Ended up bottling my Caribou Slobber. Decided to give it an extra week bottle conditioning rather than staying in secondary for an extra week. Fermentation was done anyway.

The owner was quite happy to see me. Once more into the breech dear friends........

Tried my first kegged beer - the Whitehouse Honey Porter.
Needs a little more carbonation but tastes GREAT

Was freaked out because I had read the posts about contamination and infections last night....

Today I stared at my twenty-something bottles of Honey Ale and cursed it for taking too long to condition. Upon my last inspection it was very flat, even after 17 days, maybe because my house runs a little cold?? Also checked my order status for supplies at Midwest for my second ever brew, a Belgian Wheat. And just cracked an Old Rasputin. Hell of a day.

Brewed a 10 gallon all grain batch of my California style pale ale. I'm doing a series of beers all using only one hop strain, this one was cascade!
