Default Finally found time top brew yesterday after a 6-month haitus

Travel, coaching soccer, work...just all got in the way. Luckily I had a good stack of HB built up but I suspect it'll be gone by the time the robust porter I brewed yesterday is ready to go.

Nice to be back on the brewing wagon.


Primary: none
Bottle conditioning: Robust Porter
Drinking: Saison Dupont clone, tripel
Coming soon: Columbus APA, Rich Red ale

Welcome back. I slowed down a bit in the summer, and am now feeling the effects- I only have a couple kinds of homebrew left! The weather now, though, is perfect for stockpiling. Get busy and brew!

Welcome back! I know what it's like. I need to build up some inventory before the holidays and my travel schedule kick in.

I also brewed my first batch after a 5 month hiatus. I had about 8 ozs of Golding's and used it all in a 5 gal batch. I cant wait to taste how it turns out. anyone have any insight here? I should be able to do a couple of batches per weekend for the next few weeks so i excited to have my premium beer back in production because I have been surviving on store bought at 8$/sixpack.......
