There’s a brewery here in MT, Überbrew, that brews a Scottish Ale they call “The Bruce”. It’s really good.In the middle of the mash on a Scottish Heavy 70/- that I am making for my brother in law, who is coming from Colorado with his family for vacation next month. I'm going to call it "Robert The Bruce". Smells wonderful on my back lanai right now. Gonna put this one on nitro! Have a great weekend everyone!

I originally read that as $4.50/PINT not 12-pack, and sat here wondering how the hell a homebrewer could make something that expensive...on my best day I can't do over $1/pint unless I buy everything by the recipe instead of in bulk and still can't even get close! Unless I factor in the cost of my equipment over 6 years....and my time...then I read it again, did the math (yes with a calculator) and kicked meself. I need another pint.I got strike water heating for a experimental batch of 100% 'store bought' munich malt. grains are milled.
Should be interesting, and REALLY expensive, this stuff is going to be like $4.5 a twelve pack! i hope i learn something, or at least it's really good!
We need a live stream channel for homebrewers. Just like SpaceX, maybe we can get some hot rocket scientists to sit around and comment on what we're doing...Was planning to brew a NEIPA today. Got the water all prepped, most equipment out, starter is done. Then a friend invites us over to hang out by the lake, and the yard work has piled up and it’ll rain tomorrow... I think I’ll push the brew day to tomorrow. Feels like a delayed missile launch every time!

I'll be the first -- welcome back.I'm excited. I've been nervous about resuming brewing, but after 4 dry years I'm making a yeast starter for a hefeweizen to brew this weekend. Mice got into my malt extract, and it was getting pretty old, so I'm mashing 3 pounds of red wheat for a 2L starter. All I needed was to take that first step.

Looks good to me.I'm planning on two batches this weekend, both are firsts...one with another first.
Saturday: Winter Seasonal
Sunday: First NEIPA and first time using liquid yeast.
Did the starter last night, planning on using Sunday. Guess I didn't screw it up, pic from this morning.
