    well if you use a bottomless PF without the basket, I reckon you could probably put millions in. With basket,...would depend on how many pounds of Tamp pressure you use. ;D

    Well.. I think thats the beauty of this brew,.. no grind needed.. just let them settle in as they are,... tamp a few times,...pack a few more in,..tamp again firmly and extract the pure green goopy syrup. * :o

    Perhaps roasted to the French taste requirements - wonder if it would taste like frogs legs? [smiley=evil.gif]

    Only one type of frog by the looks, I think it may be better to blend a few varieties*;D

    The only problem with a blend is you would have to make sure they are all the same size or you will "over extract" the small ones ;)

    Re: Remy... has frogs. Scoota has geckos...

    So, Ive come out to the kitchen this evening and on one of my bench tops is a Duralex glass with something other than coffee in it! ;D

    A pink gecko with black eyes is curled up around the lip of the glass, looking all innocent and not the least bit scared of my approach.

    Theyre a bit active around here at the moment and I dont know why. I can hear the little buggers chirping their funny calls at each other. I had to chase one out of my dishdrawer as it was clambouring all over the clean dishes!

    Actually, theyre quite territorial. One night I was sitting in my lounge room and heard a noise that made me go very very still as I wondered what the heck it was. When I finally summoned up the courage to go out to the kitchen to see I found two fat pink geckos out in the middle of the floor, fighting. The sound I could hear was their fat tails slapping against the hard surface! ;D

    Youve got to be quick to photograph these things. Not like a frog at all that sits around waiting for you to poke a giant lens in its face. When I finally have the camera and a gecko in the same place, Ill be sure to post the picture up!

    Mal I think it safe to say no frogs were harmed in the making of this thread.

    By me anyway

    whaahaha good one!

    This is true Mal... while I cropped around, cut pieces of, pasted pieces of, reduced all, layered all, flattened all, levelled all, sharpened all, and uploaded all of my PF frogs,.. not one frog was injured in the process. :D 8-)
