Could be yup. Def made it cost more....

First batch in the fermenter, yeast pitched. OG 1.050. Second batch is coming to a boil.

Hydro sample was yummy! I think I hit my IBU's dead on.


Edit:

Done! 10.5 gallons in fermenters. Mild is kegged and under pressure.

Also I am never doing two batches in one day again.... Ow my... everything....
SWMBO I less then impressed too.... Fortunately she works for the same company and is already looking forward to drinking this beer

Finally got both kegged/carbing up here's the hydro sample from batch 1. Its not showing exactly right in the pic both batches finished at 1.008 and taste the same. They are nearly perfect, I think after carbing they will be perfect. But already very drinkable, and malty. Just like a good BC pale ale should be! Crystal clear.

Washooo Pale Ale was a hug hit! The first keg was dead in 2 hours! The second was pretty much dead by midnight (about 3 hours for that one).

Sorry the only pics I managed to get are in those classy red solo cups (but you can see colour and clarity in the hydro sample anyway). Those beers in the cups had been there for about 10 minutes or longer. It had great head retention, an nice copper colour, and a nice lighter body. Very sessionable. Both my wife and I had a few glasses. Some people had much more then that.... The Picture of people is just at the start. About 6 in the evening. I had just tapped the first keg.

Default The Results of Washooo

This video is much later in the evening.

This is the Vice President/Co owner/CFO of Wholesale Furniture Brokers (www.gowfb.com or www.gowfb.ca). The company I work for. I have no idea how much washooo he had had by this point....

BC is the only place I know (other than Japan) where people take their shoes off to walk on a hardwood floor. Congrats on your successful BCPA. You have certainly advanced the cause! I plan a version using homegrown hops early next year.

Yes, of course. I'm in Nelson, and that's what my back yard looks like today.

Yup we are for real. Have been in business for 10 years as of Aug 2012. The mark up on furniture on stores is insane. We only stock what moves fast, the rest we drop ship that's why we can do it so cheap. If you mention you found the site through the Washooo Pale Ale post and your user name I can probably get you a further discount too.

That sounds amazing! What are you growing?

I haven't just added to the BCPA cause, but home brewing in general. Not everyone had had my beer before that party. Some were sceptical that home brew could be good, let alone amazing. Our office party's are open to all, so there where even some parents there. One old guy didn't believe it was home made, he kept trying to get me to give him the brand name. I switched many palm bay/premix cocktail drinkers to drinking my beer. And one girl who normally only drinks red wine was double fisted. Wine in one hand, Washooo in the other. "Its like candy!" she said.

That background in that pic looks familiar are you in the BC interior? Or slightly farther north?
