If you are kegging, keep it cold and pressurize the keg to a few# anyway, vent it, then put a few# back on it. Your cold aging will progress, and you will have removed most of the O2 from the headspace above the beer.

Unofficially quality control testing of PBR pounder six packs. First five were "America's Best" worthy.

Just got my stir bar in the mail, finally have a stir plate. Just for fun and experience I'm gonna drink a few homebrews to experiment on bottle harvesting!

I sniffed the airlock on 10 gal Hefeweisen fermenting. Oh the bananas!

A 2006 study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year.

Another recent study found that Americans drink an average of 22 gallons of beer a year.

That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles per gallon.

Not bad.

Started soaking some of my stock pile of bottles to get the labels off. I don't really need the extra bottles right now, but it was something homebrew-related to do. I also worked out a plan for next weekend so I'll have time to do yard work, watch the Caps game, and squeeze in a brew day. I need to call the brew shop to find out if they still have Citra hops. Otherwise, I need to come up with something else to brew.
Kegged: Dusseldorf Altbier, Mild
Up next: Belgian Wheat/Rye, Kolsch
