I'm outside in the beautiful spring weather brewing up a Kölsch as we speak. It just boiled. Should be a good one.
Beer, so much more than just a breakfast drink

Got my Janet's Brown in the fermenter last night. Hit #'s perfect. Only flaw was that yeast wasn't ready till this morning. Pitched a bunch of healthy yeast though and paid close attention to sanitization last night.

Had a successful first all grain brewday with a Vienna/Northern Brewer SmaSH. I would brew daily if I could...

I made up 2 gallons of wheat with DME .042 O.G.
and 2 gallons of Dark DME .040 O.G.
I don't give them fancy names, we just drink it.
2 weeks to bottling and 2 weeks to drinking.

Had some friends couch crash after last night's party and one is an aspiring brewer so we threw together a Belgian Blonde recipe and decided last minute to turn it into a "dirty" blonde with 8 oz of dehusked carafa III thrown into the mash during the sparge.

Big beer day Monday. I'll brew an all grain American Wheat and keg up a American Pale Ale and a Brown Porter.

In the evening is the first round of judging for the Cloudy Town Brewers Marsh Mashness competition.

A bit late to the thread but I brewed up a German Pils on Saturday - St. Patrick's.

It's quietly bubbling away....
