And finally, drink one of our 100% brett beers!

All in all... a good day!

Kegged my two last batches yesterday. Had a gas post stick onto the keg when I was cleaning it out. Thought I had done the ol' gas post on liquid poppet trick, but that wasn't the case. It's almost like it knew I was trying to get done by 5:00 and it didn't be be a ***** about it

Racking my 60 Minute clone to secondary. Been homebrewing for a year and it's my first secondary so it should be interesting.

In truth, I was oddly paranoid about my first racking to secondary and it went okay. In the end there were no infections and only a small amount of lost beer, so that was good.

Hopefully yours goes the same.

Me, I am trying to decide if I want to put my christmas ale into secondary or just bottle among all the trub/orange peel. Probably won't bother with secondary but I may cold crash so long as I can still bottle carb.

I have only cold crashed my last 3 batches but I am sold. They have all carb'ed just fine, with barely any bottle sediment so I get an extra ounce from every pour. It also makes the trub in my fermentor so firm that siphoning to the bottling bucket is a breeze.

My method is a bit unconventional. My fermentor is in a rope tub full of water to stabilize fermentation temps. One or two days before I bottle, I take out some water and replace it with frozen water bottles and ice cubes. Then I wrap it up in sleeping bags until bottling time.

Just gotta box up some bottles I washed yesterday from the bottle tree. Gunna do a 2 week FG test on my robust porter tomorrow. Hope it turns out to be done on the 2nd test Friday so I can add the vanilla & bottle it for Christmas.

Filled dad's 1.75 gal mini keg with an amber I had ready. Also filled a couple of growlers with Yooper's FYB and some more amber to take to mom and dad's for Thanksgiving. Also pulled a bottle of 3 year old Red Zin from one of my better attempts at winemaking for my family members who (gasp) don't drink beer.

Tossed some bottles in the fridge for thanksgiving.
My niece saw a local news piece on Craft Brewing. She FB me and asked if I would bring along my "craft Beer" to Thanksgiving. First I don't think of what I make along the lines of craft brew more like home brew. Second I am 50/50 of will they like it or be confused its not a real beer like Miller lite.
I plan on educating but not be a condescending ass. Just explain Miller and the like are fairly new recipes with corn compared to Stouts and the like that are 100's of years old.

What I am taking-
Honey Orange wheat
German Altbier
Andes Mint Stout

I am also cooking the bird tomorrow morning...my first ever.
