  • Apfelwein
  • Cinnamon Apfelwein
  • West Coast Red Ale
  • Blue Moon Clone
  • Grape Juice Wine
  • Pomegranate Wine Experiment. (is it really even wine if there are no grapes? Maybe a "Hard Pomegranate")
  • Nut Brown Ale in bottles.

The 2 cases of bottles are in their second week of conditioning. they are actually my first brew. The Red Ale will be bottled this weekend, the Blue Moon will be racked to secondary this weekend, and I will be brewing Kolsch this weekend as well! There won't be anymore room after this weekend!

I guess that's a good thing!

Impressive! I think you started brewing at roughly the same time as I did, and you're blowing me out of the water! I'm a little ashamed to have only done a couple brews plus Apfelwein ..... I gotta get cracking!

Yeah...I'm with you...Tally and I brewed our Nut Brown Ales on the same day but he obviously has made much more progress than I.

Make sure you keep us updated on the Pomegranate Experiment.

I used 2 1/2 lbs of brown sugar and a generous shake of the cinnamon shaker, and I threw 2 cinnamon sticks into the primary.

The sleeves came with the carboys. I got a killer score on Craigslist the other day! CHECK IT OUT HERE
The guy who I bought them from had his wife sew them to keep the light out. They are also good for storage because they provide a barrier between the carboy and other hard objects!
