Pacaya & Rappy, enjoyed our get together at Cheers. I will be back up to the City in about a week. I had hoped to bring along some of the Bohemian Pilsener (officially done lagering today), but I don't think it is going to last that long...man its' tasty! Next season I definitely have to upgrade to much larger batches (I'm planning to go to 15G).

Pacaya, let me know how the EC-1118 works out for you.

So did I, though I wish I could've gotten there sooner. That's OK about the Pilsener, I'm more of an ale man myself. Absolutely, I'll let you know about the EC-1118 in a couple of months.
On an unrelated note, I just made a summer ale for the coming months:

Ginger summer ale

5 gal

1 lbs Wayne pale 6-row malt
1 lb flaked oats
1 lb crystal 10L
1 lb light brown sugar
2 lb Dcaribe LME
2.2 lb honey

0.5 oz willamette 5.5 AA% @60
2 oz Linden @ 15
2 oz Fresh ginger @ 10

Wayne Wild Brett mix Ale @ 22-24ºC

Projected OG 1.049
Projected FG 1.006
Projected SRM 7-9
Projected IBU 12

I'll also let you know how it comes out, hopefully even share some.

Finally got my calcium carbonate and root beer extract released by SAT. Won't do that again.

Order was shipped to Miami around Nov-1 and I just got my paws on it last week (Feb).

Value of order was only $33, but it cost me at least Q162...and maybe another Q204...invoice is not real clear and bundled with other shipments. Mostly in fees from the shipping company (CPX) to handled this BS.

Ironically, the calcium carbonate, which was the most suspicious looking item, appears to be completely untouched. If they took a sample they did an expert job of resealing it (which I seriously doubt). They did generate a stack of paperwork of course, but in the end accomplished nothing.

Now that it is Feb my brewing season is coming to an end and I won't have use for this stuff until next year.

Never had problems with any other brewing ingredients orders. Lesson learned I guess....don't ship little plastic bags full of white powder.

I expect if shipping with TRANSCARGO these issues won't occur. CPX tends to do things by the book.

Welcome Delano!

Well I finally got around to brewing the all grain porter, it's happily bubbling away in the fermenter. Most went well, except for the brewhouse efficiency that really sucked. Really blaming this on the sparge calculation software, will do it manually next time. Smells delish though!

FFFFFUUUUUU... AB/InBev is going all out for "summer". Well, might as well catch them while we can.

Thanks for the heads up.

Cool. Starting to see signs of better beers in CA.

We are in Playa El Tunco, El Salvador. Just had a few at Brew Revolution - a nano-brewery here. Good stuff. Staying at hotel Mopelia. They have a good selection of imports and sell BR's brews too.

Well maybe i can smuggle some brew down for you? We are on our way to Panama and plan to spend time in Nica on the way.

Today is our last day in El Tunco. Going to San Salvador tomorrow. Brew Rev brew is also sold at a few places there.

They are filming a promotion at Brew Rev today.
