Pieriang Spring, my hefeweizen with rhubarb, turned out very nicely this time. A week of carbonating and cold conditioning has helped it shine. Also a fine reward for brewing another beer today, my jammy dodger IPA, this time with Citra, Idaho 7, and thyme.
I rebrewed a recipe I created and only brewed once five years ago, a rhubarb hefe. Brewing my very first wheat beer back then was a struggle, yesterday went so much more smoothly.
Of course I am brewing today. Another batch of my English-style IPA, A Spring of Grass.
This gadget, my new steam condenser, is a game changer. Like my upgrade to pumps before it, will change what I am able to do in my pilot brewery.
Reward after an excellent brew day.
Ready to get started. Today is brew day. I am making Best Interest, my English mild. I will also bring doing two more Facebook live sessions, at 10 and 1, on Quiet Scheme’s page.

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.
Joined Kenny and crew for a double brew day yesterday. First brew was another batch of our collaboration, A Pleasant Country, which you can see here in the sight glass. Look for this batch in March. Always a delight to work and spend the day with everyone at @brookevillebeer.
