Tapped my 1st keg of cascade pale ale. It's my best batch yet.

Drank my week old hefe, not close to being ready, but already is very good. I can't wait for it to be ready in a few weeks.

Stared at my carboy of Munich dark lager for about 20 minutes and labeled it, not very interesting but my first brew!

Continued waiting patiently for my first lager to ferment. It's fermenting happily away at 52 F right now and I 'm going to raise up to 65 F on Wednesday pending a gravity check. Then it's on to lagering. Can't wait for October.

Completed my power supply conversion to run cooling system for my diy fermentation chiller. I have 12vdc and 5vdc to run fans, pumps or whatever.

Got the Ranco duel stage controller wired up so the next step is to build the actual chamber and start testing.

Got my last fermenter cleaned out,bottling bucket as well. Got about a case of bottles from last batch to clean & store. Then it's time to order my 1st PM kit from midwest tomorrow morning. Their cascade pale ale PM kit got rave reviews. Should go fine with a couple new stove heating elements...

Cleaned up a blowout. Brewed a cherry dubbel last night and pitched WLP530. I couldn't get the blow off tube to stay on the bung so I gave up and used the airlock, praying I would be lucky (even though my gut said, " Hernando, your a dumbsheit"). Woke up this morning to a mighty fine mess, came into work smelling like amazing beer. Fortunately, my director is a brewer and I got a good belly laugh out of him today and at least he knows I wasn't drinking on the job at 6 AM.

Well,still got about a case of bottles to finish yet. Waiting for the HBT givaway on ustream to come on. Some SS brewing stuff that'd make PM easier would be great...
