Mischief managed. Mischief being remaining cleaning from yesterday’s brew day. Managed included not only rinsing all the parts that were sitting in PBW but also some organizing to optimize flow for next brew day.
Finishing a brew day, vessels on the new automatic washer. I brwed Rambling Digression, my old ale, first new batch of it since 2018. The new batch will not only be aged on oak, it will get innoculated with brett in secondary.
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.
