Thanks for the good critique, Rich. I think you were a bit too kind, but then again, I always judge my brews more harshly than others might. Me, I don't have to be too kind to myself. I can take it.
Have you and Jocelyn had the second one yet?
BTW, I just finished writing up the notes from that batch. If you send me your email again (I never put it in my address book) I'll email it to you: firstname.lastname@example.org
OWM: Not any real changes, just small ones like the bitterness subsided and became more mellow, beer was clearer, etc.
I'm on the road a lot for work, 16 weeks so far this year, so I can't always bottle when I want to.
If I can remember it all I've been to or through and to work in: IL, IN, OH, PA, NJ, KY, TN, GA, FL, SC, NC, VA, IA, SD, WY, MT, WA, OR, UT, CO, NE, AR, LA, MI, MS, WVA, AL, 2 weeks in Germany in July, and I'm going to Korea for 2 weeks in Oct. I think my calendar is open until next year come Nov. since I'm not deploying to Afghanistan or Iraq.
In all that is home improvements and I managed to brew 16 batches of beer.
I have 3 in the secondaries right now waiting to be bottled. And I really want to brew something this weekend.
I also manage to play one of my 5 guitars every day.
Oh, yeah, and I'm a lazy cuss too (if you can believe it).
I can hardly wait to retire in 4 years.
