All of the yeast is finally ready, and the malt is conditioning for the Bo-Pils Tomorrow.  It is going to be a long day, but I am geeked.

Did a  Hochkurz Double Decoction today, halfway through the 2 hour boil.  This will be a long day.

Still sniffing airlocks. IPA & Pyment.  And anxiously awaiting the results of the Upper Mississippi Mashout. Sent a couple brews there for giggles & grins.  Cheers!!!

No brewing. I need to finish framing my basement, and more importantly, the bar area. I did get a starter going today for a brew day Monday or Tuesday though. I'm planning an old ale.

I just finished the Bo-Pils.   Glad I did a Hochkurz mash and not a triple decoction.  It was about 10:15 start to finish.  Things went OK.  Chilled it down to 40F, cause that is what they are said to do in the Czech Rep.  That takes some time, but I do have a near infinite supply of snow to chill the pond pump water with.

Hope this one is worth it.

Check that!  Weekend plans have changed.  Smoking some 2-Row with Alder Wood & brewing the "Smokehaus Porter", a family favorite. Cheers!!!

Bottling a Scotch Ale today, and finished brewing up a chocolate cream stout.  Thats the most productive Saturday I've enjoyed in a while!
"Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

Nothing this weekend.   Doing a Centennial/Cascade IPA next weekend hopefully, unless I have to work.
