I brewed a batch of Hefeweizen a couple days ago... But hadn't brewed since my mother passed last October whereupon I brewed a bbl in her honor. Half was a Pale ale that turned out phenomenal and the other was a CAP. Unfortunately, the CAP turned out terrible (in my opinion). I was reminded with every glass- kinda broke my spirit I guess.
Anyway, even Dave sent me some Belma hops to brew with. I didn't. No gumption. And over half a year's time slipped away...
But I'm off my lazy ass and back in the saddle again! Tired
of paying for expensive yet average beer I need to fill my two chest freezers with fermenters. So it is a Pale ale on Sunday! I'm gonna fill some kegs up and get ahead of the curve.
I really enjoyed brewing that Hefe- brought me back to the early 90's when I brewed my first.
Anyone else with similar experiences? How did you deal with them?
