Oh man, I hate blowoff. 

It's one of the main reasons I switched to a 10 gallon fermentor.

I stuck it in a carboy instead of a Speidel because there was only about 4 gallons of wort after the boil. "That'll be plenty of room" he thought to himself. "I don't even need a blowoff tube" SMH

Just got ingredients for a British Golden Ale. I’ve been drinking dark beers lately so decided to lighten it up this brew.

Avangard Pils malt was cold smoked with Beechwood. Will use some Munich, caramunich, and then midnight wheat for color.

Nice.
The Avangard was what I had. I recently got a bag of Weyermann Barke Pils. Damn that stuff smells great.

   I have a probably stupid question, how did you cold smoke it? What's your set-up?

I spent most of my money on beer, tools and guns, the rest I foolishly squandered on stupid stuff!

More Bitter...

93% Pale Ale Malt
7% Caramel 40
36 IBU Brewers Gold FWH
0.75 oz/3G at 1 minute
0.75 oz/3G at steep/whirlpool
S-04 yeast

It accidentally dropped to 55F. Not sure exactly how. I think a switch on the controller was half open/closed. I notice it was starting to ferment anyway. I am raising to the mid 60’s now.

I figured there would be a half ounce of chocolate in there somewhere.

You should haul your GF down to Rocket Republic Sat to do the Homebrew Competition. First time I’ve heard of a brew it, ferment it, package it, condition it on-the-premises brew competition.
