I'm envious!
Great build.

Thanks, I'm gonna brew again Friday and try a Vienna Lager. I am going to look into a bulk purchase of the base malt now I,m getting a feel for what I want. Tried my second batch going into secondary "beechwood blast" and it is good as well but not exactly my style. I brewed a few batches for friends who helped with the build along the way and and this one was a request. I like a beer with a little more body.

Did you ferment on beechwood spirals? I think they're supposed to be flavor neutral.

No, this one was a HBS special and did not mention the wood spirals. I am not a fan of real light beers and or American style lagers like Bud, Coors, etc. What I sampled was like a Coors flavor and color. Iv'e heard of the wood spirals but was not mentioned in this recepie, sounds interesting. I don't think I will be brewing this one again.

Ah, I was thinking maybe you tried to do some "Beechwood Aging" like Budweiser.

Your too kind..and welcome to stop by if your ever in the southern MD area.

I would be divorced but my wife of 16 years started drinking with me about two years ago and was the best thing that ever happened to our relationship. Besides I convinced her that brewing was going to replace fishing....Need a boat??

Their Beechwood blast is good. I made it once with sweet orange peel and .5 oz coriander. It was delicious.

I didn't add anything special to mine but that orange peel sounds like a nice touch. Some friends came by last night and I think we pretty much finished it off. It's drinkable but a little to light and bland for me. Seems to get better with age. Next up is their Pennsylvania style lager I just put on co2 last week. Planning on taking this one on vacation with me so my family can check it out. I'm happily surprised that all my beers have been clean and drinkable. Looking to buy some bulk grains now to lower the cost per batch. I also have a Vienna lager and a South of the Boarder in primary. Gonna brew the Moosehead clone recipe next. That is my favorite so far but the sample from the Pennsylvania lager tasted really good going into the keg.
