I missed the UPS guy with my AHS delivery so no brewing for me this weekend.

I do however have 2 carboys that need to go to bottles. One beer and my first apfelwein. I

may not have enough bottles, so the plan is to bottle all the beer and what I can of the wein, then put the rest of the wine in growlers for early, uncarbonated, yet still delicious drinking.

ROT! ROT! ROT!

Pulled the bag of grains for the amber out of cold storage & it got damp at some point. Heat-seal seams didn't hold. Mold in the bottom of the bag and the grain smells.

Bag for the Southern Brown grains is fine, but the hops have gone missing along with the instructions.

Too late to do much except pull a pint and think about what I have that will work. Maybe I'll just use the amber hops. Guess I'm brewing tomorrow.

I am working on designing a 5 gallon backpack tank. I am going to try to modify a backpack to hold one of my 5 gallon cornies, attach a little C02 charger and walk around with a picnic tap. Think huge camelback backpack. If it works out I am going to dress up like elvis prestley and give out homebrews straight off tap at my friends party.

Holy crap! Don't hurt yourself. If that doesn't work out, maybe one of the rolly suitcases.

Brewed at Rdwj's house today, made a new variation of VCCA, which now apparently stands for Vinegar Caramel Cream Ale.

Today was a day of firsts for me.

A new sparging technique got my efficiency from 65% to 72%.... yes!

First time I've racked onto a yeast cake (Wyeast 1056), saving uber money... yes!

Saved off a quart of wort for later, possible starter/gyle?.... yes!

Finally got my process down so I get the volume/OG I want... yes!

I love home brewing!!!
