Patience is it’s own reward. I made this barleywine, Impending Human, a year ago for Tony on the occasion of the birth of his second daughter. I will package up a case of bottles for him to enjoy in a couple of weeks.
Final chore of the day. The beer going into the keg is my modern IPA recipe as a base. This time I hopped and dry hopped with Citra, Idaho 7, and thyme. Smells wonderful.
After a pause for lunch, the last of a batch of carrot dogs using The Brand New Vegan’s recipe that I made earlier in the week, time to push on. I still have a batch of IPA (with Citra, Idaho 7, and thyme) that I want to keg today.
Kegging beer today. Good thing, the IPA kicked this week so I had nothing on tap for a few days.
Best Interest, my English-style mild, going into a keg to be tapped momentarily.
With the help of everyone who took some bottles, we kicked the keg of Top of the World on Friday. More beer on the way presently.
Keeping busy, as you do. Also cleaned a draft line in anticipation of tapping my cream ale in a few weeks.
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.
Kolsch came out beautifully again. Destined for the tasting center at @marylandmalt.
And that’s the English IPA. Couple of experimental tweaks this time: changed a couple of hop varieties to see how they compare and dry hopping in the keg.
