6hrs after smacking the packs they look/feel like they are about to burst. I feel much better now, thank you Wyeast for the visual reassurance.

Day late and a dollar short. This sounds like fun. I'll watch this thread after Turkey Day. It will be fun mailing and receiving all those boxes of beer for Christmas. I make a spruce altbier for Xmas. Cinnemmemnnn in it and touch of nutmeg. Its not on the list, but its very holiday.

Just finished brewing the juniper rye bock! Everything went well, I hit all my numbers. Things seemed to take forever though, probably because its a miserable 98 degrees outside. I want to make sure this fully attenuates, so I mashed a little low for a bock at 152. The juniper berries have an aroma and flavor of a freshly cut tree. My rough schedule is going to be a 2 month primary at 52 and then lager for 3 months at 37ish, force carb, and have these ready to ship the weekend after Thanksgiving. Here are a few pictures!!

Even with the Santa hat at 98 degrees, nice.

You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I saw this thread last year and initiated something in the club I'm in. We had 5 members participate. Was pretty fun and we'll probably do it again this year.

Dry hopped my test batch of English IPA today. 1.5 oz of EKG stewing for 10 days. The hydrometer samples are tasty!

By the way, what are we shooting for as a ship date?

I popped one of the 3711 Tripels today, way too early but I couldn't help it. Man, is this looking like it will be a wonderful beer! Just a touch of higher alcohols that should smooth out by Thanksgiving; otherwise, a light effervescent beer with ctrus esters and light peppery phenolics... until the 9.5% hammer comes down You never even see it coming /drunk
