So the wifey finally, after 74 batches, wants to brew with me.

F*ck yes.

She picked a couple doozeys, though. It's a weeknight, dammit...and I'm brewing a 1.090 Holiday Spiced Ale, and a 1.084 Weizenbock. I'm gonna be up for awhile.

Anyway, pics...





It's f'n HOT!



My first time using my new stirplate with "real yeast" (not lambic culture). It's just a vial of WLP300, but I'm really surprised that it's got such a crazy krauesen even as the stirbar is going...

Cute doggies!! Mine enjoy brewing with me as well. Not so much my wife, however (well, she'll help stir and siphon if she's around).

Man, I wanna go to sleep. Still got 25 mins left on the final boil, then the lackluster cooling that is summertime tap water on the mid-eastern-seaboard.

Had a nice crappy efficiency with the Holiday Ale, but that was to be expected. 4 points low, 1.086. Oh well. That's what happens when you don't feel like using enough sparge water to require a 120 minute boil.

The Weizenbock is, as I said, still boiling. I want it to be done. The stupid people who live in the clouds and make weather decided to drop some piddly rain on me, too. I mean, really...it's been thundering and lightning-ing for an hour, so I bring everything close to the house under the overhang, and wait for the downpour. All it's done so far is spit on me. Hmph.

It's late. I have 2 of the biggest beers I've done in a long time, though, almost under my belt. Here's to thinking ahead to the colder months. Mmmm...weizenbock...holiday spiced ale...f*ck yeah.

And yes, BM, she IS too cute for me.
