Bottled my DFH 90 clone yesterday. Tasted great already and huge hop aromas. Got EdWorts Haus pale ale to bottle soon. Just need to get more bottles.

i started a imperial maple nut brown ale sat. this is my first brew.
a new shop opened up in town, and i went for it.
i cut the maple down in halve. just checked my glass carboy in the basement and i have a nice 3/8 thick fermenting head on it.
i put vodka in the aerater. my brew man this helps keep things clean. plus a little extra booze doesn't hurt either. cheers

Brewed two batches on the deck last night in DC, just had to get the oil out of the Turkey fryer/brew pot first (Ha!). Made another batch of my "Maggie's Imperial IPA" (recipe below), that is by far the best beer I have had, then brewed a "Caribou Slobber" kit from Northern Brewer. Had great reviews and I was looking for a good sessions beer for winter. Both went well. Now the long wait.

Maggie's Imp Juice IPA:
Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: Wyeast 1056
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.078
Final Gravity: 1.017
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 days @ 68-72
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 days @ 68-72
Rack to Keg: 7 days


8.00 lb Light Dry Extract (8.0 SRM) Dry Extract 88.9 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 11.1 %

Hop Mix:
1.00 oz Willamette
1.00 oz Citra
1.00 oz Centennial
1.00 oz Apollo
1.00 oz Simcoe
1.00 oz Warrior

Steep grains to 170.
60 min remaining - Add 4lbs DME
60 min- add 2 oz hop mix
45 min- add 1 oz hop mix
15 min- add 1 oz hop mix
5 min- add 4 lbs DME
5 min- add 2 oz hop mix
Flame out
Rack to bucket (7 days)
Transfer to carboy (7 days)
Dry hop 1 oz hop mix, .5 oz citra (4 days before bottle/kegging)
Filter hops out when racking to keg (or bottle)
Excellent beer.

Yesterday I brewed a cocoa porter that I plan to add raspberry puree to after primary fermentation. It's my first time brewing this, so I'm excited to see how it turns out.

Bottled some of O Flannagains Standard Stout on Friday...tasted some out the bottling bucket and it was awesome. I can't wait until this is carbed and ready to drink.

5.75 gallons of a special bitter; 8.5# MO; 1# crystal 120; Northern Brewer for bittering, Fuggles and Willamette for flavour/aroma. 1.040 OG (low efficiency on this batch; no idea why).

Partial mashing for a 5 gallon batch of Franziskaner Hefe from Beer Captured. Wife's new oven has a "keep warm" function and I can set it to 150* to maintain temp. Don't know how low it goes, but it goes up from there in 5* increments.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
