Lighting the brewing lamp early this morning. What am I brewing? It's a wit style ale using a lot of kiwi and a hint of coriander.
Brew on!

Beer Review - Kentucky Bourbon Ale

Aroma - Heavy vanilla and whiskey. Very interesting. Slight honey and peat.
Appearance - Brilliant amber and very clear. The white head dissappeared quickly. Looks like bourbon.
Taste - Bold whiskey, sweet malt, and orange peel(?). It leaves a bit of honey sweetness behind.
Overall a very tastey beverage. Not a session brew since the whiskey is very strong. I would have loved to try a nice stogie with it.

Thanks Maureen!

Kitchen Sink Rye - Done

I threw together this IPA about 4 weeks ago. I had some spare belgian caramel, crystal, and 8oz of rye. Threw in some columbus and centennial hops. Racked it onto the yeast from Fluckey's Ghost, ending up with a final gravity of 1.012. It's very good. 
Care for a pint? Freshly tapped today! I'm going to offer it up for a trade with a neighbor who's rented a BBQ smoker for the afternoon.

Day One - The Yeast Are Happy

I just checked on the Dreadnaught and it's fermenting like crazy. Too high in fact. The temp is 76 degrees so I'm going start chilling it down to 68 over the next several hours.
It actually blew through the blow off at the top!

Friends Who Drink But Don't Brew

Tap tip #46 : Friends who want beer from friends who brew should always offer bottles. 

Time to fill these with some good beer.
