Bottled Yesterday!

I am very happy with both brews. As my first all-grain, I'm finally happy that the color I had in my head came out in the beer.
Picked up some berries and peaches at the farmers' mkt yesterday to maybe fool around with some syrups for the berliner- though I like it just fine straight.

Saison ended up at 1.001
Berliner at 1.012

Can't wait to taste them with bubbles!

Nice! I bottled mine up on Tuesday. It turned out plenty sour, that's for sure. My wife smelled the sample and said it smelled like lemonade to her. I pretty much made it because she liked a Berliner at a local brewery, so I'm glad she responded so well to it at this point.

I'm excited for the bubbles, too!

On deck - a few single hopped pale ales - Cascade, Calypso, and Legacy
Primary/Secondary - Chris' Tall Ale (a Belgian golden ale); The Land of Pils and Honey, an imperial Saison with Clover Honey; Northern Brewer's Oud Bruin de Table / nada
