Brewed a Patersbier from extract. My last extract now that I have gone BIAB. The end of an era.

Actually I shouldn't say that I'm sure I will go back in forth as weather, time and recipe dictates, lol.

Busy beer day here! For starters I found some Lost Abbey and Port stuff at the store, they just starting selling in NJ, sweet! I bottled the batch of Summer Shandy the wife requested and since I split it between 3 yeasts I had to rack off and then wash 3 different carboys. I also sprinkled a bit of US 05 in some bottles of barley wine I had brewed back in August for my upcoming birthday. I popped a bottle yesterday and its totally flat so I am assuming that the 1056 quit on me, which it earned it did get it to 12%. I also washed yeast today for the first time. I want to develop a house recipe pale ale and make it as cheaply as possible so I am learning to wash yeast. Along the same lines I ordered a pound of citra leaf hops and 6 oz of pellets (dry hop) for the pale ale. I also laid out everything for tomorrow since I am going to brew Denny's Rye IPA. Now I am just relaxing with some Lost Abbey Devotion.

Yo, dry hopped a Orval clone that I brewed in March!

Brewed Orfy's Boddington's clone.

Rehydrated dry yeast properly for the first time per instructions in Yeast... I'll agree with the guy above me, great book.

Bought "Designing Great Beers" and a 2000 mL flask so I can finally begin making starters and harvesting yeast. I know homebrewing saves you money on beer but when you are buying 2 packs of yeast to ensure you pitch the correct amount for a batch, it really starts getting expensive! Now I should be able to wash the yeast, make a starter, and even hopefully start harvesting yeast from some commercial brews to clone them as best as possible.

Blended a bitter with a pale ale because I needed the space\kegs and gave a good clean to the inside of my kegerator, oh and while I was at it I defrosted the feezer bit that holds frozen worts for starters etc.
I had to transfer my washed yeast collection to my other 'food fridge' whilst I was cleaning so as not to awaken them too much. I dont think the food minded being out on the side all afternoon
