Interested in learning from others. I just tasted my MO/Styrian Goldings SMaSH. Will not be doing that again. Glad it wasn't 5 gallons. Styrian Goldings has promise as a blending hop but not a stand alone hop. IMO
I've only tasted one of them that I transferred to a secondary. It was pretty good...can't wait until its ready.

Bottling my third batch tonight, first batch was awesome, second may have a couple recipe issues, but I will see next week when its carbed up if its any better. My pipeline is finally set up and full. It's a good feeling

I'll be bottling the New Year Beer this weekend and the last sample was the best flat beer I've ever had. Now if I can just develop a little patience so that by the time the beer is really ready I'll have more than three bottles left.

I have the bbs book, but have pretty much just made up my own recipes....so it probably took longer to criss the line otherwise.

For a little while, I had a batch going every week. But that's just too hard to keep up on, so in trying for a batch every other week. To catch up, I'm brewing a brown ale for my dad and a Belgian tripel this weekend. Yay beer!

Yay for cleaning carpets instead of brewing. I am using my brew pot though to heat the water for rhe cleaner. I love setting the temp and letting it hold that temp while I do what I need to do. If I finish early ill probably brew something

The last picture...is that a plastic cookie jar used as a fermenter?
