Had a minor heart attack when I reviewed my HB stocks and realized that I only have a case and a half of drinkables right now--one batch in the primary, one just bottled a week or so ago. Boy, I really need to brew a few more batches...

Added a half gallon of some strong DME wort, along with some gueuze dregs, to hopefully breathe some life into my barely-sour Berliner Weisse

Btw, glad I did so. It's extremely bitter right now, so I'm happy it wasn't even more so.

I end up cleaning and organizing more than anything else lately. Mostly cause I'm poor.

Also read up on some styles I want to brew before the bitter cold hits. This year I don't think i'm going to brew much in the winter. Big hassle on getting water to the garage. That and i'm not too keen on having my keggle chill in the snow. Still would take too long.

Not today but last night I bottled a Honey Pumpkin Porter and ordered a new hydrometer test tube. $5 shipped from amazon!

Going to plan out a new brew today! Gotta keep the pipeline going

Love Bravo!

I bought some blowoff tubing, another 8oz Star San, took a hydro reading of my Harvest IPA with wet Michigan Cascades, and had a homebrew. Not a bad night.
