We brewed up some Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale on Monday. Which would have been fine, except we ended up boiling off over 20% of our initial volume. Which is far more than normal. What does this mean? We won’t end up with the 1.070 OG beer we were targeting, but a 1.078 OG beer. We shall see how it drinks!

Also, the weather. It rained for probably half of the time. Fortunately Joel brought a cute little rain slicker. I wish I had taken a picture. It was A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E. One thing I did take a picture of was this:

This is a close-up of our fermentation chamber, which is currently cobbled together from 2 chest freezers, some duct tape, wood, and insulation. Methinks the “Energy Star” rating might now be a bit ambitious. Enjoy your weekend (like THAT’S possible). We’ll see you on the other side, basking in the glorious weekday sun.
