I sniffed the airlock of the Cream Stout that started bubbling yesterday.

I pulled one of the Ambers I just bottled on Friday (my first batch) out of the box and considered opening it. Decided against it even though the pull of the force is strong.

I gave two craft brewers some business. Ithaca Beer Co. Caskazilla and Otter Creek Stovepipe Porter. I am appreciateing their contributions to the Beer Universe.

Bottled an extract wheat, and did my final preperations for my first all grain batch later this week. I also finally stooped stressing about not being able to get my beers under a fg of 0.020 (12 extract brews, one went under 0.020, what the **** - different beer types, yeasts, ferment temps, added extract at different times of the boil, etc). Of course, if this all grain doesn't get to a decent fg I'm going to be more than pissed.

Yesterday I added gelatiin to my wee heavy, and finished the last pint or so that was in the keg of my blonde ale to make room for today's work.

Today I cleaned 6 kegs using my sump pump CIP system and transferred my IIIPA into one that I had sanitized, replaced all the o-rings on and lubed up. Then I stuck it in the kegerator to cold crash, and will be adding some gelatin to that one tomorrow.

My milk stout is still bubbling away contentedly.

Off the beaten track a little today, my ginger beer plant arrived, so I got that all set up and bubbling away, fingers crossed nothing explodes. Its an insane way to brew - get fermentation started, bottle as fermentation starts really kicking in, let it ferment in the bottles and quickly throw them in the fridge before they explode.

Today I watched my starter grow. Did my first yeast washing a few days ago and used it to make a starter. Been sitting on the stir plate for about 30 hours now. This morning when I left for work the mixture was very cloudy and I couldn't even see any swirling going on. Tonight, the top layer of liquid is clearing and the bottom of the 2000ml flask is exploding with new yeast. It's awesome!

Showed my SWMBO's ex mother in law the brew closet showing her the carboy working away. She has decided to join me for the next brew session.

Took some trub out of the fermenter... smelled like bread. So I let it sit... after 15 minutes my last beer was a punch of cinnamon. Slight sweet and wonderful.... thank you yeast!
