Pilsner-y Lager-ish.  Pilsner-y because I'm using West Branch Pale (2.8L) instead of their Pilsner (1.5L) trying for that extra bit of color (4°SRM) and flavor without specialty malts.   Lager-ish because this is for my warm, pressurized lager method experiment.   Time will tell!

I brewed a English Golden Ale and an American Wheat yesterday.  Hit all the numbers and didn't have any problems come up.  It was a pretty perfect day.  Everything was happily bubbling away this morning.

On top of that, I think the Spring thaw may finally be here.  Des Moines has racked up 18.5" of snow above our normal average.  Most of it in February.  It's raining and thawing today and I'm ready for Spring.

Just finished brewing a California Common: c40 & Northern Brewer, of course, but also used Irish Ale malt (mostly to use it up, but also to see if it gives a bit more flavor).

I'm going to take another shot at an Australian Sparking Ale tonight.

It's pretty much the same recipe I used last time, but I have a new mash system now so I can do a slightly more elaborate step mash (and also with the continuous recirc).

96% Fawcett Maris Otter
4% Weyermann Carahell

Pride of Ringwood at 60, 10 and 5

Wyeast 1275

Congratulations on the milestone!   Of course, I will assume that's in fact your hundredth, period... ;)

Thanks!  Absolutely 100.

That reminds me of the engineer up the road that was featured in an LA Times article prior to the repeal. We have rocket scientists from all over the world here and, like I often do, he must have forgot his place. For the attention, the not so local constabulary knocked on his door just to remind him he is a resident of the Heart of Dixie.  http://www.fermentarium.com/industry/alabama-alcohol-beverage-control-pays-homebrewer-a-visit/. Here’s the article https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-2008-mar-10-na-beer10-story.html

...but of course nothin to see here. Just good ole boys watching football and eatin BBQ.
