Whooee, I loves me a good Vertical1 hydrometer shot 8)

First days of the decade...a porter bubbling
and a citrillo pale pitched here.

Happy new year all!

Just brewed a a nice malty Scotch ale on Saturday (Jan 2).  OG 1.104, how many shillings is that anyway?   :D

Took a while to get going despite a wicked HUGE starter.  Gave it another shot of aeration the second day.  It's going nicely now at about 56F.  Next up...

A double batch of Belgian Dark Strong split between 2 pots.  Mash 10 gallons worth and then boil separately.   5 gallons with an bit of star anise (perhaps...) and then some pomegranate molasses added mid ferment for more ferementables and another 5 gallons with an infusion of tangerine zest and then some cacao nibs in the fermenter, perhaps some vanilla bean as well.  When is the next posting?
