Good grief.  Only one post for May and not a lot of brewing going on.  Life is busy! On the bad news side, my fermentation freezer has crapped out and I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get it fixed.  I may be doing a lot of Belgian work this summer.  On the good […]

This past Tuesday we had reason to celebrate as we found out we’ll be having a boy in August!  So, Callie fixed St. Augustine dinner (I’ll get her to post the recipe if anyone is interested) and I put the Dark Mild on tap and force carbonated it to real ale level.  We had some […]

After the results from Fugetaboutit 2010, I decided to put together some tasting notes for Wee Heavy #2.  I’ll also get scans of the BJCP scoresheets and attach them to the post.  Sorry, but the pics from the tasting turned out to be crap, so I’ll have to drink another bottle and get a few […]

Occasionally, I will try to post reviews of some of the commercial examples that I pick up.  Especially if I’m doing research for a recipe that I’m developing.  I’ll try to post them in the same format that I would use to score a beer in a BJCP competition.  Since these are my opinions and […]
