Topic: No more monkey butts (was No good foam) (7 msgs / 146 lines)
1) From: AlChemist John
"Are you tired of monkey butts?
Are you embarrassed every time you froth milk for a friend?
Do you hear at the coffee maker "yeah, he makes great espresso, but 
(dropping to a whisper) his capps have monkey butts.  (giggle)".
Well now we can help...
Does your partner tell you that it is the quality of the froth that 
matters, not the quantity (you know the truth)?
Well now we can help...
Does the pressure to perform just get to be too much, leaving your milk 
flat and frothless?
Well now we can help...
Have you tried all the various attachments and additive to no avail
Well now we can help...
with the RONCO MILK FROTHER.
Just add milk, pump the pressure, and shoot a stream of milk into cup.
As the cup fills, just watch that milk foam.
No more special wand techniques.
No more guessing 2 holes or 4 holes.
No more wondering if you can perform.
Perfect foam, every time!!!"
Ok, where that came from and what it is all about is that I wonder if there 
might be another way to froth milk (NO, I'm not diyer ).  I have often 
noticed (this morning in particular) that when I milk the goats, I have a 
good 1/3 of the bucket full of silky foam, caused by the streams.  It is a 
pain in this monkey's butt as it is very stable and a pain to filter, but 
it got me thinking. Has anyone heard of streaming milk to froth/foam 
it.  Worth a try?  I don't know, but now it's out there.

Several years ago my daughter who gives great gifts, gave me a Bodum
Frother. The Bodum frother looks almost like a French Press. At first
look I thought she had picked up a cheap press, but written on the side
of the pitcher in six languages (and diagram) are instructions for
placing warm milk into the frother and then churning it up and down
until it reaches the right consistency.  It actually works - with skim
milk, whole milk, cream, soy milk, goats milk. Probably works with water
if you can churn fast enough.

What's the haz-mat certification level of the gloves you must be wearing? Is
a self-contained oxygen breather required? :-)
