I’m done, and I’m spent. I committed myself to catching up on brewing tasks this weekend, and I did.
Yesterday, I filled and capped 45 bottles of my Yam-tastic Oil Change Porter. I had a sip of the uncarbonated beer and I can’t wait to have it when it’s finished!
Today, I started Simon’s Misery Yam Ale.
I went ahead and started the one-gallon Irish red ale as well, to see how much easier it might be to work with 1/5 the volume. Let’s say it was a joy. I see a gallon brew a week in my future. (I have four more one-gallon carboys, so I can do that!)
The back-log is still full of items. I checked through my inventory this morning and realized I still needed a couple of ingredients for my Hennepin clone. I also have not yet recieved my heather bock kit and other gruit ingredients. That will be next weekend’s brew, I suspect.
All told, it was a successful, albeit exhausting, weekend in the brew-kitchen.
Next weekend, it might be more of the same. We’ll see!
