Yesterday was a busy day (SWMBO was away), so I bottled up my Peace Pipe Porter and my Tomahawk IPA, and made a new "partigyle" batch. I tasted the Tomahawk and it was so good, I decided to do another batch (didn't hurt that I had the hops at home, either). For the sidemash I did a smoke Porter, and in the last minute I decided to add licorice extract so it became a Licorice Smoke Porter! The IPA was 8 l and is bubbling away in my 10L damejeanne, and the 13 l Porter is in high krausen in my plastic tun.

Vague knock-off of a Dead Guy clone has been going since Sunday. Pitched a decanted 2L starter of WLP007 and have been holding it around 60F. I realize this is low for the yeast, but it was burping by 2 hours after pitching and had a big blow-off after about 24 hours. As of last night, 3 days after pitch, it was slowing down a bit but still burping away. I've turned off the fridge to let it rise a bit, it was up to about 63F this morning. Hopefully I won't experience the early flocculation I've heard about with this yeast---I think between the big starter and a dose of Fermaid-K + DAP, conditions were pretty good for the little guys.

Sadly ... Nothing.
Plan on fixing that next week. Kids and fall sports really put a damper on the brewing. But brewing season is coming soon.

Just bottled up Pumpkin Pie Ale and have a Belgium Witbier bubbling away with a blowoff tube on. It has been going for the last four days and still bubbling away. Threw in some flaked oatmeal for a little more mouthful. Coming up in another week will be Sugar n Spice for the Christmas New Year Season. By that time my Aflewein should also be ready to go. Drinking Monks Ale and Honey wheat right now. Brewing season is in full swing for me. Not to hot outside or to cold to brew!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
