There it is, Best Interest. Toasty, nutty, subtle fruit, easy drinking. I cannot wait to share this one.
Finishing the cellar work I started yesterday before taking a break to share beers and meet a good friend’s new puppy. Now on tap, my Munich helles style lager, Testimony of Few.
Cellar work in the pilot brewery today. Deep clean of both draft lines then tapped this, A Pleasant Country, my collab made at @brookevillebeer. Next up, packaging and tapping my English IPA.
Finally picking up a keg of this year’s batch for the home kegerator.
The appearance is darn close, after a day or two for the newer batch to drop more bright, I’d bet they are indistinguishable by color. I think flavor is close but will blind test that soon enough.
Keg and draft line cleaned and prepared for kegging batch two of four of my best bitter, tomorrow.
OK, not entirely unplanned. I needed to clean the lines to put on the sixtle I took home of my first Pro-Am beer, A Pleasant Country, a barrel aged dubbel I brewed with @brookevillebeer.
Kegs are cleaned, sanitized and CO2 purged, ready for kegging day next weekend.
Relieved to find my problem keg holding pressure this AM. Problem was a gasket in the PRV, had popped loose during kegging.
Did an emergency CO2 tank fill before work. Tightened everything on the suspect keg, fingers crossed.
