mid 60s just 5 days after getting snow where I live. So the ground water was still really cold but the temperature outside was perfect. I brewed in a t-shirt and shorts. Great day to be outside and the wort cooled in less than 15 minutes. Perfect way to spend a Saturday morning/afternoon.

I really wanted to!! Unfortunately, I had a busy week and didn't get anything bottled so a fermenter wasn't available. Instead, I got a nice motorcycle ride in after washing. Beats doing yard work like the neighbors were!

I cleaned the garage.......I'm still cleaning the garage and sun is going down. I'm thinking about drinking a lot of home brew later and going streaking.

No, my latest ingredients won't get here until the 11th! I'm not far from you, down in Woodbridge. Are you an AG brewer?

Worked and had to watch everyone enjoy a perfect day:ban: here in Boone, NC but picked some goodies up on the way home. Smuttynose IPA, Bear Republic Red Rocket, Fat Tire (NC debut this week), Stone IPA, and a Sam Adams Imperial White. Nevertheless it was pitcuresque. :mug:

Has anyone had the Imperial White?

Yeah.. this monster has been lurking about the property since.. oh I dunno... the beginning of time or so..... I'm Fairly certain that Moses scratched down a copy of the Ten Commandments on it's trunk.....

That one has been threatening to come down for years... got hit by lightning about 15 years ago and had a huge scar burned out of it....

It took out about ten more trees when it fell! all considerably smaller than itself.

Great brew day today! Several of our "Lancaster County Brewers" members brewed a porter today for a 50g. bourbon barrel project. A wonderful time was had by all, I'm sure.:drunk:;)

Yeah, I spent the day running some cable between two pines for my hops. Had Sam's Imperial White. Not too impressive IMO. If you are expecting a wit, then you're gonna be way disappointed. It didn't taste bad, but pretty disappointing for being called "imperial."

I took advantage of the weather...inside haha. The drive to where I brewed was nice! Brewed an oatmeal stout at my place of employment, Troegs in Harrisburg. Having a hose-able floor, a hot water tap, several turkey fryer burners, multiple propane tanks, a counter-flow chiller, and a nearly unlimited supply of grain/hops/yeast was nice.

I was very disappointed to wake up feeling sick this morning and in no shape to start sanitizing. I was planning on brewing my Pacific Jade Pale Ale from AH today but unfortunately spent this beautiful day stuck to the couch. I brewed an oatmeal stout last Monday that's been bubbling away nicely. I may end up brewing tomorrow after work if I'm up to it.

I did my first double-batch weekend...beautiful days both of them. Foreign Extra Stout on Saturday and a pre-Tripel Belgian Enkle (so I can harvest some Trappist yeast from the Enkle and pitch the remaining slurry in an upcoming Tripel).

But I gotta get a pond pump or something...my tap water is getting too warm to get a good, quick chill. Takes a good 30-40 minutes.:(

Great brew day! My starter (that I thought was dead) finally woke up. Got my Ruddles ESB clone in the fermenter, pitched the starter and it's fermenting like mad!
