Picked up a 50 lb sack of 2-row, another 10 pounds of other grains, and a half pound of various hops (Challenger, Warrior and Fuggles), despite six or seven pounds of other varieties in the freezer, for an ESB and an RIS I am planning to brew this weekend.

I just tested my first batch. NB Irish red ale which started out at 1.042 and finished at (with corrections for temp) at 1.01 It tastes really nice and to get a taste test with co2 I put a sample in a soda stream bottle added a blast of c02( not very scientific but hey) to carb it and I ended up with a nice creamy head and to my taste a very drinkable Red Ale. This puppy is going in the keg, gassed and into my newly built keezer this evening. Whoo Hoo...

I just un-boxed my order from Midwest a few minutes ago. I believe I'm going to start my first all grain brew tomorrow morning!

Just bottled my wild yeast saison. Captured yeast from my front porch by letting a jar of wort sit out for a few hours. Stepped it up with a starter and brewed a 2.5G extract saison. The yeast demolished the sugars in the wort and it finished out at 1.004. Drinking the leftovers from the bottling bucket now and it's delicious.

Received my shipment from Northern Brewer. Subsequently installed bulkhead and weldless Brewmometer on my new kettle, and installed bulkhead and false bottom into the Rubbermaid 10 gallon cooler I've had waiting. Seems I've run out of plumber's tape, so I'll have to make a Home Depot run before putting on the ball valves and leak testing.

Picked up some miscellaneous supplies at the LHBS. Bottled 2.5 gallons of Arctic Brown Ale and 2.5 gallons of Black Coffee RyePA. Picked up a bottle of rye whiskey that I'll use to soak oak cubes in and toss in the whiskey rye porter that's currently in primary.

Had my first taste of BierMunchers Captain Hooked on Bitters Red Hook ESB clone. 2 weeks bottle conditioning and damn...it was fantastic! I can't wait to taste this in another week. I also took my 1st gravity reading my all grain Caribou Slobber after 18 days in primary. Down to 1.010. I'll take another reading in a couple days and probably bottle it.

I pre-ordered five varietals of hops (centennial, chinook, glacier, northern brewer and willamette) for planting this spring and stopped by my lhbs to get ingredients for my next two batches. One of which I will hopefully be brewing tomorrow.
