Went to the local craft brewery tasting room and had three pints. Mothers Brewery, Springfiels MO they had a Black Cherry Sherry Barrel brew that was great. They ae also releaseing a Bourbon Barrel aged Brown this weekend. Oh some times just drinking beer is all a man needs to do for beer each day.

I recruited a new homebrewer today. My buddy had tried to get into it during college but it always fell through. I was brewing my American Brown today so I invited him and gave him an in depth run down of the procedure. It was my first brew in a couple months and we hit all our numbers exactly. When we finished, he went home and immediately started pricing gear at Rebel Brewer. Of course we had some homebrews during the process and as soon as he saw how good they turn out, he was hooked. Welcome to the addiction!

Glad to see someone from my former neck of the woods. I lived in gainesboro for 8 years before moving back to Oklahoma. I'm going back early next year for vacation. Maybe I'll see ya around.

I picked up 10 milk crates last night for various brewing-related activities (carboy transport, bottle storage, gear storage, etc). Those things are extremely handy.

Picked up 3 cornies from someone who has too many, apparently. Is that possible?

So we're from St. Louis and my son and I are planning to visit mother at the end of August. We are going down to Indian Point at Table Rock for a couple of days of Just Guys time.
I have had the Tow Head blonde, what else are they tasting right now?

Went to Ommegang Brewery in Cooperstown yesterday. Did the tour and learned very little that I didn't already know from homebrewing, except that the small craft brewers do essentially the same thing on a somewhat larger scale. One thing they do to their beers that I and most of us don't do is lager their ales. They keep them at 34 for a month before bottling or kegging. They use corn sugar just as we do in bottles to naturally condition, and force carb their kegs. They also use a proprietary yeast, and when I asked if I could get some of if they sold to homebrewers I got an emphatic NO. I guess I'll have to try to harvest from the bottles that I bought there.

I also did a tasting of 6 of their brews, all Belgian ale styles as that's all they make, and had a Hennepin and a Witte in the cafe with lunch.

Made starters for tomorrows Dubbel and Blonde. The yeast for the Dubbel swelled up just fine, but the yeast for the Blonde was an older pack (late May) and didn't swell at all over 4 or so hours. I'm sure it's fine (Mr. Malty says 50% viability) but it always gets me paranoid.
