Packing it in and getting out of DC

Thanks for the grain Tommy. It is happily fermenting away.
Thinking about the next batch already.

Did Pearly’s have roasted barley?

PS. Thanks for the spiced wheat ale. I drank it last night. It was good.

They had a 1 lb bag of 300L. Worked.
Third day and still bubbling away.

Tommy. Thanks for introducing me to 256 Brewers.  Entered my first beer for the SMaSH contest last night.  I drew Vic Secret hops. 
Dwain I did what you suggested and dry hopped it after a late hop addition. Kept the bitterness low but still brought the hops flavor to the front. 

Low alcohol content though.  Should have been 6% but was only 3.2. I think it didn’t have enough oxygen in the primary fermenter.

Well done!  I wish I could have been there to taste it.

I have considered selling 1-10# backs of malt and 1-4 oz bags of hops at XEO plus dry yeast, WF, etc. Still haven't decided to go for it yet. But you can always put a bulk malt order though with me if you want.

I just put a huge order in at morebeer when they had a recent sale.  Apparently, I wasn’t paying close enough attention to my cart.

I bought a 5 lb. bag of GW C60 I didn’t need. I think that was in my cart from previous visit to the website. Now I have like 9 lbs of C60.

I also bought 3 packs of DAP! I wanted one to make a candy syrup. I have no idea how I ended up with 3 in my cart.

I always have stuff like roasted barley, chocolate malt, crystal malts etc at XEO. Right now I buy the bulk of my basemalt crushed so that's probably not something y'all are interested in but I can ad uncrushed malts when I place an order.

If anyone wants to just drive out and check out what I have you are more than welcome.

Keith.
Thanks. I was happily surprised.  Unfortunately I’m out of it now.  My son came over and grabbed all but one bottle since he had friends coming over.  My wife and I split the one we had left at dinner today. (It was a liter bottle so don’t feel to bad for me ).

I was bummed I missed your taproom takeover at the Nook. 
I am off this Friday so we were thinking about coming down for a pint and to get a crowler or two.

Are you having a food truck tomorrow?  We are planning to come down for dinner and a pint.

Unfortunately no. We are having a caterer on Saturday and every Saturday in July and hopefully beyond. Food truck have been challenging to secure for some reason.
