I have one brew that I do with the wild hops and I won't be getting those hops anymore. No clue as to their AA.

Well that sucks. I am prepping to head back to school next week but the wife is interested in heading your way eventually and see what you go going. Is the new cold room finished and do you have any pictures. I am looking to retrofit my shop and could use some ideas. Might just frame an area and insulate the hell out of it as i don't think I will need the full 1200 sqft at this point.

Let me know when you'll be in the area and you can come out to the brewery for a tasting.
Here's the cold room.

That looks great. So jealous!!!! I will let you know for sure but it will be a bit. I got screwed into needing more classes to graduate so my workload increased by another 3 units and we have the baby coming any time now so life will be crazy till December. I will drop you a line and keep living the dream.

I'm bar coded and in the grocery store and a mini-mart. Hitt'n the big time now.
Delivered another 2 cases of Porter to the restaurant. Bartender told me some gal sat down and had 3 of my Porters. Someone likes it.

Still dialing in the 1 bbl system. Problem with summertime is the warmth of the water. Even with the Therminator in ice water I still couldn't get down to pitching temperature. Minor technicalities that I'll just have to figure out.

I got those awhile ago. So far I've only completed the fittings on one of them but I have all the fittings. I just want to be sure where to put the upper outlet so I don't waste any brew but also don't get a lot of yeast in it.
