Ok, So we brewed my recipe on the 13th of June, and it was the biggest grain bill they have done at the brewery. We mashed in 450 kg (900 + pound) of grain and netted out about 8 barrels of wort. It fermented from 21 plato to 6 plato in the first 5 days( roughly 8.5% ABV and tasted great. They have capped it for carbonation and hope to drop it a couple of more degrees plato. It should finish at 9 - 9.5 % and will be ready to tap in a couple of more weeks. I'll let everone know when we are going to release it, so I can get as many of you guys down to try it as possible. We will keg off 3 kegs for GABF and the rest will be served at four local wilmington establishments. Beware though it has a huge hop bite as well. it has 14 pounds of hops, so it has about 70 ibu's. hehe......

OK folks, The beer is ready and will be on tap at the Front St, Brewery in Wilmington, NC on Friday July 4th. It kinda sucks that it will be that day, as most people have travel plans already, but anyone that can make, please come by and sample my homebrew , brewed on a 10 bbl system. I will be there, starting at 6:30 and would love to hang out with you guys. The brewmaster (Kevin) tasted it and said it was good, but would be even better with age. Oh well.....Hope to see you there.

Most likely, I will be there. I just have to figure out how to incorporate a business trip in to Denver at the appropriate time.....
