Connected my new 4 port co2 manifold to my original 2 port manifold with a close nipple. Spent the next hour fixing leaks from almost all of the connections on the new manifold. Picked up the parts to make a BMBF and grains to do a clone of Surly Coffee Bender.

It was a good day on the homebrew front. I visited a LHBS shop that I just found. It is actually really close and well-stocked, which means supplies just got a whole lot easier. I picked up some Nottingham and Red Star Montrachet yeast.

I'm headed back to work on Monday so I worked on getting my primaries busy. I just brewed up a fresh 2.5 gallon batch of an English honey ale partial mash recipe (basically an ESB with 0.5 lbs of honey to boost the kick and cut the maltiness, kinda like the Obama Brew, we'll see how it goes). And since everyone has been raving about EdWort's apfelwein recipe and it was dead-easy to make, I grabbed a gallon of apple juice, subbed out the corn sugar with honey, and mixed up a gallon of that. I'll hopefully be busy enough to not be counting airlock bubbles for the next few weeks.

I've got about thirty 12 oz homebrews conditioning in my hot water heater room (~72F) and the first few good ones should be ready for the fridge this week. I'm looking forward to cracking one on Friday!

I sprayed both 1-gallon carboys with black spray-on bed-liner. It does the job well, but after the fermentation, I'll rough up the glass, and spray it down again.

What I didn't expect to do was brew the Rogue, and then brew 1 gallon of my own recipe - 4:1 of Maris Otter to choc-rye. 3 oz. of Amarillo over an hour, with Safale US-05. Fermenting nicely, with a healthy blow-back. I expect to rack to secondary on 3/8, possibly brew another original - 5 Gambrinus ESB, pepper, grains o' paradise, and then Citra bomb, ending with a Wyeast Irish Ale pitch.

Soaked bottles in a tub of oxiclean to wash and remove labels. Preparing for bottling. Being proactive... Hooray!
