MY TITLE ISNT LONG ENOUGH

I just put a red ale (boxed wort kit from the local brewing shop) into secondary fermentation, and just bought a cornelius keg system for a christmas splurge. Beer on tap in my house in a few weeks

I'm going to attempt my next beer by boiling hops/grains on the stove. Should be interesting...

Got any more? I'll buy them off you, I'm completely serious too. PM me if you're interested.

Sounds interesting, but I think it might be one of those "never meet your heroes, because you will be disappointed" type things. I'm sure it's a great beer, but I think a lot of it is mystique because of the rarity. Practically having to fly to Belgium to try it has to factor in with the majority of beer nerds proclaiming it the "best in the world"

I don't have any sorry.

And it really is amazing. My brother has about 30 of them aged for about 4 years now. A fresh one is okay, but seriously, an aged one is the best belgium beer i have had hands down no competition.

Just picked up some Furst Wallerstein beers from Total Wine since they just started shipping to the USA.

Tried the Hefeweizen last night and it was pretty damn good, lots of spices and banana/clove flavors but it wasn't sissified like so many hefe's. Looking forward to the White Wheat/Pilsner that is the WeissBierPils and my buddy and me are going to split the Landsknecht Bier since it's a pretty heavy dunkel and I told him I would save one for him.
Also in the picture below picked up the Samuel Smith's Taddycaster which I've heard great things and Blackthorn cider to see how it was.

Ah Rauchbiers, one of my favorite unique styles. You either love them or hate them. One of my favorites is one me and my friends call the Ham Beer because that's exactly what it smells like.

Just brewed up another batch of beer this weekend. This time I went for a Hoegaarden clone. Color is almost perfect, can't wait to see how it ferments in the next 3 weeks.

Seattle or Portland? I'm debating moving to Seattle some time this year, that will be a huge change since I live in Orlando, FL at the moment. It all depends on how my interview with Amazon goes next month!

PNW just looks like the perfect area for me to live.

Here's two pictures of the Hoegaarden clone of mine, first picture is the very first day, second one was taken last night which is 6 days after fermentation began and I just added another 0.4oz of grounded Coriander seeds.

I love how different it looks in under a week, way clearer and stuff is starting to settle at the bottom.

Lagunitas sucks (brown sugar substitute) is amazing if you can find it. Also nugget nectar is around for awhile. Some great seasonals, going away quick.

I don't drink ciders very often, but among those I have had, I really like Blackthorn.


What did you think of it?
