Thanks for the congrats everyone! We are really excited (and a little nervous). My wife has been a trooper through it all, its amazing how the motherly instinct has kicked in already. She hasnt had the slightest craving of beer/wine/alcohol, and we both used to have at least one every single night. She also hasnt gotten on me (any more than usual) about brewing or drinking, even though I have consciencely cut back a good bit out of respect for her, and I'm also trying to start being responsible for once in my life lol.

Edit: Oh and to stay on topic.... I pitched my yeast for "Daddy's Pale Ale" this morning, a US-05 slurry from my last blonde ale, and I already needed a blowoff tube. And I still need to keg/bottle a batch of THA clone so I can use the Bells yeast for the "Baby Day Barleywine".

We plan to let the barleywine only to be drank/brewed around our little ones birthday, which will be in January sometime. Also have a mead going that I plan on bottling for the arrival.
Congrats on your new arrival, kids can be an awesome experience, hehehe...

On Friday I legged about 2 gallons of my lager. Today we finished it. This was my first keg ging experience. I wasn't expecting it to disappear so fast.

Big party yesterday and kicked two kegs. Gotta love those hot summer events... Or do we? Drank all my damn beer!

Temporarily homebrewless so I spent the day cleaning bottles and kegs and just finished kegging my dunkelweizen. My pipeline is in serious need of repair!
Beer is good food

Well I'm a day late but yesterday I finally kegged my Saison de pipaix clone clone and it was very interesting. Anyone who knows anything about that beer will tell you the whole kitchen sink goes into this beer- ginger root, sweet orange peel, bitter orange peel, star anise, coriander,black pepper etc.... and I let this one ferment extea long as the yeast wlp565 is known for a long finish but a low final gravity. 2 months later it finished at 1.002 from a original gravity of 1.056, tastes of cherry slightly spicy and a after taste of licorice from the star anise. I put it on Keg and am shooting for 2.8 volumes of carb.

On a seperate note I am the president of the Mohonk Homebrewers association a group of 40 or so members in the hudson valley at the foothills of the Mohonk mountain range. On Saturday we had our first annual brewbbq and showcased a ton a different beers and brought lots of family and friends to expierence the homebrew culture and enjoy the day with us. I couldn;t have been happier with the turn out and how the day went.

Made a 1 gallon cranberry wine and racked a 1 gallon Apfelwein that I plan on corking and storing for a year at least.

I climbed up on my roof, which is a bit steep, to wrap a stainless cable around the chimney, so I could string up my hops. They have more than 20' of line to climb, so I'm happy.

Brewed my first all grain, non-kit BIAB beer. And damn did it feel good. Broke in the brew kettle with the newly installed thermometer and valve, which made using the homemade counter flow chiller almost too easy. With as much fun as I had today, if the centennial blonde turns out even half as good as I am expecting, I'll be a happy man.
