The rain held off, we had a great crowd, and we brewed a (potentially) great beer. Last night we brewed another Belgian witbier, though we used about 40% less fresh ginger. If Joel had been around we probably would have ended up using more ginger without Jeff’s knowledge, as Joel is what we call a “Ginger Fiend.” This was a popular beer last time we brewed it, so we’re excited to see if we can’t make it even better this time around.
A huge thanks goes out to Sir Melvin Pants (we’re trying to come up with a nickname for him since Melvin Van Peebles was already taken) for helping us figure out our fancy new chilling setup. Expect a more detailed post on that once Joel stops slacking. Until then, please enjoy this artsy shot of one of our fermenters, courtesy of Jeanine.
In other news, we kegged our Eye Patch Ale and drained the yeast off of last week’s barleywine, which is attenuating nicely. And I also think Jeff did some stuff with a spreadsheet. But that’s not really new… just boring. Thanks to all who came out, hope to see you soon!
