Village Tavern in Hammondsport (sp?) has the most un-be-****ing-leivable beer list I've ever seen. Literally eight pages of four-point font. Great food, too.
True that!

Last time we were out there, we did hit up a small new little brewery, Keuka Brewery. Not worth going out of your way to find, at least at the time. Bland, boring, very young-tasting beers, basically out of someone's house. Far less impressive than most of the homebrew I've sampled (it didn't seem he was brewing on much more than a homebrew scale; I saw a regular copper immersion chiller kicking around).

Ya, I wasn't that impressed with them either. Wagner's makes some good brew. The brewery/winery is a bit of a clusterfark with 200 people milling around but that was my only cause for a frown. There is also a new brewery/winery way up at the northern end of the eastern shore of Seneca that my daughter says makes great beer. It;s run by three brothers (I think that 's the name of the operation) and one bother makes really nice iwne, one make pedestrian wine and one makes beer. Three buildings on the location, three different products. The brewery sounded like a Jimmy Buffett concert when we were there, live bands, lots of laughing and a wild party going on. Unfortunately I was with my folks and my daughters so we just stayed at the nicer of the wineries and I listened wistfully to the sounds of the debauchery going on next door.

The guy up the street from Don is called Goat something. He wasn't open on the Monday I was there so i can't speak to his beer.

Nope. Drinking iced tea at the time.

We didn't fill the barrel.

I topped off the barrel with what we had fermenting in the keg and the barrel isn't topped off. We're at least a couple gallons short.

Whats the gravity at?

Even if someone (CB) just boils up some LME and wheat extract on the stove top with a hop pellet or two it would be better than leaving it with a lot of headspace.

The sample i pulled outta the "top off barrel" was 1014.

My vote is for someone (babalu) to just do another turrrrrbid mash to top off.

Seriously.... Like you dont want to?

Maybe having Babalu do it is the better idea. Imagine how silly CB would feel if he got a stuck mash using malt extract.
