hah! right? I'm suddenly sympathetic to the metric system..

Dry hopped my Wookey clone tonight. Grav sample was outstanding. Fermentation went very much as hoped for...took it from 1.081 to 1.014.

Can't wait to get this bottled!

I live in Brooklyn but I travel all over LI for work- today alone I was working in Rocky point, Southampton, west islip and Medford to give you an idea. I'm 6 months into the hobby, brewed up a blonde ale last week and just racked them onto 6 lbs of strawberries yesterday with hopes for warmer weather to enjoy it in when it's ready! Not looking forward to driving in the coming snow this weekend...

That strawberry blonde sounds awesome. Be safe out there man, snow is snow, but it sounds like under the snow will be a sheet of ice from the rain all morning on friday.

Hey what's up guys?! I'm in Levittown. I've been homebrewing for 2 years, been doing all grain brewing for just a little over a year.

I'm brewing Pliny on Sunday, regardless of whether I'm snowed in or not. On the bright side, hopefully it means I'll chill to pitching temp in record time

hey toast! nice array of beers in the sig.

Sark, I'm guessing that a two foot snow pack will get the job done.

i've done a canadian ale and an american pale ale. both from kits, very good but i am realizing the limitations of these kits and extract brewing. i've been working on a recipe for a kölsch using beersmith and trolling the internet for a rough parts list. going with a partial mash technique for this one. the ingredients should be coming in the mail next week and i can start. any advice as someone progresses deeper into beer world?

one thing i've learned is that gear is a very personal thing.. Im running a 10 gallon igloo and a keggle on a propane burner. My main issues is that i have a wife and kids that are a brew day distraction. I'm looking into ways to use electric heating to automate certain aspects of brewing.

With that being said, finding a decent mash tun and boil kettle is something you can use for years.. Quality valves, bulkheads etc are also good "investments"

Thanks! That's not up to date though, I can't seem to update/save my new sig. By the way, I couldn't keep my plans today due to the snow, so I stayed home and now brewing a Saison! When all else fails, there's always beer!
