Does anyone reckon I could use baker's yeast to make ginger beer?

 

There's some sachets knocking around along with some ginger and I was curious.

 

I'm on a bit of a home-made food stuff roll at the moment; chilli relish and chilli sauce, pickled mushrooms and now possibly ginger beer.

 

(The internet is a bit too nerdy when it comes to home-brewing talk.)

Finally!  Having a Ph.D. in the flocculation of yeast comes in useful.  

 

THe yeast will work just as well, but will be harder to seperate from the brew, as it will not clump up as efficiently when the sugar has been used up.

Custard is easy to make from scratch.

 

You find these things out when you live in foreign.

Hendersons' tastes too vinegary, although it is an ok veggie substitute.

Got a Stand pie from the local butchers for Christmas and it's flipping lovely. I know they are supposedly for boxing day but couldn't wait.

Could I trouble you for a quick description of tamarillo, pomelo, karela, tinda and cassava, as I haven't tried them yet.

 

I did have scorpion a couple of weeks ago. Crunchy but remarkably tasteless.

I had one new thing each month and they are in order so some are really old and my memory isn't cracking!

 

tamarillo - forgetable, and I'm probably mixing it up with persimmon (sharon fruit), try it or look it up elsewhere to be honest.

pomelo - grapefruit with no sourness, I think. I liked it nad got a little obsessed with citrus vesicles.

karela - (bitter gourd) rank, horrid, strong, ruined the spaghetti I had with it! I can't really describe the taste as it was like nothing else, it hung around heavy in the mouth for a while.

tinda - tinned baby pumpkins, soft and almost like stewed apple with a savoury edge.

cassava - sweet potato turned up a bit, delicious.

Generally good stuff there but would steer clear of the sausage. Poor quality skins that make the sausage collapse when cooking

Dressed crab, in a white crusty roll, a light sprinkle of chipotle Tabasco and a few baby salad leaves. That's sandwich heaven! :)

Just got back from Borough Market (near London Bridge), shopping for meat.

 

Lunch - bison pie. Tastee!

 

Shopping - a couple of woodpigeon, some Iberico pork steaks, charcuterie from Cannon & Cannon (goose sausage, venison sausage and a black pudding/chorizo hybrid), plus some rice morcilla and Iberico ham from the Spanish shop Brindisa.
