Topic: Idaho brewing (4 msgs / 45 lines)
1) From: Brian Nelson-Munson
Les:  GI Joe's sells an all stainless french press that we take  
camping.  It must be available at other camping outlets.  It's not  
nirvana but it does the job in a rough environment.
We used to stop off at a place called Starkey's hot springs in the  
central Idaho mountains out of McCall when I was a kid.  Beautiful  
place.

I lived in McCall for a while back in the late 90's. We had 300 inches of
snow that year. That area felt like Valhalla to me. Mile high elevation, big
pristine lake, 9,000 foot peaks and sitting right on the edge of the largest
wilderness area in the lower 48...And the salmon! I hope to return someday.
I used to go to "Last Chance Hotspring" about five minutes north of town.

Did you brew any coffee at 9000 feet?  We were in La Veta, CO for much
of  last month. (On a BUSINESS TRIP, yet...!) It sits at 7000 ft,
where water boils at about 199 Deg F.  Our moring coffee was just
fine, even with a slightly lower brew temp in the ol' drip pot.

Alas, the only coffee I was drinking when I lived in Idaho were the
occasional sugary frapp-ish concoctions from the local bookstore/drugstore,
so I can't report on the effects of elevation on brewing.
