Kegging batch three of Open Access Ninja today. I will bottle next weekend as well as brew batch four.
This batch of An Untold Story features Triumph, the public hop I chose for Open Access Ninja. I will do a small bottling run to share with interested locals.
Cleaning my brite keg so I can carbonate my IPA, An Untold Story, next. Glad to go from no beer on tap to three, even if two will be bottled soon, one of those destined for shipping cross country.
I am back in the pilot brewery today. First I am transferring batch 2 of Open Access Ninja into a serving keg now that it is carbonated. I will bottle the batch this weekend.
Batch two of Open Access Ninja is going into the brite keg to carbonate. I will bottle it in a week then ship out to Carl for final packaging and sharing.
The last of the keg of cream ale. Bright to the very last drop. I am thrilled with my new fermentors. I am kegging my bret old ale this weekend then IPA the weekend after. Definitely rebrewing the cream ale soon.
Did some cellar work in my tiny pilot brewery this morning. Transferred cream ale to carbonating keg, cleaned a keg I emptied last weekend, then ran clean-in-place on the fermentor that held the cream ale.
This weekend I tapped Open Access Ninja and poured a quality control pint. More than acceptable. I will condition it for a week then bottle so I can ship it to Carl when he is ready.
I kegged Open Access Ninja today, should be fully carbonated by tomorrow. I am quite proud of how this beer turned out. I can’t wait to see what Carl thinks.
Labels for Open Access Ninja: The Brew of Law arrived today. Good timing, I will keg the beer tomorrow and bottle in another week or so. Bottles in these pictures are for display only, filled with distilled water and brewery sanitizer.
