Racked my chocolate stout to the bottling bucket, I will bottle later tonight. I want to wait a bit to let everything settle to the bottom so I don't get any/much sediment from the cocoa powder in the bottles, and whatever else may find it's way in. Looks and smells amazing.

Just bottled my small batch. 10 bombers. First go will be at Thanksgiving, hopeful they will last until Christmas, but I doubt it.
I got a nice tall sample

ESB clone really trying my patience. Pitched with Muntons Gold yeast on Thurs eve it's Sunday morning and just now seeing a little action. Muntons says you can just pitch the Gold yeast dry. Anyone else had issues? Last time I used it, it flocculated like crazy within about 10 hours. I will never pitch dry again!! "Everything comes if a man will only wait." Benjamin DisRaeli

From yesterday afternoon - completed my mini keg cooler, then took it on its maiden voyage for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner last night. It successfully dispensed 3 gallons of holiday spiced cranberry ale.

Yesterday I bottled my Oktoberfest and this morning started a new batch. I thought everything went way too smooth this morning. Once I got everything together and checked my OG which was lower than I expected. Couldn't figure out what the problem but figured there wasn't much I could do but make beer out of what I got! That's when I discovered I'd left out the additional LME!
Happy Brewing Y'all!

Racked my pale ale into secondary and moved it and my fermenting IPA into the same closet at a lower temp.

Thus, the "hop closet" series of ales is born. Every time I open the closet, it explodes with hop aroma. So, Hop Closet Pale Ale and Hop Closet Belgian IPA

What did I do for beer today? I'm currently drinking it so that the workers at the brewery have a job and make more for us to drink while we're waiting for our next batch of homebrew to be ready to drink.
