Forum rules
Not 'Rules', necessarily, but here's how BerserkerDay goes:

I'll be launching offers in groups of 8-10, in increments of 30 minutes. Sponsors will stay pegged at the top of the forum all day, each new group of offers will come in at the top with them for their launch grouping, cycling into the 'normal' thread after their launch time has passed, with a new launch group posted atop the thread thereafter. Discussion is encouraged, as posting replies moves the thread up to the top of the grouping, whether that is during launch time group or the 'regular' forum.

Keep checking in every 30 minutes for new offers being posted, and keep scrolling down to see everything that has been launched throughout the timeframe in which you've been on the forum, which hopefully is ALL DAY

*** ASTREA CAVIAR - HIGH END CAVIAR DEALS FOR BD11- FRESHLY PACKED FOR THIS SALE PRICING GOOD ALL FEB***

I've had the opportunity to sell some of Astrea's delicious caviar here before and I'm happy to say I have the go-ahead to do so again for Berserkerday. These are all freshly packed in this past week so you'll be getting the freshest possible caviar.

A little about the caviar

The sturgeon are raised 6,500ft above sea level. The pure spring water, stable year-round temperature and lack of pollution ensure the best growing condition for our sturgeons. At such high altitude our fish grow slower, and as a result, lay eggs that are larger in size and more complex in flavor.

Our sturgeons range in age from 10 to over 25 years old. For reference, most caviar is produced from fish that are anywhere from five to eight years old. When they reach maturity, we don’t extract the eggs until the third roe production cycle. The fish absorb the first two roe cycles, which gives them additional nutrition to produce bigger and more flavorful eggs in the third cycle.

Before extraction, we transfer the fish into low-temperature fish ponds with controlled conditions of 8% salt content and a temperature of 40-45 degrees Fahrenheit. There they reside for two months to mimic deep sea conditions. Once extracted, the eggs are cleaned and cured with less than 3% salt content before going through an extended aging period of one to four months. These practices add complexity and depth to our caviar’s flavor.

Our sturgeons fish are grown in natural spring water. We never treat them with antibiotics, instead, we use proprietary natural healing organic herbs to boost immunity. We do not use borax as a preservative, nor do we use food coloring to enhance the color of our eggs. What you see and taste is all natural, a product of carefully raised, mature sturgeon combined with a specialized aging process we have perfected. Similar to wine making, the process of curing and aging caviar is a closely guarded trade secret, an art form unto itself.
I'll be offering three types of caviar for individual sale and a few bundles.

For the individual sales

we will be offering 20% off all retail pricing.
Free shipping for all orders over $300.
Shipping is $35 within California and $55 outside of California - Fedex overnight delivery.

Thank you for all those that have placed orders whether you commented or not. Really appreciate a good start with the GCC preview.

Exchanged many an email with you all today over the caviar. My daughter was constantly yelling at me to pay attention to her in the museum. Ha!

Unless you one of my kids, and then you run through fire for a dose of fish eggs, and beat people away with a stick if they try to get their grubby hands on your stash!!!!
So shines a good deed in a weary world!

Order in for package #2. one question: I've never been in a position to hold caviar for any length of time, we typically consume it within a day or two of purchase. How long is it safe to store in the fridge and still retain optimal (or close) quality?

These were just packed. So 6 weeks would be perfectly fine. Keep it in the coldest part of the fridge. The colder it is, the better the seal, the longer it stays fresh!

Mark also got a shipment that ended up getting delayed by Fedex so the caviar tin was no longer cold when he received it. I sent him a replacement ASAP.

He actually dared to try both of them side by side... and apparently they tasted exactly the same. Guess caviar is more resilient than I give it credit for as long as it's still sealed

Mark also got a shipment that ended up getting delayed by Fedex so the caviar tin was no longer cold when he received it. I sent him a replacement ASAP.

He actually dared to try both of them side by side... and apparently they tasted exactly the same. Guess caviar is more resilient than I give it credit for as long as it's still sealed
Oh yah.. forgot all about that.
Fedex overnight didn't make it, sat in a warehouse in Seattle over the weekend, and by the time i got it, the package was room temp.. (70 degrees or so in June).

Charlie was awesome, sent replacements right away, arrived cold packed and all is well.

Did a blind side by side with the 'spoiled' caviar and the 'good' caviar, and most people didn't really taste a difference, and when forced to pick a favorite it was more or less split between the two.

Bottomline, Great customer service from Charlie/Astrea, and Fedex - pls delay all future shipments for me! ;)

We hosted a caviar / champagne tasting at the local wine shop for the holidays. We did some creme fraiche and blinis for people but almost universally everyone enjoyed it without the creme fraiche for the kaluga and Schrenckii. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised trying them without any carb/creme/additions, especially the Schrenckii.

I just like to do a quick caviar fist bump myself!

One of my favorite accoutrements in general is to take some excellent fresh eggs and sous vide them until the yolk is jelly consistency. Put a little smear of that jellied yolk on a mild flavored toast or blini.

Order in for WB package #2. Looking forward to the sampling!!

Am bringing one each of the 3 tins to do a little caviar tasting this Thursday--what specifically would you recommend for a cracker or other vessel, if any? And an extra brut champagne might be the best beverage match? I've heard ice cold vodka is another nice pairing.

Thanks again, Greg

any non salted carb is fine as a vessel, probably something on the thinner side. I'm also not opposed to a slip of nice french butter + bread + baerii, delicious combo.

pairing wise - i like a more oxidative style champagne to go with it. But extra dry is fine too.

A nice spoonful of the caviar also goes well on top of thin slices of Hamachi with a drop or two of Tosa Joyu.

P.S. - Also placed an order. Thanks again, Charlie.
