Yesterday I kegged my pumpkin ale and attempted a mirror pond pale ale clone, I call it attempt because I somehow ended up with 1/4 gallon more than called for and about 10 gravity points higher. Was supposed to be about 1.052 and mine ended up being 1.063, not sure how my efficiency jumped that much, and it wasn't volume related, cause I ended up with 6.25 gallons instead of 6

Mid boil on the big batch...going great. Stoked to see that our source water is 70*F today. Chillin will be cool. Literally, for a change.

Also first time with a hop spider. Sink drain ring, scrap stainless tubing, 5 gal paint strainer bag, clamp. Welding labor was $20, so the whole deal was about $40.

Teaching a 101 learn how to brew today. Brewing a Mocha Porter with Mt. Rainier hops.

Very bold maltiness with a prominent roast element. Big chocolate bread notes. Medium bitterness with very subtle spices, with hints of licorice. Quite sweet throughout, finishing quite sweet with some coffee and chocolate notes.
