It would seem that I have been utterly sidetracked from brewing lately. It's not like the kegs are dry and the fermenters are empty, but I just haven't been able to find the time or inspiration to brew anything in the past few weeks. I like to have all my fermenters full this time of the year.

Keeping up with the standard

Iz took the kids to visit her sister in Chelmsford Friday night. I was supposed to be painting the house, but with yet another cold & rainy day on the horizon I found myself with some free time on Saturday morning. I brewed up ten gallons of the AAPA and managed to rack some beer, and perform some general cleanup in the brewery.

The Parti-gyle

Saturday morning I found myself with a little free time while waiting for the outside temps to rise above 40f so that I could finish up some house painting on the East side of the house. In true on the fly fashion I decided to make the 999 Barleywine. Mashtun capacity limitations prevented me from brewing up ten gallons, as a result I decide to collect second runnings and and make a small ale with Amarillo hops. Both brews were a success and they are fermenting away happily at 64f in my basement.
