I don't even mind the farts I get from my brewskies. At least they're worth it.

It's a shame, because I really like the proprietors. They're super nice and I can book a gig whenever I want.

Yeah, I plan to, assuming the beer comes out ok. We'll see! Taking a gravity reading in a day or two.

I was bummed. Wife is out of the area for most of saturday. Looking forward to brewing until I saw the weather report. Here's hoping it turns between now and then!

I just dropped my entries off at Barry's on my lunch break. I brought an extra to have a sample with Nick and Jimmy.

I brewed a 4.2% ESB, easily under the 4.5% threshold.

I think the deadline is this saturday so you might want to get them in soon.

crap! then apparently I'm not. No way I'll have a beer carbed up by then!! Tried to make a "black saison" with the second runnings from my Stone 15th anniv clone. I'll check tonight, but if it finished out, should be about 3.5%

Roxborough represent.

FWIW Philadelphia has excellent brewing water for most styles. Really pale stuff I cut with some distilled, but for anything amber or darker, tap water (plus campden) is great!

That's our local watering hole. I'm right over behind the Springfield Highschool. Sat all depends on how much I get accomplished in the garage (trying to reorganize to get some more room out of it, brewing equip is taking over the woodworking equip).
