Got some fittings to hook the IC to the pump so I can chill without using the garden hose. Then I checked the gravity of my ESB. Still a little high (1.018 with Wyeast 1968). Gonna let it sit for a couple more weeks.

It was a big brew weekend at my house. Saturday was for projects:

- Bought a clean homer bucket and parts to finally mount my old Corona mill permanently on a bucket.
- Bought 50' of 1/2" copper to upgrade my wort chiller and assembled. I'll use the smaller one (25' of 3/8 copper) as a pre-chiller.
- Hit up the brew store and picked up a couple bags of grain.

Sunday was even busier--I started at 10AM and went till midnight:

- Brewed my English IPA, with a two-hour mash schedule (I started it before church and finished up when we got back)
- Bottled my White House Honey Ale AG recipe--super tasty, I can't wait for this to be ready
- Tried a test bottle of the spiced Christmas ale I bottled last week. The flavor's rounding out, but somehow it's still way over-spiced, much more than what I remember from previous years. Going to have to review what I did wrong on that one.
- Bottled about six gallons of hard cider after backsweetening with fresh cider. Going to have to monitor these kind of closely and pasteurize when they hit proper carbonation. This stuff tastes amazing!
- Prior to bottling the WHHA and the cider, cleaned and sterilized 150+ bottles which had been knocking around the basement for several months. We're having a "bring a non-screw off six pack" holiday party at my house on Friday and it's a good thing--I've got two batches of beer and another six gallons of cider ready to bottle, and only a couple of dozen bottles left in my storage closet!

After drinking a home brew and noticing that it was still green, I postponed bottling what's in my fermenter right now and will let it sit for an extra week.

Puttin away some cleaned up stuff from brew day that dried. Cleaned & rinsed the grain/hop socks the other day,might finally have a small pot to boil them in before PBW soak. Brew kettle soaking now. Still got an armload or two of bottles to rinse out. My joints were pretty shot after brew day. Always takes a couple days to rest them.

I only drink green beer on St. Pat's.

Brewed a second go at a west coast ipa. Put the kettle outside to cool, but still took a lot of time. Like 2.5 hours.

Will likely be investing in a plastic swamp cooler for the next batch.

Decided to ditch the BIAB and built a MLT out of a 10G round cooler. Easiest DIY project ever. Went from cooler to mash tun in about 5 min. Celebrated my victory with a home brewed pumpkin pi ale.
