Welcome Keith. :)

Jerusalem artichokes? Can't say I've ever heard of beer being produced from them, but let's see if anyone else has!

Sommeliers recommend that you swirl a glass of wine and inhale its bouquet before throwing it in the face of your enemy.

Thank you so much for the reply well come September 2017 i will be digging them up as i have a load of them growing every year and apart from making chip's and soup out of them i thought what else is there...yes beer..and why not, i'm still 'extract brewing' at the moment but i will be moving to 'grain brewing' around November (yes again 2004) i'll let you know how i get on thanks for the info....

Hi Keith. Crikey, that's an interesting idea. I hope they induce less flatulence in a beer than they do on a plate! :)

Hello, this what i have found out so far Jerusalem Artichokes are not true artichokes. They are related to sunflowers (girasole in Italian), and their name is an anglicisation of girasole artichoke. The root tastes good and contains a high proportion of inulin, a carbohydrate which is sweet in taste but impossible to digest. The bacteria that live inside us love it though, and produce various gases i wonder if that will carry on into the beer...i think i'll call this beer 'Stand by for blast-off'

Umm, Yeh I think I could agree with that statement, they do grow a little,like or should I say tall like sunflowers, but no flowers!!.. And yep they make your back donor blow like a trombone :oops: :shock: :shock: ,

Hello Wonkydonkey, And yep they make your back donor blow like a trombone....that did make me laugh, you are so right, if you entered a competition you would come first as 2nd place would not come close, the bad news is got to wait till late October/Novermber (after frost) before i can get going on the beer side...got to be done...or die laughing
