Bought the grains and hops at my LHBS for an Amber brew this weekend. They were all out of the Wyeast 1318 that I wanted though but said it will be in tomorrow. So I'll be going back now.

Went to Stienbarts, milled my grain, bought some hops, LDME and hop bags...need to find Pacman elsewhere I guess.

Racked 5 gallons of another Evil twin IPA batch, along with 5 gallons of a Dead Ringer IPA.

The color on the Dead Ringer was beautiful, slight hint of red to it.

Watched several reruns of Brewing TV while on the treadmill, and am currently sampling a saison from the new brewery in time. Also had to sneak another sample of the galaxy pale ale (I even took another hydrometer reading to try to convince myself it was necessary).

I broke with tradition & had a beer to take my pill this morning. Fllowed that with some chicken ramen. Still got some cleaning & sanitizing to get done. Too bad business got in the way of the money for a Christmas brew.

OK meant to post this on Saturday but I was too busy:

Completed my entire brew cycle in one day--

- Went to the LHBS and bought ingredients for my spiced Christmas Ale
- Brewed my Christmas ale
- Transferred my Doppelweizenbock to secondary--it tasted delicious.
- Washed and sanitized three cases of bottles
- Racked my foreign extra dry stout from the secondary and bottled--it also tasted delicious

This is what happens when you leave home for three weeks on a business trip and have two brews going while you're gone!

Already trying to figure out what I should brew next...

Been a while since I posted anything, but here goes: Brewed and Bottled a Chocolate Stout named Chocolate Santa in bottles a week now, probably won't try even one until Christmas. Also brewed and Bottled a Maple Porter with a recipe from another beer site, that just bottle on Monday. Brewing my first Clone Beer, a Red Hook ESB but didn't have enough Tettnanger for Bittering so used some Willamette that I had on hand, also first time using tap water filtered with a PUR filter for the Brew. Hope this works out. Wish me Luck.
