Started cold crashing my Jack Daniels American Amber; cleaned my brewing equipment for tomorrow's brew and got the yeast starter going. Great day.

Husband and I just got our first beer into the fermenter about an hour ago. It was an awesome experience and it made the house smell pretty delicious. Now it's hurry it up wait until it's ready and we can see if we pulled it off.

Congrats & welcome to the game!!

I've found that the interminable wait for my new batch is best distracted by planning & brewing my next batch! Just sayin'...

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

Kicked a keg (Amarillo Blonde) by bottling up a sixer to age a little while, and just just tonight I filled up my HLT with filtered water and added a campden tablet and a tsp of Calcium Chloride for tomorrow's brew, a mild I have nicknamed "Brown Trout Stout"

Bottled a gallon of Apfelwein - got 4 x 750ml bottles corked and 2 x 12oz's capped. Not bad. Also racked my JAOM (Mandarins & Craisins) to secondary. Smelled amazing like always.

Thanks! Yep, an American Red is up next And I've got a chestnut brown recipe that I want to adapt for hazelnuts... and I made the "mistake" of opening up my Midwest catalog and drooling over all the new kit I want... think I'll be able to pass the time. :-)

Brew day today. Just about to sparge on a Surly Bender clone. Then it's a gravity check for my other brew in primary.

Kegged up a chocolate stout, apfelwein, and a hefeweizen. Made another batch of apfelwein, just started the sugar syrup for skeeter pee, and coming to boil right now on an IPA.

It's a good day.
