ah crap, I keep forgetting to send the schwarz recipe.  I sorry.

...looking good.  Those all your efforts, or is there a Myles beer in there?

I think they're all my efforts? Idk, it gets a little muddled with how we operate. It's just a team effort so I forget who's doing what. Sometimes I need to eat lunch or something so he takes over for a bit or vise versa. Lately I've been doing the brewing and he's been doing the cleaning and other house-type projects. Next brew day will be "his", a Hefeweizen, so I'll probably do the cleaning while he does the brewing.

And yeah! I need that schwarz recipe!  :P I think "my" next two brew days will be Dunkel then Schwarz... but we also have to brew some other wedding-repeat-beers for a local beer festival. Should be a tasty spring season.  8)

Hahaha. Love it.

You know, when I was pitching the idea of getting a dedicated lagering freezer a while back I just said, "But what about the German lagers? They can't lager themselves... (Insert sad puppy face)" I got one the next week. :D

I'd really love to have a lagering freezer, but I can't justify putting yet another fridge/freezer in my kitchen. I have a minifridge (DBF), fermenting fridge, chest freezer kegerator, and my main fridge. At one time had another freezer in there for frozen stuff...it just seems ridiculous!  I could honestly do without the DBF and replace it with a lagering freezer/fridge.

Those beers look awesome!

After my 50 year old fridge that served as my lager fermentation chamber finally passed on to its great reward (see picture below with me dropping it off at the transfer station) in July, I have moped around and haven't brewed any lagers for six months.  Until my employer decided to buy me a new small chest freezer that holds two 6.5 gallon fermentors, as a reward for brewing beer for the client Christmas open house.  Woo hoo!

Back in the saddle again.  Bohemian pils is fermenting in there now, Vienna next, Mai-Bock for the third and final pitching.

Amanda - nice beers! The fact that others may find the beers to be something that should meet the standard of the the beers that are the standard, I just don't care!  Your beers seem pretty correct.  Best of luck with your beers!
