I hope to brew another batch of the SNPA clone. Last one came out a little heavier than I expected and finished sweeter. Still good, but I think it's giving me a beer gut. I've adjusted my recipe to reflect my recent efficiencies and hopefully I'll be a little closer. Also going to try using a dry yeast this time. Hopefully I'll get better attenuation.

Yah, my Heffe turned out with a little higher OG and ABV because my new system is now at about 80% eff... I mashed it cool though so it ended up at about 1.011 or 1.012. It is so freaking awesome!!!! This will be the FIRST time I have EVER made the same brew twice... wow.

I was planning to brew a Helles Lager, but I was not able to get a starter made early enough... so it will have to wait a couple weeks until my Heffe is bottled up.

Well, i made two 1 liter starters and was goign to brew 10 gallons of an APA last friday and got the sh!ts. So, as the weekend faded away i decided to brew last night, got home and received a royal ass kicking from a cold i picked up from my daughter. So, baring any unforseen illness from Ebola or something, come hell or high water i will be brewing my 10 gallons of APA this weekend!
