A little green

Suz and I sampled the pumpkin spiced ale this past weekend with a friend but it seemed very "green". I'm hoping more time in the bottle mellows it out a bit and the flavors meld and compliment each other. You can definitely taste the spice part, the pumpkin part... not so much. It's drinkable, just not what I was hoping for.

Another week

It's only been one week since I bottled up my pumpkin and amber ales and I am dying to give 'em a try. Brewing has been kind of on the back burner for me lately as money has been tight and free hours to do so kind of short. But have no fear, this brewer is going nowhere...... as the saying goes:

relax, don't worry, have a homebrew!

Forever and a day

Been far too long since I've posted on this here bloggy. I've done all kinds of stuff and drank all kinds of amazing beer since the last time we spoke.

I put the Scary Cherry Ale into secondary on top of the cherry puree and added the Bret Lambicus on top.

I bottled the Blueberry Blonde for Kyle and RP

I had a buddy of mine who has been homebrewing for 25 years on and off tell me that my Scotch Wee Heavy was one of the best beers that he has ever had the pleasure to taste.

I picked up two bottles of this years Firestone-Walker Parabola stout. It says on the label that careful aging will be rewarded so I plan on testing that theory.

I will be putting my Ron's Amber and Pumpkin Ales into bottle tonight and might dry hop my second try at the Decimation.......

so much beer and so little time on this earth.....
