Monday Night recap: “3 Days Late” edition


Oops. It’s Friday. Better late than on the weekend, that’s my motto.


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.
