Packaging now Amanda. Ship out Monday .


Ken,

I like those neck wraps. Are those intended for wine bottles, or do you have some beer-specific ones?

What are people making for their challenge beer? I'm doing a grapefruit IPA with centennial and cascade. Primary is finished and I just added the grapefruit. It smelled like grapefruit even before adding grapefruit.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

Sweet. Looking forward to it.

I made a simple bitter for my challenge beer. Magnum for bittering. EKG to finish.  English brown malt and Lyles golden syrup. It came out cloudy which is weird.  Bottles seem over carbed but whatever.

Mine is kind of an American Stout. It was fun to go back in time

My challenge beer is a smoked porter kit from LHBS, it's the second or third extract batch I made, just revisiting it and it fit into challenge regs

I will be packaging tomorrow for sending this week - trying to decide what local crafter to send along....and which of my beers are worthy of sending to a forum participant!
