I’ve had only one white stout and it was from a local brewery. Tasted like cheap tequila, which I don’t think is the point of the style? But I’m pretty turned away from trying another.


Made Reuben flatbreads and found a lonely Hefeweizen in the fridge.

This “Stout” wasn’t a bad beer by any means. It was really pretty tasty. But there was nothing in the flavor profile that said “Stout!”. To be fair, this variety pack was canned on 1/11/2022. Six months, and change, probably didn’t help this beer.

Taking a break after an interesting brew day. Made a couple modifications to my Putt-Putt Pilsner recipe to try to bring it more in line with a true Czech Pilsner.
Couldn’t get my homemade burner to work and thought I was possibly low/out of propane. Swapped out 100 lb tank with one I knew for sure had plenty of LP… still nothing. Finally discovered some multi-legged critter took up residence inside the orifice and it was plugged. Disassembled, cleaned and had fire!!! Next my Cereal Killer wouldn’t crush my grain. Free roller wouldn’t catch and help pull grain through. Finally widened the gap and it worked like a champ, tightened the gap and milled a 2nd time. Finally back on track!!! Remaining process went well. Brewery cleaned, wort turned out great (a couple points higher than predicted) and in the fermentation fridge cooling down to pitching temperature.

Enjoyed the mixed variety pack from Sloop Brewing this weekend down at the family property. Took my youngest, her friend and our three dogs.Our oldest just started walking again this past Wednesday after having meniscus surgery six weeks ago. So she and the wife stayed home.
Lots of time hanging out with family, fishing, a few beers (it was damn hot), cut down seven dead trees and being outside. This is my happy place!!! Especially since there’s little to no cell service!
