I put my keezer back together.

I had it taken apart last weekend for a weeding. I used the shanks, faucets, and CO2 setup on a Krute copy. I was out of town all last week, so today is the first chance I've had to throw it back together.

I am back to four beers on tap at the house:

1) Dry Irish Stout
2) Biermuncher's Centennial Blond
3) Chocolate Milk Stout
4) Edwort's Apfelwein

I have back up kegs of the Chocolate milk stout and Apfelwein, but besides that, my pipeline is dry. I need to get to work, soon...

I kegged a strawberry blonde. I brewed a citra IPA that I pitched onto the yeast cake of wlp007 from the blonde, don't worry add the strawberry extract in the keg. I also tapped my first keg, no fridge yet so I threw it on ice just to see how it works. I had put a batch in that I wasn't thrilled with, it was only a 2.5 gallon keg. Worked really well and it was awesome pulling my beer out of a tap. I even filled a growler to take to a party tomorrow.

Checked for visual signs of fermentation on the 10 gallon batch I brewed yesterday.

Scaled down an American red ale recipe and placed an order with Midwest for more ingredients.

Was going to brew this weekend, but am waiting for our new digital scale to arrive - should be here in time for next weekend.
