I decided to brew the extract version of this and made 5 1-gallon batches using different yeasts. The yeasts I used were Munich, Nottingham, Safale US-05, Safbrew S-33, and S-04. For my tastes I liked the S-33 and S-04, but I am not a fan of using the Munich. At least now I know how different yeasts affect the beer now.

I've tried blackberries and cucumbers with this recipe. The former imparted a *very* light hint of blackberry (but I only used a pound or two). The latter got infected because I got lazy with the cukes. So yes, I've added fruit, just not successfully yet .

I racked a 5.5 gallon batch onto 6 15oz cans of tart cherries and kegged it 2 weeks later. The secondary fermentation dried out the beer and left if very tart. Not objectionable, but I prefer something sweeter. Still learning to work with fruit so more of the fruit flavor comes through. Next time I'll try cold crashing in the primary first then rack to secondary and continue to keep it cold to keep the yeast dormant. I keg my beer so I don't need the yeast for carbonation.

The batch that I did last summer I fermented on 3 lbs. of frozen strawberries. They imparted a slight pink hue to the beer, a great strawberry nose, and just a slight hint of strawberry in the finish. Overall I thought it was really good.

Will try this next time (and there will be a next time!). Normally I rack the wort on top of the sugar. I assumed that the wort and sugar would mix evenly as the bucket filled. Guess it couldn't hurt to give it an extra stir just in case.

I brewed this a couple weeks ago and measured OG at 1.040 and now it's down to 1.004! That's the lowest I've ever seen one of my beers. It seems to taste fine; I will probably bottle it soon.

Made this today for my first all-grain batch. Dropped a screwdriver by accident into the wort when I was tightening the hose clamps on my wort chiller. Those 2 things combined...I shall call it:

My First Screw Was a Blonde
