Had a great time. Thanks to philrose and SWMBO for being excellent hosts. philrose brewed a Saison, the rest of us watched and drank. It was great hanging out with Mosa, Zen_Brew and their SWMBOs. Mosa and Zen_Brew brought some great homebrew and I brought a couple of Naked City beers. I'll post some pics once my phone charges up. If you can't hold out, I Tweeted throughout the brewday. You can check it out at www.twitter.com/nakedcitybeer

Thanx so much for the hosting to you and swmbo. Most gracious hosting all the way around. Great to hang out and help brew. Great to try all the great beer everyone brought from Brewtopia,, Philrose and Mosa, and great to share some of my pipeline.

I had a blast and it would be great if we did these kind of get togethers more often. I'll have to look at the logistics of hosting m own get together sometime. It was a great way to spend a Sunday!! I didn't remember the camera so looking forward to some of Brewtopias pics.

Great time!

Some really excellent beers were sampled, homebrew and commercial.

Big thanks to all that could make it out.

Yeah I had an awesome time too! Thanks for sharing your place with us PhilRose! Highlights for me were Brewtopia's Basil Imperial Pils, Zen_Brew's IPA, and PhilRose's worst beer he's ever made (not bad by any stretch!). Cheers guys!!

Here's pictures!

A take on Hot Scotchies. This was first runnings mixed with a little Rogue Whiskey. A mighty tasty beverage.

A shot of the group. Left to Right, Zen_Brew, PhilRose, and Brewtopia.

That runaway wort chiller hose was crazy! The thing smacked one of the hot scotchy glasses straight into the concrete wall!

Nobody's hurt...thankfully!

Default Results!

Holy cow. Hydro shows from 1.082 to 1.009

Brew pal gave this beer the following stats:

88% app. Attenuation
25 ibu
9.6% abv

This thing is easily the booziest creation to come out of my humble fermenter.

Now for the obligatory hydro taste...

Delicious. Flat & warm. I catch the peachy esthers smelled earlier in the ferment. A bit on the "hot" alcohol but masked by the yeast and malt. Malt does come through the relative dryness.

This sucker is good!

So, to secondary after a short d-rest? Or just bottle that bad boy? Input appreciated!

Mosa, brewtopia, zen_brew, you guys gotta try this brew!

Wow! That is quick to drop that much in gravity. You know, somehow I don't know what yeast you used. I missed the whole yeasting of the wort. What did you put in there? I understand some of the saison strains will kick the final gravity even lower than where you are at now.

I will definitely be keeping my ears open for when it is done. I'm looking forward to trying one!
