    Update. Slowly thawed beer over a few days, gave the keg's a shake and let lager for a couple weeks, then put on serving pressure for a couple more. It's now VERY good!. No harm done and caught it before any damage was done to the kegs

    A couple weeks ago I brewed a big ~9 gallon batch of Gavin's Glorious Pilsner for a party coming up in June. Everything went way too well. Hit my numbers all the way through, fermented at 53F in the freezer plugged into Inkbird control, packaged into two 5 gallon cornys and dropped it to 33F at...

    SWMBO win!

    SWMBO here met my renewed interest in brewing with the mother of all eye rolls. But today I scored a minor point with her. She enjoys seltzer water as her n/a drink of choice, so since my keg of ESB kicked the other day, I filled it with water and put it on 25psi of CO2. Now she has some...

    German Pils Gavin's Glorious German Pilsner

    Had a few bumps in the road on this batch, not much experience with lagers. Left the brewpot valve open at beginning of sparging losing the first quart or two of wort.

    Lesson learned.

    After all the worry and a near sink pour, a week in secondary, cold crash, and carbonation in the keg resulted in a very drinkable beer. In fact, good enough to get a newbie interested in the hobby.

    Lesson learned.

    Opened the bucket this AM and took a gravity sample and added dry hops. 1.050 to 1.010 in 2 days! Had a taste and I don't think it will be a sink pour but there definitely some hot alcohol that lingers after the desired flavors fade. I'm ordering up an Inkbird 308 control this week to control my...

    Lesson learned.

    Fermenter sitting in cellar now, thermometer on side says 68`F. I'll RDWHAHB and proceed as normal. I haven't fermented in plastic in a long time so maybe whiffing through. A 1/4" hole made a difference too. On with the dry hops!!

    Lesson learned.

    I recently restarted brewing after many years away, catalyzed by finding a good deal on some AG equipment at a yard sale. First batch was a simple pale ale that came out quite good current batch is in primary now but not so sure of it being a success. As brew night grew late and I weary and...
