No brewing this weekend, but the MALTS are filling the Jack Daniels barrel Sunday with the Black Rye DIPA. ;)

Used 3# of Smoked cherry in a porter.  Found it to be muted.  could be the handling/storage issue. 

Had a Smmoked Marzen from a local brewery that pairs wonderfully with "Q"

Strawberries are ready here in Paradise, so Saturday will be Curt Stock's Strawberry Banana Cabana Mead. 8)

Congrats to Debbie, Ron and Denny, and a special thanks to Curt for his years of service.

Up here in the Northeast, especially around the cities, it's more along the lines of hand signals  ;D

In New Jersey, using the f*bomb, it's noun, verb, adverb,pronoun,preposition,particple, and standard greeting

Not this weekend, since I'm running a Firkin Festival Saturday.  14 Firkins, 20 breweries, over 1000 people. ;)

Weaz a big reason for liking baseball is that you don't have to stay glued to the tv to see everything. It's even better over the radio.


Used to get the radio feeds at night from Philly, Boston, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, St Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland when I was growing up in NJ.  Loved the hometown announcers.


I've had some suceess lately with a single hop IPA using just a bittering charge and dry hopping at the end.  Had a Nelson Sauvin IPA (11.2) 2 oz @ 60 gave me 66 IBU, 2 oz dry hop.  Grains were 2 row, Carapils, 80 L. for 1.066 OG.

Simple & let the hop shine through.

20 gal of Hefe with Col. Dustjacket on Sunday.  Frauline Dustjacket demands it. ;D

I got some great help from Banner.  They'll set you up with the soft goods you need.

25 gal of Black Rye DIPA for the MALTS Jack Daniels barrel with 3 other MALTSTERS on Saturday, complete with stuck mash  >:(

I like Punatic ascribe to "buy once, cry once".  S/S keggle or pot will be more durable than aluminum.

On getting a keg from Craig's list, it's a good possibility that it's a keg that was never returned for deposit, and that's stealing.  Get a keggle from a reputable source or scrapyard.  Even better is one that is being de-commissioned direct from the brewery.
