We shall see. I have no idea how it will turn out yet. Just a couple grams of hops, but not as many as my APA o_0

At work this afternoon I got an awful message from home; "Explosion in the beer cupboard".
Of course my reply was; "I'll get some more on the way home".
8 Wired Sauvin Saison, Yeasty/Liberty NevaRaven, Pink Elephant Rajah black ale, but not the Croucher Patriot I had been looking for.

The "explosion" was a pinhole in the bottom of a coopers PET bottle, right next to the injection point, draining about 500ml from the top shelf to the bottom shelf. It was an amber partial mash that has been in the bottle for two months, the remainder did smell a bit off. I had downed one on wednesday and no indications of anything amiss. I emptied two more that we quite hard and left the last two that still were a little squeezy.
And then I washed the beer off all my beer. Mostly.

After all my hard work I deserved a beer. Black IPA followed by my EPIC clone, fantastic after only six days in the bottle.

Ffs. It's pissing down which means no power today! Might run The inside wiring.

I'd like to brew... Maybe... Just maybe

My garage makes good for being able tobrew, although the gas isn't the nicest, I've got doors etc. open and I've just mashed in my Back Up Plan (Plan B Clone)
hit temp nicely, wrapped in camping mat and woolen blanket for 1 hours.
It's essentially a blodne ale, with belgian yeast, which i made a starter of 1214 on thursday, I'll most likely pitch the yeast after the game tonight..... go the crusaders!!
Got season tickets so, i'll be watchingthe boys in the rain.

WCIPA is brewed and in its 2nd day in the ferm fridge.
Massive amounts of aroma going on in there.

Check out the Blog for me details on brew day.
Under shot pre-boil and through some adjuncts managed to over shoot SG by a couple of points. Hopefully its ferments out nicely!

2 dry hop additions and then its in the bottle!

What a day! Power cables run undeground and in the shed, along withthe roof space at home, got its own separate switchboard and everything.
Things are really coming together now. Looks like my Plan b Clone isn't going to make the cut..... again. the high mash temp, and poor yeast viability have caused it to poop out at 1.020, so......... I made some golden invert sugar and ill add maybe 100 grams to hopefully get the yeast running, as i pitched over a packet of T-58. I'll probably bottle in little bottles and see how it comes out once its done, its no longer a plan b clone, i think ill remove some of the specialty grains and lower the mash tempo next time, then just use t-58.

Next up, Belgian Red ale, based off Leffe Radieuse, slightly simplified and no candi sugar to bump it up, hoping for a more sessionable 5.5-5.7% abv beer, which I'm hoping will have a beautiful bloosed red colour and very malty back bone from the special B. I have high hopes for that one, got a new 1214 packet, which i got for the plan b emergency, but decided to use it for thius, to get the yeast cake i need for a KWAK clone, a belgian dark/amber strong ale. that will ferment for 2-3 weeks then secondary for maybe another 3 and then "cool" condition for approximately 3 months while I rehabilitate my shoulder.

exciting times ahead for me. the blog says it all and will have photos up soon.
