I tried to help Ernie keg his 15 gallon British pale SMaSH for his party. It went well and it ought to be a great beer.
This weekend I brewed a pilsner. I'm calling it the New Baby German Pilsner. It was a small test batch on my pilot brew system. I likely will not have enough time to lager it properly but ,we will see eh? good times as always
Ernie's Memorial Day blowout is on. He single handedly brewed 15 gallons of a British pale SMaSH using Marris otter and east kent Goldings. This ought to be delicious.
This week I intend to do a small test batch of a bohemian pils. In honor of the upcoming birth ifs 3rd child. Next would be the Penelope IPA.
And I found a picture of me and Ernie from the big brew to share
Went to the big brew this sat. and we brewed Phinyweizen which is a Belgian wit. All went very well and we met and talked to some cool folks and my wife came by and brought the kiddies to hang out with us. It was a very good time indeed. Unfortunately I didn't take a single picture of the event so use your imagination for visuals.
In preparation for the event we had to clear up some space in our fermenters so we bottled the Eastvleteren and the Lawnmowin Lager. Up next I intend to brew a bohemian pilsner and of course my blue ribbon major award winning Penelope IPA. afterwards I must take a sabbatical as my wife will deliver our 3rd child and I intend to be extremely busy at least for a little while. I do hope to be back in action In time to brew an octoberfest and rebrew the scotch ale and may be get some kind of chrismas ale ready early enough to actually enjoy it on Christmas. we'll see
Its GO time. The Saison was brewed last weekend along with an experimental batch of a cream ale. This Saturday is the BIG BREW at the homebrew store MDHB. We will be there all day making a 10 gallon batch of Phinyweizen. Its a Belgian wit brewed and named for my son.
Sooner than later I will have to brew my Penelope IPA for my daughters birthday. Some folks think it odd for me to brew beers to celebrate my children's birthdays. To them I say "go to hell" I do what I want. New baby is on the way and I have yet to decide this childs beer flavor. so I will brew a bohemian pilsner and see how it works out.
In the kegs I have the honey pale ale which is quite tastey but a bit drier than the previous batch, and the benevolent brown. Ernie put rum soaked oak in his.
I'm the guy who writes this crap
