Bottled my nut-brown ale, which already tastes delicious. I'm bummed about waiting the requisite priming time, particularly with all this great fall weather. Now, what to put in the carboy next?

Also, sent out inquiry emails to several area orchards about apple variety availability and price, and lined up a cider press for rental. Yay for autumn!

today has been a bussssyyy day... first I siged up two new mebers here on HBT from my homebrew club. Next I started conditioning oak cubes for a sour I'm doing tommorow so, I'm trying to rush ot along by boiling them like 5 times and soaking them in my saison. Next I weighed out and crushed a 20lb grain bill for my weekend marathon brew days starting 7 am tommorow and going until Sunday afternoon !!!!! 4 guys and brew as much as we can and sleep in between batches and take turns making sure we don;t burn my house down.

Emailed a local brewery to see if the recipe I have come up with based on the ingredients they list on their website for one of their seasonal brews (a pineapple heffe) will get me close to what they produce so I can finally make something wifey likes. Hoping they respond, but I will enjoy my creation regardless.

My loving wife went to the brew store for me while I was at work. Tonight got a starter going with some washed US05 for a brew this weekend, and got some oak ships soaking in scotch for a barleywine.

Bought the grains for the next batch, BCB Haus Pale. Going to use it as a base to use up some of my last years hops. Also went to the machine and bought 15 gallons of RO, Florida tap water tastes just like it is from the pool.

Bottled my blonde for the wedding later in the month and my vanilla pumpkin lager. Also put in the dry hops for KeyWestBrewing's Badfish IIPA. For waking up sick as a dog this morning I'd say that's a pretty productive day.

Did my first all grain brew (BIAB) - but brown ale. I got horrible conversion so I boiled off a lot of the water to get my gravity close to target.
