Nope - they were sitting on the kitchen floor, and I turned around to do something in the sink - heard the pop, and it was over - wine all over the floor.

Rejoiced in airlock activity from yesterday's brews, took over a bunch of homebrew to the inlaws for Fathers Day.

Made a 10 gallon batch of edWort pale. Split between English ale 2 and American ale 2. Transferred my aprahop clone to secondary with fruit. Blew the airlock in 2 hours. Tomorrow for beer I clean a closet.

Took 3 cases of empty bottles off the hands of my local bottle shop (they do a lot of tastings, and end up with a lot of empties around they'd otherwise have to take for recycling, win for me and win for them), and picked up a few bottles of deliciousness while there.

Preparing to bottle 5 gallons of Hefeweizen (I was going to keg, but my Keezer isn't ready yet). Also getting things ready to brew a pale ale after I bottle. I'm going to bitter with 1oz of Summit, flavor with Cascade and Citra (1oz each), and dry hop with 1oz each Cascade and Citra. I'm looking forward to tasting this one.

Ugh, that is devastating.


Yesterday we did manage to get our small batch of brown ale bottled up - we got 8 bottles out of it, so I was pretty happy.

Today, I browsed around for auto-siphons - doing a gravity siphon sucks!

Hmmm...

Friday went to New Holland Brewery. Saturday went to Founders Brewing. Sunday trimmed my hops back a bit to clean up the undergrowth and spent some time organizing my brewery. Today I watered the hops, spent so time planning out this weekend's brew session (Ramble On Red ale), and spent a bunch of time researching Love controllers and DIY temp controls on the message boards.

Let my American Amber sit for another day. I'll probably let it settle and keg it this weekend. I brought it up from the basement to transfer to a keg but in the process stirred up the sediment. It'll be 3 weeks in the primary, and I figure a week or 2 in the keg and it should be ready. My taste this past weekend was mostly pretty mellow, and the reading was 1.008, down from 1.055. That fg reading sounds really low come to think of it and I'll have to check it again, getting another taste in the process.
