Default County Fair

This actually took place yesterday but entered beer into local county fair homemade beverage judging contest. I had two beers take 3rd place and one beer took Best in Show. I was pretty proud since this was my first competition I have ever entered by beer into... I won a new turkey fryer and kettle for Best in Show provide by LHBS.. More equipment!!! Currently, debating on giving it to up and coming brewers that need to break off into the all grain reign.

I'm brewing my first 10 gallon batch on my 'awesome' three tier setup (watch out blichmann). My buddies are all still in bed and I'm about to start the boil. Early bird gets the worm!

Kegged 5 gallons of 2 Bad Dogs Double (almost) IPA. Next up is another 10 gallon batch of BM's Centennial Blonde - what a great summer beer!

Worked at the homebrew shop. Since our mill is motorized, I crushed about 100lbs worth of grain.

Promoted home brew by bringing some hefe and brown to my MIL.

Finished installing a weldless spigot on my boil kettle and brewed a Celis White clone - my first pourless brew day. Got to use my diy o2 diffuser wand, too.

Kegged my pumpkin spice porter.

Got one more stainless 1/2" valve, this one will go on the march pump to help gate the flow. Gonna make a Herms outta my mash cooler, keggle, and wort chiller.

Ordered stuff to make a heat stick.

Read some articles on calibrating equipment for my Beersmith trial software. They seem to make this more mysterious than it needs to be.. Went through and added all my old hops and grains to inventory. Added a couple recipes. Not sure I like the direction of holding my recipes hostage in the cloud for a monthly fee. Seems like he is copying Beer Tools in a few ways. I always end up trialing both these softwares at the same time and end up buying neither.

Made a mental note to create liquid volume measurements for tun and keggle.

Found a recipe for a Sierra Nevada clone, noted I have all ingredients already on hand and plan to make this next after I read about yeast washing.

Checked hops plant for the first time in a week. First year for homegrown hops for me and cones just starting appearing a week ago, now they are getting massive. Probably be able to use them this year.

Studied some articles on March pumps and learned some stuff about cavitation, proper priming technique, after marker pump heads and their customer support as well as March people are active on this forum.

Debated buying a yeast stirrer. While my homemade one works, it's kinda cobbled together with hot glue and the magnets seem to come off occasionally. Like to just have a reliable one in case I get into making lagers.

I didn't do anything today, but last night I drank a whole bunch of them. They did more for me than I did for them..
