Effect of light - these two pictures are of the exact same beer with different light:

Durin's Day.  I'd name that beer Durin's Day.

Ha!  I like that.  Huge "Hobbit" fan too.... I just might have to take your suggestion:)

The light of the setting sun caught this one just right for sure.   Citra/galaxy/Mosaic IPA .


Are you sure that's not Mad Dog 20/20?  :P

Very cool pic!

"Amberlucious".... This hoppy Amber weighs in at 7.1% and packs an IPA hop punch. It wouldn't be a stretch if I were to say that this is my favorite beer that I've ever brewed.

Color is Awesome!

Only 2 of my Kolsch left. Aging, but still really nice. Getting some oxidation after 4 months. I remember telling Amanda that CO2 purge wasted CO2. OK, I Get it now. Purged keg and bottled from keg. No purge on bottles. I do think CO2 transfer could make a difference as beer ages and longevity.

I just started purging my bottles. We'll see if it makes a difference.

My recent American Mild. First time fining with gelatin, really happy with how it turned out.

Kinda surprised by the flavor. Tastes like it has crystal malt in it-but it doesn't. Just pale ale malt, flaked barley, lyle's golden syrup and blackstrap molasses. Has to be the syrup that I'm tasting.

Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

Looks good. I am curious about the taste, I have never brewed with the syrup or molasses. Did they thin out the beer?

FG was 1.007. It's thinner, but certainly not water. It's carbed pretty low as well, 1.8 vols.

I mixed the Lyle's and blackstrap to make invert no. 3. I don't remember the exact proportions, I'd have to look them up.
