Well, things have been quiet on here locally I see. I will take the liberty to give a quick update on my brewing as of late. I finished the Irish Red and the beer is perfectly carbonated and quite good. The cider is also finished. It is still a bit drier than I personally would like, however not bad coming from plain apple juice. I also made apple jack out of a small portion to try. This is great stuff. I will have to invest in a liquor hydrometer to be able to tell the abv, though I know it can be potent. Ha. I have my next brew day planned for tomorrow. I will be making an English Bitter, still a partial grain mash. I will be swapping some of the Goldings hops for Fuggle hops to give it more of a hop taste. I'll try to keep an update going on this brew. Next plans, getting into full grain mash brews.
