Well, aren't you a fancy packer... Mine never ends up that pretty. Nice job!

Repurposing another Brewers packaging as sent to me...I'm typically bubble wrap all to hell and back.

Well, this beautiful package job found it's way back to Ohio via AmandaK. I'll be hanging onto it for my next beer shipment. It should be interesting to see how many times this gets shipped back and forth across the country.

Nope. I have to wait until next week when my brew partner gets back into town. I have tried the home made cabernet sauvignon that Amanda sent to me. It is rather amazing and very well could have twisted my arm to test the waters in wine making.

cracked JT's German Pils few minutes ago....more to follow.

So appearance is crystal clear light straw- pale and slightly golden.  Great 2-3 finger foam that persists , eventually settling in to nice foam cap throughout the consumption. Lacing is very nice.
Aroma is of sweet hay, gram cracker.maybe tad sulfur which is good IMO.
Great mouthfeel- dry, crisp and Begs for another sip. Balance of hop and malt is very good.
Absolutely no flaws / off flavors.

JT says this is his 1st German Pils. Waiting on his recipe , but I will say this is a very good representation of style.

Thanks Ken!  I didn't realize you had already posted a review while we were PMing.  Glad you enjoyed the beer, my keg just kicked on Saturday!  Time to brew another.

Fingers crossed.  Sounds like a nice selection.  I'm planning a stout for an upcoming brew.  It will be nice to sample yours as I make my plans.

When I will get around to brewing again, I have no idea.  Little League started up two weeks ago and I think it will eat more time than I can possibly imagine.  But I can brew when the kids are older and want nothing to do with me.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat right now with the kids' activities. Brewing less than I have in years. Temporarily.

Don't get me started on the motorcycle.  I own one.  Ride it?  Not really.  But I do start it up now and then.
