I'm going tonight to catch the Double Mountain Krieks at 5pm. I've been working nights the last week so this is my first chance to head over there. Let me know if you are heading there, since I missed the "pitch" I would be happy to meet other project members.

Was it pretty damn crowded when you went to Cascade/Block 15 night?

Yeah, it was pretty busy and some of the beers I wanted were gone already. I didn't make it there til 8pm because of work.

I went to Puckerfest the night Flat Tale's brewer was there. Their Lemon Diesel was delicious. It was a Saison dry hopped with mosaic blended with a 2 year old Berliner Weise. Also Upright's barrel aged rye with raspberries was my other favorite.

Nice. I didn't make it back for the Double Mountain night. I did make it to the International Beer Fest though and it was the best yet. A lot of beautiful sours from belgium as well as two amazing beers from The Bruery.

I have 5 gallons pitched and fermenting for 'angel share' - It should be ready within 2 weeks. I am way behind- should have had this in the fermenter two weeks ago but summers are just too busy. I'll PM theveganbrewer in a week or so to arrange time to rack over into the barrel.
I assume we still need to top off?

I also made it to the International Beer Fest (first time there) and had some great beer, also did a few sours. Was a nice location and good time.
I didn't make it to OBF, I'll try to make it next year.

Hey guys, I decided to get out of brewing last week. I'm still on board with our project, but I've changed phone numbers and don't get on here anymore, so if you need to contact me, [email protected] will work if there is a need for me to come on here, someone please let me know via email.

Beer now smells like I think it should. It's gone from really nasty to funky, and now has the profile more similar to a Flanders red. Remarkable progress for a month.

Barrel project is still a go, I'm just not brewing anymore. Well have to decided what to do when the beer is done, perhaps split the barrel and then see if someone wants to take it and continue the solera elsewhere or not.

We'll miss ya theveganbrewer! And we shall brew in your name! Seriously round of applause for initiating and seeing this through fruition.

I would be up for continuing with the solera by housing the barrel at my apartment in inner sw.
