Well My Stock is depleting quickly. I have 17 Empty cases all washed and ready to go, I am thinking that summer is coming quickly, so I better start brewing here pretty quick.
My Apfelwein aging experiment is coming along extremely well. I started it on November 1 of 2007, it has been in the secondary since December 23 of 07, this will be getting bottled on march 1. Now I need a really good beer to fill up the rest of the bottles, let them condition for at least 4 months before I start popping them open and enjoying their goodness.
Last year was my first year of brewing and trying all sorts of different beers and techniques, this year is all about aging and being patient. what are your plans for beer making this year?
