Post by: 1vertical on July 11, 2010, 05:35:41 am
My weekend brew session came together nicely and I really enjoy seeing that happen

All the materials, all the math, all the ingredients.... :P

While eating off the 3 stooges plate. 

Agree... a good feeling to hit the numbers - it may happen to me sometime ;-)

I love a good vertical one hydro shot.

Your farmhouse is especially refined,
hitting your numbers and all. ;D

Good work...get your hay cut yet?

I love the idea of an 'merican farmhouse ale.

Cheers.

It is fun to hit the numbers.  I haven't been hitting my mash temps very well lately...always seem to be a few degrees higher than I want.  Ya think I'd have that figured out by now.  I am usually right around what I'm expecting for OG's though, which is nice.  But FG's I've been attenuating more than I expect.  Oh wells.

How bout your harvest?

I failed to hit my numbers...only 69 bales on 3 acres.
But it is still fun, stacking against the winter, even if your ingredients don't add up to what you wished. ;)

Whats with that number?? That is how many bales I got as well....weirdness.  I got a hint about it tho....
spend some coin on fertilizer....like the guy down the way....the mower could barely cut thru it bc it was so thick.
