I ordered enough supplies for 2 batches of beer from midwest a couple hours ago. Also got some more PBW,but finally found a bucket lid tool! No more sore finger tips from tight lids. Had to search it on midwests' site,couldn't find it under equipment,etc. With a dollar store rubber mallet to tap the lids down tight,life is going to get a little easier.
And that dark,smokey lager will be great to smell in the BK. It & my Hopped & Confused alewith that ale/kolsh yeast wl029 will be an interesting upgrade from the Cooper's ale yeast packets I used on version1.

Moved my fermentor of Altbier back out to the garage so it could take a nice cold nap.

Painted the bathroom so I can, in good conscience, brew more.

Bottled a batch of sour cranberry ale for next Christmas. Lots of things went wrong with this batch, so that being said... All bottles stored in a waterproof vented "overpack" in anticipation of bottle bombs. Hydro sample looks like red wine, tastes tart like a dry red wine too.

I had two of my beers judged in a private contest. They both came back as drinkable and as having good potential, but basically mediocre as judged.

I BOUGHT "The Complete Joy of Home Brewing", and ingredients for my version of Orfy's "Boddington's Bitter".

My intent is to make something these same judges will be dumbstruck by.

....(((dammit))).

Researching all grain techniques, so I'm ready to do my 1st AG batch next week. Also reading 200 Clone Brews to get an idea of what I'd like to brew for this spring.
