryphn on January 8, 2009 in Life |

and there is no break in the weather pattern for the forseeable future.  I wouldn’t mind the snow so much if it wasn’t so blessed cold.  I swear I need a snow suit or something… I definitely am going to have to get some snow boots!  Especially if we keep getting all this snow and […]

My car hurts my heart…

Posted by gryphn on January 7, 2009 in Life |

I love my car, but I’m beginning to think that it’s time to look at something new.  Otherwise it may just nickle and dime me to death… well more like 400$ here and 400$ there… First the oil pan and now the sway bar.  I wish I still had someplace to work on it, then […]
