Hmmm......reminiscing over the past year.....I guess I miss the 10 gallons of tripel I brewed this spring.  Those two kegs disappeared way too fast.

Over the past year, I went to my first NHC and made my first sour beers. I've also gotten into making more lagers.

Looking back, I'd like to get better at sour beers.  2 -3 years ago, I thought I mostly preferred to buy them and let someone else make them. But I've made a few good basic sours, and used my experience with fruit beers to make a few pretty tasty fruited ones. Wanna get better.

My first one (Flanders red) is at the 1 year mark and my wife and I just tasted it and agreed that it is ready and tastes great, so I just put it in the keg. I plan on bottling about half of it after it is carbonated. The other two sours have a ways to go yet. I need to brew another one soon to keep the pipeline going.

When warmer weather comes, I'll be building mine up too
