Day 408

October 19, 2012

Maybe I was a bit premature yesterday in thinking that Reading Week had already started. Although I didn’t have any classes today, I had an on-line Health & Safety exam for Practical Brewing, then some answers to post to the History of Rock & Roll on-line discussion group.

With the most immediate school work out of the way, time to head in to Toronto and move the Call of Brew-ty: Black Hops to a firkin for Cask Days. I brought a small container of perhaps 125 mL of pulverized smoked chipotle, courtesy of Chef Michael Olson of Niagara College. The question was, how much chipotle to add to 40 litres of schwarzbier? The assistant brewmaster looked at the container of chipotle, then at me, then at the container.

“Add it all,” he suggested.

“All?” I gulped.


So I added it all.

You have been warned.
