  • Next up, beer protein smoothies. Just as Hammurabi intended.
  • Just skip the middle man and mix some beast ice and whole milk, like I do every morning.
  • Stop calling plant-based liquids 'milk'. It confuses James Cromwell.

    Actually just realized that would be a good name for an imperial milk stout if there isn't one already.
  • RaceDTruck: $20/gallon?  Pass.


    ugh, yeahno. sometimes I'll buy a six liter case of Natrel UHT whole milk when spamazon has it for $9, which even that is already pushing it.

    really too bad since I looove barley "tea" and even more how surprised I am this product is unsweetened. wonder what the actual in-store price will be (not that I imagine it'd ever come to a market near me)
  • > Golden Wing is made with just five ingredients: water, barley, sunflower oil, pink Himalayan salt, and shiatake mushroom extract. According to Molson Coors, Golden Wing Barley Milk contains 60% less sugar, 50% more calcium, and twice as much Vitamin D versus 2% milk.

    Umm the linked website says 7 ingredients

    https://goldenwingofficial.com/
    Barley Milk (Water, Barley, Barley Malt)
    Sunflower Extract
    Calcium Carbonate
    Pink Himalayan Salt
    shiatake Mushroom Extract

    TFA left out calcium carbonate.
    I want to know if that was chemically created, sourced from artisanal limestone mines, or derived from organic oyster shells or pig bones.

    So its slightly flavored barley water.

    though I can't find any mention of adding fat to it as the company does with sunflower oil (I mean "sunflower extract").

    hmm, they likely do some shenanigans with the oil to make it the beverage creamy?

    also, ugh about the calcium carbonate - I always forget to think about stuff like that. and I think the law does not require disclosure on labels (unless somehow allergy related)

  • Nope.

    Ingredients: Barley Milk (Water, Barley, Barley Malt), Sunflower Extracts (Organic Sunflower Oil, Sunflower Lecithin), Calcium Carbonate, Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, shiatake Mushroom Extract

    The only reason it has vitamin D, calcium, iron, and potassium is because it has shiat other than "barley milk" in it. It's just diluted wort, before hopping & adjuncts, to which enough oil & fiber have been added to improve mouthfeel and give it just enough nutritional value to pass it off as a "milk." It's farking barley water.

  • As an aside, you can make barley water at home, easily, and it's pretty damned good in the summer as a way to rehydrate if you're working or playing outside.

    Sunflower oil & shiatake mushroom extract for body, sunflower lecithin for emulsification (so it doesn't separate.)

    What's it taste like?

    I've only ever had the JP/SK "tea" variants. which is basicamente the same as FormlessOne's link, except nothing addded: no sweetener or acids or anything. it's quite lovely hot or iced, very basic nutty earthy taste.

    if you've ever had genmaicha ("popcorn" tea) with the toasted rice, it's kind of like that but minus the green tea entirely?

    or, a new favorite (thanks to that awful kyuzokai character) is soba tea - roasted buckwheat.

    and to continue FormlessOne's thougts of outdoor hydration, these two (non-grain-based) are both delicious for any reason a'tall -

    If you use plain pearl barley, you get a slight hit of grain, which pairs really well with the lemon. If you toast the barley, it's more like a tea - if you've ever had genmaicha, the toasted grain flavor is reminiscent. It's actually quite nice. I usually make the plain stuff in the summer, and make the toasted stuff when I'm at late-season SCA events - two quarts of that in a Thermos, and I don't miss my tea while I'm waiting for the wife to wake up.

    Highly recommend a nice lemon-ginger switchel. Another easy-to-make drink, and it's nice if you've got a slight cold or sore throat.

    Missed that, and, exactly. Loves me the toast.

    tbh I've never really had/made it t'home, but more like seems constantly present at Japanese conveniences in/around Boston, SF, NYC, etc.
    there'd always be a card table with pitcher and cups, cold in summer hot in winter. so freakin' perfect. so very homey, comforting and welcoming.

    okie, fine, just ordered me up a 1kg of boricha/damaicha/mugicha... barley sourced from Gyna, but production in SK. some reviewers on spamazon warned about acrylamide, which to be fair is pretty bad stuff, but is also present in just about anything we maillard - even covfefe, potato chips, ...

    also, here is a recent (bad) pic of what soba cha may look like. nothing inherent to any particular nature of the thing, just the sheer comfort, gave me one of the best sleep in ages.

  • I'd drive east bound and down from GA to AR just to get some of that milk.
