Yeppers! My Hopped & Confused ale has been in bottles only 11 days,but it's single digit cold,& I'm fresh outta beer. But this ale thast thinks it's a light lager isn't too shabby for version1. Pretty close to what I had in mind. Now when they carb & condition for a couple more weeks...Whew,nice buzz & flavor...

Swung into the LHBS and hung out for awhile talking small batches. Looks like I am going to crank out a few 1 gallon batches.

Put my carboy in front of the fire and got it up to 90F. Still bubbling 5 days after brew day.

Started disassembling and cleaning my new (off craigslist) keg-a-rator. I need a tool to take the taps off I think. It holds 3 5gal kegs. I have 2 batches coming up soon; a honey porter and a brown ipa. Both oak aged. I split them with a friend so I will only have 2.5 gal of each batch, but I also have a 2.5 gal keg, yay! Anyone have a recommendation of which one to keg? Unfortunately the are both extract. I switched to all grain 2 weeks ago. I have a black ipa and a double oatmeal stout that should be ready and on tap in 6 and 7 weeks.

I also bought and built an industrial shelf in my room (off craigslist again) because I live in a small apartment and I don't have any room anywhere else.

All while finishing off the last of my first batch I brewed - oatmeal stout with coffee in it!

Made a starter for my Irish Red that I'm brewing this weekend and moved some beer from the closet to the fridge. Then I rewarded myself with some homebrew!
