These pickles are good! The flavor selection seems a bit different than the last offer.

so.....approximately 25% less pickles than last time for 5 dollars more.

On top of that, the majority of people in the previous thread were not excited about these. While a few people posted favorable reviews after receiving them, i'm gonna definitely pass.

Pickles?
Not only can I not understand why pickles are on wine.woot, but they're really expensive! You can make this stuff on your own very easily! >_>

I wanted to like the last batch of these that were offered and the 3 flavors tasted good but what I didn't like was the fact that the pickles weren't crunchy but squeaky when eaten. Unfortunately though, I won't be buying these flavorful pickles.

that was fun while it lasted!

I took a chance and bought these last time. I could not believe how amazing these were! I hadn't eaten pickles in a very long time... Maybe since I was a kid... But I ate every pickle in all three jars! Each time I ate one, the flavor was intense and I wanted to save all the remaining pickles so I wouldn't run out too quickly! After finishing the last one, I have been waiting and waiting for these to return and went looking online and found them through one or two other sites (like Williams Sonoma and Dean and Deluca) but the prices were high (especially with shipping!)

The previous woot had flavors like Damn Spicy, a New York Deli one, and a whiskey sour one... All amazing but two of the three were spicy. I love spicy food so they all were perfect but I could see the damn spicy being a little much for the sensitive palette.

This time, I'm disappointed to see what looks like pickle chips versus halves, but based on my previous experience and the fact I have waited so long for these... I'm in for three!!! $75 in pickles!!! Looks like I'll be eating pickle chips out of the jar soon enough as a snack!

I highly recommend based on the flavors, but you have to like spicy food for the Damn Spicy one.

Thanks woot! And the Brooklyn Brinery!

I got a fever... and the only prescription... is more woot!

Are these pickles kosher? Last time they were on Woot, there was a comment saying they were working on getting Rabinical supervision.

Has that happened yet?

I've sent an email asking. It'll be later in the morning before I hear back. Or hopefully the owners will pop in to answer.

I saw "artisan pickles" in the thumbnail, and immediately thought I was in for 3. Then I saw the 25 dollar price tag, and realised I'm in for 0. I can get artisan pickles from Pike Place that are every bit as good, and even paying the tourist tax, they won't run 9 dollars a jar....

Hello! We are still in the process of kosher certification! It's a very long and in-depth process that I have been slowly chipping away at. Nonetheless, we will be certified soon. Cheers!

Hey Hey, our pickles aren't meant to suit every single pallet, that would be boring. We choose to create new and exciting flavors that are quite often unconventional while still being in the realm of palatable and delicious. If you want a classic sour and are in NYC then stop by our factory and Brinery store on President st. for our whiskey barrel ferments. Cheers!

Which organization? If it's the OU, I know some people on the inside. I can try to help speed things up a bit

Not sure if this answers your question completely but KSA is the organization. I'm getting bogged down by an incredible amount of paperwork, including letters from our various chains of supply about their certification. We will make this happen, but organizing all the pieces of the puzzle is taking much longer than expected. Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated!

I understand where you're coming from for sure. I will say that using premium ingredients for a higher quality end product totally explains the price. We also pride ourselves in creating every single jar, we will never contract out our production or choose sub par ingredients to lower our cost. We believe in our products and are comfortable with having to charge more if that means we can 110% stand behind our finished product. Cheers!

Different products like what?. I have no interest in trying any of your other pickles unless they are like BaTemte.

You're sounding like a donkey right now. The guy made a very decent offer and you poop on his pickles. A review is one thing, but your attitude is ridiculous...it's obviously you like more old school style pickles, why not just take the offer, pick up a jar or two of his other pickled products and let it be.

Anyway, all rants aside, i'll probably pick these up as I JUST heard about these beer pickles yesterday from a friend. I'm pretty surprised to see them on woot today. Despite that, i'm wondering if you can provide any info on home pickling. I've tried the hot bat submersion pickles and they always end up WAYYYY too soft....on the other hand, i've been told by many that just hot packing them (just pouring hot vinegar solution over pickles, then sealing) isnt safe. What is your technique? Do you ferment?

Thanks!

$25 (plus shipping) for cucumbers and vinegar. Can't beat a deal like that.

brooklynbrine


quality posts: 9 Private Messages brooklynbrine

we use the water bath canning technique. It's important to use fresh produce, keep that produce as cold as possible before placing in jars, and to watch your processing times. There's a lot of info out there about how long a jar should be processed for, but over cooking for a couple of minutes will drastically change the texture. Be sure to also store the pickles in a cool place, eat them within a year of making, and chill before eating. If you're ever in Brooklyn be sure to stop by our Brinery and get a lesson first hand. Cheers!

The same can be said about the jerky. People are lazy and shop for convenience. I know I do.
