Default So I spent my whole day yesterday doing "Beer" stuff.

I woke up and started sanitizing everything to bottle my batch of California Uncommon. I then decided it was time to start on my extract version of EdWort's Haus Pale Ale. After I had that cooling, I started boiling water for my next batch - Biermuncher's Centennial Blonde (had to rename this to Northern Blonde - Northern Brewer instead of Centennial). Then I started cleaning bottles, printing some permanent labels, and applying them.

Here are some pics:







These are my bottles, and I love them! Holzhausen is my last name, and my family is getting a big kick out of this picture right now.






A pic of my Hefe when carefully poured at room temp next to one that sat in the fridge for half an hour. Nice chill haze, huh...






Six gallons of EdWort's Apfelwein. Pitched the yeast on Jan 26, few more weeks to go.

Brewing while on the forums browsing on the 100"





The two brews, pitched and active, with the batch of Apfelwein in primary and California Uncommon in the bathtub. My Hefeweizen bottles won't fit in the bathroom any more, so they've been moved. Almost time to refrigerate those anyway.



All in all it was a fun day. I was expecting these to be a little lighter, but this is obviously the lightest I can possibly do with extract, even with late extract method. Biermuncher's looks like it might turn out golden instead of more amber. Only time will tell.

Its likely the best temperature stable area in your house, and I know you must keep it clean and sanitized, but I still cringe a bit at the idea of using the bathroom as a fermentation locker. Well that and my SWMBO would kill me if i tried.

BTW cheers on a great day of brewing. looks like you had a ton of fun.

That bathroom is the cleanest room in the house

Seriously, it's never been a bathroom - it even used to be a dark room for developing photos. It's more of an area to make room for whatever we're doing at the time. So it seems that it is now a brewery until we move out



Something interesting, though:

I came home to find the blonde at 69F and the haus ale at 70F, both churning, but the haus ale was now lighter than the blonde. Very light in comparison to my other brews, so hopefully they're both bright ones in the glass! I'm very much looking forward to getting to drink these.

Unfortunately, I'm about 150 bottles short right now. Not sure what I'm going to do
