Brewed a Helles and Oktoberfest......makes for a long day when you step mash and 90 minute boil two beers. 8 hours worth.

I didn't really do anything, but my iPad smells like hops now. I had two ziplocs full of hops in my messenger bag,along with my iPad and nw everything smells from them

There was a bag of northern brewer and a bag of experimental hops 7272 from the John Segal hop ranch in Yakima, which I picked up at hpofest in Brooklyn on the other side of the country. Now I have to figure out what to make with them. These are very fresh, picked and dried, and we're packed into a brick for commercial sale, but John was giving them to any home brewer that wanted them at the end of the party. This was a benefit for BK farmyards, an urban farming group that cultivates my backyard. We will be growing hops next year.

Checked on the 2.5gal BIAB batch I did as my first AG experiment (Centennial Blonde). I brewed it 8 days ago, grav is at 1.008, and it already tastes great. Gonna leave it alone a few days, and if it's stable bottle on Sunday. And...not beer, but I checked on the apfelwein I put in the fermenter 3 weeks ago today. It's down to 1.002, clearing very nicely, and has a very refreshing taste. Can't wait for that one to be done.

Tonight probably pre boiling water to hydrate yeast, measuring hop additions and maybe weighing grains. Brewing another BM clone this weekend. Guess I could zest a couple oranges too.

Ran a CIP on the BK/CFC/O2 for the SMaSHs on 7/21. Hoping to do a double batch, not sure of the timing of the second mash in. I'll be crunching the timeline numbers at work tonight. Lucky for me my brewlog works like a timeline/checklist.

Found out that there's a LHBS about a mile from my office. Stopped in at lunch to pick up some gaskets for my fliptop bottles and a couple of carboy bungs. Nice shop, but they're a little higher than NB on most things I checked. Still...when I just need something minor it's more convenient to pop over on my lunch break than it is to make a special trip to NB.

Kegged 5 gallons of BM's Centennial Blonde (second half of a 10 gallon batch I brewed about 6 weeks ago) and harvested the yeast for an IIPA I am planning to brew in the next couple of days. I also think I am going to pull the trigger and order a Monster Mill today.

Kegged 5 gallons of APA, preparing to brew a PM Stout, and sadly I had to dump a batch of Hefeweizen that time just did not fix. Brewing a cascade pale ale in the morning also.
