Happy yeast, happy brewer. Always glad to see a batch take off. I will add some black treacle towards the end of primary fermentation for a bit of flavor and a modest alcohol boost.

Or, brew a beer inspired by history. Love this recipe, can’t wait to share it when it is ready in a few weeks.
Not bad for a morning’s work. The, ahem, after mash. About halfway done. Wort sample was spot on: pitch black, roasty, but still sweet.
Stopped by @MdHomebrew yesterday to grab ingredients for my next batch. Rebrewing my historical Scottish double brown stout to enjoy before the weather starts to warm again.
I have a high bar for weird. I like “Kipo” yet still find it incredibly strange. So, so strange.
Revisiting another beer I enjoyed over the weekend. Glad I snagged some cans of this one, too. Very much enjoying this again, as I did the one I cracked last night.
I’ve had this for a while, it was a nice bit of swag from a conference. I finally decided to start using it, to keep detailed notes for myself.
Revisiting one of the new beers from this weekend, originally enjoyed with its namesake on the day it was released.
I had a really good weekend. I got to hang with many existing friends, including some I hadn’t seen in a while, and with some new ones. Of course, there was a good deal of beer, too, both home brew and craft beer.
