had a good time yesterday fsr402. wish i'd gotten the message about open areas for brewing before i'd left home tho, i so wanted to be brewing! how did eric's second batch come out? was wondering if we got our calcs right or not on how much of the DME to add to the last runnings from your beer. did you hit your target volumes/OG?



ps hows your head today?


next time you guys are brewing give a good lead time and i'll bring some other brewers from down here.

I hit my numbers right on. Thought that maybe I was low on the OG but when I got home and inputted it into Beersmith it was right. So I hit the 75% that I had guessed at and got the OG of 1.096.
When all was said and done we put 62 gallons of barleywine into the basement

The 2nd running's beer was right on also.


Dude my head has been killing me all day. I woke up with a huge headache and took some meds then I had to help judge that beer comp and it just never went away.

Oh and I sneaked a look at my score at the comp. My 999BW scored a 40.

with as much beer as was being passed around i'd be suprised if anyone there had a clear head today. that doesn't even include all the wines that eric was passing out.
