Well,I still have two armloads of recently emptied bottles to wash. Ordered my 1st partial mash kit from midwest this morning,their PM cascade pale ale. Ordered all the New Zeland hops they had for 25% off as well! 3 ounces each of; Motueka,Pacifica,Super Alpha,Gem,& Wakatu.The descriptions on midwest site were interesting in that they have some very unique flavors to them. Lemon,lemongrass,lemon/lime,floral,oaky,blackberry,etc. Sounded so darn good I just had to have 3 of each for 15oz TTL. Got 2 ounces left in freezer,so I'll be stocked up for a couple batches anyway. If I find the heating elements at home cheapo today istead of ordering,the stove'll get fixed today as well. Gotta clean up the mancave since the video software on my camera is workin again. New videos will be forthcoming as well.

Took gravities on my hefe and vanilla pumpkin lager. Hefe is done and will be bottled this weekend. The lager still has a ways to go before I raise the temp for the diacetyl rest.

Checked the gravities on my big SMaSH experiment. Both brews were 10 lbs of Maris Otter Pale Malt, mashed at 152-154. Both had the same OG of 1.065 (REMARKABLE!!) for an 85% efficiency. The best I've had in a looooong time. Today's gravity check was 1.009 and the krausen is falling. I expect to keg and cold crash these this weekend. About 12psi for three weeks at 42, not even gonna connect the tap lines until then. Hoping to get good clarity by day 21, as most of my beers have been.

Both had the same hop schedule and amounts, one ounce for each addition at 60, 10, 5, and whirlpool. First brew was Columbus 13.9, the second was Willamette 4.7. The Willamette is very nice, as expected. The Columbus will take a little more time. I'm ok with that. I will have 4 beers on this weekend, with two in cold condition.

Time to start planning the next two SMaSH brews. Same 10 lbs Maris Otter Pale Malt for both. Thinking Falconer's Flight for one and I'm open to suggestions for the second. Same amounts and schedule as above. Four unique beers differentiated by only one change of one ingredient.

Bottled MisterTipsy's Amarillo Amber Ale - used Carared, Special Roast, Munich, Pilsen and Amarillo of course.

It's a deep red / amber color. The flat version tasted good. I look forward to the bubbly version.

Checked my WY1010 starter and getting set to step it up, verified inventory for my Sunday brew session and what would be beer without pickles! Getting set to make 150 jars of spicy hot garlic pickles on Saturday with my fellow pickling maniac and all the kids!
